Well that was a much needed boost to the coffers.
The day was already going well with the placed efforts of horse picks, Hors Des Combats and Soldier In Action, advised at 16/1 and 12/1 respectively. Following withdrawals the place double paid c16/1, although for SP backers the late withdrawals could have cost the place money on Hors Des Combats.
The day then got better still with the win of Frenchman Lilian Calmejane in Stage 8 of the Tour de France advised at 33/1 (Cycling: Time for a Break). The stage panned out almost to perfection and as we had hoped it would, and Calmejane’s solo bid from 20k out had us cheering all the way to the line, and all the way to the bank.
Stay tuned for more.
