So today we had three selections, one a non runner, and the other not placing, although that only tells part of the story.
TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.20 Catterick Gowanharry 1pt 5/1 generally 6/1 Lads/Totesport/Betfred/
4.20 Catterick Invincible Force 1pt 15/2+generally inc. 8/1 Lads/Totesport/VC/Coral and others
4.40 Worcester Mix N Match 1pt 7/1+generally inc. 15/2 Hills/Bet365 8/1 Betfred
Gowanharry was very well backed this morning, and the 6/1 wasn't around for long. Certainly there is no question that plenty was expected, the money well and truly down for this daughter of Choisir, she went off at 4/1. If only she'd started well.. Totally missing the break she was well behind and Phillip Makin gave up there and then, as she coasted past rivals to finish a never nearer fifth. One to look out for, although the secret's out now of course.
Then came Invincible Force who was a bit disappointing, after starting at 7/1, not really having the run of the race.
Mix N Match continued to be nicely backed before being made a non-runner at about 1 o'clock.
Invincible Force, 6th/11, 8/1 --- 7/1
Mix N Match NR
It'd be wrong to say that we've had bad luck to blame for our poor results this month, but certainly Gowanharry was one that may well have got away.
It happens of course, so roll on tomorrow!
