Racing: Nautical Star to sail in over right distance
HYPERION'S TV TIPS
Wednesday 21 April 1999
2.05: The locally-trained THE FUGATIVE, who is twice a course and distance winner, had a pipe-opener on the all-weather this month and should have the softish ground she needs to be seen at her best. Stylish Ways made a promising comeback at Newmarket last week, but will be at a relatively short price in what is a rather tricky handicap. The well-drawn Ron's Pet (who is blinkered for the first time today) is well handicapped on his best form and has won twice on the all-weather since joining that astute trainer, Karl Burke. Halmanerror was having his first outing since July when a promising second to Indian Blaze at Folkestone last month, but his stable is still out of form.
2.35: The Classic entries DALIAPOUR (2,000 Guineas and Derby) and Lightning Arrow (Derby) should dominate. Overnight rain could make the going ideal for Daliapour, beaten around a length by Boatman at Newbury in September. He slammed Roger Charlton's colt by eight lengths in a rematch on soft ground at Ascot the following month on 5lb better terms. Trio, now with Nigel Hamilton, is held by Daliapour on last season's form.
3.10: As he is much more effective at 1m4f than 1m2f, it was a highly promising performance from NAUTICAL STAR to be beaten just seven lengths over the shorter distance when finishing seventh of 20 in the highly-competitive Rosebery Handicap at Kempton 16 days ago. A bold show looks guaranteed this afternoon, and he can outpoint both the recent Newmarket winner Minivet and Kieren Fallon's mount Red Ramona.
3.45: FAHS can register a an early success for new trainer Nigel Hamilton. Well treated on his third to Shadoof over this course and distance last June, Fahs catches the eye at the morning prices and looks good value to take a competitive contest in which Dower House and Zurs are just two of the dangers. Dower House should go well, having run the winner, Shiva, to 23/4 lengths in the Earl Of Sefton at the Craven meeting.
