Dream Composer @ 7/2
Global Storm 3.35 @ 3/1
Trabajo Detecho 7.55 @ 10/3
Selected Newmarket – good to firm on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
1.15 PREMIUM RACE
1.50 The drop in trip should prove no hardship for the very useful Native Trail but at the odds I prefer a dabble on the prominent racing course specialist Mutassabeq , despite carrying a penalty but goes well fresh and has the ground in his favour .
1/4pt win Mutasaabeq @ 4/1
3.00 A winnable handicap and the nod goes to the late playing C&D winner Final Watch , an encouraging on his recent comeback spin and likely to have a decent pace to aim at .
1/4pt win Final Watch @ 7/2
3.35 As Hurricane Land hasn’t fired for some time and West Wind Blows with stamina doubts , the prominent racing course specialist Global Storm could take some catching .
1/2pt win Global Storm @ 3/1
5.20 This has a very winnable look to it and ignoring his tame comeback spin, which did come after a lengthy absence , Cabinet Of Clowns brings very solid form to the table . Mark, trip , ground and probably track all in his favour .
1/4pt win Cabinet Of Clowns @ 14/1
Selected Goodwood – good to soft on this undulating , sharp and tricky track
1.30 Experience counts for plenty in juvenile races and Dubai Hills did well when 2nd in a valuable soft ground event at Chantilly on soft ground , when quite short in the market . Given a prominent ride that day and another good run expected .
1/4pt win Dubai Hills @ 9/2
2.05 Time Lock is the clear form horse and looks very good for fav backers , with little to prove .
3/4pt win Time Lock @ 5/4
2.35 No shortage of early pace here with all weather specialists Prop Forward and Angle Land , both now high in the ratings and hat-trick seeking Reigning Profit , unpenalized for his double at Ponty , all sure to bomb off and with this speed track unlikely to suit the latter . recent Newmarket winner Dream Composer has an ideal race make up for a late player and this course winner is just 2 pounds higher .
1/2pt win Dream Composer @ 7/2
3.10 The late playing Spanish Star comes here on the back of a solid comeback spin and is very much a course specialist . Should be enough early pace to give him an ideal late tow into the race .
1/4pt win Spanish Star @ 7/2
3.45 Kolsai is very much the form horse and another for short priced fav backers .
1.2pt win Kolsai @ 5/6
Selected Musselburgh – probably good ground on this flat and galloping track
3.20 Massively intricate , all 6 have a good shout .
5.00 The late playing Going Underground holds his form well and his recent running on 2nd off this mark on similar ground presents solid claims in an uncompetitive heat .
1/4pt win Going Underground @ 7/2
Selected Cheltenham – good ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
4.50 PREMIUM RACE
5.25 Extremely tricky with so many prolific young horses switching to regulation fences .
6.00 Trio For Rio has won this for the last 2 years but recent form disappointing and understandable that the useful Marcle Ridge is the fav , but too short for me .
6.35 The odds on fav is Festival hero Premier Magic , who won’t mind the switch to good ground and will be hard to beat . Dandy Dan won this well last year and demands respect .
7.10 Very hard looking past Highway Jewel , a former winner of this event .
1/2pt win Highway Jewel @ 10/11
7.45 The very useful Law Of Gold was a very close 2nd in this marathon last season and is preferred to the back to form Shantou Flyer , with stamina to prove and also better on soft .
1/2pt win Law Of Gold @ 11/8
8.17 Solomon Grey comes here in decent nick and is taken to double up last year’s win in this race . Magic Saint has a bit to prove after a lesser effort last time and Not That Fuisse has never shone here .
1/4pt win Solomon Grey @ 11/2
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping.
7.20 PREMIUM RACE
7.55 The prominent racing Trabajo Detecho is a dual C&D winner and did well to be a close 2nd off this mark last time on soft turf . Another good run expected .
1/2pt win Trabajo Detecho @ 10/3
