ouch - that's gotta hurt!
No dodgy betting plunges here, but how on earth anyone could tip this as a winner other than using the theory of complete randomness in juvenile hurdles is beyond me. Usually horses matched at 1000 that win get matched for pennies in-running, this was a Betfair SP of 1000 (vs bookies SP of 200/1). Trained by Jennie Candlish, ridden by A O'Keefe. Sorry, never heard of either of them... until now.
Bolted in by nine lengths as well. Cue Betfair sending out a press release to boast about 400% better odds on a horse which probably five people backed in the entire country......
