Low key couple of days

Not a great deal to report from the last couple of days, with four selections running, but sadly no winner.

Let's start yesterday where we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.00 Perth Agricultural 1pt 9/1 Coral/Totesport/Bluesq/SportingBet 8/1 others
4.45 Worcester Award Winner 1pt 11/2 Hills/Boylesports/Betfred/Coral 6/1 Totesport

We got a touch of value with Agricultural, with the selection going off at 8/1, and actually I think he didn't run too badly, showing some promise for a good while but just unable to jump his hurdles fluently enough to get genuinely competitive when push came to shove. Still when all's said and done he was well beaten.

Award Winner was a general 7/2 when he was declared a non-runner, perhaps one for the notebook.

Today we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.45 Newton Abbot Aconitum 1pt 8/1 Lads/Hills/Betfred 15/2 - 7/1 generally
7.00 Pontefract Hollins 1pt 5/1 generally 11/2 Boylesports 6/1 Lads
8.15 Windsor Snow Magic 1pt 7/1 Hills/Coral/ VC/Stan James/Betfred
8.30 Pontefract Elhamri 1pt 11/1 Totesport/Boylesports/Stan James 10/1 Lads/Bet365

Aconitum didn't do anything, finishing tailed off although he was supported on course after opening at 9/1 and going off at 17/2.

Hollins ran well, and the 6/1 with Ladbrokes held up for a good length of time so we got some decent value with the selection starting at 4/1. He stayed on well into second but couldn't catch the winner.

Snow Magic continued our recent run of non runners, so it was all eyes on Alhamri last up who started at 9/1 to see if the day would be profitable. Not to be though, the selection hung left a little for the first half of the race and then just faded disappointingly out of contention.

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

Sunday 6th June 2011:

Agricultural, 6th/9, 9/1 --- 8/1
Award Winner NR

Monday 7th June 2011:

Aconitum, 5th/7, 8/1 --- 15/2
Hollins, 2nd/8, 6/1 --- 4/1
Snow Magic NR
Elhamri, 8th/10, 11/1 --- 9/1

So not a great day in terms of results but beating SP with every selection which ran is some consolation.

On to tomorrow!
