Well that was a pretty frustrating day! Three selections, decent prices, all finishing second, a length the furthest any of them beaten.
2.20 San Orders From Rome 1pt 7-1 general BOG (some 8s at W Hill)
3.15 York Hawk Mountain 1pt 6-1 W Hill, Lads, VC BOG (7s Betfred)
4.25 York Magical Macey 2pt 16-1 Lads 14-1 P Power (BOG) 14s Tote, B Square
Orders From Rome should have won. Starting at 9/1 he was boxed in on the rail for Tom Queally, and, full of running, he was checked a couple of times as he tried to get into the clear. When he did he flew home to go down go down by 3/4 length to the well backed favourite.
Hawk Mountain was another who absolutely stormed home, staying on really well after being held up well off the pace. He went off at 6/1, and lost by a neck.
Then came Magical Macey, who put in a cracking performance over the minimum trip at York, and with just under a furlong to go it looked like he could go on and win but he just tied up for a moment before running again near the end. He went down by a length, finishing just ahead of third, after starting at 16/1. Close to a big return.
Confirmation of results with prices (advised --- SP):
Orders From Rome, 2nd/10, 7/1 --- 9/1
Hawk Mountain, 2nd/16, 6/1 --- 6/1
Magical Macey, 2nd/16, 14/1 --- 16/1
We've had eight second placed finishes from our 25 picks this month, 32%, which is obviously well above what we'd expect. These sort of things usually even themselves out before too long so we look forward to things clicking into place again soon.
