Dynasty can dazzle and put Acomb rivals in their place
Back Local Dynasty @ 3.02/1 in the 14:25 at York
A tidy 6/1 winning double yesterday with Maghlaak and Special Forces landing our second multiple in eight days following the winning 24/1 multiple on Anmaat and Tyrone's Poppy last Saturday.
Wednesday and day one of the Ebor Festival opens up with a 22-runner, 8/1 the field race, so if you are playing the each-way multiples on the Sportsbook, remember you can back more than one horse in the same race for a place multiple.
We won't be using each-way on Charlie Appleby's Local Dynasty in the Group 3 Acomb - a prize so far that has eluded the Godolphin man. Indeed, the north have done well in this race on their own patch in recent seasons.
The 2yo posted a deeply impressive performance on debut in a Newcomers Maiden at Newmarket to win by nearly 4L in a race that traditionally throws up some decent horses.
He got loose before loading and was extremely green early in the race, but once the realisation of the racing game kicked-in, he swooped to conquer and looked very strong. It was almost a perfect Dubawi-like performance from the son of the super stallion.
His last 3f at HQ hit a finishing speed of 110%, running the quickest fifth and sixth furlong by far. He also hit 17.016/1 in-running, and dare I say it, could have a touch of the Native Trail about him.
Entered in the Royal Lodge and the Dewhurst, and he can get Appleby on the board for the meeting.
Bethell's filly on the up and should love York
Back Sandbeck @ 7.513/2 in the 16:45 at York
I could play Baaed for the second selection at 2/5 for not the most exciting double in the world, but there's nothing wrong with being dull occasionally, as I think he'll get 1m2f standing on his head. There's not much to beat him with, and that's the only thing.
However, we will go for a bigger price and Ed Bethell continues his link-up with Yorkshire owner David Armstrong and Sandbeck is a fast progressing filly who appeals for this race.
She won off 80 at Haydock earlier in the season, and she's finding her consistency now with a follow up victory last time at Doncaster. Both have been on genuine good ground, and her blip at Ripon over 6f could be a case she simply wants a nice flat, speedy track with wide open spaces at the minimum.
The 3yo gets that here, even if she's drawn out 17. But up to 91, she can again make her mark and her trainer has done best with her age bracket this term with 10-47 at 21%.
