Familiar names blasted onto the Hitlist yesterday – Dirty Northerner with a stunner of a 12/1 chance for his nap in the shape of Marianafoot in France. The Steelman has rarely been off the Hitlist in the past few weeks and his nap was No More Porter at an advised 11/2 (9/2 SP). Rob J big-priced nap was rewarded with a place: Comfort Line at 11/1 and Robicheaux is back with a successful nap – Cowboy Justice at 2/1. Fine tipping, all – thank you.
If I’ve missed anyone, please give me a shout via the August Winners thread.
The blog’s nap was at the abandoned Haydock, a track which seems to attract biblical rain whatever the season. Today’s nap is Come On Linda at 7/1 in the 8.25 Ripon. No EW perms today. I will wait until the ground settles.
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
