It was that time of the year once again.
One of the few times of the year when, suddenly, everyone fancies having a bet and everyone becomes an ‘expert’ on Horse Racing for the one race of the year that is actually the hardest to spot any value in!
It is also ironic that all the people I know who usually frown upon gambling suddenly feel it is ok to have a bet on this particular race!
All in good fun anyway and the eventual winner was Auroras Encore @ SP on Betfair of 127.
In running it was actually matched as high as 400 for £2. Wish I was that punter!
Teaforthree came pretty close and led till the final jump. That horse was one of the front favourites and traded as low as 1.40 in-running from an SP of 12.2.
