Another selection today:
Epsom 15:20 – Epic
A winner of 3 of his last 4 races and with the services of K Fallon, this Mark Johnston gelding is forecast favourite. There are, however, a few negatives that mean he can be opposed. His wins have all come in class 5 & 6 races and his last 6 attempts at this level have seen him not reach the frame. Only previous outing at Epsom saw him finish 6th (accepted that was his racecourse debut) so suitability of this unique track is unknown. His Official Rating of 80 is now at a career high. Trainer’s strike rate in this age group at the track is low and jockey has never ridden him before. The race looks fairly open.
Well, I have to accept part of the blame by saying that we were on for our tenth winning lay! The selection duly proved me wrong and came in first of the seven runners at a Betfair SP of 5.15 (ISP 7/2).
That gave us a loss for the day of -£166.00 or -4.15 points at level stakes (ouch!). Our cumulative bank has just dropped into the red with a balance of £1,978.00 giving us a loss to date of -£22.00 or -0.55 of a point at level stakes.
Let’s hope for a return to good fortunes tomorrow.
