Top class Flat and Jumps action as the start of the Craven meeting at Newmarket dovetails with the rearrangement of previously waterlogged Fairyhouse.
The Daily Yankee:
Roller, (1610 Newmarket), 8/1: A tricky looking handicap but we like seasonal debut specialist Sinfonietta and progressive Yorkshire trained Roller. Ultimately it is Roller who has the scope to improve having looked a progressive type last year til a setback stopped his season in June. His two previous wins came off 6 and 3 month layoffs. This is 9 months but Mick Easterby is not the sort to send him down from Yorkshire with De Sousa up unless he fancied his chances.
Mjjack, (1720 Newmarket), 6/1: Karl Burke’s 4yo grey came a long way quickly as a 3yo, running superbly in 3 of Ascot’s valuable 7f handicaps. His debut this season was a highly respectable running on 5th in a listed race over an inadequate 6f. Back to handicaps and back to 7f, and with that run under the belt, this looks a big chance to land a big prize.
Uradel, (1750 Fairyhouse), 4/1: Makes his handicap debut for Willie Mullins off a fair mark of 132. Has returned from a 2yr break with a narrow win last summer in Listowel, and an impressive win at Naas last time. Looks to have a big chance of landing the money here.
Sunsetstorise, (1820 Fairyhouse), 11/4: Was an easy winner on debut for Gordon Elliott last time at Navan. Has been raised to a lifetime high mark, but now safely in the Elliott camp and so probably at a lifetime high level of form. Nina Carberry is just about the best booking in a race resticted to women jockeys.
