3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Glory Fighter 3.40 @ 9/4
Mahaaby 4.20 @ 5/1
Mr Orange 1.45 @ 9/2
Selected Ponty – good to firm on this undulating ,galloping and stiff track
12.15 Ancient Times didn’t come cheap and did well on debut when only 3rd of 4 but both those ahead have won since , and the way he was finishing suggests this stiffer track will really suit for a stable that does well here. Secret Handsheikh won well last time but does carry the dreaded penalty.
3/4 pt win Ancient Times @ 15/8
12.45 The bookies are split over Kingsmania and Meu amor , who both ran well on debut but so did Keeping secrets , worth a play at much longer odds .
¼ pt ew Keeping secrets @ 7/1
1.15 PREMIUM RACE
1.45 Mr Orange is a regular here and responded well to the drop in the ratings and grade with a staying on 3rd over C&d last time and in a lesser grade ,could nail these late on .
½ pt win Mr orange @ 5/2
2.20 This is very open and chancing the consistent if luckless Phuket Power down in trip as he’s well drawn to get a handy pitch and could take some catching if managing to lead .
¼ pt win Phuket Power @ 11/2
2.50 On the ratings, Shades of blue should be too good for these as she has at least 7 pounds in hand and was a close 2nd in this last year , running to her mark , but her draw could have been kinder , the jockey booking could have been more positive and first time visor not a positive for the top stable, but saying that , hard to get away from at nice odds.
¼ pt win Shades Of blue @ 3/1
3.20 Revolver is a perfect 5 from 5 from this season and hasn’t been hard pressed to keep that winning run going. The 6 timer beckons but he is 4/6.
3.50 Not a deep maiden and a clear chance for Southern raider Tawreed after a good debut at Yarmouth .
½ pt win Tawreed @ 7/4
Selected Curragh- good ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
1.00Charterhouse comes here on the back of an excellent 4th in a Group 3 at Leopardstown and will be very hard to beat in this big field maiden , but priced accordingly at evens.
1.30 Talacre is the only one with experience and should put it to use , but again only evens .
2.00 The front running frenetic has the best form comfortably and will be hard to reel in .
½ pt treble- Charterhouse, Talacre, frenetic – pays over 5/1
2.30 The front running Delphi is on the up and can land the 4 timer Search for a song has still not recaptured last year’s useful form .
½ pt win Delphi @ 2/1
3.30 The short priced fav is Gold Maze who has the best form and will appreciate the big drop in grade, but has been vey unlucky in the draw . Avarice has done little wrong of late, runner up in his last three., running to a decent level and looks a nice ew play .
½ pt ew Avarice @ 7/1
Selected Chester – good to soft on this flat and very sharp track where low numbers in the draw have an advantage .
1.40 Tricky opener as the form brought to the table by both Shem and Haseef is just Ok and a both Elland Road Boy and Sands in Time are newcomers to note .
2,10 A tougher task for recent track winner Cuban Breeze under a penalty and up in grade . Tough task also for 4 timer seeking Hot Scoop from the worst of the draw I give the nod to the consistent Bergerac at the odds, but both Gumdrop and Merry secret have clear claims .
¼ pt win Bergerac @ 7/1
2.40 Understandable that Chase The dollar is a warm order off a good mark on his nursery debut .
½ pt win Chase The Dollar @ 10/11
3.10 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 Glory Fighter bounced back to form last time and still well weighted on old form He has a good race make up with a host of front runners , most of which are on testing marks and not hard seeing him biding his time and running these down late on.
¾ pt win Glory Fighter @ 5/2
4.10 Another sprint with plenty of early pace but a big ask for the in form Militia now on a testing mark on drying ground and operating from a bad draw . Mutabahhy is holding his form well and can nail these late on .
½ pt win Mutabaahy @ 5/1
4.40 PREMIUM RACE
5.10 The odds on fav is Midraar but stamina for this longer trip not copper bottomed . A nice race to leave alone .
5.40 A wide open finale but the well drawn and consistent Donnchies Girl remains on a good mark , this is her trip , and wont be far away again .
¼ pt ew Donnachies Girl @ 7/1
Selected Lingfield – first 3 races polytrack, remainder turf . Turf track sharp and undulating
4.25 Pearl Beach came into her last race with very strong ew claims and landed the bets for My Premium Tip Members at 10/1 by a long looking 5 lengths. I expected her to run well and the margin of victory was a surprise and the race did fall apart off a strong pace and she benefitted from a patient ride, picking up the pieces. The 6 pound penalty could have been harsher and is respected as that was her first try over C&d, which suited very well. Evaporust is rarely far away and that was the case behind Pearl Beach last time and looks a solid ew play .
¼ pt ew Evaporust @ 6/1
4.55 The three to concentrate upon here are the fav Caledonian Crusade , who remains a maide but is slightly better handicapped than the dangers in sandy Steve and Caen Na Coilee, who gets the nod after an improved run at this trip on this surface last time .
¼ pt ew Caen Na Coille @ 15/2
5.25 A very weak low grade affair and the clear form horse is the consistent Cristal Pallas Cat, who has a tricky draw tonight, but if able to dominate can’t see any of these picking him up.
½ pt win Cristal Pallas Cat @ 7/4
5.55 finding it hard to get excited about the prospects of short priced fav Lost in Space , one good effort and two modest ones , and the form of his 2nd hasn’t been franked . Just Fine runs for Her Majesty on his debut and has a Derby entry and worth a dabble .
¼ pt win Just Fine @ 7/2
6.25 Alpine Spring is well weighted on the strength of her good 2nd last time and is the one to beat.
½ pt win Alpine Spring @ 2/1
6.55 The short priced fav is Late Arrival but he’s 4 pounds higher for a 2nd on polytrack and the draw could have been kinder . One Step Further has an even worse draw but did well in his first handicap last time and could well land a modest heat .
¼ pt win One Step Beyond @ 13/2
7.25 A short priced fav in Raaed who rings good form to the table but this is the fastest ground he’s ever faced . Purple Power did well last time at this trip on quick turf and a nice ew play .
¼ pt ew Purple Prince @ 9/1
Selected Chepstow god to firm on this undulating , galloping and quite stiff track
4.35 Ocean Star is the clear form horse but I wont be on at just even money .
5.05 Bobby on the Beat has run well in all three starts and a deserved win is on the cards . The drop in trip wont help Nastase and his form lines are inconclusive .
¾ pt win Bobby on The beat @ 4/5
5.35 A very weak low grade event and understandable that youngster Some Nightmare is a warm order and should prevail .
½ pt win Some Nightmare @ 13/8
6.05 Princely nailed a deserved and much overdue win at his beloved Bath last time and he’s no slouch here, but could struggle with the rise in the ratings and grade . Gambon is seriously knocking at the door and it should open today . Runs this track well .
½ pt win Gambon @ 2/1
7.05 Zapper Cass is in good form and could take some catching from the front .
½ pt win Zapper Cass @ 5/2
7.35 A chance can be given to many and the in form Agent Gibbs has as good a chance as the market fancies , and he’s long odds ,
¼ pt ew Agent Gibbs @ 14/1
8.05 Another tricky event but happy to be with the downgraded Alexanderthegreat, especially as this longer trip should help .
¼ pt ew Alexanderthegreat @ 10/1
No advice from Tramore
