Well it was another good day for followers of this blog which kicked off with Sonny Red finishing 2nd beaten 3/4 length in the Silver Cup at 25/1, 40/1 in the morning. The big prices have just flowed and flowed all summer and its not bad for a free service.....some of you must be well ahead of the bookies !
Next up was the Gold Cup itself and whilst I didnt pick the winner I did highlight all of the Nicholls runners earlier in the week and Redford beat his statblemate Victoire De Lyphar at odds of 14/1, with both having a high draw as I predicted the winner would come from. The exacta paid £87.40 and to complete the party Genki and Johnny Mudball finished 4th and 5th to collect on ew bets too.
Astrophysical Jet rounded up a great day, as I have highlighted him as a 3yo sprinter to follow since his win at Newmarket and he followed up his win in Ireland with a further win at Newbury. He is now to be put away for the season as he wont incur a penalty for the Palace House at Newamrket early next season and I couldnt unnderstand Pricewise deserting him today.
If you want big price winners you need to keep in touch with this blogs regular posts and if there is enough interest going into the winter I will be looking at writing a Sprinters to Follow booklet for next season, so keep alive to that one and let me know your thoughts if anyone is interested.
