A good day for the blog yesterday, despite not putting up a solid selection. The headline “act” was SEMI COLON who had the benefit of the double act with the 47% strikerate – Henderson & McCoy. Sure enough, the horse romped home a 6-length winner at 2/1.
Next up was The Devon National, and I very nearly struck lucky again. There was a notable gamble on my selection VAMIZI from 12’s in the morning to 13/2. He was going very strong as they entered the final stretch with 4 fences to go. Leading after the 2nd-last he went 1.33 in-running before succumbing to the challenge of rank-outsider Ammunition. Back in 3rd was the other noted runner on the blog – Drybrook Bedouin.
Lastly, BLACKPOOL BILLY came within a ¼ of a length of winning his race in a 3-way finish. Close, but no cigar!
There was excellent news for all horseracing fans and the industry with the mouth-watering win on the jackpot of over £1.40 million for just a £2 stake. Amazing, given the man went to the races on a free ticket, and only put a single line on for the bet.
There are a couple of jump meetings at Catterick and Fontwell, but only one horse interests me today and that’s RAPID INCREASE at Fontwell. He’s on my Horse Alert list and finally gets the going he’s been wanting – Good to Soft – and McCoy in the saddle. If he can’t win this off OR110 with 11st 12lb then trainer Jonjo O’Neill needs a rocket! Currently 5/1 with Betfred, those odds look very generous for a horse that is potentially a 130+ chaser in the right conditions.
You will be glad to know the Festival formstudy is going well, and I may be naming a significant wager on the opening days’ chase handicap sometime over the next couple of days.
