Another nice winning nap yesterday courtesy of a well planned albeit narrow win for Jepeck (7/2 early, 3/1 SP) in the Sandown veterans race. A win for Fiddlerontheroof delivered a narrow profit on the yankee. Can we land a nap-trick?…

NAP OF THE DAY: Hard To Forget, (1440 Plumpton), 2pts win, 4/1:
We love Vinny Lewis who landed a nap for us when winning this in 2018, but we’re not sure he’s quite at his best. He would need to be to cope with the younger Hard To Forget who aims to land a hat trick of recent wins here. There was a lot to like about the way he ground it out here last time looking the better the further he went. That’s exactly what’s needed for this.
Everlastingpromise, (1350 Naas), 7/4: Enda Bolger trained youngsters are capable of huge improvement and this guy has shown that with two wins which may have been three but for a sloppy late jump over an extended 2m. The extra half mile last time in a good quality little race was too far under his usual bold front running tactics. Drops back wisely to the bare 2m here, and although the handicapper keeps piling on the weight, it still looks as if he has plenty in hand.
Shintori, (1510 Plumpton), 6/1: a fun horse to back as this fella does it easily or not at all. A real bridle horse who needs to be eased into the race without knowing and take it up no earlier than the last fence. Jockey Nick Scholfield knows exactly how to play him, and whilst he went from cruising to a bruising in seconds in deep ground last time, his previous run was a sauntering win at this course and it’s a place that plays to his tactics.
Fox Le Bel, (1530 Naas), 9/4: after three quiet hurdles runs he made his handicap debut in a low grade Clonmel handicap off just 92. Ran a cracker there getting into a lot of trouble before staying on really well for a close third. This extra distance should help on the evidence of that effort and a rise to 95 still leaves him barely out of the basement weights.
