Cash N Carrie 2,25 @ 10/1
Catapult 3.00 @ 5/1
No advice from Sedgefield or Thurles
Selected Huntingdon- good ground on this flat and galloping track.
2.15 PREMIUM RACE
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.00 You can make a case for all four, but the one to beat is double seeking clondaw castle, who will be hard to peg back from the front, but only even money.
4.35 This has a most winnable look to it with drying ground not on the favour of either Air De Rock or General bux, and both have been shoved up the weights .The capable Vocaliser has dropped to a good mark and shaped well last time in the Sandown mud at this trip. He should e fine staying this far today on the ground and easy track and can get back to winning ways.
1/4pt win Vocaliser @ 5/1
No Hunt placepot
Selected Southwell- all weather- fibresand
2.25 Plenty of C&D regulars here but both Bee Machine and break the silence have wide draws, as does in form veteran Baron Run, who will probably endeavour to make all, but a return to the Winner’s Circle , after a 5 year absence , is unlikely up in trip . Mike Appleby is by far the top trainer here and saddles the well handicapped Cash N carrie , who could be a different proposition on this surface .
1/2pt Win Cash N Carrie @ 10/1
3.00 Plenty here have good recent form at the track, but all of Bond angel, Alpha Tauri and sooqaan drop in trip while Newstead abbey could struggle up in trip and the weights . Catapult did wel here when 3rd to bond angel and has done well down in trip since running two big races on polytrack. His maek looks manageable and could go all the way. He has joined a stronger stable since his last run.
1/2pt win Catapult @ 5/1
4.10 Both Angel Palanas and Black Salt go well over C&D , but both now on testing marks. Crosse Fire is a regular here and is rarely far away and is likely to run his race and hit the frame at least.
1/4pt ew Crosse fire @ 13/2
4.45 Epitaph bounced back to form last time, but in a Wolver claimer , and despite being effective here, I’d rather look elsewhere. Love Rat has done well here since being stepped up to this trip and has claims despite the higher grade, but I’m with high command, who should have done better last time over C&d on his first start for Mike Appleby, but it was a much hotter race than this.
1/4pt win High Command @ 4/1
5.20 Gorgeous General went 13 races without return but has won 3 of his last 4 , two of them here. He has no penalty for his latest win, which came at a longer trip, but he’s even better at the minimum. Will be very hard to beat.
3/4pt Win Gorgeous general @ 5/4
Back with night racing later
Selected Meydan- all – weather- dirt, turf good ground. The track is flat, sweeping and galloping
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.05 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 connect and muzdawaj are the odd ones out as all the others race in the silks of Godolphin. The short priced fav is first nation who landed a handicap last time very well but only off a mark of 101, and others have achieved more. Racing history has been running well in stronger company and this could be his day.
1/2pt Win Racing history @7/2
4.15 The UAE Oaks , and hard to fancy many. Silva landed the 1000 Guineas here recently by 10 Lengths !! at 33/1, but there was no fluke about the win and had almost all of today’s field trailing in her wake. She has a longer trip today , which should not be an issue and has a widish draw, but she looked so good last time, a nice bet at fair odds.
1/2pt win Silva @ 5/2
4.50 A group 2 and a short priced fav in the reliable and tough Century dream, but this C&D on good ground may be an insufficient test. I prefer the Godolphin runner in Wootton, who was not disgraced in Grade 1’s last year and can continue the godolphin Gravy train here.
1/2pt win Wootton @7/2
5.25 Not many make much appeal and all of Above N Boasrd, Eshtiraak, Cliffs Of Capri and Bedouin’Story has good recent form over C&d, and are closely matched, but as there is no front runner in the field, it could just be who is the right place at the right time, and at long odds the tip has to be the play.
1/4pt ew Eshtiraak @ 14/1
Selected Wolver- all weather- tapeta
6.10 Doctor Sardonicus won with authority over C&d last time and is well drawn to make light of the penalty for another all the way win.
3/4pt Win doctor Sardonicus @ 2/1
6.40 Quite a competitive Class 3 sprint for 3yos , and plenty of these are not the finished article , but going on what we know, the consistent Uncle Jerry is holding his form well , remains on a fair mark , and goes well here. Nice ew bet.
1/4pt ew uncle Jerry @ 15/2
7.40 it’s been a while since any of these struck but the front running Gabrial The tiger hasn’t been going badly over C&D of late and off a good mark, could be hard to catch.
1/4pt Win Gabrial The Tiger @ 7/2
8.10 plumette ran well on debut but preference is for Paddys pursuit who was only beaten a length over C&D last time when trying to make all , and from a far better draw, could take some catching.
1/2pt Win Paddys pursuit @ 13/2
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather- polytrack
5.50 No shortage of early pace with Entertaining Ben sure to go on and pushed early by the consistent point zero, who has a bit to prove on this surface , and the down in trip big Time Maybe. It’s hard to fancy Hurricane alert and Red Stripes has been penalised for a rare win last time, which leaves us with a couple of late players in dandelion and Time To Reason, but the former gets the nod off a workable mark.
1/2pt Win dandelion @ 9/2 1/4p rec fc dandelion- time To reason
6.25 The lightly raced always A drama scooted in last time at Kempton and could still be ahead of the game, but 5/4 too short for me. Both Lalania and Dreamboat Annie have the form to run well, but consistency is neither’s strong point. War No More is interesting on his first run for Roger Varian.
6.55 executive force has really taken off of late and landed the hat-trick, with plenty to spare over C&D and looks well capable of overcoming the 6 pound hit, the in form Central City could struggle in this grade while hat-trick seeking Forbidden Planet was all out last time when landing just an Ok contest.
¾ pt win executive Force @ 7/4
7.25 Plenty of unexposed types in this but the handicapper has taken few chances with all of Harvey Dent, red bond, or Albert finney. Wall of sapphire hasn’t been going badly of late and shapes like the longer trip will suit.
1//2pr Win wall of Sapphire @ 10/1
