Ballybrowney Walk  16.05 Leopardstown 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Fell - soon chased leaders, 4th after 3rd, closed after 3 out and soon 2nd, travelling smoothly on stand's side straight, led before last where fell

Arctic Road 14.00 Newcastle 1 Pt Win @ 3\1 (bog)

Irish point winner who delivered on previous promise when getting the better of another lightly-raced sort at Ayr recently and looks the type to go on improving, so sure to go well again.

Christmas In USA 15.55 Carlisle 1 Pt Win @ Evs (bog)

Finally came good at the 27th time of asking when making all at Ayr (2m) 10 days ago. Bold bid assured under a penalty if turning up in similar form. 

Golden Spread 17.15 Thurles 1 Pt Win @ 9\4 (bog)

Twice-raced maiden. 11/4, second of 9 in bumper at Down Royal (16f, good to soft) 37 days ago. Should prove hard to beat faced with a much simpler task than last time.

Warriors Valley 15.15 Lingfield 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

C&D winner. Latest win at Southwell in January. Seventh of 11 in handicap (3/1) at Wolverhampton (5.1f) 11 days ago. Type to bounce back quickly and should be bang there. 

Vhagar 17.45 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Fairly useful gelding. C&D winner. Winner here in November. Creditable third of 9 in nursery at this C&D (11/4) 84 days ago. Shortlist material.

Derriana Spirit 15.55 Ayr 1 Pt Win @ Evs (bog)

Bumper winner who has improved with each run over hurdles, taking her tally to 2 from 3 with a ready success at Newcastle 53 days ago. Opening mark of 115 looks potentially lenient. 

Sizing Coal 16.50 Gowran park 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Useful chaser. 9/1, creditable second of 11 in hunter chase at Down Royal (22f, good to soft). Bolted up in a good time between the flags since, so looks to hold leading claims back under Rules.

Bahama Moon 16.30 Warwick 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Fairly useful on the Flat and definitely has a race in him in this sphere. Has had a wind operation which might enable him to get the job done now. 

Chacun Pour Soi 14.40 Naas 1 Pt Win @ Evns (bog)

Fairly useful form over jumps in France in 2015/16, successful over hurdles and third in 17f maiden chase (good form). Shouldn't want for fitness starting out in very winnable race.

Myplaceatmidnight 14.20 Plumpton 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Fairly useful bumper winner who improved on opening hurdles exploits to score convincingly at Wincanton in January. Useful efforts in defeat there twice since and sets decent standard back in novice.

With Caution 19.45 Wolves 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Unbeaten after 2 starts, landing the odds in a 7-runner minor event at this C&D 15 days ago, forging clear. Should improve again.

Ulster 17.45 Kempton 1 Pt Win @ 6\5 (bog)

Good start to career, winning pair of 1½m novices here. Further progress when narrowly denied in 14f Wolverhampton handicap 15 days ago. 4 lb rise looks fair given front 2 were 9 lengths clear.

Sideways 15.15 Fakenham 1 Pt WIn @ 13\8 (bog)

Irish point winner who found some improvement for fitting of cheekpieces, successful here and at Sedgefield in January. Respectable efforts since and looks to have further races in him. 

Isosceles 20.45 Dundalk 1 Pt WIn @ 5\2 (bog)

Won 13-runner maiden at this C&D (9/1) 42 days ago. Makes handicap debut. Should have even more to offer.

Mala Beach 16.50 Down Royal 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Smart chaser. C&D winner. Well-beaten eighth of 11 to Presenting Percy in John Mulhern Galmoy Hurdle (28/1) at Gowran (24f, soft) 51 days ago. Switches from hurdles to chase.

Good claims on the pick of his efforts from earlier in the season having walked over at Sedgefield a fortnight ago after a wind operation. 

Christopher Robin 13.45 Wexford 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Fairly useful Flat winner. Thrice-raced maiden over hurdles. 7/2, thirteenth of 20 in juvenile hurdle at Navan (16f, soft) 15 days ago. Big player judged on effort at Gowran on penultimate start.

Started this two years ago today for a little bit of fun after the battle between GB and Ireland at Cheltenham. Little did I realise that I would still be in profit 2 years later. 

Overall :

5c8ed4c2c958c_CCCEndofYear2.JPG.5c52ca75bbea58acce6b280d2494efee.JPG

Well looking at the results GB are starting to pull away on all counts.

GB having the most wins and a higher strike rate.

Should I be happy with a 2.54% R on I from 1111 bets. ??

Year 2

5c8ed7119c4ee_CCFinalYear2.JPG.61fa6b366e1a66007fa6c74e27a0801c.JPG

Strike rates not bad in both UK and Ire, but Ireland hammered me in Year 2. 

If you are following the doubles we are still ahead. :beereven after a poor year 2.

5c8ed7ea90913_CCDoublesYear2Table.JPG.533ca86de5b3ffeb0254aa20848b98b0.JPG

 

Most consecutive winners overall: GB 6 from 2nd April 2018 and 8th May 2019 - Ire 4 on five occasions - Daily Doubles 3 on 2 occasions

Most consecutive losers overall : GB 11 from 15th August 2018 - Ire 11 from 5th October 2019  - Daily Doubles 27 from 19th Sept. 2018

Highest Price Winner Overall : GB 4\1 Dotted Swiss 3rd April 2018 - Ire 1 @ 9\1 Smokey Joe Joe 6th January 2018 - Daily Doubles 2 @ 15.78 6th & 7th April 2017.

Lets hope for a better Year 3

Grey Atlantic Way 16.15 Exeter 1 Pt Win @ 2\1 (bog)

Irish raider who is still a maiden but best effort yet on return from a break when third at Wincanton 11 days ago, finishing a long way clear with 2 unexposed ones. Has to be taken seriously. 

Milan Native 15.30 Navan 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Promising sort. 1 win from 3 runs this season. 3½ lengths third of 6 to Chosen Mate in Gr 2 hurdle (6/1) at Naas (16f, good) 22 days ago. Significantly up in trip. One to keep on right side.

Ballasalla 16.20 Wetherby 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Left hurdle efforts behind when runner-up on Carlisle chase bow in December. Just denied both starts since and clearly has a handicap in him.
