The Daily Yankee:
NAP OF THE DAY: Showmethedough, (1515 Newmarket), 2pts win, 7/1 generally available
We tipped this fella at Chester recently and he was just about the only Fahey-Koukash horse to disappoint. That said he ran an eye catching effort on only his 5th run. A long rangy horse he simply couldn’t go the speed around those tight turns. A stiff straight 6 or 7f in time should suit and he can improve massively now he has the right conditions.
Computable, (1520 Thirsk), 7/1 : We has a great win courtesy of Acclaim The Nation over this course and distance recently and he has a big chance here off a 5lb higher mark. That said he will have competition for the lead from the freegoing Harome, and that could set it up for Computable. He gets a 5lb pull for around 2l with Acclaim The Nation, but that was his seasonal debut and he is entitled to improve the most since that run. On the book he should go close, improvement puts him in front, and the race shape threatens to suit him ideally. Add in a nice draw and in we go.
Club Wexford (1555 Thirsk), 11/2: A recent Irish import who was very consistent when getting his favoured good ground. Ran ok in UK debut in unsuitable mud at Wetherby, and this speed favouring mike might be ideal. A mark of 74 looks pretty generous given he was in the mid 80smost of last year. The yard of Roger Fell has had a slow start after a great 2017, some have started to run a lot better lately and he certainly has a well handicapped horse here.
Hadley, (1810 Thirsk), 14/1: a hugely frustrating creature who needs everything to drop right if he is to win. The best time to catch him is a big field, where we get value, quick ground, and conditions that suit prominent racers. Thirsk is ideal, and a rail draw might just allow him to make all. Jockey Makin is a good booking and he ran his best race for a while when runner up here recently after wandering in the last furlong without the aid of the rails.
