Thursday Yankee: Boxing clever?

The Daily Yankee

Roll Again, (1320 Kempton), 1pt win, 11/4:

Landed the nap for us last week with a swaggering front running win at Ludlow.  Has been raised 13lbs for that but runs here off just a 7lb penalty.  This track would suit if he finds a rhythm, he can be dangerously low and fast at his fences, so it will be hearts in mouths, but if he can jump cleanly he should take this.

Ena Baei, (1345 Leopardstown), 10/1:  interesting to see this mare, trained in the UK by Harry Fry, making a second consecutive appearance in Ireland.  It’s a few months since she was a staying on 4th at Galway having had a less than ideal run.  Travelling over suggests more trouble than would be worth if she was anything less than spot on, and with more luck she could be on a dangerous Irish mark, as connections clearly believe.

Ellie Mac, (1455 Leopardstown), 15/2:  this mare won on this card two years ago, and although last of 6 at this meeting last year that was in a grade 1.  Looks well weighted and has had a couple of spins over hurdles.  This is likely to have been the target and the sight of Davy Russell in the saddle can only be a big plus.

Cyrname, (1505 Kempton), 6/4:  a classic King George where defending champ Clan Des Obeaux could go well but realistically has his work cut out against the big two.  Lostintranslation is a lovely horse and proven at 3 miles, but Cyrname has the exceptional performances including inflicting Altior’s first defeat last time.  That’s all been 2m4f at Ascot, but his natural speed could have them all in trouble here and his trainer certainly knows how to win this contest.
