The free tips ended on a high yesterday with Litmus winning at 16/1 and the two dnagers finsihing 2nd and 3rd for tricast players
Ludlow- good ground on this easy track.
12.40 This looks good for To The Sky , who has precious little to beat, but he is priced accordingly and I wouldn't be going full on.
1pt winTo The Sky @ 11/8
1.10 Even though King Massini is up in the weights and down in trip he has found a very soft race and can double up.
1pt win Kng Massini @ 6/4
1.40 PassThe Time impressed last time ver a little further and he's up in the weights. Buxom wiont have the soft ground she needs and Flying Phoenix could just get her head in front.
1/2 pt win Flying Phoenix @ 3/1
2.10 PREMIUM RACE
2.40 A Cracking good Class 3 chase . Oscar Hill came back to his best last time but has a penalty, quicker ground and a quicker track to contend with. Gud Day is too high in the weights. King Edmond has conditions to suit today and this very genuine performer has excellent course stats and will take some caching in his usual front running role. Anay Turge is also high in the weights but is improving while Tindaro and Lancetto can't be discounted.
3/4 pt win Kng Edmond @ 7/1
3.10 It wasn't a great race which Portway Flyer won last time but he has found a soft race in which to double up. he is 4/7 and that is very short and I'd love to take him on , but what with ? Motou , Moscow Me and Queen Spud all have chances but I'm going to watch
Catterick - good ground on this quick track
12.20 Smaydium ran a stomer at Haydock in a good race but has further to go today. Both Civil nrest and Amir Pasha are in great form but the handicapper has set them most difficult tasks today. Funky Monkey is very honest but needs slower ground. Aficianado is only very young and ran very wel in an all aged handicap last time when the soft ground looked to be against him. He's up in the weights but easily has the greates scope for improvement and this ground and track both look fine.
3/4 pt win Aficianado @ 9/2
12.50 Sambelucky is the short priced favourite but is havibg only his 3rd run in 3 years and could well bounce. Waht's going to take advantage is ost uncertain. Discoverie is only young but isn't that well handicapped. Forestside has come down the weights and though he'd prefer a ore galloping track looks decent each way value.
1/2 pt ew Forestside @ 13/2
1.20 Forced Family Fun won well on his debut in the soft at hexham and will find conditoon stotally different today. he might just get away with it. Like A Diamond and Morning With Ivan are two decent flat types who could shake up the favourite. No bet
1.50 PREMIUM BET
2.20 Not getting involved here wit precious between Run Ructions Run, Bonnet's Vino and Maison De Vuile and the bookies have it about right. No bet
2.50 Though he has first clas chance I just couldn't back Categorical at 2/1. He's so inconsistent and I'm going for Everaard who has good course form and is well enough weighted , ven though his form has been a bit in and out of late
1/4 pt win Everaard @ 7/1
Lingfield - all weather- polytrack
12.00 4 run and only 3 matter an I have them very closely matched so the big price of Our Gabriel is certainly good value.
1/2pt win Our Gabriel @ 11/1 ( Ladbrokes)
12.30 Not a great contest. Lady Guinevere's form is nothng special while hasn't been seen for 18 months and makes his polytrack debut. Grasped is a well bred newcomer from Lady Cecil's stabel. I'm rying Tumbledown who ran Ok over further last time and this drop in trip could really help and he's very well priced for his chance
1/2 pt ew Tumbledown @ 10/1
1.00 A cracking Class 2sprint and though he's down in trip and up in the weights Addictive Dream can double up. Forest Edge has lots to do both up in the weights and down in trip while Ubetterbegood could surprise desoite an adverse draw.
3/4 pt win Addictive Dream @ 4/1
1.30 A cracking Class 2 and none of the 5 can be discounted. Uramzain ran a cracker last time but will he bounce today ? Marshgate Lan could wellset a leisurely tempo as nothing else really wants to go on. Tactically he'll have the edge and he's good enugh to hold on.
1/2 pt win Marshgate Lane @ 3/1
2.00 Scottish Lake is the only front runner and return after a break which is god news for us because he's at his best after breaks, He remains well weighted and this course and distance is fine.Barbados Bob may well find this surface too lively while The Mongoose is up in class. My learned Friend cis a lively outsider.
3/4 pt ew Scottish Lake @ 10/1
2.30 Kuanyao os the nly front runner and bounced back to something like his best last time in a well contested claimer. he's back in handicap on a verty reasonable weight and will take some catching.Black Dave is poorly drawn but is the danger.
3/4 pt win Kuanyao @ 9/2
3.00 Mallory Heights has a big chance but is only 7/4 and the stable has been very quiet of late. KIngs Request is lightly raced and ran wel last timeand the stable is going well. I'm goijng for My History who has come down the weights, has run welloff higher marks and this could be his trip.
1/2 pt ew My History @ 14/1
Kempton - all weather- polytrack
3.50 Not a great race for a bet. Lady Crossmar has the best form but that is over further and it's most unlikely that she'll have the pace for this shorter trip. Shushu Sugartown shaped well on debt but this trip isn't sure to suit either. Newcomer Garraun is bred to be a sprinter and her good stable of Jeremty Noseda can get them ready first time.
1/2 pt win Garraun @ 9/4
4.20 PREMIUM RACE
4.50 PREMIUM RACE
5.20 A big field but very few with a chance. The trip is the problem with the likes of Jamaica Grande,Geeaitch and Trulee Scrumptious. Princess Willow is very honest and has a feasible rating but this trip does just stretch her . Koos ran only in a claimer last time but it wasn't a bad race and this ex -German has a very good racing weight on only his second start for the red hot stable of Marco Botti.
1pt win Koos @ 4/1
5.50 PREMIUM RACE
6,20 A cracking good Class 3 handicap and very open . Halfsin has yet to win at this trip but could just about get it and that makes him a contender, Nautilus has had a little break but comes here with a fine chance off a decent handicap rating. Both Presburg and Stevie Thunder have more to do with their penalties but wil run their races. I'm going for the lightly raced Omar Khayyam who could possibly be better than his rating, but it's very open.
1/2 pt win Omar Khayyam @ 4/1
6.50 A highly competitive handicap .Despite the big field ther is only one front runner and though poorly drawn , One Last Dream could have way up front. He remains well handicapped and his last run is best forgotten , even though he was a close up 3rd, as it was an apprentice's handicap which had a very uneven pace. He's better than that and can hold on tonight.There are a host of dangers including: West leake, Larghetto, Hinton Admiral, Perfect Pastimeand Wishformore, but not Multitask nor Princess Spirit.
1.2 pt win One Last Dream @ 9/1
7.20 Ivestar is in good form and has the plot draw but for a very infrequent winer he's not attractively priced at 3/1 favourite. Fathom Five is up in tjhe weights for his win at Southwell and will do very well to get anywhere the the front tonight. Lastkingofscotland was gambled on last time but it was mug money and dropping in trip he has even less chance tonight. Oavtory is only young and has showed pace over further and first time blinkers could make a big difference.New Rich, Reginald Claude and Pharaoh Jake are others in with a decent chance. NO Bet . Hopefully by this time we will have cleaned the Kempton bookie out !!!
