2012 underway

So we're under way for the new year! Unfortunately neither of our two selections could give us win-backers a return today, but away we go and roll on the next twelve months.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.25 Musselburgh Rumble Of Thunder 1pt 6/1+generally inc. 13/2 Paddy Power 7/1 Lads/Bet365/Hills/Coral/Totesport&others
3.00 Musselburgh Premier Sagas 1pt 13/2+generally inc. 7/1 Lads/Hills/Bet365/PP &others

Rumble Of Thunder was possibly one that got away, Kate Walton's 6yo was beginning to really pick up coming to the last and was within a length or two of the leader but hit the last hurdle so hard he almost fell, giving up all chance, after starting at 7/1. A frustrating way to start the new year!

Then came Premier Sagas, who was nicely backed into 5/1 at the off, and stayed on well towards the end, into second, well behind the comfortable winner Fiendish Flame (a winner for us last month).

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

Rumble Of Thunder, 6th/11, 7/1 --- 7/1
Premier Sagas, 2nd/11, 7/1 --- 5/1

It was interesting to see, by the way, an unplaced selection for us last month, Mostly Bob, landing a big late gamble at Cheltenham today. Available at 11/1 in the morning, he was backed near the off right into 9/2 and stayed on really well in the 1.35 to win quite easily in the end. Our "Next Time Out" analysis continues to be of great interest, looking at those runners who miss the frame for us.
