NAP OF THE DAY: Donnelly’s Rainbow, (1700 Catterick), 1pt win, 5/1:
A consistent sort, but a consistent loser, rattling up 26 straight defeats since winning on debut. Has gone very close though this year and looked particularly unlucky last time at Musselburgh. Has a wider than ideal draw, but he does like to be held up, and he may be able to weave through with a late surge if they go quickly enough.
Muscika, (1620 Yarmouth) 3/1: a high quality claiming handicap with a top weight rated 100. That is Raucous who was an excellent 4th in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot. The market may have over-reacted to that, and the in form Muscika may be the better options. The O’eara-Tudhope combo are rattling up the wins and this one ran very well just a few days ago.
Sonnet Rose, (1720 Yarmouth), 5/2: this mare’s 4 wins have come on the all weather, but Yarmouth has one of the highest turf track correlations with all weather (Newmarket surprisingly being another). That shows in this mare’s good form here, she is knocking on the door and rarely as loudly as last week’s excellent second to a very well-in favourite. No such danger here and she should break her turf duck.
Perfect Grace, (1800 Bath), 1/1: she was one of three 3yos in a similar race here last week on handicap when a close second to a well fancied winner, with the third well beaten. That 1-2-3 was the three 3yos, there are only two this race, and with the other coming from the woefully out of form Prescott yard, the door looks wide open for Perfect Grace to go one better.
