Star Sports spokesman Jamie Loughead said: “We took a terrible beating on the first day, we laid one long-standing client £220,000 on Douvan and we lost in excess of £250,000 on others in the Mullins treble. But we came back today keen to take on the favourites and we’ve been very fortunate.
Yorkhill’s win in the first race was painful for us, after we laid a number of five-figure bets at 3-1. But since then we’ve had a run of fantastic results- the best being Sprinter Sacre turning over Un De Sceaux. We laid one punter Un De Sceaux £135,000 at 8-11 moments before the off, which certainly confirms our owner Ben Keith’s status as a genuine layer.
Unlike the big high street firms we don’t have to worry about our shareholders and avoid big wagers, our owner Ben Keith thrives on the pressure of going toe-to-toe with the big players and leading the betting ring. Two days in to Cheltenham we’re still solid six figures behind- but we’ve got two more days to go and we’ve got momentum now. Game on.
any clues for the concluding bumper?i just hope,westend story turns around richard johnsons fortunes..was really impressive last time out,even if this is much harder..stefanat 5:12 PM
Alex - the man the bookies fear (because it really is a pain to work out returns on an each way lucky 31)Ubak's third place means I get a good return on my £2 each way bet having taken the 33/1 early price. But today's Lucky 15 (each way, of course) is doing less well. Vigil and Kasakh Noir both finished sixth and so far only Long House Hall has come in, meaning a return of less than a pound to a £6 stake. All eyes on New To This Town in the lucky last.Yesterday was a pretty good one all round. My £6.20 each way lucky 31 returned a great £27.70 thanks to four of the five horses being placed. Add in another each way return on the Young Master and it was a profit of three times stakes.
Today has been pretty good too. Sprinter Sacre was immense and fully justified my £2 win at 5/1. More Of That was a disappointment, losing me £2 and also seeing my double with the Queen Mum winner fall.
But as we approach the half way point I am still comfortably ahead of Mr Ladbroke.
