Good winner

We just had the one selection which ran in the end today, and Pretty Penny did it in cracking style at Plumpton this afternoon.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.10 Plumpton Humbel Ben 1pt 11/2+generally inc. 6/1 Lads/Totesport/Boylesports & others
3.40 Plumpton Pretty Penny 1pt 4/1+generally inc. 9/2 Lads/Totesport/PaddyPower & others

There was a lot of money around for Humbel Ben and it was frustrating to see him pulled out as a non-runner.

So we looked to Pretty Penny to do the business, and so she did. Given an excellent ride by Felix de Giles, she was produced to challenge as they turned for home. Cleverly switched to the rail, she stayed on all the way to the line to win by 3/4 length. It was Felix's only ride of the day, and the horse was having her first run for her new stable, and was fresh from a point succes. Well done to all concerned. There was lots of money about for her earlier but she drifted out to 6/1 to give us an extra 1.5pts of profit. That's two drifters who've done the business for us in the last few days, sometimes it's the early money which is the most telling.

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

Humbel Ben NR
Pretty Penny, 1st/11, 9/2 --- 6/1

A shame that Fakenham's off tomorrow already, but fingers crossed for Folkestone and Ayr as we look to follow up!
