11.40 The lightly raced youngster Owen Little has run big races in both of his handicap runs and comes here on the back of a good win at this trip at Kempton , with the consistent Smith not far behind in 2nd . Should confirm the form on a pound better terms and looks a very solid fav in a modest heat .
½ pt win Owen Little @ 11/8
12.10 The clear form horse is the admirable Brazen Akoya , 3 wins and a 2nd in his last 4 , and was particularly resolute last time . She’s up 3 pounds , which could have been worse , but all of her good runs of late have come on tapeta, but in what looks a winnable nursery and from a good draw, this prominent racer is chanced at fair odds .
¼ pt win Brazen Akoya @ 3/1
1.10 The front running Unilateralism went close in a nursery at this trip at Kempton off a mark of 81 , which represents strong form and despite not being lucky in the draw , could have the edge over King Of Ice and Kaasirr .
¼ pt win Unilateralism @ 15/8
1.45 The in form Mount Mogan for some reason has switched to a lesser stable while the short priced fav Rovaniemi is likely to struggle down in trip Top Breeze is likely to get the run of the race up front but is now on a tricky mark and may need this run returning from a break . With Global warning hard to catch right I’m chancing the reliable Benny and The Jets , returning from a year off, but has run well fresh before .
¼ pt win Benny and The Jets @ 9/2
2.15 PREMIUM RACE
2.45 Café Sydney is 3 from 3 at this track and this late player has a welcome drop in a 0 -55 and is very well handicapped . Recent form hasn’t been scintillating , but Ok , and this looks there for the taking .
¾ pt win Café Sydney @ 11/4
Selected Southwell- good to soft on this flat and sharp track
12.25 After some disappointing runs over hurdles, Cawthorne Lad was long odds in his first chase and the youngster came home by a long old way at Stratford beating a couple of very reliable yardsticks . The 11 pound hit will test but as he’s 1 from 1 over fences and the further he went the better he looked can get the better of main danger Percussion , who brings good C&d on to the table. Not for the first time , Bardd hit the frame last time, but is just 1 from 32 and that win came 3 years ago !
½ pt win Cawthorne Lad @3/1
12.55 The longer trip and softer ground is an issue for chase newcomer Une De la Seriere while Whasdastory continues to be hard to win with . good opportunity for Alpha Carinae as her best form has come at this trip .
½ pt win Alpha Carinae @ 11/4
1.25 Isolate disappointed badly 2nd race after a break and can only be watched today . light N strike sluiced in last time but has a very hefty 8 pound hit to carry in a far deeper race. Across the line has the form in the book to be dangerous but this far chase efforts not great . The nod goes to the consistent Heartbreak Kid after an encouraging comeback spin over a trip a bit too far .
¼ pt win Heartbreak Kid @ 5/1
3.00 Looks a match but as the tip has comparable form to the odds on fav Lydford and is proven here , is taken to cause a bit of an upset .
¼ pt win Midnight Centurion @ 7/4
3.30 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta , the track is stiff and galloping .
3.45 The ex- French Fine Wine was a determined winner over C&D last time in a tight finish and had all of : Lost My sock, Impressor, For peat’s Sake and Sugar Baby all close up behind . For Peat’s Sake, as usual set the pace that day with Fine Wine racing handily and an even stronger pace is assured with all of recent turf runaway winner Lordsbridge Boy , who is very unlikely winner off a very severe 8 pounds hit , Captain Corcoran and Good Night Mr Tom all known for getting busy early . Impressor has only about a length to find and is a few pounds better off and his latest run came off this career low mark and has been rated 2 stone higher in the past ! Nice longshot .
½ pt ew Impressor @ 12/1
4.45 PREMIUM RACE
5.15 Just no stopping the prolific prominent racing Proclaimer who comes here on the back of a brave win over C&D with End Zone just behind , but the 3rd horse did the form no favours next time so the 4 pound hit could just be a step too far . Broctune Red was looking a bit high in the weights, but did it very well last time over C&D and off just a 2 pound higher mark looks very solid ew , especially as a good pace is likely . Star Shield has become hard to win with but is rarely far away and is lively longshot .
½ pt ew Broctune Red @ 6/1
6.15 PREMIUM RACE
6.45 There was money for Fircombe Hill last time out and ran well to be 2nd over C&d with the well treated Paddy Power close up in 3rd and with a slight pull in the weights is the ew bet in quite a winnable heat .
½ pt ew Paddy Power @ 9/1
