Farrington to the fore! A run of six winning naps out of nine

Farrington to the fore

A run of six winning naps out of nine enabled Farringdon to rise to the top of the latest 30-day Napchecker table.

The Morning Star’s tipster currently boasts a 37 point profit for the 30-day period between 14 March and 12 April. Second, with a 16.8point profit stands Patrick Weaver of the Star with the Daily Telegraph’s Marlborough third with a 6.8point gain.

Farringdon’s run began modestly enough with the success of 6/4 Mercers Court at Huntingdon on 28 March, followed, two days later by the Southwell win of 5/2 Pearl Spectre. Things then began to heat up thanks to the victories of 20/1 Colourbearer at Chelmsford City on 31 March and the following day’s success of 13/2 City Supreme at Newbury. Fortunate George (6/1, Wincanton, 4 April) and Mogestic (9/1, Newton Abbot, 5 April) ensured the bookies continued to suffer at Farringdon’s expense.

Second placed Patrick Weaver posted a better than 50% strike-rate (15 wins from 29 naps) and also enjoyed a sequence of 7 winning naps out of eight between 1 and 9 April. This run included the success of 4/1 Jokers And Rogues (Kelso, 2 April).

Takingrisks, a winning 5/1 nap at Carlisle (26 March) was the highlight of Marlborough month. The Daily Telegraph’s tipster finished the period under review in third position ahead of Fortunatus of the Sheffield Star and the Blackpool Gazette’s Simpson, who both posted small profits. Both enjoyed a lucrative day at Ludlow on 5 April; 10/1 Red Tornado was the stand-out win for Simpson, while Tugboat’s 6/1 success brought joy to followers of Fortunatus.

The Sunday Mirror’s Nutting stands clear at the top of the 360-day table with a 15.8point profit. The Mail’s Robin Goodfellow (4.6points) and The Duke of the Yorkshire Post (1.9points) are second and third.
