Weekend catch up

A quiet weekend, with just three selections, and for the first time since the middle of May not a profitable one with none of them making the frame.

Let's start yesterday where we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.30 Windsor Captain Carey 1pt 10-1 Betfred, VC (BOG), S James, Sky (some 12s Lads BOG)
4.45 Newc Golden Hinde 1pt 10-1 Lads, WHill, (BOG) S James, B Square (some 11s Coral)

In the last few days we've had a pretty high number of horses meet pretty serious trouble in running, and Captain Carey was another. Trapped in on the rail he had absolutely nowhere to go and when he finally got out had no chance with the principles. It happens of course but pretty frustrating! He started at 15/2.

No such excuse with Golden Hinde who ran a shocker, after starting 10/1.

And then today we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.55 Uttoxeter Digital Media 1pt 6/1 Hills/Stan James/Skybet 11/2 VC/PP/Boyle and others

Not a good display from Digital Media (SP 5/1) , who collided with the eventual winner going over the fourth fence which seemed to really put him off his stride and he was immediately struggling. He then unseated his rider three flights later.

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

Saturday 25th June 2011:

Captain Carey, 6th/16, 12/1 --- 15/2
Golden Hinde, 12th/12, 10/1 --- 10/1

Sunday 26th June 2011:

Digital Media, UR/8, 6/1 --- 5/1

It leaves us a shade down for the month with four days for June left (-0.3pts).

We ended May with a flourish and it'd be nice to do something similar now, but we certainly won't go pushing things with that in mind. We'll stay disciplined, focussed and trust things will fall into place. Will it happen before Friday, or after?Either way it really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things!

Hope you have a great week.
