That and the fact that the filly had won a higher class of race over the same distance, 6 furlongs, last October. Body and Soul is also one of those rare horses punters should look out for. Namely one that is adaptable when it comes to conditions underfoot.
She had won on firm and soft ground and was racing from the same handicap mark as when victorious in a Listed race at Redcar last autumn. The early price was 14-1 and these were the odds available with a couple of bookies when members of the selections service were advised that Body and Soul was my each way nap bet of the day.
I was pleased to see her delivered late and win the class 2 Sprint Trophy by a neck. The SP price was only 7-1.
So ensuring that members taking the early bird price were quids in.
As was I.
The week prior had been a tough one for all punters. The bookies had a good few days and some punters were beginning to despair. But I have learned over the many years of profitable punting that there is one good thing about a bad run.
It is always followed by a good one.
