A busy end to the month, with a couple of double stakers included.
Let's hope they don't suffer the same "headed at post" fate as
Good luck to:
Doncaster 2.05 Bronze Beau 11/2 Coral 5/1 generally
Newmarket 3.20 Lord Theo 5/1 VC Boylesports
Thirsk 3.25 Chief Red Cloud 10/1 Lads DOUBLE STAKER
Goodwood 4.50 Goodwood Treasure 8/1 Bet365 and generally
Newmarket 5.05 Ghufa 7/1 Bet365 VC DOUBLE STAKER
A desperately disappointing end to July finishes with seven points lost on the day. At least the month is in profit, by 5.5pts, but considering we were over 20pts up just three days ago, it feels like a kick in the teeth. As usual there were some decent performances with some what-might-have-beens scattered around. Bronze Beau traded at 1.2 in running before finishing second at Doncaster. Lord Theo led around a furlong from home before fading a tad into third. Chief Red Cloud halved in odds from the morning before running a big race at Thirsk, looking dangerous but just not finding enough near the close to finish fourth. Goodwood Treasure didn't do anything while Ghufa drifted alarmingly in track and finished fourth.
We're still beating SP with the great majority of selections, and it's surely only a matter of time before things kick on nicely again. Hopefully August will bring some decent profits before the two month break.
