£1 trixie & £1 treble
Dancing Feet 1.15 @ 9/4
Narjes 2.45 @ 3/1
Another Dylan 1.55 @ 5/2
Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
11.45 Quite a few in form and unexposed types proven on the surface but all of Fame N Fortune, My Poem and Marions Boy are up in the ratings and in trip so prefer to play the capable Torbellino , an easy winner over C&D earlier in the year and has dropped to close to that mark .
¼ pt ew Torbellino @ 8/1
12.15 PREMIUM RACE
12.45 Veteran Pour La Victoire has responded excellently of late to the drop In the rating of late with a good win and a close 2nd of late both over C&D, but the 3 pound hit wont help, but this well drawn late player is still hard to rule out in a race where few count . In his last race he stalked the strong pace set by Man Of The Sea , and the front runner only cried enough late on and could well reverse form from a good draw and is unlikely to be harassed up front . Revolutionary Man is a tricky but talented customer and will be flying as the line approaches .
¼ pt ew Man of The Sea @ 7/1
1.15 Come on girl has an impossible task at the weights, aspiration has plenty to prove switching from soft ground turf on a tough mark while recent tapeta winner Queen’s Course is also hard to fancy with a penalty and on a surface she hasn’t shone on in the past , so I make it a match between the likely pacesetter in the in form Dancing Feet who has really taken off of late but is now on a testing mark but with Stay Classy hard to win with, gets the vote .
½ pt win Dancing Feet @ 9/4
1.45 The fav is the Godolphin newcomer Quiet Evening so impossible to know how good she is while the hard to win with Galactic Dawn goes up in trip, which may help. This is uncompetitive and despite looking hard to win with , Iris Bud is proven at the trip and surface and may even try to make all . Nice ew play .
¼ pt ew Iris Bud @ 13/2
2.15 The fav is the back to form Kodiac Harbour, but he remains hard to win with and the 2 pounds nudge wont help. Laurentia came into her last ace with 3 wins from her last 4 and an unlucky effort in the unplaced effort . I was with her last time and was surprised by the prominent ride given to this usual late player and she just did too much too early . With a more suitable ride, could gun these down late on .
¼ pt ew Laurentia @ 7/1
2.45 Junoesque made all to land a 50/1 shock over C&d last time , dropping to a very low mark and has claims off just 2 pounds higher but a young 5 pound claimer is in the saddle today and riding from the front never easy . Narjes has done well since joining this stable and was well backed last time but predictably dropped away over a trip too far . Down in the ratings and in trip , looks good to come with a late run to nail a winnable heat .
½ pt win Narjes @ 3/1
Selected Hexham – heavy ground on this undulating, galloping and very stiff track
12.25 Busypark was backed off the boards when sluicing in over C&D recently and backed that up with another demolition job in the Haydock mud, and has no penalty . The opposition is weak and looks so hard to beat. 1/3 is no use to most of us, but will certainly be of interest to some big rollers .
12.55 Asking The Answers won well last time at Ayr at this trip but the 6 pound penalty , softer ground and a very different track are all negatives, but he is one of the more consistent types in a field of mostly disappointing performers. This C&d could be too demanding for the in form Mymilan , but the likes of Crank Em Up, The Dawn Man, and Spirit of Hale have chances if on going days. Smuggler’s Stash is very in and out but does have a good record here , is on a good mark and likes the mud so has to be considered as does the lightly raced Hopefull after a couple of decent efforts this season .
¼ pt ew each Smuggler’s stash @ 16/1 Hopefull @ 25/1- why not , a small rev fc
1.55 Not a deep race and a bigger ask for C&D specialist orioninverness returning from a break on a tough mark and deep ground not his best surface . I prefer the chance of Absolute Dylan ,a solid 2nd at Uttoxeter last time but previously ran very well for a long way over a trip too far . This should be his day .
½ pt win Absoloute Dylan @ 5/2
2.25 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
3.50 Caribbean Sunset won well on debut at Lingfield making al, but is poorly drawn today and carries the dreaded penalty but this is not a deep maiden and could overcome all this, Impeach ran well over C&D on debut but not so well at Chelmsford when upped in trip . from the best of the draw, a reproduction of his first run puts him right in the picture.
¼ pt Ew Impeach @ 8/1
4.20 Another uncompetitive maiden and debut winner Maraaakiz is going to be hard to beat despite the penalty , but is odds on .
4.55 This looks the weakest of the juvenile maidens and the odds on fav is the well drawn Godolphin newcomer Highland Avenue , and nothing solid ew .
5.25 The reliable Dashing Dick has been harshly hit with a 5 pound penalty for a close 2nd at Chelmsford but at least this well drawn runner is proven at the trip and surface and again likely to run his race. The short priced fav is Rohaan , a well backed winner at Newcastle but goes up in the ratings and grade as well as trip . Not well drawn and a bit to prove on the surface. Million Reasons is on a fair mark judged on efforts here in maidens and gets the nod .
¼ pt ew Million Reasons @ 11/1
6.25 The lightly raced Amniarix sluiced in last time at Wolver , when upped in trip and a furlong further looks a smart move in a modest heat . Eponina will guarantee a true run race and Amniarix will be hard to beat but C&D regular roman Spinner is on a good mark and could surprise .
¼ pt ew Roman Spinner @ 8/1
6.55 PREMIUM RACE
7.25 Joint short priced favs in Imperium and Amtiyaz and impossible to be sure which one will come out on top and you can give a chance tp practically all of the others. Too tricky .
