Lingfield - all weather- polyrack
12.30 The Mongoose ran a cracker in a decent handicap last time and is the one to beat , especially with red hot jockey Adma Kirby is the saddle.Abigails SAngel is really well suited by the conditions , she has about 10 pounds in hand, but is running way below her rating currently. The Dancing Lord has stamona to prove . I'm not backing The Mongoose @ 11/8
1.00 If you are a severe big hitter, one big bet a fornight , this is your one. vermont is a very dcent type and ran very well ij a competitive maiden recently and that form is way ahead of his rivals. He's 1/3 but if that's your kind of price for big money, step in and then hand in you winning ticket.
I don't bet at those odds.
1.30 Ortorio's Joy is up in the weights but significanty up in trip and that could well find this improving fillly out. The form of St Igantius, Royal Marskell and Epsom Salts is nowhere near good enoug in this event and despite there being a question mark about the surface, Singzak is most reasonable priced for his chance. He remains on a good mark and he is a toug sort to pass as he front rins. The Hlyman has good track stats but has been off for a while and the stable is very very quiet.
3/4 pt win Singzak @ 4/1
2.00 A craking handicap and lots in this with a decent chance.Kuanyo has turned back the clock recently and despite going up in class and in the weighs the hat-trick is not beyond him. Emkanaat will appreciate the return to this trip and is not out of it. Al's memory and Jungle Bay are another couple who have decent chances, as does Smokethatthunders, if he gets the trip. The tip is Tidentime, who is well weighted, comes here on the back of a good run at kempton from a bad draw and the stable is going very well.
1/2 pt ew Tidentiime @ 14/1
2.30 The race of the day, a Class 2 sprint. One thin if for certain and that is Ballista will blast off and take them along at a furious gallop. This will interfere with the chances of Adfdictive Dream whomlikes to contend early but could well be chasing a shadow. I can't se ballista as a winner in his current mood but it's goung tio set it up for a very exciting final furlong. Forest Edge, Lancelot Du Lac Ajjaadd and If So will be finishing but I give the nod to Hawkeyethenoo who wasn't far behind Lancelot du Lac recently and is a much bigger price.
1/2 pt ew Hawkeyethenoo @ 7/1
3.00 Even though he's slightly up in the weights , Keene looks the most likely winner, especially with useful apprentice Louis Steward taking 7 pounds off his back. There are a handful with decent chances but the favourite does look good, but I'm only backing small on this one.
1/2 pt win Keene @ 2/1
3.30 PREMIUM RACE
Heham- softish ground on this verty stiff track
12.50 PREMIUM RACE
1.20 This rests between Roamny Ryme and Simarthur because other mat=rjet fancy Hellorbolton hasn't raced this far or on this very testing track.
1/2 pt Rev Fc Roamny Rhyme _ Simarthur
1.50 Baltic Pathfinder does have the sows but that is ideal for Hexham , a track where he has run his best races. He was out with the washing last time but that wason a very easy track on good ground, today's conditions will really play into hus strngths and he is very well weighted.SunCloud and Thethirstybricky are both well weighted but could well find the trip , track and going against them.
3/4 pt ew Baltic Pathfinder @ 12/1
2.20 PREMIUM RACE
2.50 A very unappealing handicap and bottom weight Circus Star makes some kind of appeal . He's still only young and is comoetitive off this mark. He ran a great race here last time when looking allover the winner between the lst two only to weaken out of it. the ground is no so testing today and his odds are mammoth considering his chances. Bernadellis has more to do , but is only young and could improve, Sacre Toi has a god mark but he's more of a chaser and his hurdling isn't great. Light The City caused a big shock at Sedgefield but whether he can reproduce that here, off a higher mark is doubtful.
1/2 pt ew Circus Star @ 25/1
3.20 PREMIUM RACE
leicester- fast over chases, good to soft over hurdles on this stiff track
12.40 These are all pertty inexperienced and Algernon Pazham is the one to beat after chasing a decent type of John ferguson's here last time. Today's trip is a bit longer and on breeding that will suit. Silsol ran only Ok on is debut at Aintree and if this is his trip is most uncertain. At the odds I'm going for Speedy Brulee who is more of a chaser, but the track and ground will suit and he is well overpriced for his chances.
1/2 pt win Speedy Brulee @ 12/1
1.10 A dreadful race . Doible Double has had little racing of late, Thetrelands has yet to go this far and the other is pretty hopeless. NO bet
1.40 The BulHayes is a stone better in with his rivals but can he be trusted to run his race, probably not. Gogondas and Chinkillo both have a bit to do but at last are both triers. NO bet
2.10 It's hard to desert the gallant grey Balbriggan, but he is very high in the weights and both his main rivals The Musical Guy and Little Chip are weighted to beat him. I just favour The Musical Guy
The Musical Guy @ 4/1
2.40 I should have tipped up Un Anjou on Sunday, but I didn't and he won realy well. He's only young and this track at this trip is fine as is the ground and he's not overpunished for his win and the oppossitio is there for the taking. Sonofagun is well weighted but needs further.
3/4pt win Un Anjou @ 5/2
3.10 Focus has ben out up 8 pounds for his last flight fall last time out when loking a most likely winner. The winner that day has cince gone on to run a corker at Cheltenham , so the form looks sound enough. Nothing loks particularly well weighted to take adavntage of Foxcubs weight rise and he's the one to beat.
3/4 pt win Foxcub @ 4/1
Hope the fog clears for Kempton tonight.
3.40 Not a race to get involved in . Quiet Warrior has the best form , but that was over a little further and with a couple of likely newcomers here in the shape of Mercury Magic and Why Not Now, couldn't go for Quiet Warrior at even money No bet
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.40 Again not a race to get involved in. Can't be too sure what Fine Vintage achieved in a modest affair at Wolver on the slow surface. He's quite a short priced favourite and the form of Al Busayyir looks at least comparable. NO bet
5.10 Again very little to go on with those with experience looking at best modest. The newcomers are pretty well bred and from good stables. Ladbrokes was out on a limb offering 12/1 on Cumani's well bred newcomer Galuppi, if that's still available I'll have a small bet
1/2 pt win Gallupi @ 12/1
5.40 Irish Tears ran a very solid race in a decent nursery off the same mark last time and has a big chance. Our Gabriell is capable off this mark and is another contender. I'm going for Habdab , who was greatly inconvenienced by the snail like pace last time, she's been dropped a bit in the weights and does have the form to be in the shake up and the price is good.
1/2 pt win Habdab @ 12/1
6.10 Scottish Boogie and Lady Rosamunde are honest types , but don't quite make the short list. Spiritofmintoul was most impressive ver course and distance when last seen about 3 months ago and he's left Lady Cecil and is now with Tony Carroll, doesn't look like a move in the right direction to me. Clerk's Choice is a very good hurdler and is a good mark but the trip is the problem. Norfolk Sky was a very authorative winner last time and hasn't been punsihed a great deal and is very fairly priced.
3/4 pt win Norfolk Sky
6.40 The race of the night and lots in with a chance. The dark horses are : Trooping the colour , I'm From Govan and Zamoyski, we just don't know how good they are over this course and distance, but they've all showed they are capable of defying their marks.Jazz Master and Halfson are weighted out of this but there's not much betweem Spifer, Lowther, Shanvansky and Super say, with catilo Del diabolo a well beaten favourite. Shavansky won that night and could well go in again off his small penalty.
1/2 pt ew Shavansky @ 16/1
7.10 A very ricky handicap indeed and bottom weight Moortahan showed a bit more last time and continues to drop in the weights. Magical Reward and Little Indian have the form to figure.
1/4pt win Moortahan
Dundalk - all weather-polytrack
6.20 Only 5 run and there is quite a strong case for backig topweught Knock Stars. I've backed Majestic Timeline in winning his last two starts, but they were very weak affairs and he's far too high in the weights now and was behind Knock Stars 3 runs ago and is now a stone worse off !! Antiquus is up in the weights for winning over further and this drop in trip is right against him. Cottrell may well not have the pace for this trip but Above The Law is a huge improver and though he's been off for over 200 days, and is much highr in the weights, he can't be ruled out.
3/4 pt win Knock Stars @ 5/1( Bet Victor)
6.50 Elisve Ice ran Ok on her retrun to the track after a year off but was't screaming out for this longer trip. The trip is pefect for the well drawn Lean and Kean and he can gain revenge over Deep Speed over this shorter trip, The rest have little to recommend them but Blue Jig Lady isn't bad over hudles and could be the surprise packet.
3/4 pt win Lean and Kean @ 7/2 ( William Hill)
7.20 Henson has a good level of form but hasn't been seen for over 150 days and tries polytrack for the first time. Vector Force has verty solid form over course and distance and is takem to confirm form over Hardstone who did run a debut full of promise/
3/4 pt win Vector Force @ 3/1
7.50 Miller Beach won last week in the style of an mproving youngster, but he's up int he weights and down in trip and that could spell trouble. Mountain Coral ran well in a mlodest event last week and has been put up for his trouble. RedLaser wasnt far behind that night and has pull in the weights and a better draw. I take him just to get the better of well weighted longshot Great Ability
1/2 pt win RedLaser @ 6/1
8.20 This is really wide open but it seems to rest between Street Party, Senyuman and Stynes and I give tjhe nod to Senyuman who is very well weighted and can be forgiven a below par run last time .
1/2 pt win Senyuman @ 9/2 ( William Hill )
8.50 Another very open Dundalk handicap . Juara won with authority last time but this youngster has been pushed up 7 pounds and that's quite a lot to cope with. Habesh is well weighted on last year's form and will hace come on for his recent run and has top jockey Joseph O'Brien aboard. He is the danger to the consistent Mad for Road who hasn't been seen on the flat for over 250 days but ran perfectly Ok over hurdles recently. Armed Guard is another with claims over this trip.
1/2 pt win Mad for Road @ 13/2 ( Bet Victor)
