Highlight of the week
Oisin Murphy gave Belated Breath a Champion Jockey's ride... always well positioned she dossed in front when he produced her but she took plenty of cajoling to get home.
Low point of the week
And it wasn't really any fault of Danny Tudhope's that Alright Sunshine managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of Victory. He was always lugging left when he came with what looked like a winning run then promptly downed tools when he hit the front allowing Time to Study to get back up in the shadow of the post.
It was quite a busy week for us but we might as well of stayed in bed as we more or less broke even after a good start.
Things could have been very different as we hummed and hawed about going ew on Graceful Magic 2 pts win at 5/1, and definitely have done if we'd have known she'd go off at 7/1. However she was only 5/1 in a couple of places when we posted and so we went win only... and yes you guessed it, she finished second!
Belated Breath won for us at 9/2 under a strong ride from the Champion Jockey elect; Oisin Murphy but Unabated who we had e/w at 10/1 on Friday was very disappointing and finished last. Connections blamed the soft going, but in that case, why run her?
On Saturday Ventura Ocean was a fairly speculative call e/w at 25/1 but he ran well and just looked to be running out of puff when he was squeezed out and eased up.
Alright Sunshine e/w at 15/2 was the one that got away and would definitely have won if he'd have been a straightforward ride, he made the difference between a winning week and a losing one! Major Partnership 1 point e/w at 12/1 finished a disappointing day off but never got involved.
On Sunday Perfection 2 points win at 9/2 brought the curtain down on a weekend to forget when no match for the in-form Dakota Gold
