Yesterday’s draw for the Betfred Select Stakes saw favourite Fear Zafonic receive an disadvantageous draw in Trap 2. Trainer Charlie Lister wasn’t particularly impressed because he wanted Fear Zafonic on the inside of his other runner Bandicoot Tipoki who has ended up in Trap 1.
Mark Pearson, head of media for sponsors Betfred said “We would have been even more afraid of Fear Zafonic if it had been he and not Bandicoot Tipoki who had got trap one,” he said. “Business was pretty quiet last week with punters doubtless waiting to see the draw but it has certainly picked up this afternoon”.
