Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
1.00Tricky opener and to make it a bit more difficult , it’s a handicap for amateur riders , and of course some are a lot more proficient than others . Not surprised by the money for Polar Cloud up in trip and this Newcastle winner has hinted there’s more to come. Pearly Prince was a shock winner last time , but did it easily , but despite having the services of the excellent Simon Walker is up in the ratings and trip and has the worst of the draw. Chances can be given to both Swaffam Bulbeck , a useful hurdler on a very good mark on the flat, but has actually struggled on lower marks but the stable switch could help while Percy Prosecco did better last time and is a C&D winner . The nod goes to the reliable Dream Point , mark OK and trip fine but first time on the surface .
¼ pt ew Dream Point @ 7/1
1.30 PREMIUM RACE
2.00 You could make a case for many of these but despite never having raced on the surface , Adaaydreambeliever has run well off this mark and trip and the stable does well with juveniles here .
¼ pt ew Adaaydreambeliever @ 8/1
2.35 There’s been a flood of money for winning hurdler Heartbreaker switching to the flat but Samara Star won over C&D on debut and it will be a good performance by the gamble if able to get the better of her .
½ pt win Samara Star @ 13/8
3.10 PREMIUM RACE
3,45 Not a deep race and the worthy fav is the consistent Fantaloupe , certainly on a good mark in his first handicap. New to the surface but the top stable has plenty of success here .
½ pt win Fantaloupe @ 15/8
4.15 A tricky finale and utmost respect given to the two 3yos in Lawmans Bliss and Moonlit Night who both tick plenty of boxes . Blazon is rarely far away and a return to this C&D could see an even better run .
¼ pt ew Blazon @ 9/1
Selected Hamilton – good to soft on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
1.15 All of Buckshaw Village, Ryan’s Party , Sixstar and Yeeaah has showed enough to be on the scoresheet sooner than later but preference for Rosie’s Return , who brings good form to the table and proven on ground , trip and a stiff track.
½ pt win Rosie’s Return @ 9/4
1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.15 Dapper Man goes well here and as usual will put the pace to the race , but not an ideal ride for an apprentice and also likely to have unwanted company up front. Wades Music is consistent but a weak finisher while Rose Bandit, 3 wins in her last 5 goes well here but looks just too high in the ratings now . Iris Dancer is rarely far away but wins have become elusive since a win off a 5 pound lower mark on soft ground but a close 2nd over C&D recently off a slightly higher mark reads very well , especially with softer ground in her favour .
½ pt ew Iris Dancer @13/2
2.500 Southern raider Line Of descent brings the strongest form to the table and should make no mistake .
½ pt win Line Of Descent @ 5/6
3.25 A wide open handicap but the prolific Platinumcard looks on a stiff mark with the hefty 5 pound hit while Legendary Day’s winning spree came to a halt at Newmarket off this mark , but not beaten far . Where’s Jeff is certainly back to his best and this C&D winner on similar ground remains on a fair mark . Tricorn and Amaysmount are others to consider in a competitive heat .
¼ pt ew Where’s Jeff @ 8/1
4.00 The winning chaser Muroor ran well on his first start for Tristan Davidson and today’s stiffer test will suit but the nod goes to the reliable Peerless Paddy , who looks a very solid ew play , as trip, ground, mark and track all in his favour
½ pt ew Peerless Paddy @ 11/2
Selected Carlisle – good ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
4.30 You could make a serious case for no end of these juveniles in a wide open nursery and happy to be a with a lively longshot in Just A Claim a nursery winner at Haydock and unlucky last time off this mark .
½ pt ew Just A Claim @ 22/1
5.05 Obee Jo was a comfortable winner over C&D a few starts ago and has held his form well off his new mark . Motawaazy is ultra reliable but now on a tough mark as is C&D specialist Singe Anglais .
1/2pt win Obee Jo @ 5/1
5.35 You would expect the clear form horse La Pulza to take care of these for a top Southern stable , but not for me at evens
6.05 This has a winnable look to it with many on stiff marks and all of Written Broadcast , Libby Ami , Key Look and Cool Dandy with stamina to prove around this demanding C&d. Retirement Beckons was a smart winner off a slightly lower mark a few runs back and has held his form pretty well since . Could well exploit a winnable heat .
½ pt win Retirement Beckons @ 11/2
6.35 Feel The Thunder ran a most solid race at Beverley at this trip and mark so this C&D shouldn’t be a problem and shouldn’t be far away .
¼ pt ew Feel The thunder @ 13/2
7.35 Poet’s Magic is now on a stiff mark but Makeen is likely to have his presence felt off a workable mark if coping with the drop in trip . The lightly raced Natchez Trace was a smart winner over C&D a few starts back and unlucky next time . Better chance than most .
½ pt ew Natchez Trace @ 8/1
Selected Leicester – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
4.55 Baileysgutfeeling brings the strongest form to the table and the longer trip likely to suit , but evens short enough . Rawyaan’s win came at Brighton, so a very different track today and carries the dreaded penalty .
5.25 The remarkably consistent Bonita B ran very well in a very competitive Newmarket nursery last time and should reverse Thirsk form with Hollow Steel on these terms while Galileo Glass has a stiff penalty for his Doncaster win and there’s form line giving him a bit to find with the selection .
½ pt win Bonita B @ 13/8
5.55 PREMIUM RACE
6.25 You can make a strong case for all of Boogie Time , Dulla Bhatti and Hello Zabeel, and looks in the lap of the Gods .
6.55 A very strong pace is on the cards as the badly handicapped track star Katies Kitten will try to make all as usual and Fast Medicine will join in and both Zuhair and Urban War are other prominent racers . All this will aid the late playing strong finishing Arqoob , who’s been holding his form well off his new mark .
½ pt win Arqoob @ 7/2
7.25 This looks very safely left to clear form horse Forest of Scotland as nine of the opposition are screaming to be backed .
½ pt win Forest of Scotland @ 11/10
