Beyond Equal 1.50 @ 9/4
Jazeel 4.00 @ 3/1
Selected Newton Abbot- good to firm on this flat and sharp track
2.10 The Irish raid The Jam Man very much has the bit between his teeth and the switch to hurdles is no issue. He won easily off this mark last time and will take some beating today but the in form and very wonderful veteran Sporting Boy looks sure to run his race, probably from the front and has to be an attractive ew bet.
½ pt ew Sporting Boy @ 10/1

3.15 Kingston was red hot last Summer but recent runs have been disappointing. There was some money for him last time , so worth s dabble down in grade.
¼ pt win Kingston @ 13/2
3.45 Despite a penalty for a recent win, Musical Stardust still comes out the best at the weights with C&D likely to suit.
½ pt win Musical Stardust @ 3/1
4.20 The highly enthusiastic and tenacious Little Windmill is always good value for money and could take some catching around a C&D he likes.
½ pt win Little Windmill @ 4/1

Seleted Sandown- good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
1.50 This is there for the taking with so many of the field just going through the motions. Beyond Equalm comes here on the back of a good win at Bath, and in the context of this race, should overcome the 5 pound hit.
3/4 pt win Beyond Equal @ 9/4

3.25 The very much back to form Elarqam could well carry the penalty , but the strong front running Chief Ironside could provide a shock back on his preferred fast ground. Royal Line ended last season with two good wins, but the drop in trip is the problem today.
¼ pt win Chief Ironside @ 10/1
4.00 Not a deep contest and a good opportunity for the in form Jazeel to convert a couple of near misses into a deserved win. The massively in form Badenscloth , 4 wins in his last 5 , has a lot to do on his new testing mark and on ground far quicker than preferred. If Elector could lead up, he would be mighty dangerous.
½ pt win Jazeel @ 3/1

No advice from Ireland tonight
Just having the one bet at the all weather polytrack of Chelmsford City
6.00 There was very little between Brigand, Prince Rock and Come on Bear when they filled the places behind a runaway winner, all were held up and effectively just ran through beaten horses. Tarseekh is effective over C&D and remains on a good mark. He was just run down over C&D last time when as usual front rank all the way . He’s been very unlucky in the draw, but as nothing else has a history of going on, could just manage to lead the pack. As far as we are concerned , this race will be settled in the first furlong. If the tip can head the pack, he should be able to hang on.
¼ pt win Tarseekh @ 3/1
Selected Haydock- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
5.50 There’s quite a lot of early pace on in this which will help the in form and prolific MR Coco Bean. He’s been nudged up a further 4 pounds but could just get away with it in a winnable heat. He was unlucky not to win over C&D a few starts ago on fast ground and expect another late charge for the line. The fav is the well treated but out of form Pioneering, who I can’t see faring any better on unsuitable quick turf.
½ pt win Mr Coco Bean @ 9/2
6.20 Tenax is very consistent but just can’t nail one, but good opportunity tonight as his rivals are all happier on easy ground. He drops in grade and should be beating these.
½ pt win Tenax @ 7/2
6.55 This is easy to read as the early paces in Celsius and Vee Man Ten are sure to bomb out , which wont help their cause. Vee Man Ten looked sure to score last time after showing scintillating early pace but was nailed late on in lower grade by quite a modest one. So off a higher mark and with unwanted company, looks vulnerable. Celsuius won over C&D in the mud and then did well at Windsor when again trying to lead all the way and was only touched off late on, impressing with his attitude. Mr Buttons ran well last time but the nod goes to the down in grade and consistent True Hero .
¼ p win True Hero @ 7/2
8.00 This will take little winning and the vote goes to Warning Time who showed last time that she has the stamina for this trip and this more conventional track should help.
¼ pt win Warning Fire @ 10/3
8.30 Drying ground no help to Arcanada while the longer trip could catch the useful and in form Reputation out. Absolutio is a bold front runner, but cold have a bit of company so preference is for the down in grade Certain Lad , who was 4th in a hot handicap over C&D on quick ground , which would be good enough to land this.
¼ pt win Certain Lad @ 5/1
Selected Beverley – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
7.15 Make on Madam hasn’t been at her best of late, but has dropped to a good mark and in grade.She’s well drawn and has 3 C&D wins on her CV. This is not strong and worth a dabble.
¼ pt win Make on Madam @ 9/2
8.20 Pearl Noir gets full marks for enthusiasm and consistency, but wins often elude him. He’s going to bomb out and runs this C&D well. He’s not terribly drawn and on ground that suits is sure to give us a good run for our money at nice odds.
¼ pt ew Pearl Noir @ 9/1
