Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this undulating and quite sharp track with a long galloping straight
1.55 The fav is the front running Ragamuffin , a consistent sort who again ran his race last time but up a few pounds and not assured of having the front to himself as Ofcourseiwill took advantage of a good mark in the Bangor mud to make all, but this is unlikely to be his day on quicker ground under a penalty . Hard to get excited about many here which gives the consistent Hats Off To Larry a very decent shout. He’s a few pounds high in the ratings but stays this trip strongly and could well pick them up late on .
½ pt ew Hats Off To Larry 6/1
2.25 Youngster Kalinda made all to win last time here but over a much longer trip and lower mark and is another unlikely to have the front to himself . Two Blondes ran well on his recent comeback spin and has dropped to a really good mark and has a rare run in Class 5 .
¼ pt win Two Blondes @ 6/1
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
3.35 An ultra competitive valuable Class 1 chase and a case can be made for many but this track is the ultra gritty Minelllacelebration country as in 4 runs , he has 3 wins and a place ! He comes here on the back of another big run here when 3rd with Solomon Grey 2nd but the tip is a very healthy 9 pounds better off and the extra yardage is very much in his favour. Expect a prominent ride and another big run at his favourite track .
½ pt e w Minellacelebration @ 10/1
4.05 Quite a few possible here with Her Majesty’s Rapid Flight bringing winning form to the table and on a fair mark in his first handicap , Bagan has to be considered after a smart win last time and despite a nudge up the weights and grade is not out of this but the trip found out the consistent Dancewith Storms last time , but the wind -op could help . Garbanzo did well coming a good 4th last time but as that was his first run for a while looks bouncer material . The lightly raced Hunting Percival hasn’t been far away in all 3 handicaps and remains on a workable mark . He runs this track well and will be prominently ridden at this trip . Very nice ew play .
½ pt ew Hunting Percival @ 7/1
4.40 A wide open 2 mile chase full of in form or capable types. Miss Amelia has been massively progressive this season taking her winning mark from a lowly 78 up to a very decent 105 and did little wrong last time out at Aintree when 2nd off this mark . Has to be worth a dabble .
¼ pt win Miss Amelia @ 6/1
Selected The Curragh – good to firm on this galloping , undulating and stiff track
2.30 Cheerupsleepyjean ran a cracker at Royal Ascot at long odds but both Velocidad and Yet are unexposed so much rather watch .
2.30 There is early pace in abundance , and it’s all across the track so the draw shouldn’t be that significant . Blairmayne takes a drop in grade and he runs this track really well with 2 wins and 11 places from 20 starts ! He’s a hold up type , still on a workable mark and in the kind of form to do some damage. The ground is fine and has a good race make up for a strong finisher and Shane foley knows him very well .
½ pt ew Blairmayne @7/1
3.05 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 Santa Barbera is very highly regarded by Aidan O’Brien but was a beaten fav In both the English 1000 Guineas & Oaks , but this in between trip will suit . Cayenne Pepper ended last season disappointingly and returned with quite an encouraging effort on ground too soft . she brings the best overall form to the table , has a terrific record at the track and the ground will suit .
¼ pt win Cayenne Pepper @ 7/2
4.10 This looks a match but with match fitness assured and proven over C&d, Pondus has the edge over the hard to win with Passion .
½ pt win Pondus @ 2/1
4.45 Mosala has stamina to prove but the prolific Irish Possession has been going well over hurdles off a good mark, so not out of this . Aesop has done little wrong this season , on a workable mark and stays the trip well .
¼ pt win Aesop @ 7/2
Selected Cartmel – good ground on this flat , sharp track with a very long run in . A unique track
1.40 The joint favs are Bellaney Gem and Royal Practitioner , who bring similar form to the table but the drop in trip far from ideal on this speed track . Bumper Durragh has run to a decent level and this front runner has claims, but In a trappy race I’m with Sinndarella, who ran an OK 4th over C&d last time on this kind of ground .
¼ pt win Sindarella @ 8/1
2.10 PREMIUM RACE
2.40 The massively progressive stayer Game line has a stiff task with a massive penalty dropping in trip . Both Justforjames and Dressforsuccess have good recent track form , which counts for plenty, but preference is for the front running youngster Furius De Ciergues, who just doesn’t know how to run a bad race and despite a nudge up the weights , is preferred over a C&D which should suit.
½ pt win Furius De Ciergues @ 11/4
3.15 PREMIUM RACE
3.50 Track specialist Tontos Spirit has a massive penalty and this gutsy front runner also goes up in considerably in trip while the back to form Burbank drops in trip and Solar Impulse has never even placed at this trip . The prolific Thomas Todd is now on a tough mark so a great chance for the hat-trick for Francky Du Berlais , who’s latest win suggests strongly that he’s up to carrying the penalty .
½ pt win Francky Du Berlais
4.20 A massively open affair and a case can be made for many but the late playing Oksana comes here on a hat-trick , has the ground in her favour and only 3 pound higher for a smart win over C&D last time .
¼ pt ew Oksana @ 8/1
4.55 A fiercely competitive finale and chances can be given to all of Irish raider, the lightly raced Doune Castle, Jelski, now over a more appropriate trip and hat-trick seeking For jim but I’m with recent track winner Aptly Put who previously ran an absolute belter over C&D in a very hot Class 2 handicap when trying to make all and only beaten 3 lengths and is 2 pounds lower today .
¼ pt ew Aptly Put @ 13/2
Selected Windsor – good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.50 The consistent Danzart has a tough task with a wide draw , a stiff penalty and al good runs have been on soft ground . The lightly raced Chipstead ran a belter over C&D last time in a far better race . Could have been better drawn and up 3 pounds , but should still be good enough . Spanish Star is rarely far away but a very rare winner .
½ pt win Chipstead @ 5/2
2.20 Imperial Force has totally lost the plot and not running anywhere near his lofty mark . Flame of Freedom did well on debut but that was 2 months ago and over a longer trip . Clear preference is for the lightly raced Aylesford a smart winner at this trip and ground a Yarmouth beating one with good form . Despite the wide draw and penalty , looks the one .
½ pt win Aylesford @ 2/1
2.50 The drying ground and their lofty marks are both against Isle of Lismore and Four Adday and this looks good for useful and consistent sprinter Rebel At Dawn .
¾ pt win Rebel At Dawn @ 9/4
3.25 Chai Yo Power is the short priced fav after a good 2nd last time but Zambezi Magic was breathing down his neck in that race and is 10 times the price !
¼ pt ew Zambezi Magic @ 25/1
4.30 Serena’s Queen was a costly flop last time so can be only watched today . Morrooj is the fav but all form on stiffer tracks so this could be fought out between a couple of smart winners last time who are penalised , but looks within their range , but on this speed trakck, Arabian Romance gets the nod over Bellazdaza
¼ pt win Arabian Romance @ 7/2
5.05 An open finale but quite a few have it to prove at the trip , including the fav Glen Esk and Violet Lads is far better on the all weather . Gold Souk is going well and gets the nod .
¼ pt win Gold Souk @ 9/2
