Letemgo led from flag to post with the jockeys in behind giving Tom Cannon far too much rope. Come the end of the race any fears over the trip or ground had proved unfounded and it was a rather easy 3.5 points profit.
Onto tomorrow and the first thing to say is that rarely have I opened up the cards to see some much dross. However every race will have a winner and every race will have at least one front runner…
Debt to Society 6/1 1 point win
This is a poor race. A very poor race but one in which we have on our side an out and out front runner (based on his last few runs, has previously been a hold up horse). Race conditions are fine and in fact he has never been out of the places in 3 runs over the 3m3f Sedgefield Chase course, including one win. His last few runs have been in hurdle races but provided he remembers that he needs to jump higher he should be there or thereabouts at the finish. True he may need better ground but in what is a poor race 6/1 is rather generous in my opinion.
The market has been shaped around the unexposed Apache Pilot. He is entitled to go close but he is usually held up and is inexperienced over fences, this being only his second chase run. 7/4 is not be a price I would take in such a race. Quite a few of the others have fitness concerns coming back from breaks including Urban Gale, Heez A Steel, Crafti Bookie and Over And Above. Certainly Debt to Society has no worse a chance than any other horse in this race and given he should get an easy lead if ridden prominently I think a strong case can be made for him.
Running Total: 2/5 +7 points
