PUNTERS MUST PICK VALUE FOR MONEY: Daqman checks out races at Haydock, Newbury and Nottingham today, with Newbury the scene of trainers protests at poor prizemoney. No one represents the punter.. but Daqman points up value for money on BETDAQ on a daily basis. It’s the only way to bet.
Now even racehorse trainers are on strike. The glut of weekend fixtures has spread the butter too thinly and no runners have been declared – not a one – for the last race at Newbury tomorrow.
Punters have suffered weekend after weekend. Today there are 289 horses at six English meetings but only 11 of the 41 races have eight or more runners
Eight meetings tomorrow currently have 387 probables, with no declarations for the fillies’ novices’ stakes (4.39 Newbury).
That’s where money talks, or rather lack of money talks: trainers withdrew all 13 declared because total prizemoney for the race was too low at £5,300 (winner £3,500).
The Trainers Federation denies the equivalent of concerted ‘industrial action,’ claiming the withdrawals were made individually but there were warnings from owners and breeders that similar action would be supported.
⭕ 3.10 Nottingham (6f handicap) Able Kane, who is due to go up 10lb for a six-lengths win at Ffos Las 10 days ago, gets in with just a 5lb penalty.
Juan Les Pins is also carrying a 5lb penalty instead of a 7lb rise but he’s weighted on an even keel for this hat-trick bid, with Frederick Larson’s claim; so no extra at all! But can Freddie handle the job?
Juan les Pins won at Newbury on his first appearance since changing stables from Ed Dunlop to Michael Appleby, and looked value at 4.5 BETDAQ offers this morning.
Parisiac seemed hard done by, rated 94 because of a soft-ground debut win and then fourth to Flaming Rib at the backend of his 2yo career, again on soft.
No sooner had the handicapper stepped in and dropped him 5lb after his Hamilton defeat at odds-on in June than he was gelded, after being described as ‘a bit tricky.’ So we don’t know what ‘he’ is now.
The same applies to Wowser, a low-level Bath winner when hooded in the autumn, now gelded after an inauspicious reappearance run at Leicester.
A big beast, Recall The Show has needed time but his better efforts last season include finishing eight lengths behind Able Kane at Leicester (good to soft).
Tothenines and The Dunkirk Lads (can be unruly at the start) are class-5 winners who need to step up. Both were beaten favourites trying better class company the last day.
⭕ 3.53 Newbury (Rose Bowl, 6f 2yo) Chateau, who finished well, fourth, in the Windsor Castle Stakes, should relish this extra furlong.
The one-two in the Windsor Castle were Little Big Bear, who could run in the Anglesey at the Curragh tomorrow, and Rocket Rodney, who followed up impressively at Sandown on the first of this month.
Cold Case is highly regarded but none of the nine behind him at York in early June have been able to score since.
Legend Of Xanadu scored back to back over 6f at Redcar and Epsom in the Spring but ran too freely to cope with the step up to 7f in the Chesham.
Kodiac colt Rogue Lightning beat a subsequent winner on the July Course on his only start, and looks the danger to Chateau (Betdaq Betting Exchange 3.35 taken).
⭕ 4.10 Haydock (6.5f handicap) Haydock is forecast good to firm, with showers. That sounds like a red-flag combination, particularly for a sprint. In any event, I fancy opposing the favourite, Jilly Cooper.
She has won only her maiden, always a bad sign (she’s 1-12) and, after six places without winning, at 5f, 5.5f, 6f, 7f and 1m, beaten favourite twice, we can assume she hasn’t got a trip and hasn’t got the application, whatever the trip of the day is!
She didn’t look capable of beating Poet’s Magic on similar terms to today when they met at Chester; Poet’s Magic made virtually all.
Social Contact has also won just the once and her SPs in this season’s starts (16-1, 28-1 and 40-1) suggest that it’s hard to expect anything of her right now.
Outside a solitary win on AW, Rani Of Jhansi has been missing strike badly: form figures 3323244.
Breaking Light was a 50–1 maiden loser the last day but wind surgery may have helped, just as a tongue-tie might set Cet Horizon back on track.
The showers may also help the Nottingham (good to soft) winner in October, who aimed high first run back, leading for a while in the Pretty Polly at Newmarket won by With The Moonlight. Clearly they could see a future on the Horizon!
Piffle, who landed back to back wins last summer, was aimed high after (Sales race and soft-ground Listed). She had no luck in running on her reappearance but that was in April; the market should help us decide whether she’s now ready to progress her career.

What are points? Points facilitate a staking plan, which is the secret to creating profit. One point is whatever you choose: a pound, a euro, or whatever ….
Start with a bank and decide how much you can afford to lose over a period of time, and determine the size of your bets accordingly. Daqman makes this variation every day.
