NAP OF THE DAY: Kinross, (1800 Newcastle), 1pt win, 13/8:
It remains to be seen how good the Newmarket maiden was in which Kinross debuted last month, but it had to be one of the most impressive 2yo debuts of recent history. The Kingman colt representing the in form Ralph Beckett, cruised through the race and barely broke sweat before kicking 8l clear with a burst of acceleration. Could be the one to take Pinatubo on in next year’s Guineas and can prove that by taking this prestigious event.
Badenscoth, (1415 Newmarket), 17/2: Won four races earlier this year but looked to have lost his way until a fair 10th in the Cambridgeshire followed by a good 4th at York. Looked to make his ground a bit too quickly at York and faded late on after hitting the front. Can do better here with a well judged ride.
Happy Diva, (1535 Wetherby), 4/1: Mare ran a lifetime best winning a Listed event at Huntingdon in February. The second and third have won since and on that form she’d be 10lbs well in on this mark. However did lose both subsequent starts, albeit falling too early at Newbury and then getting overhauled at Cheltenham. This flat track would be more like Huntingdon, and if she is sharp enough first time out (lifetime seasonal debut form 22332), then she should be well in the mix.
Harvest Day, (1930 Newcastle), 5/1: loves this straight 7f with form over it of 428212, where the 8th was one of the unluckiest runs of the season. Is still in great form and looks value against an over-backed favourite.
