I'm with Corals - as I often am - my prices reflecting their own. Probably because I agree with their senior odds compiler who was adamant that Elusive Kate won the Falmouth on merit. Also fairly sure Integral is going to be a top class horse - Stoute matures these Cheveley Park fillies like fine wines, and this one is still green - so on the downside it may take till next year. 6pts win Integral at 7/1 and 4pts Elusive Kate at 11/4
Everything suited Sky Lantern in the end - plenty of pace on course and going she loves. Very decent. Still like Integral for next year.
One of my favourite - ie luckiest - dart-throwing races, and frankjly that's all anyone's doing today - 14/1 the field!
Have to keep Murtagh onside and Prince of Johanne (backed him at 40s previously when he won this). Will add the Gosden three year old and the Ellison improver lurking at the bottom of the weights. In no rush. 3pts each or something...
Johnny Murtagh. Such a shame this horse didn't win when we needed the double! Still, nice day. Backed Majestic Moon later at 6s - backed to 7/2 - which was playing looser than I had intended.

Hope someone out there took my pre-season advice to back Fulham for relegation at 8s. We've stayed up for a decade by consistently beating the lesser teams at home. Today is a big loss. Press the manager panic button and we could be in utter turmoil.
