New Millenium 3.45 @ 5/2
Selected Lingfield – all weather- polytrack
2.00 He’s a little high in the weights and not well drawn, but the in form In The Red still looks the likely front runner and hard to see him being reeled in by any of these.
3/4pt Win In The Red @ 9/4

3.05 There’s a stack of early pave with the in form yet badly handicapped Warriors valley sure to try and make all, as will both the flying Just That Lord. Both of these are on tough marks now and are poorly draw, and of course having to dispute at a strong pace is no use to either. Drakefell bounced back to form last time, but only in a claimer and he too will be wanting a piece of the early action. This is very much set up for a finisher , but the prime candidate Something Lucky has the worst of the draw. He was a close 2nd over C&D recently , just foiled by Its All a joke , who did well to win off the strong pace, and from a nice draw, a lively longshot .
1/4pt ew It’s All A joke @ 12/1
3.35 the short priced fav is El Ghazwani, but with him returning from a lengthy break on a testing mark, much prefer to look elsewhere. Winged Spur put in a career best run when winning at Redcar at the end of last flat season, and there was plenty to like about her 2nd run back from a break at Wolver. She’s been very easy in the market today, but as the stable does so well here, has to be a good player at relatively massive odds.
1/2pt win Winged Spur @ 12/1

4.40 I expected the well bred and expensive Follow A dream to be odds on in this modest maiden, so has to be played at very fair odds.
½ pt win Follow a dream @ 6/4
Selected Fontwell- good ground on this sharp track
2.10 Many here are dropping in trip which is not ideal on this sharp track . the lightly raced Celtic joy is actually going up in trip, which looks a smart move after a reasonable effort at Huntingdon last time in a decent heat.
1/4pt Win Celtic Joy @ 5/1
2.40 The Ogle gogle Man is having a good season and has no issues with the C&D or the better ground. All of his rivals have question marks against them in terms of trip and ground, and good chance of another win.
3/4pt Win The Ogle Gogle Man @ 3/1
3.45 The front running New Millenium will take some catching on the better ground and has made all to victory over C&d before.
1/2pt Win New millennium @ 5/2
Selected Wetherby- good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.20 Looks very much a match , but as he’s proven over C&d and the ground, give the nod to Constancio over Denmead .
½ pt win Constancio @ 9/4
2.50 Hard to get enthused abut many of these, but the down in grade Oliver’s Gold has rum some of his best races here on the ground and worth an interest.
1/4pt win Oliver’s Gold @ 11/2
3.25 Youngster Falcon Sun was still going well untll taking a late fall in a far better race at Newbury , and the form has been boosted since. This in not a big ask .
¾ pt winFalcon sun @ 11/4
3.55 Flowery took like a duck to water first time over fences at Sedgefield, but a big penalty, quicker ground and a longer trip all pose questions. Lough Salt is very consistent and runs this C&d well on the ground, It’s been a while since he last won, but thus could be his day.
1/2pt ew Lough salt @ 6/1
4.30 Irish raider Thesedaysaregone sluiced in over C&d a few runs ago, and despite the much higher mark , has strong claims again. Golden Jeffrey has won his last two and this front runner showed terrific battling qualities to win last time, and should be suited to this C&d. Nice ew bet considering few can be considered in this.
1/4pt ew golden Jeffrey @ 12/1
Selected Dundalk- al weather- polytrack
6.15 Ar Soaise remains a maiden after 22 tries, but it’s not for the want of trying and comes here on the back of an excellent effort over C&d when dead heating for 2nd with Haqeeba , but is far better drawn today and has the services of a capable 3 pound claimer who knows him well, but at the odds, his rival has to be the bet despite the wide draw.
1/2pt Ew Haqeeba @ 11/2
6.45 A stack of in form runners, many of which are winners over this C&D. my preference is for Chapperel Dream, who after landing a double here, ran really well off his new testing mark , and that just gives him the edge at the weights today.
1/4pt win Chapperel dream @ 4/1
7.15 I wont be having a play in this big field maiden but feel I have to draw your attention top the significant market support for Godolphin’s Balefire, who showed plenty in a Leopardstown maiden , and is now just a 6/5 shot. Not for me, but if you like this sort, step in.
Selected Newcastle- all weather- tapeta. The track is stiff and galloping
5.55 Plenty here with decent form over C&d, but the stand out piece of form is Champagne Ruke’s excellent 2nd last time in a far deeper race than this and had a number of decent types behind. Bit worried about the two months break, but if ready to go, a nice bet.
½ pt Win Champagne Rules @ 5/1

7.00 Plenty of confidence behind newcomer Robotique Danseur, a £120,000 purchase for a stable that does well here.
