Syrena 1.50 @ 7/2
West Wizard 3.45 @ 4/1

Selected Limerick- good to firm on this undulating and easy track
1.50 Syrena is holding her form well and doesn’t have a great deal to beat.
1/2 pt win Syrena @ 7/2
2.20 All The King’s Men has a clear edge at the weights but tried to make al last time in better company and only just failed, but it was a steady gallop which wont be the case today with 4 of the other five known for getting busy early , so this could drop to the hold up horse. The capable Port Lions .
¼ pt win Port lions @ 4/1
2.55 PREMIUM RACE
5.05 Sharjah is a most consistent if luckless type , placed in 9 of his last 11 runs and comes here on the back of a good effort when 3rd in a big field over a trip shorter than ideal. Wont be far away.
¼ pt ew Sharjah @ 7/1
Selected Ayr- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.35 The back to form Nibras Again should double up against hard to fancy rivals.
½ pt win Nibras Again @ 11/8
4.10 Nicholas T comes here on the back of an excellent 2nd at Hamilton , in a strongly run affair which suited this late player, and a return to this track is in his favour, as he’s a 3 times C&D winner, but only has 4 career win in 38 tries, the last 2 years ago , and as this is unlikely to be strongly run so best to look elsewhere. Smile A mIle was my laying service PLACE lay of the day last time in a race where there was plenty of early pace and also at a stiff track. He has a far better race makeup today and this flat and galloping track far more suitable. The very hard to win with Calvados Spirit is the only other prominent racer, but when the tip won last time at Haydock , by a comfortable two lengths , he staked the lead, then kicked on for a clear win.He is 6 pounds higher, but in the context of this race, could get away with it.
½ pt win Smile A Mile @ 4/1
4.40 Global Spirit was a strong finishing 3rd at Haydock just a few days ago at this trip and similar ground and could well go a few places today. That race was fairly steadily run , which wont be the case today with the poorly handicapped but well drawn Smugglers Creek sure to try and make all. The tip’ stamina was still a question mark last time, but no reservations now. This is not a big ask and looks a most solid fav.
¾ pt ew Global Spirit @ 9/4
5.15 Not the kind of race for a decent bet, a big field low grade sprint , full of professional losers and ridden by amateur jockeys. Irish raider Mr Shelby is a prominent racer and does have the form to go mighty close and shouldn’t be far away.
¼ pt ew MR Shelby @ 6/1
Selected Market Rasen- good ground on this mostly flat and sharp track
2.10 A weak opener and the very excellent Alltimegold, 4 wins and a 2nd in his last 5, is only 4 pounds higher for his last win , but does go up markedly in trip which should give the edge to the ex-Irish mare in Montys Angel, who when last seen was a good 3rd at Southwell off this mark, ground and trip . She’s yet to win in 11 tries, but fair to expect better having her first run for the mighty Dan Skelton stable, but just a small play.
¼ pt win Montys Angel @ 7/4
2.40 This looks a match between Oneofthesenight, who is 2 from 2, but the second win came two and a half years after the first, so warning bells ring , as he has the profile of a fragile type, who can’t take much racing and is a likely “ Bouncer” understandable that Win My wings is the fav, as besides having stronger form, doesn’t bring any doubts to the table.
3.15 The ex-Irish Game Line ran well enough in a better race last time at Ffos Las to take care of modest rivals.
½ pt win Game Line @ 4/1
3.45 This is so winnable with Overtoyoujay penalised for landing a weak affair last time , but still has claims against modest rivals. Mjuch more was expected by Very First Time last time on his first start for dan skelton, but ran poorly and today’s big drop in trip very unlikely to help as will the drying ground. Nicki Steel has become a bit in and out, but on a going day would be a threat but off a good mark , I’m risking West Wizard who won well over C&D last year off around this mark, and has showed enough in two recent comeback spins to take this.
½ pt win West Wizard @ 4/1
4.50 Mister Universum has become hard to win with but did well enough last time when 2nd at this trip when held up for a late charge. That form is good enough to take this.
½ pt win Mister Universum @ 10/3
