Summary of Results

First of all, another mention for our 2012 review, which can be seen here

Now onto our results so far this year, it's been a pretty quiet start to the year, and we went close to a big return today with our 16/1 shot going down by a neck. 

Let's start on New Years' Day

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 was backed into 13/2 so we really got some good value here, but unfortunately Sophie Leech's 8yo was outpaced as things hotted up and he was eased down towards the finish to end up 6th.

Elsewhere, Ubaldo Des Menhies was a winner for the "of interest" mentions at 15/2sp.

On the 2nd January 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

No selections, and Kudu Country's second was the best run from the of interests.

On the 3rd January we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.30         Ayr                       Bene Lad                      1pt                          11/2 Bet365/Hills/BetVictor/Skybet/Boyles/SportingBet 6/1 Totesport/Betfred


3.00 Ayr Seven Is Lucky 3/1
3.30 Ayr Dibdabs 13/2

Bene Lad was quite nicely backed into 9/2 but dropped away to finish well beaten.

There was nothing doing among the of interests.

On January 4th we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.40        Musselburgh         Vodka Moon                 0.5pt                        16/1 Bet365/Skybet/Boyles/SportingBet 20/1 Stan James


1.40 Musselburgh Mystified 8/1
2.40 Musselburgh Syndication 11/2
3.20 Lingfield Picture Post 5/1
3.40 Musselburgh Rev Up Ruby 9/2

Vodka Moon went off at 20/1 and actually ran a lot better race than his 7th position suggests. Checked in running a couple of times as he stayed on, he was allowed to cruise for the final 200yds and was only beaten 8 lengths or so by the potentially decent winner. 

A couple of placed efforts from the of interest mentions.

On January 5th we had:

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

1.05 Newcastle Goodlukin Lucy 15/2 Bunratty 8/1
2.05 Wincanton Willows Saviour 10/1
2.10 Chepstow Shoegazer 4/1
3.00 Sandown Softsong 9/2
3.50 Wincanton Witchesintune 8/1

No selections here, and nothing doing from the of interests apart from a couple of seconds.

On January 6th we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.25          Plumpton            Gilded Age                    1pt                               6/1+generally 13/2 Hills/Totesport 7/1 Stan James


3.30 Plumpton Sherreb 8/1

4.00 Plumpton Rocky Elsom 7/1

Gilded Age went off a solid 9/2 shot and the jock had obviously been told to make sure he was placed as he was ridden all the way to the line to snatch third after being struggling to stay in touch for a while. He was beaten just under ten lengths but was staying on quite nicely towards the end.

Of the of interest mentions, Rocky Elsom won at 6/1sp.

On January 7th we had:

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


1.40 Taunton Di Kaprio 9/1
3.10 Taunton Buckie Boy 8/1
3.40 Taunton Kellystown Lad 9/2

No selections here, and Kellystown Lad ran best of the of interests, coming 2nd at 7/2.

Then today (Tuesday) we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
1.20         Chepstow            Samingarry                    1pt                           14/1 + generally 16/1 Hills/Bet365/Totesport&Others 
3.00         Chepstow            Realta Mo Croi             1pt                           13/2+generally 7/1 BetVictor/Totesport/StanJames/BluesSQ&others


1.00 Leicester Reginaldinho 4/1
4.05 Chepstow Dare To Endeavour 7/1

Samingarry was weak in the markets about 20 minutes before the off, but was actually nibbled back in again and started at 16/1. It was interesting support for a horse who had shown nothing previously, and it was clear to us that a decent run was expected. So it proved, with the Nigel Hawke's 6yo staying on really strongly to almost collar the short priced favourite. His jumping was a bit iffy in places, and he was a bit outpaced as things hotted up, but Samingarry pinged the last and was fair charging home with the apprentice jock on the favourite coasting his mount home. We almost got there but went down by a neck. 

That was a Neil Mulholland winner in that race, and we were on one of his in the 3.00 but Realta Mo Croi really significantly drifted in the markets, going off at 14/1. This horse was kept out the back, made some nice headway before being eased off. Today was clearly not his day in the end, but we wouldn't be surprised if his talented trainer got him winning somewhere soon.

Of the "of interest" mentions, Regaldinho won after going off a very well backed 2/1.
