A nice winning nap yesterday courtesy of Smiley Bagel, and we look to build a run heading into Guineas weekend…
The Daily Yankee:
NAP OF THE DAY: Kinglami, (1630 Chepstow), 1pt win, 5/2 generally available
Veteran sprinter has run so often that he is now pretty easy to assess. Has 5 career runs here, 2 poor efforts on quick ground, but wins off 66 and 70, and a runner up off 78 when the ground has been soft. Gets a heavy surface now, which he also won on off 76 at Ffos Las, and his mark back down to 69 looks ready for harvesting
Bombero, (1400 Chepstow), 7/2: most of these have form or fitness to prove, not so Bombero, a heavy ground winner last year and already twice a runner-up in soft and heavy ground this spring. This Chepstow bog should suit and us possibly more trustworthy than quirky favourite Astute Boy who worrying never saw hurdles after transferring to Harry Fry.
Royal Brave, (1440 Musselburgh), 5/1: These 5f sprints at Musselburgh can favour the high numbers on the stand side, and with blazing pace in stall 14 from Suwaan, the favourites in stalls 1 and 2 could be stranded in mid track. In contrast Royal Brave is beautifully boxed in 13, and is a real specialist here with figures of 3533113125. That last 5th was here on unsuitable heavy ground last time but still showed promise.
Frelia, (1915 Cheltenham), 10/3: mares hunter chases has to be one of the lowest strength in depth in racing. Frelia has not been in great form in point to points lately, but she won this by over 50l last year, and that proven liking for conditions is a huge plus in a hotch potch of an event.
