Ben Linfoot fancies Jessica Harrington's Trethias to take advantage of a drop in class and trip at Naas on Sunday.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, October 20

Jessica Harrington’s TRETHIAS looks the one to be on in dropping back in trip to a mile in the Listed Naas Racecourse Business Club Irish EBF Garnet Stakes at Naas on Sunday.

The Invincible Spirit filly hasn’t quite been getting home over 10 furlongs but she’s been running well in defeat, notably when a close-up fourth when leading for a long way in the Group 3 Darley Pride Stakes behind Fanny Logan at Newmarket nine days ago.

That’s standout form in Sunday’s line-up and confidence is increased in her when you consider her career-best effort came at this track in June when she beat subsequent Irish St Leger winner Search For A Song comfortably in the Naas Oaks Trial.

Likely to be prominent from the outset, she could be hard to catch under Shane Foley at a track that plays to her strengths.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, October 21

Tom Dascombe's GENEVER DRAGON has the rare distinction of having brushed shoulders with superstar juvenile Pinatubo at Wolverhampton back in January and while he made little impression there, his two subsequent runs have displayed plenty of promise.

He was only beaten two and a half lengths when seventh of 11 in a warm novice event at Haydock before a pretty respectable third behind two exciting types at Doncaster last time out.

The winner of that race has gone in again since and has a rating of 90 so Genever Dragon's initial mark of 74 looks manageable on the face of it, while there are reasons to believe further improvement could be forthcoming.

Stepping up to a mile looks likely to suit based on what we've seen so far while the horse returns following a short break and a gelding operation.

First-time cheekpieces are also enlisted so while stall eight might not look ideal at first glance, if they head over towards the stands' side in the straight then he could just be in a decent position.
