Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
1.20 Chutzpal is 1 from over C&D , that win coming in his first race for his new stable . It was a clear win and despite a stiff 7 pound penalty , ran a fair race next time over a trip short of his best and with the booking of ace 7 pound claimer Hugh Horgan , weighted to double up .
1/4pt win Chutzpal @ 11/2
1.50 The prominent racing No Speed Limit is very much a track regular and can be relied upon to run his race. He’s been unlucky in the draw a few times of late , but still acquitted himself well . Drawn in the 2 stall, looks a lovely ew play .

4.35 Oranmore hasn’t had many chances for a 7yo and after a narrow defeat over C&D carried his cruel 6 pound penalty well to be beaten just 2 lengths off this mark , which puts this late player in the picture again.
1/4pt ew Oranmore @ 8/1
Selected Hereford – good ground on this flat and sharp track
Just the one play with small fields being the order of the day , and none of those straight forward .
2.30 Drying ground no help for the form horse Lightonthewing , on a stiff mark anyway while the capable Dynamite Kentucky has disappointed badly the last twice . Unblinking has a poor win record but a close 3rd last Summer at this trip , ground and around this mark is encouraging for today’s task as are his two recent efforts , a close 3rd over hurdles and an unlucky late fall last time when bang there .
1/2pt win Unblinking @ 5/1
Selected Wetherby , good to soft on this flat and galloping track
3.15 With both the very useful handicapper Milkwood , the high enough in the ratings Impulsive One and recent easy Kempton winner Progressive all with stamina doubts , with drying ground no real help to the capable Foster’s Island , who runs this track well and with Findthetime disappointing badly the last twice, worth a try on recent C&D winner Pyramid Place , who’s had few chances at this trip and the 4 pound hit looks within range .
1/2pt win Pyramid Place @ 4/1
4.50 This race is far more about quantity than quality and we have an even money fav in the lightly raced White Rhino , who belied long odds to win very well in his handicap debut at Southwell , lowering the colours of a reliable odds on shot . He’ll be hard to beat with just a 4 pound penalty , especially with ground and probably C&d in his favour . Desaray Girl has dropped like a stone in the ratings , and it was only a matter of time before she showed something and did well to be 2nd in a big field at Catterick behind one way ahead of the game . Nice ew play .
1/4pt ew Desaray Girl @ 9/1
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
7.00 A chance of sorts can be given to all of the field , but the hat-trick seeking Lordsbridge Girl has work to do up 4 pounds and dropping in trip . The one to beat is the ultra consistent Abbey’s Dream , unpenalised for a recent Newcastle win , and just as potent on this surface and she looked on a good mark anyway .
1/2pt win Abbey’s Dream @ 5/2
7.30 PREMIUM RACE
8.00 The consistent , yet luckless Spirit Of Nguru has the best of the draw but doubts whether he can exploit it down in trip . Silky Wilkie is another luckless individual and still looks a few pounds high in the ratings . A good pace is likely which will help the late playing Strong Power , not disgraced last time in Listed company and previously a good 3rd at the minimum , and back up in trip looks a lively longshot in a winnable heat .
1/4pt ew Strong Power @ 12/1
