Marvellous Midnight

Running Total Since January 1st 2010: +283.07pts

A cracking winner today to push December back to +6pts, with Midnight Haze putting in a really gutsy performance to win, in the end, quite comfortably at Ludlow today.

We had three selections in all:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.20 Taunton She's On The Case 1pt 5/1+generally inc. 11/2 Bet365/Coral/Boylesports maybe some 6/1 SkyBet 13/2 SportingBet
2.40 Ludlow Midnight Haze 1pt 11/2+generally inc. 6/1 Lads/Hills/Skybet/SportingBet/Stan James
3.10 Ludlow Bill The Yank 1pt 9/1+generally inc. 10/1 Hills/VC/Coral&others maybe some 11/1 Stan James

She's On The Case (SP 5/1) was held up out the back, but couldn't quicken through the field quickly enough to get competitive, although she stayed on nicely enough into fourth to show that she probably has a race in her before too long.

Midnight Haze was the star of the day, helping to force the pace throughout in pretty rough conditions, he battled ahead, repelling a series of challengers to storm home in the end by more than ten lengths. Another great training performance with Kim Bailey's 9yo winning again after a long lay off, this time around eleven months, after starting at 9/2.

Bill The Yank was reported to have returned lame, finishing tailed off, after doubling in odds in the hour pre-race (SP 16/1).

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

She's On The Case, 4th/13, 11/2 --- 5/1
Midnight Haze, 1st/9, 6/1 --- 9/2
Bill The Yank, 9th/9, 10/1 --- 16/1

Interestingly, three of our recent selections performed with credit again today. Qualitee won at 3/1, Inga Bird won at 10/1 and Posh Emily came third at 16/1. These three came 1st, 2nd and 1st for us respectively in the last two or three weeks.
