Ben Linfoot heads to the first day of Newcastle's Northumberland Plate meeting on Thursday for the Sporting Life Daily Nap.
Sporting Life Daily Nap, June 27
The soft ground in the first half of Royal Ascot week denied SENIORITY his place in the Royal Hunt Cup but he might just love Newcastle's Tapeta surface on Thursday.
William Haggas' horse was withdrawn on the day of the Hunt Cup due to the ground but he looked primed and ready for that assignment and can strike while the iron is hot just over a week on.
Fairly handicapped off 102 on last summer's peak form, he prepped for Ascot with a good run in second at Epsom where he had to race more prominently than ideal due to his inside draw.
That shows he goes into his Newcastle assignment in fine order and this dual-Chelmsford winner could well thrive on the Tapeta surface.
Progeny of Dubawi certainly have a good record on the all-weather at Newcastle, winning 15 from 53 goes at 28.30 per cent, beating 69.24 per cent of their rivals in the process.
They are pretty solid numbers and add weight to the Seniority case, already a strong one on form. He looks Nap material in an easier race than the one he was laid out for last week.
