Unsettled Sunday

Not a lot to report today with a couple of well beaten selections.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
5.00 Windsor Riflessione 1pt 7/1+ including 8/1 Hills 17/2 VC 9/1 Totesport/Betfred/Bluesq/SportingBet
5.30 Windsor Invent 1pt 10/1 Bet365/Lads/Bluesq 11/1 Tote/Betfred 12/1 Skybet/Sportingbet

Both these were, in our opinion, somewhat hampered by the heavy rain seen at Windsor this afternoon. We're really not one for excuses and of course these things will probably even up over time but an annoying feature of this summer has been long spells of unsetttled weather and isolated bursts of extremely heavy rain, usually it seems half an hour before our selections are due to run!!

It happened again today, although whether either of these would have gone closer is debatable, both were so well beaten.

Riflessione started at 15/2 and raced prominently for a while before dropping away tamely.

Invent opened on course at 14/1 after drifting in the afternoon but was backed in again to 11/1, but was never remotely in it.

Confirmation of results with prices (advised --- SP):

Riflessione, 10th/12, 9/1 --- 15/2
Invent, 6th/10, 10/1 --- 11/1

A bit of a flat start to August, let's hope things begin to motor tomorrow!

  1. I also had Riflessione as a Back @ SP to lay off in-running as my pick of the day.

    Despite riding well and being quite fancied to win ....(a theme just recently at certain courses).... they couldn't lay him up fast enough.

    I don't know whether that's "great race reading", a blatant fix or a little of bith but certainly NOBODY wanted to back him!
