Close but no cigar today.
Lowdown, 3pt win @ 7/2 was well supported all day, down to 11/4 at the off.
He was considered well handicapped and led from the stalls and was kicked on into a clear lead inside the final furlong. In truth, the race looked all over and he traded 1.11 in running but was swamped late on to end up beaten a head into 3rd place.
Its nice to see the back of April whch has been one of our worst ever months, finishing over 30 points down.
We could make all kinds of excuses but there aren't any. Its been a poor month overall and we are hoping for a significant upturn in fortunes for May. We have lots to look forward to and the weather seems to be settling down so there should be no excuses.
May 2008 and 2009 both showed over 50 points profit so we are hoping for more of the same for May 2010.
Some great racing tomorrow but it may just be a day for watching rather than betting. We hope to have an account bet but at this stage its far from certain.
The 2000 Guineas is a no betting race from our opinion as the vibes are very strong for the favourite but he is much too short for us at 11/10.
Elsewhere there looks to be little each way value in the race.
We do have a strong fancy for the 1000 Guineas on Sunday though, assuming the rain comes as forecast.
Until then, thanks for reading
