Wrong nap again yesterday for the blog as second choice Celerity romped home at 40/1 (advised at 50/1). EW single on Celerity and one £1 place treble landed – Miinhaaj – Our Man In Havana – Celerity, but Greta Bridge, painfully, the only one out of a place thus binning all place accumulators. Still, Celerity kept the Hitlist going on a rare slow day for our tipsters.
The blog’s nap is East Asia in the 1.25. Here is one comparative shorty and one double figure runner in each of the other Ascot races that I’ll be putting in EW perms with Skybet who offer an extra place in every race.
12.50 Aplomb: Count D’Orsay
2.00 Mancini: HMS President
2.35 Bear Force One: Dance Fever
3.10 Star Caliber: Prison Break
3.45 Shark Two One: Popmaster
An odd looking entry catches my eye in the 3.00 Haydock: Central City, one who’s been running well over middle distances and is now suddenly dropped to 7f with a claimer who appears to be making his debut – Bradley Furniss. Trainer Ian Williams is no fool; he’s had 3 runners in the past two days and they’ve finished 1,1,3. He’s 28/1 to 4 places with Skybet and at that price I’m happy to take a chance EW.
As ever, please leave your naps/tips by making a comment below. All welcome, especially newcomers; just enter a name when asked so we know who is who. No prizes, but it’s good fun here among some seasoned punters, most of whom spent years commenting at the Guardian on the original Talking Horses forum, which has now been heavily cut back.
If you tip a winner, please use the Winners thread to highlight your result and we’ll put you on the Hitlist next day. There is a Winners thread for each month.
We also have a Lounge thread for general chat, though as a forum we are a bit limited to what WordPress, our host here, provides as far as structure goes.
Thanks for looking in. Good luck with your bets today, but please bear in mind that this is meant to be ‘fun’. There are many wise heads posting tips here and we haven’t yet gone a day without somebody tipping a winner. But never bet more than you can afford to lose. Small stakes can still produce wide smiles.
All the best
