NAPS HAT-TRICK FOR SHAMROCK: After The Real Article (WON 5-4) and The Minack (WON 11-4), Shamrock landed his third nap in a row yesterday with Sword Of Destiny (WON evens).

I have to look for Irish-breds today. Nicky Henderson has two at Southwell and they will do for me.

Tony McCoy gets off Mush Mir (3.20) but this is an ideal track for the front-runner; the boy McGrath only has to steer him round the left-hand roundabout that passes for a racetrack.

McCoy is back for Speed Master (3.55), whose form is impeccable so far; even when beaten he was in front of future winners.

I will complete a short-priced trio (I hope) with Bold Sir Brian (12.50 Carlisle), much better class as a hurdler and probably on song with his jumping now after a novicey start over fences.

Best each-way bet could be Teenando (3.30 Carlisle), who is four out of seven at Carlisle and whose stable is in form.

NAP: Speed Master (3.55 Southwell)
NEXT BEST: Mush Mir (3.20 Southwell)
EACH-WAY: Teenando (3.30 Carlisle)
DAQ TRIO: Bold Sir Brian (12.50 Carlisle), Mush Mir (3.20 Southwell), Speed Master (4.55 Southwell)
