Selected Kempton- good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.15 PREMIUM RACE
1.50 Bags groove was a strong fancy for a grade 1 here last time, but nothing went eight and he is best judged on his previous runs when front running at this trip and ground. All of his 3 rivals are capable sorts, but I can see him being away and gone today.
3/4pts Win Bags Groove @ 2/1
3.00 Angels breath is 2 from 2 and is expected to take this en route to Cheltenham, but on what we now, today’s ground and track could test his speed. southfield stone consistently runs to a good level and will be suited to the C&D and ground. Really good ew bet.
1/2pt ew Southfield stone @ 8/1
3.35 This is most wide open and the acid rest for massive improver glen Rocco who won by a over C&D last time, but does have a 13 pound penalty in a deeper race. Adrien Du Port was a smart winner over C&D last time and could be up the penalty. He consistent if luckless Talkischeap has clear claims but at the odds I have to have a play on RomanDe senam, who won well last time off around this reduced mark and is 1 from 1 at around this trip. Should relish this speed track.
1/2pt ew Romain De Senam @ 20/1
4.10 It’s easier to find more negatives than positives with most of these so well worth a play on the well handicapped Un Beau roman, who did well to be 2nd over this C&d last time and Paddy Brennan keeps the ride.
½ pt ew un Beau roman @ 9/1
Selected Lingfield – all weather- polytrack
1.30 PREMIUM RACE
2.05 PREMIUM RACE
2.35 This looks a toss up between a apair of most improved types in Fearsome and Cosmopolitan , but the latter’s form looks a touch stronger. This could get worryingly tactical with no recognised front runner.
1/2pt Win cosmopolitan @ 2/1
3.15 Wissahickon has developed into a very serious racehorse and hard to see this 1/4 shot being troubled.
3.50 Chevalier is effective over C&d and could just get the run of the race from the front and looks a nice bet at the odds.
1/2pt Win Chevalier @ 7/1
Selected Newcastle – good to soft on this stiff and galloping track
2.40 The 4 mile Eider Chase and last year’s winner Baywing goes for the double, but drying ground not in his favour. You can make a case for most of these but the pair that take my eye are the inform pair of kimberlite Candy and crosspark , who both have stamina to prove, but both shape like it’ll will suit.
¼ pt ew Crosspark @ 14/1 ¼ pt win kimberlite Candy @ 15/2 , why not , a small rev fc
3.55 This has a winnable look to it and I’m chancing the front running Aristo De Plessis, who remains on a fair mark and trusted on this stiff track.
1/4pt Win Aristo De Plessis @ 7/1
4.30 another tricky contest but I’m trying the in form Ascot de Bruyere , who drops in trip but does run this track well and could try and make all.
1/4pt Win ascot De brevere @ 11/2
Selected Chepstow- good ground on this undulating and stiff track
1.55 PREMIUM RACE
2.30 this looks good for Dickie Diver after the horse which beat him over C&D has gone on win in higher grade, but is 1/2.
3.40 Sambaru Shujaa was looking the type who was easy to take on with a series of placed efforts, but it all came right over this C&D last time and on a fair mark the double looks well and truly on.
3/4pt Win Sambaru Shujaa @ 2/1
4.50 Not a deep contest and the reliable Kavanagh’s Corner has strong claims.
1/2pt Win Kavanagh;s Cross @ 11/4
Selected Wolver- all weather- tapeta
5.30 Not a race for a big punt as most are hard to win back. The likeable veteran Indian affair won over C&d last time and only has a small penalty, but has been unlucky in the draw. tiger lyon is interesting down in the weights on his debut for a capable stable but the nod goes to the once useful Steelriver, who comes here on the back if 3 good placed efforts , and well drawn for his strong finish .
1/4pt Win steelriver @ 7/2
6.00 The likeable veteran Monumental Man has gone close a number of times in handicaps over C&D of late and dropping into a seller, looks good for an easy all the way win.
3/4pt win Monumental Man @ 13/8
7.00 the hat-trick seeking alkamel is 1/2 to go in again, but does have an 11 pound penalty, so at the odds prefer the other hat-trick seeker in spirit Warning.
1/4pt Win spirit Warning @ 9/2
7.30 not a deep contest and the consistent and well drawn oneofden deserves a win and is chanced first time on tapeta.
¼ pt Win oneofden @ 3/1
8.00 very little between almost all of these at the weights but preference is for the conistent dodgy Bob, effective over C&d and well drawn.
1/4pt ew dodgy Bob @ 7/1
