Highlight of the week
Regardless of what else happened Enable's epic win in the King George after a two-furlong slugfest with Crystal Ocean has to be top trump. As a young boy I was lucky enough to see the Grundy v Bustino duel in 1975 and never thought I'd see the like again... but this was right up there!
Low point of the week
A pretty shabby week for us with not much action and what there was spoiled by luck in running, non-runners and going changes.
It was a strange week all in all... the eyecatcher Just the Man on Newbury on Thursday night was the subject of a massive punt from 5/1 into 15/8 fav and won convincingly. We expected two selections on Friday but Magnetic Charm was ridiculously short so we skipped it and dodged a bullet as he ran way below his Royal Ascot form. We are happy to put a line through this run and will be keeping an eye on him. Arecibo was given a hefty bump by Encore D'Or as the stalls opened which meant he raced in rear for the early part of the race, but he came with what looked to be a winning run at the furlong pole, but was just edged out of it by the heavily supported Only Spoofing (same connections as Air Raid who won for us last week!), it is hard not to think he might have won if... still at 7/1 ew so no harm done.
On Saturday 2 of our 3 selections were non-runners due to the overnight rain and the change in the going. We replaced one but shouldn't have bothered as Staxton ran very flat. Our only other runner was Swindler who travelled through the race strongly, found a nice gap and came with a good looking run at the two-pole but flattened out and was beaten 3 lengths into 5th.
Stil we maintain a profit for the month and 4 figure profit for the season so it's not all bad!
We have a very busy week ahead with one of the flagship meetings of the season... 5 days of top class televised action at Glorious Goodwood, and we are also in action the 7.50 at Windsor tonight with a confident selection so will hopefully be able to add to coffers before Goodwood begins.
Windsor's selection is online now and tomorrow's Goodwood selections will be online around 19.00 tonight.
