Today’s Fortune for a fiver
3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Forseti 12.10 @ 2/1
Never Do Nothing 12.20 @ 6/5
Cepage 2.00 @ 8/1
Selected Fakenham – good to soft on this sharp track
1.10 Back Buble has been going well in deeper races and has ideal conditions. Just a worry about the track for this hold up type.
¼ pt win Black Buble @ 6/1
1.45 Perfect Moment comes here on a C&D hat-trick but a 13 pound penalty will take some overcoming . Be My Sea held his form well second race back from a long break and this track should suit.
¼ pt win Be My sea @ 4/1
2.55 Evas Diva is massively consistent but so hard to win with and preference is for smart flat horse Hats Off To Larry.
¼ pt win Hats Off To Larry @ 9/4
No fakenham placepot
Selected Southwell- all weather – fibresand
12.10 Both Jazz Hands an Makambe are regulars here but both now high in the weights which offers a good opportunity for Forseti , a close 3rd over C&D last time and should be nailing this.
½ pt win Forseti @ 2/1
12.45 It’s a matter of how far for 1/7 shot Xian express and it could be a long old way .
1.20 Moonraker won well over C&d last time but the 4 pound hit could stop him . Samovar continues to go well over C&D and remains on a workable mark and is also far better drawn than last time. Foolaad is a 4 times C&D winner and worth a play to improve on his recent comeback spin where he ran well for a long way.
¼ pt win Foolaad @ 13/2
1.55 Power link goes for a 4th win in 5 races and despite being new to this surface, the stable does very well here and is not badly priced in a most winnable race.
½ pt win Power Link @ 11/8
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.05 angel Lane was found out by the penalty over C&D last time, but not by much and has a clear chance in a winnable heat .
½ pt win Angel Lane @ 15/8
Selected Cheltenham – soft ground on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
12.15 It’s very hard to knock Redford Road with 3 wins and 2 seconds in just 5 career runs. He comes here on the back of a win here in the mud , but over a longer trip . This looks quite a deep contest with chances given to most, but again he’ll run his race.
¼ pt win Redford Road @ 3/1
12.50 PREMIUM RACE
1.25 The very classy Champ wil take some beating but a 4/9, happy to watch .
2.00 This has a winnable look to it with the classy Kalshnikov being his with a 6 poud penalty for coming only 2nd and with recent winners Magic Saint and Oldgrangewood a bit to do off their nw marks over this testing C&D . It’s a bit of a worry that Cepage rarely sees the racetrack , he only ran once last year , but it was over c&D and resulted in an excellent 2nd to the very wonderful Frodon. He ran an absolute blinder on his comeback spin when a close 2nd at Aintree ehind Riders on The Storm , who has since sluiced home in higher grade. He comes here on the back o another excellent effort over this C&D when 4th of 13, just beaten a few lengths off this testing mark. That form puts him in with strong claims today, but just the worry, that given his race profile, this could come a bit soon, but worth the risk at very good odds for his chance .
½ pt ew Cepage @ 8/1
2.35 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Musselburgh- good to soft on this flat and galloping track
12.20 Never Do Nothing is a lofty 91 rated flat horse and has been sold to his present stable for £136,000 !! Should start repaying today.
½ pt win Never Do Nothing @ 6/5
1,05 This has a winnable look to it and worth trying track regular who ran well for a long way on his recent comeback spin.
¼ pt win Arthurs secret @ 7/2
1.40 PREMIUM RACE
2.15 A good quality and competitive handicap hurdle and I’m with the useful in form flat horse Sir Chauvelain who has 3 C&d wins on his CV.
¼ pt ew Sir Chauvelain @ 11/2
Selected Exeter- very soft ground on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
1..15 This has a winnable look to it and the nod goes to Darlac after a most solid effort over C&D in the mud last time.
¼ pt winDarlac @ 10/3
2.25 the Kings writ goes very well here and will come on for his recent comeback spin and could be up to defying this tough mark.
¼ pt ew The Kings writ @ 8/1
3.35 king roland will be hard to beat but after an excellent 2nd over C&D last time in the mud, Buckhorn George is an absolute ew bet for practically nothing .
½ pt ew Buckhorn George @ 4/1
