It may have been a narrow margin, but yesterday’s Nap of the day Greenside (7/2 early, 3/1 SP) snuck to a Haydock win that keeps the naps rolling…
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Red Bravo, (1830 Thirsk), 1pt win, 7/1:
He got gradually worse for trainer Charlie Hills but has shown a few sneaky signs of a return to form for new trainer Mark Loughnane. May have been a bit unlucky the last twice but has benefitted from a further ratings slip. Looks set to spring back to life soon and this looks as good a chance as any.
Call Me Ginger, (1340 Ayr), 5/1: a cracking sprint where both Lord Oberon and John Kirkup will have big chances if the ground stays properly soft. That said, the race in which Call Me Ginger was a strong finishing close fifth last time looks great form with the first two home having won again since. He’s a horse who has promised to be pretty decent and this could be his chance to get started.
Colony Queen, (1545 Ayr), 5/2: looking for her third straight win this season, and her third straight win for this blog. We love her because her smooth running style but narrow victories hint at more yet doesn’t get overly punished by the handicapper. Another last gasp win at Beverley has only seen a 3lb rise, and she looks set to do it again .
Berkshire Savvy, (1845 Windsor), 8/1: an interesting handicap in which Bright Eyed Eagle is the obvious one but very short. Better value could lie with Berkshire Savvy, whose reappearance effort at 6th at Haydock was fair, and a subsequent 9th of 17 in a hot Royal Ascot race when 100/1 and out of the handicap was another decent show. This is a big step back in class and he looks a fair price under Oisin Murphy.
