Selected Sedgefield – good ground on this undulating and sharp track

1.00The fav is the form horse Aubis Walk , but question marks against on drying ground . Laura Morgan is a very much up and coming trainer and saddles recent Southwell 3rd Western Jill , and the form of that race has worked out well with the winner going in again and the placed horses also running well . She was the fav for that race , and considering that was her first try over hurdles , there was confidence behind her . Newcomer Jamaicaine runs in famous colours for a good stable and is the unknown quantity as her only ever run was about a year ago on the flat in France in the mud . Like the chance of the tip.

1/2pt win  Western Jill @ 5/2

1.30 The handicapper now looks in charge with Big Changes while the consistent Trac has to overcome a massive 9 pound hike . Quiet Flow has run well over C&D before and comes here on the back of a narrow defeat at Southwell on good ground . Cruelly he’s been shoved up 4 pounds , but could still have the edge in a winnable heat .

1/4pt win  Quiet Flow @5/2

2.05 Both Ballynagran and Sir Apollo need soft ground to be at their best which opens the door for Henry Brown , very much at home on a sound surface.

1/4pt win Henry Brown @ 7/2

3.50 Recent winner Gandhi Maker has both a stiff penalty to overcome as well as switching to quicker ground , In an uncompetitive heat , Dondiam has showed sufficient in few chances over fences to land this . Ground no issue .

1/2pt win  Dondian @ 2/1

Huntingdon – good ground on this flat and galloping track

Advice only , no tips

1.40 Hard to rule any of the 4 out, very tricky stuff .

2.15 Easy peasy for 1/4 shot Samuel Spade.

2.50 Should be odds on shot Blue Beach.

3.25 The 5 timer seeking Blue Shark finds himself in a very winnable race . Penalty not overburdening but drying ground not ideal .

4.00 a right conundrum with William Cody, Rooster Cogburn and Tip Top Mountain all now on stiff marks .

Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta

1.50 It remains to be seen if the form horse , Like A Lion is as effective on this more benign track. It’s not a deep race and dual course winner Fieldsman showed he’s still capable with a recent close 4th at Wolver . Dropped in the ratings , well drawn and in this race for apprentices , is partnered by his regular jockey . Lovely ew play .

1/2pt ew Fieldsman @ 9/1

2.25 What an amazing series of runs by the prolific and admirably consistent Walking On Clouds, 5 wins and 2 seconds in his last 7 races ! The handicapper has got stuck in and was a close 2nd at Wolver , off a 6 pound lower mark and last time off the same mark landed a modest contest down in trip . He’d do very well to go in again and preference is for the luckless Intervention , a prolific sort last season , 7 wins ! but nothing this season as the handicapper appears to have him where he wants him , but was only beaten a short head by another prolific sort in Justcallmepete , and despite being 2 pounds higher , this isn’t deep and Oisin Murphy rides.

1/2pt win Intervention  @ 11/4

3.35 Hickory is 3 from 3 . His new mark looks manageable but does try tapeta for the first time . Chola Empire looked good coming off the pace to win easily over C&D a few starts ago , but the handicapper finally seems to have got a grip of the prolific track specialist Justcallmepete . Eligible is a potent force over C&D , but a change of jockey not ideal for this late player ????

 Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping .

5.00 Looks very much a match but the consistent Dinoo is rarely far away off this mark while recent C&D winner Qaasid is up a stiff 5 pounds for landing a modest heat last time .

1/2pt win Dinoo @ 9/4

5.30 Plenty here with a chance and a true run race on the cards with the front running Sharvara returning from a lengthy absence and new connections will be keen to get a gallop into his legs . At the odds I’m with C&D winner Crownthorpe , who’s been going well of late but now  a bit high in the ratings , but so are plenty of his in form rivals .

1/4pt  ew Crownthorpe @ 16/1

6.00 Long standing maiden Gracelands Girl has blown easier chances than this while the luckless Wadacre Grace just can’t get her nose in front off this mark . With both Piffle and Lilikoi now on testing marks , worth a try on Miss Britain , a winner at Southwell, at this trip and just a pound lower.

1/4pt win Miss Britain @ 7/1

7,00 The clear form horse is the late playing Tathmeen , who goes for the C&D hat-trick . He’s up in the ratings and grade but a strong pace is assured with Blackjack in the field , and few of the field make any appeal .

1/4pt win Tathmeen @ 9/2

8.00 Kraken Power put a rare lesser effort over C&D behind him when waiting tactics were employed and only failed narrowly with a powerful finish . At the odds I prefer another C&D regular in Canzone , a winner over C&D two starts back when given his usual prominent ride and just a pound higher tonight .
