NAP OF THE DAY: Yalltari, (1500 Ascot), 1pt win, 4/1:
Was a good novice last year and signed off with a fair third here in the top class Reynoldstown. Has thrived on heavy ground in the past and comes here for a stable that does well with horses coming off a break and couldn’t be in better form with the winners flying in.
Espoir De Guye, (1350 Ascot), 3/1: Young horse from a stable that is red hot. Started his chasing career with a fair second to a very well handicapped winner at Chepstow before a cost win on soft at Exeter. Should relish these conditions and gets a useful 10lbs from main rival First Flow.
Vintage Clouds, (1440 Haydock), 9/2: has been knocking around in these kind of races of this kind of mark for a few years. Two chase wins in twenty suggest he isn’t the easiest to win with, but he is often set stiff tasks. This looks more winnable, and with the stable finding some form of late he can pip last year’s winner Daklondike.
Tamaroc Du Mathan, (1535 Ascot), 9/1: A very strong looking handicap with several angles. Quio De Neuf represents a yard in great form whilst Umbrigado can do better at this trip. Paul Nicholls does so well at this track and the very lightly raced Tamaroc Du Mathan is a youngster of some potential. His UK debut here last time looks good after the winner romped in yesterday, and although Tamaroc was well beaten, his stable’s runners have often improved for a run this year, which would make him hard to beat.
