More placed but..

We had a couple more placed today but that's no good for us win-only backers, so a poor day, with four points lost. Not a lot of consolation around price-wise either, which is particularly disappointing.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.20 Carlisle Inga Bird 1pt 4/1+generally inc. 9/2 Coral/Bet365/SportingBet
2.05 Hereford Changing Lanes 1pt 13/2+generally inc. 7/1 Coral/Totesport/Betfred
3.30 Carlisle Teenando 1pt 8/1+generally inc. 10/1 Lads/Bet365/Stan James
4.15 Hereford Priest Field 1pt 9/2+generally inc. 5/1 Lads/Bet365/Coral+others

Inga Bird stayed on well into second but was never going to catch the winner, after starting at 13/2.

Changing Lanes, who started at 13/2, ran really poorly, just never travelling and out of the race from quite some way out.

Teenando put in a game effort, up there throughout, he didn't have the toe to go with the winner but stayed on well for third, after going off at 9/1.

Priest Field led for a fair part of the contest, but was readily passed by the principles to cap a frustrating afternoon. He started at 7/1.

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

Inga Bird, 2nd/11, 9/2 --- 13/2
Changing Lanes, PU/11, 7/1 --- 13/2
Teenando, 3rd/8, 10/1 --- 9/1
Priest Field, 9th/10, 5/1 --- 7/1

8 of our 15 win selections have been placed this month, which is no consolation at all for those members who follow us in backing win-only (apart from perhaps a bit of a run for our money).

A tough start to the month but things can turn very quickly and we look forward for a nice return or two soon.
