Ironic winner

Wasn't it always going to be the case, that our first "mention" - i.e reference to a horse not officially a selection but one that we've been closing eyeing - goes and wins at a decent price!

Aye Well got up close to the line for a bitter-sweet victory in the opener at Catterick. Naturally our first "proper" selection in this "new era" ran unplaced. Oh how the racing gods have a sense of humour.

We had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.00         Folkestone           Verumontanum              1pt                            8/1 Coral/BetVictor/Totesport/PP/Boyles


Catterick 12.10 Aye Well (9/1)
Catterick 2.10 Mrs Eff (8/1) and Stop On (14/1)
Folkestone 2.30 Doheny Bar (7/1)

After Aye Well got up to win at Catterick, and Stop On ran a big race too, finishing third, we looked to Verumontanum to put in a good showing in the last ever hurdles race at Folkestone. He continued to be backed, going off at 5/1, but really never looked like getting involved and was pulled up. 

Summary of Result

Verumontanum, PU/10, 8/1 --- 5/1

On to tomorrow!
