Results Update

We hope you're well. Sadly no winners to report from our four selections since the weather began to improve and we're in the midst of a pretty frustrating run since the turn of the year. We're extremely confident things will turn around soon enough however, and we look forward to that being the case.

While our first actual selection since our last update was on the 30th January, there were two days of racing amidst a weather-decimated period and we had a few "of interest" horses to briefly look at.

23rd January:

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


1.10 Ayr Shanroe Secret 25/1
2.40 Ayr Top Secret 7/4 & Agglestone Rock 10/1
3.40 Ayr Too Cool To Fool 7/1

A nice winner among the "of interest" picks here with Too Cool To Fool winning at a massive 12/1 at SP

26th January:

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


12.40 Cheltenham Renard Dirlande 8/1
2.45 Leopardstown Canaly 9/1
4.10 Cheltenham Mr Watson 11/4

Mr Watson was a winner for the mentions, at an SP of 11/4.

Another few days of without NH racing followed before we were finally back in action on the 30th January:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.00         Leicester              Amroth Bay                   1pt                          6/1 Coral/PaddyPower/Stan James/SkyBet/Bluesq 13/2 SportingBet
4.30         Leiecester             Refusal                          1pt                          9/2 Hills/BetVictor/Boyles/Skybet/Bluesq


2.00 Leicester Seventh Hussar 12/1
2.40 Ludlow Egretta Island 12/1

Amroth Bay went off at 15/2 and ran well enough for a long way before fading towards the end to finish well beaten,

Refusal started at 4/1 and was being urged along all too early before staying on towards the end and actually wasn't beaten that far in the end, finishing in an unplaced third.

Of the mentions, Seventh Hussar ran a huge race in finishing second, going off at 14/1 and going down by a rapidly diminishing 3/4 length, despite the winner coming right over to the rail and forcing him to check his run 100yds from home.

We had a big priced selection to finish January:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
2.20         Towcester             Ruby Crown                1pt                           16/1 generally 18/1 Coral/BetVictor


Wincanton 2.40 Politeo 9/2 Milarrow 7/1
Towcester 3.20 Viva Steve 5/1

Ruby Crown went off at 16/1 and ran ok for long enough but ended well beaten.

Of the "Of Interest" mentions, in the 2.40, Politeo won with Milarrow into second, paying a nice £44.70 on the exacta for those who had a dabble at that (not us, incidentally..) Politeo won at 11/2 SP by eight lengths.

Viva Steve  came second

On 1st February we had:

TIME     COURSE            SELECTION              0.5pt/1pt/2pt win    Bookmaker(s) / Price(s)
3.55         Catterick               Papa Caruso                1pt                          7/1 Bet365/Hills/PaddyPower/Totesport&others


3.55 Catterick Categorical 7/2

Papa Caruso ran a good race, touching nearly 7/4 in running after starting at 13/2, but couldn't hold off the challengers in the end and faded a touch towards the end to finish third.

Categorial ran unplaced.

Then today, 2nd February we had:

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


1.00 Wetherby Billy Twyford 11/2
3.45 Ffos Las Jumps Road 9/1
4.10 Sandown Oscar Davy 5/1
4.20 Ffos Las Bygones Sovereign 11/1

Of the "Of Interest" horses, Billy Twyford just got up on the line to win at an SP of 7/1, continuing a very good recent run for the mention horses.

Here's to this improving weather sticking around leading to a good week of action to come.

All the best,

Sam & The Market Examiner team
