Another nice Nap win yesterday courtesy of an impressive return for one of our favourites in Imperial Aura (2/1). We’ll try for the nap hat-trick today…
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Production, (1750 Wolverhampton), 1pt win, 7/2:
The last time this fella saw this surface he was running over 12f, so it has been a dramatic change of tactics to see him drop to sprinting. But he has looked revitalised for his in form stable, and with the magic of Marquand in the saddle and a nice draw he looks like he could now strike at his new discipline.
Takeonefortheteam, (1350 Kempton), 4/1: has been in consistent form at this track of late. Travels well and has a useful turn of foot. That challenge hasn’t always been well timed, but he got it right here a few days ago and carries a penalty in this weaker event. Provided he times that challenge well he looks up to defying the weight in this form.
Medalla De Oro, (1505 Plumpton), 7/1: a decent flat handicapper who looks likely to be as good if not better over hurdles. Has toiled under a winner’s penalty when runner up in his last two novice starts and now starts a handicap career off a decent mark. His conditional jockey knows him well and gets to take off 10lbs and this sharp track should be ideal for his prominent racing style.
Nocturnal Myth, (1540 Plumpton), 9/4: we’ve landed a couple of wins in the last few days by entrusting the red-hot stable form of Anthony Honeyball. This fella may have less obvious claims than some of his winners, but he is probably better than he showed when weakening over a longer trip on handicap debut 18 months ago. A long lay-off is rarely an issue for this yard and his mark of just 91, with tongue-tie and wind operation to help, looks a bit of a gift if he can share the wellbeing of his stablemates. Rex Dingle continues to be well worth his 3lb claim in teh saddle.
