Watching Clan Legend unseat when cruising was painful yesterday, thankfully there is a rare decent Sunday card in the UK to let us get back into the saddle.
The Daily Yankee:
Old Guard, (1520 Fontwell) 7/2: The feature race of the day is a face off between three well match horses on the book – but not in the market. Old Guard is officially 1lb well in, but is also arguably the runner here to have shown the most consistent form. At his best Lil Rockerfeller would be fancied to repeat his 2016 win here, but he was poor last time.
Jaunty Flyer, (1535 Southwell) 6/1: Warm favourite Kansas City Chief let us down badly last time and is still 7lb higher, he’s worth taking on. Rocky’s Treasure is another who let us down last time, so Jaunty Flyer has to look outstanding value. Ground out a dead heat last time, and this step up in trip should help on handicap debut. The Tim Vaughan stable is starting to show some form.
Abbey Street, (1635 Southwell), 7/2: Showed absolutely nothing in three maiden hurdles at 100/1 each time – but then dropped into a first handicap last time ran a mighty second off a mark of 95. The winner has since won twice again and is 25lbs higher, which sets Abbey Street’s 4lb rise into a generous context. Not much to beat here, and should do so if able to repeat the form of that last effort.
Quiz Master, (1655 Fontwell), 5/1: Has been running consistently without getting his head in front, and probably put up his best show yet when 3rd last time at Chepstow. That pretty much coincided with the start of a resurgence in form for the Tizzard yard. That has gathered pace since and can sweep this one to victory against a modest field.
