Results update

We'll be doing our November review shortly, but first just a quick look back at the last couple of days.

Starting yesterday, we had:

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

12.30      Folk                           Promised Wings              1pt                     5-1 general

Promised Wings went off a solid 5/1 shot after being quite nicely backed in the morning. We don't know for sure of course, but for us this was a pretty good example of a jockey in Tom Cannon having been told that the money's down and not to give up on him. Rousted along all too early he looked like he was going to finish well beaten, if he finished at all, as kept coming on and off the bridle, but Tom continued to work on him and helped him stay on right to the line, snatching second near the finish - sadly quite some way behind the winner. So the each-way money landed, but no returns for us win-only backers.

Then today we had:

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

1.40         Hereford                Aureate                       1pt                           8/1 generally 

Aureate started a well backed 11/2 for Brian Forsey but from halfway never really looked like getting involved. He wasn't helped by a faller three out when trying to stay on, but while he kept on into 5th he was never going well enough to be considered in any way unlucky.

Summary of Results:

4th December 2012:

Promised Wings, 2nd/7, 5/1 --- 5/1

5th December 2012:

Aureate, 5th/11, 8/1 --- 5/1

We'll be back shortly with our look at November.
