Massive ante post gamble foiled

30th July 2016

Members were advised to back Growl ante post at odds of 25/1 for the Stewards' Cup weeks before the big race and we continued to top up on the horse at prices down to 14/1 up to the day and had big stakes rolling onto him from only a small outlay - both Fang (6/1) and Take Cover (11/1) had been advised as selections in the first legs of doubles with Growl, too. 

A Growl victory would have been worth between +123.55 pts (worst prices) to +156.60 (best prices) to members, but sadly the horse was beaten into fourth from a bad draw and after meeting lots of trouble in running. 

I'm not talking through my pocket, either, as I took some insurance out against our ante post bets and members backed the winner, Dancing Star, (6/1) and second, Orion's Bow (8/1) both each-way as well. 

All three picks in the 28 runner Stewards' Cup thus made the frame for us and we still made a nice profit in the race. 

We have gone close with two massive doubles this year now (Brando in the Wokingham being the other) and we will continue to chip away until we land one!
