Punters Furious as Heavy Favorite Loses in Heartbreaking Finish

, Punters Furious as Heavy Favorite Loses in Heartbreaking Finish

Punters are expressing their frustration after a heavily favored horse was beaten in the final moments at Tramore.

Background

Jolie Coeur Allen, trained by Willie Mullins, was the 2-9 favorite in her hurdling debut, following some impressive performances in previous races.

She finished second in a highly competitive race in France on her debut, and last season, on her first race for Mullins, she placed fifth in the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree.

Given her strong form and the weight advantage she had over her competitors, punters were eager to back the four-year-old, who is owned by JP McManus.

A Disappointing Result

As the horses approached the straight, Jolie Coeur Allen appeared to be comfortably leading the pack, but it soon became apparent that she had her quirks.

Wearing a hood, she seemed to be struggling in the final furlong, with jockey Mark Walsh urging her on in an attempt to maintain their lead.

However, their efforts fell short, and Jolie Coeur Allen was overtaken in the dying strides by the more experienced Soldante.

Punters' Outrage

Unsurprisingly, punters were far from pleased with the outcome of the race.

Many voiced their disappointment on social media, criticizing Walsh for what they perceived as a lackluster ride.

One punter called for an investigation into Walsh's ride, stating, "Stewards should question Mark Walsh for his soft ride on Jolie Coeur Allen at Tramore. The hot favorite faltered."

Another punter went as far as to suggest a ban for the jockey of the second-placed horse, claiming that he did not give his all in the race.

Overall, the consensus among punters was that not enough effort was made to secure a victory.
