Selected Musselburgh- good ground on this flat and galloping track
1,35 you’d expect Constantino to double up, but 4/6 no use to me.
2.10 Samtu has bright claims in this modest field for doubling up on a recent C&D victory, but looking at his win record, 5/4 is short enough.
2.45 With both Monsieur co and john Williams racing on testing marks, Boys on Tour tested dropping in trip and Contre Tous out of sorts, like most of his stable, certainly worth a play on thr likeable and capable front running civil Unrest, who could have been feeling the effects of a hectic programme when below par last time, but goes well fresh and a mot lively longshot.
1/2pt Win civil unrest @10/1
3.20 Ballyanty was a ready winner over C&D last time and despite the 7 pound hit the double looks on against unconvincing rivals, but 5/4 a bit skinny for a single.
Selected Ludlow- good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.50 The useful Snapdragon Fire has a double penalty but should reward odds on backers with ease.
2.24 the in form Kupatana is certainly the one to beat and could possibly improve for the move to the Paul Nicholls stable. Her form is much stronger than chief rival Kayf Blanco.
1/2pt Win Kupatana @ 11/8
3.00 Progressive youngster Earlofthecotswolds has a hefty penalty for a recent win and I prefer a play on one of the longshots in Voodoo Doll, who showed last time that he’s not weighted out of this.
1/4pt ew Voodoo doll @ 11/1
3.35 uhlan bute comes into this in cracking form and his latest run was a most solid 2nd over C&d on similar ground and mark. The problem is that he likes to front run and so does More Bucks , so not an ideal race make up. Small play only.
1/4pt win Uhlan Bute @ 9/4
Selected Taunton- good ground on this flat and sharp track
2.35 Airton won really well on his hurdles debut and with the longer trip expected to suit, looks another solid fav.
1/2pt win Airton @ 7/4
3.10 PREMIUM RACE
3.45 Hurricane Dylan is a most likeable chase , and will take some beating in this modest field, despite the big penalty.
1/4pt Win Hurricane Dylan @ 2/1
4.20 I was impressed by the ex- French Red mix last time and the longer trip is a smart move and very ice odds considering his claims
1/2pt win Red Mix @ 5/1
Selected Meydan- turf good ground, all weather- dirt
The track is sweeping, flat and galloping- an excellent circuit
3.05 Golden Jaguar is 2 from 2 and really impressed winning on turf here from the worst of the draw . Longer trip should not be an issue and could be ahead of the game.
1/4pt Win Golden Jaguar @ 2/1
3.40 PREMIUM RACE
4.15 A group 3 for stayers and the odds on fav is the ex French Bruntland, who is entitled to win this well at the ratings and is the Number 1 of the 4 Godolphin runners in this, but the progressive ispolini is race fit and was impressive winning over C&D.
1/4pt ew ispolini @ 4/1
5.25 As has been the case of the majority if races here of late, Godolphin has a strong hand in this and the short priced fav is their On The warpath, but the drop in trip has to be a concern , in fact many could struggle for pace down in distance so despite he wide draw, the in form dream Today could be even better over this extra yardage.
1/4pt ew dream Today @ 10/1
6.00 Plenty of Godolphin runners again and I’m siding with their desert Fire who was a good 2nd here last time , which is the best form in the race at this trip..
3/4pt win Desert Fire @ 4/1
Meydan Placepot 2-30 – 5.25
Selected Newcastle- all weather- tapeta- the track is stiff and galloping
4.05 Loud and Clear is very much a most effective regular here and encouragingly runs his race whatever is chucked at him and his latest effort when foiled by a head off just a pound lower, underlines he is not ready for a break just yet. Very solid fav.
3/4pt Win Loud and Clear @ 5/4
4.40 The bookies make this a match between Almost midnight who looked good winning ion debut, but that was on polytrack and a longer trip, up against Forest of Eden who goes up in trip and on breeding and the way he’s been finishing his race, doesn’t look sure to stay this stiff C&D. I’m chancing mark Johnston’s Truckingby who did better last time giving the impression this much stiffer test of stamina will suit. Lively longshot
1/4pt ew Truckingsby @ 33/1
5.10 Full marks to Dommersen of late and e failed nailed a deserved win last time, and this is not a deep contest. He’s only 3 pounds higher but was held on much lower marks than this over C&D earlier, and in one of those races he had rockwood behind, but with the weight pull, chance of a surprise win.
1/4pt ew Rockwood @ 11/1
5.45 Toy Theatre was a shock winner at Kempton last time and It would come just as big a shock to me if she managed to double up with a penalty and going up to a trip unlikely to help. Mama Africa has been going well of late at her beloved southwell, but does have form here, and she is now racing on a dangerously low mark . There’s every chance she will get the run of the race from the front and could take a bit of catching.
1/2pt Win Mama Africa @ 11/2
6.15 Both Portledge and atholblair boy are in form regulars here but while the latter ran well at this trip last year, has a bit to prove back up in distance first time for a while .Deansgate is another who is effective over C&D and will have come on for his recent comeback race and merits a nice ew play.
1/4pt ew Deansgate @ 6/1
6.45 Fendale looked good returning from a break to win over C&D recently , and on that form , the 3 pound hit shouldn’t stop him.
1/2pt Win Fendale @ 5/2
Selected Kempton – all weather- polytrack
4.50 Not a deep contest and a great chance for the well drawn Mans not trot to make all with conditions to suit.
3/4pt Win mans not trot @ 2/1
5.20 PREMIUM RACE
5.55 Cashel certainly has the bit between his teeth and comes here on a hat-trick. The way he won last time you would think he could cope with the 6 pound rise, but the wide draw is no help. Of the longshots, the one that makes most appeal is the capable Spiritual Star, who has showed a bit of late and capable of springing a shock.
1/4pt ew Spiritual Star @ 18/1
6.30 Hard to be excited by anything that’s already run so a small play on the well bred newcomer Physics, who was a costly purchase.
1/4pts win Physics @ 4/1
7.00 PREMIUM RACE
7.30 Quite a few last time winners but stiffer tasks up in the ratings and grade. I’m trying the ex- Irish escapability who could thrive with the move to the good stable of alan King .
1/4pt Win Escapability @ 9/2
8.00 The lightly raced Blazon goes for the hat-trick and could well do it, but a chance has to be given to all of queen of Paris, Thesholdofadream and Tin fandango, and I’m with the latter who ran a good race over C&D last time when trying to make all and kept on bravely.
1/4pt Ew Tin Fandango @ 11/1
8.30 Unblinking has improved massively over hurdles of late, but still a bit to prove on the flat, despite being a C&D winner. He’s had a nice break, so could be fresher than most.
1/4pt Win Unblinking @ 9/2
