Wednesday was billed as Winnersday and not a sausage…… Rich’s Nap was beat fair and square, finishing in 4th and Charlie’s Double, was down after the first leg… We hope to be back on track today. So let’s get started….

Rich’s Nap – 

Southwell(AW) – 4.55 – Stayers Handicap – Class 4 – 1m 6f 21y

Great Return – Having won the last 2 starts, both at Wolverhampton(AW). Stepped up to 2m on February 5th in a Class 6 Handicap, when winning by 7 lengths from Temasek Star and followed that win up on February 14th, when landing a Class 5, 1m 6f Handicap again at Wolves(AW) from Brigadoon by 4 lengths, when carrying a penalty. Carries a penalty again today. Now runs from 75, but will return to 69 after this race – WIN 3/1

Rich’s Nap Result – Native Appeal – 4th & Unplaced

I will hand you over to Charlie to take you through todays Selections and a quick reminder of yesterday’s result…. I will see you for Final Word ….

Cheers Rich, We will start with a recap on Wednesday’s performance.

French Crusader – Was an unlucky 2nd and my advised double failed on leg one and was a loss.

War Creation -Was pulled up and was also a loss.

. Not what I had expected with French Crusader finishing 2nd and War Creation being pulled up meaning my advised double was a losing one, hopefully get back on track with Thursday’s selections listed below.


Avocet -Still a Maiden after 11 stats although was 3rd at Lingfield on January over 1m 2f in a Class 6 race. Was then 5th at Kempton over 1m 3f again in a Class 6 race. Yard are doing well at the moment and the step up in distance to 1m 4f 14y could spark an improvement here.

Win Advised


Simply Business -Lightly raced and although hasn’t won for a while, pulled hard on several occasions and has failed to get involved in class 4 and class 5 handicaps recently. Wears first time tongue tie and if settling better could grab a place at 7-1.

Eachway Advised


Mighty Zip -4 time course winner who has failed to get off the mark this winter. Won this race last year and has slipped below that winning mark. Was behind a couple of today’s rivals over 6f last time out and could easily win this race over 5f today although iv opted for the Eachway as a safer option.

Eachway Advised


Well that’s my thoughts on Thursday’s selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will now hand you over to Rich for The Final Word.


Final Word – 

When the new Wind Operation declaration rules were introduced, everyone was happy as it was useful information for punters, as sometimes, not every time a horse can win straight after a Wind Operation. This happened yesterday at Newcastle, the difference this time, was this it had been undeclared by the Trainer until arriving at the race course. The trainer was fined a reduced rate for being honest, that it was an oversight. The information was released to the public as soon as the Stewards were aware and the Trainer landed a winner at odds of 25/1…. Happy Punters?? Rules are Rules…. Can of Worms I say!

Back to the racing….. Kate Appleby Shoes(2.25 Thurles) runs in a Mares’ Chase on her third start in this sphere, having won on Chase debut over 2m 3f and then finished 4th, when stepped up to Grade 2 at this Course over 2m 4f. Now steps up to 3m for the first time.

Back at Southwell on the AW, Foolaad(3.45) arrives here having won the last 3 over C/D(6f) on Jan 23rd in a class 2 by a neck & then when dropped back to Class 3 on February 6th to win again by a neck.

In the evening, another AW meeting takes place at Chelmsford & Very Honest(7.00) will be looking to make it two wins in a row, after winning on February 10th when beating Born to Finish by a short head over 6f, Born to Finish & 4th place Brother Tiger have both since won since.

Another in great from is Surrey Blaze(8.30) who won on return from a break at Wolves(AW) over 1m 142y after stepping up from 7f, winning by a neck. Followed that up on January 18th, to win over C/D (1m 2f) by 2 & 3/4 lengths

Thanks for popping by folks… We hope this helps…..

Remember only bet what you can afford to lose… If not just watch

All the Best – Charlie & Rich
