Just one winner at Perth yesterday for the blog with Lord Of Drums (P Buchanan, 7/2) and a place with Quacity (P Buchanan, 25/1) but this pretty much pales into insignificance with the news of Brian Toomey’s head injury after a fall at the same meeting. Hope and praying you pull through Brian!
An Inspector should certainly have been called to Wexford yesterday afternoon to investigate the shenanigans at the last fence when Another Charm (matched at 999/1 for £13 on the exchanges) won an incident packed race. Some Drama with the race at its mercy fell, bringing down close pursuer Turica. As those two sprung up dazed Dominetta Vitali jumped right into one of them bring it to a virtual standstill. Another Charm who was simply going to be a distant fourth at one stage then glided through for an unlikely victory. Who am I to complain when my 8/1 came in hey? All the horses and jocks returned unhurt I hasten to say.
Mark Me Up (N P Madden, 4/1) was another winner later in the afternoon at Wexford for this blog.
