Today we take two against the field EL ASTRONAUTE and EEH BAH GUM in the William Hill Leading On Course Bookmaker Sprint Handicap at York (3.45).
They are both course and distance winners who make big appeal. El Astronaute ran a cracker in the Group 2 Duke Of York Stakes at this track ten days ago and looks a big contender now at handicap level and dropping to the minimum trip.
He is a real speed merchant who should lead them up the middle to far side. Sharp 5 lbs. claimer Dylan Hogan is a shrewd booking and gives John Quinn’s six year old every chance of winning a race he came so close in last season off a 4 lbs. lower mark.
Eeh Bah Gum will love the fast ground and ran really well from a poor draw in stall 20 at last week’s Dante meeting. He finished very strongly to take fourth place and is left on the same mark of 88. He is now drawn 13 – hope you are not superstitious as his racecard number is 13 as well! – and indeed he could well be in El Asronaute’s slipstream which should give him a nice tow into the closing stages where his strong finishing kick should assist big time.
Off a nice weight of 8 – 7 he has basically the same conditions as when he ran here nine days ago but is better draw this time and that could prove the crucial difference.
Like so many UK races sponsored by bookmaking firms it’s fiercely competitive and other track specialists like Copper Knight and Duke Of Firenze command respect also. Multiple winner Leodis Dream is on a roll while A Momentofmadness would have a huge chance on best form and Colm O’Donoghue is a notable jockey booking.
But we have two on our side who will love track, trip and ground and look sure to figure in the shake-up.
York – 15:45
1/2 Point Each Way El Astonaute (11/2 Paddy Power 6 places)
1/2 Point Each Way Eeh Bah Gum (8/1 Paddy Power 6 places)
