Nap Of The Day
Nap Of The Day

Ben Coley heads to Windsor for Monday's nap, with two other selections put forward from the card at Yarmouth.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, October 15

  • NAP: SHABBAH (3.40 Windsor)
  • Next Best: Aplomb (2.30 Yarmouth)
  • Treble: Compulsive (4.00 Yarmouth)

Shabbah carries a penalty for winning well at Nottingham last week, but it may not stop him from doubling up in the ROA/Racing Post Owners' Jackpot Handicap (3.40) at Windsor.

Joseph Tuite's horse returned to form two starts ago in first-time blinkers and stepped up on that, the headgear working wonders again, when defying a troubled passage to win comfortably.

That performance suggested there was more in the locker and winning from a mark of 85 shouldn't be beyond a horse once sent off favourite for a Glorious Goodwood handicap off 91 when with Sir Michael Stoute.

Perhaps significantly, his three wins for Stoute came in sequence and with confidence restored, Franny Norton's mount is expected to prove hard to beat.

William Haggas saddled a smart winner on the corresponding Yarmouth card last year and while not likely to prove in the class of Willie John, the British EBF Novice Stakes (2.30) looks a good opportunity for Aplomb.

He was fifth on debut in what looked a decent Newbury maiden, the second won next time and Martin Harley has an excellent record for the yard.

John Quinn's filly, Sarasota Bay, achieved a similar level of form at Haydock and is a threat in receipt of weight, while Silvestre de Sousa's booking aboard newcomer Lyndon B catches the eye, but Aplomb should be hard to beat if taking the anticipated step forward.

For the final selection, a market check is advised but Compulsive is a fascinating runner for Gary Moore in the Grosvenor Casino Of Great Yarmouth Handicap (4.00).

He's shown absolutely nothing in two starts for the yard but has dropped 10lb in the weights as a result and can drop in grade to a compact 0-60 after a three-month break.

Moore has booked Gerald Mosse for just the second time and employs first-time cheekpieces, all of which helps to make this well-bred three-year-old one for the shortlist with any market support worth heeding.
