Short Headed

The small margins of success and failure in gambling was clearly highlighted yesterday when a profit of 2.5pts was turned into a 1pt loss in the last stride as the selection Appleaday, who has made most was short headed on the line. That’s history now and with a great days racing with four competitive cards at Aintree, Chepstow, Sandown and Wetherby. There was one potential selection at the 12.55 at Sandown in Knight Pass who is very highly thought of but I was expecting to see some odds against but as that is not the case then there is no bet today.

Disappearance Of Posts Was Only Temporary

Apologies for no posts over the past few days but I have been away on business and been unable to find any time to study the racing. Two meetings today at Exeter and Sandown and there is one selection at Sandown to hopefully get December off to a winning start.

Sandown 3.05 Appleaday 1PT WIN@5/2 Ladbrokes 2nd (13/8F)
This five runner handicap chase is not the most competitive and my preference is for the top weighted, front running grey Appleaday who has good form around the track and if the trainers comments re anything to go by should be up to winning a race like this as he comments on his website “Ran really well on his seasonal re-appearance at Sandown to finish third. He jumped superbly and we hope he'll win next time, possibly a return visit to Sandown on 2nd December is on the cards, as it appears to be his favourite track”. Beaten a short head - was caught on line having jumped really well.

Very Poor Selection Yesterday

Saint Denis was a very poor selection yesterday. Although a bit of money came for him before the off he pulled to hard and was beaten over a mile and a half out and was eventually pulled up. One to avoid for the future as appears to be void of ability. On to today with two meetings at Carlisle and Leicester but there is no selection.
