Peachey a tasty proposition
all-weather jockey, and currently
leading the way in the 2017 title chal-
lenge, will achieve his objective with
more solid chances similar to Peachey
Carnehan in the seven-runner Maid-
en Auction Stakes over seven furlongs
of Wolverhampton tapeta today; it's
all about getting on the right horses,
agents play a major part!
That was so evident last year when Tony
Hind 'piloted' Jim Crowley to his first 'of-
ficial' and annual championship which led
to his man being appointed contract jock-
ey for Hamdan Al Maktoum, arguably the
best job in racing and, of course, extremely
Successful agents earn big bucks but
they need 100 percent response from the
saddle; Crowley and Kirby certainly dedi-
cate themselves to the task, leaving punters
happy for the most part. If you can't beat
'em, join them!
It is difficult to imagine either being the
slightest bit 'iffy' and isn't it satisfying to
know you are betting genuine tryers?
Peachey Carnehan will be off for his life
in an attemt to make it sixth time lucky;
significantly 'Kirbs' was aboard for the
first time, nine days ago, when Michael
Attwater's charge achieved a 'career-best'
time-figure on Lingfield polytrack.
Prior to that 'Peachey' shaped well on
Newcastle tapeta; a replication of his re-
cent effort should suffice to finally nail that
elusive success. Napped.
Just A Idea surfaced after scrutiny of
a three year old Maiden Stakes over six
furlongs of Lingfield polytrack; hopefully
champion Luke Morrfis will 'blast it' from
the outset and outclass five moderate rivals.
An absence isn't a concern but it could for
Stuart Kittow-trained Dizzey Heights in
the concluding ten-runner Maiden Fillies'
Stakes over ten furlongs.
Four-year-old Dizzey Heights hasn't
raced for 233 days but Kittow is a shrewdie;
watch the market.
Preference has to be for once-raced,
Hugo Palmer-trained, Nurse Nightingale,
one of five mounts for champion appren-
tice, Josephine Gordon, whose application
has been impressive and rewarding.
Gosden, Stoute, Haggas and Noseda are
all represented in this finale.

Duty takes Grade
The Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the
Cheltenham Festival is the likely next port
of call for Death Duty after he extended his
winning run at Naas, yesterday.
Having won each of his three previous starts over
hurdles, Gordon Elliott's star youngster was the
5-6 favourite for what turned out to be a dramatic
renewal of the Lawlor's Hotel Novice Hurdle.
Turcagua cut out much of the running in the
two-and-a-half-mile Grade One, but was strongly
pressed by both Death Duty and Jack Kennedy and
Augusta Kate under Ruby Walsh in the straight.
The latter pair began to assert on the run to the
final flight and rose almost as one, but Augusta
Kate - owned by a syndicate that includes Alan
Shearer, Lee Westwood and Ant & Dec - crashed
out to leave the market leader in the clear.
Death Duty kept up the gallop and passed the
post with nine lengths in hand over Turcagua,
with the winner's stablemate Blood Crazed Tiger
a close-up third.
Sky Bet reacted by trimming Death Duty to 9-4
favourite from 11-4 for the Albert Bartlett, and
Elliott confirmed that three-mile contest as his
Augusta Kate's trainer Willie Mullins reported
the smart mare to be none the worse following
her heavy fall.
Asked whether Augusta Kate could run again
before the Festival, Mullins said: "We'll see how
she comes out of the race and go from there."
Security takes down Turbojet
Art Of Security mowed down long-time leader
Turbojet to claim top honours in the INH Stallion
Owners European Breeders Fund Maiden Hurdle
The winner of a Navan bumper last season, the
Noel Meade-trained Art Of Security disappointing
on his first two starts over obstacles, but raised his
game to finish third behind the high-class Bacardys
at Leopardstown over the festive period.
Turbojet, the 3-1 joint-favourite along Arvico
Bleu, set out to make all the running, but his stride
began to shorten on the run to the final flight.
Art Of Security was almost on terms on jump-
ing the obstacle and picked up well on the run-in
to score by two and three-quarter lengths under
Turbojet had just enough in the tank to hold onto
the runner-up spot from Arvico Bleu.
Meade said: "I thought he'd win as he ran very
well in Leopardstown. Sean thought the ground
was a bit quick for him then and said he was flat
out from the second-last.
"He won a bumper on soft ground and I think
he's a reasonable horse.
"I suppose he'll go for a winner's race, but we'll
see what way the handicapper rates him.
"It's so difficult at the moment because no
matter what race you go for, a Grade Three or a
Grade One, they are all the same and you run into
the same horses.
"It's the same for any of those horses that win.
The next step is a big one."
Black Zero was a 7-1 winner of the Eastcoast
Seafood & Gouldings Hardware Handicap Chase
for trainer Michael McDonagh and jockey Mark
Enright said: "Over two miles with the blinkers
back on him today, he travelled sweetly.
"He stays well. He doesn't really quicken but
he stays and was idling up the straight.
"Michael's not here. I'm sure I'll speak to him
later and he'll be delighted with that.
"He's a very nice man and does well with the
horses he has. It's lovely to ride a winner for him
as he's been good to me lately."
