A big day in South Africa but here the pursuit for a return to winners continues with a couple over the jumps.
Good luck to:
Uttoxeter 2.40 Mumbles Head 14/1 Lads
Uttoxeter 3.45 Jimbatai 6/1 Boylesports 11/2 others
What a sickening defeat for England, extraordinarily bad defending but it could have all been oh so different if it wasn't for the not given goal. FIFA have to change their stance on goal-line technology, surely to God. If that happens at least some good will have come out of today's sorry affair. Can't believe we have to wait another four years for the next instalment.
Anyway back here, Mumbles Head was cruising, and trading at 1.41 in running, when falling three out in the Summer National at Uttoxeter. Given up being surprised by this sort of thing now, this run is just horrible. Jimbatai didn't do a lot in finishing fifth.
Not a good day but we still look to tomorrow with optimism.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Mumbles Head, F/18, 12/1
Jimbatai, 5th/13, 9/2
