DAQMAN Sun: Sandown NAP


DAQMAN: FOUR WINNING NAPS IN FIVE DAYS: Daqman tried to ‘buy’ his Saturday bets with a winning 20-point supernap at the Curragh but his bigger-odds tips didn’t make it: Majestic Colt (4th 40-1 from BETDAQ 50.0) and Toy (2nd 5-1) came closest. Daqman has had a winner every day for 15 of the last 16 days.

WON 2-5 LITTLE BIG BEAR (Saturday supernap from 7-10 on BETDAQ)
WON 9-4 CHATEAU (Friday nap)
WON 4-5 SPANGLED MAC (Wednesday nap)
WON 11-8 STORM CASTLE (Tuesday nap)

10.5 BALLYDOYLE BET AT THE CURRAGH: Today’s nap is at Redcar but first Daqman explains why Aidan O’Brien and Ryan Moore could land a double or even a treble in the feature races at The Curragh, including one bet at 10.5 on BETDAQ.

⭕ 1.40 The Curragh (7f, 2yo fillies) Aidan O’Brien, celebrating the runaway win of Little Big Bear yesterday, could find another top 2yo player here, among the fillies this time.

He won this with subsequent Epsom Oaks winner Snowfall. Now he runs once-raced Unless, out of a Galileo mare who was sister to Churchill.

O’Brien’s nemesis of the Irish Oaks yesterday, Jessica Harrington, saddles Eternal Silence, who has a Moyglare entry but at this stage is without any track experience.

⭕ 2.10 The Curragh (Minstrel Stakes, 7f Group 2): Two colts have won this back-to-back since 2015 (Gordon Lord Byron for Tom Hogan and Romanised for Ken Condon).

Now Aidan O’Brien wants in on the act, as the entire Order Of Australia tries to follow up last year’s success under a penalty; he doesn’t have to carry one this time.

That puts him 8lb clear of most of his rivals and today also represents a drop in class after last year’s battles with the likes of Baaeed, Palace Pier and Alcohol Free, all at Group-1 level.

He led much of the way in the one-mile Queen Anne Stakes, in which the one-two 33 days ago were Baaeed and Real World. The fourth horse, Chindit, won the Sumer Mile at Ascot last week.

Just 6lb behind Order Of Australia is the mare Pearls Galore, who is also aged five but back to form with a double at odds-on over a mile this Spring, completed here at the Curragh in a Group 2.

Also a Group-2 mile winner, Real Appeal was last of five to Dr Zempf at Leopardstown on the last day but is rated on a par with Pearls Galore and his trainer, Jessica Harrington, landed a Curragh double yesterday, launched by the Irish Oaks winner.

The only three-year-old in this, Dr Zempf is unbeaten over 7f at Leopardstown this year, winning at both Listed and Group-3 level. Order Of Australia paid 12 for 10 in Betdaq Betting Exchange offers this morning.

⭕ 3.55 The Curragh (1m 1f fillies’ Group-2) Purplepay was never out of the frame on soft ground in France and, since she’s been moved to William Haggas at Newmarket, has been back there to win the Group-2 Sandringham at Chantilly (1m soft).

Wrapped around that were defeats in the Irish 1,000 and the Pretty Polly Stakes – both here -but she gets the 3yo’s allowance from Paddy Twomey’s Rumbles Of Thunder (gave Seisai a stone at Gowran Park) and another English raider, Sir Michael Stoute’s Potapova.

You’d think that both Haggas and Stoute, who has won this twice in the last nine years, would have been well warned before traveling that the ground will be at best ‘good’ (watered). They take their chances.

Stoute is known for improving horses at aged four and five, but there’s not much sign of that yet with Potapova, who is just 3lb higher for six races during 12 months racing. Colin Keane rides and might make a difference.

Aidan O’Brien runs three, with Ryan Moore riding the middle-distance filly, Lily Pond, who drops back in trip. Third in the Munster Oaks.

All bar one winner in the decade started in stalls 1 to 4, and I fancy Ryan Moore might try to make all on Lily Pond (gate 2), with the question mark of the race: has Purplepay (from the one stall) the ability to show a turn of foot at the business end on the better ground?

BETDAQ value 10.5 Lily Pond, 3.55 Purplepay.

⭕ 3.50 Redcar James Horton is 4-5 for an 80% strike rate at Redcar, and the jockey in his winning combo, P J Macdonald, is there today for the one ride on Encourageable, who rates the nap of the day at 2.58 on BETDAQ this morning.

Gorak was reckoned to be a stamina horse for this year, and started his season a 50-1 shot, 10th of 12, in a handicap over today’s trip. Encourageable makes his handicap debut.


2.10 The Curragh (win 12)

3.50 Redcar (win 12 nap)

3.55 The Curragh (win 20, win 10)
BET 2pts win LILY POND

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.
