There was a fault on the website , which has only been recently restored . I’ll be doing all I can to provide the usual thorough service
Selected Newmarket – good to firm on this undulating, galloping and stiff track
1.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.00 The odds on fav Global Giant comes out best in at the ratings and is also in top form , but the strong front running Maries Diamond could take some catching over a track ideal for front running .
¼ pt win Maries Diamond @ 4/1
3.35 Saffron Beach doesn’t have the strongest form in the field but she is 2 from 2, both over C&D and proven on the ground , which is more than higher rated rivals can boast . star of Emerraty also has useful form and likely to improve for the switch to the Gosden Stable .
Selected Cheltenham – good ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
2.05 PREMIUM RACE
2.40 Captain Tom cat was an easy winner over C&d earlier in the season and returns from a break off just a 5 pound higher mark . He’s a fresh horse as he’s no use on soft ground , so conditions will suit him far more than most .
½ pt win Captain Tom Cat @ 7/2
3.50 PREMIUM RACE
4.25 Despite being on a good mark and in Ok form it was hard to be with Singlefarmpayment with his rotten win record but that didn’t stop him beating a good field and as he runs this C&d very well and good ground in his favour, can make light of the 4 pound hit .
½ pt win Singlefarmpayment @ 4/1
5.00 This has a winnable look to it as the admirably consistent Hooper would prefer a longer trip and softer ground . Youngster Elham Valley ran a blinder at the recent Festival held here with a strong finishing 3rd of 22, behind on that’s won since up in grade. He wont have the very strong pace to chase and the ground is a bit quicker, but still the one to beat .
½ pt win Elham Valley @ 5/2
Selected Beverley – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
2.15 There was plenty of money for Vintage Clarets on his debut and ran pretty well , considering he had trouble in running and was pretty green . He’ll be a lot more streetwise today and this stiff track looks a smart move . Well drawn .
½ pt win Vintage Clarets @ 5/4
4.00 PREMIUM RACE
4.35 The bang in form G For Gabrial is unpenalised for his all the way Ponty win and very well drawn to make every post a winning post .
½ pt win G For Gabrial @ 13/8
Selected Kempton- all weather -polytrack
4.40 Very few here catch the eye and the clear form horse is C&d 3rd Easy To dream , who did very well getting so close from a bad draw , finishing strongly to be beaten just a length by a couple of reliable yardsticks , Draw’s not great tonight but better, up two pounds and returns from 2 months off , but disappointing if she can’t land this modest heat.
½ pt win Easy To dream @ 9/4
5.15 Nellie Moon fully appreciated the step up to this trip with a cosy win at Lingfield and still feasibly handicapped and as she’s the only one proven at the trip gets the nod .
¼ pt win Nellie Moon @ 9/4
5.45 The front running If You Dare has the plot draw and looks likely to make every post a winning post as he brings the strongest form into the event . Isola Rossa boasts good form and is effective on the surface but returns from 5 months off and drops in trip .
½ pt win If You Dare @ 10/11
6.15 Ransom was very impressive on debut at Lingfield, but that was 10 months ago , but the top stable never rush their charges and brings the best form to the table .
½ pt win Ransom @ 15/8
6.45 Thrill Seeker continues to run well but is now on a tough mark and preference is for recent C&D close 3rd Silver Samurai, who could enjoy more luck tonight .
¼ pt win silver samurai @ 10/3
7.15 Plenty of these have done well over C&D of late and the short list is just a bit too long .
7.45 As Mister Freeze is drawn out In the car park and better known for his exploits on fibresand and recent winner treble Clef is also adversely drawn and the drop In trip no help, worth forgiving the back to form Viola Park for a below par effort last time at Chelmsford City as previously he had made all over C&D off just a pound lower , managing to get across from a wide draw , and will have to repeat that feat , but if he does, could be away and gone.
¼ p tew Viola Park @ 6/1
8.15 The short priced fav is the lightly raced Gunnerside who sluiced in at Newcastle last time , making all. He’s not assured of the lead tonight and he’s up 5 pounds and this is a very different type of track. Street Poet is best known for his exploits at Wolver but is effective here and has run some OK races against much stronger opposition than this. He’s been unlucky in the draw but still looks a player in a weak finale.
¼ pt ew Street poet @ 11/1
