No joy in yesterday’s yankee where a good win for Gunfleet was left stranded by the disappointment of others. Today’s cards include a tricky boggy Bangor and plenty of dirt action, but its the better ground at Kempton that attracts the focus of our bets.
The Daily Yankee:
Church Leap (1320 Kempton), 9/1: Very lightly raced and a horse who has obviously had problems, but he ran pretty well after a huge layoff on his only run last year, and a rating of 104 could be ripe for picking. Support in the market will be significant.
Catching On (1410 Bangor), 4/1: Was a nap choice for us last week when unseating Richie McLernon at halfway. That was frustrating given the winner had previously been well behind Catching On. If he can find a rhythm, this testing marathon should suit.
Bugsie Malone (1530 Kempton), 11/1: Could leave us with custard pie on our faces, but Bugsie should relish the return to the scene of a good win last Spring, and further drying of the ground will play to his pace-setting strengths.
Beakstown (1605 Kempton), 5/2: One of the talking horses coming out of the Irish point-to-point scene this Autumn. With a good yard and takes up this shallow-water option having had an entry in the big listed bumper coming up at Newbury on Saturday.
Rolling 10 onto:
Bertie Barnes (1500 Kempton), 25/1: Came to this race last year with no form and off the back of a terrible Warwick run – well it’s deja vu, and hopefully he can repeat or better his 66/1 second in this race last year when well clear of the rest. Worth a go at the odds
plus Bugsie Malone (1530 Kempton) & Beakstown (1605 Kempton)
approx. 1,100/1 treble
