Double Dutch, 17th June 2014

It was a familiar tale yesterday, as we yet again 1-2'd, with a winner in the first and a runner up - beaten half a length - in the second. Onwards, for our chance is surely near at hand...

Monday's results were as follows:

Able Deputy: won at 11/8 (adv 6/4
The Nephew: 4th at 5/1 (adv 13/2)
Giantstepsahead: 2nd at 7/4 (adv 6/4)
Teide Peak: 7th at 4/1 (adv 7/1)

Results to date:
256 winning selections from 931 = 27.5%

Stakes: 484.00pts
Returns: 505.63pts

P/L : +21.63pts (+4.47% ROI)


2.30 Royal Ascot:

I've previewed this race elsewhere, and I think it looks set fair for Toronado to show what a good horse he is. The more I've read this morning, the stronger the vibes I've felt for the new Ballydoyler, Verrazano, however, and he looks the main danger if he's as good as connections think he is. Certainly, he's entitled to come on plenty for that first run of the season when his stable was perhaps struggling a little. 10/11 Toronado and 9/2 Verrazano.


4.25 Royal Ascot:

Again, this was previewed here, and I consider it little more than a match, with a real chance that Night Of Thunder can come out on top as he did when beating Kingman in the 2000 Guineas.

    Great job, Matt. Shame the SotD couldn’t oblige for the treble, but a nice payday nonetheless.

    It’s uncanny how often you and Chris seem to land big winners immediately after swapping chairs. I’m quite sure it’s nothing more than coincidence, and only a brave/drunk idiot would start saying, “Oh, they’ve swapped seats again, let’s double the stakes!”, but it’s given me many a wry smile over the last year or so.

    Keep up the good work. (Both of you!) 🙂
