Canni Not Run Faster
So yesterday it was Sir Edwin no Speed and today it’s Canni Not Run Faster. Again not exactly a day to get overly excited about, however we were a stride or two away from netting Pegasus Again for 7/2 which would have at least put a shine on things. As it is an overly disappointing day .. Pentominium did hang on to win and was heavily backed into 2/9 so getting 5/6 as I thought would be a good price, alas with the non runners it only paid back a 4/7 shot, still that’s better than 2/9 and it’s better than losing. The treble once again was deeply disappointing and I’m in two minds whether to continue with these bets. Canni Thinkaar’s drift to 15/8 also before the off worries me somewhat regards backing Betfair prices early doors. I guess on the plus side I got decent prices for Pentominium and Pegasus Again.
Therefore to sum up 5PTS staked – 3PTS lost on Canni Thinkaar, Pegasus Again and the treble, however Pentominium returned the 2PTS staked and another 1.2PTS so overall a loss of 1.8PTS. Taking the overall running total to -3.8PTS not great 😦
On to more positive news the ante post bets, Workforce is still trading around 30 on Betfair so no news is I guess good news. I won’t give up on that though unless it comes through that the horse will definitely not run at Epsom. Madison du Berlais has been shortened further, somewhat galling that it was 25s earlier in the week or last week still it looks likely to run and the 12.5 price which I’ve got looks reasonably good at present. The bigger mover though as predicted was Summit Meeting following Pricewise’s ante post tip for the Neptune Investment, this is now trading at 25 on Betfair and will return a profit if laid off. The market is currently suspended so I’ll take a look again later this week, it’s more likely I’ll lay a bit off and then take a closer look at the race near the time as there’s plenty in it with chances.
On to today’s bets and a grand day’s racing it is. I’ve taken prices on some of these. Will edit when I’ve placed the bet either on Betfair or B365 on Hidden Keel, not overly excited by it’s current 9/4 price on Betfair.
- 1PT WIN – 2.00 Hidden Keel –
- 1PT WIN – 2.10 Bishopsbriggs – 7/2
- 1PT WIN – 2.45 Fong’s Alibi –9/4
- 1PT WIN – 3.30 Marodima – 15/2
- 1PT WIN – 3.40 Trabolgan – 9/4 (Bet365)
Also may yet have a little Lucky 15 involving these shorter price ones – more to see if there’s any hope of landing a nice sum with short price horses or not. Again not placed this yet and may not.
- 1PT LUCKY 15 – 1.40 Noble Greek, 1.50 Great Reason, 3.20 Whippers Love, 3.55 Handsome Cross
