Forward a bit, back a bit

We've dropped back a few points this weekend, but we were quite close to a cracking return when our 2pt 14/1 shot on Saturday came second. Once one or two of those go in we'll be flying again.

Let's start with yesterday, where we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.30 Ascot Annimation 2pt 10/1+generally inc. 12/1 Bet365/Hills/SkyBet 14/1Totesport/Betfred/SportingBet
3.20 Ascot Dan Breen 1pt 9/2+ generally inc. 5/1 Bet365

Totesport held Annimation at 14/1 for a good while but the support really came later, with Seamus Mullins' 7yo going off at 6/1. She ran a good race, travelling nicely, but the winner just took the race by the scruff of the neck by going for home about three out and ours was a little too far off the pace to pick up the move. She stayed on strongly into second, but well beaten by the winner. Would have been a lovely pick-up, but not quite to be this time.

Dan Breen was well supported as David Pipe looked to continue his good form, going off at 7/2. While he was up there for a good while he suddenly dropped away in most disappointing fashion. Ironically his stable mate won the race.

And then today we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.30 Exeter Baseball Ted 1pt 5/1 generally inc Lads/Hills/Bet365
2.45 Towcester Beat All Out 1pt 9/1 + generally, inc 10/1 Bet365, 11/1 Boyles 12/1 Lads

And neither of these did a whole lot for us to say the least.

Baseball Ted was looking to win the race for the second year running and helped set the pace, but faded out of things, after going off 5/1

We didn't see much of Beat All Out's performance with the fog descending at Towcester, but it was clear it wasn't up to much, although he did seem to pick up in the middle of the race before dropping away, after going off at 10/1
