The Daily Yankee:
NAP OF THE DAY: Our Little Pony, (1900 Thirsk), 1pt win, 7/1:
Didn’t see runaway winner Hawaam last time when that one slipped the field for a wide margin win with this filly plugging on for second. Gets a big 8lb pull and with plenty of pace-setters likely to battle for the early honours, she could have the race run to suit. Won here on soft ground last season so the forecast rains look very much in her favour, and if the rain soaks in she could end up half this price.
Ozone, (1915 Curragh), 6/1: promised much as a 2yo but ended up a disappointing favourite in two big field handicaps. The promise was back on seasonal debut when a running on 6th of 15 at Killarney, and he is bred to appreciate this trip. Should end up a lot better than this mark of 52, and with any progress from that first run he will be very dangerous here. Market support is already evident and he looks like the gamble of the day.
Munfallet, (1950 Curragh), 14/1: a frequent winner in England whose form was on the slide before moving to Ireland late last year. Was ridden from the front on his first two runs this year – a tactic that brought him his 6 UK wins – but actually ran with more promise last time when staying on from mid division to be 4th of 19 at Leopardstown. Has a 3lb lower mark here due to the earlier disappointments, but if that last run indicated he is coming to hand then this mark of 59 is very generous, and a stand side draw could give him a rail to run against.
Silverkode, (2020 Curragh), 6/1: this 5yo has course form of 11165, the main issue being that this is almost all at distances beyond this sprint trip. He could probably do with some rain, but even so, his run last time at Cork was highly promising and he gets to run off a surprisingly generous 4lb lower mark here. Has been 3 months off since and there is a risk he could be given a gentle return, but this looks a highly winnable race and he has the class to go close regardless of the layoff.
