Results catch-up

Hope you've had a good weekend, and have been enjoying the Olympics so far.
Apologies we're a little behind with our results update, but without further ado let's get stuck in.

We start last Wednesday where we had:

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

3.20         Worcester            Bromhead                     1pt                            13/2+generally inc. 7/1 Coral/Lads/PP&others
4.50         Worcester            Sahrati                           1pt                           8/1+generally inc. 9/1 PP 10/1 Coral/Stan James
8.50         Leicester              Swendab                       1pt                           13/2+generally inc. 7/1 Hills/Totesport/Betfred/StanJames 8/1 Bet365

Bromhead went off a well supported 9/2 shot and helped dictate a quick pace, in the front pair until two out, where he couldn't keep up with the front two and had to make do placing in third.

Sahrati struggled all too early and was the last to finish, after going off at 8/1 (backed on course from 12/1 into 8s).

Swendab was weak on course going off at 12/1 but ran well, staying on quite strongly into third, beaten less than a length.

On Thursday we had:

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

4.00        Uttoxeter              Chasing Aces                  1pt                         6-1 gen, 13-2 PP, Coral

Chasing Aces started a well backed 3/1 and touched around evens in running as he looked the most likely winner coming up the straight. But he made a mess of the last hurdle, and weakened in the last 75 yards or so to finish down the field, frustrating stuff.

On Friday we had:

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

4.50       South                    Morning Farewell                    1  pt                  8-1+ inc 9-1 PP, Sky,Boyle,SJames

Morning Farwell went off an easy to back 12/1 but was in the process of running a really nice race when Lucy Alexander sharply pulled him up when in second with around three flights left to jump, with the 8yo picking up some sort of injury.

On Saturday we had:

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

2.30         Newcastle             Ralphy Boy                  2pt                            12/1 generally 14/1 PP/Boyles 16/1SportingBet
3.35         Newcastle             Descaro                       1pt                            11/2+generally inc. 6/1 Bet365/BetVictor&others 7/1 SportingBet
8.15         Salisbury               Juno The Muffinman     1pt                             6/1+generally inc. 13/2 BetVictor 7/1 Hills/Coral/Totesport&others

Ralphy Boy was our first 2pt pick for a while and we had some decent value with Kevin Ryan's 3yo going off a nicely backed 7/1. Ridden prominently on his first start for his new stable, he was a bit outpaced as things got serious and finished fairly well beaten.

Descaro started at 7/1 and stayed on quite well in the closing stages but was never going to get seriously involved.

Tom Dascombe's in great form at the moment, and we almost got a piece of it with Juno The Muffinman running well at Salisbury. Sadly he met quite a bit of trouble in running, being barged this way and that before squeezing through and staying on well, but the winner had got first run and the selection couldn't get there, after going off at 11/2.

Then today we had:

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

2.40        Carlisle                  Majestic Manannan      1pt                           5/1 Hills/Bet365/Coral/BetVictor/PP/SportingBet
4.30        Stratford                Lodgician                     1pt                           12/1+generally inc. 14/1 Bet365 16/1 Stan James/SportingBet

And it was a cracking performance by Majestic Manannan to get us back to winning ways. Leading virtually from the start, Dandy Nicholls' 3yo was always travelling nicely and when he was asked to quicken again and put the race to bed he did so really well. He started a nicely backed 7/2. If you didn't see the race, here's video of it:

Lodgician (10/1sp) never looked to be travelling too kindly but steadily stayed on well from the back to finish third in the end, beaten around four lengths.
