10 WINNERS FOR DAQMAN’S HORSES-TO-FOLLOW: Daqman has hit a terrific 10 winners with his horses to follow, aimed at the big races this Flat season, and has a new Top Ten today (explaining any deletions), with the big York meeting in mind. Here are his winners:

TODAY’S NAP IS AT WINDSOR: Daqman’s daily bets are always at the foot of his column. His current naps record is 11111303. Today’s nap is at Windsor.

ABATED This two-year–old sister to the flying Bated Breath was hampered, switched, squeezed out of a gap, first time out on Saturday and finally came up the rail at Newbury in her own time when all chance had gone. Fillies’ Mile.

BONNIE BRAE My horses to follow list is basically a next-time-it-runs list and I revise them and keep them in and take them out. What to do when you have a David Elsworth horse?

Mr In-and-Out himself has had a lean time of it this season and, now he’s warned that Bonnie Brae could go upmarket into the pattern (Group 3, Tipperary on Thursday).

But she may head for a handicap at York instead; I’ll keep her in but, ‘Elzie’ you haven’t changed a bit, since I used to watch the gallops with you and look for a single facial muscle moving. There never was one!

I’ll decide about Bonne Brae on Thursday. Meanwhile, I’m taking out Awake My Soul, Rosslyn Castle, Valyra and Highland Colori.

EBN ARAB Richard Hannon, who was thinking of running Pearl Acclaim in the Acomb this week, might be having second thoughts after his 2-1 jolly, Sea Shanty, was beaten more than six lengths by Related at Newbury on Friday.

Related had been 3-1 to Ebn Arab’s 5-2 in what the market said was a two-horse race in a maiden late last month. Not so. Ebn Arab savaged the entire field, going five lengths clear of Related.

It was not lost on trainer Charles Hills that the maiden was at York and the Acomb came straight to his lips. But Champagne, Royal Lodge, Dewhurst and Racing Post Trophy have all been uttered in the same breath as Ebn Arab since then.

HIGHLAND COLORI This is a tricky one. He’s up only 11lb for three fine straight-course wins (Ascot, Newmarket Rowley and July) but I’m worried that his next race may be round the bends at Goodwood. Doesn’t sound like him, does it.

LADYSHIP Look out for her at York this week. This lightly-raced three-year-old filly went clear on the opening day of the King George meeting but got mugged on the line by a horse more than twice her age.

Sir Michael Stoute trained her dam to move up from handicaps and go on to Group success later in her career. Check out Thursday’s fillies’ handicap: she looks to have a fantastic chance.

HALLELUJAH Another with very few miles on the clock (five runs, never out of the first three), climbing straight from success in a class-3 handicap to Group 3 company at York last time. Remains in pattern company but should improve

BOOM AND BUST York Thursday or Goodwood Saturday. He landed me one of my five winners on Shergar Cup day and, with five wins to his own name last season, and only three runs this, I must stand by him and see if he can twist another ace (can’t bust me; I’ve won on him already!)

HOYAM Michael Bell is still hard to follow this season but thinks so much of Hoyam that she is entered in the Lowther at York, and might even take them on in the Nunthorpe, where she would have huge two-year-old allowances.

Snag is that her Queen Mary conqueror, Ceiling Kitty, could also take in the Nunthorpe. And, if Hoyam meets her earlier date in the Lowther, she may have to beat Newfangled. It’s an old-fangled tangle, so I’m keeping my options open.

AGENT ALLISON Well, we’ve waited ages for some news on Royal Ascot’s Albany Stakes runner-up, whose sire won the Morny and the Middle Park for Peter Chapple-Hyam. Finally we’ve got some.

Peter has struck a seam in August – will six winners out of 11 runners in 10 days! – and announced that Agent Allison goes straight to the Fillies Mile.

NEWFANGLED Perhaps Agent Allison has been dodging her Albany conqueror, Newfangled, who now looks to have only Hoyam to beat in the Lowther Stakes this week.

DUNTLE Horses make fools of men, as they say. In my case, seven of them did: the seven of the first 10 home behind Duntle in the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot who failed in their next races (only two wins by the two others behind her in the race).

I thought it downgraded her so, when she stepped up (from handicap to Group 3), I said ‘nah, she can’t take the Desmond Stakes’; as you see from the list above, she won at 5-2.

She’s entered up twice this week (a Listed and a Group 3) and, with only four races since her debut, three of them wins, there seems no reason now why she shouldn’t go on improving.

ROSSLYN CASTLE Ran a stinker at Haydock (probably needs the soft ground and turning track that saw him home at Chester) and his Great Voltigeur entry seems to have been scrubbed.
