Still hungover from last Sunday’s Open golf bonanza it had been a very quiet week on the horses, but that ended in nice style today.
Our confident 2pt nap Raising Sand (9/1 early, 7/1 SP) coped superbly as expected with the soggy Ascot conditions getting up near the line to land the money and a sizeable return for blog followers.
The earlier win of the well backed Flashcard (4/1 into 3/1) ensured a return north of 4/1 on totals staked on today’s Yankee. Respectable runs for our two York picks not being enough to land the third winner that would have leveraged returns to the next level.
Stay tuned as we head into the madness that is Galway week and Glorious Goodwood…
