On the up

Things ticking along nicely at the moment, with another 8pts added to the bank today.

We had a cracking, and very aptly named 10/1 winner, a 16/1 2nd and another backed from 12/1 down to 4/1 who flopped.

These were the selections:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.50 Fontwell Wide Receiver 1pt 10/1 Lads
3.25 Fontwell Murcar 1pt 16/1 Lads
4.00 Fontwell Alldunnandusted 1pt 12/1 Totesport

So on Super Bowl Sunday what a great name for a winner and if either the Packers or Steelers show as much guts as Wide Receiver did today they're going to be hard to beat.

Leading most of the way, the selection was put under considerable pressure with half a mile to run but my word did he battle it out, and eventually actually won going away by three lengths, brilliant stuff. This after going off at 13/2.

Next up was Murcar, who ran really well at a big price, after starting at 14/1. Sadly he just ran into one too good and while he did look like a real threat a couple of fences from home, he just couldn't peg back the ready winner. Good showing though.

And then came Alldunnandusted, the subject of large support, starting at 4/1. Unfortunately this time the money went astray with Seamus Mullins' 7yo faded on the final circuit to be well beaten.

So a good day, although a slight sense of what may have been, but we shouldn't really grumble about today's returns, and we look forward to keeping it going tomorrow.

Confirmation of results with prices (advised --- SP):

Wide Receiver, 1st/9, 10/1 --- 13/2
Murcar, 2nd/11, 16/1 --- 14/1
Alldunnandusted, 5th/6, 12/1 --- 4/1
