Tuesday was a day to savour at myracing, as we enjoyed a day filled with successful selections! A NAP win like no other started off the day, before our Win Accumulator and Mega Accumulator closed it in style!
Naamoos in another parish
5/4 winning NAP Selection!
Tipped up at 5/4 last night, Naamoos was a very confident selection for the 1.30pm at Beverley. That being said, winning by seventeen lengths wasn’t quite how we envisaged the finish!
You’d be forgiven for thinking it was a race over hurdles given that winning margin, but no, it was a seven-furlong novice contest! In just two furlongs, Mark Johnston’s charge turned the race on its head. A 20p Rule 4 certainly wasn’t enough to dampen our spirits, not one bit!
Accumulating the rewards!
7/1 Win Accumulator and 40/1 Mega Accumulator successes!
After such an empathic success for our NAP, it was only right that our accumulators would follow in kind. Let The Heirs Walk (4/7) started off both multiples in style, winning as he liked for Tim Vaughan in the opening novices hurdle.
Naamoos (5/4) was the second leg in both of the accumulators and previously mentioned, it was a stroll in the park for Johnston’s charge. Andonno (11/4) kept the dream alive for the Mega, giving us a fright by holding on by a neck over a fast finishing rival.
It was just a ten minute wait for the Win Accumulator to land, as Aljady (11/10) showed them the way home at Beverley in grand style. Facing a field full of classy sprinters, he showed a smart turn of foot in the final furlong to grab the lead in the dying strides.
We were left to sweat on Present Chief (8/11), with all eyes on Jonjo O’Neill Jr. In the end, it was a very comfortable success for the progressive stayer, who travelled all over his rivals under a confident Jonjo. He was still on the bridle approaching the last, pushed out on the run-in for an impressive score.
We can’t forget about our American Tips either, as Monday was a great night in the United States! We landed both our NAP and Win Accumulator, with successful selections at both Finger Lakes and Thistledown.
Our NAP, Sweetest Party (11/8), got the party started at Finger Lakes, cruising home for an easy score. That was followed up by Chief Randel (11/4) making a winning stable debut for Jose Romero.
It was all left in the capable hands of Ricardo Feliciano, who expertly handled Candy Exchange (13/8) for a gutsy victory at Thistledown.
