KIMBERELLA HAS IT STALL GOING FOR HIM; Tylicki to Breeze Up Musselburgh's Fast Lane Olivia's Worth the Fallowing

Article excerpt

Byline: GARRY OWEN

THE fast track to the poor hoose is paved with the bones of punters backing horses deemed unlucky last time out.

I'm well aware of these words of wisdom but I'm of the opinion KIMBERELLA (3.45) can exorcise the ghost of a genuine hardluck story at Epsom by winning the William Hill Scottish Sprint Cup at TURN TO P2 FROM PAGE ONE Musselburgh. Dandy Nicholls' sprinter has been in great nick this season but was cruelly denied his day in the sun last Saturday.

Strongly fancied at 10-1 for the Epsom Dash, it all went Pete Tong for KIMBERELLA (3.45) yet the Kyllachy gelding still ended up finishing a short-head second.

The six-year-old fell out the stalls in a manner reminiscent of myself debarking a taxi after a few shandies. But Frederik Tylicki's partner crept back into the race and switched wide for a run in the final furlong he just failed to get up. Kimberella remains on a fair mark and has an excellent box right on the stands' rail.

Paul Midgley's OLIVIA FALLOW (3.10) ran a personal best when runner-up over course and distance a fortnight ago and has the opportunity to race off 1lb lower. Joe Doyle further reduces her burden and trap 15 up the stands' rail should be a bonus.

At York, NAYEL has still got plenty more to offer. The latematuring Acclamation colt looked as though he'd appreciate this step up in trip when showing a good attitude to win round here last month and the booking of Katie Walsh sends out all the right signals.

FELIX LEITER (2.25) dug deep to pick up his first success for a while at Lingfield last time and a 6lb rise seems fair for the son of Monsieur Bond, who has a course success on his CV from his juvenile days. Claimer Clifford Lee gets on well with the chestnut and they could take a bit of pegging back.

MUTAKAYYEF (3.00) is a classy sort and its interesting connections have gelded him and kept the faith.

The son of Sea The Stars went close in a 9f Group 3 on his 2015 return here last summer and with few miles on the clock, the Al Maktoum-owned five-year-old is very much one to keep on side. …
