Two profitable selections on Thursday: well done. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
As I missed some races today, been catching up on replays, and it looks like there's something very odd about the Racing Post timing on the 4.20 at Ascot...
According to them, Orazio won this 6f race, 10 seconds faster than the 5f race earlier! Not got the stopwatch out, but it seems more like about 1 min 10s than the 55s listed! And according to them, 24s faster than the 6f at 4.40. Looked a good performance, but not THAT good :P
Docklands won at evens. 7 to 4 last night. More to come from it I think.
I don't know if this counts...16 runner H'cap..Law of the Sea 4h 40/1
Docklands Ascot 5.20
Al Rufaa 1.30 CH nap
Most of my naps in the past couple of months seem to have stuttered their way around the racecourse, including one who jumped the last at Sandown 4 lengths clear before coming to a dead stop before running on again to finish 2nd.
Call My Bluff in the 3:15 at Chester. However, because of my Chester rule, he will be racing unencumbered by my money.
Another one for the Chester Cup; Vino Victrix. Give it a couple of hours and we’ll have half the field covered on here!
Land Of Winter 4.55 Chester is today's nap.Well done yesterdays winners.
NAP Almuhit 3.15 Chester.
Law of the Sea 15:15 Chester EW Nap
The Chester Cup has a history of interesting events. I'm thinking back to the like of the Ramsdens here and probably reading way too much into this but the fav missed out by 1 and who runs one of the topweights? So
Nap Chester 1515 Zoffee
it would make a good story anyway
Two Brothers - 16.20 Chester
Chester 1.30 - Heat Of The Moment (each way)
'Highly tried' is a label you might attach to this filly. I’m usually three strikes and you’re out when it comes to tracker horses, but I’m going to persevere with this one. While Chester from a wide draw on heavy isn’t ideal, she might squeak a place at a price
Je T'ai Porte won the 16.45 at Clonmel yesterday at a tidy 4/1 and deserves recognition.
That was my my nap yesterday.
My nap today is The Grand Visir.
Definitely not the same logic as Robicheaux7 as I am not sure a half Tonne animal experiences a 6 pound difference on it's back.
I appreciate there are fine margins at this level of sport
I am napping The Grand Visir e.w. because I often see his name on a Racecard.
I'll chance my arm with The Grand Visr in the Chester Cup.
6 lbs lower, than when he was 2nd two years ago.
