Sorry Leo, but I'm with you on Navello 6.40 (though am worried about Rum Cocktail)
Aryaah won 13/8.
Much obliged, Quai. It's been something of trying weekend; I think that's the first time I've completely forgotten to open the thread. Thanks again.
Hi Joe, Saw your Post on the John Crace article. Very moving. As a fellow traveler in the wasteland( i think a few of us here are) i hope the path stays clearer for you in the coming weeks and months.
@David That's kind of you David, and very much appreciated. All the best.
Nap 6.40 Windsor Navello
Finest view nap (15:30)
i'll try Kilbary leader ludlow 4.35 though nap wise im on a very poor run.....
At the risk of appearing to be speaking through my pocket, I note that 2 of our most dependable trainers 'up 'ere int North' seem to have hit a rough patch. Tim Easterby was 1 from 61 last week though he did have some good placed runners, but Dods, a trainer on who I often rely for horses over shorter distances is 0 from 25 with just 3 placed. Both included some of their better horses.
Nap 1810 Windsor Flamenco Fan
for another trainer who has had a higher strike rate earlier but had only 10 runners last week, 1 winner and that was ridden by Frank!
We can always rely on the Johnston’s and O’Meara - currently operating at 43% RTF.
Sometimes I lose the days of the week but as there is Racing at Roscommon it must be Monday.
Schiele. 16.30. This is the third time I napped him without success.
Anythingtoday 7.10 Windsor is the nap.
After yesterday in the Premiership, how about City Escape in the same race at "Wolves" (!), not to mention King of the Kippax, 14.20 at Leicester? (Kippax Street was a stand at City's old Maine Road ground).
@QuaiDB does lightning strike twice?
If I was in your shoes I would withhold having a bet for the next week.
Rest on your Laurels.
@el gran senor Thank you elgransenor, for your wise counsel. There is also Singing the Blues at 40-1 at Windsor. One half suspects that the events of yesterday afternoon were written by a soap opera scriptwriter intent on squeezing as much drama as possible into the game, wringing out the emotions of the massed thousands in the grounds (and millions round the world) from highs to lows and vice versa. A manager in tears of joy, another in deep gloom, like Othello, perhaps, denying he was upset. It would be hard to write such stuff and retain credibility, but then there was Real Madrid recently!
@el gran senor Lightening may indeed strike twice in the second at Wolves in the form of Arab Cinder.
