That's more like it!

So our losing run comes to an end! A lovely 10/1 winner at Epsom tonight has hopefully begun the turn around for August in earnest and we can push on from here.

Our only other runner today put in a decent showing too, but it wasn't to be with that one.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.20 Stratford Farleigh House 1pt 5/1 generally 11/2 Totesport/Betfred
6.45 Epsom Weapon Of Choice 1pt 10/1 generally 11/1 Hills 12/1 Totesport/Betfred

Farleigh House ran pretty well, trading at shorter than 6/4 as he closed on the long time leader, after starting at 9/2, but his efforts to close the gap left him short of stamina near the end and he had to settle for third.

Weapon Of Choice was available at 12/1 with Stan James for around an hour after our email was sent out and hopefully plenty of members were able to take advantage. They're on our list of bookies odds we don't count though so we're marking up David Simcock's 3yo as a 10/1 shot for us. We still got the price as he went off at 8/1, and put in a terrific display, always going nicely and then doing well from the front to hold off a strong challenge from the second.

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

Farleigh House, 3rd/7, 11/2 --- 9/2
Weapon Of Choice, 1st/6, 10/1 --- 8/1

So, it's nice to have that winning feeling again, it's been a while. We're on a run of 12 winners from our last 100 selections which is around three wins away from what we'd expect. Hopefully we're due a little correction back upwards to get ourselves back into profit for August. We'll see!

On to tomorrow.
