Good weekend

A good weekend, with one winner from our two selections, thanks to a terrific performance from Handy Andy yesterday, showing a lot of determination and quality to win by a length at Newbury.

Let's start there - we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 0.5pt/1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.20 Newbury Handy Andy 1pt 7/1+generally inc. 8/1 Lads/Bet365/Coral/Boylesports/Stan James

Handy Andy was returning to the scene of a C&D triumph last year, after dropping down the weights following some poor performances. Always prominent, he still had enough in tank after pinging the last to get up to deny the joint-favourite Tickatack, after starting at 6/1. A great ride by Joe Tizzard for his dad and a really enjoyable win.

Today we had a couple of selections, though one was a non-runner:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 0.5pt/1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.10 Huntingdon Layla's Boy 0.5pt 10/1 generally
4.50 Sedgefield Darkan Road 1pt 8/1+generally inc. 9/1 Lads/Hills/Coral

Not a lot to report here really.

Layla's Boy was a non-runner.

Darkan Road was disappointing, ridden all too early and never really travelling, he ended up being pulled up. Perhaps the ground didn't help, but whatever, it was an altogether poor effort, after starting at 11/1.

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

Saturday 3rd March 2012:

Handy Andy, 1st/15, 8/1 --- 6/1

Sunday 4th March 2012:

Layla's Boy NR
Darkan Road, PU/11, 9/1 --- 11/1

So March springs into profit. Let's hope we can keep it there and really push on.
