Datsalrightgino 12.45 @ 5/2
Selected Kelso – heavy ground on this undulating and sharp track with a long galloping straight
11.53 PREMIUM RACE
12.28 In a race with little early pace , good chance for the novice Inis oirr to dominate from flagfall and exploit a well workable opening mark . He only just went down at Haydock in the mud and the winner has run well since . Drops in trip but stamina will win the day .
3/4pt win Inis Oirr @ 5/2
1.03 A lot of early pace around but I’m sticking with one of the pacesetters in the prolific dual C&D winner Wheelbarri , who sees it out really well and his penalty could have been worse .
1/4pt win Wheelbarri @ 6/1
1.38 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Leopardstown – probably soft ground on this mostly flat and galloping track
12.00 The bang in form Handsworth backed up a staying on 2nd in the Wexford mud with an excellent , again staying on strongly , at Aintree . He stays off around the same mark but slightly worried he’s a hold up horse , not ideal for this track in a big field.
1//4pt ew Handsworth @ 7/1
12.35 The clear form horse is recent good 2nd in a big field Embassy Gardens and no issues at all with today’s C&D. On jockey bookings he is the Mullins Number 2 behind Madmansgame , but still prefer his chance .
1/4pt win Embassy Gardens @ 4/1
1.45 Looks a match and a deserved win can come to the massively consistent Gaillard Du Mesnil at the main expense of Three Stripe Life .
1/2pt win Gaillard Du Mesnil @ 13/8
2.55 Spirit of Legend is feasibly handicapped after his good win in a big field novice hurdle at this trip . Not a deep race.
1/2pt win Spirit Of Legend @ 4/1
Selected Donny – probably good ground on this flat and galloping track
12.10 As Moon Hunter’s recent win came on good ground , this trip , over a similar course and was pretty cosy , he is taken to overcome his penalty . Hands Off ran well on debut at Ascot at this trip , but could find things happening too quick around this speed track .
1/4pt win Moon Hunter @ 10/3
12.45 The consistent Datsalrightgino comes here on the back of a big run at Newbury when a close 3rd in a good contest . Stays on the same mark and has the ground and C&D in his favour .
1/2pt win Datsalrightgino @ 5/2
1.55 The consistent Pounding Poet has only a small penalty for a determined recent win at this trip and ground .
1/4pt win Pounding Poet @ 6/1
2.40 Storm Control is back down to a workable mark but a few concerns , off longer than usual and a first time visor .
1/4pt win Storm Control @ 9/2
3.40 The prominent racing Matchless has done well enough in two novice hurdles over C&D to be major factor n his first handicap off a fair mark .
1/4pt win Matchless @ 10/3
Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta
4.00 PREMIUM RACE
6.00 Twilight Madness just needed a bit of extra help from the handicapper to snap out of a frustrating run of placed efforts to win at Newcastle and has followed up by landing a double over this C&D , and the 5 pound hit may not stop him but at the bottom of the weights , Trusty Rusty has been given a chance by the handicapper and worth a dabble at long odds.
1/4pt ew Trusty Rusty @ 25/1
6.30 PREMIUM RACE
7.30 A very modest sprint to end the card and looks very much a match between a couple who have been showing up well in handicaps over C&D , but considering Bluebird has had far fewer chances is preferred over Mehmo , who’s on a long losing run .
1/4pt win Bluebird @ 5/2
