Meeting Results Summary
Platinum Profit:Betfair SP: +$70.00
Basic Premium Profit:Corp SP: +$55.00 Betfair SP: +$35.00
We end the day just over break-even with a much needed unit in the pocket for Basic and just under 1 unit for Platinum members as we take home only a short priced winner off our two small bets.
Starting with R2 we managed to maintain a strong price on #5 Naval Warfare at $7.50/$8.03 resulting in nothing of note as #4 King of Leogrance leads a massive late dash to come in from 5th and nab the win.
Our pace across the track was excellent as we maintained 3rd at both the 800m and 400m mark, but it was obvious that we simply didn’t have the staying power needed as the 2600m ended up being a massive challenge in stamina.
Prices for both of the favourites ended up jumping at the same time, whilst we still stick firmly saying that we would’ve put #1 Dabiyr closer to the $4.50 mark having had a chance to look through the full performance.
In terms of performance, there’s not a lot to be said here – we maintained a strong position across the track but were unable to press the issue in the final 400m with the unexpected burst from #4 King Of Leogrance certainly well played given the 5 year olds lackluster run across most of the field.
We were able to claw back a profit for the day moving into R4 with #2 Sylvia’s Mother managing to come out *very* late to nab the win by 0.40L against a strong performance in #5 Mamzelle Tess and #6 Fidelia.
As we mentioned in the preview, #6 Fidelia was a bit of a wildcard with the price not anywhere near where we needed it to be – especially given the very so-so run across most of the track sitting all the way back at 9th and 10th.
In terms of the run from #2 Sylvia’s Mother it looked like we were in for another licking as we get trapped up the inside of the rail with traffic stopping us from doing too much.
An excellent strategy from Dunn saves the day as he pushes to the outside with #2 Sylvia’s Mother very literally nearly taking a bite out of #4 Parmie as the mare shows her her strength at the 310m mark.
Traffic came for those racing alongside #5 Mamzelle Tess with #9 Cazabillie pushed all the way back to 8th being unable to get out from the barrier and being rightly pulled back by Jamie Kah.
Although we got the win this time around, it was another short priced favourite that barely made it in and who could have easily been trapped behind the leaders so we’re not exactly over the moon about it.
For a $2.40 shot the value certainly didn’t feel like it was there, and the same race a couple of times around would have #5 Mamzelle Tess coming out on top more often than not in our books.
With that being said, we’ll obviously take the profit but once again we wanted to highlight why we feel that the short prices are almost never really worth it once you reflect on the actual performance and how many things have to line up for them to perform to their price.
A quick apologies for the results coming out so late – as can sometime happen with anything technical it took us a bit longer than expected to get the needed updates through.
We will have all three meetings updated right now so please contact us if you did not receive the update (or can’t see it in your Members Section) as we hope that we’ve managed to iron out all of the bugs.
