After a frustrating weekend, it's quite an explosive Monday to look forward to to hopefully start the week with a bang.
It's good luck to:
Prince of Slane Hexham 14:30 7/1 bet365 DOUBLE STAKE
King In Waiting Pontefract 15:40 11/2 coral DOUBLE STAKE
Pearly Star Plumpton 16:55 5/1 bet365 DOUBLE STAKE
Maraksh Kempton 18:25 9/1 vcbet
A nice five point profit on the day with Pearly Star doing the business well, rallying really well to win the 4.55 by five lengths.
King In Waiting ran ok to pick up the place money but Prince of Slane didn't do much at all.
And then on to Maraksh.. Interestingly I was just commenting on unusual drifts yesterday but this one appears very suspicious. Emma Lavelle's runner drifts on course in a matter of minutes from 8/1 to SIXTEEN to one... and then pulls up after two fences.
Surely she has to explain herself to the stewards for that one. I trust nothing untoward went on there but those betting patterns are odd to say the least given what happened, particurlarly as the gelding was well backed in the morning. Leaves a sour note in the mouth but at least the week's started positively overall.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Prince of Slane, 7th, 7/1
King In Waiting, 3rd, 9/2
Pearly Star, 1st, 7/2
Maraksh, PU, 16/1
