MAN WITH A PASSION FOR WINNERS: Daqman capped a sensational tipping run with an evening hat-trick at Windsor and Kempton yesterday, 3-3 to take his score to 12 strikes in six days of winners every day.

Monday hat-trick: 30 points profit

★ He’s had five naps up out of seven: 3-1, 6-5, 9-4, 6-4, 5-2
★ 110 points profit at Aintree
★ Grand National success at 7-1

CLASSIC FEVER AT HEADQUARTERS: A quiet start to the Newmarket Craven meeting today but Daqman prepares you for the Classic trials to come on Wednesday and Thursday, which spill over into Greenham day at Newbury on Saturday.


⭕ 3.35 Newmarket tomorrow (Nell Gwyn Stakes) James Fanshawe has declared Heritage House for the Nell Gwyn instead of the all-aged Abernant sprint on Thursday.

She is the outsider of the party but she brings to the form her five-lengths fourth to Romantic Style in the Bosra Sham over 6f here in November (heavy).

Romantic Style (Charlie Appleby) has already this month turned over odds-on Ramatuelle in the Imprudence at Deauville, making her stablemate, the unbeaten Dubawi filly, Dance Sequence (William Buick), an even shorter price for Wednesday’s trial and one of the favourites for the 1,000 Guineas.

‘Lazy at home; green and babyish,’ is how Aidan O’Brien described his Nell Gwyn contender, Matrika (Ryan Moore), and that was AFTER she’d won two races out of three! A much more mature filly now, she could lead Sequence a Dance..

⭕ 3.35 Newmarket Thursday (Craven Stakes) Charlie Appleby has won this twice in the last three seasons with Master Of The Seas (2021), who would go on to land a famous Woodbine and Breeders Cup double, and Native Trail (2022), who would win the Irish 2,000 Guineas.

Appleby’s Masar took the Craven in 2018 on his way to a surprise Derby win at Epsom, but his stable has Thursday’s early favourite, Native Approach, though hardly worth a rating yet after a class-5 maiden win at Kempton.

But he may be set for another early showdown with the Irish; look out for Ryan Moore’s pick of the Aidan O’Brien pair, Cambridge and Henry Adams.

And the French, with Andre Fabre’s Alcantor after his Thomas Bryon strike at Saint-Cloud in the autumn and subsequent narrow defeat in the Criterium International there on very soft ground.


⭕ 4.40 Newmarket today I am looking forward to the HQ action later in the week as discussed above but will mainly be keeping the powder dry on the opening day.

It’s still very early days of the season so it’s a chance to sit back and see how the bigger yards get on with some of their more higher profile runners.

I can’t resist a little win and place interest though on Double Jump here who is hovering around double figure odds on Betdaq Betting Exchange so makes appeal for a WIN 20 return from the win bet and WIN 10 from the place.

He won a Doncaster class 3 nursery in the back end on soft but also has form on good (same as today) when a decent fifth at Newbury on his second start.

There should still be more to come and he is proven at this level, unlike several of his shorter price rivals.

Eye Of Dubai and Brunel Nation both look far too short in the market.

Eye Of Dubai was a heavy ground winner at Catterick in a lower level class 5 and like Brunel Nation (who was a Chelmsford all-weather winner) he has yet to tackle turf ground as quick as this.


⭕ 5.23 Ffos Las David Maxwell silenced his armchair critics in style on Saturday with a superb 6th in the National on Ain’t That A Shame.

He teams up Mulinas for Paul Nicholls in the bumper and the pair should prove too strong for As Legends Have It.

A point winner on debut, his Chepstow second in a four runner race at Chepstow (where Maxwell also rode) didn’t immediately look strong form given the front three were split by just a length but the third Realco bolted home at Uttoxeter next time out and gave the form a huge boost.

Mulinas will again love the ground and can prove too strong for Stratford runner-up As Legends Have It.


⭕ 6.30 Newcastle I always think twice about supporting a horse under a penalty in novice company and ten times about supporting one under a double penalty but I can’t get away from hat-trick seeking Dyrholaey here.

The Archie Watson trained runner improved a ton from his winning debut at Chelmsford to storm home at Wolverhampton and I imagine Hollie Doyle will deploy the same catch me if you can tactics over tonight’s shorter trip.

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.
