Ending 2012 on a high!

After the spectacular gains seen in 2010 and 2011, 2012 wasn't exactly an easy year for us, we had some tough runs and many many big priced seconds, but at least we ended on a high with our very last bet of the year winning at an SP of 12/1.

We'll post a review of December shortly, as as well as a look back at 2012 as a whole as well, but for now let's have a look at our results since our last proper update.

On Boxing Day we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.15         Sedgefield           Along Came Rosie           1pt                         5/1 generally
2.30         Sedgefield           Sergeant Pink                   1pt                         12/1 Hills/Lads/Totesport/Bluesq 16/1 Stan James
3.20         Fontwell              Buffalo Creek                  1pt                         5/1 genereally


1.20 Towcester Callhimwhatyouwant 7/1
2.05 Fontwell Pass The Time 5/1
2.55 Wetherby Tyrone House 7/1
3.25 Wincanton Mon Chevalier  13/2

Along Came Rosie was a massive drifter, I think our biggest ever, going off at incredible 16/1 at SP and naturally it was no surprise to see her get pulled up.

Much better was from Sergeant Pink who went off at 14/1 but was beaten just two lengths in second, and staying on all the way to the line too. 

Buffalo Creek started at 3/1 but was pulled up.

The Of Interest horses produced a blank return.

December 27th we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
No Selections


4.00      Wolv   Sunrise Dance 14-1

And this was a cracking "of interest" winner, with Sunrise Dancer going off at 6/1, making all and never looking in any danger. 

On December 28th we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
No selections


1.40 Leicester Capellini 6/1
2.10 Leicetser I Can Run Can You 8/1
2.50 Catterick Pamak D'Airy 3/1

Capellini hit a low in-running of 1.08 but finished second, meaning there was no "of interest" winner here.

On December 29th we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.25         Kelso                  Political Paddy               1pt                           6/1 generally 13/2 PP/Boyles
3.30         Kelso                  Stopped Out                  1pt                           9/2 generally 

2.30 Newbury Arbeo 9/2
2.55 Doncaster Carpincho 14/1 Brunswick Gold 10/1
3.00 Kelso Snapping Turtle 3/1
3.50 Newbury Chatterbox 5/1

Political Paddy went off at 5/1 but ran no sort of race finishing well beaten.

Much better was from Stopped Out, who after starting at 3/1 made all, quickened clear and won easily, great stuff.

It was also a good day for the "of interest" mentions, with Arbeo and Chatterbox both winning (4/1 and 5/1 sps respectively).

On December 30th we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
No Selections


Taunton 3.30 Kartanian 7/1
Taunton 4.00 Jupiter Rex 12/1

Another good day here for the Of Interest runners, with Jupiter Rex winning at Taunton after going off at 5/1. 

On New Year's Eve we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.10         Uttoxeter              South O'The Border         1pt                       10/1+generally inc. 11/1 Hills/Totesport/Boyles/BetFred/SportingBet
3.10         Uttoxeter              Bally Sands                      1pt                       7/1 generally 8/1 PP/Coral/SportingBet 17/2 Stan James


12.40 Uttoxeter Mirific 10/1
2.40 Uttoxeter Molko Jack 7/2

South O'The Border ran no sort of race, pulling up after starting at 8/1.

Bally Sands was our final pick of 2012 and it wasn't pleasing to see him drift alarmingly to 12/1 - but contrary to what we would usually expect he ran an absolute cracker, always there or thereabouts and pinging the last hurdle to win by half a length, a terrific winner.

No successs here for the of interest picks, with both running unplaced.

On New Years' Day we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.45         Catterick              Nicene Creed               1pt                           12/1 Hills/Bet365/Totesport/Boyles/BetVictor/Betfred


12.35 Musselburgh Jonny Delta 11/2
1.20 Fakenham Ubaldo Des Menhies 7/1
1.45 Catterick Helium 7/1
2.45 Musselburgh Rumble Of Thunder 6/1
3.15 Exeter Quinte du Chatelet 9/2

Nicene Creed went off a solid 13/2 chance so we certainly had the value, but he never really looked like getting involved, finishing 6th.

Ubaldo Des Menhies was a winner for the mentions list, after starting at 17/2.

Today we had:

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

No Selections 


Ayr 1.50 Boris The Blade 9/2
Ayr 2.20 Grand Dianond 10/1
Ayr 2.50 Kudu Country 3/1

And no returns from the Of Interest picks.

All in all from Christmas Day to New Years morning, we saw a nice 11.5pts of profit, and many subscribers have benefitted too from our "of interest" picks going in at regular intervals too, some at very good prices (unfortunately not backed by us we hasten to add!).

A cracking end to 2012 and we'll be back soon with a look at December as a whole.
