Great winner

Running Total Since January 1st 2010: +279.07pts

A great winner this afternoon in the form of Triple Bluff, who won with any amount in hand at Taunton. No such luck with our other selection, so we finish the day 6pts up.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.00 Taunton Legion D'Honneur 1pt 6/1 generally
2.30 Taunton Triple Bluff 1pt 7/1 generally

Legion D'Honneur was a bit short of room as he tried to creep closer to the leaders and after that he was never really in it, although he was staying on again towards the finish, after going off at 8/1.

Then came Triple Bluff, who continued to be nicely backed into 5/1 and won like a 1/5 shot, always tanking along, taking it up about five fences from home, and just cantering clear of a struggling field. It was just a case of surviving the last couple of jumps, and though he wasn't hugely tidy, he did it nicely enough and ended up winning eased down. Lovely stuff!

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

Legion D'Honneur, 9th/11, 6/1 --- 8/1
Triple Bluff, 1st/10, 7/1 --- 5/1
