Weekend Update

A fairly quiet weekend, after the comparative rush of selections seen from Wednesday to Friday, and despite some decent efforts unfortunately no returns for us win-only backers.

Let's start on Saturday where we had:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 0.5pt/1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.05 Kelso Pyjama Game 1pt 8/1+ generally inc. 9/1 Coral

The second time we've had Pyjama Game as a selection this year, and another placed effort. Things looked promising as he closed on the leader but his run flattened out and he had to make do with third, after going off at 9/1. Safe to say it was fairly frustrating to see Scotswell, who came third for us last week, run out a pretty comfortable winner on his first start since.

On to today, and we had two:

TIME COURSE SELECTION 0.5pt/1pt/2pt win Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.10 Hexham Bandanaman 1pt 7/1+generally inc.15/2 Bet365 8/1 Totesport
4.40 Hexham Oh Right 1pt 9/1+generally inc. 10/1 Stan James/Boyles 11/1 Bet365

Bandanaman went off at 11/2 and ran well enough for a good while, but the winner had skipped clear and a mistake at the last didn't help, and he faded out of the frame.

Oh Right put in a strong performance an hour and a half later, after going off at 8/1. He jumped the last in front, but was unfortunately hauled in by the favourite close to home, going down by less than two lengths.

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

Saturday 24th March 2012

Pyjama Game, 3rd/13, 8/1 --- 8/1

Sunday 25th March 2012

Bandanaman, 4th/6, 15/2 --- 11/2
Oh Right, 2nd/9, 9/1 --- 8/1

Since our last winner on Tuesday we've had 41.2% get placed, which is of little comfort to those of us backing to win, but at least they've generally speaking been running ok. We've also been beating SP with an average of 7.76/1 advised price, to 6.74/1 SP.

Let's hope we get our compensation in the days ahead!
