Raul and Khun John provide a good start to the June campaign

I would hate to see the win of Khun John as getting out of jail but when several earlier selection had failed, some miserably, we found ourselves four points down on the day with everything resting on Khun John in last nights 9:00 at Kempton Park. Khun John was the 'On The Money' and 'The Actuary' selection and the only two pointer of the day, as such, I had always felt this to be our strongest bet. My biggest concern was that this was an Apprentice Handicap but had no concern that the jockey on our selection could turn the four point deficit in to a five point profit having taken 2x 9-2 with BetFred and Bet365.

Raul DeSilva had Khun John in a prominent sit having grabbed the rail from the stalls. He was then seen to give his mount a couple of tugs due to the pedestrian early pace and Khun Johns inability to settle. There was a little concern as pace was injected in to the race and Khun John slowly dropped back through the field. It wasn't until late in to the straight that Khun John was switched wide and became balanced enough to whittle down the lead to the cries of 'Raul' in the manner of a werewolf howl from a close friend of mine to take the race by a comfortable neck.   


Horse Racing Tips: 14-1 or 13-2?
