Rob J who recently hinted at a return to form is firmly back on the Hitlist with 2/1 nap yesterday, Quercus. Good to see you back, Rob.
Bacciodilupo too is again on the list with a cracking nap in Blue Moonrise, advised at 17/2. Fine work.
If I’ve missed anyone, please give me a shout via the August Winners thread.
The blog’s nap yesterday was a dismal 9th. I’m hoping to hit form again soon in time for York and expecting a better result today with one who went in my notebook after I napped her last time – Come On Linda. I think her young claimer learnt more that day than he normally would in half a dozen races and granted a wee bit of luck, she can make amends today in the 6.35 Carlisle at around 6/1. She’s my nap. Another I like is a horse who ran creditably first time out after leaving George Boughey for Karen Tutty – Freak Out in the 3.25 at Hamilton at around 14/1.
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
