Selected Musselburgh – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.50 After landing an Aintree bumper very well on debut , Elogio’s two hurdles runs have been at best OK , and has looked a weak finisher . Morandi Second has run well in all 3 tries over hurdles and his latest effort when 2nd of 17 in a good ground Donny handicap was a particularly good effort for a juvenile and is preferred .
1/2pt win Morandi Second @ 13/8
2.20 The prominent racing Hold Onto The Line goes for the C&D 4 timer but returns after another lengthy break and off a hefty 7 pound higher mark . Preference is for recent C&D winner Cartonne in his first chase , winning easily in the style that he’s capable of offsetting the 8 pound hit .
1/4pt win Cartonne @ 13/8
2.50 Looks very much a match but on drying ground , the consistent Quiet Flow is taken to get the better of the capable Storm Tiger , who is more of a soft ground horse .
1/4pt win Quiet Flow @ 2/1
Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
2.00 PREMIUM RACE
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.35 This looks good for recent Kempton 2nd at this trip Naaser , and as that was his first run, fair to expect even better .
1/2pt win Naaser @ 5/6
4.05 A weak event where the majority have a torrid time getting their nose in front , the exception being recent Kempton winner Lord Clenaghcastle , who backed that up with a good effort over C&D last time . Has the worst of the draw but still worth a play in a winnable heat.
1/4pt win Lord Clenaghcastle @ 6/1
4.35 Shock of the day if 1/4 shot Sausalito fails to land the hat-trick .
Selected Wincanton – good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.10 Despite carrying a double penalty, the useful Outlaw Peter looks good to outclass these , but is 1/2 .
2.40 Another short priced fav from the Paul Nicholls stable in the recently very disappointing Toothless , and despite this being very weak , I wouldn’t be advising ploughing in at 1/3.
3.45 A good quality Class 3 handicap and quite a few with claims but the nod goes to the well handicapped The Widdow Maker , who may well not have his preferred own way up front but with the track and ground in his favour , is preferred.
1/4pt win The Widdow Maker @ 9/2
4.15 This will take little winning and despite a 3 pound hit for his close 2nd over C&D last time on similar ground , the prominent racing Hititi can notch a deserved success .
1/2pt win Hititi @ 9/4
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
Just the two plays on a tricky card .
5.30 The well drawn Owen Starlight is still a bit high in the ratings ,but runs this C&D well , is likely to be able to take them along and this is easier than of late .
1/4pt win Owen Starlight @ 11/4
8.00 I’m not overly attracted to the fav in Alternativa ,who rarely sees the racetrack and quite a lot to prove on the surface and the trip . This looks best left to the in form pair of Bluenose Belle and Golden Dove , both with good form here of late but at this trip , the tip gets the nod .
1/4pt win Bluenose Belle @ 3/1
