Monday Yankee: Con Man can keep us honest…

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY:   The Con Man, (1515 Kelso), 1pt win, 7/4:

Was our nap last time on handicap debut when pipped late on after a lengthy battle for the lead.  The other prominent racer there caved in, and it was a sign of how well in this horse is that he nearly won despite that suicidal pace match.  Brian Hughes will have learnt that lesson and doesn’t seem to have as much pace threat here.  If he gets his own way this time it will be game over.

Kalaharry, (1345 Kelso), 7/2: this 8yo sets is a real puzzle as he has been raised to a lifetime high mark after a narrow Ayr win last time.  That would normally be a deterrent, but the second that day sauntered to a 16l win a few days ago, and even the third, who they left 30l behind has won since.  That may mean there is substance to his lifetime best, and a reasonable chance he can defy the weight rise.

Lastin’ Memories, (1415 Kelso), 5/2:  has been knocking on the door and his second last time at Ayr has been franked by the winner following up last week.  Tries first time blinkers here, and off the basement weight could be interesting if switching to more aggressive tactics.

Bill And Barn, (1530 Plumpton), 9/2:  a lot of these are out of form, and that was the case with this Ex-Nicholls inmate for some time as he struggled with a rating that said more about his old lodgings than his ability.  But he showed last time that the slump may be over when coming off narrowly second best in a epic three way slug up the Chepstow straight.  That has to be the best form here and he can land this under the ever reliable Nick Scholfield.
