THREE OUT OF FOUR PLACE NAPS UP: Daqman has been playing the Betdaq place market lately, and he landed his third place nap out of four yesterday with Glory City (2nd 5-1), following Young Mags (WON 15-2) and Cavaleiro (3rd 9-2). He also scored yesterday with Require (WON 11-2)

BE BOLD AND GO FOR THE BETDAQ PERKS: Today Daqman plays up his winnings with two naps: one to win, one a place, as he celebrates all the perks of betting with BETDAQ.

Welcome to punter-friendly Betdaq betting. I’m making that little speech at the door for those knocking anxiously this morning, as the Tote announces a massive 16.5% take-out from Monday week.

To all who used the Tote in the old days because outsiders were big, and place betting easy, come on in: BETDAQ is your home from home.

I’ve had a marvelous time, with hundreds of winning naps and big-odds big-race success. I’m not always on a roll, but I can stick in three place naps in a row with separate place bets and I can SEE the place prices offered before I bet.

So, unlike the Tote, you are not betting blind and waiting for Mr Take-Out to rob you before he pays you your dividend. Imagine backing a winner and you have £100 to come but the man gives you only £83 and a 50p piece.

Not even your local bookie dare do that to your face. But that’s the blatant Tote plan. So tell your mates: move over to the Daq before Fred done you again!

The Tote boss has the added nerve to tell punters that the new deduction will be better for them in the long run. It’s all about liquidity, he says. But where else can you see exactly what liquidity is available each time you bet to every decimal point. Betdaq, of course.

Or should I say, Betdaq OFF course. By which I mean, I still can’t get over the simplicity of it all. No Tote queues in the rain, no seedy shops full of noisy slot machines. It’s all on your lounge laptop or in your office chair.

Talking of all the perks of betting with BETDAQ, I’m saving up for a big tilt at the Cesarewitch windmill this week, but I can’t resist a pound from my pocket for Bold Perk (3.10 Ludlow) at 19.0 the win and 4.1 the place, as I write.

Bold Perk won the race last year. He’s had the great good luck of a sound surface, which has brought him five wins altogether in a short career of 23 starts, despite his age.

His form figures in class 4 or lower in 2011 and 2012, chases and hurdles, are 12111P41 and here he is dropping back from three class-3 runs to where he feels at home in class 4.

Another lucky with the good ground at Ludlow is A Little Bit Dusty (4.40), an eight-lengths winner on the Flat recently, unbeaten for his amateur rider, who is under the tutillage of the great Reg Hollinshead academy. Reg is 86 and I’ve already had more winners than his total of 2,000, but I didn’t have to train them, and I’ve no intention of doing so at that age.

At Towcester, the rush is on to beat the handicapper. Hit The Switch (4.20) and Royale Knight (4.50) are due to go up 10-11lb. I shall back the first one to win my stake on the second horse, which is my win nap of the day.

Luca Cumani has a 25% strike-rate with his handicap debutants, and shoots with similar results in all handicaps at Nottingham. So Sprint Tonic (5.00).

Kempton Park: Five races in a row are sponsored by BETDAQ with the 7.30 handicap a fascinating contest: eight horses are separated by only around five points in the Daq market, as I write. Let’s see if I can separate them some more.

I’ve deleted trainers out of form, high numbers in the draw, and those horses which have so far failed to win over this specialist trip of 7f.

I’m left thinking that the winner will come from (down the card) Harrison George, Numeral, Centrifugal, Masai Moon, Sea Soldier or Golden Tempest.

A leap of faith is required to fancy old Harrison George; Numeral went for a walk in the market this morning; on this track, Centrifugal may not be the force he’s shown from the front; Masai Moon is high in the handicap and Golden Tempest has had her annual win.

Sea Soldier has his problems but ran a cracker here when he was well fit in the Spring. If his recent return has put him right, he could get a place at least, at 15.0 the win and 4.3 in the BETDAQ place market. That’s where I came in.

BET 1.1pts win and place BOLD PERK (place nap, 3.10 Ludlow)
WIN-14: BET 7.6pts win HIT THE SWITCH (4.20 Towcester)
BET 2.3pts in A LITTLE BIT DUSTY (4.40 Ludlow)
BET 14pts win ROYALE KNIGHT (win nap, 4.50 Towcester)
BET 4pts win SPRINT TONIC (5.00 Nottingham)
BET 1.4pts win and place SEA SOLDIER (7.30 Kempton)

* Daqman stakes his bets to win 20 points, unless he says differently.
