Tuesday Yankee: Annie has the power…

A bit of West Country action from Taunton provides the core of today’s action, supplemented by one from very much farther west in Clonmel.

The Daily Yankee:

Tell Me Annie, (1350 Clonmel), 6/4:  A latecomer to rules racing after showing promise in two unbeaten points last Spring.  She is well bred and looked to have talent when a staying on 4th on debut.  She should improve for that, allowing her to confirm form with Countess Cathleen, whilst her other market rival Decision Time has both a penalty and a 4 month break to overcome.

Oscar Rose, (1440 Taunton), 5/4:  This strapping mare was a good staying on 4th at Doncaster last time after a troubled run.  That form is golden, and she has 10lbs to spare here on main rival Chilli Filli according to the ratings. A decent little race, but Fergal O’Brien has been itching to unleash Rose since that Donny effort and she should be a cut above here.

Our Merlin, (1545 Taunton), 11/4:  Now 3st higher than when starting an Autumn winning run, but recent efforts in decent races suggest he can still win off this new level.  This is a tough little race, but jockey Harry Cobden gets on well with the horse and should have the nous to sit behind a potentially brutal early pace.

Jayo Time, (1615 Taunton), 9/2:  Trainer Kerry Lee is pretty adept at refreshing veterans.  Her Jayo Time is still only 9, but he has fallen a long way since being unlucky not to place at a Cheltenham festival off a mark of 137.  Just 6 runs ago he was on 130, and now turns up here off just 108.  Form like a postcode (9PFP4F), is worrying, but the last F was set to be a pretty good second, and if he can build on that then a touch of his old class should suffice in this grade.
