A busy day today as we look to start the Bank Holiday weekend with a bang.
Plenty of movement about and these make the grade for us:
Beverley 2.25 Shotley Mac 12/1 Will Hill
Newmarket 3.20 Mon Cadeaux 9/1 generally 1pt win
Cartmel 4.20 Front Rank 11/2 Will Hill and others 2pt win
Goodwood 4.50 Alice Alleyne 8/1 Ladbrokes 2pt win
Windsor 5.10 Tecktal 12/1 Totesport 2pt win
Beverley 5.15 Cherri Fosfate 11/2 Bet365, Will Hill and others 2pt win
Wow, what a day. After numerous near misses and frustrating twists and turns, things rebound in a spectacularly successful way with a whopping 45pt profit in a single day. Four wins out of six, at 12/1, 8/1 and two at 5/1 (after non-runners) was just fantastic, and to see three 2pt selections win made things even sweeter.
It all started with Shotley Mac skipping away from the field to score in what appeared a competitive handicap at Beverley. Always there or thereabouts, he showed a terrific turn of foot for Franny Norton to win easily and continue his good relationship with the track.
Mon Cadeaux went off a shade shorter than we backed at, but was never in it in the Hopeful Stakes at Newmarket.
Then came winner number two, Front Rank always going nicely for Emma Sayer, she gave him a cracking ride to score very easily and win the Cartmel Cup for the second year running. This settled at 5/1 after one non runner.
Half an hour later another 16pts were bagged, when Alice Alleyne held on for an inspired Kieran Fallon. She looked to have the race put to bed just under a furlong out but Gouray Girl came really strongly and almost got there but the selection had already done enough. On another day our Alice would have been caught but not today. Really pleased with the SP here as well, 8/1 advised and she went off at half that.
Tecktal ran ok for a while in the first at Windsor, going off at 8/1 with the 12/1 taken this morning, but he faded out of it.
Already the day was in cracking profit, but there was time for another 10pts in the bag, with Cherri Fosfate seemingly relishing the return to 10furlongs. He showed a smart turn of foot going into the last furlong to pull clear from the field and galloped all the way to the line to win comfortably. Unfortunately a R4 meant we only got the 5/1 rather than 11/2 backed at this morning, but still a cracking result.
In times like this it is important to not get too carried away of course. Days like this are unusual, just as the dreadful month of June was unusual. We should probably treat those imposters just the same, as someone once said. But my word this is the sort of imposter we don't mind, a great day indeed.
We only back selections as win singles, and wouldn't advise anything other than that, but we've been told of one email subscriber who's made over £2000 today with a 30p each way heinz on the selections here, very nice!
We've been chipping away for the last few weeks in terms of results, winning a few, losing a few, getting unlucky here and there. In all this time though the vast majority of selections have been going off shorter than advised in the morning, and that - statistically speaking - should eventually pay off. Today it appeared that is what happened. It means 2010 is now up nearly 150pts up, a pleasing total for sure. Hopefully we can add another point or two to the tally before the break in September and October. Then we'll be back firing to crack on again on November 1st. Really hope you can join us for that - don't forget to check the website for details on how - a subscription starts at just £13.33 a month. www.themarketexaminer.co.uk
