A slight change to how we review the action, from now on we'll be listing the bets as we send them out earlier in the day.

This was yesterday, 26th January:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.05 Muss. King Penda 1pt 5/1 Coral (11/2 Stan James)
3.35 Muss. Go Silver Bullet 1pt 15/2 VC

King Penda opened at 4/1 on course before drifting to 11/2 on his chasing debut, and was struggling some way from home and ended up pulled up.

Not much better from Go Silver Bullet, who jumped quite poorly after starting at 11/2, and ended up a well beaten fifth.

Today, January 27th 2011:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.50 Ffos Las Charming Lad 1pt 5/1 Boylesports
2.15 Warwick Playing With Fire 1pt 6/1 Coral/Lads
3.25 Warwick The Gripper 1pt 7/1 Coral/Bet365/Lads

We well and truly had the prices with our first two selections, with clearly lots expected from both. Not to be though on a frustrating day, which ended in sad circumstances.

Charming Lad was 2/1 for a while on track but started at 3s, and although he was there or thereabouts for a while, couldn't go with them when push came to shove and ended fourth.

Playing With Fire started at almost half the odds we had, 7/2, and she ran well, finishing a close up third when holding every chance at the last. This was the race where Tony McCoy performed heroics again, winning on the favourite Folie A Deux, who was matched for more than £100 at 1000 on Betfair in running. All jockeys who give up on their mounts too early - please take note.

Finally The Gripper was was up with them early on, but jumped the fourth fence poorly and very sadly pulled up fatally injured shortly afterwards. Our thoughts to connections.
