WHISPER THE WINNING NAP AS DAQMAN RUN CONTINUES: Daqman gave a big shout to Whisper at Pontefract yesterday, and the nap duly obliged, eased down, for another day of profit. Here are the last three Daqman days:

Yesterday’s nap
✅ WON 10-11 ANGEL’S WHISPER (nap)

Monday’s strike
✅ WON 7-1 MINELLACELEBRATION (Summer Cup, Uttoxeter)

Sunday big-race double
✅ WON 81-10 FANCY BLUE (French Oaks from 10.0 on BETDAQ)
✅ WON 5-1 DEJA (Old Newton Cup from 9.0 on BETDAQ)

SIX-RACE ANALYSIS TONIGHT AT NEWBURY: Daqman decides to have a flutter at low stakes in half a dozen tricky races at Newbury tonight, hoping to pay for most of it with a nap at Ripon this afternoon.

HOT TIPS TOMORROW: TWO TOP MEETINGS: It’s Dante day at York tomorrow and the opening of the July Meeting at Newmarket which continues until Saturday. Back to the Pricewise value challenge, with Daqman 16-6 up.


⭕ 4.40 Newbury Richard Hannon goes for a hat-trick in this race but, strangely for one who targets them, Four Clubs is not (yet anyway) entered in any of the big Sales races. Query that one, then.

⭕ 5.10 Newbury The hat-trick-seeking trainer in this – the fillies’ version of the opener – is Richard Spencer, who saddles Ocean Eyes (BETDAQ 4.7 early mouse). Now, she does have entries in two Sales races, plus the Super Sprint here at Newbury (Sunday week). Tick that one, then.

⭕ 5.40 Newbury Rasheeq is the only CD winner in this sprint field but he’s also a CD loser. That was was a month ago and has prompted a first-time tongue-tie.

Paul Midgley seems keen to win it, booking the champion jockey for Saluti and star claimer Megan Nicholls for Buccaneer’s Vault.

The ground may not be firm enough for Saluti and Buccaneer’s Vault, eight now, has scored only in classes 5 and 6 since 2018.

The sole occasion James Doyle has ridden Whelans Way, the combo was third in a big field at Ascot in September off 4lb higher. Heavy backing this morning (in to 3.2 on BETDAQ).

Should have come on a bit since that try as a three-year-old against older horses and there’s no doubt that Roger Teal (two winners from his last three runners) has him down for this prize, with visor fitted for the first time.

If the ground eases quite a bit you’ll need to take an offer about Eye Of The Water, third on the course in a class-3 big field on heavy, and similarly placed in another cavalry charge here behind Rasheeq when also as a three-year-old against older horses.


⭕ 7.10 Newbury Late-career lifts sought today for two John Gosden three-year-old stars on breeding and on valuation but not yet on the track, Nova Roma and Darain.

Nova Roma (Frankie Dettori) has his third race, trying to justify his lineage, by Golden Horn – who was horse of the year at his age – out of a mare by Shamardal, doing rather well for Godolphin as sire of Pinatubo, Victor Ludorum, Earthlight, Blue Point, Mukhadram..

Nova Roma got off the mark at Windsor last month and the question for odds-on backers is whether he can give nearly a stone (12lb, in fact) to Sea The Style, a William Haggas filly by Sea The Stars. BETDAQ 6.9 this morning.

⭕ 7.40 Newbury Imagine paying 3.5,000,000 guineas for a yearling and it doesn’t even get to the track as a two-year-old. Then along comes the lockdown!

So his first run is here today, July 8, nearly 39 nail-biting months after he was born, brother to Too Darn Hot, So Mi Dar and Lah Ti Dar.

Connections must themselves have imagined a start like Too Darn Hot’s: four wins in a row, taking in the Solario, Champagne Stakes and Dewhurst.

The colt in question is Darain. His trainer, of course, John Gosden; jockey, Oisin Murphy. No specific big-race entries. Could be anything; or nothing at all.

William Haggas, who had that dangerous looking filly in the previous race, Sea The Style, has the main threat here, too, with Divine Consent.

Haggas is on a hat-trick, four from six, after winners at Thirsk and Leicester in the last two days. Speculative 11.5 in case Darain falls!

THE NAP William is 42% at Ripon, and should already have had a winner on the Yorkshire track with King ‘s Castle (1.40). When booking Danny Tudhope, his strike rate rises to 63%.

The Camelot colt, whose dam was half-sister to a St Leger winner, is expected to improve for his 10-furlong Beverley win of three weeks back and for stepping up to 1m 4f today. BETDAQ 2.44.


⭕ 8.10 Newbury There are handicap debuts here for Majestic Noor (another Gosden-Dettori; made all at Yarmouth) and Red Poppy (another Haggas, now upped to a more appropriate trip).

Sorrel has already tried a handicap at this level, promising at Goodwood when badly drawn, and Sir Michael Stoute is having a better month (5-8 in four days, starting a week ago).

The one-two at Goodwood when Sorrel was third have both won since. She is another very well bred, by Dansili out of a half-sister by Dalakhani to an Irish Derby runner-up.

Ryan Moore got another big pay-packet when Love dominated the Oaks for Ballydoyle but still has a high strike-rate for Stoute. Current form together: 12414221. Sorrel: 4.3 taken on BETDAQ.
