Cee Jay ticks all boxes
Cee Jay ticks enough boxes in an ‘aged’ Maiden stakes over five furlongs of Chelmsford polytrack tonight and should make it make it seventh time lucky, by default!
Eleven days ago we ‘swerved’ Cee Jay for a six furlongs maiden because Jeremy Noseda’s charge was drawn twelve and widest; in his infinite wisdom Jim Crowley jumped this Kyllachy colt out of the stalls in an attempt to make all and beat the draw; does it ever work?
Two out it seemed likely to succeed but Cee Jay folded rapidly in the closing stages and was actually third to Rhyhthm And Blues, Spirit Glance also passed him close home; has Crowley advised Noseda to try the minimum trip?
We’re totally convinced this isn’t the answer but there again Cee Jay is sufficiently superior and drawn one!
Both Dominance and long absentee Corridor Kid are sure to be well-backed and one or two others can’t be dismissed but this is a race for Cee Jay to lose!
Don’t oppose my nap!
Half an hour later Summer Isles attempts to recoup last-time-out losses in an ‘aged’ handicap over five furlongs; ‘thrown-in’ and mount of Graham Lee.
No need to look the opposition, there isn’t any if Summer Isles hits anything like several time-handicap marks achieved this season.
Tangraam attempts a quick-fire hat-trick under top-weight in the ‘aged’ handicap over ten furlongs; Dean Ivory’s charge stormed home seven days ago and carries a 7lbs penalty. It’s a bit too soon, he needs to improve again and preference is for the progressive Karnage.
Lee Rockefeller has been supplemented for the Champion Hurdle on Tuesday at a cost of £20000; this is no forlorn hope, by any means.
