Ey it up Mick 1.30 @ 5/4
Lady Celia 1.00 9/4
Captain Rom Cat 12.15 evens
Selected Uttoxeter- good ground on this quite sharp and undulating track with a galloping straight
12.15 Captain Tom Cat did little wrong chasing home a promising one at Southwell and compensation looks likely . His in form stable has a terrific record here .
¾ pt win Captain Tom Cat @ evens
12.45 Balagan was a shock winner at Southwell but did it well and may be up to carrying the penalty . The odds on fav is Famous response , a winning pointer , who was odds on for his hurdles debut but fell after making a number of mistakes. Nativegetaway is very hard to win with and the switch to hurdles looks a desperate move .
1.15 Oxwich Bay had been running pretty well but wins were hard to come by but got it right last time at Newton Abbot and his style of running should be suited to this tricky track . The 7 pound hit is unwelcome but could get away with it in a weak heat where only Arthur’s Sixpence and Zen Master offer any threat .
1.45 Little Stevie is a reliable type who deserves to notch a win but may have to wait a bit longer with youngster Fort De L’Ocean preferred .He ran well last year off higher marks and wasn’t disgraced on his comeback spin when a running on 5th in a Class 3 Southwell handicap .
½ pt win Fort De L’Ocean @ 3/1
2.15 not for the first time was Peter the Mayo Man well backed off his very good mark, but he does continue to disappoint . Both esprit De Baileys and Get Back get Back have good enough form in the book to fight this one out and slight preference to the former .
¼ pt win Esprit De Baileys @ 13/2
2.45 I was with Kings temptation when he was a ready winner here last time but the 7 pound hit wont help and another race I’d rather just watch .
3.15 Not a deep race and I’m with handicap newcomer innerpickle who ran well enough in novice events to be a force off this mark , but this is the fastest ground he’s faced.
¼ pt win Innerpickle @ 7/2
3.50 Present Chief did well when last seen but so did Goldrapper and as this one has a good record running fresh , gets the nod at nice odds.
¼ pt ew Goldrapper @ 10/1
4.25 A bumper to end the card and plenty of big stables have runners. I’m trying one with experience in Pepite De Belle who has her first run for the top stable of Dan Skelton and first time wind op, hood and tongue tie all positives for the stable .
¼ pt win Pepite De Belle @ 9/1
Selected Hamilton – good ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
1.00Lady Celia was a good winner over C&D in the mud and followed that up with a good effort at Ayr off this mark on faster ground and another win likely today .
¾ pt win Lady Celia @ 9/4
1,30 Eye It Up Mick goes for a quick hat-trick and is looking way ahead of the game .
½ pt win Eye It up Mick @ 5/4
2.00 A good quality sprint and I’m with last year’s winner Air Raid, a cosy victor then and only 2 pounds higher .
¼ pt win Air Raid @ 9/2
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.00 a valuable listed event and 4 of these are closely matched at the weights but Arrow Of Gold is 1 from 1 and did it easily , so not ruled out despite a lot to do on the book . the nod goes to the consistent Subjective as tritonic has a bit to prove at the trip .
¼ pt win Subjective @ 2/1
3.30 This has a most winnable look to it as the consistent fav Old Harbour is now on a tough mark . Kuwiait Shield has showed enough to be given a squeak.
¼ pt win Kuwait Shield @ 13/2
4.00 An open finale and all of the youngsters in Got The T Shirt, Big City and Sir havelock tick plenty of boxes but the nod goes to the reliable C&D specialist and in form retirement Beckons
¼ p tew Retirement Beckons @ 6/1
No advice for Leopardstown
Selected Sandown – good ground on this stiff and galloping track.
4.20 PREMIUM RACE
4.55 This has a winnable look to it and despite being landed with the worst of the draw , the well treated Konchek is preferred . Was unlucky last time dropped in grade when fluffing the start but showed lots of zip to take them along . There’s little early pace In this and could make all.
¼ pt win Konchek @3/1
5.25 After an impressive winning debut , Eye Of Heaven was a short priced fav at Royal ascot , but didn’t run to his best on the soft ground,and can get back on track tonight .
½ pt win eye Of Heaven @ 10/11
6.00 Both desert Vision and greycious Girl have decent all weather form but Jazz’o ‘s good debut run came on turf and is the likely winner , but at around evens , I can afford to watch .
6.30 Knight Salute is now a 1/3 fav due to the defection of Saeiqa and despite his good debut 2nd coming on the all weather , switch to turf should not be an issue .
7.00 Parikarma comes into this in good form and ticks many boxes except for the draw , and very hard winning here from a draw as high as this . The in form Wilfy could struggle up in the trip while Cesifire is harshly penalised for an all the way win on the all weather while Rains of Castermere has also been held off this new mark of late. Kentucky Hardboot won well on his comeback spin and came from a long way back to be a distant 2nd off this mark in a big field Donny handicap. The 3rd horse has run well since and from a good draw , could be the solution .
¼ pt ew Kentucky Hardboot @ 12/1
7.30 PREMIUM RACE
8.00 An open finale but concerned regarding the fancied High wells second run back after a long absence . Peckinpah has been given a chance by the handicapper and his stable does well putting runners markedly up in trip .
¼ pt win Peckinpah @ 11/2
