Selected The Curragh = good ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track

2.35 English raider Mr Wagyu just doesn’t know how to run a bad race and comes here on the back of a terrific 4th at Royal Ascot . Front rank throughout and won’t fail for effort .

1/2pt win Mr Wagyu @ 5/1

3.45 The irish Oaks and hard looking past the fav in Magical Lagoon after her Royal ascot win at this trip .

1/2pt win Magical Lagoon @ 6/5

Selected Market Rasen – good to firm on this mostly flat and tight track

2.41 Hurricane Ali comes here in progressive form and there was nothing wrong with his recent 3rd in a hot Cartmel handicap . Another big run expected at juicy odds .

1/2pt  ew Hurricane Ali @ 10/1

3.14 Many of these are now on stiff marks so preference for the back to form Manofthemountain , remaining on a good mark .

1/2pt  win Manofthemountain @ 7/1

3.50 as he’s proven at the track, Hang In There is expected to confirm recent form over Carys Community .

1/2pt  win Hang In There @ 6/5

5.00 The stiff penalty won’t help Karanelle but the 3pound penalty Kayfast Warrior received for a smart win at Perth keeps him right in the picture .

1/2pt  win  Kayfast Warrior @ 7/2

Selected Newmarket good to firm on this undulating , stiff and galloping track

2.16 Good opportunity for the consistent Kodias Sangarius against very beatable rivals .

1/2pt win Kodias Sangarius @ 10/3

2.51 He’s only had 3 runs but Bass Player goes handicapping on a lofty mark of 102 , and could well be up to it .

1/2pt win Bass Player @ 9/2

3.22 As she’s likely to get the run of the race from the front and likely to stay this trip, the well related Darlectable You can come of age .

1/4pt win Darlectable You @ 15/2

3.57 in what looks a match , Charging Thunder beat Throne Hall with such authority that despite the penalty , should go in again .

1/2pt win Charging Thunder @ 11/8

5.07 Auditor looks too high in the ratings and the nod goes to the in form Outrun The Storm over the consistent Cabinet Of Clowns .

1/4pt win Outrun The Storm @ 9/2

Selected Ripon – good to firm on this undulating and sharp track

1.46 Lily of The Jungle is preferred to short priced fav Coraje who returns from 3 months off and may not stay this far .

1/4pt win Lily of The Jungle @ 4/1

2.58 Plenty of early pace around which wont help the short priced prominent racing fav . Freak Out looks like coming to the boil . Nice Longshot .

1/4pt  ew Freak Out @ 12/1

4.01 A open event but the C&D winner Head Chef is holding his form well and shouldn’t be far away

1/4pt  ew  Head Chef @ 8/1

Selected Cartmel – good to firm on this sharp and undulating track

1.54 If track specialist Dressedforsuccess could transfer his excellent chase form to the smaller obstacles, this wouldn’t be a contest , but that’s a big if . Kerosine Light has the form to be dangerous.

1/4pt win  Kerosine Light@ 3/1



4.43 Dee star goes very well here but the nudge up the ratings won’t help while the young jockey can’t buy a winner here . The trip is too long for Mah Mate Bob so a chance taken with kiltorcan Boy , 2nd in a handicap hurdle here off this mark , is bred for jumping and the stable does well with handicap chase newcomers .

1/4pt win Kiltorcan Boy @ 6/1

5.15 The front running course specialist Calliope showed a lot more last time now down in the ratings when 3rd and better ground today helps .

1/4pt win Calliope @ 10/3

Selected Chester – good to firm on this flat and sharp track. Low numbers in the draw have a distinct edge.

3.08 A competitive sprint handicap but the front running King of Stars is well drawn , well handicapped  and in good form to be another all the way winner at Chester .

1/2pt win King Of stars @ 6/1


4.55 Chairman was unlucky last time and compendsation awaits .

1/2pt win Chairman @ 9/4

5.30 Angel’s Landing has a nice pull in the weights with The New Marwan for a defeat over C&D last week and that could be enough .

1/4pt  win Angel’s Landing @ 5/1

Selected Donny- good to firm on this flat and galloping track

5.45 Despite both carrying penalties for recent successes, looks a match between Sound Of iona and May Blossom but the nod goes to the latter with a lesser penalty and stronger handling in this race for apprentices .

1/2pt win May Blossom @ 2/1

6.15 Those with experience don’t bring a great deal to the table and worth trying the well related newcomer Hey Lyla . Jockey booking suggests stable are hopeful of a good run .

1/4pt win Hey Lyla @ 6/1

6.45 Alice Haynes has a cracking record with juvenile newcomers here making Mother India worth a dabble .

1/4pt  win Mother India @ 8/1

7.15 The clear form horse is Hebrides and has handled ground as quick before .

1/2pt  win Hebrides @ evens

7.45 Neither Adjourn nor asean Legend look bombproof and worth risking the capable carolus Magnus up in  trip.

1/4pt  win Carolus Magnus @ 4/1

8.15 the prolific Bookmark has won his last two over C&D , both times quite cosily , which makes the 3 pound hit look manageable .

1/2pt win Bookmark @ 6/1

Selected Haydock – good to firm on this flat and galloping track

A special big HELLO to 4 very close friends of mine, two married couples, Suzanne & Rob, and Ruth Mark , all 4 are  shrewd judges and Suzanne is part owner of a filly which landed the bets at juicy odds a few days back while Rob’s horse remains one of potential . Ruth is no stranger to finding big winners and found an 80/1 winner last week while Mark NEVER leaves the races without finding a winner or two , so if you see them , you could be wise to follow their plays. They are easily recognisable , they light their cigars with £20 notes !

6.30 A weak opener which looks very much a match but as Dogged is so hard to win with preference for the consistent Billy Roberts , who has showed he has the desire for the win .

1/2pt  win Billy Roberts @ 3/1

7.00 Looks another match and despite Killybegs Warrior winning impressively on debut , he’d do very well conceding weight to the well related and very expensive Lord Uhtred , a very promising 3rd in a deep looking Yarmouth maiden .

1/2pt win Lord Uhtred @ 6/5

7.30 Another match and despite both Spangled Mac and Alethiometer both penalised for recent wins , the latter has stronger form at this trip and a less severe penalty .

1/2pt win Alethiometer  @ 6/4

8.00 Another race with few contenders . Boudica Bay goes well here but the stiff 4 pound hit for winning over C&D on soft ground looks too much to overcome . There’s been money for Second Collection today but I’ve been with her the last twice and I’m jumping ship as she had the opportunity to do much better , and two runs here haven’t been great. The in form Amor De La Vida went down fighting last time and off the same mark looks the bet .

1/2pt win Amor De La vida @ 3/1

8.30 I’m not overly impressed by the chances of joint favs Shaara and Shampion , both returning from absences . Invisible Friend didn’t come cheaply, is very well related and the stable capable of getting one ready first time .

1/4pt win Invisible Friend @ 8/1

9.00 The lightly raced Giovanni Baglione would do well to double up with a hefty 8 pound hit and a bit to prove on a speed track . Savrola’s only run on turf was poor while Dion Baker a bit to prove off his mark, on the ground and this kind of track . The lightly raced Snapcracklepop made all t Nottingham on his comeback spin and lost little in defeat next time when unable to take them along . Brings the best credentials to the table and is the outsider !

1/2pt win Snapcracklepop @ 5/1
