Hello and welcome back to another Saturday edition of Arseonlinetips from Rich and Charlie. We have a jammed pack blog again for you with the return on the Peoples Nap, Charlie’s Selections, Rich’s Nap and Final Word, so with a lot to get through, I will not bore you any more and just crack on…..

Peoples Nap Choices –

Lingfield(AW) – Standard

1.30 – Novice Stakes – Class 5 – 3YO Only – 1m 1y

Carouse – Two wins from two runs at this course. Won a Class 5, 7f maiden by 1 & 1/4 lengths from Daltrey in January before landing a C/D claimer by 6 lengths and moved to Jamie Osborne. This is first run for new yard – 2/1

3.50 – Handicap – Class 2 – 1m 1y

Goring – Since going from 6f to 1m has improved no end, with 3 wins from 3 starts over C/D including two in this class. Won last time out on January 13th by a neck and is raised 3 – 9/4

Chepstow – Soft

1.55 – Maiden Hurdle – Class 4 – 2m 3f 100y

Mount Rushmore – 3/4’s of length runner up on hurdle debut at Exeter in a Class 4 Novice Hurdle over 2m 2f, had every chance but hung left. Sure to come on for that experience on February 11th – 6/4

That’s the PN Choices, on to Charlie’s Saturday Selection’s … Come on Dancer, give us ya winners from yesterday and the Selections for today….


Cheers Rich,lets kick things off with a recap of Friday’s performance.

Mouteka -Was pulled up and was a loss.

Mimram -Won by a nose from odds on oli who pushed Mimram all the way to the line Advised at 4-1 returned at 6-1

Knockgraffon -Made a mistake at the 12th and finished 4th as a result and was a loss.

.Just the one winner again although would take 6-1 for my nap any day especially when it’s advised at 4’s. Hopefully get more of the same from my selections for Saturday and you can find those below.


Monbeg Legend -Has 3 wins and a 2nd place from 4 runs, losing his unbeaten record at Taunton last time can be attributed to unsuitable ground. Gets his ideal conditions today and can resume winning ways here and make amends for that 2nd last time out.

Win Advised


Orvar – Won at Kempton in October last year over 5f. Then was moved yards and had been gelded and had a wind op before winning first time out for new connections at Wolverhampton over 5f again. Has an outside draw to contend with here but given the form of last two runs has to enter calculations in a slightly tougher race.

Win Advised


Pivotal Flame – Has won last two races here over 1m 2f. Is only 2lb higher today and the hat-trick looks within reach considering the form of those last two races. Paddy Bradley takes 5lb off with his claim and that just adds to the appeal in this race.

Win Advised


Well that’s my thoughts on Saturday’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 back over to Rich for his Nap and Final Word.


Rich’s Nap –

Lingfield(AW) – 3.15 – Winter Derby Stakes – Group 3 Class 1 – 1m 2f

Utmost – 3rd to Petite Jack in a Class 1 listed C/D race, beaten 1/2 a length on first run over this distance after stepping up from 1m. Won over C/D last time out on February 3rd, in a Class 1 Listed race by 1 & 1/4 lengths from Victory Bond. Drawn in Stall 2 – 5/1 WIN

Rich’s Nap Result(Friday) – High Anxiety – Unplaced & a loss

Final Word – 

Plenty to go through on a Friday night, lots of cards, here’s what I found…..

Were start at Kempton, where Malaya(2.25) has a chance in the grade 2 Juvenile Hurdle. the French Listed winner has since won a Listed contest for new trainer Paul Nicholls by 4 lengths and was runner up last time out on December 9th, in tough conditions at Aintree, has had a short break and with form figures reading 1/2/1/2/1/2 should go well on better ground today.

Another I like is the returning PYM(4.25) for Nicky Henderson, a winner on NH Flat debut back in April 2017, when beating Cool Mix(More on that later) by 4 lengths and has been off since. That was a 2m Class 3 contest and returns in a 2m Class 5 NH Flat race.

Newcastle hold a nice NH Card and as I referred to Cool Mix(3.55) since finishing runner up to PYM, has finished runner up another couple of times over hurdles before landing a 2m Kelso Class 4 Novice Hurdle by 3 lengths on January 25th and runs from bottom weight today with the guidance of Champion Jockey Richard Johnson, now stepping up to Class 2 company.

At Chepstow, Sainte Ladylime(3.40) drops from Grade 2 to Class 2 after finishing a distant runner up last time out to La Bague Au Roi in a Ascot G2 Hurdle over 2m 7f(Today’s distance), while 4th in that race Midnight Tune has since won a Grade 2 contest.

And finally, a tracker of mine runs at Fairyhouse in  the Grade 3 Juvenile 2m Hurdle for 4 year olds only,. Mitchouka(1.45) who has 3 wins from 6 hurdle starts and has been unlucky in the last 2 Graded races, finishing runner up & 3rd before landing a 2m C/D hurdle by 8 lengths on January 14th & is likely to go off ODDS ON! 

That’s your lot folks. Thanks for popping in and having a look around the joint, let’s hope it’s another good Saturday and we all have some winners.

Remember to only bet what you can afford to lose, if not just watch. 

All the best – Charlie & Rich
