Selected Catterick – soft ground on this sharp and undulating track
1.45 A chance can be given to many and quite a few of these are proven over This tricky C&D and on soft ground . Made For all would do very well to double up under a very severe penalty and from a wide draw, unlikely to be able to dominate , and looks likely to struggle . All of Redrosezorro, Rebel Soldier Boy, The Big House and Bibbiboddibiddiboo are effective over C&D but preference is for the downgraded look Out Louis, a good 3rd last time and proven over this C&d. He is 1 from 1 in Class 5 , nicely drawn and is chanced on soft ground, but has won on good to soft, so worth a try. The in form Ghathanfar is not out of this despite the penalty . The likeable veteran Twin Appeal would do well getting involved from a wide draw and usually races on stiffer tracks nowadays .
½ pt win Look Out Louis @ 5/1
2.20 This is very open and I was going to be with Lion Tower down in the ratings from a good draw and Ok on soft, but the first time visor is a big negative for the top stable . Tadawol has claims and so does La voix Magique, despite the wide draw , but the nod goes to the lightly raced Soaring Star on a fair mark after some good runs in decent maiden company , and proven on the ground .
½ pt win Soaring star @ 9/2
3.20 PREMIUM RACE
3.50 The bookies pal, Vitare , still can’t nail one , despite finishing no worse than 4th in 6 tries this season , and was worried out of it by Ice Station Zebra last time at this trip , but does enjoy a huge weight pull , and very different ground today . What is Life is with a top stable and returns from a lengthy absence . Her only run was a decent effort and appeals at the odds .
¼ pt win What Is life @ 11/4
4.20 The grey Zebedee has a good record here and served notice last time that his turn is nor far away .He’s down to the same mark as when successful in this race last year, making all in the mud and is very well drawn to repeat the dose . Could well be away and gone .
½ pt win The grey Zebedee @ 5/1
5.20 Percy Prosecco won this last year on similar ground , but is much higher in the ratings this time and the likes of Snookered and Be perfect , who were close behind , have clear claims of getting revenge today . Be perfect comes out best at the weights, but this veteran is not as consistent as he was while Snookered really took off over hurdles last season , especially when the mud was flying and looks likely to be bang there again . George Mallory and Dance King are others with claims .
¼ pt ew Snookered @ 8/1
Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this slightly undulating , sharp in places with a long run in .
1.35 Could well be third time lucky for the ex-Irish tango echo Charlie after two decent efforts for his new stable, that of Dr Richard Newland . He’s been racing prominently but hasn’t been getting home over longer trips, so this could be his day as main rivals College Oak and Le Grand Rocher have a bit to prove on the ground and trip .
¾ pt win Tango Echo Charlie @ 7/2
2.10 Sangha River has looked good winning both starts this season after a lengthy break, and is odds on for the hat-trick , despite the double penalty . Check My Pulse has run well in both hurdles starts and looks a very safe ew play .
½ pt ew check My pulse @ 13/2
2.40 The in form pair of compadre and Vice Et Vertu are hard to split and neither have the greatest of win records .
¼ pt rev fc Compadre and Vice Et Vertu
3.10 This is highly competitive but the nod goes to the back to form Shantou Village after a much improved effort last time which came over C&D and took his record in Class 3 to a win and a place in just two tries and useful 5 pound claimer Millie Wonnacott takes the reins .
½ pt ew Shantou Village @ 13/2
3.40 PREMIUM RACE
4.10 Another very open handicap but the fav in petit Palais has a bit to prove at this longer trip . All of Storm home, Story of friends and Vancouver have clear claims but the nod goes to the consistent Red Royalist .
¼ pt win Red Royalist @ 10/3
4.40 admiral’s sunset doesn’t know how to run a bad race but wins are elusive . a deserved win could drop her way today in a winnable heat .
½ pt ew Admirals Sunset @ 6/1
5.10 The prolific hunter chaser Dido did well on his handicap debut off around this mark and will appreciate the slightly longer trip . Only concern is the second run back after a break .
½ pt win Dido
5.40 not a quality finale and happy to try the downgraded Day of Roses, well capable of landing this on his best form .
¼ pt ew Day Of roses @ 12/1
Selected Windsor- good to soft on this flat and galloping track, speed track
3.55 The best form is comfortably brought into the race by Prince of Bel air, a good 3rd in a Haydock maiden, which tend to be pretty good . He runs for a rookie trainer who had to £92,000 to keep him in the stable, often a very good sign . That figure is small fry considering that Fivethousandtoone cost almost £ ½ million , but as experience is a priceless commodity and few have a clear chance I’m with “ Will Smith”
¼ pt win Prince of Bel Air @ 3/1
4.30 Longlai has the best form but the drop in trio will test on this quick track , so happy to watch .
5.00 PREMIUM RACE
5.30 The free going We’re Reunited could take some catching on this track but preference for the in form Miss Thoughtful , capable of landing this after a good 2nd last time at this trip and mark .
¼ pt ew MissThoughtful @ 10/1
6.00 The ex-Irish Son and Sannie looked good when landing a big field handicap at Naas , but the 11 pound hit will surely test , especially on this quicker track returning from a break and his new stable doesn’t have a good record with new intakes. Well gone are the days when Tropics was winning Class 1 sprints , but this 12yo is not quite ready for retirement .He comes here on the back of a most solid 4th over C&D off around this mark and looks a lively longshot .
1/ 2pt ew Tropics @ 12/1
6.30 Ice Sprite is short priced fav after a good win last time but this is a deep race and not a good bet at short odds .
7.00 The famous colours of Anthony Oppenheimer are aboard domino Darling , who is 1 from 1, the victory coming last season in the Donny Mud, and could be anything . This is not a deep maiden and she’s not for me at odds on, but a must watch as she is bound to go up in grade soon .
7.30 Not a deep handicap and the back to form Ashazuri promises not to be far away .
½ pt ew Ashazuri @ 6/1
8.00 The fav and form horse is Mrs Benson, but she is a 24 race hardened maiden , so likely something will spoil her day again .
