Newsboy’s Nap is Kraken Power, a runner in the Titanium Racing Club Handicap at Ripon (7.55). Joe Fanning’s mount is 3-1 in the betting for the sprint contest
It’s full steam ahead for KRAKEN POWER in the Titanium Racing Club Handicap (7.55) at Ripon on Monday evening.
Joe Fanning’s mount takes in the contest over the minimum trip after recording several places on his CV in recent weeks.
Earlier this summer he finished runner-up behind Saturday’s Shergar Cup Sprint winner Mitrosonfire off a 2lb higher mark than he races off today.
Down to 80, he finished a close-up third in a Musselburgh handicap ten days ago, when sent off at 12-1 in the betting.
The selection showed plenty of pace and led over a furlong out, before being collared by improving sprinter Clarendon House.
On the same rating, Iain Jardine’s charge has an excellent chance of doubling his career tally.
At Windsor, FOREST FALCON can reach the number one spot in the Racing League On Sky Sports Racing Handicap (7.05).
The mount of jockeys’ title contender William Buick, who needs to close the gap on the leader Oisin Murphy, the gelding is down in grade from his last start.
That came at Goodwood, when he was a creditable fifth in a decent handicap.
Forest Falcon gets plenty of weight from key rival Maiden Castle and a repeat of his last effort brings him right into contention.
