Opening after some problems. Will update soon
Greg Wood's Wokingham preview on the G is repeating itself millions of times. It's good, but not that good.
And every time it's Blackrod that wins.
A glitch in their system from 16:28 went on until at least 17:00. Bizarre.
Charlie Uberalles 16:07 Perth Won 4/1
Broome puts the hard into Hardwick. A man amongst boys. And Ryan got the tactics spot on once again. He's been on a different level all week.
Noble truth won 4/1.
Nice start for a luck 15….probably downhill from now
Unlucky with Reshoun
@Alan I do hope that was an e.w. Lucky 15.
Antiphon - 17.09 Newmarket
Finn's Charm 2.30 Ascot
Samburu Ascot 15.05.
The run of Nature Strip earlier in week suggests Home Affairs is a good nap, RA (4.20)
Master Miliner is the ew nap in the last at Ascot.
Blackrod nap 5.0A for me too.
Home affairs nap (16:40, royal Ascot)
Charlie Uberalles 16:07 Perth Nap
Happy days Jonathon, well done indeed. For me its Bookies 2 Me 1 and a draw yesterday. Not a good day for Holly so far. Glen Shiel pulled and Trushan will likely go the same way. My northern hope today has to be
RA 1700 Blackrod
and I might have a saver on Commanche Falls as he seems to like a cavalry charge.
6.10 Ascot - Falcon Eight
Noble truth 3.05RA. Opposing Jonathan might be silly considering his RA form. Mind you, mines not too shabby with 6 wins, 2 places & 2 placed stakes back from Skybet. Also had 5 other winners I backed this week, relief to a very average period, yet how many winning naps did I put up this week - 1!
Congratulations Jonathan, good luck for the final day.
NAP is Alcohol Free, 4.20 Ascot
As I mentioned earlier this week I think I first went to RA on Hunt Cup day in 1979 and went every year until 1990. Back in those days the first race was The Jersey Stakes. I never once backed the winner. Since betting has become available to me in around 2017 I still have not backed the winner of that race. I need that winner and am napping Star Girls Aalmal to break my duck. (15:05).
This has been my best ever RA with 9/25 plus a money back for getting placed in a TVG bonus race. The stewards denied me a 10th winner, and I denied myself 2 more by changing my mind just before the off.
Tacarib Bay has come up on my tracker to oppose my nap. Only had a few trackers run at RA, but Latin Lover won, and Coltrane turned out to be a Cracker of a Tracker.
I may back every horse in the Jersey to ensure I don't go to my urn never having backed the winner.
So far me 4, TVG betting site 0, although that was only because of my last minute winner yesterday.
@Jonathan Dawe Jonathan, I hope you will live long enough to just back one Horse in the Jersey Stakes without having to back all of them.
I think it is a horrible race.
I have never understood Trainers running in competitive G3s with so many unknowns. Find something straightforward for your Horse.
I don't like to bet on Festival Racing as there are easier pickings elsewhere but like you seem to be having a good RA which I find amazing.
I definitely don't have 9/25 but have a few long placed Horses. Like you 2 hit the crossbar but no goal.
Of course I can evidence my success with a 14/1 winner.
Some dystopian Names at RA.
In the 17.00. there is Mr.Wagyu. Why call a Horse after Prime Meat.
In the same Race there is Quarantine Dreams which we are all tired.
In the following Race at 17.35.there is a Horse called Missed The Cut who.I predict will be gelded.
My nap is Aldous Huxley in that Race as whilst I keep meaning to read the Book he predicted an optimistic future.
