It may not have got the headlines of Frankie on Palace Pier (below) but keen followers of the turf will have wondered that Actuary was beaten into fourth place in a Cork Maiden by Sage Advice.
The favorite, Simply A Breeze tried to make light of heavy conditions but was weighed down by top weight proving that punting rarely is.
Way back in the field were Complete Fiction and Sheer Bravado
Which would have pleased the regulator.
I will certainly be following Sage Advice and won’t be deserting Actuary on this showing. This race should have been sponsored by the Pensions Regulator.
