Selected Beverley – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
12.00 Navajo Spring was a costly failure over C&D last time after a good debut on the all weather, which she’s bred for, so from a tricky draw, may disappoint again . Too many contenders in this .
12.35 A massive field for this low grade sprint but the vast majority have little to recommend them . The Grey Bay has hit the frame in both runs this season, including over C&D. He’s been lucky in the draw and likely to be given a prominent ride and can justify cramped odds. Quicker ground could be an issue but hard to see what can spoil his day . Hello Girl is running Ok but has the worst of the draw.
½ pt win The grey Bay @ 2/1
1.10 all of these youngsters are going up markedly in trip so hard to be sure in this .
2.40 The consistent Beanski is a short priced fav and looks sure to be involved but I prefer the front running and determined Saisons D’or .

4.10 the majority of these 3yos are going up in trip so hard to balance the factors.

Selected Chepstow- good ground on this undulating , galloping and quite stiff track
12.15 A low grade sprint and even though Lady Florence holds claims after a recent 2nd over C&d, she had the run of the race that day from the front which is unlikely today with both the in form pair of Cool Strutter and David’s Beauty both known for going with the pace and both effective over C&D . They are both on testing enough marks but not by much and look very likely to fight out the finish .
¼ pt rev fc Cool Strutter- Davids Beauty
1.20 This is wide open but the well treated veteran KInglami goes well over C&D and ran well enough here last time to be given a squeak.
¼ pt ew Kinglami @ 11/1
1.50 In the Cove is the even money fav to double up on a recent C&D win, but the penalty and quicker ground not at all in his favour. Blessed Empress is treated well enough to go well but I prefer a play on the in form Crimson Princess who could appreciate this longer trip . Nice longshot .
¼ pt ew Crimson Princess @ 20/1
2.20 Queen of Silca rattled off a recent hat-trick and was far from disgraced last time in much stronger company off her new mark and could still be good enough .
¼ pt win Queen of Silca @ 7/2
2.50 Rosa Gold has won her last two with ease and the 6 pound penalty could have been harsher . The longer trip looks within range but just a small play .
¼ pt win Rosa Gold @ 7/4

Selected Haydock – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
4.25 The kind of race I like , a big field handicap but I can find more negatives than positives for all the runners, so happy to let it go .
4.55 Imperial Force is a warm order to land this after two good runs, the latest a great 3rd at Royal Ascot . No issues with the trip or ground but has only ever run on a stiff track and I wouldn’t like to play at odds on first time on a speed track . Both Cairn Island and Solent Gateway demand much respect .
5.25 This has a winnable look to it and interesting that the reliable Treacherous takes his chance despite being withdrawn last week due to soft ground ! A good pace is on the cards which will aid the chance of the in form and strong finishing Buccaneers Vault , especially with Oisin Murphy riding .Best bet on the card .
1/ 2 pt ew Bucaneers Vault @ 9/1
5.55 Vert tricky as all of these young stayers are unexposed .
6.25 It’s very hard to knock Trueshan , 4 wins and a 2nd last year from just 5 starts and a good effort this season when 4th in listed Company on ground quick enough . Looks the likely winner , but odds short enough .
¼ pt win trueshan @ 6/4
6.55 I was very much with the front running Mubtasim last time but James Doyle had a rush of blood to the head and did far too much too early and tied up late on. He could slip the field tonight but has some useful types in the field entitle to be bang there off their ratings and at their best trip and ground . I give the nod to the useful and in form D’Bai with Happy power a big danger and Snazzy Jazzy hard to ignore .
¼ pt win d’Bai @ 5/2
7.25 Lawaheed is odds on to land this but drops in trip and new to soft ground. Noble Masquerade did well on his debut but also on good ground .
7.55 Cold front has been 2nd in all 3 runs which can be offputting as it suggests hard to win with , but he has been unlucky in all 3 starts. Just 1 run last year when short in the market and just touched off in a field of 20! And this year bumped into Merass, who landed a handicap recently with ease off a lofty mark of 97 and last time losing little in defeat behind a highly promising Godolphin youngster . He’s likely to make all and trip, track, and ground all fine and looks a very solid play for big hitters. The godolphin newcomer future King has been supported but the stable’s record here with newcomers is not good and would need to run to a very good level to beat the tip who is rated 88 ! Raaed was unfancied on debut over C&D but did well to run 3rd in the mud, but the ground is drying and needs to find a lot more on form .
¾ pt win Cold Front @ evens

Selected Leicester - good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
4.35 This looks an absolute match between Blazing Hot and musicality who both bring good form to the table but both would be happier over an extra furlong.The latter was a good 2nd here on debut on fast ground , but impossible to be sure which of the pair will get the nod down in trip and they are evens joint favs .
5.00 despite the big field , few can be seriously considered .Rock warbler was a solid 3rd over C&d two starts back and a reproduction sees him in the mix .
¼ pt ew Rock Warbler @ 10/1
5.35 Raatea is a youngster on the up and lost nothing when narrowly beaten last time off around this mark, but evens too short .
6.05 It should be Pretty Pickle’s day but bot for me at odds on despite the weak field .
6.35 There was money for Cloud drift last time and those in the know were unlucky not to collect as he came from a mile back to be beaten in a bunched finish . He may not have a strong pace to aim at tonight and the first time blinkers a concern , but has found a bit if a soft race .
¼ pt win Cloud drift @ 7/4
7.05 The drying ground and the penalty wont help Liam’s Lass, but not ruled out in a weak event . Burguillos comes here in good form but the nod goes to Blairlogie after two good recent efforts over C&D .
¼ pt win blairlogie @ 4/1
