    Naps Comp for April Most of us are going through a difficult time at the moment and whilst taking part and visiting the forum is not on the top of the list of priorities for people, here at Punters Lounge we realise how much a bit of normality can help. We have members from all over the world and our thoughts are with everyone. Racing like many other industries are struggling but we have taken the decision to carry on with the Daily Naps Competition and as a reward to our loyal members Paul is increasing the Prize Money on offer for the month of April. The new proposals we spoke about will be coming in although we are going to leave out the KO Cup competition until May as it may be difficult for 30 players trying to pick 3 selections each on the 4th of April when we may have limited action. The qualifying places in March will remain in place for the next KO Cup Competition. We will accept bets from any racing from around the world during April and all bets outside of Europe will be settled at the Industry SP which appears in the ATR or Sporting Life results section. (*Racing Post publish dividend prices which will be different from the Industry SP) We realise backing horses from the other side of the world is not everyones cup of tea and fully understand those that choose to sit it out until things get back to normal. I will continue to put the daily threads up and try and pinpoint what action is talking place. Just be aware of the off times, some US and AUS Racing will be very early in the morning. Race times will be based on the UK 24 hour clock, anything after midnight will count towards the following day regardless of when the meeting started. Hopefully in four weeks time we will have some better news, in the meantime we wish you all the best. Prize Money For April 1st: £100 2nd: £75 3rd: £50 4th: £25 Tipster with most winners with at least £10 profit will receive a £50 bonus All winners will also receive Punters Lounge Merchandise. Many thanks

So for April we are delighted to tell you that we are DOUBLING our normal monthly added value to £300 for our poker league. The league runs for 4 legs on Wednesday nights, starting time is 8.10pm, with a 10 minute late registration period on top of this. All games are played in the PokerStars Home Games PL Poker Club.

Your top 3 scores of the 4 legs will count towards your league total. We will be using the usual PL league format, which will be updated in this thread. (The PokerStars own league scores will not be used.) Formula is -Log(position/Entrants)x100 To help boost numbers overall and in particular in the final leg we are continuing the system of doubling the number of entries used in the calculation in leg 4 ( * so if 12 entries the formula will use 24 entrants). This will increase the number of points available in the final leg to make it more competitive.

Plus I am placing a weekly £10 bounty on my head (PL-AvonGirl). I'll set aside the remaining £10 for the winner of whatever game we play in the week 5 fun week (and if I either miss or win a weekly leg I'll add that £10 bounty money to increase this). All added amounts will be payable via PayPal at the end of the league. Big thank you to SirPuntalot and Punters Lounge for the added funds. The league winner will also get Punters Lounge merchandise. See below. Punters Lounge Merchandise You can win unlimited Punters Lounge merchandise, even if you have won them before. It consists of our logo mug and pack of 10 pens. Good luck! League Table

    Thanks BH and Paul I'm sure most of us are already going stir crazy after a few days stuck indoors. I know I am .... 😀 I'm on the laptop about 14 hours a day desperately looking for something to fill the time ! I didn't really intend to bother with the overseas racing but after a few days I found myself having a casual glance and the Hong Kong meetings look OK for UK & Ire punters .... lots of handicaps and not many tracks. Might have a crack at that while they're still racing. Main thing though ....... everybody look after yourselves ....... let's hope we all get throught it and things return to normal in a few months 👍

    I had a look at the various countries that are still racing and I think Hong Kong may be the best one to concentrate on as there's regular meetings and it doesn't look 'alien' to UK punters. I can't make head nor tail of all the Claiming Races in the US ! HK seem to race every Sunday and Wednesday, there's only 3 tracks but but only 2 tracks are racing during April There are 9 meetings in April The races appear to follow a similar structure to the UK and Ireland with some Group Races and lots of Handicaps. The horses have Official Ratings which helps a lot ........ and the Racing Post carries the form in a format that we're used to Here's the April fixture list https://racing.hkjc.com/racing/information/English/Racing/Fixture.aspx?CalYear=2020&CalMonth=04

    As always, many thanks @BillyHills for keeping the site and comps running 👍. This is the best-run and most enjoyable forum on the internet, and I want it to keep going. My recent efforts on South Africa venues have been awful, and I don't expect I'll be any better at the US ones, but I want to keep supporting this site so I'll give it a go! 😁

    Racing Chat-Sat 28th March

    Thankfully Australian racing was able to continue after a scare earlier in the week and their looks to be a few betting opportunties on the main card at Rosehill plus the metro card in Victoria which this week is at Bendigo another country track after it was at Mornington last week. Rosehill race 5 4.10am Going to take two against the field. Villami was really good 1st up in a Listed contest and if she can buiuld on that performance than she has to be bang there off a light weight. She has form with Loving Gaby in the spring which obviously stacks up well. I mentioned Kementari last week when he was set to appear in The Galaxy. They took him out and have decided to aim him at this G3 instead. Could be a good move if he is anywhere near the form he showed before he went to stud and as I mentioned last week he trialled very well earlier in the month. Villami @ 3/1 with William Hill Kementari @ 5/1 with Bet365 Rosehill race 6 4.50am The G1 Tancred Stakes features plenty of familiar names to UK and Irish punters and also those who were watching Rosehill last week as the front 3 in the betting all ran last week. Verry Elleegant is not surprisingly the favourite after her great run when being beaten by Addeybb, with Avilius back in 3rd. They are up to 2400m here, but I can't see the form being reversed. Hugh Bowman said he was happy with how Avilius performed, but he looked ordinary to me and he just doesn't seem the same horse as last year. Verry Elleegant won the ATC Oaks over this trip so that isn't a concern and she can win, but I am going to chance a couple at bigger odds. Mustajeer was last year's Ebor winner and he was pretty poor in the Melbourne Cup after that. He is now in Australia full time and his two runs back from a spell have been good efforts as he won 1st up over 1900m and then finished 2nd to a very progressive horse last time out. Up to 2400m will be more suitable and the Ebor was essentially a G1 handicap in all but name. I think he can run a good race here. In the same colours I also like Danceteria at a big price. He was trained by David Menuisier over here and ran a really good race when 4th behind Enable in the Eclipse. After that he won a G1 at Munich before a trip to the Cox Plate which didn't go well. That can be ignored though and I think he is slowly coming to hand this prep. He only beat one home 1st up, but last time he travelled well before fading in the straight in testing ground. It won't be as soft here and with blinkers on for the first time I can see him running well given his European form is very strong. Mustajeer @ 8/1 with William Hill, Paddy Power and Betfred (e/w) Danceteria @ 25/1 with BetVictor and Betfred (e/w) Rosehill Race 9 6.50am Star of the Stars won a G3 over 1100m 1st up and should enjoy the step up in trip. He has a superb record at Rosehill where he has won 4 of his 5 starts and looks set to travel just behind the speed from his draw in 8. Star of the Seas @ 100/30 with William Hill Bendigo Race 1 1.15am The slight concern is that Grand Promenade is having his 7th start this prep and that is fairly unusual in Australia, but his win at Caulfield over this trip after being trapped 3 wide with no cover for most of the race was really good. This looks a good race for him. Grand Promenade @ 7/5 with Paddy Power Bendigo Race 6 4.30am Going to have 2 bets against the field in this. Twitchy Frank has been so consistent since his last win just under a year ago at Caulfield. He has mainly run in his native Tasmania since and gone close in some decent races. He should go well again here. Mirette has a touch of class about her although she was very disappointing 1st up in the Echuca Cup. She has run well against Princess Jenni a couple of times last year and that is strong form. She has a good 2nd up record so hopefully she can improve here. Twitchy Frank @ 6/1 with Betfred (e/w) Mirette @ 12/1 with Betfred (e/w) Bendigo Race 8 5.50am The big race of the day and I have to be with Princess Jenni. I tipped her up at Moonee Valley last week and on the face of it she was a bit ordinary, but she was not suited by the way the race was run and nothing was really finishing from the back on the card. This hopefully should be run to suit and she has a really good chance for me. I am also going to cover Debt Agent who set some great finishing sectionals 1st up at Flemington earlier in the month. He was a good horse in Singapore prior to coming over here and he looks capable of running a good race in this. Princess Jenni @ 100/30 with Betfred Debt Agent @ 15/2 with Betfred (e/w 4 places)

    Just looking at the handicap chase at Clonmel tomorrow at 4.30 and there are 3 reserves, two of them at single figure prices Puts me off spending time on the race when I don 't know if they're going to run or not I hope we never go down the 'reserves' path in the UK

    BTTS+Deportivo Ocotal to beat ART Municipal Jalapa at 5.50 with Betfair Stats say that Ocotal beats Jalapa most of the time at home and also that Jalapa scores at least one goal. Frequent result is 2-1 Ocotal. I think it might be wise to think about the stats sometimes and this could be one of those times.

    Mr Trotter, thats the training track in Shenzen China, its quite new and as far as I know used mainly for trialing. The Mainland Chinese Government are looking into allowing racing but...I dont see it being a betting option in the new few years.. Stick with Happy Valley and Sha Tin, you will enjoy..Next Sunday theres a couple of G1's at Sha Tin..Ante Post prices are available with some UK sites.. Happy Punting.. The other track referred to on the fixture list link is Conghua

    The next matches scheduled to take place are coming up tonight with Jalapa vs Juventus Managua at 11pm BST (yes, daylight saving has kicked in!) and CD Walker Ferretti vs Chinandega FC at midnight. A 1-0 win for Real Madriz last night delivered us a 100% record to start our coverage of this league. Let's hope it continues tonight. I'll look to get a preview up of one of these games later on. Give us any bets you're leaning towards! @Xcout, fancy getting on board and helping me out?
