The Peoples Nap returns….. Had a lovely few days with the family at a local festival, fun was had by all & I have been keeping up to date with the racing news & Charlie has also been keeping me posted….. Enough of that, lets crack on with the Choices –

PN Result – Split Stakes – Seduce Me- 3rd & Rhoseiger Won SP 9/2…. Cracking end to last week, let’s hope we can keep it going….

No Final Thought today but I will leave you with a few I noted that didn’t make PN Choices – Nathalie & Mama Africa(Thirsk 3.00 & 4.30) Also I cannot let this go by without mentioning the return of Almanzor in Deauville at 3.00 & the fantastic Brametot, also at Deauvill 3.45….. Now over to Charlie ….

Cheers Rich, nice to have you back from your family time, anyway getting back on track let’s recap on Monday’s performance.

Double Reflection – Was a disappointing 7th and was a loss.

Yes You – Could only manage 3rd but was still a loss.

Duncan Of Scotland -Could only manage 3rd and was another loss.

Another frustrating day with all 3 selections losing, hopefully get back on track with Tuesday’s Selections listed below.

Charlie’s Selections



Etienne Gerrard – Had a poor start to the season but was a good 2nd at Redcar on latest turf start. Was poor at Newcastle last time out but All weather is not a favourable a surface.

Win Advised


Kyllang Rock -Won at Nottingham before placing 2nd twice, first of those was at York and the 2nd was at Haydock all over 5f. Then posted two poor efforts at York and Goodwood also over 5f. The cheekpieces have been removed again and if not missing the break this time should be hard to beat.

Win Advised


Murad Khan – Ran well after being gelded and won at Windsor over 1m, but then ran poorly at Goodwood next time. Is a previous course and distance winner and is still progressive enough to get involved here.

Win Advised


Well there you have it another packed blog post with plenty to keep you busy until races start. The People’s Nap Vote result will be updated when voting closes.

In the meantime please remember to keep stakes small and hopefully end the day with a bit of profit.

…Good Luck…
