Another good day yesterday as Lincoln Tale (3/1), landed the nap at Beverley and ensured a return of over 4 times money staked on the Yankee after the earlier win of Kylie Rules (7/2).
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Aljady, (1425 York), 2pts win, 7/1 generally available
A typically strong York sprint handicap. Top weight Intisaab looks very interesting, but even he may have to give best to Fahey trained 4yo Aljady. A winner on debut in both previous seasons, he looked one to follow last year with after two wins were followed by a cracking effort over 7f at Goodwood and a runner-up effort at Ascot to a ridiculously well handicapped rival. With another winter under the belt, this debut looks a well planned target.
First Eleven, (1350 York), 11/2: not always consistent as a 3yo, but the strapping type who looks sure to be a better 4yo. His best efforts came in strongly run handicaps on a decent surface, and gets that here. Likely to be in Group company as he season progresses and can take this handicap on route.
Space Blues, (1605 York), 5/1: has disappointed somewhat in two runs this season, but the step down in trip could be the brainwave for this smooth travelling sort. The stable often do well at this meeting, and although carrying top weight it would be a surprise if he couldn’t win off this good rating. James Doyle steers and he should go well.
Starcaster, (1705 York), 7/2: has moved to the shrewd yard of Jedd O’Keefe this year and almost paid his way immediately when a fine second on seasonal debutvat Thirsk. The front two pulled clear that day and the winner has won again since. The booking of Jamie Spence is a plus and he should go close.
