Sunday Yankee: Silver lining?

When your luck is in this game is easy, when the luck is out… a week that has seen us have naps that include a fall, a hampered unseat and a brought down, it looked like luck had finally turned in Kempton’s big hurdle yesterday.  The clear leader blundered and unseated at the last leaving our nap contesting the lead only for him to then also tip up !!  Let’s hope it turns around today, we’ll take a clear round for starters…

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY:   Rocky’s Silver, (1410 Punchestown), 1pt win, 7/2: 

French import Cheb De Kerviniou made a fine debut for Elliott and has caught everyone’s eye with Patrick Mullins booked but he looks very short.  We prefer course winner Rocky’s Silver.  He looked potentially progressive that day and has the superb Derek O’Connor in the saddle.  He is young enough to have improvement and he can upset the odds.

Mr McGo, (1250 Kelso), 9/2:  last ran in a quality Kempton handicap and it is interesting his northern trainer sent him all the way down there.  Ran well and drops in class here thanks to a small ratings drop.  Could go well in a race with plenty of early pace that should play to his stamina.  Aloomomo started 3/1 fav for a Cheltenham Festival handicap in 2017, you’d have gotten some price then that he would lose and remain winless to 2010.  He looks a very short price to break such a long drought.

Roxboro Road, (1335 Punchestown), 11/4:  a good looking chasing type who has been quietly fancied in decent races the last twice only to slip up here and then fall in a chaotic race at Leopardstown.  This looks an easier assignment and a chance to register a win and get back on track.

Big River, (1500 Kelso), 6/1:  was unbeaten at this track until brought down half way around in the Borders National last time.  Tends to run in snatches but this place brings out his best behaviour.  May prefer a longer trip, but the likely fast pace of Amis Debois should make this a test of stamina and he can prevail if he deigns to stay in touch long enough.
