Selected Doncaster – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
12.15 The prolific National Anthem had a few questions to answer last time out returning from a break and switching to quick turf after some great runs on the Southwell fibresand , and was looking on a tough enough mark . He also had a tricky race make up for a front runner with other early birds in the race, but none of this stopped him with a most tenacious victory , landing a Class 3 sprint beating a couple of useful yardsticks . You can expect another determined run from the front and can defy the 5 pound hit . Abel Handy is dropping in the ratings and did well last time but it came over a longer trip and softer ground. His win record is a big worry as his form on quick ground .
½ pt win National Anthem @ 10/3
12.45 This has a most winnable look to it and despite his form figures not being encouraging, the well treated Harome has clear claims His comeback spin was a fair effort and last year ran some very big races in big fields off higher mark .and if he brings his A game will be hard to beat.
¾ pt win Harome @ 3/1
1.50 La Trinidad won well last time but the drop In trip, the switch to a speed track and a hefty penalty are all big concerns . This is not a deep race and I’m with the unexposed Kentucky Hardboot who did well on his first try for his new stable when giving the whole field a head start but when asked for his effort , cut through the pack like they were standing still . The 8 pound penalty is very stiff , but could be ahead of the game .
½ pt win Kentucky Hardboot @ 15/2
2.25 The form horse Double Martini wont be suited by the drop in trip which presents a decent opportunity for the lightly raced Serenading who was a close 4th on her recent comeback spin and unlikely to be far away in a modest event .
¼ ptew Serenading @ 7/1
2.55 Magical Morning was well backed to win well last time for his top stable but would do well to carry a penalty to success In what looks a deep maiden. Newcomer Hypnos has been well backed for the top stable .
3.25 This is very weak and the back to form Lacan is the short priced fav but makes little appeal at cramped odds given his modest record on turf .
3.55 This has a winnable look to it and the classy handicapper Harrovian will take some beating . the consistent Ironclad could find this speed track against him .
½ pt win Harrovian @ 2/1
4.30 A very winnable contest and the well treated Frimley garth showed up better last time and could run these down late on .
¼ pt win Framley Garth @ 5/1
5.05 Dubious Affair won really well at Yarmouth on quick ground on her first try at this trip and first time for her new good stable. She won as she felt like and this track should be fine and looks well capable of defying the 5 pound penalty .
¾ pt win Dubious Affair @ 2/1
Selected Tipperary – good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.30 An absolute crackerjack of a Grade 3 hurdle worth over £40,000 and a field full of strong contenders . At the weights , the classy Petit Moucher is the one to beat but wins have been hard to come by for some time . All of Aramon. Chosen Mate, david’s Charm , Early Doors, Hearts are Trumps , Ornua , Stratum and wonder Lash are very useful and all will be running big races but the odds I’ll be trying youngster A Wave of The Sea who looks overpriced for his chance .
¼ p tew A wave of the Sea @ 20/1
Selected Newmarket – good to firm on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
1.10 The drop in trip wont help track regular Colonel Frank and it could well be worth supporting the in form Hans solo Berger, 3 wins from his last 5 , his new mark looks within range and no issues with ground or C&D .
½ pt win Hans Solo Berger @ 6/1
1.40 The Tom Dascombe juveniles are going well and he brings debut winner Adday dream on the long trip form Cheshire , who won well on the Newcastle tapeta but the stable does well here with juveniles . Has a penalty to carry and some big stables run interesting newcomers .
2.10 Another 2yo race I’m happy to swerve with Bonnyrigg bringing good form to the table but up against some well bred ones from good stables.
2.45 Caspian Queen was desperately unlucky last time and off the same mark can gain compensation with the extra furlong in her favour .
¼ pt win Caspian Queen @ 11/4
3.15 The short priced fav is Evening Sun owned by Her Majesty but his good run came on deep ground and there are a couple here who could shake him up.
3.45 Isle of Wolves is a most reliable sort and comes here on the back of another good run . a deserved win should come his way today but this track could be an issue and his two main rivals have debuts for new stables. But still worth a play .
½ pt win Isle Of wolves @ 6/5
4.20 Bodyline ran well at Royal ascot but is a hold up type and this could be steadily raced and tactical. Billhilly won well first time at this trip and handicapping last time but it was on the all weather and the 7 pound penalty is stiff. Bondi sands could get the run of the race from the front but it’s a race I’m happy to swerve
Selected Curragh – good to firm on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
5.15 Bearberry did well on debut for her top stable and ran to a level of form good enough to land this, despite a wider draw than ideal.
¼ pt win Bearberry @ 4/1
5.45 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Lingfield – good to firm on this undulating and sharp track
5.00 A tricky sprint handicap but the fav in sampers Seven has a bit to prove with a stiff penalty and switching to quick turf . You can make a good case for most of the rest .
5.30 Locket runs for a good stable and in famous colours and brings the best form to the race . Well drawn and a very solid short priced fav
½ pt win Locket @ 10/11
6.00 Napping bounced back from a time in the wilderness with an unexpected win last time and if the same kind of mood can double up, but 6/4 plenty short .
6.30 PREMIUM RACE
7.00 Additional did really well on debut with a close 3rd in what looked a deep Yarmouth maiden. Well drawn and will be hard to beat .
