Sunday night update

A fairly quiet last three days of action, but a profit to report, with Waahej doing the business at Windsor yesterday afternoon in good style.

We had the one selection on Friday, at a big price:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
5.25 Ffos Las Cold Mountain 2pt 20/1 gen+ inc. 25/1 Lads/Coral/SportingBet

The 25/1 held up for quite a while, and obviously it would have been a cracking return. Seamus Mullins' 9yo was a bit outpaced and he looked unlikely to win from a fair way out, but it was good to see Jimmy Derham keeping him going all the way to the line, almost snatching third. He started at 16/1.

On Saturday we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.35 Beverley Mr Rainbow 1pt 7/1+generally inc. 8/1 Lads/Hills/SportingBet
5.05 Windsor Waahej 1pt 5/1+generally inc. 11/2Skybet/StanJames/SportingBet 6/1 Lads

Mr Rainbow almost gave us a terrific start to the day, staying on in the rain all the way to the line, with the post coming just a few yards too soon, after he started at 8/1.

Waahej was a good winner for us, although we were hit by an annoying 10p R4. Still, a winners a winner and he could be called that some way from home, good value for his 3/4 length victory.

Today we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.55 Goodwood Xclaim 1pt 5/1 Lads/Bet365/SportingBet/VC/Bluesq

Xclaim was nicely backed this morning but a bit weak later on, drifiting to 13/2 on his handicap debut. He was outpaced early on and did his best to get involved but it all happened a bit quickly. In the end he wasn't beaten far though, and could be one to keep an eye on.

Confirmation of results with prices (advised and SP):

Friday 26th August 2011:

Cold Mountain, 4th/8, 25/1 --- 16/1

Saturday 27th August 2011:

Mr Rainbow, 2nd/13, 8/1 --- 8/1
Waahej, 1st/6, 5.4/1(after r4) --- 11/4

Sunday 28th August 2011:

Xclaim, 6th/8, 5/1 --- 13/2

So we're left to reflect a little on what may have been had Mr Rainbow got up, but at least a profit locked in this weekend. Roll on what could be a busy day tomorrow!
