Selected Newcastle- good to soft on this stiff and galloping track
2.00 I’ve backed Keep The River a few times of late and should have done much better last time, but easy to forgive one poor run, so this winnable event could go his way . Rivals nor awesome.
1/2pt Win Keep The River @ 8/1
2.30 Full marks to hat-trick seeking Ascot de Bruyere, whose two wins came here, both times from the front, but would do well to go in again under a massive 13 pound penalty and a case can be made for all of his rivals petitville is on a decent mark and hasn’t been going badly of late. This track should suit and the stable have made a 500 mile round trip with just the one runner.
1/4pt Win Petitville @ 6/1
3.05 Before this season Christmas in the USa was 0 from 26 , but has won both of his starts this year . He sluiced home at Ayr and did well to win at Carlisle last time when taken on by many in the early stages, but rallied and would not be denied. Strangely, long standing maidens improve a chunk once getting their heads in front and become reformed characters. He has a better race make up today with nothing else likely to want to go on and can overcome the 6 pound penalty in a modest event .
3/4pts win Christmas in USA @ 11/2
3.35 Hard to fancy anything strongly in this , but happy tp play Outnumbered , down to a very good mark and has run well over C&D on similar ground off higher marks.
1/4pt ew Outnumbered @ 12/1
Selected Warwick- good ground on this flat and sharp track
2.10 Juge et Parti has a bit to prove after a poor run last time. Financial outcome has the best recent form and should be fine on the ground and C&d. Checkitout ran well at Chepstow last time but gives the impression this will be sharp a test.
1.4pt Win Financial Outcome @ 9/4
2.40 Boughtbeforelunch has been going well in higher grade and crucially has good track form on the ground. He goes up in trip, but in a race where quantity outweighs quality, worth a dabble.
1/4pt Win Boughtbeforelunch @ 5/1
3.15 generous Day is 1 from 1 over C&d, beating a couple of recent yardsticks, and whilst he couldn’t follow up next time at Wetherby, is worth forgiving back at his best C&D in a winnable race,
1/2pt Win Generous Day @ 5/2
3.45 Drying ground is not in the favour of either King of Realms and Coup De Pinceau so happy to play the consistent , who won well two starts back off just a 2 pound lower mark. And has the ground and trip in her favour.
1/2pt win Molly Childers @ 5/1
Selected Wolver- all weather- tapeta
2.20 Cheap Jack has good enough form on the surface and is well drawn for the potential front runner. There are a number of dark horses in this but still looks a nice ew play.
1/4pt ew Cheap Jack @ 8/1
2.50 Caplin returned from a break to make all over C&D from Paradise boy, who was held up first time at this trip, but finished full of running to be just over a length behind at the line , and off 3 pound better terms . looks a nice bet to get revenge. All of the others have a bit to prove at this trip.
1/2pt Win Paradise Boy @ 5/1
3.25 Not a deep race and every chance that American endeavour can double up, bit Bell Heather is 5 pounds better off for just being 3=2c lengths behind, so this C&d winner has to be a lively longshot despite not having won for over a year.
1/4pt ew Bell Heather @ 20/1
3.55 PREMIUM RACE
5.05 PREMIUM RACE
Chelmsford City – all weather- polytrack
5.30 The reliable Amor Fati won really well over C&D last time but doubts regarding the double under a hefty penalty and from a bad draw. the lightly raced Compass point is another last time C&d winner, but another with a hefty penalty. The lightly raced My Town Chicago ran well from the front when 3rd at Kempton and another good run is likely from a good draw. kilbaha Lady is never far away and that should be the case tonight but the nod goes to the consistent and well treated Blessed to Empress, even if stamina not certain.
1/4pt ew Blessed To empress @ 20/1
6.30 PREMIUM RACE
7.00 A short priced fav in Rux Power , who brings the best form to the table , but an 8 months break is not ideal and also new to the surface. White Coat has the best polytrrack form, but is looking hard to win with and has a shocker of a draw. Creek Island runs for a top stable and this eell drawn runner tan well on debut and could be the surprise packet here.
1/4pt ew Creek Island @ 14/1
7.30 The very wonderful SDS is back and the Champion jockey has a good chance of a winner with the consistent Rose Berry, whose win record is not what it should be, as she has little room for error off her mark and her consistency makes the handicapper reluctant to ease her, but very slid claims in a winnable heat.
1/4pt Win Rose Berry @ 7/2
8.00 PREMIUM RACE
8.30 A low quality sprint with a short priced fav in the in form Ascot dreamer, but from a wide draw and also switching to a quicker surface , prefer the chance of the well drawn Ever Rock , who has showed enough to notch a first ever win.
1/4pt win Ever Rock @ 6/1
