Another good winning nap yesterday courtesy of Nuns Walk (6/1), and 2 wins in the Yankee….can we end June with a boom?
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Move In Time, (1415 Curragh), 2pts win, 9/1 generally available
We don’t often head to an Irish handicap when there’s a race like the Northumberland Plate on offer, but the Rockingham is arguably Ireland’s top 5f handicap and it has attracted some top UK raiders. A pair of home based 3yos head the market but they’ll need to be super fast to deal with the lightning quick Caspian Prince and Justanotherbottle. But drawn between those two is another UK challenger in former Group 1 winner Move In Time. His rating has declined in his old age, but the sprightly 10yo romped in for in form Pail Midgley at Newmarket before running a blinder off this mark from a terrible draw at Musselburgh. Looks hugely well in, and has a massive chance.
The Grand Visir, (1330 Newcastle), 5/1: This late developing son of Frankel has improved noticeably for a step up in trip. His Haydock win last time was fantastic form and we need to weigh up the chances of close third Euchen Glen who ran too freely and has won since, versus the continued scope for improvement of The Grand Visir, and it’s that scope that wins.
Natural Scenery, (1405 Newcastle), 10/1: unfinished business for a mare pipped at the post in this last year. Gets in off a 2lb lower mark and has been freshened up after a Spring Dubai campaign. Looks to have been targeted for this. Favourite Withhold could be thrown in but improved a lot for a run last year so may need this debut.
Tylery Wonder, (1630 York), 12/1: an unusual 5f sprint for jump jockeys seems a bit quirky. That said, Tylery Wonder made all here last year for Tom Scudamore and looks to have been prepared for a repeat for the same pilot off a 4lb lower mark. Looked to be running into form when not quite lasting home over Newcastle’s stiff 5f before missing the break at Nottingham and sulking when unable to lead. A good break here and he can lead them all a merry dance once again.
