Brilliant Balding does it again

30th September 2017

Andrew Balding did us a good turn last week when his Brorocco kept on stylishly down the outside of the field under David Probert, landing a big Saturday handicap at Newbury. He went on record at 9/1, though some members obtained marginally larger prices in the morning.

Balding came up trumps the following weekend when Donjuan Triumphant got up in a photo finish to win the rearranged Gold Cup for us at Haydock. 

The prestigious 6f sprint was originally scheduled to take place at Ayr the previous week and we had backed him as a strong ante post selection at prices up to 16/1. Those bets were voided when the entire Western meeting was abandoned due to a waterlogged track, though we kept the faith, reinvested some of the returned stake and the former Richard Fahey representative dug in well under PJ McDonald to get up in the final strides for a 10/1 winner!
