Nick Shiambouros hopes to find the winners enclosure with a couple of selections from Kempton and Yarmouth...
"He has not lived up to his purchase price, but should develop in to a better three-year-old"
Noseda entry ready
15:00 Kempton - Staunch
Staunch should run well at a fair price in this novice stakes.
This Union Rags gelding was an expensive breeze-up purchase at the Ocala sales last spring. He was placed in a couple of similar events last year and showed some promise. He has not lived up to his purchase price, but should develop into a better three-year-old. I think he has more to offer and is reasonably priced at 9.417/2 on the exchange.
Enzemble heads the market at 3.3512/5. This colt put in a much improved effort when chasing home Rum Runner at Sandown last September. He is the main danger to the selection.
Take the Point
18:50 Yarmouth - Point Zero
Point Zero should give the short priced favourite plenty to think about in this interesting four runner affair.
This Irish import put in a solid effort when finishing third to Forward Thinker, in his first start for his new yard. He was only just denied near the line, and only beaten a neck. Further improvement is expected, and the shorter trip should suit him down to the ground.
Choco Box was all the rage at HQ last time out but disappointed behind Naval Intelligence. He had previously shaped well when finishing second on debut behind Aim Of Artemis. The shorter trip should be in his favour, but I have zero interest in backing him at 1.9720/21.
