Bank Holiday Update

We hope you've had a good Bank Holiday weekend, despite the weather (in most places) today!

It's good to be able to report a profitable update since our last report, about time too! Unfortunately we couldn't follow up yesterday's winner today, but let's hope for a strong end to August in the days ahead.

Unusually, we had no selections on Saturday and then yesterday we had:

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

5.50        Yarm                   Highlife Dancer                        1pt                5-1+ inc 6-1 B365,VCBet, PP 7-1 S James

Mick Channon's 4yo won well, after starting at 6/1. Prominent throughout when he was asked to go and win his race he duly did, pushed out to the line, his 7th victory in 28 outings, not a bad strike rate at all - albeit this his first victory  for nearly a year (first in 13 attempts). If you missed the race and would like to see the closing stages, they're here:

Then today we had:

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

4.00      Newc                   Foreign Rhythm                     1pt                            8-1+ inc 9-1 BFred,Tote,SJames,VCBet; 10-1B365
5.20      Rip                       Miss Ella Jade                        1pt                            9-2 general, 5-1B365,Sky,BSq

Foreign Rhythm went off at 9/1, and was in touch, travelling quite nicely for a good while, but couldn't really land a blow when asked for an effort and finished 5th.

Miss Ella Jade looked promising for a while, but while she comfortably finished in the places in third, she was quite some way behind the front two, after starting at 4/1.
