Friday Yankee: Worth shouting about Whisper…

A bit of a bonus for us yesterday as our nap of the day Clearance was an almighty market drifter before winning at 13/2. Let’s see if we can get on a run…

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY: Gypsy Whisper, (1635 Sandown), 1pt win, 11/4:

It’s hard to be too dogmatic in a field of lightly raced fillies where there are plenty of unknowns. What is a known though is that Gypsy Whisper is the one to beat having delivered on the promise of a few near misses when a smooth winner over this course and distance off a mark of 77. She has been raised 7lbs for that, but knowing she thrives here, and with William Buick keeping the ride, she looks the value to go in again whilst some of her rivals continue to learn their trade.

Mr Mooj, (1445 Sligo), 11/4: this lightly raced 3yo hails from the Joseph O’Brien yard and looks likely to turn out a lot better than a mark of 86. Probably a bit unlucky not to have registered a win in his two handicap runs, and with the blinkers on and stepping back 2f in trip it would be no surprise if he’s given a more prominent ride here. Should still be improving and should win.

Mon Choix, (1455 Sandown), 6/4: striking whilst the iron is hot is a mantra for us, and the iron doesn’t get much hotter than destroying a field by nearly 8 lengths which is what this gelding did on his return to turf at Windsor on Monday evening. That will doubtless earn a massive hike from the handicapper, but he gets to go here with just a 6lb penalty and he should brush that off with little effort.

Revolver, (1605 Sandown), 1/1: some good friends of ours are having fun owning this fella who has now won four in a row for arch strategist Sir Mark Prescott. The horse looks workmanlike but naive, and gives the impression there could be a lot more still to come. At some stage the increasing weight and rise in class will burst the balloon, but probably not today, and maybe not for a few runs yet.
