How good was Saturday? Possibly a super Saturday…. From Order of St George to Cracksman to Hydrangea to Librisa Breeze…. Fantastic & while not to forget Persuasive, all worthy winner’s on Champion’s Day. Not to be out shone, The New One returned, again a winner on season return at Ffos Las winning the Welsh Champion Hurdle. With a fine display out battling Clyne, who i’m pretty sure will have another fine season.
So let’s get down to business…. Here are the PN Choices –
Peoples Nap Choices –
Kempton – Good
2.40 – Novice Handicap Chase – Class 4 – 2m 2f
Bach De Clermont – PTP winner before joining Evan Williams last year. Winner of a class 5 maiden hurdle, over 1m 7f by 11 lengths & finished runner up at Southwell in a 1m 7f to Banditry, 3rd place has since won , makes chase debut – 9/2
Leopardstown – Yielding
4.00 – Trigo Stakes – Class 1 Listed – 1m 2f
Cannonball – 1/2 length runner up last time out earlier this month to Detailed at Limerick, 3rd Red Stars has since won a Listed contest. Finished a 1 length 4th the race before here in a Group 3 contest over 1m 4f, drops back in trip – 7/4
Southwell(AW) – Standard
4.40 – Handicap – Class 4 – 5f
Piazon – Had 1 run this term, finishing a 4 & 3/4 length 5th in a Sandown 5f class 5 contest, but has 4 C/D wins & 2 places . Was a runner up in this class back in December beaten by a neck & last win here was in a seller back in December – 4/1
PN Result(Saturday) – Bateel – 2nd, which was no disgrace at all
I shall now pass you over to Charlie for his thoughts on today’s racing & run through Saturday’s results…. See ya for Final Word!
Cheers Rich, let’s kick things off with a recap on Saturday’s results :
Stradivarius -placed 3rd advised eachway at 8-1
The Tin Man -finished 5th and was a loss.
Desque De Lisle – Was declared a non runner stake returned.
Just a small eachway to cheer about as Stradivarius finished 3rd. With only 3 cards today nothing stands out so it’s a no bet day for me, good luck if your having a punt today. I will pass you over to Rich now for the Final Word.
Final Word –
As I have mentioned at the start of this post, it was a fantastic day of racing & although results didn’t go our way, we are not to down hearted, always onwards & Upwards here.
It looks as though Aiden O’Brien will have another good one on his hands next season, with James Cook(Leopardstown 2.20) hoping to improve from his 4 length runner up on debut, as they all seem to do at Ballydoyle….
While last weeks runner up of the Grade 2 Novice Hurdle at Chepstow, Amour De Nuit(Kempton3.15) gets another outing, this time in a novice hurdle listed race over 2m & will be hoping to finish in the winner’s enclosure.
And the beach is back, with racing at Southwell(AW), when I look at Southwell’s cards, I tend to look for Course winners & Custard the Dragon(3.05) is just one of them, having won 5 times from 6 C/D runs. Two runs on turf, when finishing down the field to Shady McCoy(Yep won both races!) but was 2nd at Newcastle(AW) off this mark back in May & should be in the mix!
Just a couple more things before we finish… Firstly…. Thanks Charlie for his kind words yesterday, I am humbled by them & yes it has been tough, but we have had some fantastic days, with many more to come….
& Finally….. We are really pleased that Twitter has finally suspended the account of The Truth(Aka Tip Advisor), who in his infinite wisdom, decided to troll one to many tipsters & had his account suspended…. The Main account…. So now hopefully the rest will all be found & suspended…. Although I am sure a few more will rue their ugly heads… But for the time being…..
Remember, if you cannot afford to bet, just watch…. ATR, is quite good on a Sunday too!
All the Best & Thanks for your support – Charlie & Rich
