Thursday Yankee: Good Knight….

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY:  Copper Knight, (1350 Chester), 1pt win  5/2 generally available 

Won at this meeting in both 2016 and 2017.  Has improved to a lifetime high rating, but loves this track and has the crucial prime draw.  His return at Musselburgh was an eye catching 4th that could have been a whole lot better with some luck.  Looks hard to beat.

King Of Tonga, (1500 Chester), 5/1:  returned in good form when a narrow second at Beverley recently.  Also ran well when narrowly beaten here last year.  He’s the form horse and might have been a shorter favourite but for being drawn in stall 8.  That said, this distance offers the best chance to find a position before the bends and in Paul Hannagan he has a wily veteran on board who can be trusted to navigate wisely.

Gabrial The One, (1630 Chester), 7/1:  ran here four times as a 2yo so the course should hold no fears.  Managed to find trouble in running in a small field at Beverley on his return but stayed on with some promise.  Has a middle draw, but the market leaders are even wider, and he looks worth a punt at a meeting his owner and stable target so much.

Crownthorpe, (1705 Chester), 11/4:  ran well in good races in Ireland and at Ripon before surging clear to win in style at Beverley last time.  Gets a 5lb penalty here but that doesn’t look enough to stop him.  A good draw should ensure a handy racing position, and he should follow up.
