Quanah 12.45 @ 5/2
Selected Lingfield- all weather – polytrack
12.00 It’s a weak handicap and a good chance for the well drawn Solar Park whose recent unlucky 3rd over C&D is the standout piece of form. Roundabout Magic goes well here but this hold up type could struggle to get competitive from the worst of the draw.
½ pt win Solar Park @ 9/4
2.05 Another weak handicap sprint and a clear chance for the down in grade Champagne Supanova and happy with a modest play .
¼ pt win Champagne Supanova @ 2/1
2.35 Veteran Pettochside showed he’s still capable of wins a few starts back over C&D when disputing a strong pace from a poor draw and kept it going all the way to be a close 2nd , dead heating with Equipped , who is 2nd fav today , but the tip enjoys a 2 pound pull !
¼ pt ew Pettochside @ 18/1
Selected Hamilton – good to soft on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
12.45 Quanah is very hard to knock and has won four times in his last 6 starts and took his record here to 2 from 3 last time with a good win over C&d on easy ground beating a couple of reliable yardsticks . The 3 pound hit could have been worse and another win looks on . The back to form Airglow could struggle down in trip .
¾ pt win Quanah @ 5/2
1.20 PREMIUM RACE
1.55 A couple of last time wide margin winners here in Ey up Its mick and Dirchill , who are both heavily penalised but the former is relatively unexposed while Dirchill landed a very weak heat and the 10 pound is a huge tester . Canford’s joy ran well over C&D in a better race than this and is preferred .
¼ pt win Canford’s Joy @ 7/2
2.25 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Bangor – good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.10 Hiconic won well last time at Newton Abbot, but it looked a weak heat and she is penalised . She was rated only 57 on the flat while Soldier on Parade was rated a fair 67 and comes here in OK form from the flat . Should be too good for these.
½ pt win Soldier on Parade @ 2/1
2.45 This looks a match between the consistent but very hard to win with stop The World and the Paul Nicholls trained soldier of Love who took an unlucky fall when last seen and just about worth a play at the odds.
½ pt win Soldier of Love @ 6/4
3.45 A decent Class 3 event for the track and a good opportunity for the useful Some day Soon , going handicapping for the first time on a very fair mark . He was 4 from 4 last Summer in novice hurdles , doing very well overcoming hefty penalties and was then stepped up in trip and grade and was far from disgraced with 2 big runs in Grade 2 events , behind some useful performers . This C&d should be fine and goes well fresh , just a bit worried about the good stable’s poor record here .
½ pt win Some Day Soon @10/3
Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
2.30 Hyde park Barracks runs in famous colours and for Aiden O’Brien , but looks limited but from the best of the draw could have these on the stretch from the front .
¼ pt win Hyde Park Barracks @ 10/3
4.00 PREMIUM RACE
5.00 Cache queen is a reliable soul who comes into this in her usual consistent form and this well drawn mare is effective over C&d.
¼ pt win cache Queen @ 9/4
5.30 A group 3 and the odds on fav is the hard to win with Monarch of Egypt who keeps very good company but does have a patchy profile and not one to trust for an odds on plunge . The lightly raced Dalvey beat a big field in style at Gowran Park in just his 2nd start and backed that up with a good run when a close 4th in a Leopardstown Group 3, running on really well , giving the impression this longer trip is a smart move.
½ pt win Dalvey @ 8/1
Selected Cork – good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.40 Eastern Voice has run well in all three starts and looks a very solid fav to nail a deserved win .
¾ pt win Eastern Voice @ 11/8
3.40 Only five go and with both Chief Little hawk and Dickiedora sure to try and make all, understandable the bookies make grammata the fav after coming off the pace to be a good 7th at Royal ascot, but not for me at short odds.
4.10 This looks very much a match between Monument Valley and Taramansour , who are very hard to split and looks a toss up .
4.40 A competitive event with most of these coming into it in good shape. I give the nod to Estepona Sun after a promising comeback spin gives him the edge at the weights .
¼ pt win Estepona sun@ 5/1
