The sun was shining bright on Exeter Racecourse yesterday (14 April). That ensured that the going was good to firm for the seven UK horse racing results. First off, the crowd will have been stunned by the heroic victory of 25/1 long-shot Ocean Venture over 4/9 favourite She’s Da One in the 14:00 Novices Hurdle.
That unexpected outcome was followed up with a win for 5/6 favourite Sandynow in the 14:30 Handicap Hurdle. Another horse with relatively short odds triumphed when Thomas Wild took the 15:00 Handicap Chase ahead of 10/3 favourite Adrenalin Flight.
Vodka ‘n Tonic restored order for the favourites with a win at 11/8 in the 15:35 Handicap Hurdle, which was followed by a 5/4 win for favourite Tom Neary in the 16:10 Handicap Chase.
Blinding Lights then won the 16:40 Novices Hunters Chase at astonishingly long odds of 50/1. A favourite completed the wins when Sadler’s Gold won at 8/15 in the 17:10 Maiden Hurdle.
