We're looking to build on yesterday with one or more of these.
Good luck to:
Folkestone 3.20 Edith's Boy 9/1 Coral 8/1 others
Folkestone 3.55 Purely By Chance 9/2 generally
Newmarket 4.55 Astrophysical Jet 15/2 Vic Chandler 7/1 generally elsewhere
A cracking day which could have been even better. When the first couple finished second there was a definitely a feeling of here we go again, but then Astrophysical Jet did exactly what was expected after a long, sustained and ultimately successful punt. It must have taken some cash to hammer into the market like her move did in a "competitive" handicap at Newmarket like that, but the horse totally warranted it winning incredibly easily. I know some people like to get involved in each way doubles/trebles etc and for those it was a nice return today, but for the win-only punters among us a 5.5 profit is fine and keeps things ticking along nicely for July. A good day for value today as well, Purely By Chance especially backed as if defeat was out of the question - I didn't see the race but apparently the pace of the contest was all wrong for him, a shame.
Still quite some way from righting the wrongs of June, but we're getting there. There've been two or three big priced seconds now this month as well, so results definitely turning around favourably again.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Edith's Boy, 2nd/8, 13/2
Purely By Chance, 2nd/6, 15/8
Astrophysical Jet, 1st/11, 9/2
