York – good to firm ground on this flat and galloping track
1.55 PREMIUM RAC
2.30 It all depends which if the classy filles of Anthem Alexander, Cursory Glance and Tiggy Wiggy is the most effective at this longer trip. They are priced accordingly.
3.05 A lot of good handicappers but Bronze Angel returns to the scene of his greatest triumph and even though a bit higher in the weights has perfect conditions.
½ ptew Bronze Angel @ 12/1
3.40 Wonder filly Taghrooda looks certain to extend her unbeaten record and only has this quicker ground to beat. She’s deservedly 1/4
4.20 A very open fillies race and the improved Arabian Comet wont be far away.
½ pt ew Arabian Comet @ 5/1
4.55 She’s a little high in the weights, but Dutch Rose runs this track so very well and could well defy topweight in a winnable handicap.
½ pt ew Dutch Rose @ 12/1
Ffos Las- good to firm ground on this flat and quick track
2.10 Four here with a chance. Mile House , Spa Hill , Seranamen all head the market bit Vinceson’s form is not that far behind and looks a fair ew bet
¼ pt ew Vinceson @ 9/1
2.45 Jewellery returned to form with a bang but has bombed out on this track 3 times . Driving Well is running well enough to take a handin this and the first time blinkers could help.
1/2pt ew Driving Well @ 8/1
3.20 None of this field are suited to the trip , the track or the going, but one is going to win.It wil probably be Hold Court , but I’m not betting on it.
3.55 Milly Malone has been given a great opportunity but is not known for her consistenty. Richard Johnson could make the difference.
½ pt win Milly Malone @ 2/1
4.30 A wide open handicap and I just give the nod to Fighter Jet , who is young enough to progress further.
¼ pt win Fighter Jet @ 11/2
5.05 Sedgemor Express is a much improved chaser and must go close even with his penalty . On this ground I give the nod to the back to form Wester Ross.
1/2pt ew Wester Ross @ 4/1
5.35 Goldie Hawn has only been winning sellers and this company is too hot today.City Line is hard to win with while Ted Dolly reverts to hurdles and is another who finds winning hard. Panache sprung a 100/1 shcok at Worcester recently and then ran well enough next time out to suggest a more than forward show at these weights.
¼ pt win Panache @ 7/1
Bath- firm ground on this sharp but stiff track
2.20 BIG HIT
This will be easy for the flying Free Entry and she’s fairly priced
2pts win Free Entry @ 8/13
2.55 PREMIUM RACE
3.30 Molly jones is a real track star but she can opposed up in the weights and in class. All of the rest have claims and are very hard to split.
4.05 PREMIUM RACE
4.40 Happy families has looked a much improved filly this season, She goes well here and on quick ground.It’s a tough enough race.especially with Sweeping Along in the field, but she is vey good value to get another win.
½ pt ew Happy Families @ 8/1
5.15. This is an open contest and I’m with Sleipnir again , who looks a very good ew bet.Gratzie is the main danger
½ pt ew Sleipnir @ 13/2
5.45 Highlife Dancer likes the C&D and also the ground.All of Iguacu , First Sergeant and Igaucu are big dangers.
¼ pt ew Highlife Dancer @ 9/2
Newton Abbot – good to firm ground on this flat and sharp track
5.25 The short priced fav is newcomer Mondlicht, but makes no appeal to me as both of his flat runs resulted in wins on the fibresand at Southwell and each time stamina won him the day. He doesn’t look at akll the type who wil appreciate quick turf. All of the rest are possibilities but Miss Fortywinks has never failed to make the frame here and looks an improved mare.
¼ pt ew Miss Fortywinks @ 6/1
6.00 The short priced fav is the well handicapped Crannaghmore Boy, but this one has severe stamina doubts. Georgian King will fond this much easier than his latest runs but slight preference if for the wel handicapped Lord Lescribaa who is on his best track.
¼ pt ew Lord Lescribaa @ 7/1
6.30 A Class 2 handicap but most of these are either better at a shorter trip or on slightly slower ground. The exception is youngster Chalk It Down, who put up his best performance ever when winning at this trip last time out. The handicapper has slammed him, but he could still do it over a track he’s won at.
1.25pt win Chalk It Down @ 7/2
7.00 A very weak handicap and this could well go to rank outsider Spice Hill. He has run some very decent races off this handicap mark and has the best form of the field on quick ground and this kind of track.
¾ pt win Spice Hill @ 20/1
7.30 Gorteenwood is an admirable sort but has a bit more to do at the weights and is unproven on this track. Accessallareas has been coming down the weights and ran a cracker over C&dlast time out. That run gives him the clear edge over Zama Zama and McCoy is in the saddle.
1.5 pts win Accessallareas @ 2/1
8.00 No bet in this bumper with quite a few from strong stables.
Wolverhampton – all weather- tapeta
6.20 An amateur riders handcicap and a pretty weak one at that. Even though she is higher in the weights for a cosy win last time, youngster Sweetheart Abbey is clearly the one to beat, especially with top amateur Simon Walker in the saddle.
1.25 pts win Sweetheart Abbey @ 11/8
6.50 Seamster is on a hat-trick but is much higher in the weights and hasn’t been seen for 6 weeks. He likes to lead but will have company with the revitalised veteran Billy Red. Front runners have been going well at this venue and he is taken to hold on from Storm Lightning .
¼ pt ew Billy Red @ 12/1
7.20 A very winnable handicap and it could well go the much improved Borough Boy,who should certainly act on the surface and is well drawn for his late thrust.
1pt win Borugh Boy @ 5/1
7.50 I’m not keen on Red prmo or Exceeder at these weights but the other 6 all have practically equal chances.
8.20 This looks easy for Runner Runner and he can get a deserved first win against some very modest rivals .
1.5 pts win Runner Runner @ 11/8
8.50 Front running Bertie Blu Boy would have a great chance of defying his penalty if it wasn’t for Majestic Dream in the field, who is another front runner. You would expect this to go to a strong finisher but neither Madame Mirasol nor Indus Valley are that wellweighted. I’m with Bertie to get the better of the early exchanges.
¼ pt win Bertie Blu Boy @ 11/2
9.20 Talk of the Town is one of the highest rated maidens in the country at 92, and if she can’t win this, they should give up. She is 2/5 and I wont be playing.
