Poor stuff with our only account bet today where we knew our fate before they started.
There was a good word for Princess Flame, 3pt win @ 9/4. A tricky horse to win with, her form had been well disguised and she was thought to be well in here.
By off time though she had drifted to 8/1 and we pretty much knew our fate before they started.
She actually ran ok but never looked like winning. She raced up with the pace but found little inside the last furlong and faded inside the last 100 yards to finish 5th.
On speaking to our contact the reason for the drift was given that she fretted up badly in the paddock. We weren't at the track so can't comment other than to say we won't be using the same contact again.
A poor finish to the month, albeit a slightly profitable one.
We also had our fair share of bad luck in the month with many placed horses including a couple that finished second, beaten by decent looking horses.
June has traditionally been a good month for us as the season has usually settled down by now. There is some great racing in June and we have many horses we have been waiting for that are due to run over the next couple of weeks.
We have a bet lined up for tomorrow at Leicester but that will depend on the price.
Thanks for reading
