Selected Haydock- good to firm on this flat and galloping track.
12.30 A very winnable opener and unsurprising that Sir Michael Stoute’s well bred and lightly raced filly Anna of Lorraine is the short priced fav, but her recent comeback spin was only an Ok effort , making her mark harsh looking and that was only her 2nd ever run, the first being 18 months earlier, so not the profile of a sure thing . Kenstone’s last win was 2 years ago off a 10 pound higher mark than today and his recent comeback spin was fairly encouraging and has longshot appeal .
¼ pt ew Kenstone @ 16/1
1.30 Red Bond is lightly raced and has three wins in his last 7 starts , which have all come on the all weather but showed he is no slouch on turf with a highly creditable 5th of 22 at Ascot from a bad draw . He’s at his best when dominating and is well drawn today but may not get much peace up front today, but that’s worth risking at nice odds.
¼ pt win Red Bond @ 7/1
2.05 A Class 1 event for mares and the useful Veracious has a healthy advantage at the ratings and should be too good for these but I can pass at just even money .
2.40 Global Giant won really well last time and the double looks well and truly on in a winnable Group 3 .
½ pt win Global Giant @ 10/11
3.15 Sanserevo won well on debut but does have the dreaded penalty and switches from the all weather . The newcomer Alyaal is worth a dabble as his price rocketed from £100,000 u to £300,000 from yearling to 2yo, often a sign of a useful type .
¼ pt win Alyaal @ 7/2
4.25 This is most winnable and the short priced fav is hat-trick seeking Aristocratic Lady , but the 9 pound hit sets a stiff test .
4.55 A wide open finale but with so much early pace on , this could drop just right for the in form late playing Our Little Pony .
¼ pt win Our Little Pony @ 11/2
Selected Ascot- good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
1.15 Jadwal improved significantly on just an OK debut with a smart win last time and is the fav today, but Et Tu Brute was just two lengths behind and enjoys a healthy 8 pound pull, so worth an interest .
¼ pt win Et Tu Brute @ 9/1
1.50 PREMIUM RACE
2.25 The late playing Kasbaan has held his form pretty well of his new mark and gets the nod In a tricky heat .
¼ pt win Kasbaan @ 11/2
3.00 The well treated Kaloor has hinted that this longer trip would suit and gets the nod in another tricky heat .
¼ pt win Kaloor @ 9/2
3.35 PREMIUM RACE
4.45 Blue De Vega and Han Solo Berger fought out the finish in a decent Newmarket handicap recently and despite both being nudged up the weights, they still look the pair to concentrate upon as Whelan’s Way would do well to get involved up in the ratings, down in trip and on quicker ground and the admirable Bay Watch now on a tough mark for his 4 timer bid .
¼ pt rev fc Blue De Vega - Han Solo Berger
Selected Newmarket – good to firm on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
1.40 All of these make their debuts but on what we know arion Fox’s value soared from £120,000 up to £300,000 from foal to yearling , so may be forward enough to show it’s money well spent .
¼ pt win Arion Fox @ 9/2
2.50 This is a wide open small field nursery with a short priced fav in Aesthete , but is only one of a bunch with a chance. The nod goes to the in form thank You Next , who looks to be crying out for this longer trip .
¼ pt win thank You Next @ 4/1
3.20 PREMIUM RACE
4.00This looks very winnable and understandable that hat-trick seeker Al Rufaa is a short priced fav , but does have a very hefty 12 pound penalty .
4.35 Evening Sun held every chance when only 3rd off this mark lat time so preference is for Laser Show after a decent comeback spin last time .
¼ pt win Laser Show @ 11/2
5.10 Cognac is hard to knock and is on a workable mark and chanced going up in trip.
¼ pt win Cognac @ 5/2
No advice for Ireland
Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this mostly sharp track with a long galloping straight
4.30 Enemy Coast Ahead has won both starts with ease this season and despite the double penalty, this wont take much winning and if anything , the longer trip a bonus.
¾ pt win Enemy Coast Ahead @ 11/10
5.00 Poker School responded well to the drop in the ratings with a most solid 2nd on his comeback spin and this longer trip no issue, which can’t be said regarding the fav Yccs portocerro .
½ pt win Poker School @7/2
6.00 Mister universe was a ready winner over C&d on his comeback spin . his first try at this trip and could well double up as he’s unexposed at the distance .
½ pt win Mister universe @ 9/2
6.30 a weak contest and the two clear form horses are the hold up pair in The Boola Bee and Istimraar , who despite being both penalised , are hard to get away from , but hard to split .
¼ pt rev fc The Boola Bee – Istimraar
7.30 Captain Tom Cat sluiced in over C&d last time and the double looks well and truly on in a weak event .
¼ pt ew Captain Tom cat @ 4/5
8.00 JohnConstable finally responded to the handicapper’s leniency last time with a much improved run when 2nd, but bumped up 3 pounds again and his last win came over 3 years ago . Tegany did well in a hot contest last time but preference is for Percy , a good 2nd to esprit De Baileys last time and weighted for revenge . Nice ew play .
¼ pt ew Percy @ 8/1
8.30 The Fergal O’Brien stable continues to bang in the winners and does particularly well with new intakes . Hello Fellas has his first run for the stable but does return from a lengthy break, but first time back is the time to catch absentees .
¼ pt win Hello Fellas @ 5/1
