1.20 In a tricky contest as many of these go handicapping for the first time and most are trying this trip for the first time. Worth a dabble on one of the longshots in Alicefromubridge , a long priced winner of a Classified event but backed that up with a most respectable effort over C&D when beaten just over a length and 2 pounds lower today , and the quicker they go up front , the better this strong finisher’s chance . Good jockey booking with David Egan .
1/4pt ew Alicefromumbridge @ 16/1
1.50 Despite coming into his latest race on a series of below par efforts , the well handicapped Kitbag was well supported , and only found one too good. From a good draw and over a C&D where he won his only race , looks a solid fav in a modest heat .
1/2pt win Kitbag @ 6/4
2.25 Chances galore in this low grade handicap sprint but I have reservations about two of the form horses in My Boy Jack , who has a rare run on polytrack and Toplight , now on a stiff looking mark , goes up in trip and another better on tapeta. Real Estate is rarely far away , comes here in good form and another good run likely .
1/4pt ew Real Estate @ 7/1
4.05 After landing 4 wins in Classified Company , winning easily every time , Sausolito was allotted a stiff looking mark graduating to handicaps , but the result was the same , winning very easily and the 5 pound hit unlikely to stop the 6 timer , but is odds on .
4.35 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Wetherby , soft ground on this flat and galloping track
2.15 Somewhat Cloudy is the one to beat after a smart win in the Market Rasen mud in his first chase . 5 pound hit should be manageable but the drop in trip will test , happy to watch at the odds .
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
3.55 After a smart win over C&D on his first start for Stuart Edmunds , Fievel backed that up with a cracking 2nd at Sandown in the mud. Will be very hard to beat .
1/2pt win Fieval @ evens
Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta
2.05 Saisons D’Or bounced back to form , off a good mark when making all over C&D and off just a 3 pound higher mark , entitled to be thereabouts again , but won’t be helped by the other front runners in the field , suggesting this is best left to the late players and 3 of these have gone close over C&D of late in Ring Of Gold, Big Narstie and Rogue Star and faintest of nods goes to the latter , marginally better handicapped .
1/4pt ew Rogue Star @ 15/2
3.15 This will take little winning and a good opportunity for the consistent track regular Kodebreaker.
1/4pt win Kodebreaker @ 5/2
4.20 PREMIUM RACE
5.25 Quite an open race with all of the reliable Forge Valley Lad , the hat-trick seeking Citizen General, Sky Breeze , Down To The Kid and Greystoke all having strong claims but the nod goes to the latter , who’s done little wrong in two recent good 2nds at this trip and mark at Wolver .
1/2pt win Greystoke @ 11/2
5.55 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping
5.20 After two narrow defeats over C&D , both off this mark , the prominent racing Pallas Lord will be very hard to beat against modest opposition .
3/4pt win Pallas Lord @ 11/8
6.20 The consistent C&D regular Kraken Power goes up in grade but still respected in a field where not many come here with high hopes . Golden Rainbow was a smart winner over C&D not that long ago and subsequent runs suggest he’s capable of a win off this mark . Likely to try and burn them off from the start .
1/4pt win Golden Rainbow @ 6/1
7.20 The step up in trip was all that recent C&D winner St Andrew’s Castle needed and backed that up with a narrow defeat , again over C&D , off this mark , form very likely to see him back in The Winners’ Circle .
3/4pt win St Andrew’s Castle @ 7/4
7.50 Plenty of in form types but the reliable Satin Snake went down by just a short head over C&D recently off around this mark and another honest effort expected .
1/4pt ew Satin Snake @ 7/1
8.20 One Hart has held his form well since winning over C&D , and was unlucky off this mark recently , looks a good play in The Lucky Last as the in form Jems Bond could struggle off this markdown to this trip .
1/2pt win One Hart @ 5/1
Selected Dundalk – all weather polytrack
6.30 Vee Dancer was very well backed when sauntering to victory over C&D last time out, but a massive 9 pound hit will take some overcoming . Curious Bride comes here on the back of two fine efforts here , one over C&D off around this mark , making her a very lively longshot .
1/4pt ew Curious Bride @ 12/1
7.00 Relevant Range comes here on the back of two good runs here and this extra furlong could see this consistent finally in the Winner’s Circle . Rick Dalton is another consistent maiden , but a bit to prove first time on the surface and returning from a 7 months absence .
1/4pt win Relevant Range @ 9/4
7.30 The consistent pair of Feature This and Royal Tribute were close up over C&D last time and in a race more about quantity than quality , likely to fight this out , but the tip has showed he knows how to win while his main rival continues to rack up placed efforts .
1/2pt win Feature This @ 5/2
8.00 Just An Hour, San Antonio and Cape Bridgewater all bring good form to the table and all run in famous colours for top stables but the latter brings good track form to the table, likely to appreciate the longer trip and looks overpriced .
1/4pt win Cape Bridgewater @ 4/1
