King Of Comedy to have the Last Laugh (Yarmouth April 23)

King Of Comedy races at Great Yarmouth
3.35 Yarmouth Eastern Power Systems Of Norwich Novice Stakes

Yarmouth's first meeting of the flat season has a great novice stakes race on the card so I will mention a few that could run well. 

Cool Exhibit: Showcasing colt owned by Mr Mohammed Sultan and trained by Simon Crisford.Cool Exhibit wasn't fancied on his debut as a 2-year-old, starting at odds of 12/1, but he soon put the race to bed and looked a horse going to Royal Ascot with entries In the Windsor Castle Stakes(Listed) and the Coventry Stakes(Group 2), but wasn't seen again till he turned three. His race last month saw him finish third to Fox Champion in what looked a hot novice race over seven furlongs. His third outing sees him move up to a mile which would push his stamina to the limit. 

King Of Comedy (Pictured): Kingman Colt owned by Lady Bamford and trained by John Gosden. King Of Comedy ran twice as a 2-year-old, first run was in a Class 4 race at Sandown in July, made 2/1 favourite he quickened up impressively to beat the 100 rated Persian Moon by over 2-lengths. Given a Champagne Stakes Group 2 entry was the next step but never ran until a disappointing effort in a class 5 novice event in November, I have a feeling the soft ground was the problem and back on good to firm ground and stepping up to a mile is a big plus for me. 

Crystal Tribe: Dansili colt owned by Lord Lloyd Webber and trained by William Haggas.Another who has only had one run to date and also finished down the field behind Fox Chairman on April 13th, I guess with a starting price of 3/1 on his debut better was expected. Sir Lloyd Webber normally buys some decent horses with the likes of Too Darn Hot and Lah Ti Dar on the list so I will be interested to see if there is any market support for Crystal Tribe again. 

Dr Jekyll: Scat Daddy Colt owned by Mrs Fitri Hay and trained by D Simcock who was purchased for 350,000 gns as a yearling and is worth a market check.

Edarrat: Exceed and excel gelding owned by Mr Hamdan Al Maktoum and trained by Roger Varian, interestingly he will be ridden by Ryan Moore for his debut who has had nine rides for Roger over the past 3 seasons and won only once, another who would need to be seriously backed for me to get involved. 

Saeed Bin Suroor turns up triple handed and none of his entrants had a Group entry last season so it would be wise to check the betting on his three. 

Conclusion: I really like King of Comedy and hope he can get his career back on track after his disappointing effort last time out but as a bet, I would imagine he will be too short. Crystal Tribe could be worth an each way bet if the price allows but wouldn't want him to be a market drifter. 

Reviews: Two I mentioned last week was Making history who produced a disappointing effort at Nottingham and another on the same card was First In Line who ran a promising debut after starting slow and finishing strong to take second place, looking forward to his next run and interested to see if this Derby hope is given a bigger test in stamina next time out. Thanks for reading.
