Nice to start the month with winner .LITIGANT winning 2 mile conditions race at Lingfield on Saturday for £180.00 profit.Well supported in market going off 2-1 favorite.
In fact was available as big as 4-1 with Betvictor for few minutes on Friday afternoon, though that price quickly disappeared.
Just the two bets on the week the first bet was on Thursday at Meydan in 1 mile group two Zabeel Mile on David Simcock trained TRADE STORM .£50.00 each-way at 4-1 with Bet365 was the bet struck.
Last years winner TRADE STORM looked decent each-way bet here,with the dead eight runners ,though the only problem placing your bet the night before,there is always the chance of non runner.This seems to happen quite often in 8 runner races nowadays .The Mike De Kock trained Anaerobia was taken out in morning ,leaving seven runners .
In the race TRADE STORM as normal was settled at rear ,though in slowly run race Mshawish quickened clear two furlongs out and was never in any real danger .Once in the clear TRADE STORM did finish strongly for second, though had impossible task trying catch Mshawish .In the end it was just small loss on the race -£5.00
The second bet on Saturday in 2 mile conditions race at Lingfield on LITIGANT .The bet was £50.00 each-way at 3-1 with Bet365 on Friday evening .This was well supported in market overnight and in morning being backed into 6-4 ,before drifting before the off .In fact returned 11-4 with Betfair compared with 2-1 SP .
This was another slowly run race. LITIGANT was always travelling well in midfield , only fifth turning into straight,though was still going well under George Baker .Once in clear quickened up nicely to win cosily by half lengh .
LITIGANT looks horse to follow in staying events,that was his fourth win from just six starts and this lightly raced six year old gelding,looks more than capable of picking up listed or group three race this season .
Overall a decent week with £175.00 profit ,after disappointing start in February.The bets have performed well over past two weeks and hopefully March will be good month .
