Sporting Life's NAP of the day

Philip Hobbs applies cheekpieces to a handicap chaser at Wincanton on Wednesday and Matt Brocklebank thinks the move can pay dividends.

Sporting Life Daily Nap: February 25

KAYF ADVENTURE looks to have plenty in his favour returning to Wincanton on Wednesday for the Buy Your Building Materials From CRS Handicap Chase.

It's a course he knows well with a career record of 212 at the Somerset venue and that win was his most recent career success, coming in a course and distance handicap chase in January 2018 from an official mark of 133.

He's come back down from 139 to a current perch of 132 so is clearly fairly treated again and he should find this contest a little more to his liking than the quite decent company he's been keeping so far this season.

He's not been completely disgraced at Chepstow and Ascot around the turn of the year and he should be more at home giving weight to supposedly lesser rivals.

It's also fairly significant that Philip Hobbs reaches for the cheekpieces on this occasion. The trainer has a very respectable record when applying the headgear for the first time (16/87 at 18.39% in handicaps only) and they might just help eke out that little extra from the nine-year-old Kayf Adventure.
