Good Monday

A good Monday to follow our good Saturday, with a comfortable winner today. We almost followed up 25 minutes later, but it wasn't quite to be.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.20 Ayr Overlady 1pt 6/1+generally inc. 13/2Bet365&others 7/1 Totesport/Boyles&others 15/2 Coral/Stan James
2.45 Plumpton Tarquinius 1pt 5/1+generally inc. 11/2 Lads/Boyles/SportingBet

Overlady was making her first since last March and Stuart Coltherd did a fantastic job to get her ready to strike on her reappearance. She was always travelling well and when she took it up we saw the happy sight of her still going nicely as more and more began to struggle in behind. The eventual runner up, Rossini's Dancer, kept trying to get to her, but Overlady always had more up her sleeve, and one more good jump at the last finished the job, and she went on to win by eight lengths. Very nice!

Then came Tarquinius who did his best to follow up for us, always up there and he did his level best to close on the bottom-weight winner, with a slight mistake at the second last not helping his chances. He kept on all the way to the line, but the victor was always pulling out just enough to repel his challenge by less than two lengths, after Charlie Mann's 9yo started at 9/2.

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

Overlady, 1st/10, 13/2 --- 15/2
Tarquinius, 2nd/9, 5/1 --- 9/2

A good run at the moment, with three winners from our last six selections, let's hope we can have another good day tomorrow as January draws to a close!
