Liberation Point 3.40 @ 13/8
Available Angel 4.30 @ 7/4
Selected Salisbury – good to firm on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
2.00 Connections were certainly keen to keep hold of the well related Celtic champion as his price soared from just £10,500 as a yearling to £150,000 as a 2yo ! and has run well in both runs , the latest a 4th of 18 at Goodwood. Brings the best form to the table and it should be third time lucky .
1/2pt win Celtic Champion @ 15/8
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Yarmouth – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
1.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.55 PREMIUM RACE
4.30 A modest event and looks very much a match but as Available Angel has gone close the last twice , both at this trip and once over C&D on quick ground , that gives her the edge over Kelapa , more potent over a longer trip .
1/2pt win Available Angel @ 7/4
Selected Beverley – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
2.10 It’s a very weak juvenile sprint maiden and the clear form horse is Minnesota Lad who was a good 3rd over C&d on debut and went on to run to a similar level next time at York , but that was a worrying 3 months ago , not a welcome sight seeing a young horse having a long break between races . Turbo Tiger ran well on debut recently at Wolver , but on breeding the switch to quick turf should not be an issue . Amy Murphy is a very respectable 3 from 11 here in juvenile maidens and is preferred .
1/4pt win Turbo Tiger @ 7/2
2.40 The two clear form horses are Spirit of Applause , who defied odds of 66/1 to be a cracking 2nd on debut at York , but preference is for the consistent Emily’s Eclipse , who gave the useful Crackovia a good race over C&D recently and is preferred as she’s proven around this stiff C&D .
1/2pt win Emily’s Eclipse @ 2/1
3.40 Liberation Point has simply taken off since blinkers has been used and switching to prominent racing . Looking at the racing styles of his rivals , he’s likely to be front rank, at least , and it’s hard making a strong case for any of the opposition . A useful 5 pound claimer takes the reins for the first time , which can’t harm at all .
1/2pt win Liberation Point @ 13/8
4.10 Andaleep has been nursed back to top form by the skilful team of the Kublers but would do well to double up a recent win at Windsor over a longer trip with a 5 pound penalty . Zumurid also comes here in fine form , but does have a rare try on a stiff circuit . An easy lead is up for grabs which makes the capable Little Ted of interest , Still on a stiff enough mark but well drawn to attack from flagfall .
1/4pt win Little Ted @ 6/1
5.10 A tough sprint handicap to solve . Frisky finally got her act together with a clear win in a Leicester sprint putting her on a good mark in her handicap debut but I’d rather just watch Grantley Hall who struggled off around this mark last time and drops in trip . Iur Cinn Tra is rarely far away but the nod goes to the lightly raced Glory Hallelujah , a close 3rd at this trip last time in a competitive heat at Donny and as he stays well. this C&D should suit well .
1/4pt win Glory Hallelujah @ 6/1
Selected Ffos Las – good ground on this flat and galloping track
5.30 There wasn’t much between Saxon Scene and Tuddenham Hill at Epsom recently , despite the latter looking ill at ease on the track, but as the former had run to his best over C&D previously , is taken to confirm form .
1/4pt win Saxon Scene @ 7/4
6.40 The short priced fav is Albion Princess , who was well turned over when a similar short priced fav on her comeback spin, which was 7 weeks ago . It came at Newmarket , and was beaten 7 lengths , so there must be more attractive options . Kinrarra has done well the last twice off around this mark and looks relatively long odds to land a winnable heat . Rikona is interesting having switched to a upwardly mobile stable .
1/4pt win Kinrarra @ 8/1
7.15 Only 4 go but despite True Gem being a smart Haydock winner last time , the 6 pound hit and especially the faster ground makes the double look doubtful . The last time we saw Ecols was when he admirably toughed it out to also win at Haydock on soft ground and over a longer trip , and only a pound higher tonight , but may need this after a 2 months absence . Haymaker ran a cracker at Ponty last time but worrying that the tongue tie has been removed . impossible to knock Regal Envoy , 5 runs this season , 3 wins and 2 seconds ! and just 2 pounds higher for a his latest win , which has worked out well . He’s my solution to a tricky heat .
1/4pt win Regal envoy @ 3/1
Ffos Las placepot
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
6.15 Newcomer Creatively is certainly of interest . Trained by Ralph Beckett who has a terrific record with juveniles here , including newcomers , and she is related to some smart performers and all weather blood in the pedigree . She didn’t come cheaply, £130,000 .
1/4pt win Creatively @7/2
6.50 Fashion Line has little to beat and should reward fav backers .
7.25 Damaar is with a top stable and showed much improved form to come strongly off the pace to win narrowly at Chelmsford City , and just a pound higher , but is up in grade , and the jockey booking could have been more positive .Conflict is improving with experience and was an easy winner of practically a match last time , but does run frequently to around his opening handicap mark and the longer trip no issue and is preferred in a race of few stand out contenders . Huddleton Mac was a good 2nd over C&D when last seen , but it came off a 2 pound lower mark and it was 9 months ago , so happy to just watch him .
1/4pt win Conflict @ 13/2
8.00 Plenty of these are going up in trip , which looks a bit of act of desperation , as most are running moderately and not indicating a longer trip is needed. The lightly raced Tequilamockingbird followed up an easy debut handicap win on the Lingfield polytrack with a respectable effort when a decent 4th in higher grade at Newbury , off this mark , behind some dependable yardsticks , giving every indication that this trip would suit .
1/2pt win Tequilamockingbird @ 7/2
