Selected Bath – good to firm on this sharp but stiff track
1.00A tough task for recent winner Kool Moe dee , up in the ratings , down in trip and switching from fibresand . One Day is proven over C&D and quick ground and on a workable mark. Virginia Plain has clear claims while Four adday is not out of an open event .
¼ pt win One Day @ 3/1
2.10 for Richard has a bit to prove under a penalty and on quicker ground . Very few of these are shaping up well at all but Brown eyes Blue is an exception and comes here on the back of two most reasonable efforts on quick turf, at this trip and mark and could surprise .
¼ pt ew Brown Eyes Blue @ 14/1
2.45 Rare Glen struggled off this mark last time and the faster ground is no help. Red Gunner comes here on the back of a good effort over C&D last time , but consistency not a strong point .
¼ pt ew Red Gunner @ 13/2
3.15 Quite a few in form types in this but the ones to concentrate upon are the younger horses in Sun Tide , first time in a handicap, on a fair mark , runs in the Frankel colours, but goes up in trip , Willi Nilly , a hat-trick seeker , but on a stiff mark and another going up In trip . Preference is for the ultra reliable motamayiz . who is 2 from 2 at this track and despite the present mark, can run these down late on .
½ pt ew Motamayiz @ 4/1
3.45 The consistent Alba de Sole runs this C&d really well and deserves a win for his recent efforts. Draw has been unkind, but still likely to be bang there .
¼ pt ew Alba De Sole @ 6/1
Selected Longchamp – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.00An open group 3 sprint but always worth giving consideration to anything crossing The English Channel , and Lady In France has every chance at the weights and comes here in top form.
1/ 2 pt win Lady In France @ 5/1
2.55 An absolutely red hot Group 1 and the surprise Epsom derby winner in Serpentine is the fav to show that win was no fluke . He did receive a very enterprising ride that day and was given plenty of rope , so it’s the acid test today with other prominent racers in the field. It’s very hard to knock the consistent highland Chief who looks a very lively longshot as he’s bang there at the ratings .
¼ pt ew Highland chief @ 12/1
3.35 There is an odds on fav in the progressive Raabihah , but the level of her form is either on a par or below some of these useful fillies and she also goes up in trip .The Irish pair of Tarnama and Even So come here with high hopes but the nod goes to the highest rated in the race, Dame Maliot , who runs in famous colours and Dettori rides
¼ pt ew Dame Malliot @ 12/1
4.10 So far I’ve been with the English raiders, which statistically , is a smart move, but I’m with the home team in this. The incredibly wonderful Stradivarius is the best stayer in the world but this trip is mighty short for him and was behind last year’s Epsom Derby winner last time he tried this trip . Way To Paris is in top form and has the form to come late and fast for the win.
½ pt win way To Paris @ 9/2
4.45 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
1.15 After a very impressive debut , the first day after Lockdowheels hawn , Eye of Heaven looked every inch a top 2yo, but the wheels have severely dropped off since . He’s had a 2 months break but still has plenty to prove . The likely winner is the expensive Asadjumeira after a big run on turf last time but the pedigree is shouting out all weather , so I can pass at short odds.
1.45 Warren house just got the better of areehaa on debut but is 7 pounds worse off and her rival has a very taking all weather pedigree . Newcomer Iris Budd would have to be pretty good to win first time out .
½ pt win Areehaa @ 5/4
2.20 It was the greatest race which Laser Show won last time so the 8 pound hit is a likely stopper . The drop in trip wont help fiji while the longer trip is a worry for Arbalet. Vale Of Kent has struggled of late , so would rather just watch him for now. Oh this Is Us is running Ok, is a C&d winner and dropped to a good mark, Gets the nod .
¼ pt win On This Is Us @ 9/2
2.55 The very wonderful veteran Watchable comes here on the back of a smart win here , but the longer trip and penalty makes it tough , but he’ll be trying . Desert Doctor returns from a break so may just need this but woven bounced bak to form last time and has clear claims today . The nod goes to the Classy Raucous after an encouraging comeback spin recently .
¼ pt win Raucous @ 7/2
3.25 A tough task for both Aljari and Sanaadh , both penalised and both successful last time on the Newcastle tapeta , a very different test from today .the consistent Cry Hsvoc has a bit more to do with a 4 pound penalty for only coming 2nd over C&D so the verdict goes to the useful Fleeting Prince after two big runs on turf of late off this mark and proven on synthetics .
½ pt win Fleeting Prince @ 4/1
3.55 A very weak heat and the well drawn front running Nat Love has the form to make all .
¼ pt win Nat Love @ 4/1
Chelmsford City placepot
I’m giving the Wolver card the swerve , nothing worth backing at the odds .
Selected The Curragh – good to soft on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
2.00 It’s always worth noting anything which crosses The Irish Sea, and there are 5 English raiders, the probable pick is the back to form Mr Lupton , a top sprinter in his day , but wins hard to come by nowadays . The likely pacesetter is the in form Royal Canford, who is drawn 1, so the far side may have the call today . Blairmayne has 2 wins and 9 places from 17 tries here and comes here in his usual good form. Drawn low and wont be far away .
¼ pt ew Blairmayne @ 20/1
2.35 PREMIUM RACE
3.10 A very open Group 1 sprint , which is a step up in grade for the majority . There are 8 English raiders and the useful Que Amoro is the likely pacesetter , but could be vulnerable in the latter stages on this stiff finish . A’ ali won over C&d recently and this hold up type just got the better of the prolific Make a Challenge, but this one has hopes of revenge with a 3 pound pull for the narrow defeat. His winning spree began just over a year ago off a lowly mark of 68 and runs to his level of 112 frequently . In 8 runs here he has 5 wins and 2 places !! he comes late and fast and is most determined in the finish .
½ pt ew Make A Challenge @ 5/1
3.40 Pretty Gorgeous is going to be hard to beat but not for me at 5/4
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.40 The English raider Fujaira prince comes here on a hat-trick and just has the edge at the ratings .
¼ pt win Fujaira Prince @ 10/3
