Sometimes one of these backed horses goes on to win and causes a bit of a storm, like today's winner for us, Border Lad. Now this run is reportedly the subject of examination now by the BHA, which appears to us as pretty ludicrous. This was only the horses's third start for his new stable, was on the receiving end of a tumbling handicap mark, and was also trying out 2m 6furlongs for the first time.
So on the back of Matt Chapman's rant on ATR the powers that be will take a long look at it, well I'm sure Alison Thorpe and her team will be able to explain perfectly well why a better run was expected today.
There's been an interesting post on "The Racing Forum" about it this evening, which puts things very nicely, which can be read here: http://tinyurl.com/6g9of3r
Anyway, elsewhere our one other selection which completed was well beaten, while another was involved in the unfortunate voided race at Carlisle.
