Surging forward

Another profitable day today, with the month now showing 18.5pt profit (66.67% ROI).

It feels like we're beginning to have the correction which is due after a poor November and December, and indifferent January, as always happens sooner or later (in our experience).

Today we picked up 6.5pts from our three selections, thanks to a really easy winner, but it could easily have been a lot more had our first pick not put in a really awful jump three out to knock the stuffing out of him while tanking along and trading at 1.37 in running..!

Anyway these were our three:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.30 Hereford Quicolai 1pt 9/1 Boylesports/Bluesq (10/1 Stan James)
4.30 Hereford Goodtimetoby 1pt 11/2 Bet365/VC (6/1 Stan James)
5.00 Hereford Decent Lord 1pt 8/1 VC/Paddy Power

Quicolai was extremely well backed for Paddy Brennan, going off at 4/1 and it did look like the money was going to be landed, in the lead and travelling really well. But he made a really awful mistake which he did really well not to fall from three fences out, and just lost his action thereafter. Tom George pulled him up before the last. It was a weak race, but he's perhaps a winner in waiting.

Goodtimetoby didn't do much at all after starting at 4/1, so it was left to Decent Lord in the last, who drifted to 10/1 on course before being backed again into 17/2, and then absolutely hosed up to record his first ever success. Always travelling strongly he eased into a big lead with a couple of fences to go and it was just a matter of getting over his hurdles, which he did nicely. The b.o.g gave us an extra half a point which was a nice bonus!

Confirmation of results with prices (advised ---- sp)

Quicolai, PU/7, 9/1 --- 4/1
Goodtimetoby, PU/6, 11/2 --- 4/1
Decent Lord, 1st/10, 8/1 --- 17/2
