Wednesday Yankee: Starry starry Knight…

A welcome Nap winner yesterday when Lucky Lucky Man (15/2 early, 13/2 SP and as big as 11/1 at times) went 2 from 2 when napped by us, both at a tasty price, earning him a coveted, and rarer than we’d like, spot in our Hall of Fame !!

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY:  Knight Commander , (1340 Taunton), 1pt win, 5/2.  

Trainer Shelia Lewis had a runner finish second yesterday, ending a run of six consecutive winners from her tiny Brecon yard.  This horse was two of those wins, and although up in the weights can land the hat-trick here.  In a race for inexperienced jockeys, the 3lb claim of Katie Powell looks golden given the style of her win on this horse in a faultless start to her jump racing career.  Trust them to do it again.

Espresso Freddo, (1315 Nottingham), 7/2:  is a couple of pounds well in under a penalty for last week’s Windsor cruise.  He can be a bit all-or-nothing, but he is obviously in very good form and in Jamie Spencer he has just the right pilot to coax the best out of a mercurial talent.  It takes one to know one.

Almigwhar, (1945 Kempton), 6/4:  beautifully bred and has started to make an impact on the all weather this season with an easy maiden and an easy novice win.  Dips into handicaps now, and although a high enough mark at first glance, this is a horse who may be capable of top level form on this surface, in which case he could still have plenty in hand.

Tralee Hills, (2015 Kempton), 25/1:  a competitive race but it could be worth chancing moody outsider Tralee Hills.  He can be very in and out, but his 3 runs for Hayley Turner have finished 1-3-4 at odds of 16s, 33s and 14s.  Would probably enjoy a strong pace as he likes to settle well back and come late.  Looks overpriced to spring a surprise.
