Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
1.00Her Majesty’s Collinsbay certainly brings the best form to the table , but a bit worrying that he’s frequently placed but no wins . Saying that , it’ll be a shock if he fails to break his duck today , despite being new to the all weather and not obviously bred for the surface, but the top stable has plenty of success here .
1.30 An easy race to read with the lightly raced Animal Instinct sure to take them along , despite the wide draw. He has showed a most willing attitude in winning his last two , both over C&D and could well be up to defying the 4 pound hit . He returns from another break but has run well fresh before. The fav is the useful Harry’s Bar who took his form to a new level last time winning at his first try at this trip , the win coming here . He was an easy winner , and the form is good and the 6 pound hit may well not stop him . Oh this Is Us ran well off this mark last time here, but the drop in trip is the concern .
¼ pt win Animal Instinct @ 10/3

2.30 IN a modest heat it’s worth forgiving Delegate The Lady a below par effort last time , but the soft ground was probably to blame Nicely drawn and a C&D winner .
¼ pt win Delegate The Lady @ 4/1
3.00 There is just no stopping Live in The moment , 4 wins from his last 5 , but of course up in the ratings and not proven on this surface , but this has a winnable look to it with Desert Safari now high in the weights and dropping in trip .
¼ pt win Live in The Moment @ 3/1

Selected Plumpton – good ground on this slightly undulating and sharp track
1.45 The lightly raced Captain Speaking won with ease last time, the win coming a bit out of the blue , and the 12 pound hike most severe, especially as an easy lead not on the cards today . Enforcement went close on soft ground last time but has form on better ground and round here , and Dicky Johnson rides .
¼ pt win Enforecement @ 9/2
2.50 The very wonderful Jamacho goes for the 5 timer and took a noticeable scalp in Highly Prized last time . All of his wins came at Stratford, so you would think he’d be fine on this similar track and worth trying despite the 6 pound penalty .
½ pt win Jamacho @7/2
3.20 A wide open handicap and I’m splitting my stake on a couple of lively longshots in Flying Focus , a good winner at Sedgefield first time in a handicap and the penalty could have been worse , and Flashdanza , a good 3rd at Fontwell at this trip behind a couple of decent yardsticks first time on good ground .
¼ pt ew eacj – Flying Focus @ 10/1 Flashdanza @ 16/1 – small rev fc ??
3.50 kiruna Peak is short odds to land the hat-trick and certainly has claims despite the penalty , but at the odds prefer the well handicapped Caroline’s Charm , who looked dangerous last time, but tied up late on , could last longer today with that run under his belt .
¼ pt win Caroline’s Charm @ 6/1
Selected Listowel – good ground on this flat and sharp track
3.45 the in form stable of Noel Meade has a terrific record here so well worth trying Roslgame , a bumper winner on debut and could be anything .
¼ pt win Roslgame @ 5/1
4.50 As both Ornua and Paloma Blue are more potent at shorter trips , looks a match between the useful pair of The Storyteller and Peregrine Run , and the latter gets the nod on this ground .
¼ pt win Peregrine Run @ 4/1
Selected Hamilton – good to soft on this undulating , galloping and stiff track .
2.05 Not a deep opener and despite now being on a tough mark, Shesadabber runs this C&D very well and has her preferred ground .
¼ pt win Shesadabber @ 11/2
2.40 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 Both Entrancing and Freyja are hard to fancy , leaving this looking a match . Poets Lady won well at Haydock in the mud when last seen a few months ago and now looks on a very challenging mark and will have company up front . Kayewhykelly comes here on a hat-trick and was a cosy winner over C&D last time in the mud and a good bet to land the hat-trick .
¾ pt win Kaywhykelly @15/8
4.40 PREMIUM RACE
5.10 Pammi has taken off over hurdles of late but it would be rash to think that she could transfer this readily to the flat . Millie the Minx landed a double here recently and despite being 6 pound higher for her C&D win in the mud, that was an easy win and this isn’t a big ask .
¼ pt ew Millie The Minx @ 13/2
