Derintoher Yank looks likely to get his own way in front

4.20 Bangor  DERINTOHER YANK   2.5pts ew @ 20/1

Derintoher Yank on occasions has looked the sort to not need much of a reason to chuck it in, but in fairness he has had legitimate excuses in his four runs following a CD second back in May from a 6lb higher mark. Here in August over three furlongs farther he got involved for a battle for the lead & paid the price late on. Prior to that at Perth he patently failed to stay three miles, while before that at Aintree in June he was hampered on the run-in. As for his chasing attempt at Cartmel in May, the less said the better. I feel Donald McCain’s 6yo has so much in his favour here he must warrant an each-way bet. He’s dropped some 8lb in the weights since going handicapping in April. The drop back to the minimum trip on a track which with it’s many turns favours a front-runner, particularly when like the selection here, they look likely to get their own way out in front. The drying ground is a major plus, the first-time hood must be another positive, as does Will Kennedy being in the saddle, a jockey who knows how to get the best from the selection. Finally, Donald McCain has freshened his hurdler up with a two month break & it was this time of the year in 2016 he landed the first of his two novice hurdle wins. Harry Whittingdon’s Salto Chisco is one of several hurdlers I seem to have backed at the wrong time this season, as after disappointing for no apparent reason at Ffos Las in June, the 9yo proceeded to win at Newton Abbot the following month. He’s likely to be popular to follow up here from 4lb higher, but I’m not sure what the form of that six-runner win is worth. One likely to be poor value is the topweight Capitoul. Bought by Dr Richard Newland for 22k at the Arqana Autumn sales in France, he made a winning debut in a heavy ground Ayr maiden hurdle last December, followed by a fall when beaten in a Wetherby handicap the following month. He’s just 2lb lower here & with Sam Twiston-Davis booked is likely to be under-priced. Alex Dunn’s Argus should be spot-on having run on the flat at Chepstow just over a fortnight ago. The ground will suit the 5yo, although I’m not sure his four-runner novice hurdle win warrants a rating of 114. Nicky Henderson’s 6yo Barman is handicapped to go close on his best form but has disappointed in his last two runs. Jonjo runs Pop Rockstar, having his first run since February. Looking at his breeding, the 5yo might need a softer surface than this drying surface will provide.
