Today’s multi 

50p ew trixie & 50p ew treble  

Captain Haddock 1.35 @ 11/2 

Golden Melody 4.30 @ 9/1 

Certainly Red 5.20 Ascot 11/2  

Selected Donny – heavy ground on this flat and galloping track  

1.35 Captain Haddock put in a consistent series of runs last season , rarely far away , but no wins . He was 2nd in this last year , off a 10 pound higher mark , that run coming on good ground , but ended the turf season with a 2nd of 17 at Newbury , off around this mark on heavy ground . He is a regular in amateur rider races and his jockey has a record aboard of 2 wins and 4 places from 9 tries . Hard seeing him far away . 

1/2pt ew Captain Haddock @ 11/2 


3.55 Bad Company just doesn’t know how to run a bad race and as he runs well fresh and his peak form came on heavy ground , won’t fail for lack of effort . 

1/4pt win Bad Company @ 9/2 

4.30 Golden Melody was very consistent last season, including first time out . She drops in trip but loves the mud so her stamina will come into play late on .

No advice for Downpatrick  

Selected Ascot – soft ground on this stiff and galloping track  

2.25 This stiff C&D on soft ground will suit the consistent Upton Road , who remains on a workable mark . 

1/4pt win Upton Road @ 11/2 


3.35 With so much early pace around ,this is likely to fall to a late player and the well handicapped Dolos fits the bill . He was very disappointing last time , but that was a blip in an otherwise consistent series . 

1/2pt win Dolos @ 15/2 

4.10 The lightly raced Scammalach Liath is a consistent sort and is proven on a stiff track and soft ground and this slightly longer trip will help this ex-pointer . 

1/4pt win Scammalach Liath @ 6/1 

5.20 Certainly Red is one of the most improved chasers around , landing a hat-trick , without breaking sweat and returns to hurdles off a lower mark than his last chase win . It could be that he’s just a much better chaser or he could have just improved as a horse . I’m with the latter theory . 

1/2pt win Certainly Red @ 11/2

Selected Leopardstown – heavy ground on this mostly flat and galloping track  

3.10 Worth a dabble on one of the longshots in Dame KIri , who ran well in all races last season , is one of the few in the field proven on the ground and has a good attitude . 

1/4pt ew Dame Kiri @ 12/1 


4.55 Comfort Line drops in grade and was hardly disgraced in last week’s Irish Lincoln , and won’t be far away again . 

1/4pt win Comfort Line @ 9/2
