Not so Lucky William

Just the one selection to finish off the festival, in the very last race.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 0.5pt/1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
5.15 Cheltenham Lucky William 0.5pt 16/1 generally

Lucky William went off a 14/1 chance and was in midfield, when he blundered and unseated his rider at the 8th fence, so we'll never know if we were going to end Cheltenham 2012 on a high! Safe to say he would have had to have performed a terrific display to finish in front of the Nicky Henderson combo who finished 1-2, well ahead of third.

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

Lucky William, UR/21, 16/1 --- 14/1

It was a shame to see Kauto Star pulled up today, but at least he's healthy and can now surely look forward to a long and happy retirement. In terms of our Cheltenham competition, he was a popular choice among those members who entered, as was Long Run of course. Syncronised had a few supporters, one of whom has won first prize, and the £50 Amazon voucher, with AOC coming with a late charge to nab Supreme Novice and Frannie on the line! The other two named share second place, so congratulations also to them, £25 Amazon vouchers each coming their way.
