Selected Kempton- all weather- polytrack
2.00 Puds has done little wrong of late and is potent over this C&d. I’d be more confident if this front runner had a more positive jockey booking
¼ pt ew Puds @ 13/2
2.35 The three to concentrate on here are the trio of last time winners, but Rainbow Heart’s sire has never had a winner here while Nausha’s smart win came on soft turf. Rux Power is a well bred and costly filly, who could well make all under SDS.
½ pt win Rux power @ 5/1
3.10An interesting Class 2 event as most of these are unexposed and have potential to do well this season,Odds on fav in Senza limiti who sluiced in on his only race last year, but it was at Salisbury on fast turf, so a very different test I like the odds about the hat-trick seeking Riviera Knight who could make all under Ryan Moore.
½ pt win Riviera knight @ 11/1
3.45 PREMIUM RACE
4.50 What an incredible horse What A Welcome is, winning 8 of his last 9 handicaps, He’s effective on this surface and stats the trip . He’s up a further 5 pounds , but just hates to lose
½ pt win What A Welcome @13/2
Selected Haydock- good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.30 PREMIUM RACE
2.05 Chances can be given to many but the pair which stick out on mark, track , trip and ground are :the likeable topweight Red Tornado, a most tenacious and capable sort who bounces off quick turf and ran well recently on his firs run for a new stable. I’m spilt between hm and Chieftain’s Choice, who has recently returned from a break with two fairly tame runs , but this confirmed front runner has been ridden patiently , as if they are waiting for the right moment.
¼ pt ew each Red Tornado @ 12/1 Chieftain’s Choice @ 16/1 – why not , a small rev fc
2.40 the majority of these are better served by softer ground or stiffer tracks and there are also a few front runners. Mahlermade is rarely far away, but just can’t nail one. He is best suited to this C&d and ground than the others.
½ pt ew Mahlermade @ 8/1
3.15 Faithful mount has run well in his last two starts and will be suited to the track and ground. Doesn’t find much late on, but with most here happier on softer ground, another nice ew bet
1/2pt ew Faithful Mount @ 9/1
4.20 Another race with plenty of early pace which will suit the late player and in form Vivas, another who will be suited to ground and C&D.
½ pt ew Vivas @ 11/1
4.55 The once useful Ziga Boy has been pulled up in both runs this year, returning from a log break , but the top stable are persisting with him and on his best ground and ideal C&D, if back to his old form, would slaughter these.
¼ pt win Ziga Boy @ 9/2
Selected Newton abbot- good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.35 Monsieur D’Arque is the worthy odds on fav, but like all the market leaders, has a rare try around a sharp right handed track. Powerful Society is going really well of late and looks a cracking ew bet at the odds.
½ pt ew Powerful Society @ 14/1
2.10 This will take little winning and the consistent if luckless Ballybough Noora could open her account as she’s likely to relish the extra yardage.
½ pt win Ballybough Noora @ 3/1
2.45 In an unappealing contest, Polished Rock looks overpriced as he prefers the quick ground a lot more than his rivals.
¼ pt win Polished Rock @ 11/1
3.55 a tough little handicap but the well hadicapped Cut The Corner has good form here on the ground.
¼ pt win Cut The Corner @ 7/1
4.25Another event where most are better suited by softer ground, Iniesta has been going well over hurdles at this trip and ground and is chanced first time over fences, and these are soft fences.
¼ pt ew Iniesta @ 11/1
Newton Abbot placepot
Selected Carlisle – good ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
A special Hello to my mate Kenny and his coachload of mates. Carlisle wont be making that mistake again, letting you lot in !!
1.40 Not a great opener and a decent opportunity for the consistent Green Zone, who’ll like the ground and has run well here.
2.15 Practically a match between a pair of likeable types, but just prefer wishful Dreamin over peppay La pugh over this stiff C&D
2.50 On the quick ground, Irish raider Staged Engagement could shock shorter priced rivals.
¼ pt win Stage Engagement @ 8/1
4.35 Another uninspiring contest and despite the drop in trip the in form Petite Ganach is taken to win over fences first time of asking.
Selected Musselburgh- good to firm on this flat and quick track.
1.50 Port Swain did well winning over C&D recently just getting the better of Three Saints Bay, Hayadh and the front running Rasealad, who may well not have his own way up front with the down in grade Lake Volta likely to get busy early. At the weights slight preference for Three saints Bay.
¼ pt ew Three Saints Bay @ 8/1
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
3.35 PREMIUM RACE
4.05 Over this C&d just prefer Ventura Gold to double up in a winnable race.
¼ pt win Ventura Gold @ 11/4
5.15 Lord of the Glen has dropped to a good mark and ran satisfactorily over C&D last time off a higher mark.
¼ pt ew lord of The glen @ 10/1
5.45 Gowanbuster is sure to blast out and after a good win last time on the Newcastle tapeta, he is still well weighted and handles quick turf
¼ pt win Gowanbuster @ 11/2
Night Racing – Fortune for a fiver
6 50p doubles, 4 25p trebles & 50p ew acca
Cobweb catcher 5.35 @ 2/1
Blessed to Empress 6.20 @ 5/1
Contingency Fee 7.20 @ 15/8
Lunar Deity 7.50 @ 3/1
Selected Nottingham- good to firm on this flat and quick track
4.30 Gamesome was well punted last time but did his usual, off the pace for a placed effort and with a win record of 1 in 47, that coming 6 years ago, is never one at shortish odds. You’re Cool comes here in good form from the all weather, on which he is rated much higher. He’s no slouch on turf and worth a dabble in a winnable race/
¼ pt win You’re Cool @5/1
5.05 Champagne Supernove has good experience on his side and just about worth a play despite 3 good stables having newcomers in this event.
¼ pt win Champagne Supanova @ 4/1
5.35 There was money for Cobweb Catcher on his comeback spin at Windsor and ran a good 2nd, which is well good enough to be taking this modest sprint.
½ win Cobweb Catcher @ 2/1
6.05 Mr tyrell narrowly prevailed last time for an overdue win and despite the 3 pound hit, this looks no harder and can double up.
¼ pt win Mr Tyrell @ 4/1
7.35 Far more quantity than quality in this and the in form optima Petamus can finally nail one. He’s placed frequently but this is easier than of late and runs this C&d well.
¼ pt win Optima Petamus @ 3/1
Selected Brighton- good to firm on this undulating, sharp and very tricky track which favours track specialists.
4.45 Real estate has been going well on the all weather of late since being dropped to this trip and as has run well here before on quick turf and off higher marks, looks a nice bet at the odds.
¼ pt win Real estate @ 7/1
5.50 Emily Goldfinch has done really to hold her form now operating off a testing mark, she’s well drawn to adopt her front running and has a win over C&d on quick turf. She hasn’t been far away of late and a deserved win can be hers.
½ pt win Emily Goldfinch @ 5/1
6.20 Most of these are more potent forces on the all weather , and come here in good form, but Blessed to empress is back to a good mark and this likeable filly has a track win on her Cv on good ground, and this longer trip no issue.
1/2pt Win Blessed To Empress @ 5/1
6.50 A bigger ask for The Jean Genie after an easy win at Lingfield on the all weather off a 7 pound higher mark and switching to quick turf . Last enchantment appeals as a lively longshot and has a close 2nd over C&D on quick ground off this mark to his name and came to hand early last season.
½ pt win Last Enchantment @ 12/1
7.20 A weak event and the clear form horse is Contingency who sluiced in at Southwell just a few days ago and despite having a bit of a stiff task at the ratings, he won well here off a 5 pound higher mark last year on quick turf and the 7 pound claimer keeps the ride. Double looks on.
½ pt win Contingency Fee @ 15/8
7.50 Not a strong finale and a good chance for Lunar deity to go 3 wins from last 4, and the switch to quick turf here is no issue.
½ pt win Luna Deity @ 3/1
