I have covid. Be careful not to touch the screen.
Well done to Gaz, Jake, Baciodilupo, and John987, harvesting those nice-priced winners yesterday. After a quiet autumn Jake is polishing that winner picking pen. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
I saw Robicheaux napped Rickety Gate yesterday and watched the race. Thought he'd benefit from a fence.
Ade sent me the attached pic of Northern Symphonie, who looks in superb shape. I remarked on this to Ade and he puts it all down to you syndicate members who have given him the time he needs. It looks very well worth it. It'll be great to see her next week.
Lonimoss Bareliere 2.35 Ludlow is the nap,well done yesterdays winners.I hope you get well soon Joe.
I was going to nap Rory the Cat 1.05 Musselburgh yesterday but looked at his breeding and when I saw he was not a sibling of Brian the Snail I went off him.
Equinus 2.25N, take it easy Joe.
Sedgefield 2.45 - Magical Arthur
Rest up Joe & don't go blowing any hairdryers up your nose.
Newbury 2.25 dolphin square ew
Just off to wash my hands. Get well soon Joe.
Best wishes Joe. I’m typing this with gloves on, just in case.
Mumbo Jumbo (ew) - 13.15 Newbury. Was also a track on an excellent album by Squeeze called East Side Story. Those were the days.
Solway Molly 15:55 Sedge Nap
Had the covids last month..after all these years I thought that I had escaped it…then it bit me…get well soon.
Nap: Emitom, 14:25 Hay
Get well soon Joe. I'm writing this while singing Happy Birthday.
Speedy recovery Joe.
well done yesterdays winners. Jake setting a fierce pace.
interesting from EGS. 50s Roland Pump is a crazy price for a stayers runner up + who got within Honeysuckle in a Hattons Grace.
Girls in skirts. Ludlow 2.00, is my selection.
Get well soon. Is it a new Scottish variant?
Been some marvellous tipping this month and I've been crap. I'll try
Nap Newbury 1425 Zanza
Stable in form and this beast can do one at the course.
My Bobby Dazzler - 13.15 Newbury
Get well soon Joe.
Get well soon Joe. Jake back in form - I'm glad I won last month when he was off his game a bit! As some will know - he has his own room in the winners Villa these days. I've not went in yet, might have a look today, but its such a labyrinth here it may be hard to find again.
Today i'll go for Hititi EW in the Newbury 14.25.
I always thought that Sergeant Wilson (N 12.05) was a curious purchase by Messieurs Munir et Souede. Do you think Dad's Army plays well in France?
Get well soon Joe.
Was tempted to nap Emma Hamilton out of Mount Nelson running at Ludlow, but landed on the previous race (13:25) with Tightenourbelts
Watching Willmount winning there, I'm just a bit sorry for Neil Mulholland. I know he thought last year that this was the best prospect he'd had in the yard for a good while, yet he was taken away from him and sent to Nicky Henderson (who has not had a horse for the owner before). Training is a rough old game sometimes.
