DAQMAN VALUE IS UNBEATEN SINCE 2013: The Jumps list of Fortune Cookies was closed down yesterday on 21 winners for 112 points profit. Today the Daqman v Pricewise value challenge calls a halt with Daqman on 43 wins for 85 points profit (score 43-26). His target of 1,000 winners is now in sight in the 18th season of the competition, which launched in 2013.
VALUE NAP FOR MONDAY AT 5.9: Today Daqman follows a trainer in form for a value Southwell nap at 5.9
Daqman top for 17 seasons. The 2021-22 Jumps season finally yields to the Flat with the Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster on Saturday, and the Irish Lincolnshire on the same day.
The final Jumps score in Daqman’s challenge to Pricewise of the Racing Post was 43-26 in races the Post tipster nominated. So Daqman came top again for the 17th season in a row.
Total in the eight and a half years is now DAQMAN 976, PRICEWISE 437, which means that Daqman is long odds-on to pass the 1,000-winning-bets mark before the end of the Flat.
This is how the value challenge to his arch-rival now looks over the last 17 seasons. It shows that Daqman’s Flat score has varied between 54 and 105 winning bets. Just 24 will be enough.

⭕ 3.55 Southwell Ben Pauling had a winner at Cheltenham and six of his last seven runners (still standing) have been placed.
Here’s his Apple Rock, down a stone on the mark he was given after back-to-back wins at this time last year.
Placed in good company the last day. BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE 5.9 offers.
Another trainer in form is Richard Bandey (2-4) – both wins in the hands of Harry Bannister – but Brulure Noir, his new recruit from ‘Shark’ Hanlon, is said to need ‘heavy ground up to his knees.’
Wiliam Cody has no win-or-place form outside novice company, and no win form in novice company! He’s 0-8 overall.
⭕ 4.30 Southwell Miss M is a ‘hidden horse’. She loves Southwell but, strangely, has not been seen there since back-to-back wins in the summer of 2020.
She’s spent most of her time at her local track, Taunton, running well but, more importantly, getting her weight down by 38lb since those winning days. Last-chance saloon at 7.6 on BETDAQ this morning.
⭕ 4.40 Wincanton Lord Of Cheshire looks a back-and-lay bet, after his runaway success at Ludlow over placed horses which both won next time out.
We are relying on the judgment of 10lb-claimer Finn Lambert.
Finn is currently 2-5, making virtually all at Doncaster on Friday for today’s trainer, Nigel Twiston-Davies so, hopefully, we can rely on his judgment of pace.
State Crown didn’t improve a pound last year. He has the same rating he had eight races back in January, 2021.
For a horse whose best form is on the soft (his sole success as a novice last May), Man of Light has been kept to good ground, where he placed twice in the autumn.
3.55 Southwell (win 20, nap)
BET 4pts win APPLE ROCK
4.30 Southwell (win 12)
BET 1.75pts win MISS M
4.40 Wincanton (win 10)
BET 10pts win LORD OF CHESHIRE
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.
