Selected Ayr- soft ground on this flat and galloping track
12.20 The hat-trick seeking Sambuca Spirit is the short priced fav but not for me with a stiff penalty and trying softer ground . The two other recent winners in Montaylan and Lyons Lane also have stiff penalties , making their tasks difficult . star Citizen was a shock but clever winner over C&D a few starts back beating a reliable yardstick but failed to follow that up on quicker round next time. He’s only 4 pounds higher for the win , which looks within his range.The grey Zebedee is another mud lover on a decent mark and worth a saver .
½ pt ew Star Citizen @ 10/1 ¼ p tew The grey Zebedee @ 11/1 ¼ pt rev fc
1.30 Sienna Dream ran well last time over C&D in the mud to give high hopes of another win . Prissy Missy did well to beat Highland Acclaim from a bad draw last time and not out of this .
¼ pt win Sienna dream @ 4/1
2.00 The consistent Mr Wagyu is now on a testing mark and form on soft ground is a horror story . Both Ventura express and Dublin Rocker are lightly raced and in form youngsters , running for good stables in famous colours, but both unproven on soft turf . The lightly raced Seemybabyjive went close here in the mud last time and the longer trip looks within her grasp . Somekindofsuperstar also has claims on a good recent here on easy ground .
¼ pt ew each & ¼ pt rev fv Seemybabyjive 15/2 Somekindofsuperstar 16/1
2.30 Entrancing ran well last time on soft ground but the 5 pound hit will take some overcoming . Dutch Decoy won well on his first stat for Mark Johnston , but the switch from the all weather a worry . Hajjam is 2 from 2 here and relishes soft ground so despite his long losing run is a player today as is Triple Distilled now on his preferred soft ground .
¼ p tew each & ¼ pt rev fc Hajjam @ 7/1 triple Distilled @ 12/1
3.30 The front running Dark Lochnagar is down to a good mark and will relish the soft ground
¼ pt ew dark Lochnagar @ 15/2
Selected Goodwood – good ground on this undulating , sharp and tricky track .
1.10 This has a winnable look to it and despite a rare poor run last time, Hateya is worth forgiving , especially at long odds. She did little wrong when a close 4th at Newmarket off this mark and has run really well in this race twice before . Nicely drawn and capable of a shock win .
½ pt ew Hateya @ 33/1
1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.15 The short priced fav is Aiden O’Brien’s Battleground , a ready winner on soft ground at Royal Ascot, but there are a few in the field who can match that level of form Painless Potter has been crying out for a longer trip and worth a dabble .
¼ pt ew Painless Potter @ 12/1
2.45 A crackerjack of a Group 2 with all of D’Bai, Space Blues and Safe Voyage all in top form and closely matched but track form counts for plenty here and we have Duke Of Hazard who is 3 from 3 here against Sir Dancelot , who’s won this race twice before and looks as if he’s been prepared for this .
¼ pt win Sir Dancelot @ 6/1
3.15 The very wonderful Strdavarius is the best stayer in the world and won this last year . Youngster Santiago could give him a fright , but still has a mountain to climb on official ratings .
¾ pt win Stradavarius @ 4/7
3.45 PREMIUM RACE
4.20 Majd al arab showed plenty of dash last time and could be hard to catch on this quick circuit.
¼ pt win Majd Al Arab @ 9/2
Selected Yarmouth – good to firm on this flat and galloping track.
4.30 It wasn’t the greatest race ever when Capla Huntress won over C&D with the very hard to win with Voi back in 3rd . Clear preference is for the in form Alvaro who followed up a good win on the al weather with a good 2nd on turf . The in form pair if Fume and Red Archangel both have a bit to prove switching to quick turf .
½ pt win Alvaro @ 10/3
5.00 PREMIUM RACE
5.30 Night Moment struggled under a penalty last time and has to concede weight to a couple who both showed promise on debut but as Maker of Light’s run came on turf , give him the nod over Alpine Strings in a race where few count .
¼ pt win maker of Light @ 3/1
7.00 The lightly raced kylla Looks wasn’t far behind the In form Nibra shadow last time and with a pull in the weights, makes ew appeal in a modest heat . Camachess has been well punted today but needs to improve significantly on her turf form .
¼ pt ew Kylla Look @ 8/1
8.30 Michael’s Choice is in top form and despite having a preference for a stiffer track, appeals at the odds .
¼ pt win Michael’s Choice @ 5/1
Selected Galway – soft ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
6.15 PREMIUM RACE
6.45 A wide open handicap and I’m with a longshot in the mud loving Onlyhuman who has showed enough off this mark to get involved at long odds .
¼ pt ew Onlyhuman @ 20/1
7.45 We’ll go Again got the better of Plum Perfect on testing ground but both have been shoved up the weights since , but with the ground favouring this pair , more than most , trying a fc . Both are good odds.
