Another winning nap yesterday courtesy of Wild Max (3/1 early, 2/1 SP), and we’ll head to Bangor in search of the nap-trick…
The Daily Yankee
NAP OF THE DAY: Mint Condition, (1533 Bangor), 1pt win, 9/4:
Two recent course winners share the head of the market here. Chirico Vallis made all here and has won again since leaving this 8yo on a career high mark. We prefer the younger Mint Condition who made an apparent big step forward on reappearance when a cosy winner here and looks up to defying an 8lb rise that still leaves him getting a stone from his main rival.
Vango De Vaige, (1400 Exeter), 7/2: some of the market leaders here bring form from sharp flat tracks like Fontwell and Fakenham, but Exeter is a brute of a galloping track. In contrast Vaigo De Vaige has plenty of course form including a win off this mark. Rarely seen in recent years he reappeared at Chepstow recently with a promising fourth and can add truth to the old adage of horses for courses.
Ofalltheginjoints, (1436 Exeter), 2/1: a good quality novice hurdler who always looked likely to be a better chaser, he is in a top yard that is only now starting to hit some form. His debut chase run in a better race that this at Aintree was full of promise looking the likely winner until between the last two fences when just run out of it. This is a weaker race and he will strip fitter, and it’s his for the taking if seeing out the stiff 3m.
Caventara, (1450 Ayr), 4/1: a cracking event which sees a rematch of two horses who run well fresh. Bigironinhiship was last seen winning the Borders National at Perth off a 7lb lower mark and has first run out form of 121F1. He has a big chance, but Caventara was favourite for that Perth race and was still bowling along in front when falling. He had made all on his seasonal reappearance before that and comes from a yard going well. He may be able to prove he was wronged at Perth on these better weight terms.
