Doncaster – good ground on this flat an galloping track
12.15 PREMIUM RACE
12,45 This will take little winning and it gives the likeable Lowcarr Motion a great chance of a first ever win. His form is not sensational and he is bit high in the weights, but in the context of this contest, he is a superstar !
¾ pt win Lowcarr Motion @ 9/2
1.20 PREMIUM RACE
1.55 Innocent Touch is a mist likeable and able flat horse who won at the first time of asking over hurdles. The form is nothing great and he does have to give weight away, but with a flat mark of 80, he should be able to race at a level to dispose of beatable rivals. Holly Bush Henry and Mt Kit Kat could well find this trip too short while Baltic Storm’s second at Fontwell has been recently let down by the other placed horses.
½ pt win Innocent Touch @ 3/1
2.30 Connections paid £280,000 for Charbel and even though he won at the first time of asking for nee owners, it wasn’t a scintillating run and today’s quicker ground could see him struggling a bit under his penalty. In fact, botht the otherfancies runners, Boston De La Roche and Emperor Commodos have also showed preference for a soft surface.Cactus Vallley was rate around 80 on the flat , which makes him of interst on his hurdles debut and at the odds must be worth a play.
¼ pt ew cactus Valley @ 33/1
3.05 There’s been a lot of money for Kim Baley’s Silver Eagle today who returns from an 18 month absence off a pretty generous handicap mark. Ths wont take much winning and I’m with the progressive young stayer Present Flight, who is unbeaten at this trip and could well make it 3 wins from4 .
½ pt win Present Flight @ 7/2
3.35 No Play in the bumper
Musselburgh – good ground on this flat and galloping track
12.35 PREMIUM RACE
1.10 This will take little winning , and even though herform is not brilliant , it certainly is the best on show and a first win looks on.
½ pt win Cosmic Tigress @ 2/1
1.45 THrothehatch is on a at-trick but he’s been ht hard by the handicapper and today;s quicker ground is far fro ideal. He also has a bad race make up as The Back up Plan is also a confirmed front runner. This will surly set it up for the patiently ridden Rear Admiral, who comes here in good form and will welcome the quicker ground.
¾ pt win Rear Admiral @ 7/2
2.20 As I expected. Arcament ran well on his hurdles debut but I give the nod to irish raider Chitu, who took on some pretty warn company last season in bumpers.
¼ pt win Chitu @ 7/2
2.55 Castlelawn and Blades Lad look sure to cut out the running and both can be taken on. They wil compromise their chances by takin g each other on , also Castletown is only having his 3rd race in 2 season and is likely to bounce, while Bkades Ladis now too high in the weights. Endeavour is certainly high enough in the weights , but as usual wilol run his usual game race, especially over his favourite C&D. Both Claragh Native and MUwalla are worth playing too in Fcs and tricasts.

3.25 No play in the bumper
Newbury- very soft ground on this flat and galloping track
12.25 A vice race to watch with 4 last time out winners and it’s impossible to evaluate the form as three of these cane in France !
12.55 Mon Successor could improve for the softer ground but despite having the best jockey in this conditionals handicap in Harry Cobden, I’m with Bincombe. Who ran well recently at Aintree and this an easier task. Colins Brother gives the impression that this C&D will suit and must have a decent chance.
¼ pt ew Bincombe @ 11/1
1.30 This is most winnable with many of th field just too high in the weights or racing at a longer trip , unlikely to suit. The fav is promising novice Missed Approach who is fairly weighted on his handicap debut and merits consideration .Sykes is having a great season but a futher rise in the weights gives him a lot more to do.Easter Day and Gevrey Chambertain bith come here on the back of fair runs at Chelteham. Of that pair, the latter is going to prefer today’s softer ground and when you consider he raced in the French Champion Hurdle only 3 runs back, thus is a much easier task.
1/2pt ew Gevrey Chambertain @ 16/1
2.05 A crackerjack of a novice chase and plenty of these will be making their marks in top events this season. With so many ifs and buts , easy to make it just good viewing .
2.40 PREMIUM RACE
3.15 There are just so many in this field with a chance in thus novice hurdle, you could make a case for 3/4 of the field !
3.45 Another big field for novice hurdles and clearly the best of these in bumpers was Wait For Me, but 6/4 is plenty sort enough with plenty of these likely to improve for jumping a hurdle.
Wolverhampton – all weather – tapeta
4.10 The shirt priced fav us Kingsley Klaition, whi I was on kast time out and wasn;t at all hopeful when he was struggling out the back in the early stages, but when he hit the strait , his stamina kicked in and he drew away for an easy win. The drop in trip looks much against him as does the hefty weight rise. Emerlad Bay is a consistent sort who is fully effective around this C&D, but is another to go up in the weights, but despite that has to go close in this weak affair.I;m wuth Lady Khelylef, who cam back to for last time out when only 5th but beaten about hal a length in a similar race at Lingfield. She’s not well drawn but the way she races. This slower surface emay be just wat she wants.
¼ pt ew Lady Kheyleyf @ 14/1
4.45 Bosham is a speesy customer but usually races at a slightly longer trip and in the context of this race, wont be able to lead with the better drawn and early speedball Falsify, who always runs her race , but is now vulnerable with her rise in the weights. Inncocently came close to winning at the weekend in abetter event over C&D . He’s well drawn and has a good race make up for his strong finish , but I give the nod to Space Artist, who was just behind in that race and had anything but a clear run. You’re Cool is in fine form, but is edging up the weights, and from a poor draw is overlooked.
¾ pt ew Space Artist @ 13/2 ¼ pt Rev F.c Space Artist- Innocently
5.15 Air of York is the short priced fav to continue his progress for his new stable. He was very well backed when an easy winner at Southwell, but that wasn’t much of a race and from a 6 pound higher mark looks vulnerable. Major Muscari is a lileable type who goes well over this C&D. He is bound to come on for his recent decent run, which was his first for 4 months. He is now back at this best trip and the cheekpieces are back on. Martin Harley takes the ride and he looks one of the best bets of the night.
¾ pt ew Major Muscari @ 7/1
5,45 Zeba Lad is a likebale type who always threatened to be a bit better than he ‘s showed. He did it very well last time out under this jockey in an apprentice handicap over C&D. He gets no penalty for that but goes up 5 pounds in future. It’s a case of now or never maybe, and in the context of this race, he looks very good for the double .
¾ pt win Zebs Lad @ 6/4
6.15 None of these have raced over this C&D and you would expect the finsh to be fought out by Sunday Royal, Southerly Buster and Champagne Ceri, who all bring decent form to the table, but which ine will be the best over C&D is most uncertain.
6.45 A very good race for the track. A Class 2 for fillies . The most interesting runner is certainly the useful Cold as Ice , who was Grade 2 winner in South Africa and has now joined the top stable of William Haggas.It’s her first run for 10 months and this surface will be brand new to her. She also has a poor race ake up for a front runner with Maggie Pink and Skinny Love known for going like the clappers early on , and also Invoke wont be faraway in the early stages. This is is going to suit the hold up horses and the choice is classy filly Lahar, who stays further than this , and though most effective on polytrack this is herfirst try on tapeta, but the stable has plenty of winners here, so you would expect this not to be an issue. The race wlll alos suit the racing style of Kyllachy Queen, who has her first race for Marco Botti and this ex – Italian wil be putting in big ones at the end, but it’s likely that this trip will be shirt of her best.
¾ pt win Lahar @ 5/2 ¼ pt Rev F/c Lahar- Kyllachy Queen
7.15 Wonderful veteran goes for a C&D hat-trick but could be foiled with a further 6 pound rise in the weights. Wink Oliver had certain ly improved since joining David Dennis,but is unproven at this longer trip. Al’s Memory has been given a chance by the handicapper and has found himself in a winnable contest.
¼ pt ew Als Memory @ 12/1
7.45 Quite a few o these are in form but going up slightly in trip. I can;t see this suiting Anastazia but Manlito looks likely to benefit. Evacusafe Lady has refound her consistency and comes here in decent enough form and is the pick as many of these make little appeal.
¼ pt ew Evacusafe Lady @ 11/1
Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
5.35 Quite a few of these are dropping in trip and the way they’ve been shaping, market leaders, Victorious Secret and Mr Michael, could well get outpaced around this sharp five furlongs. La Fleur de Force s another who had been running over further but shaped up OK over C&D last time out, to make her a most solid ew pick under an in form jockey.
½ pt ew La Fleur De Force @ 7/1
6.05 Chiclet ran a rare bad one last time out, but it’s too soon to right her off. Burren View Lady has quite a but to do to get the double off a much higher mark and away from her beloved Wolverhampton. The handicapper was most impressed with Danz Gift’s somewhat surprise win over C&D last time and he’s been lifted 15 pounds ! which is plenty for arunner who had been lookin exposed. KImbay has to go close even though he had only anose to spare over Fast In The Wind last time , but he is the better of the pair at this trip. This leaves us with admitable veteran Calm Bay, whi has been in good form of late on turf, and he is so well handicapped on his return ths this surface, where he’s won 3 times in the past.
¼ pt ew Calm Bay @ 12/1
6.35 Stronger than Me and Ringside Humour are two likeable types who fought out a finish here recently over this track, but besides the rise in the weights , they are also racing over a longer trip , far from sure to suit. Bittern ran really well on her first try here and despite a small rise in the weights this youngster has to go close . I’m with Wither Hills , who has been given a good chance by the handicapper and will appreciate the return to this C&D. Jan Van Eyck got it right last time out, but a rise in the weights and class makes it much tougher.
½ pt ew Wither Hills @ 8/1 ¼ pt Rev F/c Wither Hills – Bittern
7.05 Empresario hasn’t raced on the flat for 9 months but recently showed his wll being with an excellent 3rd over fences off a mark of 128 , that run equates to about 80 on the flat and tonight he runs off only 58.He was rated much higher in the past, but hs runs at tis track were all decent and all off much higher marks. He is very well drawn and has found himself in a very winnable contest.
¾ pt ew Empressario @ 6/1
7.35 All of Medamoselle Penny, Honor Oak, Swift Harry, Solar Benny and Shukhvon have been running well over C&D and has crossed swords a few times and at the weights, Shukov comes out just the best.
¼ pt ew Shukhov @ 6/1
8.05 A big field of juveniles and plenty has showed enough to be of interest. Matk Johnston is no stranger to raiding here and he runs Twobelucky , and on the basis of that is worth a play.
¼ pt win Twobelucky @ 10/3
8.35 Stamp of Authority culd have dome a bit better last time out over c&D for his new stable, but tbhus is miles better and with the dangers all happierover a longer trip, he looks the best bet of the night from a good draw and a first time visor.
1pt win Stamp of Authority @ 10/3
9.05 I wason Chestnut Firelast time out when she won convincingly over C&D. The handicapper has responded with a 9 pound fine and it’s pretty uncertain if that will stop her as she is still progressive. Tjhe inform and likeable Reckless Lad will have to wait for anither day at this shorter trip and from a higher mark. The field is clear, for once, for bold front running Maontri to do what she’s best at , to set the pace and have to getcaught.She has dropped to a winning mark, and this is her best trip . She had a great make up and we could end the night on a bang.
