Not quite golden

Running Total Since January 1st 2010: +273.07pts

Well, no returns today but a couple of decent efforts and at least we got a value price with both of these, which hasn't been the case as often as we would like just lately.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.00 Plumpton It's A Classic 1pt 5/1 generally
2.30 Plumpton Jenny's Gold 2pt 11/1+generally 12/1 Lads/Hills/Totesport/Coral/
PaddyPower among others

It's A Classic ran well, but was just a bit unlucky to run into one obviously well ahead of the handicapper. Always up there, he stayed on quite nicely, into a clear second, but was never going to get close to the winner, after starting at 7/2.

Then came Jenny's Gold, our third 2pt pick in the last few days. She travelled nicely for a good part of the race and looked like she might be a player as they approached home, touching just over 2/1 in running. But her effort emptied out and she finished 6th in the end, after going off at 9/1.

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

It's A Classic, 2nd/11, 5/1 --- 7/2
Jenny's Gold, 6th/12, 12/1 --- 9/1

It's been a pretty frustrating last few days, so let's hope we get a bit of Christmas cheer tomorrow!
