Right, I think we are now up to date, though my focus on stuff still isn't great so please give me a shout if I have missed something. Apologies to EGS for not picking up that 40/1 EW nap on the 10th, Glounthaune (2nd). But from what I can see it was not 'claimed', though I might have missed the correction over the next couple of days - if so, sorry; it was a cracker of a price, and there have been some good priced naps in the past couple of days - well done, all.

Great to see 2019 Triumph Hurdle hero Pentland Hills back from the wilderness in his first race after two and a half years on the sidelines. Helped by his attractive flat mark (he was bought out of Chris Wall's yard and dropped a further 4lbs during his injury absence), he battled on up the straight bravely to get up on the line. I hope this means he will be back over hurdles this winter. A great thrill for our old friend Moida who had/has a share in the syndicate.
Mutasaabeq 3.35 Newmarket won SP 5/2.
Kolsai won at 10 to 11.
Atlanna. Newcastle 5.45

Having failed to both nap and bet on tracker horse Farhan when he won at 20/1 last time out I feel obliged to nap him this time at Newmarket in the 16:45. More in sorrow than hope.
Dawn Rising won at 100/30
Kolsai in the newmarket 4.10....A bit of a trappy day but i have a hangover so that's clouding my judgment i suspect - i do love red wine but the day after can be tough.....
NAP Outback Flyer, 2.15 Listowel.
Stumbling from one disappointment to another - Pogo a non runner. I'll try
New 1350 Whitebeam
who they thought should be group class but has been missing for a bit so I hope there has been no problems.
Found on won 4/6...
I know tomorrow's meeting at Listowel is 25 hours away and we are meant to take it one day at a time but does anyone have a certainty?
I say this because a friend of mine is going to Listowel and thinks I know something about Horse Racing and I would hate to see the look on her face when I crush her hope.
Art Of Silence seemed appropriate in the opener for me to tip but if someone can bail me out? It doesn't have to be your nap.
Irish Festival is the road to the Poorhouse as nobody seems to know who has been laid out for a Race. Omerta.
