Can't win 'em all!

Four points dropped since the last update, although we almost had a nice winner last night just beaten into second at 10/1 SP, after trading pretty short in running.

Let's start yesterday, where we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
7.05 Sandown Silverware 1pt 5/1 Hills/Paddy Power/Coral
7.25 Wetherby Rolecarr 1pt 8/1 various 9/1 Hills 10/1 Bet365
8.35 Wetherby Humbie 1pt 9/2 Lads/Hills/BetFred/Paddy Power/Bluesq 5/1Totesport
Silverware started at 4/1, was a bit awkward leaving the stalls, and took a keen hold early on but kept on quite nicely into third, a couple of lengths behind the comfortable winner.

Then came Rolecarr, who ran really well after going of at 10/1. He went into the lead three fences out and jumped the last still in front, but was just collared near the line with Richard Johnson driving the favourite to a narrow victory. Almost another nice winner.

Humbie was a non-runner.

On to today and we had a couple, and after two placed efforts yesterday, neither placed today.

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
5.00 Musselburgh Parc Des Princes 1pt 10/1 generally BOG 11/1 Hills
8.45 Doncaster Illustrious Forest 1pt 9/2 Paddy Power/SkyBet/Totesport 11/2 Coral

Parc Des Princes was well off the pace and while he was staying on in the closing stages was never going to get there, after starting a nicely backed 13/2.

Illustrious Forest was well backed in the morning but drifted during the day to open on course at 10/1. He was then backed into 8/1 at SP, and ran a decent race for a good while, leading and going ok, but then didn't appear to stay the trip and faded into 8th.

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

2nd June 2011

Silverware, 3rd/10, 5/1 --- 4/1
Rolecarr, 2nd/6, 9/1 --- 10/1

3rd June 2011

Parc Des Princes, 7th/10, 10/1 --- 13/2
Illustrious Forest, 8th/10 11/2 --- 8/1

Not a great couple of days but we're sure to have plenty more opportunities to return to winning ways this weekend!
