It's been quite a busy morning of market activity but just three selections make it.
It's good luck to:
Redcar 3.00 Dazeen 10/1 Skybet, Lads, Coral
Redcar 3.35 Observatory Star 7/1 Coral / Sportingbet DOUBLE STAKER
Bangor 8.50 Santo Thomas 4/1 generally available
With an overall win strike rate of around 16% it is of course statistically quite normal to have the occasional long losing run, and certainly June is proving that way so far. Maybe it's a slight correction to the 60pt+ month of May. Either way, it's important to think of the big picture, and the long term prospects to try to keep short term frustrations at bay. Having said that... another big priced second was not a pleasant sight today, with Dazeen trading at 1.31 in running! I also thought Observatory Star, while fairly soundly beaten, stayed on really nicely at the end having been given far too much to do. Looks on a pretty favourable mark.
Santo Thomas ran poorly tonight with his jumping really not good enough just yet.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Dazeen, 2nd, 10/1
Observatory Star, 5th, 8/1
Santo Thomas, 8th, 9/2
