Saturday Yankee: Cam and get it…

The Daily Yankee

NAP OF THE DAY:   Camprond,  (1730 Punchestown), 2pts win, 5/1:

One of our leading Cheltenham fancies and he ran a cracker for 4th on the Coral Cup on a drenching day where the ground turned completely against him.  Not the case here where conditions should be ideal and he can show he remains a supremely well handicapped horse.

Tarhib, (1350 Newmarket), 5/1:  hard to know exactly what to make of this lightly raced filly. She looked full of promise when winning her first two runs of her 3yo campaign and was tried in listed company last time.  She was a well held 8th there but still did better than her handicap rating would have suggested.  The stable often do well with fresh horses and she has crept in at the bottom of the weights here and could be very well in.

Twilight Calls, (1500 Newmarket), 3/1:  how valuable is fitness?  Twilight Calls is by no means the best rated of these but comes here having already win a race at this track this season.  Plenty of his higher rated rivals have poor reappearance records so he may have the jump on them, and besides he always looked the type to make a much better 4yo and he can show that here.

West Cork Wildway, (1625 Punchestown), 6/1:   Interesting novice who looked to have been campaigned with the spring festival handicaps in mind.  Was quietly fancied for Cheltenham until the downpours there saw him withdrawn.  This is his surface and the longer trip should suit and he is worth risking despite having been rarely seen this season .
