3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Street Parade 1.00 @ 9/4
Clashaniska 3.00 @ 2/1
Masqool 8.45 @ 3/1
Selected Brighton – good to firm on this undulating , sharp and tricky track.
1.00The in form late playing Street Parade runs this C&D very well and despite being a pound or two high in the ratings , the opposition is well beatable as the admirable Porfin will have a right job defying this mark down in trip .
1/2pt win Street Parade @ 9/4
3.20 Plenty of in form types here , all proven over C&D, but all now on very challenging marks , One going the other way is the Course specialist , the front running Junoesque , who was hammered by the handicapper , after landing a double, and has struggled since, but now just above his last wnning mark and could take a bit of catching .
1/4pt win Junoesque @ 5/1
4.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Chepstow – good to firm on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
1.50 PREMIUM RACE
2.25 The admirably consistent Autumn Festival will give it another good go from the front , and runs stiff tracks well . He’s just 2 pounds higher for showing his customary determination when winning narrowly at Sandown , when Reversion was a close 2nd , and gets the nod with a slight pull in the weights . C&d winner King Of war is an effective and genuine late player , who is now looking a little high in the weights, but no surprise if he runs another big one .
1/4pt win Reversion @ 5/1
3.00 A weak event and despite carrying a penalty, the back to form Clashaniska , looks a very solid fav , and is proven over C&D.
1/2pt win Clashaniska @ 2/1
4.05 Another weak event and C&D winner Fossos has been holding his form well , which is good enough to see another prominent showing .
1/4pt ew Fossos @ 8/1
4.40 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Stratford – good ground on this flat and sharp track
4.50 Dreamweaver was rated a useful 83 on the flat but no great shakes over hurdles in two tries and returns from a 2 months break for the Dr Richard Newland stable, whose horses are running way , way below form . Victory Club brings solid looking bumper form to the table but preference is for recent close 2nd Bagheeera Ginge , and this longer trip looks a bonus .
1/4pt win Bagheera Ginge @ 9/4
5.20 Salley gardens continues to hold his form well and despite this C&D being on the sharp side, opposition not formidable .
1/4pt win Salley Gardens @ 6/4
6.50 Isthebaropen is another who holds his form well . No issues with this kind of C&D and another taking on beatable rivals .
1/4pt win Isthebaropen
7.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Southwell – all weather tapeta
6.40 So Grateful clearly loves it here as both career wins have come at this track , and improved significantly to beat a good field last time The 5 pound hit looks Ok but does drop in trip and not well drawn , but still a contender . The consistent Ustath ran well over C&D last time and another entitled to be bang there, but again not a kind draw . Mews House is only 2 pounds here for beating a reliable yardstick last time and is proven on the surface. Nicely drawn and I’d have been a lot more confident if a very unsuccessful apprentice wasn’t riding . Just a dabble .
1/4pt ew Mews House @ 6/1
7.40 Ring of Gold ended last season with a right flourish , 2 wins and 2 seconds , and returns from an 8 months break on a 5 pound higher mark and can only be watched tonight as form after a break not good. Thrave is rarely far away but losses are mounting up so preference is for the back to form Back From Dubai , who rattled off a 4 timer over C&D earlier in the year , the last off a mark of 58, and only 54 tonight .
1/4pt win Back From Dubai @ 10/3
8.45 A very weak finale and the clear form horse is Masqool , well backed on Saturday when narrowly beaten and the switch to this C&D no issue as he’s a C&D winner . He’s partnered by an experienced jumps 7 pound claimer in Harriet Tucker , who is sufficiently competent .
1/2pt win Masqool @ 3/1
