Selected Nottingham – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
1.15 PREMIUM RACE
1.50 Bedford Flyer did well last time going with a strong pace in the York mud and only weakened late on finishing just behind Imperium Blue And Hey Mr , and has a pull in the weights and a slightly shorter trip, which is in his favour . He’ll try to make all but the usual cheekpieces are missing but could take some catching with Will Buick in the saddle . The lightly raced Fantasy Master goes for the hat-trick and has overcome slow starts to win well both times , the most recent over C&D in the mud, but is 6 pounds higher and the 2nd horse did little for the form next time out.
¼ pt win Bedford Flyer @ 7/2
2.20 PREMIUM RACE
2.50 A very open small field stayers handicap and I’m prepared to overlook a rare bad one from the usually ultra reliable Orin swift , who finished tailed off behind Land Of winter in the Goodwood mud last time , but was entitled to run to form and go close. He did dispute too strong a pace that day and with a more prudent ride can give us a good run for out money at nice odds.
¼ pt ew Orin Swift @ 9/1
No advice from Ireland today
Selected Fakenham – good ground on this flat and very sharp track
1.02 After a winning debut in a Chepstow bumper , Plenty in the Tank was sold to notable connections for £75,000 and has joined the powerful stable of Olly Murphy , who places his horses to effect here and looks a most solid fav .
¾ pt win Plenty in the Tank @ evens
1.32 Despite being on a high enough mark , Princeton Royale runs this C&D very well and is likely to make all and not see another rival against very modest opposition .
¾ pt win Princeton Royale @ 7/4
2.32 The consistent Vinnie Royale is likely to appreciate the longer trip but is a bit of a pushover in the finish . Stubborn Logic hasn’t been with David Pipe that long and did well last time and the longer trip could well help.
¼ pt win Stubborn Logic @ 11/2
3.02 After a good win in the Ludlow mud , Mick Pastor ran really well in the Cheltenham Festival only giving best late on . This is a very different track and has much faster ground to contend with but the top stable places their horses very well, but at 4/7 , happy to watch
3.32 Jackson’s Hill is ultra consistent and comes here on the back of an excellent 2nd at Plumpton on quick ground , which is certainly race winning form in this winnable heat , but he remains a maiden and the jockey is struggling for success too , but hard to see what can spoil his day .
¼ pt win Jacksons Hill @ 11/4
Selected Taunton – good to firm on this flat and sharp track
1.40 A big field for conditional jockeys and a lot of the riders do struggle for winners. The bang in form Knight Commander is improving and despite another 9 pound hit, is clearly thriving , but on paper would do well to win . Christopher Robin won well at this trip at Southwell and has held is form well since going up in trip and the young jockey had his moment of glory at the weekend riding a winner at Cheltenham/ Level Of intensity has a chance but looking at his profile is more likely to run a bad one than good while Hanadi is just 3 pounds higher for a good win last time ,but the drop in trip not ideal .
¼ pt win Christopher Robin @ 9/2
2.10 Celestial Force is going well but the double penalty will take some overcoming. The Ex_irish Caddyhill made a bold bid to make all at Hereford , and was only narrowly beaten , This C&D should suit well and could take some catching .
¼ pt win Caddyhill @ 3/1
2.40 PREMIUM RACE
3.10 friend or Foe went close on his comeback spin recently , but statistically, this front runner is strong candidate to bounce, leaving this with an open look. Get Back Get Back, foreign Secretary and Andaleep are closely matched but the tip is the play at the odds in a tricky event .
¼ pt ew Foreign Secretary @ 12/1
3.40 PREMIUM RACE
4.10 earth Leader was mightily prolific in points and Hunter chases last season and goes handicapping on a very fair mark , especially joining the good stable of Harry Fry . He does like to front run and may well be put out of his stride by the in form pair of From The Heart and Schnabel who also like to front run . Dido is a reliable type and this hold up type will appreciate today’s longer trip .
¼ pt ew Dido @ 7/1

Selected Kempton , all weather – polytrack
4.15 A shocker of an opener and if you’re looking for recent winning form from any of these , you have to search hard, but Sparkling Diamond did land one 5 runs back , but is severely unfavoured by the weights on official ratings, but few of these are running anywhere near their marks. The possible exception is the once useful Aces who hasn’t been disgraced in far stronger races of late and worth a dabble .
¼ pt win Aces @ 5/1
4.45 Lyns Boy is the short priced fav after a couple of good runs in nurseries off this mark one over C&D when 2 lengths behind Toptime . but 4 pounds better off so could get revenge but olivia Mary was close behind from a bad draw and has run well since and appeals at juicy odds in a race likely to be run to suit this late player .
½ pt ew Olivia Mary @ 11/1
5.15 Grey Sparkle was a ready winner over C&D last time but has a hefty penalty and goes up in grade. This is not a deep heat and a clear chance can be given to the lightly raced Sharsted who after a couple of Ok efforts in turf maidens did as well as could have been expected when 3rd behind the useful Operatic and first Smile who sluiced in next time , the run coming over C&D. The only goncern is that the good stable of David Menuisier has a shocking record here , but is well drawn and the in form Jason Watson rides.
½ pt ew Sharsted @ 10/1
5.45 This is very weak and a golden chance for the consistent Capriolette to nail an overdue win .
½ pt win Capriolette @ 9/4
6.15 I’ve been with Takeonefortheteam the last twice over C&D but on the first occasion Eddie Greatrex went too early and next time came too late . Could be third time lucky for this late player very effective over C&D and on a workable mark .
½ pt ew Takeonefortheteam @ 6/1
8.15 The vast majority of these find getting their noses in front very tough so well worth a try with the lightly raced Sincerity , a good 3rd at Newcastle last time seen 7 weeks ago . Nicely drawn and worth risking on the surface at such long odds.
¼ pt ew sincerity @ 14/1
