Dirty Northerner hit the Hitlist yesterday with a French double: nap Asad Zabeel went in at 5/2 and Ancient Rome at an advised 15/8. Alan’s EW nap Bondi Girl was 3rd at 9/1. Fine work gents, on a tough day’s racing.
If I’ve missed anyone, please give me a shout via the August Winners thread.
The blog’s nap got out-jockeyed – hemmed in at a crucial time for a strong-finishing second. Today’s nap is the in and out End Zone, who was out last time and I’m hoping will be ‘in’ today. He’s a 16/1 shot in the 4.00 Beverley.
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
