Charlie McCann is back with his Nap, Next Best, and Longshot for a busy Monday of racing action that includes meetings at Ayr, Newton Abbott, and Lingfield.
Charging Thunder – 4.50pm Ayr (Nap)
At Ayr CHARGING THUNDER (4.50pm) made all to win at Chepstow last time and he is taken to follow up on his handicap debut for David O’Meara. The selection is a half-brother to the globetrotting Prince Of Arran and looked good value for his neck supremacy over Andrew Balding’s Bashful in south Wales.
The runner up has subsequently finished in the same silver medal position on his handicap debut from a mark of 74 and Charging Thunder looks potentially well treated from his opening mark of 75. Fairmac blew the start but finished well at Chester last time and could take the selection on for the lead, which is a slight concern, but I do believe there is more to come from Charging Thunder who will get further than 10f in time.
Sarvan – 8.35pm Lingfield (Next Best)
I hope it’s a good night for trainer George Scott at Lingfield this evening. The Newmarket handler saddles Livia The Empress in the 3-y-old handicap earlier in the card and SARVAN (8.35pm) who is taken to land the concluding 10f handicap for older horses. The selection bounced back to form when second at Windsor on soft ground last time and he gets the vote with Jamie Spencer taking over in the saddle. This will be the gelding’s first run on polytrack, but he ran a terrific race on his sole previous all-weather start on tapeta back in February.
Spencer was in the plate when the 4-y-old was a beaten favourite at Doncaster earlier in the year in a stronger race than todays. He only has a Pontefract maiden win to his name, but the grey has only had eleven career starts and is open to a bit more improvement.
Tanrudy (Each-Way) – 4.05pm Newton Abbott (Longshot)
TANRUDY (4.05pm) was no match for Cape Robin at Worcester last time but has winning form on soft ground may not be as inconvenienced as many in the field if it turns soft. The selection won on heavy ground from a mark of 96 earlier in his career and can race off 87 this afternoon. As a son of Presenting, he would prefer good ground, but he does act on soft and that might be the key today against a field of summer jumpers.
