Going close

No return today, although Civil Unrest went close at Musselburgh.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.30 Leicester Sum Laff 1pt 6/1+ generally inc. 13/2 Hills&others 7/1 Totesport/Coral 8/1 Bet365
3.15 Musselburgh Civil Unrest 1pt 11/2+generally inc. 6/1 Lads/Totesport&others

Sum Laff was quite strong on course after opening at 8/1, going off at 6/1, and clearly more was expected than transpired, with Charlie Mann's gelding pulling up after struggling from an early stage. It really didn't look like his true running.

Then came Civil Unrest who ran very well from the front on his handicap bow, but was headed after the last hurdle and finished second, beaten just short of four lengths, well clear of third. He went off 5/1 favourite.

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

Sum Laff, PU/12, 7/1 --- 6/1
Civil Unrest, 2nd/12, 6/1 --- 5/1

A cracking day's racing to look forward to tomorrow and it's great that it's free entry for Newbury. Wish we could be there!
