Another day, another PN finishing in the places….. This time 2nd, while the other two choices won….. Oh what I would give to have them all win …. I feel I have found another 3 with real live chances, so let’s crack on –
Peoples Nap Choices –
Kempton(AW) – Standard to Slow
4.15 – Handicap – Class 3 – 7f
Finelcity – Makes season return after last being seen in October, winning here over C/D in a class 4 handicap by 3/4’s of a length. Has a cracking C/D record of 2 wins & 1 place from 3 runs & has won 3 out of 4 at this course, all 3 wins came at the tail end of last term, steps up in class – 8/1
4.45 – Handicap – Class 4 – 6f
Hackney Road – Beaten over C/D in July by re opposing Maakaasib, after winning a class 5 Apprentice C/D handicap at the start of July. Has 2 wins & 1 place from 3 C/D runs – 7/4
Yarmouth – Good to Firm
7.10 – Handicap – Class 4 – 7f 3y
Multicultral – After finishing in the places on 1st two runs of the season, finally broke maiden tag with a 2 length victory over C/D 5 days from Call Me Grumpy, carries a penalty – 11/8
PN Result(Monday) UAE Queen – Drifted like a barge & was undone by a fantastic ride from James Doyle – 2nd!
Over to Charlie now for his thoughts & results, catch ya for Final Word –
Cheers Rich, let’s get straight down to Monday’s Results :
African Friend – Ran well but could only manage 3rd and was a loss.
Onlyfoolsownhorses – Ran well but was beaten into 2nd by Final Fling and was another loss.
Miss Conway – Won as expected Advised at 3-1 returned at 11-4
Just the one winner from my 3 selections, with the other two running well in defeat. Hopefully build on that with Tuesday’s selections listed below.
W G Grace -Has raced 3 times over 5f and should be capable of better, extra furlong may be more suitable here in a low grade handicap and a chance is taken on the win.
Ocean Temptress – was an unlucky 2nd in a 7 f seller handicap at Yarmouth wearing first time blinkers on the 10th August. Blinkers replaced by visor and if in same mood as last race could be hard to catch in this slightly easier race.
Mont Choisy – Was 3rd over 2m 7f at Uttoxeter on the 19th July, then went to Cartmel and raced over 3m 1f and again finished 3rd. Jock James Bowen takes 10lb off horses back and that should swing this race in horse’s favor.
Well that’s my thoughts on Tuesday’s races good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small. I will hand you back over to Rich for his final word.
Rich’s Final Word –
Harba was beaten at short odds yesterday & I wonder if fellow Frankel Filly Ambrosia will go one better at Kempton(3.15) having been beaten a shorthead on season return! While at Yarmouth(4.40), Charlie Appleby tries to continue his fine form, with Wild Illusion – Dubawi filly, who is half sister to Really Special & makes her race course debut for a trainer, who has a 33% SR with 2 year olds this year & has a 28% SR over the last 14 days…….
We would also like to pass on our condolences to Harry Fry & connections after the sad loss of Neon Wolf, a very talented NH horse, who were sure would have gone far. Also to Jane Chapple-Hyam, who lost Bullington Bandit yesterday….. Racing is the poorer for these losses & we send our thoughts to all involved…..
