Again we look away from Goodwood in the pursuit of winners.
Good luck to:
Nottingham 2.35 Colorus 12/1 Ladbrokes (14/1 Sporting Bet)
Nottingham 4.55 Lastkingofscotland 11/2 Ladbrokes Stan James Vic Chandler
Musselburgh 8.30 Burns Night 11/2 Will Hill
Epsom 8.40 Flouncing 9/2 Ladbrokes
A close but no cigar sort of day, with a couple of seconds and a third out of the four selections.
Colorus was well backed and ran a decent race but was never really going to beat the winner. Lastkingofscotland was given a difficult task after having to come from a long way off the pace and stayed on well into third.
Burns Night was very disappointing, while Flouncing looked a likely winner tonight, almost looming upsides the eventual winner, the outsider of the race, but couldn't get past. Maybe not having the rail was the difference, but it capped a frustrating day.
So in the end a decent day for each way backers but win tickets thrown out and four points lost.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Colorus, 2nd/8, 13/2
Lastkingofscotland, 3rd/11, 5/1
Burns Night, 12th/14, 7/1
Flouncing, 2nd/6, 4/1
