Speedy winner

A profitable weekend, thanks to today's emphatic winner of the feature race at Towcester, Speedy Bruere, our only selection of the day.

Similarly yesterday we had just the one selection, though not the same result. We had:

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

4.30         Chepstow              Autumn Haze               1pt                          12/1 Bet365/Lads/BetVictor/PP/Totesport/Boyles/BetFred/SportingBet/Bluesq


2.10 Chepstow De La Bech 4/1 & Okafranca 20/1
2.40 Kempton Theatre Guide 7/1
3.55 Chepstow Captain Sharpe 14/1
4.25 Kempton Gormanstown Cuckoo 14/1

Autumn Haze went off at 12/1 but unfortunately a big mistake at the third completely halted his rhythm, with Christian Williams doing well to stay in the saddle, losing his irons in the process. He never looked like getting back involved after that and may be one for another day.

De La Bech ran best of the mentions, finishing second after not being helped by a poor jump at the last.

On to today and we had:

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

3.25         Towcester            Speedy Bruere              1pt                           4/1 Bet365/Coral/PP


2.50 Towcester Lady Romanza 7/1
3.15 Fontwell Time To Think 7/2
3.25 Towcester Handsome Buddy 14/1
4.00 Towcester Top Benefit 11/1
4.30 Towcester Ballyhilty Bridge 6/1
5.20 Fontwell Alfie Alexander 12/1

Speedy Bruere won in France before today and was heavily backed this morning, though was allowed to drift during the day, mainly thanks to support for one or two others, before being backed in again on course to 11/2. I bet connections couldn't believe the SP, and it was good for us too with bog in play. He always travelled strongly and was never in danger of losing after jumping into the lead two out. He ended up winning eased down, obviously nicely ahead of the handicapper and a nice pay-day for all concerned, great stuff.

Time To Think won for the of interest horses (4/1sp).

Summary of Results:

23rd February 2013:

Autumn Haze, PU/13, 12/1 --- 12/1

24th February 2013:

Speedy Bruere, 1st/10, 4/1 --- 11/2

We're nicely up for the month and look nigh-on certain to register our third profitable month out of four since coming back after our Autumn break last year with our slightly more selective selection process. There's a lot to be said for forcing through profits by sheer number of selections, but we're comfortable with how things are going at the moment in terms of trying to select quality over quantity. The Of Interest mentions we feel is going well, in as much as for those keen for a bit more action, can have it should they wish.
