The horse racing NAP of the Day with SportsLens tipsters on Thursday, 25 August, is Pale Moonlight. She steps up in trip for the 1m 6f handicap at Navan this afternoon (4:10). Dermot Weld’s filly looks worth a punt at tasty 2/1 odds here.
As Pale Moonlight is from a stamina laden horse racing family on the sire’s side of her pedigree, tackling this staying trip for the first time should suit. It should bring the best out of the three-year-old Free Eagle filly. She thus rates our horse racing NAP of the Day today. Here are more reasons to back her.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Pale Moonlight win?
Weld loves nothing more than training horses from Pale Moonlight’s family. Her sire is out of Polished Gem, the mare that produced superstar staying talent like Falcon Eight, Kyprios and Search For A Song. With such a reliable granddam, it’s no wonder that the best betting sites in the UK respect Pale Moonlight.
Connections have been patience with her, slowly stepping her up in trip as this season has gone on. Pale Moonlight ended last term with juvenile handicap success at Gowran Park over Mister Wilson, who won his next two starts. That horse racing result shows she was clearly bred to be better than a Flat mark of 55.
After being never near to challenge in a Cork handicap on reappearance, Pale Moonlight shaped far better when a close third to Heather Bear at Naas. The winner has since gone in again to complete a hat-trick and be rated 73. That effort from Pale Moonlight came under Jake Coen, who again takes the ride and a valuable 5lb off with his claim here.
Today’s horse racing NAP of the Day weighted to go one better
She was then an unlucky loser at the Galway Festival last time out. Pale Moonlight got chinned on the line by a subsequent Curragh winner, Star Image who was ridden by Coen that day, now rated 87. That makes her own revised mark of 69 look very workable going further up in distance to a trip that horse racing betting sites believe will suit her even better.
Taking Coen’s claim into account, Pale Moonlight is effectively 1lb lower than her nose defeat at Galway. She just had to be our horse racing NAP of the Day for 25 August as a result.
