Larry 3.30 @ 16/1
The King Of May 1.35 @ 10/1
Weveallbeencaught 1.20 @ 7/2
No advice for Lingfield as in each race there’s either a number with similar chances or favs plenty short enough
Selected Sandown – probably good to soft on this stiff and galloping track
1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.20 A bit of a test for the unbeaten Irish raider Gerri De Colombe , the short priced fav , with drying ground and a drop in trip not ideal .
2.55 PREMIUM RACE
3.30 A wide open good quality Class 2 handicap and dual course winner Larry looks overpriced , with the ground in his favour and just 4 pounds higher than his last win and the return to a stiff circuit very much in his favour .
1/2pt ew Larry @ 16/1
Selected Wetherby – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.35 Worth chancing the outsider in The king Of May who’s been going pretty well this season and runs this C&D very well , and ground ideal. Rivals are all now on stiff marks .
¼ pt win King Of May @ 10/1
2.10 Looks a match between the two last time winners , but Jane Du Berlais looked more impressive than Ruby Island .
1/4pt win Jane Du Berlais @ 9/4
3.23 It was a welcome return to form from Haafapice last time out off this much reduced mark when a good 2nd and with a good record over C&D can land a winnable heat .
1/4pt win Haafapiece @ 5/2
Selected Leopardstown – good to soft on this mostly flat and galloping track
1.20 Anything crossing The Irish Sea is always of interest and English raider Weveallbeencaught brings good form to the table and gives very much the impression this longer trip’s in his favour .
1/2pt win Weveallbeencaught @ 7/2
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 Maxxum is a massive improver but has been raised a telling 18 pounds . Jungle Pose rattled off a 4 timer before being caught out in Grade 2 company . Mark could test , but long odds for a progressive type.
1/4pt ew Jungle Prose
Selected Musselburgh – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.28 Many of Laura Morgan’s horses rattle off a sequence and could have another in Notlongtillmay who goes for the 4 timer and despite a 10 pound hit , has been winning easily .
1/4pt win Notlongtillmay @ 11/4
2/03 Captain Cattistock won this Edinburgh National last year and has run well in both starts this season . Nice ew play for a C&D winner .
1/4pt ew Captain Cattistock @ 10/1
3.16 PREMIUM RACE
3.48 A very open handicap hurdle but Scots Poet hasn’t been going badly of late and has dropped to a good mark . Nice longshot .
1/4pt ew Scots poet @ 16/1
4.20 Didero Vallis comes here on the back of a big run at Ludlow , just behind a pair of useful yardsticks , and this won’t take much beating.
1/4pt win Didero Vallis @ 11/4
No Musselburgh placepot
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
5.30 The pair who bring the best poyltrack form to the race at this trip and off their marks are Ballybaymoonshiner and Nick Vedder , but both are proving very hard to win with . The nod goes to the tip , who’s better drawn . Should be hitting the frame at least .
1/4pt ew Nick Vedder @ 13/2
7.00 The bookies make this a 2 horse war between the short priced fav Kingdom Come , who overcame an 18 months absence to win easily over C&D , and well handicapped on that run , but how will he perform 2nd race back after a break ! That gives the nod to the in form and still well handicapped tip.
1/4pt ew Chola Empire @ 2/1
7.30 The longer trip is the issue for Girlsjustwannahaefun , and of course the penalty while both Hiatus and Ignac Lamar are already on testing marks . Royal Bliss ran well in a maiden at Chelmsford City at this trip , a run which puts this strong finisher on a workable mark and she contested a decent prize in France last time on the all weather .
1/4pt ew Royal Bliss @ 9/1
8.00 As all of Bluenose Belle , Arab Cinder , Ciao Adios and How Hard Can It Be are now all on testing marks , a decent opportunity for the strong staying Rikona , holding her form well off her new mark .
1/4pt ew Rikona @ 7/1
8.30 Cheng Gong recently returned from an absence of 2 years + and stepped up on a poor first return run with a good 3rd over C&D when making the running . Not a strong finale .
1/4pt win Cheng Gong @ 5/1
