The Appy Chappy Cup – 23rd July 2016 – London Bridge Racecourse


The Appy Chappy Cup

“I am Loopy De Loop, the good wolf.”

A small field lines up for the 2300m feature and Snow Brigade is the standout. The daughter of Comforting Sounds could add some silverware when she contests The Appy Chappy Cup at London Bridge Racecourse today. Armageddon Rachel seldom runs a bad race and has shown the kind of versatility and heart that brings him into top three consideration here. Burgerzfortheboys is another man that we would be foolish to ignore in a race of this nature and he saddles the proven stayer Sav Show Kagawa. Jc Cashaw rides the 8yo stallion Kakita Rensei who will have to put his best foot forward here to be considered. Gedanst is never far off the action and have claims at best.

1. Snow Brigade

8yo mare from Woogle Wood, Career earnings: $5,397,244
Overall rating: Tremendous(74) – Natural champion

Stable comments: – “Snow Brigade is coming off a spell; she was in foal, and therefore missed a few weeks’ training, so her OR could be higher. But she is in good nick, has reasonable XP, and in Lupe Smouse has a decent apprentice on top. Burgers, Pegasus (an epic specialist) and Smoggie all look live dangers. Hopeful, never expectant.”

2. Marine Gunner

7yo stallion from La Academia, Career earnings: $1,725,329
Overall rating: Reasonable(53)

Stable comments: – “Marine Gunner is one of the weaker competitors and comes running last weekend. I have no expectations of getting a good position, only gain experience and do their best.”

3. Armageddon Rachel

10yo stallion from Smogville, Career earnings: $2,359,289
Overall rating: Excellent(64)

Stable comments: – “Armageddon Rachel. Not one of my greatest horses, more of an experiment with unbroken over epics. XP has been difficult to build, but the conditions will suit if it hangs on to good come Saturday. The short distance of 2300m will also suit. The horse will be running as if it’s a sprint no doubt, I just hope the jockey can hold on. Should be good enough to finish in the money, I’ll be a very happy chappy if it can get 3rd.”

4. Sav Show Kagawa

10yo mare from Burgersfortheboyz, Career earnings: $4,372,300
Overall rating: Tremendous(72)

Stable comments: – “Sav Show Kagawa will be looking to kick some goals in the Appy Cappy cup final. Apprentice Roop has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few weeks and a strong finish which could see her on the podium would make her very Appy indeed.”

5. Banshee Snick

10yo stallion from HRNZ STABLES, Career earnings: $4,373,666
Overall rating: Excellent(61) – Competitive

Stable comments: – “Note sure I’ll win, I see Woogle Wood has a good one in, but my horse is good and never out of money, being an apprentice race anything could happen. Definitely┬á a chance though.”

6. Kakita Rensei

8yo stallion from Pegasus, Career earnings: $2,589,641
Overall rating: Marvelous(78) – Natural champion

Stable comments: – “In an interview manager of stable Mr. Andrew Stewart commented: “Our horse is one of the best for that age, well trained and I’m confident we can get the win. We believe in that horse and think can be a real winner for Pegasus stables. Still do not forget apprentice jockeys, can be the bigger part of this race. We’re going for the win. I still think no1 horse will take it. I have the better horse but the other jockey is far better than mine. Awe inspiring in everything. But will try, my horse is better. ­čÖé “

7. Swiss Enchanted

8yo stallion from Priory Park, Career earnings: $740,939
Overall rating: Reasonable(52)

Stable comments: – “A bit low on OR”

8. Gedanst

10yo stallion from TiltaWhirl, Career earnings: $6,643,211
Overall rating: Grand(66) – Breakaway

Stable comments: – “Last year for Gedanst, horse been a good earner & has surprised me in numerous races, hope he’s got one left. Pam’s only run 4 races at the distance so bit of a wildcard there.”
