A promising day..

A day which promised a lot and could have been explosive, but despite some decent performances, and some good value had, it didn't happen for us.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.30 Beverley Sea Crest 2pt 14/1 Lads/Coral/Hills/Stan James 12/1 general
2.40 Yarmouth Spiritual Art 1pt 7/1 general BOG
4.20 Haydock Venutius 1pt 8/1 Bet365/Lads/Stan James/Boyles/Betfred
4.40 Yarmouth Master Of Song 1pt 6/1 Lads/Bet365 11/2 Hills 5/1 general
5.10 Yarmouth Fully Armed 2pt 12/1 generally BOG 14/1 Hills

Similarly to yesterday, our first selection of the day raced in pouring rain, and while Sea Crest put in a reasonable display, he just couldn't quicken as well as some of the others and finished sixth, after going off a well supported 15/2.

Spiritual Art was also there or thereabouts, and looked a big player at one stage, but found little, and finished fourth. We got the price again, with Luke Dace's 5yo going off 4/1.

Venutius ran well, touching 1.30 in running, staying on nicely and holding every chance close to home, but went down by less than a length in third after going off at 17/2.

Then came Master Of Song, who unusually for us was also a Hugh Taylor selection. We had spotted positive activity before the ATR man got involved and was a sound choice for us, although it meant the prices we put out were obviously under a lot more pressure, so we'll mark him up as a 5/1 shot. He went off at 4s and ran pretty well, running into third after taking a keen hold early on, not being able to go with the front two.

Fully Armed was disappointing, under pressure some way from home, he faded to finish last, after starting at 12/1.

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

Sea Crest, 6th/13, 14/1 --- 15/2
Spiritual Art, 4th/7, 7/1 --- 4/1
Venutius, 3rd/10, 8/1 --- 17/2
Master Of Song, 3rd/10, 5/1 --- 4/1
Fully Armed, 14th/14, 12/1 --- 12/1

So not a good day for results although we got the prices in the main, and as we always say that's what counts over time.

Roll on tomorrow!
