Prominence still the key at Kempton Park

After such a good June for The Actuary Horse Racing Tips the expectation levels were high for the 4 selections on last nights Kempton Park card. I wouldn't say I was bullish about the selections in the first, more quietly confident.

If the result was bad for me it was some what worst for George Downing who ended up under the hooves of Scarborough Lily, one of the selections putting pay to her chance. While the other selection Blue Deer, unable to get balanced quickly enough off the straight surrendered the lead to Shauna's Spirit before closing her down all the way to the line. Eventually going down by 1.1/.4 lengths.

Having searched the web for news of George Downing I could only find this snip-it from Clerk of the course Barney Clifford who said: 

"It looked like he clipped heels in the first race, that looked to be the cause of it. He was unconscious for about 40 seconds, then put on a stretcher and has now gone to hospital for further observation. He was alert and conscious when leaving the track, that was the information I got from the doctors."
Once again the card was dominated by horses racing prominently (Follow The Leaders at Kempton Park) I could be found guilty of not following my own advise with Rivas Rhapsody and Art Scholar. Both finished their respective races well and the former had every chance but could only finish second to Athenian. I do have to admit that Art Scholar was an error in judgement by me but when we have had such a good June we can afford the odd mistake :)

Don't forget Lingfield Park on Saturday with three All Weather races on the tail end of the card!
