Lot 56 - Another Nightcap (IRE)

Purchaser: Caroline Bailey.
Price: £32,000

Review: Making his racing debut at Maisemore Park, Gloucestershire, on the first weekend of the current British point-to-point season this horse ran a promising race when finishing second in a competitive four- and five-year-old maiden race. He seemed likely to win off the final bend, but the concession of 7lb to the exciting filly The Player Queen proved just too much, and he was beaten three lengths after being eased near the line. The third horse was 12 lengths adrift. Another Nightcap comes from a yard that is steadily producing a sequence of young pointers that go on to make a mark under Rules. He is a half-brother to two winners, and his dam is a half-sister to three winners, headed by the Gr.2 bumper winner Karanja. Further family members include the very smart Potentate and Thetford Forest, who each won ten races over jumps.
