June starts in profit
It may not have been as spectacular as yesterday, but June started where May left off today, with a profitable day - Flying Applause doing the business in grand style at Nottingham.
2.10 Nottingham Flying Applause 1pt 11/2 Totesport/SkyBet/Bluesq 5/1 generally BOG
3.25 Cartmel Balganore 1pt 9/1 Hills 10/1 SportingBet/Stan James
7.10 Ripon Light The City 1pt 6/1 generally BOG
Flying Applause loves it at Nottingham and after being scrubbed along a couple of furlongs from home absolutely powered home to win by four lengths. He hit 65 in running! We had a r4 unfortunately which is a shame, so we lost 15p in the pound on our stake, leaving us with a profit of 4.675 on the race. He went off a well backed 11/4 so despite the r4 we got the price.
Sadly we couldn't follow up. Balganore was a massive drifter (SP 16/1) at Cartmel but seemed to try his best, being given a very positive ride, but he couldn't keep the pace up and lost by about 8 lengths.
Then came Light The City who started at 5/1, travelled well, hitting around 6/4 in running at one stage, but finished well beaten.
Confirmation of results with prices (advised --- SP):
Flying Applause, 1st/10, 11/2 --- 11/4
Balganore, 5th/9, 9/1 --- 16/1
Light The City, 6th/10, 6/1 --- 5/1
So June shows 2.675pts of profit after day one, a good start and we'll be doing our best to build on it tomorrow!
