Atlantic Storm 2.30 @ 15/8
Perfect City 3.30 @ 5/2
Mistercobar 4.30 @ 7/2
Selected Stratford – good ground on this flat and sharp track
12.50 Hiconic was only modest on the flat but is 2 from 2 over hurdles but would do very well to land the hat-trick with a double penalty .
1.20 All are making their chase debuts so very possible some will improve on their hurdles form while others go backwards. With the exception of Exit plan,the whole field were decent types over timber but Leoncavello the highest rated by some way, explaining why he’s a warm order today , but not the type at all to play at short odds.

2.30 Atlantic Storm has a terrific record here and comes here on the back of a very good run in a deep Southwell handicap and will be hard to beat .
¾ pt win Atlantic Storm @ 15/8
3.00A good quality handicap and plenty can be given a chance . The nod goes to the useful C&d winner some day Soon . on a fair mark and drop in trip no real issue . You can give a good chance to the majority of the others but not keen on the chance of Gunnery off a very testing mark .
¼ pt win Some Day Soon @ 11/4
3.30 Seaborn is a very short priced fav , but his existing hurdles form is very modest . He has recently joined the good stable of Gary Moore and though rated quite high on the flat, 80, you wonder about him being able to exploit a low mark of 91 over hurdles , which is only 63 on the flat. His recent flat form is not good and the jockey Is on a long losing run and only 1 from 43 here ! So not for me at all at short odds, despite this being a weak heat . Perfect City won well recently in his first handicap and could well be up to the 7 pound hit given his inexperience and Jonjo O’Neill Jr is 4 from 9 here .
¾ pt win Perfect City @ 5/2
4.00 Jamacho returned from a lengthy absence with a smart win over C&D but the quicker ground , penalty and second run back after a break all negatives, but hard to see who can take advantage .
4.30 It’s not a deep race and a good chance for the in form mistercobar who probably found the trip too far on his comeback spin but still did enough to suggest he remains on a workable mark .
¾ pt win Mistercobar @ 7/2
5.05 There was little between Keyboard Joan and Bonnie golightly at Uttoxeter and this pair are likely to fight this out again with he former confirming form .
1/ 4 pt win Keyboard Joan @ 2/1
Selected Chepstow- good ground on this undulating , galloping and quite stiff track
1.05 A very competitive sprint with the admirable Bal Mal 4 from 4 at this trip and despite the rise in the ratings and stiffer company , can’t be ruled out. Good chances can be given to all of Tabaahy, secretfact, Zulu zander and Alba De Sole .
1.40 the form of Shobiz is way in excess of anything else and despite it being achieved on soft ground, looks sure to land very short odds.
2.15 Sun Festival ran really well on debut over C&d when a close 2nd with the rest out of sight . Compensation awaits.
¾ pt win Sun Festival @ evens
2.45 Not a deep race and a good chance for the well drawn front running Newton jack who was a good 2nd over C&d last time , and wasn’t stopping . Nudged up 2 pounds but still preferred .
¼ pt win Newton Jack @ 2/1
3.15 Eternal Blush is 2 from 2 and good chance of the hat-trick, but does go up in trip. Slight preference is for the well handicapped and in form lola Showgirl .
¼ pt win Lola showgirl @ 3/1
4.15 He hasn’t won for a few years but General Brook has run many a good race since then , often off higher marks and this C&D and wont be far away. Clear danger is youngster Scarlet Ruby who improved for handicapping at this trip for her top stable .
¼ pt ew General Brook @ 5/1
4.50 Another weak event and the odds on fav is hat-trick seeking youngster Pleasure Garden, a typical Mark Prescott 3yo, who often rattle off win sequences. He had to work quite hard to prevail last time and is a hefty 6 pounds higher , and the draw is dodgy too. The lightly raced Up The aisle ran respectably last time in her first handicap and could do better at this longer trip .
¼ pt ew Up The Aisle @ 10/1

Golden Town 6.55 @ 12/1
Secretinthepark 5.00 @ 5/1
Craneur 5.35 @ 11/1
Selected Perth – good ground on this flat and sharp track- speed track
4.10 Not overly keen on the fav in Archi’s affair who returns from a 4 months break and likely to find this tight C&d against him . Petrasar is 1 from 1 but carries the dreaded penalty and his good win came on soft ground. Happy to watch .
4.40 Im Too Generous is a likeable front runner who ran really well in his first four starts last season but flopped in his last effort when running on unsuitable soft ground once too often .He resumes on a workable mark and this C&D should be fine. Heavey ended the season with a good win on the Exeter mud, contrasting conditions today off a higher mark .
½ pt win Im Too Generous @6/1
6.20 Amalfi Doug has a terrific record both running fresh and at this track. After a good series last year he ended with a few poor runs, but he did have a hectic programme which probably caught up with him and is on a good mark over hurdles .
¼ pt win Amalfi Doug @ 5/2
6.55 Golden Town lost his way for a while but bounced bac with a 66/1 win at Sedgefield followed up by a good win over this C&d and lost nothing in defeat when a close 3rd again over C&D on ground soft enough off around this mark . He goes well fresh and could surprise in this winnable heat .
½ pt ew Golden Town @ 12/1
8.30 The likeable Pammi finally got her nose in front last time but a tough task returning from a break off a higher mark and on quicker ground. Titus Bolt is not the horse he was but ran well in all starts last year making him a nice ew play in a winnable heat .
¼ pt ew Titus bolt @ 7/1
No perth placepot
Selected Sandown – good ground on this stiff and galloping track
4.25 Not a great deal to go on and many of the likely ones are poorly drawn, Not for me .
5.00 An easy race to read with all of Secretinthepark, Our Oystercatcher and Zac Brown all sure to bomb out , so you would be usually be looking for a late player to take advantage, but none of the other three have been convincing of late. Secretinthepark can dispute and keep it going on stiff tracks and despite the tough mark, like his chance at the odds.
½ pt win Secretinthepark @ 5/1
5.35 Three Cs bubble burst big style last time off his new mark after a terrific series of 4 wins and a 2nd, but did have a hectic programme so could benefit from the rest, but is an all weather specialist and turf form poor. Sandy Steve is another all weather specialist with a bit to prove on turf while Voi has become so hard to win with, craneur ran some good races last year including a close 2nd over C&d off around this mark . He ran well for a long way in his recent comeback spin and looks a most lively longshot . Shaffire is bang in form but goes up in grade whil Engrave wasn’t disgraced last time and another longshot with a squeak .
½ pt ew Craneur @11/1
6.05 A weak heat and the short priced fav in the in form Harlow, but he’s up in the weights for a good 2nd last time and up to a trip in which he hasn’t even hit the frame in 5 tries . Isle of Wolves ran a rare bad one last time and is much more effective on easier tracks.. Nice race to swerve .
6.40 You can make a case for the majority of these so happy to play one of he longshots in Bronze River , effective at the trip, a stiff track and on a workable mark .
¼ pt ew Bronze River @ 14/1
7.15 a Class 1 for juveniles and the strongest form is brought into the race by Fev Rover who was quite a cheap purchase and his debut run was an Ok effort but belied long odds when just failing to overhaul the useful Dandalia is a Group 2 in the Newmarket mud, but on very different ground tonight has a bit to prove . Setahre has done little wrong in 2 big runs and this Royal ascot 2nd has serious claims but I give the nod to Concessions , who after a cosy debut win in a small field ran well in this grade at Newmarket .
½ pt win Concessions @ 7/1
7.45 This has very much a winnable look to it and give another chance to Manicini , who emptied out rapidly last time when looking to feature in the finish and does have the form to land this .
¼ pt win Mancini @ 7/2
