A great win for yesterday’s nap, Hyanna, who stayed on well to reward us at a tasty 10/1. That was two winners on a rewarding Yankee too, although any luck in running, especially at Sandown, could have made it a red letter day.
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Chatham House, (1500 Brighton), 1pt win, 5/2:
3yo comes here having run respectably all season at 7f, winning well at Newbury, then 2nd of 16 switched to 6f at Newmarket. Only a pound higher, has scope for improvement and should enjoy the final uphill dash for the line.
Harlequin Rose, (1600 Brighton), 5/1: in form mare, her 2 lifetime wins have come here. Won last month, but then had a nightmare behind today’s favourite Joyful Dream. Put that behind her when a fast closing and narrowly beaten 4th here last time after again meeting trouble. Can beat Good Luck Charm on that run and deserves a chance of luck.
Count Of Carabass, (1620 Cork), 7/1: veteran who has often run well at this track. Last time he flashed home here for 6th of 24 over 6f, this extra furlong plays to his strengths and although he can’t be trusted to always give of his best, the most likely time to do so is at Cork.
Circle Of Stars (1700 Brighton), 3/1: favourite Luna Magic is a model of consistency but is closely matched on Goodwood form last week with Brother in Arms. Worth chancing that both can be beaten and a lightly raced 3yo fits the ticket. Circle Of Stars showed his first form when runner up to a useful sort for this grade and looks fairly treated up just 2lbs. The step up in trip helped him and he has a chance on that form alone even without the obvious scope to improve.
