A cracking 7/1 winner from our two selections, a cracking way to start May off.
The horse in question, Border Lad in the 2.50 at Exeter, who was very well backed right down to 9/4 at the off and the result was never really in much doubt. Always going the better on his first start for Mark Gillard, he led going to two out, and although a bit untidy at the last was always going to win, which he did by five lengths. Coral kept the 8s for a few minutes, and BlueSq and Stan James (bookies we don't settle prices with) had 15/2 for a while too, so hopefully quite a few of our members got bigger than our official return of 7/1.
And a quick note about our previous post about the England job, well it appears the FA were happy to only speak to one man about the job!! Good luck to Roy Hodgson, although why Harry didn't deserve 30 minutes of their time is pretty perplexing, if only to make it easier for Roy! Hey ho that's the FA for you.
