Yarmouth – good to firm ground on this generally flat and galloping track
2.10 There’s been a lot of money for Noel Quinlan’s cheap newcomer Park Glen. This stable is adept at getting them ready first time and this market move has to be respected. Felix Leiter and York Express are two decent juveniles with asimilar level of form. I’ll have to have a small on on York Express at the odds.
¼ pt ew York Express @ 11/2
2.40 The Jeremy Noseda stable is having a torrid time of it of late and a lot of his intended runners have been pulled out. He runs Anna’s Vision here but even at her best she shouldn’t trouble Miss Brazil who has very reasonable quick ground form in the book. The snag with this one is that jockey Kieran O’Neill has only ridden one winner all season. Still just about worth a bet. Newcomers Apparatchik and Capelita have to be respected but would need to be pretty forward to win this.
¾ pt win Miss Brazil @ 13/8
3.15 Youngster Leaderlene made all on the all weather recently in very impressive stayle . She’s up a lot in the weights and is switching to quick turf but still looks the most likely winner but at 4/6 I’m passing.
3.50 he wont want the ground very quick but the consistent Sutton Sid has found a bit of a soft race to get an overdue win.
½ pt win Sutton Sid @ 2/1
4.25 Sbrasse has been running well in some hot races and the handicapper has kindly dropped him a few pounds and that will be enough to get him back in the winner’s circle.Hot Mustard has stamina to prove while the very honest Ocean Applause will be running on when it’s all over.
¾ pt win Sbrasse @ 3/1
5.00 Swendab, without any warning , bounced back to form last tiem. That was a strange old race and I’m still not convinced that he is back to his best. Honeymoon Express is a very genuine sort who runs this track well but is still high in the weights and this gives PortAlfred a great chance in this easier race.
¾ pt win Port Alfred @ 7/2
5.35 Refuse Colette is on fire at the moment and isn’t over penalised for her demolition job over C&D recently and she has found a very soft race in which to double up. Worth the odds play.
1.5 pts win Refuse Collette @ 8/13
Bath – firm ground on this fairly tight and stiff track
2.20 Not a strong opener by any stretch of the imagination and it gives King Calypso a great opportunity to double up against some very modest rivals.
1.25 pts win King Calypso @ 7/4
2.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.25 Both probable front runners Homeboy and Mlonty Fay have been pulled out and this enhances the claims of Birdie Queen . She will probably have onlt West Coast Dream to chase and this one will have enough by the final furlong. Birdie Queen certainly ran well enough here last time and has a far better race make-up. Comptonspirit and Catalinas Diamond are both hold up performers who run well here on quick ground. They could fill the places at decent odds.

The dandy Yank has major claims returning to a stiff track and it’s going to be very close between him and Vodka Chaser as they finished 1 & 2 in a Leicester handicap recently and at the weights it’s hard to call. However their form is way in advance of their two rivals and it looks a great f/c
1pt Rev F/c The Dandy Yank - Vodka Chaser
4.35 Two useful juveniles go head to head here. Snap Shots has been taken on some very smart company and Zeb Un Nisa is also a decent filly. The latter is the fairly strong fav and I’m having a little on Snap Shot to make all and jenny Powell’s 7 pound claim looks vital.
1/2pt win Snap Shots @ 13/8
5.10 BONUS FORECAST RACE Spray Tan came back to form big style when nibbled at in the market.This is not a strong handicap and he could easily double up despite his poor draw. Molly Jones wasn’t far away and has handy weight pull and the wide draw will suit her racing style . Revenge day.

Freddy Q is thefav but when he wins we can afford to lose. This is another gamble from the Newcombe stable, which very rarely come off. It just pushes out others with decent chances. I’m with Glens Wobbly who certain ly has improved this season and this is his fav C&D and he goes very wel on fast ground. Kelpie Blitz could well find this trip a bit far while Arlecchino was well outpointed at this trip last time out. Cabuchon goes well here and looks good for the F/c

2.00 The fav El Che has been pulled out because of the ground and surprisingly Profitable is the odds on fav and this one’s form is not as strong as the promising Renaissant who looks a really good bet at these odds.

2.30 This is wide open and you couldn’t really rule any of them out.Norse Star gets this trip and has recently had the snip , which could bring a bit of progress. I tipped up Snow Squall last week when he won with ease, but this is a much tougher assignment .
1/4pt win Norse Star @ 10/1
3.00 The race of the day , The Class 1 Juvenlie and the short priced fav is Alonsoa, who is 1 from 1 but the form isn’t earth shattering and this quicker ground could well be problematical. The whole field is lightly raced and open to improvement but the ones that catch my eye are Bonnie Grey, Mary Macphee, who are both 20/1 !! and Lady Moscou, but this one was pulled out of a race yesterday on a vet’s certificate !! Bonnie Grey ran well in a class 1 last time at Newmarket and suggested that this longer trip would suit.
½ pt ew Bonnie Grey @ 20/1
3.40 Alex Vino is the fav but he’s at his best on slower ground and could fins this all happening too quick. Dandy is on a jat-trick and will give it a real go from the front but could just get outstayed by prominent racer Epic Battle .

At this trip Hesbaan can get a deserved first win over likely fav Conquerant.

4.5o Global Leader did it well last time but is up in the weights and has to beat this stiffer track.Intomist is going well but is high inthe weights and I’m going for the in form Eastern Dragon who will not be far away.

Doncaster- good ground on this flat and quick track
5.45 Bold Spirit has the best form but already has the look of a professional loser and may get touched off again. Mad Endeavour stepped up on his first run and a bit more improvement can see him in the shake up. Inflection made a decent debut on the all weather a few months ago and is another for the mix. Country Drive hasn’t been seen for almost a year and if she could reproduce that form would go close. After all that I’m going for the newcomer Synergise, whose trainer is in very good form and can get them ready first time.
½ pt win Synergise @ 4/1
6.15 Biting Bullets had a very hard task onn his debut at Royal Ascot but shaped ok and then chased home a decent one at Bath . He was running on well at the end and this longer trip looks to be to his advantage. Both the newcomers Shamsazing and Phantasmo are well enterd up in the near future and should both be pretty good while Basateen run at Newmarket was a good one but has much quicker ground tonight. Biting Bullets was an expensive oruchase for the small stable and is worth an interest.

7.20 Maraayill is down in trip and up in the weights and in this tough contest that pushes him off the shortlist. Syrian Pearl is on a 4 timer and did it very easily last time and could easily do it again tonight. Khatiba is not out of this but probably could do with a stiffer test of stamina. I’m going for Munfallet who is well handicapped and the slightly slower ground and longer trip are both in his favour after a god run here last time out.

7.55 Youngster Etaab is on a hat-trick and doesn’t have much to beat and is one for odds on backers.

8.30 Tower Power is still a bit high in the weights but at least tonight’s track will suit more than tough Pontefract. Artistic Muse has gone Ok in maidens and looks feasibly handicapped on his handicap debut. I’m with Frosty The Snowman who is in fine form and has a great deal in his favour.
¾ pt win Frosty The Snowman @ 7/2
9.00 I’m not playing in the finale .All of : Mr Snoozy, Tindaro, Snowy Dawn, Deepsand, Merchant of venice, Nanton and Keep Calm have excellent chances . One thing for certain, nothing is going to run away with this .
Lingfield – all weather – polyrack
5.30 Lourmain did it well last time and is fairly weighted ijn this nursery but I’m with One Moment who disappointed last time but her other form is strong enough to warrant consideration off this handicap mark. She is bred for the surface and the stable has a good record with runners blinkered for the first time.

Gallant front runner Bertie Blu Boy returns after a 4 month break and if none the worse for his lay off could make all. He is more likely to need the run and will set this up for the finishers.For Shia And Lula is in fine form and should get first crack at Bertie but I give the nod to the well drawn Perfect Pastime who will have the race to suit. Cyflymder has been hammered by the handicapper and looks unlikely to figure from a bad draw.

7.40 We haven’t seen Maverick Wave for almost a year and has the form the figure if none the worse for the absence, but it is a worry and puts me off. It’s not a strong race and Reedcutter has been mixing it in some tough races and is well handicapped to return to winning ways on a surface he likes.
¾ pt ew Reedcutter @ 9/2
8.10 A cracking sprint with loads of pace on . Brother Tiger, Dissent and Rigoletto all want tom lead and could well go off too quick and set this up fir the finishers which include Multitask and Seek the Fair Land. These two have he perfect make up but I give the nod to Langley Vale who is well drawn and well handicapped and could get the nod in what will be an exciting finish.
