Belated Happy 2013 - One To Watch

Decided to give racing a miss yesterday and go to watch my local team Wigan play Manchester Utd. To say play would be an understatement as they were totally outclassed and being a neutral I could really appreciate the skill and class that some of the Utd players possess and why in the case of Robin van Persie £24m looks money well spent. 
Yesterday on the racing front there was nothing strong enough for a bet. Today there is one meeting at Ayr and one horse of of interest but not an official bet as I believe the favourite will be difficult to beat.

Ayr 12.50 Our Joey (Backed in from 5/1 early in the morning to 6/4F and ran out at 2nd last when probably beat. One to keep on the side of when stepped up in trip)
Dual bumper winner who should have won on his novice hurdle debut when falling at second last. Outclassed at Cheltenham last time but didn't run as bad as finishing position would suggest. Trip may be a bit short today but can put jumping experience to good use, although I believe the favourite Halo Moon will be difficult to beat after turning over a well regarded sort from the Pipe stable on his debut. 

2012 Post Year Review

A review for 2012 will be posted later in the week but my initial thought are that I should have done better and will aim to put this right in 2013.
