Ginger Fox 1,25 @ 4/1
Power of Strength 2.50 @ 7/2
Muqaareb 5.00 @ 3/1
Addeybb 3.05 evens
Selected Ascot- good to firm on this stiff and galloping
The Shergar Cup where 4 teams of jockeys compete for this coveted prize. Often races are tactical .
1.05 One of my favourite horses of all time, the very wonderful Caspian Prince can still cut quite a dash despite now being a 9yo . He’s going to bomb out and may well have company from the consistent but hard to win with Final Venture, but the selection has dropped to a good mark and with him to make every post a winning post.
¼ pt winCaspian Prince @ 10/1
1.40 This has a winnable look to it and chancing the well treated Time To Study , who is the likely pacesetter and on a good enough mark to go all the way.
¼ pt win Time To Study @ 6/1
2.15 The in form Mandarin has to go close despite a further nudge up the weights and in grade , but preference for the capable Indianapolis, who improved when given a patient ride last time and will be flying late on.
¼ pt ew Indianoplis @ 6/1
2.50 Power Of Strength took a bit of time to get going last time, but finished to some effect catching an accomplished front runner. A good pace is assured with confirmed front runner Zhui Feng in the field, who has dropped to a good mark, but hasn’t fired for a while. This looks winnable and the tip can reel these in late on.
½ pt win Power of Strength @ 7/2
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.00 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Redcar – good to soft ground on this flat and galloping track
2.20 this has a winnable look to it and the front running Tadaawol likes it here and could slip the field at long odds.
¼ pt ew Tadaawol @ 16/1
2.55 An open event but the softer ground will help Wahoo and worth a play at nice odds.
¼ pt ew Wahoo @ 10/1
3.30 A couple of hat-trick seekers in Betsey Trotter and golden Parade but both like to front run, as do a few others , and both would do well to feature on ground softer than ideal and off testing marks. Lucky Beggar comes here on consistent form and wont mind the soft ground and will appreciate the strong pace.
¼ pt ew Lucky Beggar @ 8/1
4.05 A short priced fav in the lightly raced and hat-trick seeking Country , who runs for a top stable, but plenty short enough on his chance and preference is for Billy No Mates on a decent mark and back to his optimum trip and likes soft ground.
¼ pt ew Billy No Mates @ 8/1
5.05 A weak finale and a decent opportunity for the Sir Mark Prescott youngster in Volcanique, who looks likely to appreciate the longer trip.
¼ pt win Volcanique @ 7/2
Selected Haydock- soft ground on this flat and galloping track
1.25 Hat-trick seeking Bring us Paradise has a bit to prove up in trip, the ratings and on soft ground. The consistent ginger Fox is now on a tough enough mark, but not by much and has no issues with the ground. Could be a deserved win.
½ pt win Ginger Fox @ 4/1
1.55 Club Wexford is in tip top form and well drawn to probably give it a good go from the front and could nail another one.
¼ pt win Club Wexford @ 7/1
2.30 Miss O’Connor is 2 from 2 but this is a mighty step up in grade. Red Starlight comes out the best at the weights and with the ground no issue, has to be a nice ew bet.
¼ pt ew Red Starlight @ 7/1
3.05 Should be easy peasy for mud loving and classy Addeybb .
¾ pt win Addeyyb @ evens
3.40 The lightly raced Came From the Dark won well over C&D a few races ago and has held his form well since. Looks the one to beat here.
¼ pt win Came From the Dark @ 3/1
4.15 A stack of early pace in this which should set it up nicely for the strong finishing Somewhere Secret who wont mind the ground.
¼ pt ew Sonewhere Secret @ 6/1
4.45 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Chelmsford City- all weather- polytrack
2,45 PREMIUM RACE
3.55 With plenty of early pace on in this, this could drop nicely for the capable Island of Life .
¼ pt win Island of Life @ 9/2
4.30 There has been a flood of money for Karnavaal today and as he ticks so many boxes will take some beating.
½ pt win Karnavaal @ 13/8
5.00 A weak finale and as Junior Rip drops in trip and is looking hard to win with and with tronador having showed little albeit in better grade, decent chance for C&d specialist, Muraaqeb to nail another win.
½ pt win Muraaqeb @ 3/1
Chelmsford City placepot
NO advice from Newmarket- nothing concrete to be worthy of a bet
Just the one play at Lingfield on a very trappy card – going is good on this undulating and sharp track.
6.15 Johan ran a really good race on debut from the front and looks a most solid short priced fav for those of you who like to play shorties.
¾ pt win Johan @ 5/6
Selected Ayr- heavy ground on this flat and galloping track
6.25 He’s on a losing run , but hasn’t been far away of late and the deep ground can turn things around for Jacob’s Pillow.
¼ pt win Jacob’s Pillow @ 4/1
6.55 The bang in form Dandy’s Beano handles the mud far better than his rivals and despite a hefty penalty , looks another solid shortie.
½ pt win Dandy’s Beano @ evens
7.25 The lightly raced Memphis Bleek wasn’t beaten far at all in a better race than this on the Nottingham mud and this is a good opportunity.
¼ pt win Memphis Bleek @ 9/4
8.25 Hulcote is a maiden after 21 tries , but has gone clso a number of times and was a highly creditable 2nd here last time in the mud behind one who has sluiced in since. Every dog has its day, should be his today.
¼ pt win Hulcote @ 2/1
