Master stamina pays off
Racing Post - 2009-06-17
Mastercraftsman’s stamina shone through in the St James’s Palace Stakes, getting the better of the strong-travelling Delegator, who was matched at an in-running low of 1.32 on Betfair.
Johnny Murtagh was definitely headed on the Irish Guineas winner, but the fact he did not trade any bigger than 5.7 at any stage inside the final furlong shows how confident some Betfair punters were about him getting back up.
The winner cost WBX a few quid, as they had a promotion offering £10 in free bets to their customers if Aidan O’Brien’s horse won – he did – and the firm go again today with the same offer about Tartan Bearer doing the business.
