Wolverhampton- all weather – polytrack
1.55 A very competitive sprint handicap . The fav is youngster Cumbrianna who already has a C&Dwin to her name , but could find the early pace a bit lively despite her excellent draw, and the Brain Smart stable is going through a bad patch. Veteran Red Cape ran acracker here last tie over C&D and is well drawn and 3 pounds lower. He will have competition for the lead but the first time visor may just light the old guy up.As drawn both Danzoe and Big Vity Boy have solid claims but despite some market support this morning , Seven Lucky Seven is very badly drawn and is better at a longer trip.
½ pt ew Red Cape @ 12/1
2.25 A very competitive claimer and with the lack of pace in the race I’m expecting Luke Morris to utilise the very able Queen Aggie’s good draw and get her a deserved win. She usually races in handicaps and at a slightly longer trip, but she is nor devoid of pace and with these being so closely matched at the weights, it will be all down to who will get the run of the race. Seek the Fair land comes here in the very best of form after winnin a handicap, but it’s doubtful that he’ll get the srong pace to chase he needs at this trip.
¾ pt win Queen Aggie @11/2
2.55 PREMIUM RACE
3.25 Those with form don’t look rat and there are 3 newcomers from big stables
3.55 IT’s all down to which of Althania or Amazing Speed who will act the better of this alien surface for both of them.
4.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.55 These 2yos have had very little racing and none have ever tried this surface
5.25 PREMIUM RACE
Pontefract – good ground on this very stiff and demanding track
A lot of rain is forecast and it doesn’t take much to change the going here
2.10 These 2yos will know they’ve had a race sprinting around this stiff C&D. Few of these have really given any indication that this stiff test will suit. Richard Fahey has a very good record with 2yos here, but Holy Grail is only 5/2 and this is a race I’m just watching
NO single Bet
2.40 It could be a double for Richard Fahey and Luis Vaz De Torres looks the safest option , especially from the plum draw
½ pt Double Holy Grail @ 5/2 Luis Vaz De Torres @ 13/8
3.10 A good quality Class 1 for fillies and mares and the fav is Temptress who ran a stormer at Royal Ascot, but could become another of an already lengthy list of horses to flop after their exertions at the Royal Meeting. The track should be fine as she’s ran very well on stiff tracks, but is at her best chasing a strong pace, which looks unlikely here. Very few here have a history of leading and very few have form on stiff tracks. The exception is Redkhat, who has a but to find at the weights, but could very well get the run of the race, despite the bad draw and gives every indication that she’ll see out this stiff C&D really well.

3.40 I’ve been though this race a few times as I know that there is a really good bet lurking somewhere because of the way the race is likely to pan out. There are five front runners in Deauville Pince, Nameitwhatyou like, Slingsby, Native Falls and Grissom. The first 3 named all badly drawn also. These are likely to fly around Ponty and just as likely to fall into a hole . Manatee bay is too huigh in the weights to take advantage while Sunraider is likely to be too far back to make an impact, despite being a strong finisher. Now we are down to three . Equity Risk races very much lie this C&D will suit and he represents big southern stable of Roger Charlton. He is the fav, but I would have likes him to have been more competitive in his recent races. Barkston Ash is well drawn and if the rains come would have an improved chance.He ran his bet race recently being held up but I give the nod to Tumblewind, who does run well around here and has been given a chance by the handicapper. He races like he needs a real test at this trip , so today could be his perfect day.

4.10 Snooth Operator has run two Ok races At Redcar, but didn;y look the type to relish this testing C&D. Ataweer is also having his only his 3rd race and on breeding and on his good run at Newmarket, suggests that this stiff test will really suit/
¾ pt win Ataweer 11/4
4.40 The short priced fav is Pumaflor but he’s going up in trip and looked anything but a candidate for this tough C&D last time out. He is a hold up horse, as many of the field are , and few give the impression that they’ll relish today’s test and this may give the an opportunity to Zara Zest to get an easy lead , but this is herf irst run of the season and it’s hard making all here. The best stayer in the field is Ivors Investment and I expect Liam Keniry to make best use of his stamina to record another win.He wont mind if the rain gets into the ground
3/4pt win Ivors Investement @ 9/2
5.10 The shirt priced fav is Lilian Bayliss whose recent 3rd looks even better now as the winner showed what a useful filly she is on saturdat. She goes up in trip but you would expect her to stay fine.There are not many in the race with a clear chance over this C&D and at the weights. Monsea has been going well of late and this tough C&Dlooks sure to suit and the energetic Megan Carberry takes the ride.
½ pt ew Monsea @ 11/1
Back with night racing a little later
