We’ve had a lot of luck this week. All bad. The weather looks set to play a hand tomorrow and we’ll stick to Newbury in hope it survives…
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Group Stage, (1640 Newbury), 1pt win, 10/3:
Left his maiden form behind when a good second on this ground at Nottingham on seasonal debut. That is excellent form as the winner has sauntered home again since whilst the 4th, 9th and 12th have all also won since. A 3lb rise looks generous in that context and he should go really well.
Baadirr, (1400 Newbury), 11/4: racecourse experience is gold dust for early season 2yos. Not so much now but it is still an edge. Baadirr has that over his main opponents after finishing 7th here on debut. That may have been a decent maiden with the first two Ascot bound and the fourth an easy winner since. With guaranteed fitness and form, and bred to enjoy some cut, he should be hard to beat.
Leader Writer, (1535 Newbury), 9/4: the market has this right with soft ground lovers Leader Writer and Sod’s Law at the head of affairs. Leader Writer was an easy Ascot winner on soft off 92 when first brought here from France in 2017. Has an awful season for his out of form small yard last year and made an eye catching debut for his new trainer at Beverley. Runs off 84 now with Ryan Moore steering and should be too well in if maintaining his improvement.
Stormbomber, (1605 Newbury), 5/1: has shown glimpses of promise in three maiden runs and an opening mark of 66 looks pretty workable. Should enjoy this ground, and his stable remains in decent form. Looks the type to be a useful handicapper.
