TWO BLONDES – Maiden Auction Stakes 14.10
Please see the NAP OF THE DAY
ACRUX – Selling Stakes 14.40
Won a similar event at Redcar and is from a stable which is in form at the moment. Drawn in the prime stall 1 over 6f, I don’t see much in the opposition so this seems like a good opportunity is win again. Tudhope, the stable jockey, chooses to go to Ayr today but David Nolan rides a lot for David O’Meara so I’m not seeing that as a major downside.
GLOBAL CONQUEROR – Maiden Stakes 16.10
Andrea Atzeni rides this promising and progressive sort for upcoming trainer Simon Crisford for some powerful connections. What I like about the selection is that he will like to lead in a race where only Valyrian is likely to go forward with him. Leicester over 1m is a track which favours front runners (ranking as the 5th most favourable track to front run at over 1m). So I take Atzeni to dictate from the front and be difficult to pass in the final uphill two furlongs.
