Things beginning to click now, with another profitable day.
We had five selections in all, four of them at what turned into a very wet Taunton, and most of them ran well.
First up was our only selection of the day at Towcester. We put up King's Realm (1pt) at 8/1 in the opening event, the 12.55.
Going off at 9/1, he ran with a fair bit of credit on his second start over hurdles. Being hampered by a faller four out really didn't help and he stayed on well into a place, finishing third in the end, just missing out on second, although well behind the winner.
Then came Chrysander (1pt) for Evan Williams in the 1.15 at Taunton, at 15/2. A power cut at the track meant the viewing public missed watching this one storm home live, but the replay showed he absolutely hacked up, after going off at 13/2.
Up next was Cullahill (1pt) in the 2.15 at Taunton, at 14/1, who after starting at 12s ran reasonably for a while but was well beaten in the end.
Lorum Leader (1pt) was next in the 3.45 at 7/1. After drifting to 9/1 at SP he ran well for a good part of the race but eventually tired and did well to come third in ground that was turning things into a real slog.
Finally we had Mtpockets (1pt) in the 4.15. After being put up at 9/1, he started at 8/1 and ran well. Always up there, he just looked a tad tapped for toe as the pace quickened, but he was really hitting top gear when he clattered the hurdle two out which put pay to his chances. He stayed on again but couldn't get close to the principles.
So all told 3.5 pts of profit for the day, and we look forward to hopefully keeping things going tomorrow!
