Early odds saw Drum Valley and Broadway Buffalo take up roughly 50% of market. Decided I'd rather be on the other three plausible contenders at 50%. Drum Valley's penalty and Broadway Buffalo's jumping both off-putting against three decent hurdlers. (Since I put bets on, Knock House has been well-backed and Top Totti has drifted markedly.)
Dutch 12pts - Knock House, Portway Flyer and Top Totti.
A nice start to the season. Got this one spot on and managed 3s on the winner, who looks decent.

Co-choice race. Royal Skies the obvious one. Geraghty's only ride. Put in typically very short. Kiama Bay - 8 years old and quirky, not one for most punters. As good as Royal Skies on known form though. The place price fair, judged by betfair.
6pts ew Kiama Bay 4/1.
Even better. Kiama Bay made all and Royal Skies never got close. Happy with 4/1 also. Put 1pt on Kapstadt late on. I have hardly ever bet at Fakenham before, but am interested in playing more minor tracks this season. Encouraging start.
