Results Update

A very quiet stretch with four selections since our last update, unfortunately with no returns among them.

Last Friday, the 7th December, we had:

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

1.30         Exeter                  Shaking Hands               1pt                            6/1 generally 13/2 Hills/Bet365/PP/Boyles

Shaking Hands went off a nicely backed 11/2 but we knew we were in trouble the moment the commentator revealed ten seconds before the off that the tongue-tie he was meant to be using wasn't in position. Apparently they couldn't get it on the horse. He went on to run well for much of the 4 mile contest before downing tools and ending up pulling up, pretty frustrating.

On Saturday we had:

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

1.15         Wetherby             Amore Mio                   1pt                            11/2 generally 6/1 Coral/SportingBet
3.20        Aintree                  Blackstaff                      1pt                            10/1 generally 12/1 Totesport/Betfred 14/1 Hills/Bet365

Amore Mio started at 4/1 and stayed on to finish third, while Blackstaff was also nicely supported, going off at 9/1 but made mistakes and fell at the 9th.

And that was it until today when we had:

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

1.50         Taunton                Rajdhani Express           1pt                          4/1 PP/Coral/Boyles/SportingBet/Stan James/Bluesq

Rajdhani Express started at 4/1 and was still going beautifully when he moved into a share of the lead, trading at shorter than 1/2 in running. Unfortunately he fell three out, leaving Changing Times with a straight forward win. It was no guarantee that Nicky Henderson's 5yo would have won had he stayed on his feet but he would certainly have had a massive chance, possibly one that got away.

Summary of Results: 

Friday 7th December 2012:

Shaking Hands, PU/10, 13/2 --- 11/2

Saturday 8th December 2012:

Amore Mio, 3rd/8, 6/1 --- 4/1
