Four timer foiled!

It's been a bit of a slow start for August, three selections going down yesterday (one second), and then today we had the unusual prospect of no selections at all.

So a quick look at yesterday then and we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.15 Ripon Oneofapear 1pt 9/2+generally inc. 5/1 Lads/PaddyPower/Boylesports/StanJames
4.15 Ripon Crimson Knot 1pt 5/1 generally and 11/2 Coral/Totesport/Betfred
5.30 Newton Abbot Amuse Me 1pt 9/1+generally inc some 10/1 Totesport/Betfred/SportingBet

We got the price with all of these, although only marginally in the case of Oneofapear who went off at 9/2. It was a disappointing effort in our attempt to get four winners in a row and the selection was well beaten.

A much better effort by Crimson Knot, who met a little bit of trouble in running as he ran on near the finish, going down a diminishing length in the end, after starting at 7/2.

And then we had Amuse Me, who was well backed to show an improvement over the fences for Jonjo and AP. Not so though, he jumped the first pretty poorly and was always struggling, after going off at 5/1.

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

Monday 1st August 2011:

Oneofapear, 5th/6, 5/1 --- 9/2
Crimson Knot, 2nd/6, 5/1 --- 7/2
Amuse Me, PU/9, 9/1 --- 5/1

And then today we had no selections, which is always a bit annoying but we'll never reach for picks for the sake of it. So on to tomorrow!
