Well that was timely. A boost to confidence, and more vitally, cash came the way of subscribers courtesy of a 3 from 4 yankee blast yesterday and an effective 25/1 return on totals staked.
Famous Bridge (15/8) kicked things off with a very easy win up at Kelso.
Then the nap of the day Bun Doran (11/2) rolled back the years as we thought he might thanks to some hugely generous handicapping, edging home and setting up an each way bid for the imminent Cheltenham Festival.
Dreams of a full house and a last minute cash bid to buy Constitution Hill before the Supreme were dashed when Lord Baddesley showed that the no-fluke element of his Betfair Hurdle fourth was not the merit of his finish despite the antics, but the antics themselves.
Not to be disheartened for long though as just a few minutes later useful flat horse Cormier (8/1) defied a market drift that made no sense as the Kelso stewards quickly turned a valuable hurdle race into a sun-induced near flat race. Blog followers didn’t argue as he duly landed the last leg.
A 25/1 haul could hardly be better timed with Cheltenham almost upon us.
Stay tuned for the annual Cheltenham Festival Guide available later this week, and then all the daily tips during the biggest week of the year.
