Talking Horses Sunday October 10th 2021

A quiet Saturday on the Hitlist, partly explained perhaps by a blue moon appearing to acknowledge two winning naps in a row for the blog. Buzz won at 8/1.

Mickle scored with nap Canonized at 7/2. Nice work, Mickle. El Gran Senor went NB EW at 13/2 Empress Josephine, who was 3rd.

If I’ve missed anyone, please leave a note on the Winners thread.

I’ll be back home this evening, so a full blog service will resume.

The blog’s nap today is Big Team in the 4.40 Goodwood at 12/1 BOG.

Good luck.



  1. NAP Fairyhill Run, 3.55 Limerick, 8/1 or so.

    Good reading /some excellent posts in the last few days.

    Buona domenica!


  2. I’m with JakeB here /
    Napping Champagne Piaf in the 4.40 Goodwood.
    Was 4-1 but money came and went into 2-1.
    Drifting back out but I’ve taken the 9/4 on 365 with BOG.
    Will be held up and come with a late run which is good for the 1m4 trip at Goodwood as the front runners tend to get going too soon at the start which is quite stiff.
    This horse won after not handling the Epsom cambers.
    Decent race though and I fear Raymond tusk who could run well again.

    NB Is Benaud 12-1 EW in the Irish Cesariwich 3.05 at the curragh. If he stays the trip he Looks to have a serious chance as an unexposed 3yo. Claimer takes 5 off and there is plenty places paid.


      1. Wasnt really to be today. I did get a sneaky 7th place from Benouad but I’m not proud of it! Stake back plus a little bit always helps


  3. I know it’s aftertiming but I had seriously thought about napping Buzz. Jockeys prove doubters wrong when a cloud hangs over them. It was unfortunate about the name of the Horse for OM.
    Henderson is competitive and what Mullins can do I can do.
    My nap today is National Ballet in the 3.05 at the Curragh which was 10/1 last night but now 11/2. Not often you see a Ballydoyle Horse at the bottom of a Handicap.
    My n.b is Cyclamen in the 13.20 at 33/1 e.w.
    Named after a forgotten group of baddies in an early Dr. Who series.


    1. Unfortunate…bee-have, man! 🐝🐝 Bee-tee-dubs, several of that good Doctor’s companions run in the 4.15 race -Wee Pablo, Gordon Bennett and Mary Salome.. not to mention, of course, Princess Plumeria who was from the planet Noirvento????? Enough of that nonsense, my nap is also in that race 👀👀Youceeyouceecee 👀👀, 33/1, e/w 5 places at all good bookstores. NB is Longseoir in the 3.40 there at 7/2.


        1. You think he’s the ‘Suprise Package’ (sic) in the race? That’s my worst-named horse of the day in the first at Limerick.


  4. Todays losing EW Nap Is Be My Sea 13:45 Good 10/1 4 places..also H.M.S. President 16:40 Good 15/2 EW…did 16 years in the mob so would be amiss not to tip.

        1. A pain shared is a pain halved. Wait a minute, no it’s not! Went from thinking we’d got guaranteed place and possible win to agonising 5th in 50 yds.


  5. My EW pin-sticking at the Curragh has come up with:
    13:55 Dilawara
    15:05 Powerful Kieran
    15:40 Athlumney Hall
    4, 6, 4 places respectively on BF. Who knows, perhaps today my ship comes in!
