Results Update

Quite how we haven't had a winner since our last results update is anyone's guess, with two selections getting turned over back to back after trading at around 1.10 in running. Practically the same odds, if not shorter, as seeing Frankel getting turned over twice in a row! Just sums things up at the moment really but we push on and look forward to better times ahead. They will come again, sooner or later, but there's no question it's tough at the moment.

First up, Tuesday, where we had:
TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)

4.55        Perth                     Toshi                             1pt                           9/2+generally inc. 5/1 Coral/PP/Boyles/SkyBet/Sporting Bet 11/2 Stan James

Toshi went off at 6/1, skipped clear of the field and was still going really nicely coming up to the last. He traded at 1.10 in running, but was joined by the favourite under an inspired Richard Johnson ride and was outgunned on the run-in.


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

2.15         Lingfield               Spiritual Art                  1pt                         11/2+generally inc. 6/1 Bet365/Totesport/Coral&others 13/2 Stan James

It may have been back on the level, but similarly to Toshi, we were caught close home after seemingly moving into an unassailable lead with Spiritual Art (6/1sp), but was just touched off in the last strides, after trading at 1.11. <Deep breath.>

Spiritual Art, 2nd/10, 6/1 --- 6/1

On to Thursday and we had:

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

5.25         Ffos Las               Illysantachristina               1pt                       9/2+ generally inc. 5/1 Bet365/PP 11/2 SportingBet
6.40         Folkestone           Serene Oasis                    1pt                       5/1+generally inc. 11/2 Lads/Totesport 6/1 Boyles
8.00         Cartmel                Knockans Breeze             1pt                       9/2+generally inc. 5/1 Bet365/Boyles

Illysantachristina was up there throughout, after going off at 4/1 but weakened before the last, finishing third.

Serene Oasis was nicely supported on course, going off at 4/1. Mick Channon's 3yo was held up, brought outside for a challenge and didn't have enough to get serious in the closing stages.

We knew our fate before the off with Knockans Breeze, who went off at 14/1 (21.09 at BSP) and never remotely looked like getting involved.

We didn't have any selections on Friday.
