A fairly quiet morning of market activity and just a couple of selections.
Redcar 3.40 Tasmeem 5/1 Ladbrokes Bet365 Will Hill Coral and other 1pt win
Leicester 4.50 Boy The Bell 12/1 Bet365 1pt win
With a strike rate of around 16% it's inevitable that frustrating runs come along, and today's two defeats continue a poor few days. Of course, at the odds we play, when the winners come things tend to correct themselves pretty readily, so hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later.
Today we saw Tasmeem run quite well, finishing a fast finishing fourth, beaten just over half a length, although we didn't beat SP by half a point.
If we got 12/1 about 7/1 shots the rest of the year things will be looking good and that's what happened with Boy The Bell. Sadly the horse was well off the pace and was well beaten, with Jospeh Young onboard ending up falling off a furlong or two from home when the horse's saddle slipped. Hope he's feeling ok tonight, looked nasty.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Tasmeem, 4th/8, 11//2
Boy The Bell, UR/10, 7/1
