Selected Musselburgh – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
1.15 Smiling Jessica was looking unlikely ever to break her duck bit came good over &D last time out on her first try at this track. She just got the better of Misfits, who is entitled to get revenge at the weights, but this one has a shocking win record and could well be worried out of it again. The tip is just 3 pounds higher and more of a concern is the softer ground than the opposition.
¼ pt win Smiling Jessica @ 4/1
2.20 This has a most winnable look at the fav is youngster Je Suis Charlie whose opening mark is far from generous and this will be the softest ground he’s ever raced on. The ground is no use to Mr Kite and the likeable Stags leap can only be watched returning from a very long absence. Traditional dancer was entitled to do far better last time and can only be watched while Meadowcroft Boy ‘s favourite stamping ground f late has been Carlisle, a most different track , and he struggled abit for pace here last time. Treshnish is a consistent sort and goes handicapping on a fair mark, but is another who struggled for pace last time on a speed track. Asum won at the first of asking for his new stable in the Werherby mud, so the ground is no issue and the track should also be fine. He’s been penalised a harsh looking 7 pounds , but he’s lightly raced and certainly worth a play at generous odds. He made all last time , rallying bravely for the win, and as nothing else has a history of going on, could go all the way.
½ pt win Asum @ 7/1
2,55 Wings of Smoke is well into the veteran stage now and is nowhere near as good as he was, but he ran very well off this mark last time in the lingfield mud last time. He hasn’t won for some time, but this is certainly a great chance to get back in the winner’s circle .
¼ pt win Wings of Smoke @ 5/1
3.30 Jump for Dough impressed last time over C&D winning very well . He’s up 6 pounds but hasn’t been with his stable that long and looks sure to run another big race. The softer ground is a slight concern but he really only has recent C&D winner Fraser canyon to beat, and his recent tries on the mud have been poor.
¾ pt win Jumo for Dough @ 13/8
Suggested Musselburgh placepot
Selected Lingfield- all weather- polytrack
1.25 The admirably consistent Inuk has most solid form over C&D off this mark and is also well drawn to obtain an ideal early handy pitch. She is tough in the finish and a 3rd won from her last 5 beckons
¾ pt win Inuk @ 2/1
2.00 PREMIUM RACE
2.30 Full marks to Udontdodou wining 3 of his last 4 , but he’s do well going in again off a testing mark and also back up in trip. Kachy drops in grade , but I’d rather just watch this one , trying the surface for the first time, from the worst of the draw and with other front runner in the field. Human Nature showed he can cut a dah at this trip with a good win at Chelmsford. He wasn’t ridden to advantage here last time, but still came home well suggesting that he’s not weighted out of things. Milly Naseb is back in the saddle and form a good draw , I expect him to go close with a prominent ride .
¼ pt win Human Nature @ 4/1
3.05 Youcan make a case for almost all and I’m playing one of the longshots in Bartolomew J . He won a few times last year, including a win over this C&D. He recently resumed to duties and ran really well just weakening out of it late on . He;s bound to strip fitter with that run under his belt and has generously been dropped 2 pounds and went close to winning off this mark at haydock.
½ pt win bartolomew J @ 10/1

Selected Chepstow- heavy ground on this undulating, stiff and galloping track
1.35 Jammin Masters is understandably a short priced fav and should be fine over the C&D In the mud , but he does have seconditis , not a good condition for an odds on fav. TRixster ran a solid race last time in a decent event at Wetheby , running on well, suggesting this longer trip will help and looks a lively logshot.
¼ pt ew TRixster @ 12/1
2.10 Ramses de Teifee has only had the 2 starts over fences and has run a cracker both times . He blitzed the field over C&D on his chase debut in the mud and then wen ton to lose absolutely nothing at all in defeat at Fontwell when only just failing to give chunks of weight to Get on the yegar who went on to land a Class 1 even next time under a penalty. He has to give weight away to a talented pair , but useful hurdler Rons Dream cam only be watched back over fences, but Impusive Dream could be troublesome, but the tip is a progressive young chaser who looks sure to go onto much better things .
1/2 pt win Ramses De Teilles @ 5/4
3.20 PREMIUM RACE
3.50 It’s been some time since the well handicapped Auenwirbel landed one, but this is his best C&D and ground , and this wont take a great deal of winning with recent winners Finnegans Garden and Balyegan forced to race off testing marks.
¼ pt ew Auenwirbel @ 6/1
