To paraphrase Etta James:
“At last, my Yankee has come along, my losing days are over, and life is like a song…”
Well subscribers were singing at Naas yesterday as the Co Kildare based Yankee (Sunday Yankee: Have a Naas day…) finally landed the all-four full house that we had been waiting on.
Kicked off by easy nap winner Poker Party (11/2), he was followed by a nail biting photo win for Chosen Mate (advised 13/8) before never-in-doubt wins for Ming Dynasty (advised 3/1 after deductions) and Midnight Run (advised evens).
Collectively the acca paid 75/1 at SP and up to 125/1 depending on which early prices punters locked in. As a Yankee it paid out around 25 times total stakes.
Whatever the maths, it was a massive boost to both coffers and confidence as we go full steam ahead towards the Cheltenham Festival.
The Annual Cheltenham Guide will be out early next week, stay tuned for news on that, and to see if we can hit gold again with today’s picks.
