July further into profit!

Another excellent day, with Qualypso D'Allier winning as easily as they come at Worcester tonight to push July further into profit.

We had no selections yesterday, and today we had:

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

3.20         Catterick             Activate                          1pt                           4/1+generally inc.9/2 PP 5/1 Totesport/Stan James
3.40         Yarmouth            Saslong                           1pt                           4/1+generaly inc. 9/2 Totesport/Skybet/Boyles/
Betfred 5/1 Stan James
6.40         Worcester           Qualypso D'Allier             1pt                           10/1+generally inc. 11/1 Hills/PP/Totesport/Boyles/
Betfred 12/1 Stan James

Activate was really well backed this morning and it looked as if a long-term plan may have been hatched. An on-course drift wasn't part of the reckoning though, with Kevin Ryan's 5yo going off at 6/1, and despite travelling very sweetly being held up at the back he couldn't quicken up in the ground and fininshed 7th. No question that this horse is seriously well handicapped on his best form and there has to be a strong chance he'll be winning soon.

Saslong was also weak on course, with Mark Johnston's handicap debutant finishing last of six, perhaps hating the downpour the race was run in, after going off at 6/1.

So after a fairly uninspiring afternoon we looked to Qualypso D'Allier to turn things around. And what a performance it was. Going off a well backed 11/2 on his first start for Richard Woollacott, he was always travelling really well and just gradually, smoothly came through the field and eased clear to win in a canter, despite a small mistake at the last. Fantastic stuff!

Summary of Results:

11th July 2012
Activate, 7th/10, 5/1 --- 6/1
Saslong, 6th/6, 9/2 --- 6/1
Qualypso D'Allier, 1st/12 11/1 --- 11/2  (go to to see the closing stages)

To official results, we're 14pts up for July, although hopefully plenty of members will be in better shape than that, with better prices available about both our good priced winners this month than officially recorded.

Little doubt now we are on a good run, with 47.45pts of profit returned in just over six weeks, a ROI of a fantastic 68.77% and long may it continue.
