CAN DAQMAN REPEAT HIS LINCOLN ONE-TWO: Declarations for the Lincoln Handicap today will be followed tomorrow by Daqman’s ABC guide. The man who named winner and second last year gives you a taste of what he’s looking for, and where punters stand with the Grand National card.
Lincoln Handicap: Daqman, who named 62 feature-race winners in the 2021 Flat season, hopes to start as he means to go on with the Lincoln winner on Saturday. Last year he gave the correct one-two:
WON 9-2 HAQEEQY Lincoln Handicap
2ND 16-1 BRUNCH same race at 21.0 on BETDAQ
UPDATE: The last three winners have been trained by the top stables of William Haggas, Charlie Appleby and John Gosden.
Haggas intends to run three on Saturday: the ante-post favourite Mujtaba, plus Irish Admiral and Ametist.
TURNKEY WEIGHT: The last five winners have been four-year-olds carrying between 8st 12lb and 9st 4lb.
Gioia Cieca (Keith Dalgleish), Modern News (Charlie Appleby), Mujtaba (William Haggas) and Saleymm (Simon and Ed Crisford) fit the bill but full stats and ABC guide will be published tomorrow, with Daqman’s selections on Saturday.
Grand National: Daqman hit the jackpot in 2016 with 50.0 about the winner, Rule The World, and again with 40.0 Tiger Roll (40.0>11.0) in 2018.
Daqman’s first Grand National tip in this column was Silver Birch (WON 34.0) in 2007. Next week, he starts his National countdown.
TURNKEY WEIGHT: A runner aged eight or nine with 10st 7lb to 10st 13lb covers the years of Daqman’s big double.
Currently that includes Agusta Gold (Willie Mullins), Caribean Boy (Nicky Henderson), Court Maid (Thomas Mullins), Deise Aba (Philip Hobbs), Discorama (Paul Nolan), Good Boy Bobby (Nigel Twiston-Davies), Enjoy d’Allen (Ciaran Murphy), Highland Hunter (Paul Nicholls), Lord Du Mesnil (Richard Hobson), Mighty Thunder (Lucinda Russell) and Phoenix Way (Harry Fry).
Phoenix Way is the last one of the 92 declared inside the 40 limit, with Deise Aba on 41 waiting for a drop-out.
The following need more than one withdrawal: Blaklion, sixth last year for Dan Skelton (number 42); Poker Party, winner of the Kerry National for Henry De Bromhead (43); and Death Duty, winner of the Punchestown Grand National Trial for Gordon Elliott (44).
⭕ 1.00 Huntingdon Jeremy The Jinn and Cornicello dominate the BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE market for the opener but preference has to be for the former who brings the best form to the table.
He showed his liking for good ground when making a winning bumper debut at Market Rasen and has shown promise in his two starts over hurdles. He was beaten at odds-on last time at Taunton not helping his chance by a terrible blunder at the last.
Cornicello was a fair third over course and distance last time out in handicap company. His chance has to be respected but in 10 career starts – including two wins on the flat – he has yet to tackle good or better ground.
⭕ 2.30 Chepstow The Paul Nicholls overall form remains a concern, certainly by his high standards and following on from a Cheltenham blank.
7 winners from the last 46 stable runners but the shorter priced ones have generally been running well. Of those seven recent winners five were sent off favourite.
The resurgence will hopefully continue at Chepstow this afternoon with Grivetana who made a winning start to her career in France but was then a beaten odds-on favourite on stable debut at Wincanton when only fourth.
She should be a little more race savvy today and the opposition doesn’t look too strong.
Chabichou Dupoitou improved from a disappointing debut to finish a 33/1 third at Wincanton last time out which was much more like it but she’ll probably need to improve again.
Harry Fry is no doubt still on a high after Love Envoi’s Cheltenham success last week. He sets a puzzle here by running two. Ma Belle Noire is narrowly preferred on the basis of her Aintree form last October but she was a little disappointing subsequently and is now back from a break.
⭕ 5.17 Sedgefield Rebecca Menzies has her string in terrific form and can land this closing handicap hurdle with Chesterville.
The eight-year-old is tumbling down the weights and should be suited by the quicker ground.
Hopefully the switch back to hurdles will also reinvigorate.
DAQMAN’S BETS (staked to win 10 points)
BET 8.7pts win (nap) JEREMY THE JINN (1.00 Huntingdon)
BET 3.7pts win GRIVETANA (2.30 Chepstow)
BET 3.7pts win CHESTERVILLE (5.17 Sedgefield)
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.
