Decent meeting at Fontwell

We had no luck with the selection Cinevator who ran like he was hating the ground at Chepstow which was on the soft side of good. As such, we dropped £20 and the bank brought forward is £2,070.
Today there are a couple of decent meetings at Fontwell and Hexham.  I'm most interested in Fontwell were there look to be some opportunities. Unfortunately due to work constraints I'm not able to write the detailed blog that I'd prefer to.
The novice chase at 2:40 could be an opportunity for SKI SUNDAY who ran encouragingly at Ffos Las LTO. Novice chases are not the best betting medium but we know this horse can jump a fence and has a bit of class. I can't advise a wager as I will probably only risk £5 of my own money if I can obtain 5/1.  Next up at 3:15, I really like the chance of HI NOTE to be in the places. The horse is fit from racing on the flat and has his ground. His mark of OR128 is fair based on last season's performance s and current odds of 14/1 are generous,  and while I cannot see him winning he has a great chance of placing, so I'm having £10 place-only on Betfair at about 4.60.

Fontwell 3:15, HI NOTE, £10 place-only @ 4.60 on Betfair


  1. After West Brit was withdrawn at 11am it looked like 4.00 place-only would be the best available, but HI NOTE drifted from 10/1 to 14/1 on course and 5.20 was available. My wagers were £5 @ 3.90; £5 @ 4.00; £5 @ 4.60; and £5 @ 5.00 = £20 @ 4.38
    HI NOTE ran a great race to be 2nd securing the equivalent of £41.60 profit after commission of 5%.

  2. Schoolboy error! Forgot to deduct the £10 stake money from the decimal odds, so the profit on the wager was £31.60 to a £10 stake.
