Selected newbury- good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.30 despite being better known as a chaser, the capable Private Malone goes well here and has the ground in his favour. This is a most winnable race and worth chancing returning from break as he’s gone well fresh before.
1/4pt Ew Private Malone @ 18/1
2.05 A veterans race and the fav is the ex Irish Aboitionist who sluiced in on his first start for the good Doctor Richard Newland. That win came at Aintree over hurdles, and off a much lower mark than today, but he was far too good for a decent field, Interesting that he stable hasn’t run him since as they are in the habit of racing in form runners frequently , but looking at his profile, is sparingly raced nowadays, and his mark is tough enough judged on Irish exploits. Carole’s desstriee won well over C&d three starts back and backed that up with an excellent effort in a warwick marathon when 4th and the 3rd horse won last week’s Eider.He was pulled up last time, but was badly hampered early on and worth forgiving.
1/4pt ew Carole’s Destrier @ 11/2
2.40 PREMIUM RACE
3.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.15 The pair favoured at the weights are the consistent Untsman’s Son and the disappointing Slate House , but I’m with the form horse Molyneux , and the drop in trip a positive.
1/2pt Win Molyneux @ 9/4
Selected Lingfield- all weather- polytrack
1.35 A weak opener and n surprise if the ex – French Kings Adive is too good for these on his first start for Mark Johnston, but 6/4 no appeal
2.10 The wonderful veteran Roys Legscy bounced back to form with a terrific all the way effort at Chelmsford , only finding one too good. He stays on this career low mark and has the plot draw to go all the way, but a bit short at 11/4 and I’m playing another in form veteran in , Pharoh Jake as the strong pace will suit his strong finish .
1/4pt ew Pharoh Jake @ 8/1
2.50 There were global sweats on Corinthia knight last Saturday for Premium Tip Members as he was the last of 4 tips, and the others all won at 11/2, 3/1 and 7/2. He rana fair race to be 3rd, but was still below his best and was some way behind Royal Birth , and worse off at the weights. This looks a good opportunity for Royal birth, but you wont get rich.
1/2pt Win Royal Birth @ 13/8
3.20 Chevalier disappointed again last week and he’s had plenty of chances. Sha La La La lee ran well on his recent comeback race , but a bit to prove on this surface . Family Fortunes comes into this with 2 wins and 4 seconds, all on the all weather, but the 4 pound hit makes insurgence of more interest.
1/4pt Win Insurgent @ 9/4
3.50 These are closely matched at the weights but nothing us proven either at the trip and surface. Deep intrigue has won 4 of his last 5 and has a track win on his Cv and worth risking over the extra furlong. Fanar is a short priced fav but I would rather just watch first time on synthetics and could have been flattered in his last race of last season.
1/2pt Win deep Intrigue @ 11/4
4.25 Will this finally e Antonia Clare’s big day after 11 tries. I think it will with main rival Swiss pride returning from a break.
1/4pt Win Antonia clare @ 6/4
Selected kelso- good ground on this undulating and sharp track
2.45 At the weights the useful and tenacious Black Corton will take beating, and the top stable brings him on the 750 mile round trip, hoping to enhance their useful 39% success rate here. This is a specialist track and all of his rivals have course winning for. , and the 2017 Grand National hero One For Arthur is the only with a chance at the Weights, but both of his comeback runs this season have resulted in unseats, and was not in contention either time. Captain Redbeard caused a right old shock over C&D last time in a match beating the useful Definitely Red on most unfavourable terms, but looks the best of the rest.
1/4pt ew Captain Redbeard @ 5/1
3.15 Getaway trump is the odds on fav in this grade 2 hurdle, but wouldn’t be piling in with a number of these having a decent shout.
3.55 take your pick between Knockrobin and western rules, I can’t split them
4.30 Orioninverness has run well in all starts this year and this represents a terrific opportunity for an overdue and deserved win.
3/4pt Win Orioninverness @ 5/4
Selected Doncaster – good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.50 Bordeaux Bill got back on the scoresheet last time and in a winnable race will carry my money despite a nude up in the weights and a slightly longer trip . His rivals don’t come into this in great form.
1/4pt Win Bordeaux Bill @ 3/1
2.25 Cracking Find is a chaser on the up coming here on a hat-trick after front running displays at Wetherby and last time this C&D. The 5 pound hit will test, but as he’s likely to get his own way up front, could take some catching.
1/2pt win cracking Find @ 9/4
3.00 Bonza girl is a perfect 5 from 5 this[i] season and no issue with the trip or the ground, which is more than can be said for both the useful pair of Danse idol and Papagena, so despite having 5 pounds to find , I’m with this tough sort to grind out another win.
1/2pt Win Bonza Girl @ 5/1
3.35 plenty of in form types and I’m with one of them in looking well who did well to win here last time down in trip and this out and out stayer will relish today’s extra yardage.
1/4pt Win Looking Well @ 9/2
4.40 The drying ground is no help for either Empire de Maulde or Crig Sun which offers a terrific opportunity for the in form Zig Zag, who remains on a workable mark and will like the ground and C&D. Could possibly lead this all the way.
3/4pt Win Zig Zag @ 5/2
Selected Chelmsford City- all weather – polytrack
6.00 White Coat has gone close a few times of late and should land this big field but modest maiden, but not for me at odds on.
6.30 A bigger ask for both of Amtie Waltz and temur khan who have to show effectiveness away from Southwell. Stamford Raffles was a shock winner in a good event at Kempton , when he was in the right place at the right time for the sprint for home. It looks most unreliable form but the handicapper took it literally and bunged him up 8 pounds, giving him a very stiff task tonight. The in form west Coast Flyer has the best form at this trip and surface and remains on a workable mark.
¾ pt win West Coast flyer @ 9/4
7.00 PREMIUM RACE
7.30 PREMIUM RACE
8.00 The in form pair of Splash of Verve and Arlechinnos Arc are unlikely to appreciate the drop in trip, and with so many in this hard to fancy for various reasons, worth a play on the back to form veteran Outlaw torn, who has responded finally to the handicapper’s generosity with a much improved effort last time and that makes this tough sort a most lively longshot.
1/4pt ew Outlaw Torn @ 16/1
8.30 Blyton Lass has been knocking on the door of late and it could well open tonight . She’s entitle to get the beating of old rival at the weights and the rest are hard to fancy, especially the down in trip Dolphin Village.
1/2pt Win Blyton lass @ 3/1
