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/
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!
