Fantastic Fox

A cracking winner today in the shape of The Nifty Fox at Musselburgh, getting us right back on track after what's been a quite frustrating few days.

We'll start our latest look at results yesterday where we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)

3.50        Yarmouth              Kashmiri Star                  1pt                           6/1+generally inc. 13/2 PP/Bluesq 7/1 Hills/Coral/Boyles 15/2 SportingBet

Kashmiri Star went off at 13/2 and ran pretty well, but just not finding enough going into the final furlong, finishing fourth.

Today we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)

2.00         Doncaster             March                          1pt                           6/1+generally inc. 13/2 BetVictor/SportingBet
3.45         Musselburgh         The Nifty Fox               1pt                           7/1+generally inc. 15/2 PP/Totesport/BetFred 8/1 Hills/Bet365/StanJames/SkyBet

Racecourse debutant March traded at 1/3 and looked to be crusing just over a furlong from home. But looks proved deceptive this time as she couldn't quicken as well as some others around her, and she finished fourth, after starting a well backed 7/2 for Marco Botti. She should be winning soon though.

Then came The Nifty Fox, who was given a mark of 90 when he last won nearly three years ago. Racing off 67 today, he'd been suggesting a return to winning ways was getting closer recently and there was plenty of confidence in the market that today should be the day, going off at 5/1. He was ridden just off the leading group and quickened nicely when asked for an effort, taking up the lead in the final furlong and battled to a deserved success by a neck. Great stuff.

Summary of Results:
Thursday 28th June 2012:
Kashmiri Star, 4th/11, 13/2 --- 13/2

Friday 29th June 2012:

March, 4th/13, 6/1 --- 7/2
The Nifty Fox, 1st/8, 8/1 --- 5/1

Always nice to get a Friday winner going into the weekend. Let's hope we can end the month in good style tomorrow!
