Weekend results

It's fair to say we've had better weeks results-wise, with the weekend doing little to turn things around, very disappointing! The good thing about it is it won't take much to better it this week coming, so we look forward to a brighter seven days ahead.

Let's start our latest round-up yesterday, where we had:

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

3.40         Ripon                   Toptempo                     1pt                          4/1 generally 9/2 Bet365 5/1 Stan James
5.15         Market Rasen      Nosecond Chance          1pt                         7/1+generally inc. 8/1 Bet365/BetVictor/Totesport & others
5.25         Cartmel                Lieutenant Miller            1pt                          6/1+generally inc. 13/2 BetVictor 7/1 Coral/StanJames 8/1 Totesport

Toptempo (8/1sp) was weak in the market, and after being outpaced going into three furlongs from home stayed on quite nicely without ever remotely looking like getting involved. She did show a suggestion of ability but yesterday wasn't her day.

Nosecond Chance was quite solid in the market, going off at 6/1, but we'll never know if he was going to reward that support, as he unseated his rider when hampered by a falling horse after the second fence, Well Green, who sadly was fatally injured.

Lieutenant Miller went off at 4/1 but was driven along all too early - which seemd to galvanise him a little as he got back into contention, only to fade again with Andrew Tinkler soon hoisting the white flag and pulling him up.

And today we had:

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

4.10         Newton Abbot      Silsula                            1pt                         9/1 Bet365/PP/Boyles/SkyBet 10/1 Totesport/Betfred

Silsula (9/1) was back over fences and nicely backed this morning to make the most of the drier ground, but she jumped poorly from the start and just never looked remotely like getting involved.

Summary of Results:

Saturday 21st July 2012

Toptempo, 4th/5, 9/2 --- 8/1
Nosecond Chance, UR/10,  8/1 --- 6/1
Lieutenant Miller, PU/15, 8/1 --- 4/1

Sunday 22nd July 2012

Silsula, PU/7, 10/1 --- 9/1

So not very pretty, roll on the new week and a change in fortune!
