Eleven days to go

So November 1st is drawing ever nearer!

To celebrate this, over the next few days, until launch date, each day we'll put up a stat or two, a notable result or something which (we think!) is interesting to do with and the results so far this year.

We'll start with a nice positive one, the biggest single return of the year so far.

It was a 2pt win at 12/1 on Beauchamp Viking, which ran in a handicap chase just over the minimum trip on the the evening of May 18th.

This was his 15th career race, and the 6 year old was still trying to get off the mark. He'd shown signs of improvement in a couple of races in the month before, though finished out of the frame on both occasions.

Today though the money was down in no uncertain terms, with the Simon Burrough trained gelding nicely backed all day to go off at 13/2.

He was held up at the back for the first part of the race, and reached a high of 30 in running before gradually working into things. Three out he was in the mix and went second with two flights left. Over the last he went into the lead, taking over from McCoy's mount, the even money favourite, Lord Gunnarslake. Though Beauchamp Viking wandered a bit, he was always in command and stayed on, driven out, to win by four lengths and secure a very nice win.

Since that particular day, he's raced three times since and not won again yet, but could well be one to look out for again when the money is down.

This selection hasn't been the biggest priced winner of the year so far, but by virtue of the 2pt win stake rather than the more typical 1pt win, the return was the biggest. It capped an excellent day actually, as his success was the third win from seven selections in all, very nice!
