Zeyzoun 2.10 @ 9/1
New Day 2.55 @ 12/1
Atomic Jack 3.30 @ 12/1
Selected Brighton – good ground on this undulating , sharp and very tricky track .
12.30 The fav is the in form Cobra Eye but the nudge up the weights wont help and neither will the drop in trip . Last time he was narrowly denied with Moveonup 3 lengths behind, who tried to make all but weakened late on . He’s 4 pounds better off , nicely drawn and the drop In trip will suit , so worth a dabble . This is pretty open but Big time Maybe and Swell Song are very hard to win with while Wiff Waff has been well supported today but the drop in trip wont help .Tomahawk Ridge also has the form to be involved .
¼ pt ew Moveonup @ 13/2
2.10 The admirably consistent Rainbow Mirage is the fav but is up 3 pounds , has a bad draw and this longer trip no help . Not much early pace in this which will help the front running Zeyzoun , a close 3rd over C&d last time off this much reduced mark . Hasn’t won for a while but this is certainly more about quantity than quality .
¼ pt ew Zeyzoun @ 9/1
2.45 Lankaran looked good last time and is with a top stable and in an uncompetitive maiden has stronger form than the only two dangers in deny Knowledge and Jewel in My crown .
½ pt win Lankaran @ 5/4
3.20 Widaad was a strong finishing winner in the Newmarket mud last time but could struggle with the penalty on drying ground up in trip on this tricky track .De Vegas Kid has a cracking record here and is back down to his last winning mark .
¼ pt win De Vegas Kid @ 11/2
3.55 A big field low quality event and the fav is the in form Aiguilette and has the form to feature but the wide draw wont help . Dew You Believe was a close 4th at Wolver last time and is with a stable who rarely has runners In this grade . Nicely drawn and worth a dabble in a most winnable heat.
¼ pt ew Dew You believe @ 8/1
4.25 The longer trip and the penalty is no help for recent winner Gold Souk while the lightly raced Alchemystique has a bit to prove switching from the all weather , sharply up in the ratings and trip. Question mark also against Fascinating lips up in trip and the ratings while the fav Ravens Ark has never shone on turf . Be Fair is back to his best trip and was a close 4th in a big field at Donny recently off a slightly higher mark .
¼ pt ew Be Fair @ 8/1
Selected Nottingham – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
2.20 Understandable that Legendary Day is a warm order after a close 2nd in the Windsor mud in a handicap at this trip , but at odds on , I can pass.
2.55 The soft ground is the key factor and the in form fav Horsefly didn’t do well on an easy surface previously so happy to look elsewhere . The admirable Omany Amber has only had one run on turf, which was on soft ground but is now on a stiff mark for his good runs on tapeta, so another hard to fancy . There’s been money for Mysticka today but had every chance over C&d last time on easy ground and was well beaten. New day has OK form on soft ground and wasn’t far behind Horsefly in a Kempton maiden and better off at the weights and this looks her trip .
½ pt ew New Day @ 12/1
3.30 This is very open but the short priced fav is recent winner Cochise , who gave the impression he could be ahead of the game for his top stable . Chances can be given to all of Elham Valley , Call My Bluff, Warranty and Contrabasse but the nod goes to the capable Atomic Jack , no issues with ground , trip or returning from a break .
¼ pt ew Atomic Jack @ 12/1
4.00 Quite a few dark horses in this who have yet to race on ground this soft so I’m sticking with what we know as recent Ripon winner Velocistar is a real mudlark and could be up to the 6 pound hit .
¼ pt Velocistar @ 9/2
Selected Wolver- all weather – tapeta
1.20 A wide open stayers handicap for amateur riders , and chances can be given to many . Clifftop Heaven had the luxury of an easy lead here last time but was picked up late on by the strong finishing abel Tasman, who did very well to win coming from way back . Both have been nudged up the weights and with other front runners in the field , this may well not be Clifftop Heaven’s day , but Abel Tasman has a good race make up for a late player . wemyss Point is a marathon horse so could struggle at the trip around this sharp track while Tinsmith rarely sees the racetrack but form good enough to feature. Frame Rate is a consistent soul but wins are elusive but runs this C&D well and has a good jockey aboard.
¼ pt ew Frame Rate @ 10/1
1.55 Not hard being negative about the market leaders as both Ooh Is It and Anjella both drop in trip and both often struggle for early pace . Nacho did well over C&D last time but the wide draw a problem especially with Nagasaki Dream inside of him , who’s run pretty well here of late and this early pacer could well just take to the drop in trip . High Security has run some decent races on turf of late off higher marks and is another to consider .
¼ pt ew Nagasaki Dream @ 14/1
2.30 Good Earth comes here on a hat-trick , both wins in handicap company so a bit worrying that he drops into a claimer . Clearly the one to beat at the weights is the reliable veteran Doc Sportello ,successful over C&d in a similar event recently running to his mark . Obtuse has disappointed of late but a return to his best form makes him a contender .
¼ pt win Doc Sportello @ 5/2
3.40 The consistent Soyounique is proven at the trip and track and despite a nudge up the weights is taken to land this despite the wide draw.
¼ pt win Soyonique @ 9/4
4.10 A right crackerjack of a Class 3 handicap and you could do worse than following al of these throughout the season . Great King was hugely impressive at Newcastle and is the worthy fav while Ilza’eem is another to impress and another on a fair mark . At the odds I’m having a tickle on C&d specialist , the prolific Final Voyage at nice odds. The other four are all hard to rule out.
¼ pt ew Final Voyage @ 9/1
4.45 Not a deep race and the form horse is Diamonds At Dusk after a good run at Chelmsford City and this longer trip should suit .
¼ pt win Diamonds At Dusk @ 5/1
5.15 The short priced fav is the Sir Mark Prescott trained The Tide Turns , and this trainer regularly introduces lightly raced 3yos on attractive marks now racing over a more appropriate trip . Blue Beret could struggle at this longer trip but Fragrant Storm is certainly considered giving the impression this trip will suit . Tequila Tequila was a good 2nd on turf at Windsor last time at this trip and has run well on this surface before .
½ pt ew Tequila Tequla @ 8/1
Selected Huntingdon – good ground and this flat and galloping track
4.55 Finistere did little wrong when trying to make all at Southwell on good ground just being touched off by one who went close in a handicap next time and the 3rd horse at Southwell gives the form a most solid look and looks a most solid fav .
¾ pt win Finistere evens
5.25 PREMIUM RACE
5.55 This will take very little winning and despite a nudge up the weights, Iconic Muddle should be too good .
¼ pt win Iconic Muddle @ 15/8
6.55 Another most winnable race with Jolly Maker very hard to win with and quicker ground no real help while Catlow put in an improved display last time but that was 2 months ago and reliability not a strong point . Air Hair Lair did well at Stratford when 2nd in quite a big field and that would be enough to take this .
¼ pt win Air Hair Lair @ 11/2
7.25 Coeur Seven goes for the hat-trick but returns from a 2 months break , on a 12 pound higher mark and drying ground no real help . the longer trip will test Good Boy Bobby but Stoney Mountain is very interesting . He’s had a light time of it and ran an OK race in a hot Aintree handicap last time . This is chunks easier and ground in his favour .
½ pt win Stoney Mountain @ 5/2
Selected Hexham – very soft ground on this undulating, galloping and very stiff track .
5.35 Treshnish was massively unlucky over C&d last time , falling at the last with the race sewn up with Mah Mate Bob back in 3rd , but with a big pull in the weights and on deeper ground, revenge is entirely possible. First Revolution is closely matched with treshnish and is another with a good weight pull but soft ground not his thing .
¼ pt win Mah Mate Bob @ 4/1
6.35 PREMIUM RACE
