Great to see Alan’s patience and his EW system rewarded with a winning EW Nap advised 17/2 – Chichester (won at 6/1) You are regularly in the places, Alan, good to see you get the win money too.
Mixed emotions for El Gran Senor today as his nap scooted home at 11/2. Sadly he got just 10/3 from his bookie. He, like me, hopes you backed it BOG! Well done, EGS.
Hitlist regular The Steelman suffered the same fate, his nap Pleasant Man winning at 11/4, but advised at 9/4. Great to see you back here, Steelman after your wee break. Well done.
The hugely consistent Rakib got the best of it, just shading the SP with his NB Wajd winning at 13/8: advised at 7/4. Fine work again, Rakib.
On catch up from Wednesday, Miss Terri Tipster nailed a double in one of her Lucky 15s with Fauvette at 15/8 and Sunset Memory at 16/1. Nice work, Miss TT.
The blog’s nap Fairman was 4th
Just a point on Best Odds Guaranteed; the only reliable bookie I’ve found for evening-before bets is Bet365. None of the other bookies I know of will give BOG until the day of the race. Even with that, some will apply it only after a certain time of the morning.
If I’ve missed anyone, please give me a shout via the September Winners thread.
The blog’s nap today is Call Me Ginger at 11/2 in the 3.20
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.
What This Blog Is For
As mentioned above this long-running Steeplechasing blog was adapted in a hurry when The Guardian announced they were cutting back on their (usually) daily Talking Horses section. Many punters had gathered there over the years to exchange ideas and fancies. Part of the adapting we had to do at the start of this blog was restricting this daily main article to tips/naps, while we found our feet regarding house rules, moderation and stuff like that.
We are now in a position to open this main daily article to all subjects. It can be very enjoyable when something is latched onto by our knowledgeable, quick-witted posters as they indulge in wordplay and jousting. We still want tips of course, from those who want to tip. It’s by no means an obligation.
If you do post a tip/nap, just include it with whatever subject you are discussing, preferably at the foot of your post. So long as you remember to come back after a winner and put the details of that win in the monthly Winners Thread, then we can include you on the Hitlist in the next day’s main article.
General guidance: No swearing, please. We’re not prudes, it’s just that there is wide scope in the swearword lexicon and we do not have moderators (and hope we’ll never need them). Also, please keep discussions on politics and religion to The Lounge section, though brief references to these subjects in the main article are not forbidden.
Thanks for looking in. If you are betting, especially if you follow our tipsters, good luck with your bets, 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
Any post drawn to my attention that I deem unsuitable will be deleted or edited, depending on the content.
Ask a dozen individuals what they deem suitable for anything and you’ll probably get 12 different answers. So, decisions will be made on my judgement. In the altered post, I will explain my reasons for adjusting/deleting a post and there will be no appeal, unless I have made a blunder (not impossible).
I do not always have the time to read every post, so, if you believe a post needs moderated, please use the ‘contact me‘ form.
