We’ll want to forget yesterday with a bit slipped, a saddle slipped and a nap who got chinned on the line by a horse who had disappointed in his previous run when a 2pt nap for us. Hopefully the tide is due to turn in our favour, to which end:
The Daily Yankee:
NAP OF THE DAY: John Honeyman, (1740 Ayr), 1pt win, 7/4 generally available
This Irish raider hacked up here yesterday and must have a massive chance under a 6lb penalty under the same useful apprentice. Didn’t look to take too much out of himself yesterday and if deemed ready to go again so soon by trainer Adrian Keatley then a repeat is surely on the cards.
Helovaplan, (1535 Ayr), 9/4: this fella won on Saturday beating our pick Club Wexford. They rejoin battle here where the 6lb penalty should bring them close to a dead heat. That said, Helovaplan is a 4yo with 3 wins in 10 runs, whilst Club Wexford is a 7yo and has 3 wins in 38 runs. We’re sure Club Wexford will win a couple this Summer, but he may struggle to reverse Saturday’s form with the progressive winner.
Bailarico, (1555 Yarmouth), 7/4: Won at Chepstow 8 days ago when spreadagling a field on stable debut. He won so well there that the 6lb penalty still leaves him 2lb well in and even that looks an underestimate. There is nothing in this field to be scared of and the odds should pretty much reflect the chances of him maintaining his Chepstow form.
Powerallied, (1605 Ayr), 2/1: penalised recent winners seem the theme for the day with Saturday’s Thirsk winner Tanasoq opposed by yesterday’s winner here Plough Boy. Whereas we are backing 6lb penalty carriers elsewhere today these two look worth taking on. Tawasoq’s win was his second in two years, he has looked tricky and his new rating is a lifetime high. Plough Boy is a 7yo also penalised up to a lifetime high for a narrow win. Powerallied was unlucky not to win for us in a better race at Chester, the form of which was boosted by 3rd placed El Astronaute’s subsequent York win. Only 2lbs higher he can beat the penalised pair.
