After four successive winning naps - including the 10/1 Becher Chase hero - Matt Brocklebank heads to Wolverhampton for his Monday best bet.
Sporting Life Daily Nap, December 10
NAP: Aircraft Carrier (6.30 Wolverhampton)
It’s fair to say Aircraft Carrier had quite the start in life.
A son of Declaration Of War, he initially fetched $350,000 as a yearling having caught the eye of the Ballydoyle team at the sales. He was to have three runs for Aidan O’Brien – winning the last of them at Gowran in October.
He was on the move to John Ryan soon after and after an inauspicious start at Chelmsford, very much took the eye here last time.
He eventually finished fourth behind Cry Wolf but found himself badly positioned when the tempo increased.
He did finish to good effect, though, and with Martin Harley taking over in the saddle – going up in trip – everything looks in place for a big run.
