Today's Fortune for a fiver
Close to a massive payday yesterday with 3 winners @ 6/4, 5/1 & 5/1 , other horse pulled up went lame !
6 50p doubles 4 25p trebles & 50p ew acca
Restless Endeavour @ 5/1
Lincoln Gamble 5.30 @ 9/2
Ubla 6.00 @ 7/1
Pull Harder Con 7.30 @ 13/8
Selected Bangor – soft ground on this flat and sharp track
12.30 Certainly worth chancing She’s A novelty having her first run over hurdles and the first for the prolific Fergal O ‘ Brien , who has a terrific record with new intakes and her last run on the flat was a very decent effort on heavy ground over a middle distance.
½ pt win She’s A novelty @ 7/1
1.35 PREMIUM RACE
2.05 This looks a match but as he’s proven both on the ground and the C&D , and comes here in good form, Grey Day should well have the edge over His dream .
½ pt win Grey Day @ 2/1
2.35 Few of these will be happy on the ground which offers another good opportunity for the long standing maiden Scatare , who is never far away but winless in 31 tries ! But every horse has his day .
¼ pt win Scatare @ 3/1
Selected Catterick- very soft ground on this undulating and sharp track
12.50 The two form horses are clearly Blind Beggar, who has form on good to soft and Ey up Its Maggie, first time on the mud. On soft ground here it’s better to be drawn high and this poor are both drawn low. Potential boilover
1.25 PREMIUM RACE
1.55 PREMIUM RACE
2.25 Restless endeavour won as she pleased over C&D last time on soft ground and again is favourably drawn high . The 6 pound hit will test but still ticks plenty of important boxes .
½ pt win Restless Endeavour @ 5/1
2.55 Deft is interesting up in trip for a strong Southern stable but not proven on the ground , but this wont take much winning .
¼ pt win Deft @ 2/1
3.35 The admirable Clearance goes for the treble but a few issues today, mark, trip and ground . Burriram is on a stiff enough mark but running well and is a real mudlark .
½ pt win Burriram @ 4/1
4.00 With Thanks is proven on the ground and will take a deal of beating . Model Guest remains a maiden after 16 tries !
¾ pt win With Thanks @ evens
4.35 Parys Mountain has a good record here and despite the penalty for a good win here last time, is fine on the ground and nicely draw. Redrosezorro always runs well here and no issues with the ground but stiff penalty in a tougher race.
¼ pt ew Parys Mountain @ 8/1
5.05 This will take little winning and a decent chance for the well handicapped Be Bold , no issues with the ground or track .
¼ pt win Be bold @ 7/1
Selected Yarmouth – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
3.20 Ajrad’s 2nd came in a race for newcomers so hard to be sure how strong the form is while Ridgeway Avenue ran respectably on debut at York in quite a deep maiden . There are also a handful of well bred newcomers from smart stables in famous colours .
3.55 Flirty Rascal ran well at Windsor last time which gives her strong claims in this. The Circus disappointed last time but it was down in trip at Catterick , not every horse’s cup of tea and too soon to write off . Beija Flor is interesting as this newcomer runs for William Haggas who’s had 2 winners from 3 newcomers here this season .
¼ pt win Beija Flor @ 9/1
5.00 This could be a strange race with an absence of early pace and if the jockeys have done their homework , something may get a soft lead and stay there but I’m sticking with the reliable and in form Roman Spinner , who has a good record here .
¼ pt ew Roman Spinner @ 7/1
5.30 The youngster Lincoln Gamble hasn’t had a great deal of racing and is 1 from 1 at this trip . He ran well last time out off his new mark down in trip and can land a winnable heat . C&D and ground appear ideal .
¾ pt win Lincoln Gamble @ 9/2
6.00 A very weak heat and few have showed any worthwhile form for some time. Ubla is one of the few in the field who’s actually won of late , this coming earlier this year in a Kempton handicap off a mark of 58, but is rated lower on turf and ran a good race 2nd race back from his break over C&d when 5th of 12, 2 lengths behind Velvet Vista, who’s never won a race , and is today a very healthy 8 pounds better off and strong claims in a weak race .
¾ pt win Ubla @ 7/1
7.00 Spanish Main is a regular here and comes into this in good form and unlikely to be far away again in a winnable heat .
¼ pt ew Spanish Main @ 5/1
7.30 The 4 timer seeking Pull Harder Con defied an unfavourable wide draw winning at Beverley last time and the 4 pound hot could have been harsher and a return to a speed track is no issue . Opposition is thin on the ground.
¾ pt win Pull Harder Con @ 13/8
