Poor day

Not good today, with two selections running poorly and the other making too many mistakes to get competitive.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.25 Ffos Las Federstar 1pt 6/1 generally 13/2 Paddy Power/SportingBet
3.00 Ffos Las Changing Lanes 1pt 9/2+generally inc. 5/1 Totesport/Boylesports/Betfred/SportingBet 11/2 Coral
3.25 Doncaster Vin De Roy 1pt 9/1+generally inc. 10/1 Hills/Lads/Totesport/Skybet/Betfred

Two of these drifted which is as we know is often a bad sign.

First of all Federstar was very weak on the exchanges pre-first show on course, where Martin Keighley's 10yo was supported in again from 9/1 to 15/2 - still longer than advised this morning. Then came a poor performance, he was one of the first off the bridle and was tailed off when pulled up. Not good.

Changing Lanes fared similarly, starting at 6/1 he was being pushed along all too early and also didn't even manage to complete.

Vin De Roy at least made it round, and was supported into 7/1 SP, but made numerous jumping errors which cost him any chance. He was losing at least a length with pretty much every obstacle he passed, and in fairness the fact he was still there in contention three out was pretty impressive given that, and if he can improve in that regard he may be one to keep an eye out for.

Confirmation of results with prices:

Federstar, PU/6, 6/1 --- 15/2
Changing Lanes, PU/7, 5/1 --- 6/1
Vin De Roy, 6th/9, 8/1 --- 7/1

Let's certainly hope for better tomorrow!
