12.15 agent of Fortune is on a right roll since joining Gary Moore with 4 wins and an unlucky 4th . he’s only two pounds higher for his last win and this wont take much winning . He’s a dual C&d winner and likely to come late and fast to settle this.
¾ pt win agent Of Fortune @ 7/4
12.50 A very weak seller and at the weights looks a match between dream Magic , proven over C&D and Sassoon , who goes up in trip by a massive half a mile.
¾ pt win dream Magic @ 4/5
1.25 This looks likely to be fought out by the In form pair of C&D winners in Lady dancelot and Fizzy Feet who are hard to split at the weights .
¼ pt rev fc Lady Dancelot – Fizzy Feet
2.00 The useful Red Mist has had little racing of late and returns from another long break, this time of 8 months. He front runs , which is a positive in this field of hold up types, which gives him an edge , but is unproven on the surface and at short odds makes little appeal . the reliable Stay Classy is now just too high in the weights and the nod goes to the in form silent attack just ahead of another in form C&D specialist in Goring .
¼ pt win Silent attack @ 9/2
2.35 Not a deep race and a chance is taken with Lady Alavesa , whose only win came off around this mark over C&D and has since hit the frame frequently off higher marks and better races. Her recent comeback spin came at Newcastle and it was an OK run, but has been off the track a worrying 7 weeks. That aside, she has clear claims .
¼ pt ew Lady Alavesa @ 7/1
3.10 Top trainer William Haggas saddles newcomer in Surround , who runs in famous colours and adds to the puzzle where there are 3 with decent levels of form on this surface in Believe in Love, Mrs upjohn and True Scarlet with the nod going to the latter after a good 2nd at Chelmsford City and the 3rd horse has run well since.
¼ pt win true Scarlet @ 11/4
3.40 The once useful Holiday Magic is back to form with his present stable and did little wrong here last time when 2nd from a bad draw. He drops in trip and that gives a chance for Fortissimo, who runs for a top stable and last time out led them a merry old dance here until weakening late on . The drop in trip is in his favour as is the drop in the weights and first time blinkers a positive for this stable. Draw could have bee kinder but I’ll be having a nice play at the odds.
½ pt ew fortissimo @ 12/1
Seleced Kempton – good to soft on this flat and sharp track
Looks very much a match between the penalised pair of Fraser Island and Lord Lamington , but the latter’s form looks stronger and he was the better horse on the flat and this C&D and ground look fine.
½ pt win Lord Lamington @ 13/8
1.30 Samy Bill is 2 from2 this year but a stiff task today with his massive 11 pound penalty . Mercian Prince has won this for the last two years , but on better ground while Sao is capable and well treated but so hard to win with .
2.05 At the weights , a cracking chance for the very wonderful Frodon but both runs this season not his best but remains the one to beat today. Top Notch comes here on a hat-trick, but didn’t have that much to spare over Kauto Riko last time and Born Survivor ran well for a long way in the race.
2.40 A wide open handicap hurdle but at theodds, the determined front running Vive Le Voi wil give us a good run for our money . debestyman comes here on the back of two good runs and is well respected down in trip .
¼ pt ew Vive Le Roi @ 7/4
3.15 Not a deep event and the classy and in form On The Blind Side should have too much for these.
¾ pt win on The blind Side @ 7/4
3.45 The short priced fav is Never Adapt but three runs in 3 seasons suggests strongly he has problems so may well not back his good run up last time at Cheltenham , where he had the reliable Ecu De La Noviere a few lengths behind but this shorter trip and easier ground will suit and could get revenge. We could do without the presence of the free running New Agenda as the tip likes to boss things up front but can run his race if having to dispute.
½ pt win Ecu De La Noviere @ 3/1
Selected Wetherby – very soft ground on this flat and galloping track
2.15 PREMIUM RACE
2.50 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Warwick- soft ground on this flat and sharp track
12.40 PREMIUM RACE
1.15 PREMIUM RACE
1.50 A cracking grade 2 novice chase and the nod goes to the progressive Highest Sun who brings the best form to the table and no issues with ground or trip .
¼ pt win highest Sun@ 2/1
2.25 Another competitive Grade 2 for novices but this time over hurdles and hard to rule anything out but the nod goes to the consistent Irish raider in décor Irlandais who’s at good odds considering he brings the best form to the table.
½ pt win décor Irlandais @ 15/2
3.00 An ultra competitive stayers chase with no prisoners taken early on as there are a number of front runners , but unlikely to stay there. The short list is very long with all of : Le Breuil, Crosspark, The Conditional. Kimberlite Candy, Petite Power and Bobo Mac having clear claims, but the nod goes to the in form latter despite having stamina to prove, but is shaping like a stayer .
¼ pt ew bobo Mac @ 8/1
3.35 Another massively open event and again the short list is long with all of : sire du Berlais, Stony Mountain, Tedham. Igor, Doc Penfro , One for The team and silver Sheen all needed to be strongly considered but the nod goes to the Irish trained latter who comes here on a ha-trick and the form is really good.
¼ pt ew Silver Sheen @ 8/1
Selected Chelmsford City- all weather – polytrack
4.45Asdaa is going well but is looking hard to win with and switches to polytrack, , which poses further concerns. Visionara is a similar type, rarely far away but wins rare, but as she’s proven over the trip and surface, could be her night.
¼ pt win Visionara @ 3/1
5.15 Xian express has a facile task at the weights, but that was the case last time and it was an almighty struggle to prevail at southwell , running to well below his mark. He looks an odds on shot to take on especially going up in trip by so much , but the others are hard to back too.
5.45 Almufti did well to win from a bad draw last time and could be up to overcoming the 5 pound it. The fav is the consistent Merchant of Venice but is looking held off this mark. Samphire Coast is rarely far away , especially over this C&D and worth a dabble at the odds.
¼ pt win Samphire Coast @ 10/1
6,45 It was a weak event which Cat Royale nailed over C&D last time, but this is no harder and is taken to confirm form over the placed horses in Kerrara and molten Lava .
1/2 pt win Cat Royale @ 10/3
