The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Gopsies Daughter, (1505 Navan), 1pt win, 11/2:
A regular on this blog in the Spring but has left us chasing losses after a series of frustrating losses. We avoided her allure since, but she is now on such a low mark and has an interesting very high draw that this could be the day at a track where she registered two wins last year. Has a 24lb turnaround with stablemate Bahlwan for a 2l defeat at Down Royal which surely signals just how well weighted she has become.
Aspen Belle, (1540 Navan), 8/1: has been plagued with some bad luck but is undoubtedly a bit of a tricky ride. Killian Leonard knows her well, and if she is in the same form/mood as when a good 4th at the Curragh last time then she would have a big chance here.
Lady In Lavender, (1640 Navan), 4/1: a mare in form is always worth following. This mare cantered home last time at Gowran. That didn’t go un-noticed with a monster 16lb rise. That’s usually more than enough to stop the fun, but she may just be able to shrug it off.
Harvey Specter, (1715 Navan), 13/2: we love to find ways to back a single form-line in two strands of the yankee as it feels like being paid multiplied odds for essentially the same risk of whether that form works out. So having backed Lady In Lavender it makes sense here to back the horse who chased her home, Harvey Specter. He has already done his bit for that form by running a very unlucky 4th at Cork since. Gets a decent draw and a good jockey here and he can hopefully follow his old rival into the winners’ enclosure.
