Selected Newton Abbot- good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.00Calum Gilhooley did very well returning from a lengthy break to chase home the prolific El Borracho and did well to get the better of a tough rival in Templepark. A penalty is never easy to carry , but with no issues regarding track, trip or ground , this young hurdler can double up .
½ pt win Calum Gilhooley @ 2/1
1.30 A number of highly rated if disappointing types compete in this seller , but the one to beat on official ratings is the front running Well De Lune , who has struggled of late, but has had some very stiff tasks . The fav is horse Force one who worryingly returns to action after only a week off and that came after a lengthy break , could be a bouncer .
¼ pt win Well De Lune @ 6/1
2.05 Dariya bounced back to form with an effortless win in a seller , but he did look good and connections have him back on the track, just three days later, suggesting they want to strike while the iron’s hot but this unreliable type is plenty short enough at the odds. Sainsbury Girl goes for the hat-trick but had to work hard last time and a further stiff penalty doesn’t help . There isn’t much early pace in this which gives Cotton End a good chance to double up for her recent C&d win despite the 7 pound hit but at the odds I’m with the consistent Dylan’s Sea Song , despite a worry this race may not be run to suit this hold up type .
¼ pt ew Dylan’s Sea Song @ 10/1
2.40 Very hard to pick from Rhythm Is A Dancer, Ballon Onabudget , Yeavering Belle and Story of Friends , as they all tick relevant boxes .
3.15 This has a very winnable look to it and worth chancing the Paul Nichols youngster Parody, proven over C&D over hurdles and worth risking over fences . Cheltenham De Vaige struggled last time under his penalty , but the Sedgefield track doesn’t suit every horse . This is tougher for Mon Palois with a penalty and switching from soft ground .
½ pt win Parody @ 7/2
3.50 Bluebell Sally wasn’t out of it when taking a late fall last time out and this slightly longer trip should suit this lively longshot .
¼ pt ew Bluebell Sally @ 12/1
Newton Abbot placepot
Selected Catterick – soft ground on this undulating and sharp track
1.40 A competitive low grade sprint and all of Macs Blessings, stronsay , Foad and Tiltilys Rock tick plenty of salient boxes . The nod goes to recent C&D winner Highland acclaim . with the 3 pound penalty not as harsh as it could be. Could lead this all the way and no issues with the ground .
¼ pt win Highland acclaim @ 4/1
2.15 This is weak and no surprise that C&D specialist Carlovian has been well supported today , especially down to a good mark and loves the mud .
¼ pt win Carlovian @ 4/1
2.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.25 Cormier made a right fist of it here last time in the mud, until getting outstayed late on .This is not a big ask and looks a most solid fav .
½ pt win Cormier @ 11/8
4.30 fox hill is certainly knocking at the door and has clear claims today as she’s effective over C&D and the mud, but 6/4 not inducement .
No advice from Ireland today
Selected Goodwood- good ground on this undulating , sharp and tricky track
2.25 This has a winnable look to it with all of the in form quartet of Croeso Cymraeg , Songo, Prince Llyr and Hill House a bit to prove on generally testing marks and a few have it to prove at the trip and this kind of track. Millions Memories very much out run his odds of 66/1 on his comeback spin when a good 3rd at Newbury and backed that up with a close 2nd at around this trip at Salisbury, so the undulations wont be an issue and this well drawn prominent racer is preferred .
½ pt ew Millions Memories @ 10/1
4.05 Royal Address sluiced in by a long old way in her first handicap at Sandown , but goes up in trip and has a massive 14 pound penalty ! This gives the consistent Different Face the edge , after two good 2nds at this trip and off around this mark of late .
½ pt win Different Face @ 15/8
4.40 This is absolutely red hot and NONE of the 7 can be safely ruled out but the massively in form Seinesatinal worth a play at nice odds despite the big penalty as his latest win came on unsuitable ground .
½ pt win Seinesational @ 7/1
5.10 This is most winnable and the back to form Abel Handy could well defy the penalty , making all over a C&d which should suit .
½ pt win Abel Handy @ 5/2
Newcastle – all weather – tapeta. The track is stiff and galloping
4.10 A short priced fav in Spanish Kiss who comes here on the back of two solid placed efforts at Lingfield, the latest in quite a deep handicap . The longer trip looks a plus but this is a demanding C&D so any chinks in his stamina will be exposed, but the stable has done well here In the past travelling the 500 mile round trip , but only one with a clear chance. I Can’t Remember ran a belter here last time but is another going up in trip, which may help , while Echo, Zabeel Star , trinity star and Sulafaat all being solid C&d form into the contest . Sulafaat was looking so hard to win with , but once getting his nose in front, he blossomed and comes here on a workable mark and tempting at very long odds despite returning from a break with no good record running fresh . Clifftop Heaven is interesting as his only run here was pretty good and has been going pretty well on turf around this trip and mark, gets the nod .
¼ pt ew Clifftop Heaven @ 14/1
4.45 The in form Indigo Lake runs in the Frankel colours and no issues with trip or mark , but a bit to prove on this surface, despite the top stable doing very well here on their long distance raids . Glan Y Gors is in the form of his life and after rattling off a hat-trick, has held his form well and has also been running very well over hurdles . He’s 4 time winner over C&D but is now on a tough mark , but in a race where most are hard to fancy , worth a play at long odds .
¼ pt ew Glan Y gors @ 18/1
5.15 The hat-trick seeking Temper Trap has to be respected under a 5 pound penalty given how lightly raced he is and open to improvement but preference is for the in form Savanna Gold, 2nd in his last two on turf and trusted on this surface for a top Southern stable with a good record here .
½ pt win Savanna Gold @5/2
5.50 This is very much there for the taking and no surprise if there’s a boilover but the consistent veteran Splash of Verve has form over C&d and wont be far away . doesn’t win many but this is very weak.
¼ pt ew Splash of Verve @ 7/1
7.50 PREMIUM RACE
8.20 On last year’s form Holloa would be a cert in another weak event as she landed a much better race over C&D off a 7 pound higher mark , but three runs this season have been very poor , starting slowly each time and showing little enthusiasm . If the first time cheekpieces have a positive effect , entitled to win this at very long odds.
¼ pt win Holloa @ 16/1
