Racing fans had only Punchestown for entertainment yesterday, but for blog subscribers that was plenty.
Headline nap Lady Writer advised at 8/1, (“Sunday Yankee: Follow the Lady..“) needed every yard of the three miles but was on top where it mattered to maintain a good run for our naps in 2019.
Earlier Yankee opening leg Sinoria showed similar grit to land odds of 6/1 in the novice hurdle.
A momentarily very exciting day frustratingly ended in respectable but defeated runs for the last two Yankee legs, denying the big time multipliers, but six times money stakes was still a fair return on that bet.
No racing til Wednesday. We will bring forward this week’s Cheltenham Countdown piece for tomorrow when we will look at flu-based strategies !
