Hi Paul! 15-17 runners in a MAIDEN means 5 possible bets regardless of a low-priced hot favourite. I figured out the best five for price realising that two might not reach the 25 required. A good bet but Jodies Miss beaten into second.
Goaheadmakemyday was the 36 I took in the morning, as was 40 on Fleckerl. Got lucky later with Fairy Mist doing the biz, returned at 31 but actually peaked at 150. Then Cookie Ring in the 7.10 ran home at 55, but I’d asked for 70 earlier and it was matched before it briefly peaked at 1,000 then got backed down to the returned BSP. After commission, NRs, unmatched and £2 stakes, the return was +£242 and very nice too.
Two jumps meetings today starting with Gowran Park, a right-handed track at +£35 over Chases and +£315 Hdls. Best month is Nov but not too shabby the rest of the season. A maiden hurdle, a h/c hdl and a h/c chs then:
