6 50p doubles, 4 25p trebles & 50p ew acc
Port Soif 4.45 @ 6/1
Kinloch Pride 1.45 @ 7/1
Maulsden May 2.45 @ 11/2
Gentle Look 2.55 @ 7/2
Selected Musselburgh- good to firm on this flat, galloping and quick track
1.45 Kinloch Pride’s comeback spin was Ok considering she needs her first run back. She has run some good races over C&D and is nicely drawn middle to high. She drops into a grade where she’s won 5 times and a capable 3 pound claimer makes life a little easier. She’s tactically versatile and this wont take much winning.
½ pt win Kinloch Pride @ 7/1
2.15 Worth a small play on Truckinsby dropping in trip and could try and make all from a good draw.
¼ pt win Truckingsby @ 11/4
2.45 Chances can be given to all of these on their best form, but most would prefer a longer trip. Maulesden May ran well on her comeback spin and she runs this C&D well > joe Fanning rides her well and remains on a workable mark .
½ pt win Maulesden May @11/2
3.15 In a most winnable race well worth chancing She’ Zanarab dropping in trio as she handles the ground and running Ok of late.
¼ pt ew She’ Zanaarab
3.50 Another race that will take little winning and happy to play the well treated and draw n Robben Rainbow, who has run well at times of late and likes quick turf.
½ pt ew Robben Rainbow @ 11/1
Selected Redcar- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
2.55 Plenty of in form types but most having it to prove switching from the all weather or on testing marks. Gentle Look runs for Godophin and the drop in trip could be the answer .
½ pt win Gentle Look @ 7/2
5.10 Kodi Dream went close over C&D last time , which is good enough to take this modest finale. Stays on the same mark and can land this with a late thrust.
¼ pt win Kodi Dream @ 4/1
NO Redcar placepot
Selected Southwell – all weather- fibresand
2.05 Loose Chippings has run two mighty races here of late and with SDS riding , a deserved win is on, but is a short priced fav
2.35 The drop into selling company will make multiple track winner Mister Music hard to beat.
½ pt double Loose Chippings @ evens Mister Music @ 4/5
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.45 Port Soif runs this C&D well and the drop in grade wont go amiss.
½ pt win Port Soif @ 6/1
5.15 Chances has to be given to all of High Command, Seasearch, Katie Gale and Country N western as they are all effective over C&d, but the latter gets the nod, but just a small play being an apprentice race.
¼ pt win Country N Western @ 11/2
Selected Punchestown – good to soft on this undulating and galloping track
3.40 PREMIUM RACE
4.15 Moon Over Germany was nibbled at when sluicing in at Aintree, but under a massive penalty and on drying ground, would do very well to double up. Veteran Choco Bay sprung a 66/1 shock at the Cheltenham Festival , just getting the better of the admirable Bun Doran , but is only 3 pounds higher today, which is well manageable on old form . Interesting that the smallish stable crosses the Irish Sea , so much be a lively longshot.
¼ pt ew Choco Bay @ 16/1
4.50 The Le Touche cross country event and Enda Bolger goes for a 15th win in this race and is the undisputed king of this discipline . His sole runner is Josies Orders , who is still one of the best in this sphere and was 2nd over C&D last year. Looks a snip for odds on players.
¾ p win Josies Orders @ 8/11
5.30 The Grade 1 stayers event and the short priced fav is the highest rated in Baupame , who ran well when 4th at Cheltenham , but drying ground not ideal and he’s short enough for a horse who’s only had 1 win in 2 years. Many of these are hard to fancy on current form and on drying ground, so worth chancing Not Many left, who has quite a bit to find on the ratings, but is lightly raced and progressive . An excellent 3rd at Cheltenham followed up by a big run at Fairyhouse.
½ pt ew Not Many Left @ 7/1
6.05 You’d do exceptionally well finding the winner ofthis 25 runner handicap, where most have strong claims , but some folk will be cheering home the winner and my idea of the victor is English raide Captain Drake, who’s done really well since handicapping and is fine on the trip and ground.
¼ pt ew Captain Drake @ 22/1
6.40 PREMIUM RACE
7.15 I was with Elfile last time when an excellent 2nd at 25/1 in a red hot mare’s event , but dropping in trip , preference is for the capable Black Tears.
¾ pt win Black Tears @ 5/2
Selected Salisbury- good to firm on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
5.25 Little Palavar comes here fit from some reasonable efforts and in two runs over C&D on quick ground, has a win and a place. Nice longshot in a winnable race
½ pt ew Little Palavar @ 14/1
7.05 Hyanna did really well last year with 3 wins and will have benefitted from a recent comeback spin on the all weather. Remains on a tough mark but C&D fine as is the ground and we know she’ll be trying .
¼ pt win Hyanna @ 11/4
No Saloisbury placepot
Selected Chelmsford City- all weather- polytrack
5.45 We have a short proced fav in Lambeth Walk who looked good winning on debut , but does have a penalty and switches to synthetics. Littleton Hall brings very decent polytrack form to the table, while Praxelogy is a likely newcomer running for Mark Johnston
6.20 Lord Lammington has found his niche since being stepped up in trip and is taken to win again , despite the 5 pound penalty as all of his rivals were also winners las time, but none on polytrack.
½ pt win Lord Lammington @ 2/1
6.55 PREMIUM RACE
7.25 A red hot fillies Class1 event and the fav is Red Impression, who is 2 from 2 , but does return froma break and has a bad draw. The Irish raider Beau Warrior comes here on a 6 timer and is absolutely thriving. She has quite a but to find at the ratings, but is proven on the surface and trip and has a good draw.
¼ pt ew Beau Warrior @ 9/1
7.55 El Ghazwani was all out to succeed last time, but still has very decent claims despite the 3 pound hit with Big Kitten having it to prove on the surface and Poet’s prince on a testing mark .
¼ pt win El Ghazwani @ 4/1
8.55 The lightly raced Spirit Of Angel’s latest run , a close 3rd at this trip last time in a far stronger race than this and looks very likely to send fav backers home happy.
½ pt win Spirit of Angel @ 6/4
