Thursday Yankee: Silent fitness….

Two more winners yesterday, no great shakes from a profit perspective but a welcome uplift in strike-rate…

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY:  Silent Encore, (1440 Warwick), 1pt win, 10/1 generally available 

This novice handicap looks likely to revolve around the hugely improving Cooper Square. He is clearly very well in, but he loves to clout a fence and looks too short given his jumping issues at this trappy track. Silent Encore looks like he could be useful at 3m on this good ground having hinted plenty over shorter trip and being unlucky when badly hampered early last time.

Checkitout, (1410 Warwick), 3/1:  has some experienced rivals to overcome.  They are rated in the low 120s, and whilst Checkitout doesn’t have a rating yet, he finished close to horses rated in the high 120s last time.  That was his racecourse debut in a maiden at Chepstow.  That race is working out super well, and he must be expected to improve, which could take him past his more exposed rivals.

Coup De Pinceau, (1545 Warwick), 7/4:  has run well in four novice chase including pitched into Grade 2 and Grade 1 company.  This is his first handicap chase and a mark of 137 looks generous on form and on his hurdles career.  This race shouldn’t take much winning and he should deliver.

Kilbaha Lady, (1730 Chelmsford), 3/1:  recent course winners Amor Fati and Compass Point have to shrug off weight rises.  That’s less of an issue for Kilbaha Lady as she continues to avoid a hike by avoiding a win.  That said, she keeps finding trouble and coming fast but too late.  Here though she looks perfectly drawn to finally land the win she has long been threatening.
