2pter missing the target

We've not had a 2pt selection win for quite a while, although overall we're well up in terms of our staking for the year. It'll come along sooner or later.

Today we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
12.55 Hereford Acapulco Bay 2pt 10/1+generally inc. 12/1 Coral/Totesport/Betfred/Paddy Power 14/1 Lads/SportingBet maybe some 16/1 Stan James
2.20 Market Rasen Le Burf 1pt 4/1+ generally inc. 5/1 Lads/Coral/Totesport/Betfred/Stan James

Acapulco Bay, running from a lower handicap mark than when he won nicely at Warwick a couple of years ago, was nicely backed this morning, but weak on course. He ran well enough for a while, but faded towards the end to finish well beaten. He went off at 12/1.

Le Burf ran with some credit, staying on purposefully at the end to be placed, after going off at 5/1. Things just happened a bit quickly for him in the middle section of the race, but he's probably on a mark he can win off.

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

Acapulco Bay, 10th/15, 12/1 --- 12/1
Le Burf, 3rd/10, 5/1 --- 5/1
