Winners hard to come by this weekend. Robichaux saved us a wipeout by napping Janidil: well done. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Great to see Shishkin back. I'm pretty sure Nicky would love to try the Gold Cup next; I wonder if he will get his way? I think it's well worth a few different EW doubles with the NRNB offers, picking something in the Ryanair that has at least good EW chance and doubling EW with Shishkin for the Gold Cup. If Shiskin does wait for the Friday, I think Venetia will reroute Funambule Sivola to the Ryanair, for which he looks good EW value to me at 20/1 anyway, all the more so if the fav misses it.
Can anyone enlighten me about that 4.55 race at Punchestown where the winner receives 59 euros and the sixth 2 euros. Is it just a fun event, or has it not been sponsored?
Riggs placed at 28/1.
Looks like the 15:45 at Punchestown is the race to go for. Riggs ew.
I'm siding with Bacio. Champagne platinum, ew nap. Punchestown 2.10.
Hard iron muss 15.55.
Some disappointing fields today. Particularly chases
According to The Sporting Life Dalamoi just won the one runner race 13:30 Newbury at odds of 11/4...ouch...missed that
I'd an awful day on Saturday and when I looked again at the results the only one I regretted not backing was Shishkin. The week was good so I just put Saturday down to a bad day at the office.
Nap Punch 1410 Diol Ker
Red Missile 15:55 Muss Nap
I Like To Move It got the fast-run race he needs in the Kingwell yesterday. But what the eff was Bryony Frost playing at when setting such crazy fractions on Knappers Hill?
Bluebell Diva - 15.45 Punchestown
Hard iron 3.55M.
Interesting piece in this article about the Homer Scott affair in Ireland. Looks as if the scales of justice are somewhat weighted...
Spyglass Hill 3.45 Punchestown
NAP 3.45 Punchestown - Bodhisattva
One of the lines in this song are particularly apposite given this month's napping
