Market Rasen - ground is now soft, and it gets pretty soft here.
12.30 Lts of lightly raced types and the ground is the key factor. Both Free Throtle and Make Me A Fortune have decent levels of form but this oft ground is a concern. Danby's Legend ran prety well in a decent hurdle over this course and distance on similar ground recently and with that being his debut, improvement is expected for the in form stable.
1/2 pt ew Danby's Legend @ 16/1
1.00 All 4 of the field have decent chances and I would advise putting all 4 into your placepot ! No Bet
1.30 Suburban Bay showed that he handles very soft ground last time with a very easy win at Kempton,but that was a very weak contest and was over further , and of course he's up in the weights. The softer the better for Spanish Arch, who has a good weight and only this tricky rack can beat him.
3/4 pt win Spanish Arch @ 11/2
2.05 The ground has gone wrong for both Al Co and Greyfriars Drumming. Going Wrong is very well handicapped, he goes on the ground but the trip is a concern, but he has his first run for very much in form rookie trainer Dan kelton and he's worth chancing.
1/2 pt win Going Wrong @ 11/2
2.40 This is Wily Fox's ground and course but he's not great value and I prefer Beat The Shower, who is very well weighted and will like the conditions and his small stable isn't going badly.Cloudy Bob put in a badone last time and his stable is quiet, while the ground will be plenty soft enough for Andrea Bambaleo

Chepstow- ground is heavy.
12.40 It was quite a decent novices hurdle which Bajan Blu ran in last time over course and distance in the mud, and he led them a merry old dance until the better horses out their pace to the race and he weakened out of it. He should certainly improve for that run and is failr priced to strike today.Some top stables are represented here but the likes of Reverb, Veratan and Vujiyama will have to improve on their recent runs. Going Concern ran a shocker last time but Buywise is well though of and is the danger.
1/2 pt ew Bajan Blu @ 14/1
1.10 Shalimyr has a monster task lumping over 12 stone today, but thankfully Conor Beasley takes weight off his back. He won really well at Southwell in the mud in an Ok race last time and though that was over further he can cope with this shorter trip. There is little to beat and he is well priced.
1.25 pts win Shalamiyr @ 10/3
1.40 Tigresse Bleu created a huge impression when sauntering home at Wincantoj in the mud recently. He's lightly raced but he's 4/7 , so I wont be playing. Kalamill looks easily the best of the rest and has an each way shout @ 6/1 NO Bet
2.15v Not a great contest and Alborz can win for favourite players. This youngster relishes heavy ground, and though he's a touch high in the weights has little to beat.
1.25 pts win Alborz @ 5/2
2.50 The ground is the key factor and Un Anjou looks good . He's in good form and likes the ground. He's up in trip today and breeding suggests that it is a smart move.
1.25 pts win Un Anjou @ 11/4
3.20 A stayers handicap chase and bottom weight Jim Bob Jones catches the eye.He ran his best race ever last time out at Southwell in the mud, and off the same mark has great each way possiblities. He's up a lot in trip but he wasn't stopping at Southwell and at the odds worth the risk as there is little to beat.
3/4 pt ew Jim Bob Jones
3.50 This rests between the market leaders Ifyouthinkso and Just Cloudy and I give the nod to the former whose stamina is guaranteed.
1/2 pt win Ifyouthinkso @ 11/4
Wincanton - good ground on this pretty quick track
12.50 A dificult opener and it's for inexperienced jockeys. Don't Call Me Oscar couf=ght my eye a few runs ago at Chepstow when running a god race in a decent novice hurdle. This ground will suit him a lot better, he's well handicapped and the jockey has ridden winners.
1/2 pt ew Dont Call Me Oscar @ 28/1
1.20 Miss Tenacious is just what she is and has excellent course stats, but she is high in the weights. Mon Chevalier came on last season and runs well fresh and comes here with a good chance. Benny The Swinger is also a toch high in the weights but is consistent and honest. I give the nod to Cruise in Style who will welcome the return to both the trip and this better ground.
1/2 pt win Cruise in Style @ 9/2
1.50 Sound Investment goes handicapping on a very fair mark and is the one to beat. Beachfire has to prove he gest this trip in a competitive race. The tip is Carrigmorna King, who is running well off this mark and has conditions to suit.Foxcub has stamina to prove while Decoy could well get outpaced on this easy track.
1pt ew Carrigmorna King @ 6/1
2.25 Lightly raced types and which of Knight of Noir, Lumpy's Gold and Swallowshide will win is most uncertain, and the bookies prices are about right, so there's no value bet. No Bet
3.00 Tante Sissi was a decent type a few seasons ago but wasn't at her best last season and it remains to be seen if she retains her ability Golden Gel, is another whose wellbeing is under scrutiny. Steady Girlfriend is another lightly raced type but when last seen was running well enough to win off this mark and she's a big price.
1/2 pt win Steady Girlfriend @ 14/1
3.30 Richmond won pulling a cart on his first run for Ventia Williams in the mud at Lingfield . But he's now way up in the weights and this better ground is far from sure to suit. Also he's lightly raced, so this race could well come to soon. Highbury High is running really well on this ground and of his mark and is decently priced for the upset.
1.25 pts win Highbury High @ 7/2
Kempton- all weather- polytrack
4.10 A claimer full of decent types who can't win off their handicap marks so run inlower class. Both Electric Qatar and R Woody are favoured by the weights and are both well drawn . Rothesay Chancer has come a long way for this and is another suited to by the weights but has never done much at this trip. Alis Aquilae is not suited by the weights but is running really well and is a very genuine perfomer.
1/2 pt ew Alis Aquilae @ 10/1
4.40 Debt Settler is up in trip and in the weights and has a lot to prove. The form of Bazooka is nothing special off his mark. Porteous is well weighted and returns on a fair mark and is taking to the surface has every chance. I'm going for Sweet Angelica who has run tow recent very sound racesand can go close on her all weather debut.
1/2 pt win Sweet Angelica @ 7/1
5.10 Pretty Bubbles is a consistent type, especially over course and distance and comes out just about the best in at the weights.

6.10 Tasrih is lightly raced and improving and can't be ruled out. Dixie's Dream and Ree's Rascal both have the form to figure but have absences and their stables are a bit quiet. Indian Jack did better last time but is till a touch igh in the weights. The tip is bottom weight Thistleandtworoses, who ran really well here last time after missing the break. He's been eased a bit in the weights and looks good for the frame at least. Mister Musicamaster is down in the weights and is a very interesting longshot @ 28/1
3/4 pt ew Thistleandtworoses @ 11/1
6.40 PREMIUM RACE
7.10 Common Touch surprised last time and despite being up in the weights is the one to beat. The likes of Clockmaker, Loyalty,George Guru and Brownseas Brink all need further while Favourite Treat ran a shocker last time out. Tarooq and Birdman find this trip a little far, Atalantis Crossing ran Ok on his first run for some time and this course specialist has a very decent each way shout.
1/2 pt ew Atantis Crossing @ 14/1
7.40 Showbaoting is on a 4 timer but he's high in the weights and is away from his favured heavy ground. Corporal Maddox ran really well in a better race last time and has a good chance in this field.
