Wannes won at sp 5/1 (napepd ew).
Nap Bell Rock EW placed at 16/1 (2nd)
NAP Lucander 3.40 Newmarket.
Zoinnocent ew. Curragh 3.20
Tomorrows Irish Cesarewitch.
I have to say that Master of reality at 66/1 for 7 places, looks very good value to me !
As noted, plenty of winners this month. i don't think I'll be troubling the Judges so will stick to my usual strategy of trying to be in profit at end of month with De Barley Basket ( mr 3.30) in the hope its not too high in the weights .......
I've landed on Bell Rock EW 3.40N for the nap.
I've also backed Kitsune Power EW, and probably would have backed Savvy Victory if the price hadn't evaporated!
Back in 1981 before going to RA on Hunt Cup day I spent several hours carefully studying the form and selected a horse called Braughing trained by Clive Brittain (a shrewd placer of horses in big handicaps) in the Hunt Cup.. Of course it came nowhere. Later that year I went to Newmarket on Cambridgeshire day and Braughing was running in the Cambridgeshire. I obviously had a "I'm not backing that (insert own expletive) nag again" moment. Naturally, Braughing won at odds of 50/1. Why is it I remember my betting disasters so well?
Perotto each way in the 15:40 at Newmarket.
Navagio - 17.05 Curragh
Electrical Storm EW Nap 15:40 New'm
2.05 Haydock - Wannes (each way)
Miles Behind. Fortunately I backed
Nap 1540 Savvy Vicory
last night. I'm having to have a little talk to myself before I go in again on Trillium. Can't see anything but victory. So that could be very expensive!
Over at Haydock, Boardman is out to prove me wrong again. I've made plenty backing him but its not his time of year and I don't rate the form of his 2nd last time. Putting my money where my big fat gob is I've had small ews on Wanees who I fancy and Harrow, a cliff horse.
I'm sure we are all aware Milton has plenty of chances at Rasen today - surprised the fan club are not picking his today. Must be a fair old trek up.
Another clutch of winners selected yesterday, well done. The table makes interesting reading as it shows that even if they don’t select another winner, there are already four people who will show a profit in September, along with a few others not far off it. Great stuff, which I think would better many of the pundits who offer us their daily dose of wisdom in the print media and online.
I’m going to swerve Newmarket today as I never seem to do well at this meeting, although I have backed Perotto (ew to 7 places) in the Cambridgeshire. My selection is Chadlington Lad in the 16.40 at Market Rasen.
Stone Of Destiny 2.40 Haydock is todays nap.Well done yesterdays winners.
Montassib nap (haydock, 14:05)
I have also done Jimi Hendrix on an e.w. trebles coupon but I think this is the second time this week GazP might have jinxed me.
I have done e,w. and not win only but that is not my nap.
It is a confusing Saturday and bad planning. Feast or Famine in the Racing Calendar for someone who feels as self-entitled as me.
How does one juggle Curragh and Newmarket in such a close time frame?
We have lives!
I also have a friend with Puppy Eyes who asked for tips in Listowel and Harry stood up to the plate.
Also Harry posted a fantastic Story about Pentland Hills and we all need a good news story despite our natural cynicism.
Moida liked a smoked single malt to tipple on his winners. I can't remember his tipple. I know it wasn't Laphroaig. I think it was from one of those Scottish Islands near Iceland.
I have backed Paddington in the 13.05 at Curragh because someone may be looking down from above.
I think the APOB hegemony on the Beresford Stakes has to end at some point and why not today?
I have done a saver on Continuous as I going through a phase that I think Japan have hell of a lot to offer European Pedigrees.
My nap is Roaring Gallagher trained by JOB who is rarely out of form.
He is by Roaring Lion. The name is a play on Rory Gallagher who was born in Donegal but bred in Cork. The Electrici Guitarist's Electric Guitarist. He even has a square named after him in Cork City.
I have definitely done him in a double with Jimi Hendrix because how stupid would I feel if that came off?
Jimi hendrix 3.40N.
