Johnny Drama 3.30 @ 10/1
Nicholas T 4.25 @ 7/1
Graceful Lady 3.55 @ 12/1
Selected Newbury- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
1.45 The admirable Dakota Gold comes here on a 5 timer but does step up into Group class and the drop in trip wont help with other front runners in the field. The in form Judicial goes well here and is a nice ew bet.
¼ pt ew Judicial @ 7/1
2.20 The back to form Desert Encounter has a clear edge at the weights and also at the trip and ground. Looks the best fav of the day.
1pt win Desert Encounter @ 7/4
2.55 A group 2 for juveniles and a hard task for Mystery Power carrying a penalty , down in trip and returning from a break. Pierre lupin impressed on debut but the form of Malotru has more substance and can land this winnable event .
¼ pt win Malotru @ 9/2
3.30 The progressive Forest of Dean goes for another win but the 5 pound hit wont help and the front running Johnny drama has an excellent chance of turning the tables. He wasn’t well drawn at York but willingly galloped to the front and kept it going all the way to be beaten just 2 lengths, but does have a hefty 5 pound pull. Really good ew bet .
½ pt ew Johnny Drama @ 10/1
4.40 The hat-trick seeking Fantastic Blue finds himself up against older horses struggling to get their noses in front with none looking a winner about to happen. The 3 pound hit could have been worse and is determined in the finish.
½ pt win Fantastic Blue @ 9/4
5.15 Oloroso hasn’t been going badly of late and has dropped to a good mark. He could well take these along and take a bit of catching .
¼ pt win Oloroso @ 9/2
Selected Ayr- good ground on this flat and galloping track
1,25 Viceregent has run well in all 3 tries and comes here on the back of a 2 lengths 5th behind today’s fav Plymouth Rock , but enjoys a 5 pound pull and the longer trip will also help. The form has been franked and a very nice ew play .
½ pt ew Viceregent @ 12/1
2.00 Kynren is a classy handicapper and can exploit this drop in grade . Hard to see what can spoil his day.
¾ pt win Kynren @ 9/4
2.40 The Silver Cup and the first task is to identify where the early pace will come from and the two likely front runners are the in form Hyperfocus and the down in trip Lincoln Park. Both of these would have preferred a little more juice in the ground, but the latter is very interesting, as he’s had a light time of it of late and as he stays further, if he got to the front could take some catching, especially with Oisin Murphy riding . This pair are drawn middle to low , so the stands side runners could struggle , which includes the in form and fancied Lahore. Royal Residence is rarely far away and well drawn to execute his strong finish. Split stakes.
¼ pt ew each and why not a small rev fc Royal residence @ 16/1 Lincoln Park @ 25/1
3.15 A group 3 for juvenile fillies and yesterday’s winner Piece of Paradise has to be respected after that good victory. I was with Orlath last time when winning at long odds but he longer trip and quicker ground both concerns. Lambeth Walk did little wrong last time when 2nd in a small field but a decent event and the 3rd horse brings plenty of substance to the form. Could be her day.
¼ pt win Lambeth Walk @ 9/2
3.50 PREMIUM RACE
4.25 There is no doubt that Nicholas T is on a tough enough mark but continues to run his race whatever is chucked at him and over his favourite C&D, a very nice ew bet.
½ pt ew Nicholas T @ 7/1
4.55 PREMIUM RACE
5.30 Irish raider Shamad has won 3 of his last 4 and ran a blinder from a bad draw in the other. He was a cosy winner last time and the 3 pound hit could have been much worse. Nicely drawn and promises to stay this slightly longer trip.
½ pt win Shamad @ 9/2
Selected Chelmsford City- all weather- polytrack
2.15 This has a most winnable look to it and offers a good opportunity for the well treated and drawn Poeta Brasiliero. He goes well over C&d and could even try to lead this all the way. A useful 5 pound claimer rides but a bit worried regarding first time tongue tie.
½ pt win Poeta Brassileiro @ 9/2
3.25 There was very little between war Glory, documenting and Charles Molson over C&D recently when the former was a good winner but the tip is overpriced and could even try to lead this all the way .
¼ pt ew Charles Molson @ 8/1
4.00 Furious is 2 from 2 over C&D and the hat-trick looks on with a few of these sure to set an ideal strong pace for this willing late player.
¾ pt win Furious @ 5/2
4.35 A weak event and a good opportunity for the in form Sea Battle, effective on the surface and longer trip looks fine, but bit worried about the jockey booking.
¼ pt win Sea Battle @ 3/1
Chelmsford City placepot
Seleced Catterick- good to firm on tis undulating and sharp track
3.00 The admirable Champarisi could struggle down in trip and up in the weights, but will give it a right go. Near Kettering is 2 from 2 for his new stable and comes here on the back of a smart win over hurdles. Could exploit a winning opportunity.
½ pt win Near Kettering @ 5/1
3.35 Good opportunity for the front running Auckland lodge to double up on a recent C&D win.
½ pt win Auckland Lodge @ 7/4
4.10 plenty of in form types effective over C&D but many of these now on testing marks which offers an opportunity for the consistent Fantastic Ms Fox , who goes well over C&D to land this off a workable mark.
¼ pt ew Fantastic Ms Fox @ 5/1
5.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Newmarket- good to firm on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
2.45 The massively in form and reliable has another wining opportunity despite the 3 pound hit and his rivals hard to fancy.
¾ pt win Chatham House @ 9/4
3.55 Graceful lady comes into this in pretty good form and is one of the field with no issues at trip. Very nice ew bet to upset the prolific youngster Land of Oz .
½ pt ew Graceful Lady @ 12/1
5.00 Should be straight forward for stagehand.
½ pt win Stagehand @ 5/6
5.35 PREMIUM RACE
Been through the Wolver card , with great detail and I'm happy to give the whole meting a swerve. Nothing really worth risking hard earned on. Back tomorrow
