Because of the break in September and October it feels like it's been a while since a month was sitting in good profit, and December continues to stutter along with another three losers. It's all about the long term of course, but it would be nice to have a good day or two soon - preferably before the freezing weather descends again!
Anyway we had three today, a couple at Folkestone and another at Catterick.
First up was Shewarni Wolf (1pt) in the 1.35 at Folkestone. Advised at 5/1, he opened at 3/1 before going off at 4s for Nigel Twiston-Davies. He was there or thereabouts for a good part of the race but just tired near the end of this first attempt at a longer trip.
Half an hour later we had Bold Pioneer (1pt) at 8/1 in the 2.05 at Folkestone. Going off at 13/2, he ran really well for a long time, going nicely while others seemingly were toiling, and he traded at around 6/4 in running. But a furlong or two from home he just really started to struggle and in the end came sixth of six, a frustrating race to watch.
Last up we had Best Horse (1pt) in the 2.45 at Catterick, at 11/2. This one drifted before the off, starting at 8/1, but put in a decent performance, still holding every chance coming to the last, but just couldn't find anything close to home.
Confirmation of results with sps:
Shewarni Wolf, 6th/16, 4/1
Bold Pioneer, 6th/6, 13/2
Best Horse, 5th/12, 8/1
