Cracking 7/1 winner from sole selection yesterday
Cracking result for the blog with sole selection LORD AVON winning just as expected, blasting from the stalls, grabbing the rail and never being headed. The fav Bankston Ash never got a look-in and was in desperate need of another furlong; as was the 2nd-fav and runner-up Murbeh. LORD AVON has been a reformed horse since returning to the track in March as a 3yo with a win in a seller. He was bought-in by connections that day for £5,500. His dam’s half-bro was multiple 5f winner Justalord who won off OR85, and LORD AVON looks a better horse than him. He put 7pts profit in the bank and I only wish I’d made him a 2pt “nap” as 7/1 was huge value, with LORD AVON starting with an SP of 9/2.
Unfortunately, NIGHT CARNATION looks like she only just gets the 5f trip as the soft going and poor draw (9) did for her chances at Sandown.
All-in-all, it’s been a great week for me this week, one of the best in a long time in fact.
