NAP OF THE DAY: Grain Of Sense (1505 Newmarket), 1pt win, 10/3:
The 2yo campaign this Autumn has been lit up by the ever powerful John Gosden and the flying form of Ralph Beckett. Gosden looks set to have a fruitful day on a Newmarket card he has farmed successfully in the past. Whilst he holds the aces earlier in the card (see below), he holds the joker here as Herman Hesse has looked tricky in four defeats to date and reaches for the headgear. This may be the race to row in with Beckett as his Teofilio colt Grain Of Sense ran a blinder here on debut, looking hugely inexperienced before staying on well for third. He should come on a ton for that and looks likely to enjoy this marathon test.
Mostly, (1320 Newmarket), 7/4: the battle between the mighty Gosden yard and the red-hot Beckett yard commences in the opener. It is tempting to think Beckett’s Calatrava could be the value, but Gosden’s Mostly has more class in her breeding and could be too good on this occasion under Frankie.
King Leonidas, (1355 Newmarket), 5/2: Gosden can keep up the good work as his newcomer here looks to be the best bred horse on display on the whole card. Sire Kingman was a Gosden alumni and is proving adept not just at producing high class horses, but, much like himself, ones that can impress on debut. Frankie again doing the steering.
Galsworthy, (1430 Newmarket), 7/4: the Gosden bandwagon can roll on and provide another for Frankie with this newcomer. Not as eye catching on breeding as King Leonidas in the previous division of this race, but sure to be well prepped and looks to have landed in the weaker heat of the two.
