¼ pt Rev F/c Dresden – Wings of Smoke 3.40
Southwell – good ground on this flat and very sharp track
1.50 This race has a very winnable look about it and I’m with Brother Scott, who last time he races at this specialist track, has the race well sewn up only to come a cropper at the last.This could easily be compensation.
½ pt win Brother Scott @ 9/1
2.20 A few dark horse in Bobs Legend, Black wood Rover and The Yank, who are with running for new stables or trying a new trip. Chankillo will have his ground and is feared with Sam TD a very positive jockey booking. Go Teescomponent ran well last time he raced over C&D. It wasn’t a great race , bit track form counts for so much around here.
¼ pt ew Go Teescomponent @ 20/1
2.50 No play in the maiden
3.20 A wide open handicap but I’m with the consistent , reliable and tough Finish The Story, who has decent enough form here to make give him a very decent chance at long odds.
¼ pt ew Finish the Story @ 14/1
3.50 No Play in the seller
4.20 Cusheen Bridge showed improve form in the Winter and will have derived much benefit from his recent pipe opener.He runs this track well and could well have the legs of both Vodka N tonic and Mac Bertie, who would prefer loinger trips.
1/2 pt win Cusheen Bridge @ 5/1
Musselburgh – probably good to soft on this flat, galloping and pretty quick track
2.00 NO play in this 2yo race
2.30 This wont take much winning. Spirit of the Vale has run well enough to suggest that a win off this mark is entirely possible. She is well drawn , but the her ability to handle softer ground has to be taken on trust.
½ pt win Spirit of The Vale @ 15/2
3.00 Even though EEny Mac has not been at his best this year, some of his runs haven’t been that bad. He’s been given a good chance by the handicapper and with most of his rivals having a problem with the longer trip and softer ground, worth a small play from an excellent draw.
¼ pt ew Eeny Mac @ 25/1
3.30 This will take little winning with the ion form Tourtiere now very high in the weights for winning weak races and the likely softer ground is far from ideal. Love Marmalade is in form and goes wll here . The problem is that he is a top of the ground horse.If the ground isn’t too bad, he’s a massive price for a clear chance.
½ pt win Love Marmalade @ 7/1
4.00 PREMIUM RACE
4.30 Desire is the short priced fav after here good win at Leicester. She wont like the ground though and this brings quite a few into the mix. I’m trying Can You Reverse, who hasn;t had much racing and the way he ran on last time, this long straight will surely help.
¼ pt ew Can You Reverse @ 8/1
5.05 PREMIUM RACE
Stratford – probably good ground on this flat and sharp track
2.10 IT’s a match between the joint favs Low Key and Bedale , and with scant reward for getting g it right , I’m passing.
2.40 Sans Artist is very hard to win with and this tight track may be far from ideal. Sylvan Legend has to beat the handicapper but the longer trip may help him just do that. The drying ground has come to the rescue of Top Chief, whose stable is going really well.
½ pt win Top Chief @ 4/1
3.10 The progressive Lilac Tree is fairly weighted in his first handicap but slight preference is for Good Of Luck, who has some very solid form in the book.
¼ pt win God of Luck @ 11/4
3.40 The drying ground is not much use to the strong front running Al Alfa and he could well get done for toe in the latter stages. Both Wings of Smoke and Dresden are capable on this ground at this trip and the latter just gets the nod.
¼ pt ew Dresden @ 7/2
4.10 The only in form runner is The Kvillken,who is on a hat-trick, but taking a big step up in trip. Haughton’s Bridge caught the eye last time on his first run for Martin Hill. The drying ground will help and NIco De BOurnville is a very positive jockey booking.
¼ pt ew Haugton’s Bridge @ 8/1
4.40 Fairy Alisha is the only one in the field to have won a race, and she has very solid chance both down in the weights and in class, so long as she can stay this slightly longer trip.
½ pt win Fairy Alisha @ 16/1
Sedgefield- good to firm on this undulating and sharp track.
5.00 NO play in the maiden
5.30 The drying ground is good news for Dun Scaith and he could stay on just the better.
¼ pt ew Dun Scaith @ 7/2
6.00 A very winnable handicap and I’m with bottoweight Alba King, who has 3 course wins on his CV and ran a lot better than his final placing last time out.
¼ pt ew Alba King @ 8/1
6.30 If CRaigdancer can adjust to the dlightl shorter trip, the race is his. Very weak handicap.
¼ pt win Craigdancer @ 10/3
7.00 PREMIUM RACE
7.30 Yet another very weak handicap and i’m with likeable front runner Caspian Prince, who could well benefit from the drop in trip.
½ pt win Caspian prince @ 2/1
8.00 You guessed it ! Another weak handicap on a somewhat uninspirational card, but if we get the winners ,will it matter ! Supapowers has come a long way for this and if staying the slightly longer trip, the race is his.
½ pt win Superpowers @ 7/4
Wolverhampton – all weather – tapeta
6.15 PREMIUM RACE
6.45 Extremely wide open but the well drawn Sapphire Song can get a handy pitich and he sees the trip out well here.
¼ pt ew Saffire Song @ 11/2
7.15 Another wide open handicap , where again half the field could be given a shout. Limerick Lord is one of the younger runners and is a lower in the weights than when he was a good 3rd over C&D , and that gives him very decent ew claims at attractive odds.
¼ pt ew Limerick Lord @ 12/1
7.45 Yet another highly competitive handicap where agin half the field have a fair chance. Rouge Nuage always runs well here and this consistent and genuine type has a very decent ew shout tonight.
¼ pt ew Rouge Nuage @ 12/1
8.15 The short priced fav is Fool To Cry, but this one returns after a two month absence and this C&Dis brand new to her. Ice Dream ran well here over a sorter trip and is red for the extra yardage.
¼ pt ew Ice Cream @ 7/1
8.45 Welies in the water caused a bit of a shock last time out , but he’s now a lot higher in the weights and the drop in trip is against him.With both Bazooka and Bonds Gift being higher in the weights, I’m with very likeable veteran Jonnie Skull,who’s been given a chance at the weights and does run this C&D well.
¼ pt ew Jonnie Skull @ 20/1
