Tough going

Tough going at the moment, with a couple more placed efforts but no winner.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.45 Newcastle Fabalu 1pt 6/1+ generally 13/2 Totesport/Paddy Power/VC/Betfred&others
3.15 Newcastle Pyjama Game 1pt 6/1 generally maybe some 7/1 Stan James
3.25 Warwick Romulus D'Artaix 1pt 4/1 generally 9/2 Hills/Skybet

Fabalu went off at 7/1, was struggling early and was the last to finish, poor.

Next up Pyjama Game was being cajoled along quite some way from home with Lucy Alexander doing a good job in keeping him going, and in the end he stayed on pretty well to not be beaten too far in the end, going down by seven lengths, in third. He was well backed into 7/2.

We also got the price with Romulus D'Artaix, who started at 3/1, but couldn't cope with Arctic Ben who shot clear early on and couldn't be caught, with Alan King's 6yo finishing second, beaten just over ten lengths.

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

Fabalu, 5th/11, 6/1 --- 7/1
Pyjama Game, 3rd/10, 6/1 --- 7/2
Romulus D'Artaix, 2nd/8, 4/1 --- 3/1

The weather's threatening to turn pretty cold these next few days, hopefully racing won't be affected and we can finish January strongly.
