It's nice to be reporting a good turn of fortune for a change, with our only selection today doing the business at Taunton.
It was in the 3m3furlong contest, the 2.00, and we had Rudinero (1pt) at 7/1. He was running a fine race, after going off at 6s, and was up with the pace throughout. However, it just looked like Glebehall Bay was going to stretch clear to leave us lamenting yet another second, before the Venetia Williams' trained 8yo fell three out while trading at 1.10.
That left the way clear for Rudinero, who just had to pop over the last three to win comfortably, which he did.
It's not a nice way to win, and hopefully Glebehall Bay's none the worse for his fall, but we've had quite a few hard luck stories of our own in recent weeks so perhaps it was just our turn for fate to look our way this time.
Kelso's off tomorrow already, and there are inspections due at Chepstow and Catterick, so hopefully there'll be some action for us to look forward to.
Confirmation of result with prices (advised and SP).
Rudinero, 1st/10, 7/1 --- 6/1
