Selected Nottingham – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
2.35 Music Seeker continues to run well and has optimum conditions on a C&d he runs well . He likes to dominate , which may not be that easy today with Balzac in the field, but this honest type looks likely to run his race and is a solid ew alternative to the hat-trick seeking , progressive but heavily penalised Vulcan.
¼ pt ew Music Seeker @ 6/1

4.20 Wrenthorpe is 3 from 4 over C&D , all on deep ground and despite now having to operate on a stiff mark , makes most appeal . He likes to be front rank and will have company from the back to form Just Glamorous and Case Key, but on this speed track should have the legs of them . The hat-trick seeking Shepherds way has a stiff penalty to overcome but has the ground in his favour and also this late player will have a great race make up with a strong pace most likely . He has also been winning as he liked , but marginally prefer the tip .
¼ pt win Wrenthorpe @ 11/2
5.20 The well treated Lydiate Lady comes here on the back of a big run in the Catterick mud , when badly drawn and only just missing out . This C&d is sure to be front rank and looks most solid ew in a winnable finale and can be an overdue winner for the small stable .
½ pt ew Lydiate Lady @ 6/1
No advice from Punchestown today
Selected Bath – good to soft on this sharp but stiff track
1.40 Spanish City was only on a fair mark when bolting up in the Leicester mud last time out , but the 6 pound hit will surely test as will the wide draw . Youngster Sarah’s Hope is very consistent and this well drawn prominent racer has no issues with the ground and track but the slightly longer trip a worry, but still appeals at nice odds.
¼ pt ew sarah’s Hope @ 8/1
3.20 A good quality Class 1 stayers event for fillies and on official ratings , not much between the very tough and likeable Makawee, Irish raider Traisha and the in form Vivionn , but the softer ground is not ideal for the latter. Irish raiders are never easy to ignore .
¼ pt win Traisha @ 9/2
3.55 Quel destin is a 150 rated hurdler , which is about 105 on the flat , so It was understandable that he was the odds on fav for this last year off a mark of just 66, , but could only manage 3rd, beaten 2 lengths and is 2 pound higher today . Just goes to show what a good hurdler he is. He again is a short priced fav and despite this looking a weaker event , still hard to be with the fav at short odds. The front running Tin Fandango is on a fair mark and he’ll give us a good run for our money at long odds.
¼ pt ew Tin Fandango @ 33/1
4.30 my lady Claire was an easy winner of a modest event over C&d on similar ground then backed that up with a good win on the Kempton polytrack , both times winning really well. She looks capable of defying the 5 pound penalty and worth sticking worth .
½ pt win My Lady Claire @ 13/2

Selected Wetherby – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
2.25 None of these have ever jumped a fence in anger but on hurdles ratings, it’s a 3 horse war between Champagne well, who could find the trip too sharp and ended the season with a tired looking pulled up, the progressive Shan Blue and the useful and consistent One night In Milan , who is a half brother to Gold Cup winner Native River . He goes well fresh , is fine over this type of C&D, but has been easy to back today but very hard to ignore at the odds.
¾ pt win One Night in Milan @ 4/1
3.35 Plenty of unexposed and promising types in this Class 4 hurdle but like the look of Martinhal, a late faller when going well in an Irish point and looked good when landing a bumper very well running to a good level .
¼ pt win Martinhal @ 10/3
4.10 The youngster almazar Garde was progressive last season but ended up on a testing mark and took a few runs to get going . Schiehallion munro won 3 from 4 last season and was a good 2nd in the other . He starts the season on a 9 pound higher mark but remains unexposed and could well maintain his progress .
½ pt win Schiehallion Munro @ 6/1
4.45 A wide open stayers handicap and the consistent Justatenner is not out of this despite long odds.
¼ pt ew Justa tenner @ 20/1
5.15 A strong pace is on the cards with the likeable and well treated but sadly out of form Theflyingportrait sure to go on as is Havana Hermano , who struggled off this new marl last time . Most of these have difficulty getting their noses in front so chancing recent winner Destined To shine , who came off a similar strong pace to win well last time and worth a try despite the hefty penalty .
¼ pt win Destined To Shine @ 4/1
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
4.25 The fav is the hard to win with Winnetka and the drop in trip unlikely to change his fortunes . Veteran Englishman hit a purple patch in the Spring and showed his turn was not far away with a good 2nd over C&d recently . Nicely drawn and a very nice play .
½ pt ew Englishman @ 11/1
4.55 Lorna Cole has a habit of popping in when least expected and that was the case last time out with a good win over C&D , but the 5 pound hit wont help. The front running Sir Rodneyredblood ran well again over C&D last time and if securing an early lead , could take a bit of catching .
½ pt win Sir Rodneyredblood @ 4/1

7.30 Chloellie has a terrific record round here and comes here in fine form as she finally nailed one on turf and backed that up with a good effort over C&D from a bad draw and another good effort likely tonight .
¼ pt win Chloellie @ 9/2
8.30 Itmakesyouthink certainly has two ways of running but does tend to sparkle over this C&D and is only 2 pounds higher for a recent C&D win from a bad draw. This wont take much winning .
¼ pt Win Itmakesyouthink @ 5/1
