Off and running for the year

After six placed efforts in our first eight selections of 2012, including four finishing second, we were pleased to get in the winners' enclosure at Southwell this afternoon.

We had two today:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.10 Southwell Tisfreetdream 1pt 7/1+generally inc. 15/2 Coral 8/1 Bet365/Totesport/SkyBet/Betfred/SportingBet
2.40 Southwell Johnny Owen 1pt 4/1+generally inc. 9/2 Hills/Paddy Power

Tisfreetdream ran well, travelling nicely for a long way, but didn't have that finishing kick from a couple of hurdles' out, to end up finishing third, after starting a nicely backed 5/1.

While there was good support about for Tisfreetdream, there was plenty more about Johnny Owen in the next. It was the David Brace 6yo's handicap debut and he sauntered to success. Once Paddy Brennan let him have his head and take the lead, he just powered clear and was never looking back (although Brennan did quite a few times!). After showing precious little since a decent bumper debut, he was absolutely thrown in, starting at 3/1, and he's entered to run again at Hereford on Sunday.

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

Tisfreetdream, 3rd/13, 8/1 --- 5/1
Johnny Owen, 1st/8, 4/1 --- 3/1

We've had a very good start to the year in terms of getting the value and it's good to get off the mark win wise too. Roll on tomorrow!
