Selected Ascot – good ground on this stiff and galloping track
1.55 The back to form veteran Just Glamorous is the surefire leader and despite having a good record over this C&d and ground, surely the 9 pound hit is too much to live with . He’s drawn low so could head for the far rails, which was the place to be yesterday so I’m looking for one with a chance drawn close by and the closest I can get is the consistent Celsius , whose progress has stalled since being elevated to this mark, but hasn’t been far away and this C&D on the ground should be fine.
1/2pt ew Celsius @ 7/1
2.30 Pretty in Grey has won her last four and was even more impressive last time switching from the all weather to win on fast ground at Newmarket, again as she pleased. The 6 pound hit looks manageable and the stiff track no issue and worth chancing on drying ground .
½ pt win Pretty in Grey @ 9/2
3.05 The lightly raced My Frankel looked smart last time and is another 3yo who could be ahead of the game .
1/2 pt win My Frankel 4/1
3.40 May Sonic comes here on a hat-trick since dropping down to this trip . This front runner has won his last two with ease and despite a hefty 9 pound hit , could still be ahead of the game . This is competitive with the strong finishing and consistent Fortamour the biggest danger .
½ pt win May Sonic @ 6/1
4.15 A wide open finale but I’m with the massively in form Queen’s Sargent , who after landing a double back down in trip , did nothing wrong at Chester when 2nd to Revich from a bad draw . He’s drawn in the right place and the energetic Megan Nicholls has a win and 3 places from 4 tries . cracking outsider .
½ pt ew Queen’s Sargent @ 18/1
Selected Haydock – very soft ground on this flat and galloping track
1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.50 This is wide open but no getting away from the consistent and most willing Rajinsky, who’s been nudged up the weights for another cracking effort last time , but his draw is Ok for a prominent racer and the return to deep ground very much in his favour .
½ pt ew Rajinsky @ 15/2
3.25 A very valuable Group 1 sprint and the fav is the classy and back to top form dream of Dreams , but struggled in this last year behind Hello Youmzain , but with the ground being more demanding than last year , this has a very open look to it with previous winner The Tin Man certainly in with a chance as are Lope Y Fernandez , Art power and golden Horne . The very likeable Glen shiel will ensure a good gallop but this is a bridge too far for him and with the tip to keep on best .
¼ pt ew Golden Horne @ 15/2
4.00 The early pace will come from the in form pair of Wonderwork and wrenthorpe , who will both enjoy the ground and are drawn on the stands rails, not a bad place to be . Track specialist Jabberockie will handle the ground and is still running well off his new mark. He’s been eased a bit in the weights today and will be plugging away from a high draw and this determined sort gets the nod . The 4 timer seeking Militia loves the ground but is drawn away from the action and now on a tough mark .
¼ pt wi Jabberockie @ 11/2
No Haydock placepot
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
2.00 A very competitive Group 3 for juveniles and from a good draw, I’m with the front running Mighty Gurkha and he is 1 from 1 on this surface . He’s been holding his form well and could take a bit of catching . Mystery Blues is the obvious danger but Cloudbridge could struggle down in trip and switching from turf.
¼ pt ew Mighty Gurkha @ 7/1
2.35 One of the all time greats , dual Arc winner Enable has her warm up race for another try in Paris and this should be little more than an exercise canter , despite all of her rivals being quite decent . She’s won this race before and will probably make all. She is 1/9, but there will still be players at these odds and 9 grand to win one is not as bad a bet as it seems .
3.45 The lightly raced Bullfinch looked good winning over C&D last time and is well drawn and on a good mark to out in another big run but I prefer the prolific Jahbath , who won 4 of his first 5 races, 3 of them over this C&D . He recently resumed duties with a couple of Ok efforts on soft turf and could show us his paces back on his fav C&D .
¼ pt win Jahbath @ 11/2
4.20 This will take little winning and a good opportunity for the in form youngster Anglo Saxson, who is effective on the surface and can see off exposed rivals .
½ pt win Anglo Saxson @ 4/1
4.55 The one that catches the eye is the lightly raced Alqifaar, a good 2nd to Bullfinch , fav for the feature handicap earlier and this prominent racer could take some catching .
¾ pt win Alqifaar @ 7/2
5.30 The hat-trick seeking Redemptive is well drawn but has a very hefty penalty and drops in trip, but not out of this modest finale . Despite the wide draw I’m with course winner Johnny Reb to make all.
¼ pt Johnny Reb @ 9/2
No advice from Ireland today
Selected Stratford – good ground on this flat and sharp track
2.25 The front running For pleasure has a double penalty , but has been winning very well, including over C&d and could be just too good for these .
½ pt win For Pleasure @ 3/1
3.35 A number of these are taking a drop into selling company and at the odds, worth a try on Flat The Max , who has much of a chance as the more fancied runners.
¼ pt ew Flat To The Max @ 16/1
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.45 The very likeable veteran Hallings Comet will give it a right go from the front but will have company from the 4 timer seeking and dual C&D winner Jamacho , hat-trick seeking El Borracho and impressive Southwell winner highly Prized , who could be up to overcoming the 10 pound hike . With so much early pace this could be set up nicely for the in form and late playing Dino Velvet , a C&D winner in the past.
¼ pt ew Dino Velvet @ 8/1
5.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
It’s a very tricky card and only having a few plays
7.30 PREMIUM RACE
9,00 Uncle Sid comes here on the back of a close 3rd over C&d off this mark and from a good draw can finally strike.
¼ pt win Uncle Sid @ 5/2
