A 50-1 winner to start us off and all the 5's

When subscribers start the day with a 50-1 winner there is only one way to go, and that is down, and down came in the form of 2 points win Star Anise (opened 11-2) and Rock Of Leon (opened 3-1).

Although Aaronyow came into the Wolverhampton opener a 27 race Maiden, what was most appealing (other than the price) was that its LTO speed figure was recorded in company superior to this and was now racing in far lesser company, and as we are at bargain basement here, that is a tough order! Those with most appeal against it were not competing ov
er their optimum trip.

As with any 50-1 winner the line just couldn't come soon enough as Capelita closed the selection down, and the neck victory was plenty close enough for my fragile disposition ;)

We didn't have to wait too long to strike again. A no-show at the business end in the next for selection Pull The Plug (11-1) after leading early couldn't dampen spirits with d├ębutante, on this surface, the slow starting Autumns Blush (drawn 12 of 12 over 6f) winning under Adam Kirby.

From a 27 race Maiden in the opener, our focus shifted (for those still not riding on the adrenalin rush of the 50-1) to a 10 race Maiden selection in the form of Rock Of Leon (opened 3-1). Even in victory the horse appeared to be hell-bent on giving the race away in the steward’s room as it squeezed up Yorkshireman, on the rail for the vast part of the final furlong. Coincidentally, our first winner Aaranyow was drawn 5, our second winner Rock Of Leon was drawn 5!

The 7:15 became a battle between Plough Boy and our selection Black Dave (opened 11-2) with Adam Kirby adopting the same tactics which saw success on Autumns Blush. This time, to no avail as Plough Boy (drawn 10 of 11) came fast late and wide to grind out the victory under Chris Catlin.

Saeed bin Suroor might not be pulling up any trees on the turf but recorded another victory on the All Weather making it 6 winners from 9 runners (two of the three losers finishing second) in the 7:45 with Desert Snow (drawn 6 of 11) under Frederik Tylicki.

The 8:15 provided our final selection, and our only 2 point bet on the card with Star Anise (opened 11-2). There is something very special about a horse that, in the words of the commentator will come through the eye of a needle. It also speaks volumes for jockey George Baker who drove the selection through an ever decreasing gap between Rowlestone Lass and Zinnobar to take the race by ½ length.

Now it’s getting a little eerie! (X-Files music please) Our successes tonight are a 50-1 winner, a 3-1 winner, an 11-2 winner, and ALL drawn 5!

The final two races passed with nothing of much note with the jolly, 3yo May Queen (drawn 3 of 13) taking the 8:45 under Father Ted. A race where Noble Reach’s run should be ignored after the saddle slip early in the race and unceremoniously dumped Jordan Nason to the sand after the line.


The finale, I had given a wide berth too on the basis of competitiveness with any one of five horse taking my eye. A very wise choice in hindsight as not one of the five filled the frame with James Toller’s Saturation Point (drawn 7 of 12) taking the prize at 14-1 under Joe Fanning. A bigger surprise to me than our selection Aaranyow winning the first at 50-1. A result I will dine out on for some months ;)
