Wednesday Yankee: Rock solid…

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY:   Getaway Totherock, (1445 Ludlow), 1pt win, 5/2:

A lightly raced mare who may have produced her best when a wide margin winner at this course two runs ago.  Her handicap debut at Newbury last time was a pretty decent effort.  This looks a lesser race, and back on a proven stomping ground she looks the day’s best bet.

The Eagle’s Nest, (1430 Southwell), 9/2:  a fascinating little handicap for his course.  Plenty have a chance but we like The Eagle’s Nest.  He was a shock winner when getting up late on over a mile here last time.  He may just have clicked on this surface.  He usually races over much longer trips and the 7f is a worry, but connections now know he goes well here and they have permission to be more aggressive tactically.

Tabaahy, (1810 Wolves), 4/1:  the course could be key for this fella.  His one win came here in good style in a maiden, and his other course run was a close but never sixth.  Ran pretty well at Newcastle last time but it’s the return to these conditions that look perfect. Kirby is an interesting jockey booking.

Seventeen O Four, (1940 Wolves), 3/1:  jockey Hayley Turner picks her rides selectively these days and she will know a win got away on board this 3yo last time.  He cruised through to lead but found little late on.  Turner will know to be a little more cautious this time and will certainly delay her effort til later in the race.
