Poor couple of days

It's been a below-par couple of days, there's no getting away from it. It happens though and things will pick up soon I'm sure!

Yesterday we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.30 Hereford Rathconrath 1pt 10-1 Boyle, Betfred, 9-1 B365
5.00 Ripon Boy The Bell 1pt 9-1 W Hill, Boyle

Rathconrath drifted to 14s at the off, not the idea, and then ran poorly, ending pulled up.

Boy The Bell was very nicely backed into 11/2 at SP which is more like it, and then ran well. He was a tad outpaced early on but really got motoring into the final furlong to finish a fast finishing fourth. Just got going a tad too late.

Then on to today:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.30 Font Home 1pt 8-1 W Hill, VCBet
5.35 Font The Red Laird 1pt 11-2 W Hill, B Square, 5s other BOG firms
6.25 Newc Funky Munky 1pt 9-1 W HIll

When Home quickened clear three out it looked like he had a decent chance, but he couldn't keep it going and ended up getting hauled in to finish out of the frame in the end in fourth, after starting at 15/2.

The Red Laird was a non-runner.

Funky Munky was most disappointing, being shoved along all too early and ending up very well beaten, after starting at 12/1

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

Thursday April 7th

Rathconrath, PU/17, 10/1 --- 14/1
Boy The Bell, 4th/12, 9/1 --- 11/2

Friday April 8th

Home, 4th/11, 8/1 --- 15/2
The Red Laird NR
Funky Munky, 11th/13 9/1 --- 12/1

So it's National day tomorrow - has the makings of a classic this year, hope it's a profitable one for you!
