Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
1.00A weak opener and despite being 4 pound higher for an all the way win over C&D last time . Russco hasn’t had many chances and could follow up , especially with little early pace in competition .
½ pt win Russco @ 9/4
1.35 Sir mark Prescott is a master of giving horses with middle distance pedigrees a light time as a 2yo, running over unsuitable trips, getting a low handicap mark and every season he has many running up sequences . Duke Of Prussia was letting the side down and was a costly beaten fav a few times but started at good odds in his first try handicapping on tapeta and destroyed a pretty competitive field by a long looking 6 lengths and in a lesser heat , the 5 pound penalty wont be stopping him , but is odds on .
2.45 The lightly raced pair of Tarrob and Prioritise head the market and both tick many boxes but the back to form Asdaa looks a very good ew play . He got back on the scoresheet with a clear win at Musselburgh and backed that up with a most respectable on the Lingfield polytrack finishing alongside some in form types, off this mark . He’s proven here and promises not to far away .
½ pt ew Asdaa @ 9/1

3.55 If you’re looking for a 1 in any of these recent form figures don’t waste your time as they all have problems getting their noses in front . The flying Precious Plum runs this C&D very well and well drawn for a front runner but usually needs a run or two after a break of this length . Island Memory has run a couple of big races over C&d, the latest when this hold up type was beaten only 2 lengths in a far better race than this and the likely strong pace will certainly help . Cracking longshot .

Selected Ffos Las – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
1.55 Whistledown did it nicely at Nottingham on quick ground so this C&D shouldn’t be a problem and with a long way back to the 3rd , the form looks good and can double up in this modest nursery despite a 6 pound hit .
½ pt win Whistledown @ 6/5
3.40 The trip is too far for the in form Gilt Edge and for Sweet Pursuit , Port Noir is badly handicapped and Give Em The slip is hard to win with and fast ground an issue , all this presents the well bred Siyata to get off the mark .
½ pt win Siyata @ 11/4
4.15 The drop in trip wont help the fav Hespiris , who’s high enough in the ratings now . In a race where few count, the consistent Beowulf can get reward for some good runs at this trip, ground and mark .
½ pt win Beowulf @ 3/1
4.45 You can give a chance to most of these but the in form Anjella is high enough In the ratings and grade . Asadjumeira has a 4 pound penalty but is 1 from 1 at this trip when doing it well on fast ground at Nottingham so has ideal conditions .
½ pt win Asadjumeira @ 15/8

Selected Nottingham – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
5.45 This trip is on the short side for Bezza’s Boy and the grade will test but the other 4 all have solid claims and at the odds, the late playing Outrage is overpriced for a clear chance and worth a dabble in an open heat .
¼ pt win Outrage @ 13/2
6.15 Both Red Flyer and Norman Kindu have a bit to prove after recent lack lustre efforts but the other 3 all have claims. The fav is the lightly raced Crystal Guard , a strong finishing 2nd at Brighton on quick ground , but if he needs a further 4 furlongs to travel and on a more galloping track is his problem . Fandabidozi is rarely far away , remains on a workable mark and no issues with this kind of C&D and quick turf and likely to be front rank and after a series of placed efforts a deserved win can drop his way . Desert Quest ran very well last time at Thirsk at this trip and ground and despite going up in trip, is the danger .
½ pt win Fansabidozi @ 11/4
6.45 tricky stuff with both recent winners Whitwell and De Mazaro going up in trip but both look like they’ll stay and carry only small penalties . They could have this to themselves and the front running Whitwell gets the nod .
¼ pt win Whitwell @ 5/2
7.50 Admirable Lad is admirably consistent but keeps getting nudged up the weights making wins more elusive, but despite that he’s found himself in a very soft race and a deserved win very likely .
½ pt win Admirable Lad @ 11/8
8.20 Only four go and great chance for the front running Mahanakhon Power to turn over the short priced fav Contrast ,likely to struggle with a penalty and on quick turf . Tip should be away and gone and a good bet .
3/4 pt win Mahanakhon Power @ 3/1
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
6.05 The fav is the well drawn and consistent Breezyandbright but all good runs have come on turf and runs on this surface thus far , forgettable. The well drawn Twice As Likely has dropped to a good mark and in this apprentice handicap will be well handled by Tyler heard. He was a close 6th over C&d a few runs back when given too much to do and finished alongside Tarseekh , who will again run his race but as Richard Hughes has a terrific record here in 3yo and upwards handicaps . 7 wins from 14 tries, gets the nod . Pina Collada has run some big races over C&D but is hard to predict
½ pt ew Twice As Likely @ 4/1
6.35 A tough task for Manhattanville with a penalty , a drop in trip and switching from tapeta while Gift Horse a bit to prove up in trip. Mystery Fox was a warm order on debut but this very expensive juvenile was just too green to do himself justice. He’s had 2 months off and should be landing this but happy to watch at short odds from a bad draw.
7.05 A good quality Class 2 sprint and the nod goes to the much improved May sonic , who has taken his form to a new level since hold up tactics employed and runs this C&D well. Now a tough mark but just preferred .
¼ pt win May Sonic @ 11/4

8.10 Long tradition looks a very solid fav against this opposition and looks hard to beat .
