Selected Lingfield- Very soft ground on this undulating and sharp track
2.15 A great opportunity for smiths Cross, but the bookies agree making him odds on. He has the best form at both the trip and ground , but has looked slow in the finish of late coming here on the back of 3 seconds, and may need this returning from a 2 months break . Karakorum showed much improved form last time in the Ffos Las mud, being held up and staying on nicely for 3rd. A reproduction makes him a nice ew bet.

Selected Carlisle- good to soft on this undulating, stiff and galloping track
2.00 As this stiff track is unlikely to be of benefit to the capable Champagne Court or to newcomer over hurdles vis A Vis, who is a lofty rated 93 on the flat , but best form on good ground , chance for the consistent Hill sixteen to upgrade a series of good placed efforts to a deserved win, and no issues with ground or C&d.
1/2pt Win Hill Sixteen @ 3/1
2.30 Tim Vaughn has a terrific record here and runs the back to form nd down in grade Champagne Chaser .Both Petite Ganache and Wig wam wiggle won well last time, but both are penalised and both a bit to prove on softer ground.

3.00 Clear chances can be given to all of the inform trio of Native Robin, absolutely Dylan and pookie pekan but I’d rather play the well handicapped and likeable, but hard to pronounce Ueueteotl, who has had few runs in the last year or so, but ran well last time and has hit the frame in all 3 tries here.

4.05 The likes of Arthur’s Gift, Blakemount and Very First time are all on good marks and should be fine over C&D and trip , but recent runs disappointing , as have been recent runs by Newtown Lad and Minella Daddy.whose stable is really struggling of late. The good stable of Warren greatrex has sent only one runner on the 575 mile round trip in Groundunderrepair, who shapes very much as this stiff C&D will suit and no problems with the ground. Champion jocket Dicky Johnson takes the ride and all that pts me off is that the stable has only had 1 winner in 7 tries here, so time for another !!

4.40 dorking Cock zipped in at sandown just a few days ago on similar ground and has no penalty , so understandable he’s a short priced fav , but the stable is 0 from 10 here. Larch hill fnally got it right last time, but preference is for Broughtons admiral , a good 2nd last time at Exeter to one who has won well since, so C&d and ground should be fine.
1/2pt Ew Broughton’s admiral @ 11/1
Newcastle- all weather – tapeta- The track is stiff and galloping
5.00 camile is very well handicapped on her return to the flat after a good win over hurdles last time , her first run for Iain Jardine . who has a good record here. She is however untried on this specialist surface while most of her rivals are regulars here. Highway Robbery is a bit in and out , but has dropped to a good mark and worth a dabble at long odds.
1/4pt ew Highway Robber @ 22/1
5.30 Best to concentrate on the trio with good C&D form in short priced fav Giocomo Casanova, who’s a harsh 7 pounds higher for his recent win, Sister of the Sign, who made all here recently , and only up 3 pounds and One One Seven . who has run well on all tries here. As she is likely to get the run of the race up front, small play on Sister.
1/4pts Win Sister of The Sign @ 6/1
6.00 Lion Hearted comes here on a 4 timer including two facile wins here and has no penalty. He goes up in trip, and while this has been a problem in the past, he’s improved leaps and bound since joining Mike Appleby. Only a few of is rivals rake the eye , but at the odds, King Oswald , who goes well here is preferred to the consistent track regular elixsoft.
1/2pt ew King Oswald @ 20/1
6.30 The top Southern stable of Roger Varian sends kingdom of Dubai on the 500 mile round trip , and his record here is Ok, but makes little appeal at evens. Desai refused to race first time here, but ran far better last time , and looks a very nice longshot.
1/4pt ew desai @ 14/1
7.00 The massively in form Outrage has 4 wins here, but this longer trip is not his best.Equitation ran really well here last time and the extra furlong certainly in his favour and will be hard to beat.
3/4pt Win Equitation @ 3/1
