FOUR NAPS UP IN A ROW AS ANOTHER BANKER OBLIGES: Daqman landed his fourth consecutive winning nap, and his third banker out of four, when Cut The Cards (WON 5-6) obliged yesterday after his best bets on Saturday, Sunday and Monday all scored at 5-4.
NOW IT’S 24 WINNERS IN 11 DAYS: With four winners on the day, he took his current score to 24 in 11 days, his successes including a double and a gamble on the bumper debutant Bennachie (WON 6-4). He made 36 points profit.
10 OUT OF 12 BIG BETS WIN IN ONE WEEK: Cut The Cards and Bennachie extended Daqman’s winning sequence of high-stakes bets to 10 out of 12 inside a week. The list of those double-figure staked now shows the last five up in a row:
WON 10-11 (July 17): 10pts ALONG AGAIN
WON 1-2 (July 18): 20pts TELESCOPE (banker nap)
WON 11-4 (July 18): 10pts GHASABAH

WON 5-6 (July 23): 20pts CUT THE CARDS (banker nap)
WON 6-4 (July 23): 12pts BENNACHIE
Your luck, and mine, can change with the weather. It’s a dangerous time. Rain on a sun-baked surface brings shock results. I’m tipping on firmish ground this morning, but what will it be later on?
Fortunately, we have BETDAQ on our side. We can take an early position for value, then review the race if conditions change and find an alternative.
It was good to firm, good in places, at Catterick this morning and, though it’s overcast, and rain is likely (30% likely), ‘they’ say it will be just a shower (famous last words).
If you fancy back-to-back wins for Lost In Paris (4.00) in the featured Summer Festival Handicap, I wouldn’t worry too much: he’s 14121 on the course over today’s trip on ground between ‘firm’ and ‘good to soft,’ and he’s 3lb lower than he carried when he won the race last year.
Economic Crisis, Tango Sky and Towbee have won on turf only with cut in the ground, so they are stand-bys not stand-outs this morning. The morning favourite, Angelito, has so far won only at Bath – only in class 5 – and has been slow away the last twice. Beat Lost In Paris in the Spring when my selection was not right and drifted to 33-1 SP.
Ryan Moore got a three-year-old home in the sprint at Lingfield (4.40) last year and could do the same again with Dangerous Age, 31133 on AW and a CD winner.
Worcester is already ‘good to soft’ and I would leave it at that, unless you can afford to go to Penn State college in America, where they offer a course in golf-greens grass management.
You need one to understand the Racing Post report on the watering of the Worcester track: Around 2 inches of irrigation applied last week and a further 6mm applied yesterday to counter evapotranspiration (I get a lot of that, unless I wear a short-sleeved shirt).
Tony McCoy deserts Lyssio (4.20), on whom he’s two out of three this summer, and swerves the Jonjo runner, Portofino Wasp, to take the mount on Rosie Probert. Tip of the day.
At Leicester, David Lanagan’s form in the last fortnight is 23311 and his sole starter, Progenitor (8.50), is two out of two going right-handed.
Sandown’s forecast suggests that Esher will avoid the rain, so I won’t be combing the prices with my cursor for odds about animals sired by Selkirk, Montjeu and Piccolo, all with runners in the lucky last (back to your kennel, Tommo).
I doubt Porcini will get the easy lead he was allowed at Newmarket last month and quirky Cosimo De Medici is running out of jockeys asked to try to get him to start with the others.
It seems to me that Bridgehampton (8.40), a CD winner at this time last year, has been gifted the race, significantly returning to the scene of success after a long absence. Jamie Spencer booked. Swerves Yarmouth tomorrow.
