More than 10 times stakes returned on yesterday’s Yankee thanks to two good priced Hamilton winners and a non-runner. We’re staying up north today…
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Beverley Bullet, (1520 Beverley), 1pt win, 9/2 generally available
No stranger to this track given his name, but 0 from 7 so far. That said, all four of his lifetime wins have come on soft or heavy ground, and he has only twice had good to soft ground when here and was runner up both times. Comes here in great form, nicely drawn, but it’s all about the going. Trust this son of mudlark Makfi to add to his soggy CV.
Detachment, (1630 Beverley), 5/4: looks a warm favourite against a weak field. Overcame a troubled run to sweep home at Pontefract last week and a 6lb penalty looks unlikely to stop him. Ran well on softer ground the time before and has winning back history here. Lightly raced for a 5yo, he can progress for back to back wins.
Stringybark Creek, (1700 Beverley), 3/1: has had 40 runs in a short career, but has improved hugely winning 3 of 8 for new trainer David Loughnane. Stormed home a few days ago under this 7lb claimer at Catterick and can defy the penalty. Hasn’t much soft ground experience, but one runner-up effort on heavy bodes well.
Warrior’s Spirit, (1800 Beverley), 7/1: has been on an unrelenting downwards trajectory until first hinting at a revival after a midsummer break, then delivering on that under today’s amateur on soft at Carlisle last time. A 5lb rise is fair on the book, but the runner up, Edgar Allan Poe, was one of our winners yesterday which is a timely boost to the form.
