Affleck Lady led but was done for middle pace by Garryglass Champ then when she closed on him round the last two bends she went for the brave route up the rails and was checked so she switched outside but failed by a head to land us the lolly.
Same result in a different way when our second selection Paradise Valdez led and went six clear after first bend trouble, he looked home and hosed until Ruby’s Rascal conjured a power packed finish to nail him by a neck at the line!
Two seconds then both beaten by Mark Wallis dogs, Mark had two more winners and had the Trainers Championship won with a race to go.
Hoping we can recover most of last night’s losses with our ante post investment on Brinkleys Poet in the Gimcrack Final this afternoon.
He’s been awesome in the heats and semi and a similar performance can surely land us the money.
There is nothing on the rest of the card I like for a bet. So I won’t bet. Just cheer on Poet.
No Bets Today.
