Saturday was a strange day for us here, with both the PN & other Choice both finishing 2nd, while 3 from the 4 noted in Final Word managed to win! Charlie drew a blank after being in very good form. It’s a new week and we intend to get back to where wee were last week, so let’s crack on….

Peoples Nap Choices – 

Carlisle – Soft, Heavy in Places

2.00 – Novice Hurdle – Class 4 – 2m 3f 61y

Ballinslea Bridge – Runner up on first two starts over hurdles before landing a 2m 2f, Class 4 Novice Hurdle at Market Rasen by 6 lengths from Absolutely Dylan, who has since won – 3/1

Kempton(AW) – Standard

6.50 – Fillies’ Handicap – Class 5 – 7f

The Special One – 3rd twice in December by 1 & 1/2 lengths over 7f at Lingfield, before finishing Runner Up last time out, again at Lingfield by a neck to Natalie Express in a Class 5, 7f Handicap – 10/3

8.20 – Handicap – Class 5 – 1m 8f

Western Way – Two from Two over distance, having won by 1 length at Chelmsford on January 11th in a Class 6 Handicap before winning again last time out on February 1st over C/D by 2 & 1/4 lengths. Adam Kirby has been on board for both runs and retains the hot seat today – 13/8

PN Result(Saturday) – Presenting Percy – 2nd….

Charlie is having a day away but is here to give you his results from Saturday


The Dutchman -Was pulled up as only 3 runners from a field of 8 completed this race and was a loss.

Make Music -Led before being headed inside final furlong and couldn’t find anything more and was another loss.

Templeross -Finished a disappointing 9th capping off a horrendous day with yet another loss.

.Well Saturday didn’t go as planned after being in good form prior to the weekend, hopefully get back on track once races improve possibly Tues or Wednesday at the latest. I will pass you back over to Rich for The Final Word.


Final Word – 

This segment had 3 winners from 4 noted, it seems to be a common theme…. Maybe time will see how we go and whether the PN is worth bothering with. Maybe I will go and just have a Nap of the day and put the rest in here… I don’t know what will happen, maybe just have the PN for big festivals???

Anyway back to Monday and we will start at Lingfield, where Fleminport(3.15) will go off a short price favourite, when trying to make it two wins on the spin after landing a Hereford Class 4 Maiden Novice Hurdle over 2m 5f by a head and now drops back in trip to 2m 3f.

The Surrey National  and I like the look of The Artful Cobbler(3.50) who has won two on the bounce and is entered with a low weight going up from a previous win in Class 4 Company by 2 lengths from Talk of The South and that was after being stepped up in trip from 2m 7f to 3m 1f and with today’s 3m 4f trip looking to bring out more improvement in this unexposed horse after only 3 previous Chase runs……

Another last time out winner looking to add another victory is Blottos(3.35 Carlisle) for Sue Smith and Danny Cook, makes handicap debut after winning a Class 4 Novice Hurdle by 3 lengths, making it two wins and a runner up spot from the last 3 runs.

Kempton hold an AW evening meeting and American Gigolo(5.50) is likely to go off a short price favourite, having finished runner up on AW debut on return from a Wind Operation before winning last time out over 1m 4f(today’s distance) to win a Class 4, 1m 4f Maiden by 2 & 3/4 lengths. Fran Berry has been on board for both previous rides and continues the partnership today.

Going Native(7.20) has finished in the first 3 on the last 3 runs, last time out was runner up over 7f after two 3rd places over 1m  and now goes back up to 1m in the hope that this will be a winning run and is likely to go off a decent EW price(8/1) when this was written……

That’s all for today folks, please if you follow keep stakes small, as these are just notes!

All the Best – Charlie & Rich
