Asy nap is a NR I now going for Champagne Auction as he is going down to post in the 15.35 at Dundalk
Wee Consett ... odd that our lifetime nav systems have taken so many here through that place. My first visit was a drive from Scotland in 1988 to sign Reuben Page up for the SiS service.
Well done Jess Bedi, training her fourth winner under Rules in her short career. Oliver's Island lost out by the minimum distance last week at Lingfield (the furthest Jess has ever travelled a horse from her Teesside base), but gained compensation today at Rasen. Jess has a fine record as a PTP rider in N Yorks and rode work at Rebecca Menzies' and Kevin Ryan's and now as a trainer based at her family's farm she is one to watch.
Chelm 6pm How impressive
I have no clue from his breeding as to the naming of Meatloaf, Paul Nicholls' runner in the Wincanton junior bumper. But it has led me to discover a whole world of culinary trivia on Wikipedia, including the fact that the Danish name for meatloaf translates as "mock hare".
The race contains two other horses that recall for me childhood telly watching. Twentyfirstlancer: he's by Churchill; Winston of that ilk served with 17th/21st Lancers at the Battle of Omdurman, where Corporal Jones, later of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard Platoon, also fought with great gallantry against the Mad Mahdi. And then there's Mr Mackay, that dour Presbyterian prison officer engaged in a weekly battle of wits against Fletch in Porridge.
None of this drivel constitutes a tip in any way, shape or form. Especially form.

Kingsmill Gin 2.25 Wincanton is todays nap,well done yesterdays winners.
Good memories from Tom about Consett yesterday. Must admit I used to drive through there in the wee small hours, but that's another story.
Nap Thurles 1442 Foxy Girl
Gerard mentor 12.07MR.
I really enjoyed the Travelogue and Sociopolitical backdrop yesterday.
It must be irksome for Quai des Brumes to see such a generically named favourite in the 15.02 at Thurles called Quais De Paris.
Quel Quai de Paris?
The Third Reserve in that Race is now odds on.
Quais De Paris is my nap.
