Results update

It continues to be a fairly quiet stretch, with no selections on Saturday, and then a couple of below-par performances at Ayr yesterday and today, although at least in Bountiful Girl's case we got some cracking value - just a shame she couldn't justify the serious support she received!

Yesterday we had:

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

4.30         Ayr                     New Lease Of Life        1pt                           4/1 generally

New Lease Of Life went off at 6/1 and just never looked like getting involved - not showing enough pace after being held up early.

Today we had:

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

4.00         Ayr                      Bountiful Girl                   1pt                       7/1+generally inc. 8/1 Hills/Bet365/Coral/Boyles&
others 17/2 SportingBet

Bountiful Girl was backed throughout the day and opened on course at 9/2 - and then supported in further to 11/4 at post time. Sadly she faded out of contention a couple of furlongs from home and was well beaten.

Summary of Results:

Sunday 8th July 2012
New Lease Of Life, 6th/8, 4/1 --- 6/1

Monday 9th July 2012Bountiful Girl, 5th/7, 8/1 --- 11/4

Just to say as well, it was with mixed feelings we saw Acknowledgement go in at an SP of 12/1 at Ayr this afternoon (beaten selection for us last time). Not very well backed today, perhaps some fingers burnt after he didn't do the business last month (although did meet trouble in running), but at least it showed the vibes that the horse was ready to win was right.

Let's see what tomorrow brings!
