I rejigged the prices after Bowleaze’s defection, making Appleaday 2/1 and Super Keano 3/1. The McCoy factor ensured Super was short-priced and I took 4s about Appleaday  – just missed 9/2 but beat 3s SP.  Nice – the superior speed figures showed their worth as he took the lead halfway and held off Super, Golden Child and Nell – a class performance, in fact.

Super Keano jumped clumsily and eventually dumped the hapless McCoy.  Some money for both Golden Child and Mistress Nell which showed in their good runs but I would say this race was just out of their class by a grade.
