One Friday success, Gaz napping his 3rd winner of the week - well done. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Cracking Charlie Hall. I was a big fan of Ahoy Senor last year and am hopeful he improves a lump this year, though I thought it interesting that Scu said on Thursday that he'd run here and then in the Many Clouds, which should tell them 'if he's a Gold Cup horse or if we should take the handicap route'. Now maybe Scu is trying to resist praising the horse to the heavens as he did last season, but that's a pretty downbeat comment and it made me think. I'll sit that one out tomorrow.
My substitute nap is Sheriff Garrett in the 5.20
Molly Ollys Wishes wins for the nap in a fine race 15/8
NAP 3.15 Ascot - Major Dundee
Migration - 16.33 Newmarket
A bunch of interesting races today - looking forward to seeing Goshen.
My nap yesterday ran a stinker - had been backed as well. Hopefully Molly Ollys Wishes in the wetherby 2.25 can put up a better show. Hot from my tracker straight to the page that one...
I'm another Ahoy Senor fan and got stuck in a couple of days back when he wasn't fav. To a lesser extent I've just done Goshen at 6/4 which is way too big in my book. I recall the post race talk with Jamie when he got off him after the race at Lingfield last year. I think he was going to hair dryer him when he got him mano y mano back in the stable. Great stuff, always a thrill. For the
Nap Ascot 1400 Washington
mainly because he could have been overlooked in the betting.
It's almost November and Venetia has her horse box back from the garage and has sent a couple to Ascot which may be her fav course and where she had a strike rate of about 28% last season. Frero Bamboo looks her best chance of the pair.
Lucidity E/W at Newm in 1.38 is the NAP (well more long shot).
Looking forward to watching Ahoy Senor...served me well last season....but todays EW Nap is Good Boy Bobby 15:15 Ascot....also the name of our home muttley who is mostly good....he will get confused at shouts of go on Bobby at the TV.
16.10 Wetherby - Somekindofstar
Anyharminasking in the 14:05 at Ascot
NAP Regal Encore 3.15 Ascot. AJ, RP and JP to work the magic, down to a rating of 136, must be due a win!!
Claras Soldier 5.03 Ascot
Broomfield burg 2.05A.
Ropey Guest 3.23 Newmarket is the win nap,although looking at his record he has more chance of getting placed but I am hoping everything falls into place for him today.Well done Gaz with your winner yesterday.
Sue Smith's having a low key start to the season and I wonder if Joke Dancer can give her a boost at Ascot in the 2.40. He's her first runner there for over 5 years (she is 1 from 8 at the track). Tom Cannon has his first ride for the yard. The horse is hardly a winning machine, but he's the best I've got against EGS and is the nap.
Coventry. 15.28. Galway.
By Galileo out of an Irish Oaks winner an FB to US Army Ranger he was actually never bred to run in the Coventry so Sue used up a perfectly good name.
