Today’s Multi – yesterday 2 winners 9/1 @ 15/8 and a 4/1 2nd beaten in a photo ! Ouch ! but still a very good return
3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Junoesque 2.50 Brighton
Francesi 7.10 @ 5/2
Debydinks 8.30 @ 4/1
Selected Brighton – good to firm on this undulating , sharp and very tricky track where course specialists are always to be noted.
1.50 PREMIUM RACE
2.50 The front running Junoesque is an 8 times course winner and after an encouraging recent comeback spin , could be hard to catch in a modest heat.
1/2pt win Junoesque @ 7/2
3.20 A good quality Class 3 handicap for the track and plenty of big stables have representatives , but I’m with the front running Arenas Del Tiempo , who runs this track well, bounces off quick ground and has dropped to a workable mark . Worth a try .
1/4pt ew Arenas Del Tiempo @ 22/1
3.50 It looks very much a match but as Estate has form on quick turf , and at this trip , could have the edge over odds on fav Spartan Arrow over this sharp C&D .
1/4pt win Estate @ 9/4
4.20 Rhubarb Bikini made an overdue return to the winners’ Circle off his much reduced mark by picking up Letter of The Law close home over C&D last time on quick ground , but the handicapper has shoved them up stiffly and this offers an opportunity for the luckless Somedayonedaynever, , who has in his CV a close 3rd over C&D off around this mark . Prominent racer
1/4pt win Somedayonedaynever @ 6/1
Selected Nottingham – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
4.10 The valuable Nottinghamshire Oaks with a trio of Irish raiders and a cluster of quality fillies running for top stables, but I’m with one of the longshots . Pink Carnation won her maiden here and has showed a liking for soft ground , ending the season with 3 big runs in the mud . On official ratings she has a lot to find , but pretty easy to pick holes in the chances of most of the higher rated ones . Certainly worth a try with her progressive profile .
1/4pt ew Pink Carnation @ 22/1
4.40 Open Market was a very close 2nd over C&D last time in the mud and off the same mark is certainly worth an interest .
1/4pt win Open Market @ 7/2
No Nottingham placepot
Selected Yarmouth – good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.00 As this has a winnable look to it I’m with C&D winner Placated , who suffered a massive 9 pound hit for a smart win but backed that up with a good effort in higher grade , again over C&D . She is unexposed on turf and worth a try .
1/4pt win Placated @ 8/1
4.30 The famous colours of the late Hamdan Al Makhtoum , are not nearly seen nowadays as when he was alive and the Shadwell team decided to trim down their operation , so anything in these colours are of interest . Tajdif cost a cool £150,000 as a foal and ran a promising race on debut . Being gelded and wearing a hood are both positives for the in form top stable and makes ,longshot appeal .
1/4pt ew Tajdif @ 14/1
No Yarmouth placepot
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
5.40 The fav is the in form veteran Rockley Point but he is closely matched with all of : Pandemic Princess, We’re Reunited and Reversion on recent C&D form .
6.10 Another Angel is not the decent handicapper he once was but has found his niche over this C&D , coming here on the back of two big runs . He’s badly drawn again for a prominent racer , but still ran his race with an even worse draw recently . There is pace inside but still preferred in his current vein of form .
1/2pt win Another Angel @ 4/1
6.40 Annie Maher was very consistent last season , including first time out . Has the best of the draw and is proven at the trip and surface and brings good form to the table .
1/4pt win Annie Maher @ 5/1
7.10 The luckless Francesi has found a good opportunity and should make no mistake over a C&D he runs well.
1/2pt win Francesi @ 5/2
7.40 Looks a match between two in form mares , the luckless Haven Lady and recent shock winner Lunar Shadow . I’ve been with Haven Lady frequently of late and deserves a win but as the tip is a proven winner over hurdles and flat , gets the nod .
1/4pt win Lunar Shadow @ 11/4
8.10 Alaskan comes here in good form and stays on the same mark . Proven on the surface and looks well worth a try over an extra furlong in a race which won’t take much winning .
1/4pt win Alaskan @ 9/2
Selected Newcastle – all weather – the track is stiff and galloping
6.00 With the exception of rank outsider Gold Arch , a good case can be made for the other five , but with no recognised front runner , this could develop into a late dash . Not ideal for a play .
6.30 PREMIUM RACE
7.30 PREMIUM RACE
8.30 The luckless Debydinks has gone close over C&D twice of late and in an uncompetitive heat , can finally have his day . He had the other fav Exceed behind over C&D in one of those runs .
1/2pt win Debydinks @ 4/1
9.00 With the two form horses in Odd Socks Havana and Spirit Of Bowland , both course winners, now both on stiff marks , C&D consistent regular Masham Moor could take advantage in a modest finale .
1/4pt win Masham Moor @ 10/3
