Selected Yarmouth – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
1.00an open handicap and a couple of unexposed youngsters in Progressive and Dusk who race for big stables . Tronada has won 3 from 4 this season, but can’t see a win today with a 6 pound penalty and he’s a mudlark , so fast ground a major issue . Oh It’s Saucepot landed this with style last year off just a 2 pound lower mark , but since then her form has been a bit in and out but her record here stands at 2 wins and a place from 3 starts and the young jockey is good value for his 5 pound claim .
¼ pt ew Oh Its Saucepot @ 6/1
1.30 This is tight headache and understandably the lightly raced Star of Wins is the short priced fav after a smart win last time , and this longer trip looks a smart move . Looks to have the edge over more exposed rivals but 6/4 well short enough .
2.00 This looks a weak maiden and the clear form horse is Toussarok , successful on debut on the Newcastle tapeta and ran well under his penalty next time when 2nd . He should have done better next time in a nursery , but it would need newcomer Conservatoire to run to a decent level to foil the selection.
¼ pt win Toussarok @ 6/4
2.30 Kingmania looks very short at even money in what looks an open small field nursery . Ajrad has clear claims but both Majd al arab and Blue Hero’s best form is on the all weather . Sonderbar has run two solid races and on a workable mark for a stable making a 400 mile round trip .
¼ pt ew Sonderbar @ 6/1
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
3.30 Athletico just doesn’t win nowadays, full stop ! Tagovailoa brings the best form to the table and wont get a batter chance to break his duck .
½ pt Tagovailoa @ 5/2
4.00 An open finale and I like the look of one of the longshots in craigburn , a recent winner over C&d off a lower mark, but not disgraced since , and this does have a winnable look to it .
¼ pt ew Craigburn @ 12/1
Selected Redcar – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
1.15 the market is headed by 2 of the winners In the field in Victory Heights and Billian , but both could struggle with their penalties and their top form comes on stiffer tracks. Madreselva has done little wrong in three tries and is proven on speed tracks, Nicely drawn and a nice play .
1/2pt win Madreselva @ 4/1
1.45 Air To Air is a very short priced fav considering both of his runs have been on the all weather and at a shorter trip . This is not a deep nursery and well worth a play on topweight Codebook, whose on a fair mark and proven over the trip.
¼ pt win Codebook @ 9/1
2.20 Soaring Star broke his duck last time and has high hopes of the double in this winnable handicap, but it’s for apprentices and the jockey aboard has only had one ride before , and came plum last ! Zap has become hard to win with but the lightly raced Trinity Lake looks the one. Successful on debut last year and then ran a couple of good races later .he comes here on the back of a most solid effort in a big field at York and has one of the better jockeys aboard .
½ pt ew Trinity Lake @ 7/2
2.50 The lightly raced Eagle Court was held up when landing a Ponty maiden at long odds, but front ran last time at Ayr, and wasn’t beaten very far in the end and looks a very lively longshot in this winnable heat . The prolific Harry George returns from a break off a much higher mark so prefer just to watch him while Lexington Force has a bit to prove switching from the all weather , but not out of this . Spiorad has a good record here and another with claims .
¼ pt ew Eagle Court @ 14/1
3.20 This is so winnable with many of them hard to win with , as they are hold up types . an early lead is up for grabs and the fav to take them along is the well handicapped Iva reflection , who has hit the frame 3 times this season from higher marks . the wide draw is not ideal but David allen knows the time of day round here and is a very lively longshot .Kind review ran over C&D last time but that was on soft ground and likely to struggle for pace today .
½ pt ew Iva Reflection @ 22/1
3.50 This is weak and the short priced fav is Praised, who did well on turf first time out , but flopped badly next time on the all weather. Should beat these but not for me at evens .
4.20 Another weak heat and the bookies make it a match between the down in trip Desert Palms and the up in trip Mecca’s hot steps, and both had had plenty of chances . Boilover ??
4.50 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Hexham – good ground on this undulating , galloping and very stiff track
2.10 This wont take much winning , but still hard to find the winner. Achill Road Boy is in Ok form and goes well here but win record poor and the drop in trip no help. Lastofthecomics was held off his new mark last time, but that still reads pretty well in this race, but new to this kind of track . Diamond Rock ran well here last time and should be Ok over the extra yardage .
¼ pt win Diamond Rock @ 5/1
2.40 This is another weak heat and offers a good opportunity for the lightly raced Millie of Mayo to land the hat-trick despite the drop in trip and the rise in the ratings, but the stable does very well here but I can pass at evens .
3.10 Not a deep novice event and hard to look beyond the top three in the market , all of who carry penalties for recent wins . Away At Dawn made a bold bid to make all in the Cartmel mud but was touched of by Black Kraken springing a 66/1 shot , but on these terms , revenge is likely . Rhosneigr has the formto feature , but this stiff C&D may not at all be suitable and the useful Southern stable has a poor record here .
½ pt win Away At dawn @ 5/2
3.40 Champion trainer Nick Henderson sends jen’s boy on the 600 mile round trip and it’s paid off twice in just 4 tries but this one doesn’t look the type for this demanding c&D and the one who beat him last time, did little for the form next time out .Nortonthorpelegend has earned his corn over the seasons and did well enough on his comeback spin over C&d to be a factor in a winnable heat .
¼ pt ew Nortonthorpelegend @ 15/2
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.40 Despite the big field, this will take little winning and understandable that the form horse kymata is a clear fav, but this is a very different track from Market Rasen . African Glory has showed zilch in 3 novice events , but the stable is in form goes well here and stiffer test of stamina could result in a shock win.
¼ pt ew African Glory @ 20/1
5.15 The in form Return Ticket is the short priced fav, but has a poor win record and this C&D poses questions and his chief rival leapaway , was once prolific , but has been under a cloud for some time , but the top stable makes the 600 mile round trip , and is 4 from 7 here ! Both Shantalise and sianne’s star are capable of springing a surprise .
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
4.30 Astrapor is knocking on the door and has good enough form over C&d to exploit a winning opportunity from a good draw .
¼ pt win astrapor @ 3/1
4.05 The short priced fav is the in form Devils Cub , but over this C&d was behind the consistent Twentyshadesofgrey and is worse off at the weights today .The tip has been nudged up the weights and has a poor draw, but still preferred in a weak heat .
¼ pt win Twentyshadesofgrey @ 4/1
5.40 This looks destined to be fought out by Driving Force, who was a beaten fav on his debut over C&D , but still ran well, but that was 6 months ago , against witch Night a good 2nd at Lingfild, 3 months ago . Looks a toss up, but that’s not how I like to select .
6.10 Another uncompetitive maiden and it looks good for Lovers Moon , but not for me at odds on .
6.40 Myseven won well last time and reasonably handicapped switching to the all weather , while chairman Power runs in famous colours for a top stable and has to do better a one stage. Charlie Arthur is a most willing type who was just run out of it last time over C&D , going from the front and despite a nudge up the weights , could be too determined for younger rivals late on .
¼ pt win Charlie Arthur @ 7/2
