Captain in charge in the 5.05

Today’s Multi

50p ew Trixie & 50p ew treble

Miss Lightfandango 4.15 @ 14/1

Barleybrown 5.25 @ 12/1

Captain Ivan 5.05 @ 9/4

Selected Hamilton – good to soft ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track

2.20 All of these juveniles tick plenty of boxes in this small field yet competitive nursery , so the play has to be the unconsidered recent Ayr winner Indication Call , a prominent racer on a fair mark and suited to the ground and stiff tracks .

1/4pt win Indication Call @ 15/2

3.25 A very tricky handicap and a chance can be given to all but the nod goes to the very reliable Shine On Brendan , 3 times a course winner , potent on the ground and still looks to be on a competitive mark .

1/4pt win Shine On Brendan @ 7/2

4.25 Off this mark and over this extra furlong in the mud , this represents a tough task for dual course winner Stormy Pearl , but nothing wrong with the chances of the in form trio of Bryce , Trabajo Detecho and Happier , but as the latter is proven on the ground , gets the nod .

1/4pt  win Happier @ 9/4

No Hamilton placepot picks

Selected Chepstow – good to soft ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track



4.05 A very uncompetitive low grade handicap and as the in form pair of Deacs Delight and Fact or Fable are now on stiff marks , a good opportunity for the consistent Galileo Glass , despite preferring an extra furlong .

1/4pt win Galileo Glass @ 9/4

5.10 Clear chances can be given too all of Eton Blue, Carp Kid , Oriental Art and City Escape but not the consistent Havana Goldrush up in trip . The late playing tip comes here in fine form and proven over C&D .

1/4pt  ew City Escape @ 9/1

Selected Leicester – good to soft on this stiff and galloping track

3.45 Malham Cove Tarn brings good handicap form to the table and with the ground and probably C&D in his favour , should exploit a drop in grade .

1/2pt  win Malham Cove Tarn @ 10/3

4.15 I’m trying a longshot in the lightly raced Miss Lightfandango , who races in famous colours and runs for a top stable . She’s well handicapped on the strength of her recent comeback spin in a Newmarket maiden and every chance the longer trip will suit .

1/2pt  ew Miss Lightfandango @ 14/1

5.25 I’m trying another lightly raced longshot in Barleybrown who gives every indication that this stiff C&D will bring out the best of him and proven on the ground .

Selected Worcester- good ground on this flat and galloping track

5.05 Captain Ivan isn’t the first chaser to become prolific under the guidance of Laura Morgan and comes here on the back of fine win at Perth on good ground and off just a 2 pound lower mark . This prominent racer is 1 from   1 at the track and against beatable opposition can land his 4th chase in the last 5 .

3/4pt win Captain Ivan @ 9/4


6.10 This is likely to involve the two in form runners in Rock The Horse , going for the 4 timer and 3 from 3 under Gavin Sheehan , who rides tonight and Charliemy Boy , going for the hat-trick . Tip’s form slightly stronger .

1/4pt win Rock The House @ 7/2


8.25  My two against the field are the the luckless Only Fools , 2nd in her last two and likely to appreciate this longer trip and the lightly raced Nowyouvebinandunit , a good 3rd in her first handicap at this trip and ground , making her a very nice ew play .

1/4pt  ew Nowyouvebinandunit @ 12/1

8.55 No way Pedro goes for the hat-trick , but has leaped to a stiff mark and that combined with a step up in trip, makes another win unlikely . Bluebella has really stepped up since going handicapping on good ground , and only went down a length last time , when looking to be given too much to. Up 3 pounds , but 5 pound claimer Finn Lambert returns to the saddle , who rode the tip to her only win. Pollypocket impressed with her attitude when winning at Market Rasen and is dangerous off the 3 pound higher mark , worth a rev fc .

1/2pt win Bluebella @ 3/1  1/4pt rev fc Bluebella – Pollypocket

Selected Epsom- good to firm on this undulating, sharp and tricky track

5.55 A tricky opener but a decent chance has to be given to the well drawn prominent racing C&D winner New Heights. Last two runs have been pretty good and she bounces off quick ground and in this race for apprentices, the young jockey has a record of 3 wins and 3 places from 7 tries !

1/2pt win New Heights @ 5/1

7.00 The in form Little Boy Blue runs this track very well , 2 places from just 3 tries , and one of those places came last time out . This time he’s partnered by an able 5 pound claimer , which could provide the edge .

1/4pt win Little Boy Blue @ 6/1

8.05 This looks a match between the in  form pair of Invertinate and H Key Lails , who are both proven on this kind of track and quick ground . Both are nudging up the ratings but still make most appeal and the tip is a solid ew play .

1/2pt  ew H Key Lails @ 13/2

8.40 An open finale but worth a try on the in form Naasma , a close 2nd off this mark last time and there could be improvement to come up in trip .

1/2pt  ew Naasma @ 12/1
