Profits continue

Another good day today, with one winner from our two selections, a really gutsy success at Musselburgh. We advised Rossini's Dancer at a best priced 10/1, but that price went quickly after our email sent out, so we will chalk him up as a 8.1/1 winner (after rule 4 applied - details below).

Yesterday we were 0/1.

Let's start there, we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.30 Folkestone Vacario 1pt 8/1 Coral/Bet365/VC/Betfred

A pretty competitive handicap with plenty of runners. Vacario was well supported though, and went off at 6/1. Unfortunately he didn't jump particularly fluently and was shaken along relatively early. He ended up finishing a well beaten 5th.

Then today we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.20 Musselburgh Kai Broon 1pt 6/1 general
4.20 Musseburgh Rossini's Dancer 1pt 10-1 W Hill, 9s P Power, VC Bet

Kai Broon was further supported into 4/1 so there was clearly plenty expected from this 4yo, but he really didn't do anything and was tailed off.

Then came Rossini's Dancer, who put in a cracking performance to win close home. We selected him against our easy winner on Saturday, Locked Inthepocket, who this time was an odds-on shot. No room for sentiment in this game! Locked Inthepocket was leading and seemingly going ok when he fell five out, although that was still some way from home. At that point, Rossini's Dancer was looking pretty laboured, trading as high as 130 in running, but Mark Bradburne didn't give up, and suddenly found him back on the bridle and close in contention. He took the lead about two out, still going nicely and was looking like the likelier winner, until he clattered the last fence. At that stage he was looking up against it, with Quinder Spring having a half length lead with 100yds or so left to race, but one late surge forced our pick to the line to win in the nick of time. A great result. Unfortunately there was a R4 10p in the £ deduction, so the actual return was 8.1/1, still can't really complain.

It leaves February 22.6pts in profit, with a ROI of +70.62%. We're 19.6pts up for 2011 (+18.15% ROI). Things going along quite nicely, so let's hope it continues!
