50p ew Trixie & 50p ew treble
Reverant Crust 2.15 @ 7/1
The wicket Chicken 3.00 @ 10/3
Dylanseoghan 3.30 @ 15/2
Selected Kelso- very soft ground on this undulating and sharp track
1.15 This looks very much a match between the lightly raced Sirwilliamwallace , a good 2nd last time in the Ayr mud, but it wasn’t the strongest of heats, up against one of the most improved horses in training in Maid In Manhattan , a 6 time winner on the flat last season , at her best over staying distances in the mud and taking her winning mark from a lowly 46 to a lofty 79 and she showed that she has carried on this improvement over hurdles with an excellent 2nd at this trip behind Young Bull , who has boosted the form since. She took a step backwards last time at Haydock in a Listed event at Haydock , taking a late fall when beaten , but she was probably not up to the grade and is in calmer waters today and can get back on track today .
¼ pt win Maid In Manhattan @ 11/4
1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.15 Lastin Memories continues to be hard to win with and his record here not good.This is not a deep race and worth risking Reverant Crust at the odds. He’s had little racing in recent seasons but won well at his beloved Catterick at this trip until flopping next time at the same venue but up in trip . In the past he has run really well here in deep ground so worth a dabble. It’s never ideal though being with horses who have long absences from the track .
¼ pt win Reverant Crust @ 7/1
3.15 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Plumpton- heavy ground on this undulating and sharp track
1.30 A golden opportunity for Cap Du Methan to finally break his duck but this C&D could be sharp enough , but should struggle through , but happy to watch at 4/5 .
2.30 Very much a match between Cat Tiger and Young Lieutenant , and at the odds , not worth worrying about .
3.00 This is most winnable with only The Wicket Chicken proven at the trip and has a good run over C&D in the mud on his CV . She’s rarely far away but wins have been hard to come by of late . This is a race for conditional jockeys and the jockey booking could have been more positive , but despite the concerns , worth a go .
½ pt win The Wicket Chicken @ 10/3
3.30 Dylanseoghan comes into this on the back of two good runs here and no reason why he shouldn’t run his race again and very nice odds to nail this winnable heat Bill and Barn stepped up last time with a good 2nd at Chepstow but a bit to prove over a more benign track and up in grade.
½ pt win Dylanseoghan @ 15/2

Night racing fortune for a fiver
3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Seaforth 5.30 @ 3/1
Lucky Lodge 6.30 @ 11/2
Geizy Teizy 7.00 @ 2/1
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
4.30 A very tricky opener a stayers handicap for amateur jockeys and easy finding more negatives than positives for most , including the bang in form Greengage, 3 wins and a 2nd in his last 4 but up in the weights and trip and ridden by an inexperienced jockey, but despite all of that a worthy fav. Veteran Uncle Bernie has a good record here and comes here on the back of two good efforts , but over a longer trip . the jockey has won aboard him and has to be a lively longshot to appear late on the scene and go close.
¼ pt ew Uncle Bernie @ 20/1
5.00 A very weak event and it looks a cake walk for the in form Xian Express but happy to watch at short odds.
5.30 Seaforth was a very easy 8/1 winner for my Premium Tip Members last time out over C&D, doing well as he was drawn low and as he’s a hold up type had to forfeit plenty of ground before organising himself for the telling late thrust . He’s 4 pounds higher but did win as he liked and this isn’t a deep contest . Nice bet for the double.
½ pt win Seaforth @ 3/1
6.30 Lucky Lodge was another winning tip for Premium Tip Members doing it well at Newcastle and can race off a lower mark tonight as that was an apprentices race. The longer trip is no issue and neither Is the track and another big run is on. Mount Wellington is going very well here with 2 wins and a 2nd in his last 3 but does go up in the ratings and grade.
½ pt win Lucky lodge @ 5/1
7.00 Hard to be excited about the prospects of most of these and the double looks very much on for recent C&d winner Geizy Teizy just two pounds higher for a smart win and that was her first race here .
¾ pt win Geizy Teizy @ 2/1
