It must be Musaanada at Yar­mouth

Warwickshire Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE -

MUSAANADA can se­cure a valu­able turf suc­cess in the Nor­folk Cham­ber Of Com­merce Hand­i­cap at Yar­mouth.

Be­ing from the fam­ily of Fame And Glory and a daugh­ter of Sea The Stars, Musaanada clearly al­ready has a hefty pad­dock value that can only be fur­ther en­hanced by suc­cess on the track.

De­spite be­ing a rel­a­tively late ar­rival on the racing scene, Musaanada made an ideal start for Wil­liam Hag­gas when land­ing an av­er­age Kemp­ton maiden last month, break­ing slowly but stay­ing on well over a mile and a half.

The form of that win might not stack up to much, but an open­ing mark of 75 does not look in­sur­mount­able for this 235,000 guineas pur­chase.

San­torini can make a win­ning start in the hand­i­cap sphere in the Op­ti­mist De­sign Ltd Hand­i­cap.

Henry Candy’s charge made quite an im­pres­sion on his be­lated race­course bow at Wind­sor ear­lier this month, win­ning by a length with the min­i­mum of fuss.

That was far from the best race run at the track this year, but San­torini still man­aged to pre­vail de­spite do­ing lit­tle to help him­self by tak­ing a strong early hold.

The hand­i­cap­per has awarded him a start­ing perch of 75 and he can make strides from there.

Shut­ter Speed is another well­bred in­di­vid­ual and it will be dis­ap­point­ing if she does not take a hand in the fin­ish of the Breed­ers Back­ing Racing EBF Maiden Fil­lies’ Stakes.

Mul­ti­ple Aus­tralian Group One win­ner Foreteller fea­tures in her fam­ily tree and as a daugh­ter of Dan­sili, hopes will surely be high for the John Gos­den-trained filly.

Mis­ter Man­duro had plenty of op­tions in the com­ing days so it is per­haps telling that Mark John­ston has plumped for the Park­lands Mini Golf Team Build­ing Events Maiden Auc­tion Stakes at New­cas­tle.

As his name sug­gests, this colt is a son of Man­duro and with just one start un­der his belt to date, he looks the type who will progress with time.

Third at Sandown on his de­but, Mis­ter Man­duro fluffed the start com­pletely that day but once back on an even keel, he ran on in a most pleas­ing fash­ion.

This looks an ideal op­por­tu­nity to get a win on the board tack­ling a mile once again.

All eyes will be on The New One as he makes his fenc­ing bow in the 188Bet Best Mate Be­gin­ners’ Chase at Ex­eter.

A top-rank per­former in the hur­dles di­vi­sion for the last four years, he fell short on the big days last term and it did look as though his years were per­haps catch­ing up a bit with him.

It there­fore makes rea­son­able sense to have a cut over fences and this two-mile-one-fur­long heat looks a suit­able start­ing point for Nigel Twis­ton-Davies’s run­ner.
