True Hero 5.20 @ 9/4
Mutamadad 5.05 @ 5/2
Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
1.00The fav is Sergeant Tibbs who has run two mighty races at Kempton of late in red hot company . but the longer trip is a worry. Moliwood did very well on his debut at this trip when 4th on turf while Breakfastatiffanys has OK form on the surface and looks likely to appreciate the longer trip . Newcomer Golden Viola is with a stable who has made a good start to the season ????
1.30 A very open race with a stack of in form runners in Tahitian Prince , Enough Already , Billhilly , Accomplice and Princess Animale , and most of these proven here . The late playing Catch My Breath has dropped back to a good mark and this dual C&D winner could well have an ideal strong pace to wait off .
¼ pt ew Catch My breath @ 7/1
2.00 PREMIUM RACE
2.30 the fav is the useful Al saariyah , who tries this surface for the first time and has been unlucky in the draw, but still respected . Mr trick brings useful surface form to the table and is just preferred .
¼ pt win Mr trick @ 5/1
3.00 Shecando was a cosy winner over Lady Florence over C&D recently and in a modest heat look sure to fight out the finish again , and despite the revised weights, I expect the result to be the same.
½ pt win Shecandoo @ 9/4
Selected Redcar- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
1.40 Not a great deal to go on in this juvenile seller but Call Annie ran Ok in a Class 4 event and had a few behind her , running on well at the end and worth a dabble .
¼ pt win Call Annie @ 5/1
2.10 Aunt agatha ran a solid race on debut recently and that form is good to land this.
¼ pt win Aunt Agatha @ 9/4
2.40 Clevelys has only ever run on a soft surface so preference in a modest maiden for Mcgivern after a promising effort on debut last season .
¼ pt win Mcgivern @ 3/1
3.15 This looks very much a match between smart Wetherby winner Cosmos raj , who may well be up to the 6 pound hit but preference for the downgraded Celestial Queen after a decent effort in a big field Donny maiden giving signs this longer trip will suit .
¼ pt win Celestial Queen @ 3/1
3.50 PREMIUM RACE
4.25 Not a great race and likely to be fought out by a pair of veterans who have both seen better days but still running to an Ok level and I prefer Yuften over Mythical Madness.
¼ pt win Yuften @ 4/1
Selected Musselburgh – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
2.50 Perfect Soldier was a surprise winner here last time making all and despite the drop in trip and the 3 pound hit , has found a soft race and the double could be on .
¼ pt win Perfect Soldier @ 7/2
3.25 Bluella was another surprise winner last time on quick turf at Catterick , in the van throughout and staying on well . Just a pound higher today and decent prospects of the double from a good draw .
¼ pt win Bluella @ 3/1
4.35 PREMIUM RACE
5.05 There was little between Propriety and Mutamaded at Beverley but the former did get the run of the race up front , which is unlikely today and as the tip has run very well since and is a C&D winner, gets a confident vote .
½ pt win Mutamaded @ 5/2
3 £1 doubles & £2 treble
Some Neck 4.50 @ 5/2
Flooring Porter 5.25 @ 9/4
Misty Daze 7.05 @ 7/4
Selected Punchestown – good to soft on this undulating and galloping track
3.40 Another massive field in a Punchestown handicap but as the majority of these would prefer softer ground, not that many with strong claims . Five helmets was a decent and likeable sort on the flat and has got his act together good style of late coming here on a hat-trick and racing for a respected stable .the 8 pound hit is a concern but makes the short list . Misty Millie has the ground in her favour and also good C&D form so makes the short list too along with the consistent filly Rock Chica after a solid 3rd on similar ground off around this mark last time .Splitting my stake .
¼ pt ew each Misty Millie @ 16/1 Rock Chica @ 9/1
4.15 Another massive field but the stand out piece of form belongs to the luckless Entoucas , who’s hit the bar frequently of late and came so close at the Cheltenham Festival when denied by a short head and off just a 2 pound higher mark can gain due reward .
¾ pt win Entoucas @ 4/1
4.50 A cross Country event and Some Neck has proven himself useful in this sphere and was 3rd at Cheltenham , just ahead of Alpha Des Obeaux , but as he has run well over this particular Cross country track, as they are all different , could be comfortably clear of that rival today.
½ pt win Some Neck @ 5/2
5.25 What a Fairy Story for the very excellent Flooring Porter . A switch to front running saw him destroy a big field at Naas and after landing a Leopardstown Grade 1 , landed the Cheltenham stayers last time , when nothing could get close to him . Expect him to run these into the ground again , but may have a bit of unwanted company up front early on, but more fool them .
½ pt win Flooting Porter @ 9/4
6.00 Yet another massive field handicap with quite a few unproven at the trip . The consistent Capodano ticks plenty of boxes being in form and proven over the trip and ground fine as is mark . The progressive Max flamingo was very impressive last time and makes the short list but the nod goes to the well treated dallas des pictons who has the ground and trip in his favour and ran very well at Cheltenham .
¼ pt ew Dallas Des Pictons @ 16/1
6.35 the prolific Energume is going to take some beating but is 1/3 !
7.05 The lightly raced front running Magic Daze ran a mighty race at Cheltenham with Gauloise well behind and looks good to probably make every post a winning post.
½ pt win Magic Daze @ 7/4
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
5.10 Tippy Toes brings solid form to the table and is the only one In the field with vital experience . barging Thru and King of Speed are newcomers from respected stable . Tippy Toes is only even money , so easy to pass.
5.40 A very tough runner handicap to sort out with all of them going up in trip and all three from top stables and unexposed .
6.10 PREMIUM RACE
6.40 Happy Romance was most prolific last season running to a good level but signed off with a tame run and her recent comeback spin was even worse, but she’s in much calmer waters here, but is new to the surface and has a bad draw. Michal Star looked good landing a double last year and ended with a try ingroup company which proved to be inconclusive on the heavy ground , but didn’t do badly . She’s better qualified than most in this and a nice ew play .
¼ pt ew Michal Star @ 7/1
7.15 Arij gained due reward for a series of valiant efforts in defeat with a clear victory at Wolver , but has been stuck up a severe 8 pounds ! Dawaan took his time reaching peak form last year but ended with a smart win over C&d and if ready to go, has claims off just a 4 pound higher mark . Tritonic was the fav for The Triumph Hurdle but the track and ground didn’t suit , but this useful dual purpose type is on a fair mark and gets the nod .
¼ pt win tritonic @ 7/2
7.45 The likeable Final Fantasy goes for the hat-trick after two Kempton wins over shorter . The 2 pound hit could have been worse and likely to stay the extra yardage . Not a deep heat .
¼ pt win Final Fantasy @ 5/2
Chelmsford City placepot
Selected Southwell – all weather – fibresand
5.20 true Hero has put together a cracking series if runs and comes here on the back of an excellent 2nd behind Stars In The night, who went on to complete a hat-trick off much higher marks. He’s only 2 pounds higher, well drawn , and another win looks on .
¾ pt win True Hero @ 15/8
6.55 The odds on fav is Join Forces who brings the best form to the table but has been off the track for 3 months and new to this specialist surface. Kevin The Minion has been very in and out but does have a good run over C&D on his CV and the switch to the Ivan Furtado stable, which does very well here could be the answer .
½ pt win Kevin The minion @ 7/1
7.25 You could give a chance to most of these in this marathon but track specialist Tynecastle Park is proven at this trip and on a fair mark.
¼ pt win Tynecastle Park @ 9/2
7.55 A very open big field handicap but Oud Metha Bridge is proven over C&d , is on a workable mark and has a very rare pop into Class 6 company where his record stands at 2 wins from 3 tries !
¼ pt ew Oud Metha Bridge @ 11/1
8.25 There’s a stack of early pace in this which wont help those up front, which include Crazy spin, De Bruyne horse and The retriever , but those played more patiently should have the call . Send In The Clowns is one of the least exposed in the field and stayed on well to win over C&D last time , and the 3 pound hit could have been worse . Mister Freeze is a regular here and if often placed but wins hard to come by , but this late player has a good race make up and will be flying late on.
¼ pt win Send In The clowns @ 7/2
