Daily Dabble, 24th June 2013
We ended the week with a good result, as both Art History and Huffoof made the frame in back to back races at Pontefract.
Art History stayed on well in the closing stages to take third place almost in the shadow of the winning post at decent odds of 7/1, a full point longer than we'd expected/advised, which gave us a fighting shot of a place double in the 4.40 race.
We'd selected Huffoof at 9/1. the fifth favourite in a 6-runner race, but she managed to dictate the bulk of the race, as we'd hoped and she duly came home a 15/2 winner. This meant that we at least landed the place double at 6.8/1. Not quite the main (79/1) prize, but a welcome return to the winners' enclosure nonetheless.
I'll follow up yesterday's pair of successful runners with two fillies today, starting with the...
Although Pandorica has managed to find just one horse better than her in each of her last three outings, she's certainly in good form and showing decent levels of consistency. And despite her last victory coming almost ten months ago, that win was over today's course and distance and her record at Chepstow reads 1242 and all of her three career victories to date have been over today's ten furlong trip. She's been knocking on the door of late, but either way, her current odds of up to 9/1 make her an attractive E/W proposition, hopefully giving us a crack at the...
Dangerous Age is an interesting runner this afternoon as she returns to A/W action after a couple of indifferent efforts on turf. Her form in her first four outings (all on A/W surfaces) read 3113 including a course and distance win here at Wolverhampton back in February. I wouldn't at all be surprised if she put those two poor turf runs behind her today and if she shows any kind of return to her previous A/W form, then there's every possibility of at least a place and at odds of up to 15/2 available, there looks to be some value knocking about this morning.
The double pays almost 80/1 BOG today with BetVictor, with the place element running at over 11/2 (5.75/1 to be precise)
