NAPS LOST? STEWARDS INQUIRY!

IT can’t go on forever! It might blow today. But Daqman’s winning sequence of best bets has lasted so long even the Stewards seemed to want to know why two of them lost!

His run of naps has reached 10 winners in the last 16, with seven winners from the last eight still standing. Returns of 111311PP11 included two favourites pulled up, failing to run their races.

In both cases the trainers were asked to give an explanation. Take Your Time (2-1 fav Thursday): trainer’s rep said ‘possibly unsuited by the ground.’ Zwicky (6-4 fav Friday) was ‘never traveling.’

Daqman’s weekend naps double, back to back at Musselburgh, took his best-bets profit to 98.60 to recommended stakes since the start of the sequence on January 20.

WON 10-11 LIARI (Sunday nap, February 4) from BETDAQ 2.98
WON 100-3 AFADIL (Saturday nap) from BETDAQ 5.7
+Thursday and Friday naps both pulled up+
WON 85-40 BREWING (Wednesday nap)
WON 10-11 EL HIBRI (Tuesday nap)

WON 11-8 OH SO GRAND (Saturday nap, January 20)


STATTLER FOR MULLINS

⭕ 1.20 Punchestown The Willie Mullins v Gordon Elliott fireworks were subdued at the Dublin Festival, with Mullins winning 9-1.

But this is still an interesting clash of quality horses; both nine years old, both with 12st, as penalty carriers in this cross-country.

Coko Beach (Elliott), rated 161, is setting himself right for Aintree again. He’s been eighth in the Grand National and runner-up in the Becher Chase.

Stattler (Mullins), rated 160, is a genuine recruit to the cross-country discipline, at this time last year runner-up in the Irish Gold Cup to Galopin Des Champs.

Divided Allaho and Appreciate It at Thurles in January and should be spot on for this, the obvious choice with the Elliott team, seemingly out of form.


MURPHY THE DIFFERENCE

⭕ 1.45 Lingfield Hugo Palmer is clearly enjoying his new HQ in Cheshire, with winners at Southwell, Newcastle and Bahrain, all within 10 days, and his AW strike rate this season is 35%.

But he would love to get How Impressive’s head in front here. Perhaps Oisin Murphy has been called in to make the difference after two near misses for the five-year-old at Lingfield. BETDAQ 3.5 taken.

In the gelding’s autumn sequence of 32122, which included success at Yarmouth, he twice finished half-a-length down in fields of 12 and 13 at Lingfield.

Freetodream gets plenty of weight but that’s because her win and place form has been in lowly class 6, even weak for that level.

How Impressive was runner-up to a gelding rated 81 here, whereas Freetodream’s stable had to explain to the Stewards at Brighton how come he beat a 54 three-year-old and were told: this was a weaker class 6.


ONE-TWO CAN BOTH WIN

⭕ 3.02 Carlisle Having top-weight in this class 3, though only six years old, suggests that Royale Margaux has form to be respected. So does her new trainer, Tom Symonds.

He has had three winners and four others placed from nine still standing in the last 12 days.

Royale Margaux gave Lilith 5lb and finished almost 25 lengths in front of her at Cheltenham the last day.

Lilith won this race last year and is obviously aimed at a repeat, but Royale Margaux has earned three times her money, though three years younger.

Victory for La Malmaison (Betdaq Betting Exchange 2.5 in the 1.50) at Punchestown today would be a further boost to the selection. She won the Mares Handicap at the Cheltenham December meeting by less than a length from Royale Margaux. BETDAQ 2.86 this morning.

What are points? Points facilitate a staking plan, which is the secret to creating profit. One point is whatever you choose: a pound, a euro, or whatever ….

Start with a bank and decide how much you can afford to lose over a period of time, and determine the size of your bets accordingly. Daqman makes this variation every day.
