Tuesday update

A poor day. We can look at a couple of selections and wonder what may have been but ultimately 2.5pts down and we'll look for better tomorrow.

We had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 0.5pt/1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)

2.50 Newcastle Battle Honour 0.5pt 10/1+generally inc. 12/1 Lads/Skybet 14/1 Coral
3.00 Exeter Taffy Thomas 0.5pt 14/1+generally inc. 16/1 Lads&others 20/1 Totesport
4.50 Newcastle Safari Adventures 0.5pt 8/1 generally
5.00 Exeter Homer Run 1pt 5/1+generally inc. 6/1 Lads/Hills/Totesport&others

Battle Honour went off 10/1, was rousted along all too early and finished well back.

Much better from Taffy Thomas (SP 14/1), who gave us a good run for our money at big prices. Travelling nicely for a good while he was given a big bump and squeeze as he tried to mount a challenge before the last hurdle, effectively ending any chance, finishing fourth, beaten about six lengths in the end.

Likewise Safari Adventures was having a good time of it out the front after going off at 7/1, but was badly bumped five out by the eventual runner up which led to landing virtually sideways, causing him to lose all momentum and he was soon out of it. Was a long way from home, but he was travelling nicely enough and might be one to keep half an eye out for.

Homer Run stayed on to close on the leaders, but was never going to get there, finishing third, after starting at 9/2.

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

Battle Honour, 9th/11, 12/1 --- 10/1
Taffy Thomas, 4th/13, 16/1 --- 14/1
Safari Adventures, 5th/6, 8/1 --- 7/1
Homer Run, 3rd/8, 6/1 --- 9/2

On to tomorrow!
