Two returns on Friday - well done. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
There's a pretty shocking report in The New Yorker on Sheikh Mohammed and his daughters. It's more than racing that turns a blind eye to his crimes.
It is true that you get what you pay for, but equally you sometimes pay far more than you get. Hurricane Fly's half brother Scandisk Park looked pretty moderate in that Haydock bumper. He cost the Holdens 200k as a 3yo store, was revved up before his point debut, disappointed again and then failed to sell for his reserve at auction. So they took him home and put him on the ferry to Henderson's to try the luck there. It could be difficult to recoup their money. Meanwhile the Bowen team knew what they had and backed him accordingly.
Parisencore each way in the 15:15 at Haydock Park
Finding this month very tough.
Lordship. Haydock 5.35, is todays hopeful selection.
I just don't what would make someone call a Horse Nurburgring who runs in the 16.05 at Navan.
I think that Formula 1 track is now off the Calendar as it was a seriel death trap and its glamour for Petrol Heads was the sight of cars smashing in to another hard object.
Later on there is a Horse called Lariat.
I know the names of the Horses in the TH Syndicate are embarrassing but at least not sick.
Han solo berger nott 3.40 each way
The Swinton has not been particularly productive for me. I took 16s on Black Poppy last night and can see some other idiots thought it an ok bet, so there's one to avoid. One of my cliff horses
Nap Hay 1445 Commanche Falls
could get loose on the front of a small field at a front runners track so 10s is a very generous price.
NAP Nibiru 3.15 Haydock.
Ascot 2.40 - Admiral D (each way).
I was torn between this fella, Accidental Agent and Zip - 1/10 that I've picked the wrong one.
That article on the Sheikh: Thomas Piketty is convinced that many countries in the developed world are reverting to feudalism. Some parts of the world have yet to graduate from it.
I think it will be a good day for Tom Marquand at Haydock and hopefully Lordship in the 17.35 can top it off.
Keep getting drawn to Accidental Agent, 6lb lower than last year..Not much faith in ATR Predictor but they have put in the top 3...14:40 Ascot and that is my EW Nap
Hurricane Ali - 15.15 Haydock
Safe Voyage 2.40 Ascot is an OAP nap for today,well done yesterdays's winners.
The law in this world is only for the masses, the elite can do what they want.
Timeless melody 2.05A.
2.40 ascot Darkness ew
Another Reminder to Tangovictoriaindia that Je T'ai Porte won the the 16.45 at Clonmel on 11/05/2023 who I napped with a SP of 4/1.
My nap today is Watermelon Sugar. e.w. 13. 50 Lingfield Park.
Richard Brautigan is possibly my favourite Author but there are creepy reasons I got in to him in the first place which you don't need to know about.
