Another placed effort

A month of near misses so far, today's second place finish our fifth of the month already (31% of all selections). We're running at a placed strike rate of 75% at the moment, with twelve out of our sixteen so far finishing in the frame.

Today we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.10 Taun Don't Panic 1pt 8-1 + 9-1 Lads, Blue Square

Don't Panic was very nicely supported down to an SP of 4/1, obviously a big run was expected, and so it proved with Nick Scolfield's 8yo finishing in the frame for the first time since November 2009. He pulled too hard for his own good in the early stages of the race, and was ridden some way from home, before staying on well at the end to finish second, some way behind the winner. The early exertions probably didn't help, though the winner did it well.

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

Don't Panic, 2nd/9, 9/1 --- 4/1

Running into one has been a bit of a theme this month so far but at least most of the selections are running well and we should get our rewards soon.
