Well after another great week last week on the back bets and we kick off this week with another winner in Speed Steed at Towcester, although not a big price at 7/4 he was our only back bet of the day and a maximum bet at that. He had the course form and looked the obvious choice for the race against a weak favourite in Countess Comet, who had won her last two novice hurdles but on far flatter tracks which suited her flat breeding. Towcester is a whole different ball game and the stiffest test in the country. Our selection never looked in doubt – unlike Countess Comet who struggled as expected.
So some decent profit in the bank to start the week and looking forward to the Lincoln at Doncaster this weekend and then on to Aintree.
