Natural Selection

ORIGINAL NAP A NON-RUNNER, SELECTIONS AMENDED WITH NEW NAP.

Last week, i suggested it would be no surprise if four or five favourites won, looking at the shape of the card. Blog Nap Think Ahead was only second, but if anyone followed the suggested e/w multiples covering all seven races, they should have had a rewarding 'pick-up', with four of them winning and the other three finishing second. A rare 'full house'!  Jamesie also filled the frame at a rewarding price.

Simply cannot let the number ...

Meydan 25/2. Looking Ahead

Posted by jim g on Monday, February 22, 2016,
A near miss last week as the blog Nap, Cool Cowboy, available at 6/1 early on, was run down by a reformed (and first time gelded) Maftool in the dying strides. Ertijaal loathed the dirt, another talented horse that you hope isn't soured from the game like so many before him, for an outing on the gravel. 

CARD:

It's one of those days..... Generally as a punter the biggest edge we have is that bookies have to price every race, every day, and we can cherry pick, not only which favourites to back/o...

Meydan 18/2. Keep Cool

Posted by jim g on Monday, February 15, 2016,
A woeful Thursday for the blog last week, though Marking's unfortunate accident at the start was 'one of these things'. There's just no accounting for something like that. Found myself having to bite my tongue on twitter as some usually decent judges indulged in some splendid aftertiming. :)

Some talking up the horse pre-race with the usual 'Let's Go Marking' Potential Superstar' and many such excited comments, turned post race into 'still a dodge' and the like. But well done to those who did ...

Meydan 11/2. Marking Time

Posted by jim g on Monday, February 8, 2016,
No flannel from the blog; last week was the first without a winner from the three main bets, so a disappointing effort from your's truly. Paene Magnus came within a stride of saving face among the 'other races', and the 'One for the Road' feature made it two in a row, but still a frustrating week! Do rermember as I frequently mention, to remind new and existing readers, this blog is amateur written - sometimes it shows! ;)

Guineas week this week, two small field races with very short priced fa...

Meydan preview 4/2. Popular Poplar

Posted by jim g on Monday, February 1, 2016,
Always frustrating when the headline horse goes down as last Thursday, but hopefully it didn't completely overshadow the success of the other two main bets of the week, with Anaerobio and Forries Waltz winning at nice enough prices, particularly for anyone who got on early around 9/2 and 11/2 respectively..

It's a much better card I think this week,with a particularly tasty Round Two of the Al Maktoum Challenge featuring the likes of Surfer, Special Fighter, Prayer for Relief and Faulkner,
