Today’s Fortune for a fiver
15p ew Lucky !5 & 25p ew acca
Haveoneyerself 3.10 @ 9/1
Muffins For Tea 3.20 @ 7/1
Red Tornado 1.30 @ 9/1
Highwaygrey 2.00 @ 14/1
Selected Ponty – good to firm on this undulating , galloping and very stiff track
1.00The short priced fav in this very winnable opener is recent Wolver winner Dream With Me but has a hefty penalty and last season flopped badly over C&D on quick ground . First Charge has a bit to prove returning from a break off a higher mark and with stamina to prove as well as handling the ground . Glan Y Gors has been a bit in and out of late but runs this track very well and has dropped to a good mark .
¼ pt ew Glan Y Gors @ 8/1
1.30 The field is full of massively In form types from the all weather but all with plenty to prove off testing marks and switching to turf . Red Tornado came to hand quickly last season and ran a really big race here around this trip on similar ground off around this mark . Doesn’t win many nowadays , but decent opportunity today .
½ pt win Red Tornado @ 9/1
2.00 The odds on fav is the lightly raced Waldkonig but this is a deep race and he’s do very well to win . Kaleidoscope, who’d prefer softer ground , and Victory Belle will ensure a true gallop up front which will certainly help track star Highwaygrey who has 4 wins over C&D and his latest effort suggests that this mark is within range for this late player .
½ pt win HIghwaygrey @ 14/1
2.30 A real minefield this one , bestof ,luck with it .
3.30 The odds on fav is Spyctacher who ran an absolute blinder when 2nd in a Group 3 but 3 other runs decidedly ordinary, so could be one to take on . In a modest maiden , Cooperation looks an ew play for nothing .
½ pt ew Cooperation @ 5/1
4.35 Hard to fancy many in this winnable finale and I’m quite keen on the chance of Star Of St James who has been in cracking form at Southwell since being put up to this trip and can race off a 12 pound lower mark on turf , and his form on quick turf is well good enough to get involved in this .
½ pt ew Star Of St James @ 7/1
Selected Exeter – good to firm on this undulating , galloping and stiff track .
1.45 Theatre mix was only narrowly denied over C&D last time and despite a 3 pound bump up the weights , looks the solution .
¼ p win Theatre Mix @ 2/1
2.20 This looks a match between the back to form Voodoo Doll and the lightly raced Avoid DE Master , who is proven on the ground and track but first time blinkers a negative for the good stable . Should be a deserved win for the tip .
¼ pt win Voodoo Doll @ 2/1
2.50 Art Approval is a worthy short priced fav and ticks plenty of boxes .
½ pt win Art Approval @ 10/11
3.20 Strong question marks against the majority of these in terms of current form, suitability to the ground and to the trip . Muffins for Tea responded well to the drop in the ratings last time and has no issues with better ground , Looks a nice play .
½ pt win Muffins for Tea @ 7/1
3.50 The consistent Frankincense handled this kind of ground well last time . Still on a fair mark , proven at the track and longer trip looks a smart move . Midnight Aurora is either pretty good or pretty awful , off this mark I suspect the latter today .
½ pt win Frankincense @ 3/1
4.20 Looks a cakewalk for 4/9 shot Falberto .
Selected Bath – good to firm on this sharp but stiff track
2.10 PREMIUM RACE
2.40 Wonderful World brings most solid form to the table with a good 2nd at Donny and races today in a very modest maiden . This is a very different track but the stable has a good record with juveniles here .
½ pt win Wonderful World @ 6/5
3.10 Quite a tricky sprint handicap but Union Rose woyld do well the hat-trick off a tough mark and no good record running fresh . The front running Haveoneyerself comes to hand early and progressed pretty well last season including good efforts here on the ground and this kind of mark and could take a bit of catching .
½ pt win Haveoneyerself @ 9/1
4.40 PREMIUM RACE
5.10 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
5.30 Alcazan would do very well to land the double with a stiff 5 pound penalty for a win in a modest Lingfield handicap while recent track winner Bonnie Lad drops in trip but is up in the weights. The reliable Iesha suffered a narrow defeat here last time but generously stays on the same mark and extra furlong no issue .
½ pt win Iesha @ 9/2
7.00 After a smart win over C&D Count of Amazonia has held his form very well in a Class 2 event and two hot races in Meydan and should be far too good for these.
¾ pt win Count of Amazonia @ 5/4
8.30 An open finale but the veteran Something Lucky has been holding his form well in this type of race off a reduced mark and will be suited to the likely strong pace .
¼ pt ew Something Lucky @ 8/1
