Naps Table Update
Two winners on Friday - David with Luke at 8/13, and Robicheaux 7 with a cracking EW nap in Third WInd. Well done, both.
If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
I found it very tough again today. Venetia's been brilliant, eh? Hard to say she is finally blooming after so long, but her training philosophy - much of which is built around the horses being outside in each other's company - seems to be paying massive dividends now. I'll bet there will be owners considering a change of trainer soon.
Venitia places again…how have I still not learnt.
I thought A plus Tard looked great at Haydock, but never took a good price and didn't like the odds today - was happy with Minella Indo at double the price, but in the back of my mind (backing a few EW at big prices), I thought if A Plus Tard wins I'll have a big smile on my face anyway. And I do!!
Zambella EW 4.50
Rewired won 5/6. Would also love to see Knight salute win...
Nap Chantry House
and I want Knight Salute to win!
Tornado Flyer each way in the 15:30 at Cheltenham,
I Like to Move It 2.10C for me.
I had a good day yesterday with Third Wind and Flooring Porter, plus 5 placed EW - but it would have been much better if Thyme Hill won! On the day, I had it doubled with Third Win and an AP bet with Edwardstone and Constitution Hill, still an OK profit though :P
Galvin - 15.30 C
Mount Ida (16:50)
Porticello (ew) - 13.30 Cheltenham
On a lucinda theme Douglas talking at Donny 2.00 is todays nap
Broomfield Burg is the nap,well done yesterdays winners,that was a lovely nap Robicheaux7.
Stag Horn in the 2.50 Cheltenham. Hopefully Knight Salute runs, have a place treble with the aforementioned 2 and Broomfield Burg. Best of luck to all with their bets!
Pink Legend 4.50 Cheltenham
Tax for Max, ew nap. 2.10.
Venetia understands the Cheltenham actually favours horses who are ridden positively, it's very hard to make up ground turning in if somethings been given an easy time of it on the front end . The way her 2 in the last ran was testament to her tactical nous.
I was tearing my hair out watching Flooring Partner stacking them up at the top of the hill ,they were like sardines in a can ,all travelling but with nowhere to go. Mud and crap coming back into their faces ,horses as well as jocks, but nobody pushed up to take the winner on. I like Tom OBrien but Dickie would have pushed Thyme Hill up on the inside of Flooring Partner and worried him instead of waiting ,and waiting some more. Theres been some bloody awful race riding this week yet ITVs coverage fails to cover that side of things. They have Ruby sat in his cupboard who could do that but seem to want to continue the dumbing down mantra full on. As for the paddock comments pre race ,I give up . What Cummani is doing there beats me ,she wouldn't know a NH horse if it kicked her hat off .
Milton's walking the course before deciding if Knights Salute will take his chance today.
On a positive note ,the first Swallow of the year dropped into Cheyne on Portland Bill yesterday ,springs on it's way hopefully.
I am a thicko and need to be spoon fed.
What does Horses being outside in each other's company mean?
It looks like everyone on this Forum is having a bad Cheltenham and what a surprise. Console Yourselves. This is not the Galway Races. You get some stake money back.
My nap today is in 14.10 named after I am sure are reputable builders but previously named after you know who
I think Colonel Mustard might do it with a blunt weapon but my nap is Faivoir who is trading at big odds.
