El Gran Senor is a late but very welcome addition to the Hitlist with his Friday napped EW double of Orinico River(14/1) who was placed and Twilight (11/2) who won at the Curragh. By late I mean, of course, a Friday result rather than a Saturday one which this blog covers. Nice work El Gran Senor.
Good to see Rob J back too with 9/4 winner Aratus (an impressive turn of foot from that one, I thought). Well done, Rob.
Robicheaux’s nap was a non runner, but he also tipped Sacred, a 6/1 winner. Good work, Robicheaux.
Finally, the consistent Dirty Northerner had a nice winner in France with Georgia at 10/1. Great to see you nailing another one DN.
If I’ve missed anyone, please give me a shout via the August Winners thread.
As to the blog’s nap, barely got a mention in commentary despite market support. Today we go for Keep Busy in that cracking race the flying fillies stakes at 3.10 Pontefract.
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
