A 3rd in the Ladbroke hurdle ensured a small profit on that race and a small loss overall for the blog. The stats/trends shortlists continue to perform and highlighted one of the winners again. That is a big positive for me as if I keep getting races of 20 down to a shortlist of 4/5 that includes the winner, I would like to think over time I will pick enough of the right ones! Katenko was running well before a bad error which led to him being pulled up. It was a long way from home but he did appear to be travelling with some enthusiasm. It was frustrating to see Wakanda win and less said about my thoughts watching him cross the line the better. Cloudy Too returned to some form in the mud and although he was well beaten into third there was enough there to suggest that he will find a race again at some point.
No potential qualifiers.
Having highlighted Sue Gardner and G McPherson in my weekly diary as two trainers in form (while taking a look at a couple of old micro systems) they then proceeded to have winners at 16/1 and 3/1. Sue Gardner has three ‘qualifiers’ at Fakenham that should be worth a second glance. I have yet to look at the races or her track record, but as a Sunday bonus they are…
12.50 Storm Alert (14/1< for all)
1.50 Heres Herbie
2.50 Brendon Hill Lad
No more further bets.
