FABULOUS FIVE NAPS IN A ROW FOR DAQMAN: King-of-the-tipsters Daqman chalked up a sensational run of five winning naps yesterday, all at a working man’s price. His latest starred selection in the Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury was Tullius (WON 11-4).

NOW 135 POINTS PROFIT IN SIX WINNING DAYS: Today he bids for seven successive days with a profit each day. He’s now 135.18 points up from a spree which started with five winners on Saturday. Here are the naps since then:

WON 100-30 Sunday (Cape Explorer)
WON 5-2 Monday (Havin’ A Good Time)
WON 5-1 Tuesday (Cats Eyes)
WON 4-1 Wednesday (Oetzi from 14.0)
WON 11-4 Thursday (Tullius)

Where will Stoutie hit the six? Cricket-lover Sir Michael, who is in sensational form with seven winners from his last 13 runners, has eight horses in six races at six meetings today!  He’s sure to build on his current form sequence of 1211.

1.50 Newbury: Stoute, who had his first two-year-old winner of the season on Wednesday, runs juveniles Altharoos under Paul Hanagan in this race, Mouth Piece (5.25) at Newmarket, ridden by Franny Norton, and in the same race at Kempton, Love Magic and Centred, Ryan Moore and Shane Kelly in the saddle.

The others are maiden races, among them one at Catterick which he often targets. More about that later on.

2.00 Newcastle: Also in fantastic form is Peter Chapple-Hyam: his last 14 runners have all reached the frame, and his only runner today, Al Mukhdam, by the sire of Excelebration, has had a run and looks poised for success in this.

The worry is Wyldfire, also with a fine pedigree, and entered by Richard Fahey in the Champagne Stakes and, speculatively, for next year’s Derby. Could be ready. Could be anything.

2.50 Newbury: Duster looks a good bet, dropping to a claimer: 10 of his last 12 runs have been in class 2 and 3 handicaps; he’s not ground dependent, and has Ryan Moore to do the steering.

He’s up against eight-year-olds in Fishforcompliments (a bridesmaid with four seconds in his last five starts, including claimers) and Ezdeyaad (very poor strike rate; needs it firm).

Bawaardi is plating class and prefers AW and, while Prime Exhibit is now down the handicap, he can’t make use of that mark here and his yard is struggling for winners (1-29).

3.25 Newbury: The Stoute stable is going for a hat-trick of three-year-old handicappers following Yanabeeaa (on Wednesday) and Sequence, his only runner of the day yesterday.

Grandiloquent has had a break since a quick double in the Spring and gets a stone from the heavy-ground plodder, the blinkered Asker.

You need eyes in the back of your head to spot a Barney Curley coup and, though Eye Of The Tiger has also been best on a soft surface so far (as has Require), the 2010 Group-2 winner has crashed down the handicap. Kangaroo Court has to bounce back, and Lily In Pink is up in the weights and up in grade. Grandiloquent should win but the worry for naps purposes is the long break.

3.50 Nottingham: Vying with Stoute and Chapple-Hyam for stable in form is Roger Varian, who has saddled an incredible 23 out of 25 runners in the frame, 10 of them winners, including Sound Hearts eight days ago.

Sound Hearts romped home at Brighton, six lengths and six lengths but is 5.3 on BETDAQ this morning behind Surprise Moment who was equally impressive at Windsor.

Hers wasn’t a runaway win but she scored in very fast time, giving them all a good start but storming home strongly inside the final furlong.

6.25 Newmarket: Frankel and Nathaniel were the one-two in 2010 and subsequent Derby winner Motivator scored in this maiden in 2004.

Despite the four-horse presence of Godolphin, the HQ whisper for this year is Sir Henry Cecil’s Squire Osbaldeston, who has the Dewhurst as his main target. Cat O’Mountain could be the danger.

7.10 Catterick: Race after race seems to be down to two horses. Sir Michael Stoute targets this one (he’s never been out of the frame in it, and has had three winners and three seconds).

I was ready to say ‘ok, I have to put one in the naps sequence at odds on.’ But, though paper forecast 4-7, Galleon was 2.28 on BETDAQ at the time of writing.

I grabbed a bit of that but Galleon may be sailing into a battle with Cottesmore, a Mark Johnston which was the one seemingly wanted in the market.

Johnston has had as much success in this race as Stoute, with form figures of 12211 and a massive level-stakes profit.

8.05 Newmarket: I’m expecting an improved performance from Sos Brillante, dropping back from Group company, but 23.0 on BETDAQ this morning. Second prediction: owner Rick Dale will be training under his own name by the end of the season.

8.25 Kempton: Switzerland makes a solo trip from Mark Johnston’s Yorkshire yard, back to AW – in which he’s never been out of the three – after a splendiferous effort at Glorious Goodwood.

Takeitfromalady is also down in class, and Unex Michelangelo could improve for the switch to this surface. This trio of three-year-olds have as their main older-horse rival, Lockantanks, who has a welter burden.

And the main threat to Switzerland seems to be Loving Spirit, Group and Listed tried in the past, and close up in a big-field CD handicap in the Spring: he has come in to second favourite, at the time of writing.

NAP VERDICT: Duster (2.50 Newbury) looks a stand-out to polish them off in his claimer. Not a great sort by any means but better class than this lot and with Ryan Moore to kid him along.

BET 7pts win GRANDILOQUENT (3.25 Newbury)
