Cesarewitch smash up!

Cesarewitch smash up!

Well, well, well, what a wonderful weekend that was!

It would be fair to say NMP members have been really unlucky with regards to the fate of our multiple selections this year - with Orion's Bow, Home Of The Brave and Jumira Bridge just some of those who have been narrowly touched off to deny us some big paydays. 

There is only so long bad luck can count against you though and we made up for it in style with Withhold landing a huge ante post gamble in the Cesarewitch last weekend (pictured far left in the blue silks, (c) Ed Whitaker, Racing Post).

Roger Charlton's charge was backed off the boards after first show, with his price collapsing to 5/1 from 9/1, but NMP members were advised to have a decent ante post wager on him at 25/1 after his eyecatching prep run at Newbury weeks before the big race. 

Members had also been advised to back him in a 55/1 double with his stablemate, Blakeney Point, who won at 10/3 (SP) at Leicester in the week leading up to the Cesarewitch as the stable had their horses in superb form at the time.

Members were told Withhold may improve for the step up in trip at Newmarket, as he would likely creep in off a lovely, low racing weight and may have his normal headgear, which had been omitted for his prep run, reapplied at HQ. 

The booking of Silvestre De Sousa at the final declaration stage was the icing on the cake and the horse absolutely bolted up after tacking over from a wide draw and being given a prominent ride, breaking the track record and winning eased down.

As Roger Charlton told ITV Racing after the race, "it was a demolition job, really"!
