Weekend Catchup

Three bets on Saturday and one on Sunday.

First up on Saturday was 2.15 Es Que Love, 4pt win @ 6/4.
This horse is the best two year old on the yard but threw away the race first time up when veering badly when the race looked sewn up.
If we could be sure he wouldn't do similar he would have been a maximum bet.

There was no real worry as he broke well and made all to win easily by just over 3 lengths.

Second up was 2.30, Triviality, 4pt win @ 9/4.
This one ran well on debut and was fancied to improve on that assuming he took to the turf.

He couldn't go the pace early on and despite staying on towatds the final furlong could only finish 4th.

Our final bet on Saturday was 4.45 Pink Sapphire 4pt win @11/8.
This horse is on of the nicer two year olds on the yard and was fancied tio make a winning debut.

Very well supported he went off an odds on favourite.
He travelled well and was in a strong position with a couple of furlongs to go but faded inside the final furlong.
A strange run and lots of money lost for connections on this one.

One bet for us today.

3.00 Baroque Star 1pt e/w @ 33/1 had been let down by his jumping of late.
He has been very well schooled and was expected to put in an improved performance today.

He started very sluggishly, jumping the first two fences slowly and was soon trading at 500 on Betfair.
However, he got the hang of things and was given a very good strong ride to get up for 3rd close home. A nice priced place bet landed.

A small profit over the weekend but we were hoping for a lot better.

Lots to look forward to the week including the Derby meeting of course.

Thanks for reading
