Long wait

Well we had to wait all day for our one selection selection to run, in the very last race of the night at Windsor, and after all that build up it was perhaps no surprise it proved to be something of an anticlimax - although in fairness we got a good performance, and also got the price.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
9.10 Windsor Devoted 1pt 9-2 general BOG, 5s Coral

Very well backed into 11/4 at the off, Ralph Beckett's 3yo was always in touch and when asked for an effort moved strongly into connection on the far rail. But unfortunately it was Achalas who stayed home the stronger, and our pick went down by just over two lengths, readily holding on for second.

Summary of result with prices (advised --- SP):

Devoted, 2nd/9, 9/2 --- 11/4

So we have our 11th second placed finish for the month (22.45% of all selections finishing in that place), which is pretty annoying but it's nicer to see them finishing there rather than tailed off last.

Our first selection tomorrow will be our 400th pick of 2011. At the moment we're standing at 200.3pts of profit (+45.01%roi) , so let's hope we can celebrate that minor milestone with a nice winner to keep us nicely above the 200pt mark!
