Selected Southwell- all weather- fibresand
11.30 The consistent When apoet comes here with a clear form chance and as his trainer is the top man here, you would expect him to handle the surface . Fenjal won well here last time, but does have a 6 pound penalty.
¼ pt win Whenapoet @ 2/1
12.35 Amouri Gleam sprung a 100/1 shot when winning here on debut. The longer trip looks a smart move and despite the penalty, fair odds of the double .
¼ pt win Amouri Gleam @ 5/1
1.10 This will take little wining and as Roman De Brut returned to form with a good 3rd over C&D recently, that could be good enough to take this.
¼ pt win Roman De Brut @ 5/1
2.20 Champagne Mondays comes here on the back of an excellent 3rd over C&D in a far stronger race and that gives him very decent claims in this .
¼ pt ew Champagne Mondays @ 6/1
2.55 Di’s Gift comes here on the back of a good 3rd over C&D in far better race and as only real serious challenger Cosmogyral is new to the surface , and the stable has never had a winner here, will be very hard to beat.
¾ pt win Dis Gift @ 2/1
3.30 A weak finale and recent C&D winner Anna Jemeela is going to be hard to beat. But I wont be playing at even money
Suggested Southwell placepot
Selected Kelso- good ground on this undulating and sharp track
11.45 The consistent Mighty Thunder brings the best form to the table and as he’s fine on the ground and has run well over C&D, this could be his big day.
½ pt win Mighty Thunder @ 3/1
12.15 Geronimo knuckled down well to win in the Newcastle mud last time, but drying ground , a testing mark and a sharp track , makes the double tough. Lough Derg Farmer will again run his race while Scotswell and Amilliontimes are a pair of veterans who are not out of this as both have good C&D form on the ground .
¼ pt rev fc Amilliontimes – Scotswell
12.50 PREMIUM RACE
1.25 PREMIUM RACE
2.00 Despite the penalty, recent C&D winner Goldencard has little to beat and looks a most solid fav.
¾ pt win Goldencard @ 15/8
Suggested Kelso placepot
Selected Doncaster – good ground on this flat and galloping track
11.50 A tough opener but the nod goes to the capable Dexcite who was still in with a chance when taking a late fall last time.
¼ pt ew Dexcite @ 9/1
12.20 The quicker ground will test Hold the Note while Seven De Braune’s form is a bit in an out. Senior Citizen comes here on the back of two excellent runs and chanced on this quicker track.
¼ pt win Senior Citizen @ 4/1
12.55 Not a deep juvenile hurdle and worth sticking with Queen Adelaide who brings the best form to the table .
¼ pt win Queen Adelaide @ 4/1
1.30 A stack of in form chases and hat-trick chasing Miletrain has to be on the short list , and at pretty good odds. Station Master comes here on the back of 2 good runs, but concerns regarding this speed track. Cabaret Queen looked a young chaser n the up when landing a double in the Summer and returned to duties with an encouraging 5th last time at Ascot . With the ground in her favour and probably the C&D , a nice ew bet, despite there being other front runners in the field .
¼ pt ew Cabaret Queen @ 11/1
2.05 An excellent Class 1 chase for mares and the short priced fav is the bang in form Lady Buttons, but the longer trip and quicker ground are against her. Rene’s Girl and Atanta Breeze are a couple od highly capable and talented mares who like the trip and ground but preference is for the front running Drinks interval, who should handle the drop in trip.
¾ pt win Drinks Interval @ 4/1
3.15 The return to hurdles will certainly hep Enniscoffey Oscar who is 2 from 2 here, likes the ground and his 5th ina big field at Aintree is the stand out piece of form in this . The admirable Commander Barry has a bit to do off this mark and trip.
½ pt win Enniscoffey Oscar @ 3/1
Suggested Doncaster placepot
Selected Newbury- good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.50 Dragon D’ estruval has to be respected on better ground down in grade but the consistent I’m a Game Changer is unlikely to be far away and a nice ew bet.
¼ pt ew I’m A Game Changer 7/1
2.25 He’s not the horse he was, but carole’s destrier has dropped to a good mark and in a race where the market leaders are mostly running under penalties, could get back to winning ways .
¼ pt ew Caroles Destrier @ 12/1
3.00 A red hot Grade 1 novice chase and the short priced fav Champ will certainly know he’s been in arace. You can make a case for all of these but I really like the way Coolanly won last time and carries my money.
¼ pt win Coolanly @ 10/1
3.35 The 3 last time winners all have hefty penalties and none really suit the race make up. Onefitzall was fancied in both of his runs last year, but never got close. On his first start for Nicky Henderson, could provide a bit of ashock.
½ pt win Onefitzall @ 8/1
Selected Leopardstown- good ground on this flat and galloping track
12.10 Not many here will appreciate the drying ground or this speedy c&D. Just for Cracking has clear claims but so does longshot Crocodile Dundee whose form at this trip and ground gives hi a really solid chance.
½ pt ew Crocodile Dundee @ 18/1
12.45 PREMIUM RACE
1.20 PREMIUM RACE
1.55 Delta Work looks destined to reach the top and this is another stepping stone for this odds on shot.
2.30 Petite Moucher didn’t really set the world alight over fences but this front runner loves this C&D, handles quick ground and is certainly good enough to win this on his best form.
½ pt win Petit Moucher @ 16/1
