The day we get it 100% right

A well-deserved 100% with our three selections yesterday evening and it would appear we were in good company. What may have set us apart is the prices we took! With 1 point @ Evens backed down to a 1-2 SP, 2 points @ 4-1 backed down to a 6-4 SP and 3 points @ 3-1 backed down to a 11-8 SP I believe we were on the most backed horses at Wolverhampton if not the whole day at the best prices they achieved.

A Richard Hughes / Hannon double started the card and as much as I have admiration for Richard Hughes horsemanship, I wouldn’t want him on my side for a forecast. After a jockey change of Luke Morris riding our next two selections: Elysian Prince and Dutch Art Dealer sandwiched by a Jeremy Noseda – Cam Hardie win on Black Granite, Hughsie, beaten off in to second by Silver Rainbow, drops his hands on Lear’s Rock and is picked off by Pocket Rocket in the 8:00. 

All that can be found on the BHA website regarding the incident is ‘The Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of LEAR'S ROCK (IRE) revealed that the gelding was stiff behind’

The jockey who reportedly recently stated to ATR he would go to the moon for a winner finished off the card with a treble after riding Gimme Five to victory in the 8:30.

The most poignant (perhaps a little to philosophical) moments came in the 7:00 and 7:30. In one race the top rated was beaten in to second by a horse, as yet unraced on the surface, so unrated. In the 7:30 the top rated beat home three horse in to 2nd, 3rd and 4th that were unraced / unrated. There are times that unrated horses are an annoyance while at the same time, if they are placed well, once they have shown their colours we know what we have!

I am hoping not to suffer the same close cut finishes today in our 5 races of which we have interests ;) For those taking an interest in Dundalk tonight, I will be posting some EW selections on this page for the last two races once the reserves have been taken out. 


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