Another good day today, with The Hague battling on really well to win at Brighton tonight. It looked like he'd win comfortably before the second, Blue Tango, came back at him. Kudos to Coral too who have paid out at the full 5/1 (BOG) despite there officially being a 5p R4 deduction on the race. Last summer I remember noting on the blog how often morning gambles are slightly more likely to drift on track when they're running in evening racing than normal day events, although, crucially, the results still remained solid. In my experience it's the morning market which is most key for these events, and it makes me grateful that virtually every bookie these days (on the internet at least) pay out best odds guaranteed. Will keep a close eye on this in the coming weeks.
Otherwise, Whotsit never really was going the pace before staying on at the end a little, but could only finish 5th. It all means a 3pt profit on the day.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Whotsit, 5th, 5/1
The Hague, 1st 5/1
