Little Christmas cheer!

It's been a frustrating couple of weeks or so and it's continued over the last couple of days, with three selections being turned over, two of them starting nicely shorter than backed at and one running a big race but just finding one too good. 

Yesterday we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.10         Bangor                  Tarbeck                       1pt                           11/2 generally 6/1 Hills/PP

Tarbeck went off a very well backed 7/2 and ran well for a long time but in the end didn't get home in the mud and finished well beaten.

Today we had:

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

1.10        Lingfield                 Colebrooke                  1pt                           8/1+generally inc. 9/1 Hills/PP/Bluesq 10/1 Betfred
1.35        Doncaster              Fiendish Flame              1pt                           10/1 generally 11/1 BetVictor SportingBet

Colebrooke was nicely supported, going off at 7/1, and the 4yo ran a cracking race in the heavy conditions. Always prominent, he was bang there coming to the last couple of hurdles, but the David Pipe trained favourite Tanerko Emery came through to readily take it up before the last and won by five lengths. Colebrooke was well clear of third, but no returns for us win only backers.

25 minutes later at Doncaster Fiendish Flame (10/1sp) set off in the lead as is his way and seemed to be going well enough for a while, but faded approaching three out to finish fifth.

Summary of Results:

Friday 14th December 2012:

Tarbeck, 8th/8, 6/1 --- 7/2

Saturday 15th December 2012:

Colebrooke, 2nd/8, 9/1 --- 7/1
Fiendish Flame, 5th/8, 10/1 --- 10/1

Three NH meetings tomorrow, and let's hope we can spin the week back into profit with a nice winner or two.
