JOHNB had a 3-1 winning Nap on Friday and was also delighted to see Willie Mullins close in on the Irish Trainers Championship.
Mullins was tipped at 5-2 as a double-stake pick by our man and he’s now as short as 1-5. So there’s easy cover there for anyone who chooses that path.
Well done all who posted winners on Friday and let’s hear your Saturday tips and chat.

There hasn’t been a great deal between Bapaume and Mega Fortune so it could prove crucial for the Trainers Championship. Willie Mullins’ horses have been running well this week although not getting much luck and the favoured Mullins horses have been getting beat by other horses from the yard. In four meetings between these two it’s 2-2 with the latest meeting at Cheltenham seeing just a short head between them, the faster ground and the course should suit Bapaume more and even Gordon Elliott has doubts about the course for Mega Fortune.
Here we have a filly that has a lot to live up to, she is held in high regard and is bred to be a very smart sprinter and bred to be ready early and with a trainer who can ready a horse. She cost £205,000 as a yearling and is expected to go well and it is telling that Richard Fahey runs her against the colts on debut receiving 5lb. Paul Hanagan and Tony Hamilton are meant to be joint main jockeys for the Fahey yard but Hanagan seems to be getting the plum rides.
This twice raced colt is rated 90 and open to a lot of improvement he should take a lot of beating in what is a weak race for a horse with his potential, the step up in distance will suit and the surface shouldn’t be a problem.
