Go along with this ‘Temptress’

Saturday, August 12, 2017

Capla Temptress attempts to complete a hat-trick and preserve an unbeaten record in the £40000, group three, Sweet Solera Stakes over seven furlongs of a ‘soft’ Newmarkey July course today; Marco Botti’s charge was impressive over course and distance three weeks ago under talented apprentice, David Egan, son of veteran, John!

Obviously Egan wouldn’t be eligible to claim his 5lbs allowance in this-type race and Harry ‘Limato’ Bentley is booked, certainly no issue with that booking.

This is an opportunity for a ‘cheap’ yearling purchase to take on eight rivals, most of which are ‘super-breds’ because Capla Temptress qualified for an ‘auction’ race last time out when improving alarmingly off a short-head debut win on Chelmsford polytrack.

On the time-handicap Dance Diva comes out similarly but Richard Fahey’s charge was comprehensively beaten by Nyelati at Ascot a fortnight ago over six furlongs and did not look the type needing further.

Obviously any one of several could improve for experiences and Irish challenger, Mamba Noire, is right up to scratch, time-wise, but Capla Temptress won convincing and unchallenged on a demanding surface; the likelihood is there is more to come.

‘Super-Saturday’ is again overwhelming with so many fixtures but we’ve also eked out Bassmah as a ‘special’ for the moderate ‘aged’ Maiden Stakes over seven furlongs at Redcar where ‘soft’ is expected despite the course being a ‘quick-dryer.

Heavy rain(s) last week were horrendous but we’ll survive and hopefully make profit with our DAILY PATENT which also includes Buxton Dream, mount of Pat Cosgrave, in an ‘aged’ five-runner Maiden Stakes over six furlongs at Lingfield where it is ‘heavy in places!’

Recently we heard that Haggas and Cosgrave have ended association, Pat certainly hasn’t been on the ‘good things’ since that snippet. No smoke without fire, especially in racing.
