Young Offender 4.07 @ 8/1
Trueshan 3.15 @ 5/2
Selected Huntingdon – good ground on this flat and galloping track
12.50 Looks very much a match but as Hurling Magic struggled very much last time on good ground second start after a break , the coast looks very clear for Raffle Ticket to win well .
¾ pt win Raffle Ticket @ 4/5
1.20 The in form Reverand Jacobs has been hit quite hard by the handicapper , but still has claims in a winnable heat . Your Darling returns from a 6 months break and the wind op is not a positive for the stable . Pawpaw landed a competitive novice event at Southwell on good ground with something to spare and despite his opening mark looking a little high , is certainly open to improvement .
½ pt win Pawpaw @ 5/1
1.55 Despite the big field not many have serious claims . ask The Lady has been quite close up in similar large fields of late, despite looking short of tactical pace and often finishing well when it’s all over . The drop in the ratings will help as will the likely strong pace and this could be her day .
¼ pt win Ask The Lady @ 4/1
2.25 Rooster Cogburn sluiced In at Market Rasen in his first chase and 2nd run after a break and certainly worried the handicapper as he’s stuck him up a hefty 9 pounds . Torrent Des Mottes was well behind that day , but it wasn’t his true running as he was one of the favs in that race, but for some reason failed to fire. All 3 career wins have come here and in a race where few appeal, looks a nice ew play .
¼ pt ew Torrent des Mottes @ 8/1
2.55 Veiled secret has been going very well over fences on good ground and off around this mark and the switch to hurdles no issue and can land a winnable heat .
¼ pt win Veiled Secret @ 9/2
Selected Worcester – good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.00Despite being on a high enough mark , Court Jurado is holding his form well and was narrowly beaten off this mark and ground last time . He’s found himself in a very winnable heat with his rivals either happier on softer ground and some having their first try over fences .Expect a prominent ride at a track which favours front runners .
½ pt win Court Jurado @ 9/2
1.30 PREMIUM RACE
2.00 This will take little winning and a chance is taken with the capable Furiously Fast , who has been doing his best on unsuitable soft ground of late and this surface will see an improved show .
¼ pt win Furiously Fast @ 15/2
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.05 Both the market fancies in Meep Meep Mag and Italian Summer return from lengthy breaks , which is never ideal while the majority of the rest are just running poorly, with no excuses . Monette is at least fit and consistent and looks like she’ll appreciate the extra yardage .
¼ pt ew Monette @ 8/1
3.35 Another race where it’s hard to fancy many . Recent Exeter winner Singapore saga is up a whopping 9 pounds and this C&D could well be too pacey for her while both The Composer and Viking Ruby return from breaks off higher marks . Peitite Power did well on his first start for Dai Burchell with a very close 2nd at Chepstow but switches to hurdles today on a more benign track , but still worth chancing in a winnable heat .
¼ pt ew Petite Power @ 10/1
4.07 Butler’s Brief won really well over C&d last time and is respected despite the rise in the ratings and grade . Mister Clarkson is inconsistent and the drop in trip unlikely to help . Young Offender did well at Uttoxeter last time on a rare try on good ground , running on very well at the end. He’s been harshly bunged up 4 pounds but still has very solid ew claims .
½ pt ew Young Offender @ 8/1
4.40 It wasn’t a great race which Nye Bevan landed last time and neither is this but still respected despite the 6 pound hit. Orchard Grove is another good ground winner last time , and did it pretty well so another respected with a penalty . Local Affair made a bold bid to make all off his reduced mark at Southwell and only tied up late on . He’s down in the ratings again and with a slightly more patient ride, should be in the picture .
¼ pt ew Local Affair @ 10/1
Selected Chester – good to soft on this flat and sharp track where undisputed front runners drawn low have a terrific record . You’d do well to go close from s high draw at any distance unless you get a handy pitch .
1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.15 Both Yibir and Maximal have not been at their best on soft ground in the past while Ontario handles the ground but stamina for this trip doubtful . Es Drama won on debut on soft ground and comes here fit from a few good runs on the all weather and is bred for this trip . Irish raider Earlswood has had few chances but the ground is in his favour and despite only running to an Ok level on his comeback spin , had plenty in the tank , but it’s El drama to land a winnable heat .
¼ pt ew El Drama @ 10/1
2.45 PREMIUM RACE
3.15 the useful Japan has a clear buffer at the ratings but he drew a blank last year and has let the side down too often to be a player today . Trueshan is a terrific racehorse, 7 wins from 11 starts and and he ended last season with a career best run in an Ascot soft ground success over 2 miles , but he’s equally adept at shorter trips and should resume with yet another win .
½ pt win Trueshan @ 5/2
3.45 First Impression is fit from a good time of it over hurdles and has the plot draw . He’s a little high in the weights but is fine on the ground and has clear claims . I’m drawn to a longshot in the very consistent Kryptos , who despite having a wide draw, likes the ground and has run well here before .Music seeker could be dangerous if able to get an early lead despite the widish draw .
¼ pt ew Kryptos @ 18/1
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
5.50 Velvet Vista has been in terrific form of late and comes here on the back of a fine on quick turf at Yarmouth and is fully effective here, but the stiff 5 pound hit wont help. Salam Ya Faisal took advantage of a reduced mark to win over C&D last time when very well backed . That wasn’t much of a race but neither is this and still capable off the new mark .
¼ pt win Salam Ya Faisal @ 7/2
6.20 Understandable the in form Arctic Vega is the fav but not well drawn and also a bit to prove around this C&d. One with nothing to prove over C&d is Bayston Hill, 5 wins and 5 places from 11 starts ! and was only denied by a short head last time and if he can defy a wide draw and get a handy early pitch , can run another big race at long odds .
¼ pt ew Bayston View @ 12/1
7.50 The capable Jack The Truth just isn’t firing of late but Scale Force has put together a very useful series of runs, but the switch to polytrack the issue . The bang in form front running Autumn Flight had Global Prospector behind when a cosy winner over C&D and can confirm the form despite the big turnaround in the weights .
½ pt win Autumn Flight @ 7/4
