The latest selections
NAP: Majestic 1pt win only 5/1 B365 ITV 4/1 offer (130 Beverley) – Plenty to like about this Mick Channon trained handicap debutant, who despite going from the top of the weights here today does not look harshly treated by his opening mark. Has improved with each run since finishing 4th in a hot contest on seasonal reappearance. Followed that run up with another solid effort when 3rd in behind a subsequent winner from the John Gosden yard Operating who now holds a mark of 91. The selection was giving lumps of weight away that day too which makes his opening mark here look pretty fair. Ran well again finishing 2nd on soft ground at Ffos Las before absolutely hosing up last time out over the mile at Pontefract. Has a decent draw here and goes in the very experienced hands of Ben Curtis who has a 35% strike rate at the track in the last 12 months.
IWAC: Queen Olly £10 or (2pt) win only 15/2 Skybet money back offer (150 Goodwood) – Comfortable winner on debut and has since placed on both starts in Group company. All 3 runs to date have been over 6f and given her breeding on the Dam’s side this extra furlong is worth exploring. Holds an entry in the G1 Fillies mile at Newmarket for October so this step up has clearly been in the thoughts of connections too. Usual jockey Rossa Ryan who has a full book of rides on the evening card at Windsor has been replaced by Rowan Scott who has 1 win from 2 runs for connections.
LONGSHOT: Sir Dancealot 0.5pt EW 16/1 B365 ITV 4/1 offer (225 Goodwood) – Twice a CD winner in his pomp and proved that much of the ability remains when second at Pontefract on what was only a second run following almost 2 years off the track. Not quite at the races next time out in G2 company and is of more interest today back handicapping. Jim Crowley takes over in the saddle and he has had plenty of success in these colours winning 4 times and placing twice from just 11 rides for connections.
NB: Existent 1pt win only 9/1 b365 ITV 4/1 offer (240 Beverley) – Takes a marked step back in grade here having faced off against some pretty stiff opposition recently and should feel more at home in today’s Listed grade. Has a great draw and should he be able to use that to his advantage by getting a good tow in, could prove difficult to beat today for a yard who have hit a much better streak of late.
