Results catch up

It's proving a frustrating November so far results-wise, but at least from a price point of view it's been a decent start to the month.

Let's look back at the last three days, starting on Friday:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.40 Hexham Mighty Magnus 1pt 6/1 generally plus 13/2 Hills/Coral/Boyle/ 7/1 Skybet/Totesport/Betfred

Mighty Magnus went off at 5/1 and was up there for a long time, before fading from around two out to finish well behind.

Then on Saturday we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.10 Wincanton Point West 1pt 7/1 + generally inc. 15/2 SportingBet 8/1 Totesport/VC/Betfred
2.05 Kelso The Shy Man 1pt 6/1 + generally inc. 13/2 Bet365/Totesport/Bluesq 7/1 SportingBet
3.00 Sandown Paintball 1pt 6/1 + generally inc. 13/2 Totesport/Boyle/Betfred 7/1 Lads

Point West went off at 8/1 and was given plenty to do from the back, he was staying on towards the end but was never really going to get there when he fell at the last.

The Shy Man started at 11/2 but never showed up, beaten a long way from home.

Better from Paintball, who was backed into 4/1 and stayed on to be placed although was never going to get close to the easy winner.

So, on to Sunday and we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.10 Ffos Las No Principles 1pt 7/1 +generally inc. 15/2 Hills 8/1 Bet365/Skybet/Totesport/Betfred
3.25 Market Rasen Beamazed 1pt 7/1+ generally inc. 15/2 Totesport/Betfred 8/1 Lads/Skybet/Boyle
4.00 Market Rasen North Stack 1pt 5/1 generally 11/2 Lads

No Principles was held up right at the back but looked to be going well enough and moved up through the field late on, but just didn't have the out and out pace to really challenge the front couple, finishing 6th but only beaten just over three lengths, after going off at 6/1.

Beamazed was right up there and looked to be going well (touching nearly 5/4 in running) until the winner came up behind and quickened past him a couple of fences from home, finishing second in the end, starting at 15/2 (after opening on course at 11/2)

Then came North Stack, who was another seemingly going along well enough, touching odds in running on his chasing and handicap debut, but was just a bit outpaced close to home, going down in third by five lengths.

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

Friday 4th November:

Mighty Magnus, 5th/7, 13/2 --- 5/1

Saturday 5th November:

Point West, F/13, 7/1 --- 8/1
The Shy Man, PU/11, 6/1 --- 11/2
Paintball, 3rd/12, 6/1 --- 4/1

Sunday 6th November:

No Principles, 6th/10, 8/1 --- 6/1
Beamazed, 2nd/7, 8/1 --- 15/2
North Stack, 3rd/10, 11/2 ---9/2

So all in all a frustrating collection of results but from a price stats point of view 6 out of 7 went off shorter than we had in the morning so we're happy with that.

In fact 10 out of 11 selections for us this month have started shorter than we had, so from that point of view a strong start to the month, the winners will come along in their own time.
