Torrential rain may have led to a frustrating Ascot wash out – taking out our original intended yankee with it, but it offers an interesting added dynamic to the racing at Redcar, and a chance for a second take on the day’s events…
The Daily Yankee (again)
NAP OF THE DAY: Shark Two One, (1525 Redcar), 2pts win, 7/1:
We are not usually fans of these big field 2yo races but we can’t ignore the opportunity here. Specifically it may have been a low grade meeting here on soft ground a few weeks ago, but the sprint races were big fields and were totally dominated by those on the stands rail. Of the favourites here, only Richard Fahey’s runner has such a berth, he ran well to win last time and has a strong form chance in any regard, but stall 20 makes him a must.
Terebellum, (1445 Newmarket), 5/1: classy mare who was impressive over this course on seasonal debut. Followed that with a high class second in a Group 1 on soft. May have just been feeling the effects of those two big efforts when going down in a three way finish here to Nazeef and Billesdon Brook. Has been freshened up and should reverse that form and can get the better of the Irish raiders by making all under James Doyle.
Brunch, (1450 Redcar), 7/1: we have been big fans of this progressive 3yo all season and he was very unlucky kit to win for us at Ayr last time out. This is a big step up in class but that is reflected in the odds and he could just get better for the soft ground. Worth a punt.
Shepherd’s Way (1705 Redcar), 7/2: an inform rapidly improving 3yo filly who comes off the back of an impressive soft ground win at Haydock. That in itself is enough to fancy her for this event, throw in the highest draw and the likely advantage that confers and she looks too good to miss.
