Back in action

The last week's been quiet period for us, with racing seriously hampered by abandonments, and when there's been some racing on, nothing for us to quite get involved with.

Today though, we had two go for us.

We had:

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

1.55         Uttoxeter              Marleno                        1pt                          9/1 Paddy Power/BetVictor/Boyles/Stan James 10/1 Bet365/Skybet
3.55         Taunton                Umustbejoking              1pt                          12/1 + generally inc. 14/1 Coral/BetVictor/Boyles/SportingBet 20/1 Stan James

Marleno was given a patient ride from the back, and eased through looking a big danger two out, trading at 6/4 in running. A slow jump at the last didn't help and that, perhaps coupled with his big weight, put paid to his chances as he faded towards the finish, though still managed to keep on for a placed finish in third.

Umustbejoking went on to be weak in the markets so we feared the worst, and so it transpired, with the 4yo folding tamely after making the running for much of the contest. 

Summary of Results:

Marleno, 3rd/11, 10/1 --- 9/1
Umustbejoking, PU/8, 14/1 --- 20/1

A busy day of action in store for the last day of the month tomorrow, and hopefully we can end November on a high.
