NAP – My best tip of the day
Haydock 8.02 Monica (6/4)
Promising filly who took a sizeable step forward picking up strongly to win impressively at Carlisle last month; third won readily next time out to frank the form; more improvement to come now handicapping so big shout.
I thought there was lots to like about the way MONICA won at Carlisle last month. She still looked quite raw when she hit the front but she has plenty of size and scope and quickly found herself clear to win by 4 lengths. She is only going to improve from that and now handicapping off a mark of 75 she looks to have found a great opportunity to follow up. Main market rival Bungley looks the pace in the race but I can only see her setting it up for the selection who will be ridden quietly before looking to pick them up in the closing stages. Under The Twilight is a non runner now so Boasted may prove best of the rest. She was too keen last time so would need to settle to have a squeak.
Brighton 3.20 Hidden Pearl (2/1)
Likeable mare who deserved to get her head in front winning convincingly at Bath last month, staying on strongly at the finish to go clear; a 4lb rise won’t be enough to stop her if in the same mood here; obvious chance.
This is low-grade stuff but given the way HIDDEN PEARL won at Bath last time she appeals as a great bet to follow up at 2/1! She has been running well all season and certainly deserved to get her head in front. She drops back slightly in trip but that shouldn’t inconvenience and a small rise is unlikely to stop her if in the same form here. The second Sir Joseph Swan beat the long odds-on Arcadian Friend at Salisbury next time out to frank the form as well. Global Style won at Lingfield but failed to back that up when a short priced favourite here on Wednesday and might prove vulnerable again. Temur Khan won that race Global Style flopped in and might be the main threat.
