2011 hits a new high

One winner from our three selections today, with Miss Diagnosis winning in good style at Newbury tonight for us. It means 2011 hits a new high, of +208.3pts.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.30 Brighton Triggerlo 1pt 11/2 Hills/Bet365/Skybet 6/1 Coral/Stan James
6.40 Newbury Baltic Flyer 1pt 11/2 Stan James 6/1 Hills/Bet365
8.20 Newbury Miss Diagnosis 1pt 17/2 VC/Paddy Power 8/1 Bet365/ Skybet / Betfred 9/1 Lads

Triggerlo started at 7/1 and was cantering along very nicely before he was barged into the rail by Hayley Turner's eventual winner Marygold. He literally bounced back from the rail and was never travelling afterwards. Turner picked up a three day ban for careless riding but kept the race. Obviously we'll never know if ours would have gone on to win but it certainly was a frustrating start to the day.

Baltic Flyer was another who met trouble in running, checked at a crucial stage when beginning to make progress, after starting at 8/1.

So then we waited to see if Miss Diagnosis would at least be granted a free passage, and so she was. Given a lovely ride by Jim Crowley, she was waited with for what seemed like an age before being asked to go on and win the race, and she quickened clear to win by more than a length. The 10/1 SP gave us an extra point of profit thanks to Ladbrokes' BOG.

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

Triggerlo, 4th/6, 11/2 --- 7/1
Baltic Flyer, 6th/14, 6/1 --- 8/1
Miss Diagnosis, 1st/10, 9/1 --- 10/1

Despite the good end result today in terms of profit, we didn't have a good day for value, with all three selections drifting from our morning prices which does put a bit of a dampner on things. But overall this month we've had good value in the majority of our selections without really getting our rewards so maybe it was just time for the pendulum to swing our way.

It's been a good last ten days or so, which leaves June nicely in profit. We'll be doing our level best to keep pushing things forward.
