Rob The Getaway 1.57 @ 11/4
Valseur Du Granval 1.40 @ 11/2
Selected Stratford – good to firm on this flat and sharp track
11.45 The consistent Wbee ticks the most boxes with this in form type looking well likely to stay this slightly further trip and has won here on good ground . Should be landing this well but just a small play considering his poor win record .
¼ pt win Wbee @ 9/4
12.15 Another most winnable race and the veteran Midnight mustang continues to defy his years and is consistently running his race All of his recent form has been on soft ground and over shorter trips , but was 2nd in this race a few seasons back on good ground at around this mark . Taboo ran a much improved race last time and is another to consider .
¼ pt win Midnight Mustang @ 9/2
12.50 The race of the day for the headless punters, 10/11 joint favs in a 2 horse race , but if you can find the right one, you’re a better man than me .
1.22 Another uncompetitive heat and Postman is consistent more than most in this and comes here on the back of a good 2nd on good ground and this longer trip should suit .
½ pt win postman @ 11/2
1.57 This looks a match between the luckless Rob The getaway and the consistent Prince llywellan but the former has the stronger form and this should be his day .
½ pt win Rob The getaway @ 11/4
2,32 A tricky small field handicap but the nod goes to recent Newton Abbot close 4th fs lola who again has conditions to suit .
¼ pt win Fs Lola @ 2/1
Selected Wincanton – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
12.00 Shantou Flyer is the very short priced fav in a modest Hunter Chase , but may have to work harder than his odds of 1/4 Suggest on fast ground and a speed track .
12.30 Looks very much a match between Billy Broncho and Air Navigator but the latte gets the nod as he runs this track very well and could make an overdue return to the Winners’ Circle .
¼ pt win Air Navigator @ 11/8
1.05 This has a winnable look to it and a return to better ground can see the prolific flat horse Manjaam take a hand on what looks a workable mark .
¼ pt ew Manjaam @ 7/1
1.40 Valseur Du granval finally too advantage of a much declining mark with a big run at market Rasen last time, finally finishing 3rd to a pair of reliable yardsticks , and should be landing this .
½ pt win Valseur Du Granval @ 5/1
2.50 On official ratings casa Loupi will take some beating in an uncompetitive novice hurdle ,but the ground and C&d may well suit the decent Confirmation Bias more and could surprise .
¼ pt win Confirmation Bias @ 11/4

Selected Newbury – good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.00Joint favs here in Enable’s half brother Derab and Snow Lantern whose dam won 4 Group 1’s ! They both made their debuts at Ascot , both a little outpaced and both coming home strong , and running to almost identical levels, so this is certainly in the balance .
1.35 PREMIUM RACE
2.10 a big field for this Group 3 and those proven at this level and off lofty ratings head the market with group 1 winner Alcohol Free the fav and of course has strong claims as do Umm Kulthum and Happy romance who weren’t far away in that race . There are a number of lightly raced types who have impressed in their runs but of yet to reach the heights of Alcohol Free . lucid dreamer is 2 from 2, runs in the Frankel colours and looks to have more to offer but I’m having a dabble on John Gosden’s wild Iris who absolutely blew the start on Newcastle’s tapets, but that didn’t stop her winning with ease. She obviously has an engine and Dettori rides .
¼ pt ew Wild Iris @ 14/1
2.45 Chindit was one of the best juveniles last year but didn’t handle the soft ground or the Newmarket track in his final outing . Before that he ran to s lofty level landing a Donny Group 2 and brings the best form to the table, Proven on the ground and this kind of C&D , looks a most solid fav .
¾ pt win Chindit @ 15/8
3.20 I like the look of a longshot in this big field as plenty will need their first run back and many are on testing marks. Gin Palace won first time out last season and held his form well off higher marks He’s 2 from 2 over C&D and looks a very lively longshot .
½ pt ew Gin Palace @ 18/1
5.05 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Ayr- good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.15 Grand sancy has struggled of late with poor jumping and the drop in trip wont help . King D’Argent is certainly a young chaser on the up and despite being a hefty 9 pounds higher than last time , he remains unexposed and looks a solid fav .
½ pt win King D’Argent @ 6/4
1.50 A stack of in form horses in this none more so than Five Star Getaway going for the 4 timer , but has a very hefty penalty , is up in trip and racing on quicker ground . Preference is fr another in form runner in One more Fleurie, 3 wins and fall in his last 4 and the way he’s been winning the stiff 6 pound hit may not stop this prominent racer who should be suited to the C&D on ground he relishes.
½ pt ew One More fleurie @ 14/1
2.25 PREMIUM RACE
3.00 Allmankind is a cracking racehorse and one of the best 2 mile novice chasers around , but this front runner goes up half a mile today , but does shape like he’ll stay well . He has a comfy buffer at the ratings .
½ pt win Allmankind @ evens
3.35 The Scottish Grand National and not as competitive as it first looks with many of these on tough marks and a preference for softer ground . Aye Right is a classy handicap chaser and runs very much that he’ll stay this trip well .
½ pt ew Aye Right @ 8/1
4.45 the return to this trip and better ground can see the consistent and fairly treated Floating Rock in the Winner’s Circle for the 4th time in 6 races !
½ pt win Floating Rock @ 5/1
