NAP OF THE DAY: Little Clarinet, (2045 Curragh), 1pt win, 5/1:
This mare has looked in good form all season registering figures of 244 in huge field at Navan and here the last twice. Looked to have come through to win her race here last time when desperately unlucky to be impeded by loose horses (in a flat sprint), and knocked back to fourth. Runs here off just a pound higher and can get the win she obviously deserves.
Puds, (1935 Goodwood), 3/1: won well at this idiosyncratic course off 86 two runs ago. Has since finished a strong second to a well ridden winner off this new mark of 90. Might have gone close there had tactics fallen differently, and she can outclass these opponents off top weight.
King Crimson, (1945 Bath), 7/1: when on song he is a bullet sprinter who can be hard to catch. Comes off one such win at Brighton and is just 4lbs higher. There are other early pace angles here but he should be the quickest. Likes this course with form figures here of 1412, the two wins being in fast ground like today’s.
Wedding Date, (2015 Curragh), 12/1: trainer Richard Hannon makes the occasional overseas raid in Ireland and his runners are always worth noting given the effort needed to run when ample opportunities lie at home. Wedding Date would have a good chance on his surprise win at York, and it is always worth forgiving a Chester defeat when poorly drawn. Hard for the handicapper to assess the overseas form, and hence could be good price.
