Pushing On

Regular blog-followers will know that we recently stopped reporting results in detail on the blog. These continued for members, but not so for the wider audience. Change of heart here, we're going to go back to regular blog reporting of results, starting today.


Another good day, which is becomming a bit of a theme at the moment, with The Ducking Stool winning in good style in the last at Yarmouth at 10/1 for us.

Not so good yesterday, and we'll start there with our latest update.

We had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.40         Carlisle                 Nemushka                      1pt                        9/2+generally inc. 5/1 Bet365/Totesport/BetVictor/Betfred                
4.55         Cartmel                Ben Eva                          1pt                        7/1+generally inc. 8/1 Bet365/Hills/Coral/Boyles&
others 9/1 SportingBet

Nemushka was quite nicely backed into 4/1 to make up for a troubled run in the Silver Bowl at Handicap, but could just never get competitive.

Ben Eva went off at 8/1 and never looked like landing a blow.

Today we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
4.10         Ffos Las                Amazing Valour              1pt                          7/1+generally inc. 15/2 Boyles 8/1 Bet365/Coral/Totesport/BetFred
6.05         Yarmouth              The Ducking Stool          1pt                          9/1+generally inc. 10/1 Lads/Bet365/Totesport/Boyles/

Amazing Valour set off in the joint-lead, but after a couple of slow jumps he immediately started struggling very badly and soon got pulled up. Presumably something wasn't quite right as there was plenty of market confidence about this one, going off at 5/1 and he should certainly have got further than the 6th in a 3mile contest..

So after three very poor efforts we turned to The Ducking Stool to continue to help things push forward, and she did so really well. She has something of an akward running style and seemed to be a little under pressure to hold her pitch in second as they turned for home, but it soon became apparent that Julia Feilden's 5yo was travelling as well as any and she soon quickened into a good lead, staying on strongly all the way to the line, a couple of lengths clear, after starting at 8/1, great stuff. 

Summary of Results:

4th June 2012

Nemushka, 4th/7, 5/1 --- 4/1
Ben Eva, PU/11, 8/1 --- 8/1

5th June 2012

Amazing Valour, PU/8, 8/1 --- 5/1
The Ducking Stool, 1st/11, 10/1 --- 8/1

In our last 17 bets, we've had five winners with 25pts of profit. Safe to say that it would be good to keep this run going for as long as possible!
