Getting up on the line

Running Total Since January 1st 2010: +283.07pts

A terrific 8/1 winner today, with Share Option getting up on the line to win the 2.50 at Bangor, rewarding an excellent, determined ride from 3lb claimer Lee Edwards.

We had three going for us in total today:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
12.40 Bangor Drom 1pt 8/1 generally
1.10 Bangor Bear Dancing 1pt 5/1+generally inc. 11/2 Totesport/Boylesports/Betfred/
2.50 Bangor Share Option 1pt 5/1+generally inc. 11/2VC&others 6/1 Bet365/Lads/Totesport&others

Drom continued to nicely backed into 11/2, and ran well for a good while, before fading from about four out, to finish 5th.

Bear Dancing travelled nicely enough before making a mistake after which he never seemed to really be travelling and ended up getting pulled up, after going off at 11/2.

Then came Share Option, who won a dramatic conditional jockeys handicap. Always going nicely enough, it looked as though he was going to have to settle for minor honours when Pampelonne went for home and stretched about four lengths clear going to the last. But while the leader met the last ok, he seemed to lose his back legs momentarily, which gave the initiative to Tony Carroll's 9yo who stayed on really strongly under a cracking ride by Lee Edwards to get up by a neck. While he was backed into around 4/1 earlier in the day, he drifted to 8/1 by the off which gave us a couple of extra points thanks to BOG.

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

Drom, 5th/11, 8/1 --- 11/2
Bear Dancing, PU/9, 11/2 --- 6/1
Share Option, 1st/10, 6/1 --- 8/1

On to tomorrow!
