Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
2.30 We know that the majority of these are modest and it offers a great opportunity for the useful hurdler in And The New , who trotted in last time off a mark of 131, which is about 90 on the flat and can compete today off just 67 . This is of course a very different test on polytrack but considering this isn’t a big ask , odds are most fair .
½ pt win And The New @ 9/4
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
3.30 Beat The Breeze is just not showing any signs of stopping his winning spree and comes here on a 4 timer and is only 4 pounds higher for a smart win over C&D last time . Returns from a break and has the worst of the draw but is preferred to the hat-trick chasing Murhib who is more exposed and now on a very stiff mark .
½ pt win Beat The Breeze @ 5/1
Selected Kelso – very soft ground on this undulating and quite sharp track with a long run in .
2.20 PREMIUM RACE
3.20 Despite the hefty 9 pound hit , Serious Ego is the one to beat against opposition struggling for form .
½ pt win Serious Ego @ 5/2
Selected Fakenham – very soft ground on this flat and sharp track
2.12 State Vision is a market springer on his first start for Dr Richard Newland but comes here on the back of two pulled ups and form on soft ground a horror story . This looks close between All Good Things, Devious Dicks Game and Kingston Mimosa who are all in good form but the latter preferred at the weights .
¼ pt win Kingston Mimosa @ 7/2
2.42 Not a deep race at all and a good opportunity for the lightly raced and down in grade Postman who comes here on the back of a couple of decent efforts in much better contests .
½ pt win Postman @ 7/2
3.43 Fire Away is one of the three which almost cost some bookies a packet when backed from 25/1 into even money and those in the know never had a moment’s worry as he sluiced home at Musselburgh by a long old way and only up 7 pounds, but in my experience , horses that are the subject of big gambles tend to be ready for the day and very few follow up , so worth taking on . Admiral Batty won really well over C&D last time in the mud and respected under a 5 pound penalty but is another who may not run his race today as he has recently returned from a lengthy absence . Premiumaccess is going very well for his top stable but the 5 pound hit wont help . The consistent Sir Jack Yeats crucially cracking C&d form in the mud and comes here in his usual good form .He has a good race make up for a prominent racer and looks a really nice ew play .
½ pt ew Sir Jack Yeats @ 8/1
Selected Dundalk- all weather – polytrack
4.00 PREMIUM RACE
5.00 No patience has s bit to prove with the penalty and dropping in trip and the likes of Betrayed , stop on Red and Baltinglass Abbey have stamina to prove. I really like the chance of the consistent Ablah , a C&d winner a few starts back and not disgraced last time when 4th in much deeper company after missing the break . Remains on a fair mark and looks a very nice play at the odds.
½ pt win Ablah @ 6/1
5.30 War Hero is holding his form very well and his latest close 4th over C&d off a slightly higher mark is good enough to take this .
½ pt win War Hero @ 9/2
6.30 A typical big field low grade handicap but a chance can be given to Maccliff , two good runs here of late and longer trip looks a smart move .
¼ pt ew Maccliff @ 8/1
7.30 All of sunset Nova, St George’s Head , admirable veteran Togoville and masalai have all been in winning form over C&D of late but now on tough marks and preference is for another C&D regular, the late playing Indians Grey, not beaten far off this mark of late.
¼ pt ew Indiana Grey @ 7/1
Selected Southwell – all weather – fibresand
5.15 Susie Javea goes for the C&D hat-trick and off just a 3 pound higher mark has to be considered . diagheliv is very hit and miss while elixsoft hasn’t done much here before . Chetan put in a good run here last time and the longer trip well in his favour . Very nice ew play.
½ pt ew Chetan @ 8/1
5.45 The hot favourite is the hat-trick chasing Mack The knife but he’s been hit with a massive penalty and crucially new to the surface , but remains unexposed and respected . this is not a deep race and off a much reduced mark , track regular going Native put in a much better effort last time , but the slightly shorter trip wont help, nevertheless, in a weak heat , longshot appeal .
¼ pt ew Going Native @ 11/1
6.15 It’s all about Tributo transferring successfully his good polytrack form to fibresand, but it is quite a big if .
6.45 Requinto Dawn was a recent winning Nap for My Premium Tip members , making all over C&D at 9/2, winning by 4 lengths and on that form the 5 pound penalty looks workable, but he did get the run of the race that day from the front and would do well to double up . the hat-trick chasing scale Force goes well here but this trip is just too far while Lord Oberon drops in trip and could struggle to get competitive ????
7.15 Three C’s got up in the shadow of the post over C&D last time and has no penalty and of course has clear claims, but this looks deeper and all of De Bruyne horse, Mister Freeze Atrafan and Fly true bring solid C&D form to the table . Too close to call and no value around .
7.45 Asdaa continues to be hard to win with while C&D winner Brains showed a bit more last time dropping In the ratings. Both Jewel Maker and Dubai acclaim have been going well at Newcastle but both new here ???
8.15 A tricky finale easy to leave alone
