Would really like a decent day soon to get things back on track.
Some competitive racing ahead but good luck to:
Timocracy Market Rasen 13:35 5/1 paddy power
Prohibit Haydock 15:00 9/2 bet365
Lady Darshaan Ascot 15:05 11/1 coral
Golden Stream Ascot 16:50 9/1 totesport
Kingswinford Chester 17:00 5/1 coral
Wow, tonight I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. Golden Stream did the business well for a nice 9/1 winner to ensure a five point profit on the day.
But Timocracy aside, this could have been so so much better, with today being a great example of just how things have been running lately. Check out the sporting life commenataries here..
Prohibit - beaten a short head - traded at 1.11 in running
tracked leaders, headway over 1f out, ridden to lead entering final furlong, kept on, headed post opened 4/1 touched 11/4 £1000-£300 £1500-£500
Lady Darshaan - beaten 3/4 length
always prominent, ridden over 1f out, edged slightly right entering final furlong, soon hampered and struck on nose by winning jockeys whip, held after
(Now I didn't see this race but that would sum things up if the damn whip did make all the difference!!)
Kingswinford went on to run a solid race as well, losing by 1/2 lenght and a head, staying on really well but not close enough.
Anyway mustn't grumble too much, at least Golden Stream did the biz and we look forward to continuing the fightback tomorrow.
Confirmation of results and sps:
Timocracy, 8th, 11/2
Prohibit, 2nd, 3/1
Lady Darshaan, 2nd, 9/1
Golden Stream, 1st, 5/1
Kingswinford, 3rd, 11/2
