Summary of Results

We hope you're having a good Easter weekend.

High time for our latest results update. It's been a fairly quiet end to the month, with some nice winners among our "of interest" mentions, but not unfortunately for our selections. Still, March has ended nicely in profit, our fourth profitable month in five, and we look forward to April getting going tomorrow.

We start with Friday March 22nd:

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

4.25        Newb                         Ivor's King                         1pt                        8-1 general


5.30 Newb Midnight Prayer 11-2

Ivor's King was very nicely backed, into 9/2 at the off, but set off at seemingly too hot a pace and he ended up fading out of it.

Midnight Prayer came fourth.

There was no turf racing last Saturday but on Sunday there was action, albeit we didn't have a selection - although a couple of interest.

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

No selections


2.55 Wincanton Miss Tenacious 11/2
4.25 Wincanton Shuil Royale 7/2

And both these of interest mentions won, at 15/2 and 2/1 respectively. Miss Tenacious was probably fortunate, left in the lead when then most likely winner came down two out. Shuil Royale was really well backed and was a game winner (ironically from the same stable as the faller in Miss Tenacious' race). 

On Monday we had no turf racing, but on Tuesday we were back in action with: 

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

3.40        Fontwell                Peut Etre Sivola             1pt                          6/1 Bet365/Boyles 11/2 Skybet/Bluesq 5/1 generally BOG


2.10 Fontwell Mount Gunnery 4/1
4.10 Fontwell Mistral Reine 6/1
5.10 Fontwell Uknowwhatimeanharry 13/2

Peut Etre Sivola was heavily backed in the morning but drifted to a massive 12/1 at the off, before running a good race, finishing third, losing second close to the line. He was the only horse to really try to lay down a challenge to the easy winner, but couldn't peg him back. 

None of the mentions won, with Mistral Reine coming closest, finishing second at 7/2.

On Wednesday we had:

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

2.50         Wetherby             Global Flyer                   1pt                         8/1 Hills/Bet365/Boyles/Bluesq/SkyBet


2.20 Wetherby Potomac 4/1

Global Flyer's effort was disappointing, finishing a well beaten 4th after being nicely supported into 11/2.

Potomac was unplaced.

Onto Thursday and we had no selections, but two of interest:

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


2.20 Ffos Las Pension Plan 7/1
5.15 Ludlow Silver Commander 7/1

Pension Plan was really well backed going off at 3/1 and won easily while Silver Commander would have gone mighty close had he not stumbled badly at the last when sharing the lead, after going off at 5/1. He finished third. 

No racing of course on Good Friday and then we've had a couple at Musselburgh this weekend.

On Saturday we had:

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

4.10         Musselbugh          Hawdyerwheesht           1pt                          6/1 Coral/BetVictor/Totesport/Bluesq


2.10 Newton Abbot Laflamedeglorie 7/1
2.25 Musselburgh Excel Bolt 11/4
3.00 Musselburgh Kingsgate Choice 9/2
3.40 Doncaster The Welsh Wizard 9/4
3.55 Newton Abbot Keku Buku 4/1
4.20 Carlisle Solis 10/1

Hawdyerwheesht didn't look the most straight forward of rides, a bit unbalanced and a bad stumble half way round didn't help, but he was still there pitching as things got serious but just didn't seem to get home, after going off at 6/1.

A poor day for the mentions here, drawing a blank in terms of winners.

And then today, Sunday we went back to Musselburgh where there was a good support for a 4yo having his first flat turf start.

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

4.20         Musselburgh         Hell Hath No Fury         1pt                         6/1 generally BOG


2.10 Towcester Tracking Time 11/2

Hell Hath No Fury went off at 11/2 and was up there until they turned for home but was readily put in his place, finishing well beaten in fourth.

Tracking Time was going along well enough until he unseated his rider at the 5th after being nicely backed into 7/2.

Summary of Results 

Friday March 22nd 2013

Ivor's King, 7th/9,  8/1 --- 9/2

Tuesday March 26th

Peut Etre Sivola, 3rd/8, 6/1 --- 12/1

Wednesday March 27th

Global Flyer, 4th/8, 8/1 --- 11/2

Saturday March 30th

Hawdyerwheesht, 5th/8, 6/1 --- 11/2

Sunday March 31st 

Hell Hath No Fury, 4th/5, 6/1 --- 11/2

It all means that March ends up +19pts in the end, from 25 selections. We'd certainly take that each month if offered and we'll be doing our best to keep it going through April.
