NAP OF THE DAY: Prince Dundee, (1610 Hexham), 1pt win, 9/4 generally available.
Tried cheekpieces here last time and put in a career best when staying on well to win comfortably. He is up 5lbs and his main rival is Squire Viviani who fell at the last in that same race when a close second. He had been passed though by Prince Dundee and would have been clearly beaten, and he lay exhausted after the fall. Prince Dundee should be able to confirm the form.
Poyle Vinnie, (1520 Pontefract), 7/2: both Foolaad and Poyle Vinnie come here off last time wins and on similar marks to when first and fourth respectively in this race last year. Vinnie gets a 3lb pull and is nicely drawn to track his rival who may end up in an early speed duel with Sandra’s Secret. That may set things up for Vinnie to get his revenge.
Rubenesque, (1550 Pontefract), 5/2: this is one of the longest races in the flat season and is not guaranteed to suit many of these. Rubenesque however is a regular here, having finished 2nd, 5th and 3rd in a trio of marathon runs here last Autumn. Fit from hurdling, he can put his track knowledge to good use.
Run After Genesis, (1630 Windsor), 11/4: only got up in a blanket finish last time at Kempton but as a result is up just 4lbs. That was his handicap debut, after a break and after a wind operation. He is entitled to improve further and the third from Kempton has won since to frank the form. Windsor is a track with a good correlation to all weather form.
