Selected Leicester – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
12.30 Both Nine Elms and Glint of an Eye come here on the back of good series of runs on the all weather , but this is totally different ball game on quick turf . Tanqeeb won on fast ground last season at this trip at Bath , so this track should suit and if ready to go after 3 months off , is preferred .
¼ pt win Tanqeeb @ 5/1
1.00Bellarina Lady did well on debut in what looked a deep Newmarket maiden when 2nd and should put her experience to effect , but is 1/2.
1.35 PREMIUM RACE
2.10 Only 3 go in this Listed Event and it looks a bit of a penalty kick for the useful Pogo , who has a sizeable buffer at the weights, ran well on his comeback spin last season , is likely to take them along and no ground issues and this C&D will suit . Odds look relatively generous .
¾ pt win Pogo @ 5/4
2.45 Fast turf is a novelty to ALL 4 of these .
3.20 Not a deep race and the down in grade Kinderarten Kop has no issues with trip or ground and looks a nice ew play .
¼ p tew Kindegarten Kop @ 8/1
Selected Sandown – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
1.55 All of these are prolific and consistent but this stiff track could sort hem out making recent Ascot winner Herbiers a nice ew play off just a 4 pound higher mark
¼ pt ew Herbiers @ 10/1
2.30 The very wonderful and classy Frodon looks very good to make all against inferior rivals.
¾ pt win Frodon @ 8/11
3.05 There was a time when Altior was invincible , with 20 consecutive straight wins , but he’s lost 2 of his last three and really should have done much better last time . This is an easy race to read with Henry De Bromhead’s number 2 in the field Ornua sure to bomb out which will give the stable Number 1 , the incredibly admirable Put The kettle on , an ideal strong pace to chase, as she did when winning the Cheltenham Champion 2 mile Chase . Sceau Royle was very unlucky in that race an compensation awaits on his preferred ground .
½ pt win Sceau Royale @ 5/2
3.40 A typically competitive field for this Marathon but the luckless Crosspark, 5 times a runner up in 6 runs this year is proven over C&D and the ground and will run his usual willing race despite a challenging mark . Doing Fine is a former winner of this and not out of it despite long odds .
½ pt ew Crosspark @ 14/1 ¼ pt ew Doing Fine @ 33/1 - why not a small rev fc
4.50 The progressive Killer Clown is up in the ratings again but with the ground in his favour in a winnable heat , looks a solid bet .
½ pt win Killer Clown @ 3/1
5.25 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Ripon – good to firm on this undulating and sharp track
2.40 PREMIUM RACE
3.15 The prolific Madeer has a bit of a mountain to climb switching to quick turf and Zabeel champion looks good to get the better of the hard to win with Faylaq .
½ pt win Zabeel Champion @ 5/6
3.50 Despite a nudge up the weights , hard to see past Themaxican .
½ pt win Themaxican @ 4/5
4.25 Desert Safari has a bit to prove switching to quick turf from the all weather off this mar but still respected in a winnable heat . musicka did well last time but runs here haven’t been the best . Veteran MR Lupton is still rated a worthy 103 and after an Ok comeback spin is preferred .
¼ pt win Mr Lupton @ 7/2
5.00 You would expect Artistic Rifles to go in again with a small penalty but 5/4 seems very short to me .
Selected Haydock – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
2.15 You’d expect 2/9 shot Shushan to take this with the minimum of fuss but this trip could be far enough on breeding .
2.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.25 The fav is Lady Rockstar but she’s not well drawn and the quality if her form , which came on the all weather , leaves her with a bit to find with anghaam , a good 3rd on quick turf . Some interesting newcomers also take part .
¼ pt win Anghaam @ 4/1
4.00 Hard to get overly excited about the prospects of Alabama Boy and mojandil and with the majority of the rest more potent on synthetics , a good opportunity for smart recent Lingfield winner Menai Bridge, who looks up to defying the 4 pound penalty and a winner on firm last season .
½ pt win Menai Bridge @ 4/1
4.35 Finest Sound is going to take some beating after a close 2nd last time and the 3rd horse Nugget , won easily next time out, but I can pass at odds on .
Selected Donny- good to firm on this flat and galloping track- speed track
4.10 Not a deep sprint handicap and the fav is the in form Cometh The Man , 2nd in his last two races and nudged up a few pounds and this hold up type is already looking hard to win with .The lightly raced Tees Spirit struck on his first try for the Adrian Nicholls stable in a big field handicap at Ripon , which was pretty competitive . He looks up to defying the 5 pound penalty considering how unexposed he is .
½ pt win Tees Spirit @ 9/2
4.45 Four unraced 2yos all from good stable ????
5.20 The clear form horse is Lexington Knight after two good runs , one coming over C&D. He has experience on his side but Godolphin saddle a couple and trainer bin Suroor is 5 from 5 with unraced 3yos here ! But I’m with experience .
¼ pt win Lexington Knight @ 5/2
5.55 Both Silent Hunter and Fierospeed are both in top form but both penalised switching from the all weather to quick turf . Thibaan won over C&d last season but ended the season disappointingly . He’s had a wind op which should help and runs for top connections .
¼ pt win Thibaar @ 4/1
6.30 The short priced fav is recent all weather winner Law Of One but only turf run was only Ok . Clear preference for a Star above , a winner first time out last season and also went close off around this mark .
½ pt win A Star Above @ 10/3
7.00 You would expect the in form Fairmac to deal with some modest rivals, especially going up in trip .
½ pt win Fairmac @ 6/5
7.30 A very open small field handicap but the reliable Gale Force Maya just doesn’t know how to run a bad race and could have the edge with rivals arguably more potent on the all weather . She ran well on her comeback spin and a deserved win possible .
½ pt win Gale Force Maya @ 4/1
8.00 Despite the big field few come into this with strong claims. Takeonefortheteam is better known for running well on the Kempton pollytrack, but was beaten only 2 lengths at Bath recently and has been dropped in the ratings further . lively longshot .
¼ pt ew Takeonefortheteam
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
5.10 Swinging Eddie has been in terrific form round here of late and last time was another big run when a good 2nd over a trip far enough. He’s not well drawn but has coped with adverse draws here before and drops back to his best trip which can’t be said about the back to form Street Poet , nudged up the weights and happier over a bit further .
½ pt win Swinging Eddie @ 11/2
5.45 The ex-Irish Irish Admiral brings the best form to the table and has joined the tip stable of William Haggas. The drop in trip wont help desert Emperor but Big Wing brings decent C&D form to the table and worth a dabble .
¼ pt win Big Wing @ 7/2
6.15 Track regular Spirit Of Lowdown is now on a testing mark but this looks winnable and another good run anticipated .
¼ pt win Spirit Of Lowdown @ 7/2
6.45 Nonios is not as good as he was but has a rare drop into Class 5 company and has hit the frame in all 4 tries in this grade . Nice longshot in a winnable heat . Track Hat-trick seeking Pope gregory has a bit to do up in the ratings, grade and trip .
¼ pt ew Nonios @ 16/1
7.15 Labeeb progressed very well last season and remains on a workable mark and has less to prove than most in this .
½ pt win Labeeb @ 6/4
8.15 Plenty of cash for hurdler Givepeaceachance on a good mark and over a C&d he’s run well before , but is so hard to win with . the consistent veteran star Ascending wont mind the step up in trip but preference is for recent Bath winner at this trip in Clog Na fola, as that was a competitive heat and form over C&D gives hopes off his revised mark .
½ pt win Clog Na Fola @ 11/2
