Charlie had no luck with just 1 place, while the 3 Peoples Nap Choices finished 2nd, Void & 1st…… I will explain later…. Let’s get down to business –
Peoples Nap Choices –
Thirsk – Good
3.00 – Selling Stakes – Class 6 – 2YO Only – 7f
Give Em A Clump – Modest form 1st couple of starts earlier this season, had a small break & returned a 5 length 3rd, followed with a 1/2 length 2nd in a Class 6 claimer last time out, beaten by re opposing Faradays Spark, who is now 6Lb heavier – 6/5
4.30 – Handicap – Class 2 – 3YO Only – 1m
Commander – 8th on debut last season, returned a neck 2nd back in April. Finally got head in front last time out at Doncaster in a class 5 maiden by a head over 1m, that race has yielded 2 winners & now runs in 1st time blinkers – 2/1
Kempton(AW) – Standard
7.40 – Handicap – Class 3 – 1m 4f
Gibbs Hill – 3 places & 1 win form 4 runs last season. Returned this season winning at Wolverhampton in a class 3 handicap over 1m 4f, before missing the break at York over 1m 4f to finish 6 & 1/2 length 3rd to Lord Yeats, who has since won a Class 1 Listed contest – 11/8
Peoples Nap Result(Tuesday) – Weekend Offender – Jockey failed to remove the hood in time, lost all chance.
Harlequin Rose – 2nd beaten a short head and is a loss
Munfallet – 6th and was another loss
Monologue – Non Runner meaning bet was void
. Not the day I had planned if I’m honest and I’m definitely not happy with the way some of my selections have ran the last couple of days. Have had a look at Wednesday’s races and nothing caught my eye so I’m not going to force a bet from races I’m not 100% on. Now back to Rich and his explanation on his void bet today on Weekend Offender.
Re Void Bet – My bookmaker, refunded my stake on Weekend Offender, so as far as I am concerned, as my bet was void, it’s a no bet situation. Certain bookmakers do this to keep punters sweet, while others, maintain that as the horse has started the race then it’s a fair bet. It’s difficult to say really, if the horse refused then, in my opinion it is a NO Bet & bet should be void. Jockey error, is a grey area. I have seen all opinions on social media, many are fair, some are just trying to get a reaction. But as we all place the bet….. We take our chance!
Well it’s just the People’s Nap for Wednesday and myself and Rich wish you all good luck with your bets.
Thanks again for the continued support we appreciate it….
