You wont be skint after he's won. Skint has huge chance in the big race at Sandown , the 3.15 @ 33/1
Meydan- good ground on turf,. All weather- tapeta
1.10 He's no saint is certainly on the up but he's up in trip today and trying this surface for the first time, but the trip looks more of a concern. In a weak race Emirates Flyer looks a very solid fav
1.75 pts win Emirates Flyer @ 6/4
1.45 A cracking sprint and top clas sprinter Sgea shea is reasonably priced to double up i his win in this last year.
1.5 pts win shea shea @ 7/4
2.25 PREMIUM RACE
3.00 Unbeaten Variety Club is the odds on fav in this good field , he is the probable winner but Forjatt is a real big improver and though new to this surface is well worth a bet in the context of other challengers
1/2 ptew Forjatt @ 14/1
3.35 Quite a few of these are trying this trip for the first time and it looks more in hope than stratagy. Meandre has held his form well and ran a cracker over C&D in a hit handicap froman equally bad draw. His old rival Empoli is better drawn and is the Fc horse.
1/2ptew Meandre @ 10/1
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.45 Mars has yet to show the kind of form he showed for Aidan O'Brien , but you couldn't rule him out as he's with a top stable now. Trade Strom takes a few runs to hit his peak and he has the form over C&d to make him the one to beat. Vercingatorix is unbeaten and is the obvious danger.
1pt win Trade Storm @ 7/2
Sandown - soft ground on this stiff track
1.30 Carry On Sydney was only 2 nd last time in a big field atwincanton, but the ground was so nad that day that the field went very sowly and it turned into a sprint. That wont happen today and he has little to beat and looks a very solid fav.
1.5 pts win Carry On Sydney @ 13/8.
2.05 A cracking contest full of very promising and successful types. You ca give at least half of the field a chance but I like Goohar, who beat the decent desoto County at Haydock and todays stiffertest should reallly suit and he's a big price for his chance.
1/4 ptew goofar @ 16/1
2.40 A difficut handicap. Soll has disappointed twice this season but on his best form is a big contender on a track he likes. Merrion Square is running well off this mark and is another contender .Kasbadaldi is a lightly raced sort but certainly has a decent chance at this trip. Bottom weight Goring One is well weighted and wont be far away. Noble Legend is better at shorter while Howards legacy hasn't been at his best of late and De La Bech is still a bit high in the weights. the well handicapped Chartreus looked a winner last time until falling in the latterstages and he can put that right today.
3/4 pt win Chartreux @ 4/1
3.15 The Imperial Cup and bookies favourite horse Regal Encore runs again. he still hasn't hit the heights and is still not a fluent hurdler for a race of this type. He does have an engine though and can't be ruled out. Swing Bowler continues to run well and wont be faraway despite top weight. New years Eve is on a hat-trick but does have a lot more to do, as do both Baltimore Rock and Haristown. I'm going for the bottom weight Skint. He is well weighted, in very decent for and runs tis C&d really well. he ould wel provide the shock of the day
3/4 ptew Skint @ 33/1
3.50 A top bumper . Pitter Patter has stamona to prove over this longer trip. Tara Mist is a useful bumper and is the one to beat but Nicky Henderson has trained may winners of this and his representative Side Step could take revenge over Tara mist over this stiffer test.
3/4 ptew Side Step @ 7/1
4.25 PREMIUM RACE
5.00 PREMIUM RACE
Ayr- very heavy ground on this flat and fair track
1.55 Moonlight Ladis the fav but he fialied miserably over this trip last time and can be taken on. I Need Gold is running at a god level, but very decent chaser Full Jack, tries hurdles, he likes heavy ground and his price is massive for his chance.
3/4 pt win Full Jack @ 7/1
2.30 This concerns only the 6/4 jont favs See Double You and too Cool To Fool . They are hard to split and there's no value in a bet
3.05 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 A very tough handicap and tough mare Little glenshee, can carry big weights in the mud and can jst get the better of Irish raiderroamntic Fashion.
1/2 pt win Little glenshee @ 3/1
4.15 BEST FORECAST RACE
A tricky stayers handicap. The fav is Samstown and he's a very strong stayer but a coule of these are better weighted and also like the ground. Etxalar is a real favourite of mine but he's now high in the weights and he needs stiffer track. It's between Fentata and Mister Philson. They are hard to split and this is my best forecast of the day.
1/2 pt Rev Fc Mister philson - Fentara
4.50 You couldn't rule any of the 5 out but the drop in trip and in the weights gives outsider Master of the hall, more of a chnace than his odds suggest.
1/2pt win Master of the Hall @ 9/1
5.25 The Unsub ran really well over C&d on heavy ground and that form is really good . It would take something special from a newcomer to thwart him winning today.
2pts win The Unsub @ 5/4
Chepstow- heavy ground on this undulating track
2.10 Master todd was puled up last time and this lightly raced type can only be watched at the moment. Allo Dalow has the best form but this longer trip could well find him out . Robbers Rost ran better last time and is bred for this trip and the groud is no problem.
1/2 pt win Robbers Roost @ 3/1
2.45 Bob Ford is now the very short fav and he's bee puled up in his last 2 runs !! But he is the best of the 3 as neither Danners nor Strike Fast are in much form.
3.20 None of these are in reat form but it's worth forgiving Batu ferringhi his last run when an early mistake knpcked him effectively out of the contest. His earlierwin in a novice hurdle on heavy ground is the best on offer.
1/2 pt win Batu Ferringhi @ 5/1
3.55 Consigliere has found his level of late and he remains well weighted and looks a very solid fav in this handicp chase.
1pt win Consigliere @ 6/4
4.30 PREMIUM RACE
5.05 He's bee off for a bit, and is better over fences, but his is a weak handicap hurdle and Bendant runs this track very well and looks the value bet .
1/2 pt ew Bendant @ 7/1
5.35 He's now 16 years old and he's still running well enough for another win. Victory Gunner has won at this track 5 times and relishes th ehavy ground. he ran really well in a handicap last time and has every chance today. Camden is coming down the weights and on his best form would have a chance. Ballylifen held every chance in a simlar race over C&D but couldn't sustain. Barton Gift is still improving but would do wel to win in this class.
3/4 pt ew Victory Gunner @ 7/1
Wolverhampton - all weather -polytrack ( but riding slow)
2.20 A cracing opener , a class 1 . Alben Starhas stamina to prove while Bertiwhwittle has never bee here. Chookie Royal is a real track specilist but nt at this trip not in this clas. Hasopop ran reall well in a hot tace at Lingfield and he is most likely ot show improved form on this slower surface. Keny's Powre can't be ruled out .
3/4 pt win Hasopop @ 4/1
2.55 Another cracking race, a Class 2 handicap. Many here with chances including the lightly raced improving Fashion Line, but this is a step up in class. Noble Citizen has ratted up a hat-trcik at Southwell, but can't be ruled out of this. Star Links is high enough in the weights while the much improved Alfred Hutchinson has been set a very tough task by the handicapper. tellevoi bounced back to form last time at Lingfield and he's better at this track and is the tip
1/2 pt ew Tellevoi @ 14/1
3.30 Only concerns 2 here. Tarrafal ran well on debut here , but it wasrun at a crawl and Anipa, on her first run for Roger Varian has the stronger form and is worth a bet at these ods.
1.25 pts win Anipa @ 6/4
4.05 A very tight claimer . Come On Dave is favoured by the weights and he'll ry to make all but may well find tis track against hi, Quality Art came back to form last time with an excellent 2nd in handicap and on that form is way overpriced for this race
1/2 pt win Quality Art @ 10/1
4.40 Very tough handicap. Trojan Rocket is on a hat-trcik and even thoug he's up in the weights, none of his rivals fir the make up of the race.
1/2 pt win trojan Rcket @ 3/1
5.15 Most of these are trying a longer trip and it should bring abut improvement in the lightly raced Sargesse , who's been running well off this mark and showed regaulr progress.
1.25 pts win Sagesse @ 7/2
5.45 Marco Botti has a strong hand in this running the fav and 2nd fav, in Meaning of Life and Euro Charline, both of these have good chances. Mon Petit Secret won only amodest race here last time , but dod it well and has more improvement on only her 3rd run. I'm going for Beautiful Strangerwho wo at Southwell last time and the weight rise could have been harsher and this track wont be a problem
1/2 pt ew Beautiful stranger@ 7/1
Gowran Oark - soft ground on this undulating track
2.25 BIG HIT
Blow The Doors off has everything in his favour and is way ahead of his rivals.
2.25 pts wijn Blow The Doors Off @ evens
3.00 Sizng Granite looks another good fav and doesn't have much to beat.
2pts win Sizing Granite @ 13/8
3.35 This is wide open and handicap debutant Garri Rua has been running well enough to give him a decent chance off this handicap mark.
1/2 pt ew Garri Rua @ 10/1
4.10 Another very tricky handicap and the slightly better ground should give the consitent Followmeuptocarlow a better to chance to get his head in front. Zakarya has more to do at the weights gong down in trip while Treat yourself is up in the weights and trying a longer trip
1/2 pt ew Followmeuptocarlow @ 6/1
4.45 This should be easy for odds on shot Abbey Lane and the rest are much of a muchness and there's no ew alternative.
1.25 pts win Abbey Lane @ 8/11
5.20 Davy In Milan has beem in grrat form between the flags but has more to do in this contst which concerns really only Qul esprit, who disappointed last time and the very reliable Burren River. The latter gets the nod.
3/4 pt win Burren River
5.50 These are all pont to pointers tryng a bumper and it's impossible to get a handle on thse formlines . NO Bet
