ANOTHER NAP UP: Shamrock landed his nap, Runshan (WON 5-4), in England yesterday and, with no Irish racing until Navan tomorrow, resorts to Exeter today for back-to-back best bets.
Our breeders could land a super yankee. There are 14 Irish-breds among the 27 runners in chase and hurdle at Exeter today.
Jacarado (2.10) has a long-odds-on favourite in Soulard to overcome and Numen (2.40) also faces an odds-on shot, Shallow Bay.
Soulard and Shallow Bay would land a double for David Pipe, but Soulard has never run over hurdles and Shallow Bay only once, when defeated by Numen over CD.
Numen, who started his career over here with Henry De Bromhead, will have to improve on the book to maintain his narrow advantage over Shallow Bay on 7lb worse terms but Tony McCoy is always worth a few pounds and they could be close together.
Without a win when trained in Ireland, Captain Dash (3.40), has benefitted from a change of scene and is two out of two for his new yard in Welsh Wales.
McCauley (3.10) landed his maiden Point at Loughbrickland two years ago now and had not won again until a hunter-chase in the Spring. But he has a light weight and could improve for Philip Hobbs.
Wrapitupboys (4.10) ended his time in Ireland still a maiden and Tony McCoy has deserted him today, giving claimer Aodhagan Conlon his chance.
I doubt McCoy will ruin that chance from his seat on Coach Lane, and Morestead is notoriousluy one-paced. So I go for Daneva, who likes to front-run and loves firm ground.
There’s a cat-and-mouse clash in the beginners’ chase (4.40), with Spring Moon most likely to stay upright.
NAP: Daneva (4.10 Exeter)
NEXT BEST: McCauley (3.10 Exeter)
DAQ TRIO: McCauley (3.10 Exeter), Captain Dash (3.40 Exeter), Daneva (4.10 Exeter)
