A return to winning ways

Just cant get the luck atm , although did have 3 winners on a saturday for first time in ages today , thought id record my bets and might force me not to back the silly ones.
New to forum so ill try my best to keep up with standard.
Dont tend to focus on certain types of races , like maidens more so sometimes , dont like kempton all weather.

5.00 Ffos Las - Sweet Selection 1pt win 4/1 paddy power

Still 8lbs higher than when winning on h/cap debut and was beaten fair and square lto , although ran ok for a fair way in a cl3 h/cap , against the rail, comes off the rail , goes back to rail but doesnt meet anything here of that quality.
Run that was best was when 4th by just under 2l off 75 3 starts back , went wide for a run down the outside and didnt look like it would be a non stayer over this trip and dropping into 0-75 company , might have a chance.
Not the most luxurious of odds but 4/1 is a fair price for a trainer who is 3/13 with his 3yos in handicaps at the track with 3 more places.

3.05 Curragh Pearl Secret 1pt win 16/1 paddy power

Drops into grp2 company after 3 disapointing runs in group 1 company ,albeit ran well in a group 1 at Ascot 4 outings ago , running on well , btn a length with sole power behind that day , although sole power has best h2h record overall.
Has form figs of 2-1 in group 2 races so not a shabby record and last run in group2 resulted in a win
handles soft ground and barron has stated in the past he wouldnt want it really quick so gd-yielding going should be to its liking.
Barron has two over , other entry is in the first race and he had the 4th in this race last year , and british trainers have the best record , winning 9 of last 10 renewals so cause for optimism.

Pearl secret 6th -1
Sweet selection 3rd but never nearer -1

Kind of annoyed as originally picked perceived but didn't have the conviction.

Move onto tomorrow @ -2

2.10 wolves Evacuate Lady 2/1 bet365

Rattled home lto at Chelmsford in the final furlong but ultimately given too much to do , drops back from 10f to an extended mile which shouldn't be an issue , ran well at trip before.
2lb lower in h/cap and jockey takes off 5 so 7lb lower for a hd defeat.
Should be up nearer the pace and can strike on

2.40 wolves Symposium 11/8

Ran with promise on debut when 4th, sent off fav in a race that's worked out ok with the 3rd winning nto , rated 85 and 7th ran ok in subsequent maidens.
Looks first choice on jocks , has a nice enough pedigree, one to beat.

All bets to 1pt level stakes by the way forgot to say

Symposium won well in the end +.38p for the day , -1.62 atm

didnt fancy anything today

3.20 sandown Elm Park 4/5

Short but should win , group winner at 2yo , returned to a 6l defeat when 3rd behind golden horn , last time out a shade disappointing finishing 20l behind that same rival at epsom but not every horse handles that.
Has 8lbs in hand of Gabrial really , gets 4lbs but rated 4lbs higher and that one pretty exposed in comparison.
Balding also has a better record with class 1 runners at sandown than fahey

2.15 Sandown Tiercel 7/2

Debutant looks well bred on paper being a half brother to amralah , winner 2nd start as 2yo but ran well on debut , group 3 winner as a 3yo,half to 2yo french winner eternal on debut , midget won on debut as a 2yo and half brother to 2yo debutant winner Homestretch.
So plenty of optimism on debut for a yard that do well in 2yo maidens at the track.

Mediciman has pulled out so makes this even more appealing imo!

Elm Park won well enough , only 4 runners so not sure what to take from that but can hopefully progress from this , loss of .2 on the day

2.25 Ayr Next Stop 0.5 each-way 10/1

Last seen btn 2lengths in the charity race at doncaster last week , ran on to go 2nd at the finish on the wide outside.
Now returns to handicap company off 68 , lb higher than when beaten 4L at beverley with joe fanning on board on today re-uniting for the 5th time on board.
Fanning 2/13 for nicholls here , and Next Stop ran ok when 4th on only course visit so cause for optimism although might save itself for beverley.

Couple for tonight

5.50 Chelmsford Archimedes win 11/2

Outclassed in listed race at Ascot but did show previous decent form at Bath and Windsor with a poor effort at ling turf sandwiched in between , reached for tongue tie after Lingfield run and won nto.
Bred to like the all weather , has godolphin horse to beat but that doesn't look ahead of its opening mark.

6.00 pontefract Rigolleto win 14/1

Only two places due to typical NR in 8 runner race , hasn't shown anything like it's best form last two runs but went close off a lb higher 3 starts back and has won and placed off higher marks.
Obviously won't reach the dizzy heights of juvenile days but worth a go.

Good luck

sorry its so close to the off , had to get bet on first

6.10 Wolverhampton Under Review 0.5pts e/w 33/1

Hasnt been seen to best effect at 6f the last twice but drop back to 5f should suit and now 7lbs lower than 5L defeat over CD which wasnt a bad race
