Selected Perth- good ground on this flat and quick track
2.05 I’m not with the bookies at all in this as from eden disappointed here yesterday and the drop in trip and switch to fences no real help while Christmas in April has been running poorly and drying ground and shorter trip no help. Boys On tour likes it here with 2 C&d wins and has the ground in his favour, and is also the likely front runner,but he is a bit high in the weights and grade. I’m having a dabble on the longshot Away for Slates, who has refound his form of late and his easy win at Donny on good ground reads well in the context of this race.
¼ pt ew Away for Slates @ 14/1
2.40 The Irish raider Count Simon us very hard to win with and drying ground no help and the same can be said about Whatmore and Secrete Stream. The unexposed Schiellion Munro improved for tacking quicker ground last time and while his opening mark looks a little harsh, could be ahead of the game.
½ pt win Schiellion Munro @ 9/2
3.15 A good quality Class 1 event for mares and the one to beat at the ratings is the massively improved Atlanta Ablaze who after landing a similar event with ease ran a belter in the 4 mile chase at Cheltenham until taking a tired looking fall late on, If she’s over those exertions, and she should be , should outclass these.
¾ pt win Atlanta Ablaze @ 5/2
3.45 PREMIUM RACE
4.15 The Perth National and it’s wide open as few have ever ventured this far before. I’m torn between the in form pair if Gold opera and Achill Road Boy, who both have stamina to prove but shape like stayers . Slight nod for the progressive latter .
¼ pt ew Achill Road Boy @ 6/1
Selected Doncaster – good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.40 Not many come into this with strong claims, and hard to argue with the bookies making Forest of Dean and Felix short in the market, which makes Days of Glory an attractive ew bet after a good win at Windsor at this trip and ground.
¼ pt ew Days Of Glory @ 10/1
2.15 Quite frustrating as a tipster as this big field low grade handicap is there for the taking, but hard to find the one with the edge. The closet I can get is the consistent Rebel State, despite returning from a break. Nice longshot.
¼ pt ew Rebel state @ 18/1
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
3.55 Canford Bay came into latest run I good form on the all weather, but was of little interest judged on previous quick turf runs, but he sluiced in at Ripon landing a competitive event well with Nibras Again just a length behind, and neither have penalties. This is no harder and should double up.
½ pt win Canford Bay @ 5/2
4.25 This has a winnable look to it and chancing the capable October Storm, who had a light rime of it last season, but ran well on each occasion and returns on a good mark and will be fine on the ground and C&D.
¼ pt win October storm @ 11/2
5.00 A finale which is another race with a winnable look as you can find holes in the chances of all the market leaders. Penny Pot Lane is well capable off this mark and on the ground and trip on some of last year’s form. She has become a bit In and out , but nice ew play.
¼ pt ew Penny Pot Lane @ 8/1
Selected Sandown- good to firm on this stiff track
1.50 Fox Leicester had an easy task on his recent comeback race and made no mistake. He was consistent last year running to a level giving him most solid claims in a winnable heat.
½ pt win Fox Leicester @ 7/2
2.25 Crystal Ocean is one of the highest rated horses in training at 125 and ran some excellent races last year. He won this last year , but the ground was on the soft side, so this could be a bit short for him on quick turf, but class should prevail. Interesting for professional backers at a relatively generous 8/11.
3.00 A Group 3 and as most of these are unexposed, not a race to get heavily involved in. Bangkok was mightily impressive on his comeback race and the 2nd horse has paid a handsome compliment to the form but the John Gosden pair could be anything , but fascinating that he trainer runs Travel On , who has a lowly handicap mark, which could have been exploited, but has chosen to aim at this.
¼ pt win Travel On @ 7/1
3.35 A Group 2 and the worthy fav is the highest rated in the field in Beat The Bank , and looks a nice bet at the odds.
½ pt win Beat The Bank @ 11/4
Selected Bangor- good ground on this flat and sharp track
4.40 The drying ground is an issue for most of these but not for the well treated C&d winner Thyne and Gold and a good chance to return to winning ways.
¼ pt wn thyne For gold @ 13/2
5.10 Temperament appears to have crept into Constancio of late and with Pink Legend more potent on easy ground, great . Looks a great opportunity for Lucky lover Boy to land the hat-trick with ground and probably C&d in his favour.
½ pt win Lucky Lover Boy @ 6/5
5.40 The lightly raced Kereman was a good winner at plumpton on similar ground just a few days ago and has no penalty. Double looks very much on , but is 4/6
6.15 You would expect Troubled Soul to have too much for his two rivals, but is 8/11
7.20 A Marathon Chase and many of these have stamina question marks. None so the well treated Mahler Lad , who looks a nice bet at the odds.
½ pt win Mahler Lad @ 9/1
Selected Chepstow- good ground on this undulating, galloping and quite stiff track
4.50 PREMIUM RACE
5.50 Chapmanship landed a Punchestown bumper on good ground impressively and was noted running on well on his hurdles debut recently. This stiffer track will help.
¼ pt win Chapmanship @ 7/2
6.25 Barton Knoll was just run out of it last time at Bangor with Air de Rock close behind and on the revised weights and a stiffer track, I’m with the placings being reversed, Tricky contest.
1/4pt Win Air De Rock @ 3/1
7.00 Few make appeal on current form or on the ground and with a longshot in Gaelic Poet , who has showed ability in better contests and could surprise.
¼ pt ew Gaelic Poet @ 25/1
7.30 Thegirlfrommilan has the best Hunter Chase form and comes here in ted hot form landing a hat-trick of points. Most solid fav.
¾ pt win Thegirlfrommilan @ evens
