Waiting for rewards

Well, our selections are running pretty well in general this month, with a 45% placed strike rate, but things aren't quite falling for us just yet in terms of those winners.

Today we had a couple run for us, with one finishing a not-beaten-far third:

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.25 Nott Seattle Drive 1pt 15-2 W Hill(BOG), Tote,S James, (some 8s B365)
4.15 Newb Orthodox Lad 1pt 6-1 B365,Lads,Boyle,Betfred(BOG)
5.10 Nott Glyn Ceiriog 1pt 6-1 Lads(BOG) B Square,11-2B365, Tote

Seattle Drive was slowly away, after going off at 7/1, and ran a bit keen too. For a moment or two it looked like he was moving into contention but he didn't appear to stay, weakening out of things in the final furlong.

Orthodox Lad (7/1 SP) ran well. He blew the start which was possibly costly and meant he had to be bustled up into the pack early on, and actually got a reminder or two halfway through the race. He then got stuck looking for racing room when he was trying to quicken and got into the clear a tad too late, as the winner(s) had flown. In fairness ours wasn't the only one who met some trouble in running, but this was possibly one which got away.

Glyn Ceiriog unfortunately was a non runner.

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

Seattle Drive, 5th/8, 15/2 --- 7/1
Orthodox Lad, 3rd/13, 6/1 --- 7/1
Glyn Ceiriog NR

The first day for ages where we haven't on average beaten SP with our selections which is a bit disappointing but things have gone well in that regard this month in the main and we should get our rewards again soon.
