50p ew trixie & 50p ew treble
Asdaa 2.50 @ 8/1
Junoesque 3.25 @ 6/1
Cherry Cola 4.30 @ 9/2
Selected Carlisle – good to soft on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
1.00Korker is a very short priced fav after a cracking debut run on easy ground at York , but the close up 3rd let the form down yesterday so this may not be a straight forward as it looks . There was little between Bay Breeze and Ninky Nok over C&D on this ground on their debut runs and either of these could give the fav something to think about.
1.35 PREMIUM RACE
2.10 A highly competitive Class 4 3yo handicap sprint and the fav is Hey Mr , a good 3rd on his comeback spin on ground too quick and will appreciate getting his toe in today and the mark looks OK, but how will he cope with this stiff track and the top stable has a very modest record here . Chances can be given to all of Night On earth , Cottam Lane and Dream Composer , but the nod goes to Secret Handsheikh who last time showed he wasn’t just a fibresand specialist with a close 3rd on fast ground at Ayr and both this stiffer track and softer ground should help .
¼ pt win Secret Handsheikh @ 6/1
2.40 Another tricky sprint handicap but recent winner Soapys Sister would do very well to follow up down in trip and up in grade and the ratings . The luckless Yukon Mission , 2nd or 3rd in 12 of her 15 races , comes here in her usual good form , but the 3 pound hit makes life even harder . The fav is Shepherds Way , effective on the ground but mark a bit high and track could be too severe . Fox Hill hasn’t been at her best this season but is entitled to get the better of the fav on Haydock form last season and this kind of track fine.
¼ pt win Fox Hill @ 8/1
3.15 It’s not a deep race and Iris Dancer would do well to follow up a soft ground win at Ripon with a stiff 6 pound penalty , and that wasn’t the greatest of races . The in form Time Has Wings has a bit to prove on the ground so Im chancing the lightly raced Porth Diana, who showed promise last time suggesting both this track and softer ground will help .
¼ pt win Porth Diana @ 6/1
3.45 Miss Trixie is the form horse but it was a modest soft ground event when she was 2nd at Lingfield , and this is a very different kind of track . Acquisitor showed promise last time and is another who could be well suited to he ground and track.
¼ pt win Acquisitor @ 9/2
Selected Yarmouth – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.25 PREMIUM RACE
2.00 Papa Cocktail is a big market springer from 20/1 into 10/3, for quite a small stable .
2.30 The two form horses are Breccia and Kemari , who both did well on debut , and are hard to split, but Ballantruan ran well over C&d last time and looks a solid ew play .
¼ pt ew Ballantruan @ 7/1
3.05 Short priced fav in the well related Sea Karats after a good run in Class 1 company last time but Title will put up stern opposition as will Immerman , who chased a subsequent good winner at Chester and both C&D and ground will suit .
¼ p tew Immelman @ 5/1
3.35 King Viktor goes for the 4 timer but two runs back at this trip at Windsor was all out off a 1o pound lower mark , so could be vulnerable, despite this not being competitive . Harrier Hawk has been showing up well of late and runs like this longer trip will suit .
¼ pt win Harrier Hawk @ 5/1
4.10 A very uncompetitive handicap and despite a stiff 5 penalty for a win here on similar ground, the ultra reliable Aria Rose may just get away with it against modest opposition .
¼ pt win Aria Rose @ 5/2
4.45 Another uncompetitive heat but a big ask for hat-trick seeking Billhilly with a stiff 6 pound penalty which presents Timetable with a decent chance of doubling up his Newmarket win, in a good race and should be up to the 4 pound hit . Both dalanjujo and Goddess of Fire are entitled to run well.
¼ pt win Timetable @ 2/1
5.20 A very open finale but I’ve been watching the late playing Roca Magica of late and she’s in the kind of form to nab this late on and is a C&D winner .
¼ pt ew Roca Magica @ 7/1
Selected Brighton – good to firm on this undulating , sharp and tricky track
1,45 The ones with the best form are Bolton Abbey and Super Cub , but best runs on soft ground . Newcomer Hatsheput is a market springer , but the stable’s record here with 2yos is poor .
2.20 This is wide open and clear chances can be given to Typhoon Ten and course specialist Mamillius and Street Parade has been going well of late , including over C&D , but is on a long losing run . Brunel Charm makes little appeal switching from the all weather down in trip while recent C&d winner Desert Land struggles in this grade. Sir oliver went close in a fast ground handicap at Redcar and that just gives him the nod .
¼ pt win Super Oliver @ 6/1
2.50 The clear fav is the downgraded and consistent Rosa Gold but this Sharp C&d unlikely to suit . Asdaa is hard to catch right and is on a long losing run , but ran well on fast turf at Nottingham a few starts back off a higher mark and in an uncompetitive event could take advantage of a career low mark for top trainer Mark Johnston who does well making the 600 mile round trip .
¼ pt ew Asdaa @ 8/1
3.25 All of these are struggling for a win but track specialist Junoesque is well drawn for a prominent racer and though her form is a bit mixed of late , is back on a very good mark .
¼ pt win Junoesque @ 6/1
3.55 A very weak handicap and understandable that Dawn View is the fav after a win here last time and only 2 pounds higher and ,longer trip should be OK . Trying to find one to beat her , but can’t .
¼ pt win Dawn View @ 9/4
4.30 Another race full of nearly men and the consistent yet frustrating Ivaquestion went close over C&D last time off this mark but faster ground today will test . Preference is for the back to form Cherry Cola, who likes fast ground and on a good mark , but tricky track an unknown
5.00 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Stratford – good ground on this flat and sharp track
5.10 Ecu de Noviere has a massive advantage at the ratings but has had little racing of late and returns from another 7 months off . Trip no issue, but not for me at short odds.
5.45 You would expect Virak to land this but drying ground not ideal .
6.20 The irish raider Vaucelet has to be of interest despite a lot to do at the ratings . The joint favs are the useful fumet D’ourdaires , who does take a big step up in trip and the prolific Premier Magic, , who could find the ground a bit quick . The consistent I’m Wiser now is 2 from 2 here and comes here in fine form and chanced at long odds over this longer trip .
¼ pt ew I’m Wiser Now @ 14/1
6.55 Some useful Hunters in this Class 2 but at the ratings , the in form Bob and Co is the one to beat.
½ pt win Bob And Co @ 11/8
7.30 The useful and prolific Alkala is worth opposing down in trip with the in form course winner Clondaw Westie .
¼ pt win Clondaw Westie @ 7/2
Selected Haydock – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
5.35 The veteran Dance King comes here in fine form off his reduced mark and this late player can land this late on with ground no issue.
½ pt win Dance King @ 10/3
6.10 Eileendover was the even money fav in the Mares Bumper at Cheltenham , but after holding every chance finished a disappointing 4th . Some of her earlier wins were breathtaking and is of course a fascinating contender on the flat but preference for thousand Oaks after a good 2nd on debut at Kempton and bred for the mud .
¼ pt win Thousand Oaks @ 4/1
6.45 Hard to get a handle on this 2yo race with the experienced ones just Ok and some interesting newcomers , one of which in Sea King has been very well backed
7.20 Highfield Princess is a terrific racehorse , always running her race and will probably try and make all and has a good make up for a front runner . Soft ground and trip no issues but presently on a stiff mark , but this looks winnable .
¼ pt win Highfield Princess @ 5/2
7.55 Not a deep sprint and the in form Dream Together has a good race make up for a front runner, likes soft ground and still not badly handicapped .
¼ pt win Dream Together @ 2/1
Selected Ponty – soft ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
6.00 None of these are really banging on the door, but the well treated Irv has showed more of late and no issue with C&d or conditions .
¼ pt win Irv @ 11/4
6.35 Looks a match between Skyrunner and Follow your Heart and both are taking a steep drop in trip .
7.10 A fascinating Class 2 for 2yos , with 4 winners in the field in few tries and hard to balance that form . Nice race to watch .
7.45 The short priced fav is the in form hurdler Cormier but he does return to the flat on a stiff enough mark .
8.15 This looks a match between the last time out winners in Myrsticka and Maxine and both are penalised 6 pounds buy Maxine’s win came on soft ground at Bath so this stiff track should suit , and her victory was a right demolition job and she goes up by 6 pounds tomorrow whatever happens tonight . Looks hard to beat .
¾ pt win Maxine @ 5/4
8.45 A very tricky sprint handicap but the downgraded Bosipop gets the nod , proven at the track and on the ground .
¼ pt win Bossipop @ 9/2
