Two placed, one winner on Tuesday (good to see Baci back). If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Saint Xavier won at 3/1 today
Some great contributions today from the community 😀
Hullnback won 5/4
I think that column of vehicles going round inside the course at Haydock is the biggest I have seen. I thought it must be President Biden's motorcade, or maybe a satnav diversion. Haydock isn't going to be carbon neutral any time soon.
Nice theory but unfulfilled..
NAP Fortified Bay 3.07 Haydock..........a tad of a longshot but, hey............
Barnard Castle 3.15 Ludlow is the nap,well done yesterdays winners.
Thanks to Harry for passing on some gen about Russell Ross. I'm not surprised by the gamble as he prob needs something like that to fund an operation with so few runners. All Consett means to me is Sadie the Bra Lady. One of life's questions, if you know Consett, an ex-mining community that is really pretty much just a street and whenever I drive through I wonder how such a specialist shop can pay its way there. SWMBO just puts me down as a pervert for my reflections.
Nap Hay 1437 Hullnback
who I reckon at about 2s is a very generous price and on a day of shorties I'm surprised isn't odds on.
15.07 Haydock - Fortified Bay
Loup De Maulde Ludlow 15.15 today, juggled between a few, settled on that...
On the last day of the month I’m going to be Positive (each way) - 14.25 Lingfield
Saint Xavier 3.07H nap
It's usually enjoyable to watch these Veteran races and it depends a bit on the horses mood on the day, I think. I think some of these may need the run, and as well as those already mentioned, Sporting Life also make a case for Burbank...
Agree with Harry - if Blaklion doesn't show some enthusiasm, surely earnt a decent retirement.
Syndicate news .
Milton is making " slow progress " his words to me this morning but is out of I/C unit.
He suffered a pulmonary embolism on the flight out to Thailand last week.
LArgent of Tim's runs today , had a set back after his good debut run but is well thought of and was working with SIXFIVESEVEN prior to the Compiegne run. Looks a tricky event on paper but he's being backed.
Real wild pick today Another Emotion 15:07 Hay. Ew Nap. 40/1. Reason I am picking this is on its win at Carlisle last year winning by 9 lengths and leaving most of the rest of the field behind…..now let’s see what happens to the theory…any comments on the choice are welcome.
2.55 Lingfield Kanuhura
Post chaise 1.05H
Some stratospheric prices at Tattersalls. Thought provoking about the nature of horseracing. Perhaps it's always been like this.
NAP: 1.55 Lingfield - Bowman
Yesterday’s 2nd at 9/1 probably ended of any chance of an honourable placing in this month’s contest. So, I’m having to go big with a long shot.
I’ve got 2 in the tracker today at Haydock: Nemean Lion and Djelo. Both were very easy winners on debut and are now upped in grade. Djelo’s mark of 114 looks extremely generous, even with a 7lb penalty.
Three excellent naps yesterday. Congrats.
I had a weird piece of luck whereby Bet 365 gave me a payout on The Big Doyen at Punchestown despite being DQ on the 2 Winner Rule. I then had a payout on Hoodwinker at Deauville who came 5th. I hadn't done enhanced e.w. but by lucky accident didn't know the Betting Rules in that Race.
The 14.05 at Deauville in the Listed Race today is a Catholic Affair with Voice Of Angels, Sistine Madonna, Nano Nagle (a Cork Nun) and Purple Bling all in action.
I am keeping it simple for the last day of the Month.
APOB has wanted for some time either Cyclamen or Engagement Ring to retire as Race Winners despite the ignominy of sending them to Dundalk.
I nap the latter in the 17.00 at Dundalk.
