Just opening for Monday. Will update naps table later.
Shamlaam wins at 9/4
Brian Hughes quietly racks up another four-timer. All in a day's work.
A great jockey and imagine the numbers he would get if he was down South. However, I fully understand why he remains in the Glorious North.
Shamlaam in the 18:00 at Wolves
@Jonathan Dawe a MHEMAS...price is too short...g
@tuforu was too short for me to back it 🙀
Global Agreement won 5/2
Late Again, so from what's left
Nap Car 1555 Grand Turina
with the claimer who knows the horse taking a big chunk off!
Defying all possibilities on form, I nap our own wee filly See The Eagle Fly in the 3.00 Fontwell. I need a miracle.
Bingoo. 16.25. Carlisle.
A shame we won't be seeing Ribble Valley over fences for the first time. He's such a fragile horse but has loads of talent. I hope all is well and we will see him run soon.
After the weekends fare, it's down to earth with a bit of a bump! Mondays NAP will be Antony (which is coincidently my brothers name!) Fontwell 440, some extra places about.
Didn't have any time yesterday to really look at anything, but did find time to put on a thoughtless four-timer (and derivative trebles) on four of the short-odds Leopardstown sorts, who all duly obliged. I would have thought that four Ws on the coupon would have felt more satisfying. Still a win is a win and four wins are four wins.
Anyway. Today. Hidden Dilemma, 15:55 Carlisle. Good course form (though not especially recent), getting a nice amount of weight from the principals, the trainer doesn't send them over from Ireland for fun (v good record from runners in the UK) and I don't think JJ Slevin travels for laughs either.
Hidden Dilemma sums it up nicely with Stu Crawford having two in the field!
Ha, yes, that did worry me. And Hughes booked for the other. We'll see I suppose.
Neither was the answer! Ah well.
Cilaos Glace in 1.50F is my nap
Kotmask nap (13:15)
Season In The Sun - 15.35 Fontwell (nap)
Gonna oppose Alan in 2.10C & go with Malpas, sure I'll regret it...
Mordred winning over at St.Moritz yesterday was interesting , not least because the race was due to be run over 1800 metres but was reduced to a 4f sprint. When he was at Hannons he was not quick ,and hes not got any quicker with age either.
@Dilton They woudn't even make that sort of course distance change at Huntingdon or some of your other Bete Noires!
The oddest race meeting I've been too was in Lithuania on a frozen lake: the horses pulled trap-like carts, and we consumed vodka and kebabs!
@LukeH Vodka and Kebabs? Could be Hamilton at a holiday meeting!
A few short enough today so im going to go a bit further out with Balkardy in the Fontwell 3.35 - its still round about fav but 9/2 rather than 10/11 or so
Nap 1.00 Carlisle - Skyhill
Franco D'Aumou - 13.15 Fontwell is my nap today
