Limato 3.15 @ 5/2
Flight Risk 2.55 @ 9/4
Lady Kermit 4.00 @ 11/8
Selected Windsor- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
1.40 An odds on fav in the shape of newcomer Kingsholm, but he’d had to run to decent level on debut to get the better of the front running Homespin, who has to be a good bet at the odds.
¾ pt win Homespin @ 3/1
2.15 The very capable Oasis Fantasy bounced back to form last time when making all at Lingfield, beating a couple of decent yardsticks with ease and off only a 2 pound higher mark, looks a really good bet in a winnable heat. Big Kitten reserves his best for the all weather, Speed company prefers softer ground, Banditry is better at shorter and Sextant ran only a fair race when 4th off this mark last time. Great bet at the odds.
¾ pt win Oasis Fantasy @ 6/1
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.00 The front running Lady Kermit has held her own in useful company and should be away and gone.
¾ pt win Lady Kermit @ 11/8
Selected The Curragh- good to firm on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
2.20 You would expect the classy sprinter Speak in Colours to land this, but we wont get rich at 6/4 .
½ pt win Speak in Colours @ 6/4
2.55 Flight Risk has always been a useful sort , but wins were always elusive, but put that right this season and comes here on a hat-trick and very fair odds to nail it in a winnable heat.
¾ pt win Flight Risk @ 9/4
3.30 English raider Addeyebb comes here on the back of a win at Royal Ascot in the mud, form which gives him a clear advantage in this modest, but he’s usually kept away from fast ground, so not the cert he looks.
4.40 A quality Group 2 sprint for juveniles and the likely winner is Siskin who has impressed winning both of his starts, but rather just watch at just 5/4.
5.20 The Irish Derby and it concerns three who were in the first 4 at Epsom where Anthony Van Dyke came from off the pace to just deny both Broome and Madhmoon . I fancy he will confirm places as the other pair had first run on him, but again happy to watch at just 5/4 .
Selected Newcastle- all weather- tapeta. The track is stiff and galloping
1.50 Acid test for hat-trick seeking Air Raid bur besidea a hefty penalty has never cut the mustard on the all weather. Deep Intrigue has winning form over C&D and has had a few excuses of late. SDS rides and could be away and gone.
¼ pt win Deep Intrigue @ 7/1
3.00 Hard to get excited about the prospects of many in the Pitman’s Derby consolation race so well worth being with the reliable Busy Street who has winning form over C&D, is well drawn and his mark is workable and he’s also a most genuine sort. Best longshot of the day.
½ pt ew Bust Street @ 18/1
3.35 The Pitman’s Derby and it’s often wise sticking to proven performers at the track. Cosmelli was a shock winner of the consolation race last year and is only 2 pounds higher today. Since that win he has run some good races over C&D and will do for me at long odds.
¼ pt ew Cosmeli @ 33/1
4.10 This is so winnable and if we excuse a rare below par run by Archive last time, C&D winner Archive must be worth a play at nice odds.
¼ pt win Achive @ 8/1
5.50 Lawmaking has a course win on his CV and his general form of late is good enough to be a contender in a winnable finale.
¼ pt win Lawmaking @ 13/2
No Newcastle placepot
Selected Chester- good to firm on this flat and sharp track. A low draw is a big advantage as is an undisputed lead.
2.00 A very weak opener and only two can possibly winwith clear preference for Puerto banus over Ambersand, who looks a bouncer to me. The tip is not well drawn but should be able to obtain a good pitch and win with ease.
¾ pt win Puero Banus @ 4/5
2.35 Wid Edric could just take to the drop in trip and from s good draw, if pinging the lids, could be very hard to catch. The hat-trick seeking Angel Alexander and reliable and likeable Sh Can Boogie have stiff tasks from wide draws.
¼ pt win Wild edric @ 7/1
3.10 Jack’s point comes here on the back of two very decent runs and from a good draw could be hard to catch from the front.
¼ pt win Jack’s Point @ 15/2
3.45 Rodnee Tee is a right speedball but struggled last time in a hot Beverley event on slow ground. From the plot draw he could be away and gone.
¼ pt win Rodnee Tee @ 4/1
5.30 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Newmarket- good to firm on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
2.05 A listed event for juveniles but as the market leaders have a bit to prove on quick ground or at the trip, going for a longshot in Companion, with no issues regarding ground or trip and level of form pretty good.
¼ pt win Companion @ 14/1
3.15 A Group 3 and despite carrying a penalty the classy Limato should be too good for these.
¾ pt win LImato @ 5/2
5.35 In a winnable finale the nod goes to the in form Gallic as the short priced fav Ocean Paradise has a bit to prove on drying ground.
¼ pt win Gallic @ 4/1
No Newmarket placepot
Selected York – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
2.45 PREMIUM RACE
3.20 PREMIUM RACE
3.55 Not a strong heat and looks good for progressive stayer True Destiny.
1/ 2pt win True Destiny @ 2/1
5.05 A novelty race in terns all jockeys are jumps jockeys, so have to be trusted regarding skilld over a quick five furlongs. A strong pace is on the cards and the strong finish of Roman River could just win the day.
¼ pt win Roman River @ 7/1
Selected Doncaster- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
5.25 There’s very little early pace in this open handicap which may just give the edge to the capable if frustrating Knowing Glance who has gone close off higher marks of late and whilst not being an out and out front runner, he does race prominently and could well control off a steady gallop and that could be enough for an overdue win.
¼ pt win Knowing Glance @ 8/1
7.00 Abate nailed a deserved win last time on soft ground but is fine on quick turf. He remains on a workable mark and will probably endeavour to lead all the way, which is possible
¼ pt win Abate @ 5/2
7.30 A decent pace is on the cards which will help the cause of the well treated Gabrial The Devil , worth a dabble in a winnable race.
¼ pt win Gabrial The Devil @ 8/1
8.00 Another winnable contest with the in form Cold Harbour the one to beat, but that is entirely possible on this speed track. Ad Libitum ran some big races last year ,but hasn’t showed a great deal this year, but this is much easier and capable of landing this.
¼ pt win Ad Libitum @ 8/1
8.30 Ideal Candy is usually seen running her usual bold race from the front at Beverley , but from a good draw and a good race make up for a front runner, could be hard to catch .
¼ pt win Ideal Candy @ 7/2
Selected Lingfield- good to firm on this sharp and undulating track.
5.45 Not a deep opener and hard to look outside the first 3 in the market but as Fearlessly returns from a long break and only brings Ok all weather form to the table and with Stone Cougar penalised, the door is open to the lightly raced Born Leader a good 3rd at this trip and mark last time on polytrack with the return to turf not looking an issue.
¾ pt win Born Leader @ 4/1
6.45 The In form Spanish Star has a job on hid hooves off a testing mark and also dropping in trip on ground quick enough. Roundabout Magic has run some good races over C&D and his recent comeback spins have showed a degree of encouragement. This may be set up for his strong finish.
¼ pt ew Roundabout Magic @ 10/1
7.15 Youngster inspired Thought has done really well with 4 wins from 5 starts, but the only defeat came at this shorter trip. Veteran Bowson Fred can still go a good gallop and could have too much pace for the fav on suitable ground and C&D .
¼ pt win Bowson Fred @ 3/1
7.45 a very weak contest but worth a dabble on the capable if out of form Classy Cailin having her first run for Pam Sly who does very well with new intakes.
¼ pt win Classy Caitlin @ 11/2
8.45 The lightly raced Song of The Isles sluiced in over C&d last time and as this is more quantity than quality , a good bet to defy the 6 pound penalty.
½ pt win Song of The Isles @ 11/2
