In general I am fairly happy with how my bets ran yesterday. We got a run for our money from all of them to a point and with a bit more luck could have made a small profit. Art Mauresque lost out on a place in a head bob and Back Thunder tried to take the second last with him when looking like he could have ran into the places. But, that is racing. If getting 25s on Double Ross, a -0.75 point loss over the two races. SS for Hobbs looks a serious horse, and clearly that PU lto wasn’t an indication of anything serious. He looks to have a great attitude and along with Jonjo’s horse in second look like stayers to keep on the right side of, given their profiles.
Anyway, no tips or previews etc today.
A word of caution, which I have touch on a few times, about the state of the Pipe yard. All of his fancied runners travelled well before seeming to cut out quickly at various stages – either something wrong in yard or they were not as fit as they expected. But, his runners should be treated with caution until signs of more life – of course he may have a nice winner today, we shall see.
Any followers of the Jumps Handicappers hopefully had a nibble at the Oliver runner who received a wonder ride for me to win 7/1>5/1.
