Final day of the St Leger meeting and our ante post bet Leading Light will hopefully manage to win the final classic of the season. I have listed the bet below but it is not an additional bet, I had thought of putting in an extra bet as cover which was based upon over 20 years of trends for the St Leger but decided against it. You can read why in the analysis.
Pether's Moon was defeated by the slow pace of the race which played into the hands of Cambourne and ended up third. High Jinx added to the run of seconds after Times Up stole a lead in the final couple of furlongs. Sir Reginald ended our losing run and puts us ahead for the meeting which just shows you how things can change quickly especially with the odds we play at.
Nick tells me that over 50% of the last 80 races we have played in have finished first or second. The number of seconds is frustrating I know, but the wheels of fortune are bound to swing back our way, hopefully starting with Sir Reginald.
We may have a couple of selections for Sunday from Longchamp if I can establish accurate prices for the selections.
