Today’s Multi £1 trixie & £1 treble
Impulsive One 2.20 @ 9/4
Cedar Hill 12.05 @ 9/4
Grand Voyage 1.35 @ 2/1
Selected Kelso – good to soft on this undulating and sharp track with a long galloping straight .
12.05 Cedar Hill has a terrific record here , 4 wins and 3 places from 8 runs ! and showed well enough on his comeback spin at Ayr when 3rd to be the one to beat today . Only concern is drying ground .
1/2pt win Cedar Hill @ 9/4
1.05 The Scottish Borders National and a case can be made for many but I’m trying the new kid on the block in marathons in youngster All About Joe , a clear winner of The Durham National at Sedgefield , beating a couple of reliable yardsticks and as he’s unexposed over extreme distances , could be up to the 5 pound hit .
1/4pt win All About Joe @ 11/2
Selected Fairyhouse – good to soft on this undulating , galloping and quite stiff track
11.55 PREMIUM RACE
12.55 Plenty with a squeak in this marathon but this could be the luckless The Dabbler’s big day . Placed frequently in handicaps, including a close 2nd in this last year off around this mark and wrmed up for this with a gutsy place ina big field handicap hurdle at Navan at long odds .
1/4pt win The Dabbler @ 9/2
1.25 One of a number of novice events for unexposed and prolific types and despite Champ Kiely being a warm order at even money , and may well win , there are so many unexposed types in this capable of ruffling his feathers. The ultra consistent Prairie Dancer is more exposed than most but on the ratings , is bang up there and has to be worth a dabble at such long odds .
1/4pt ew Prairie Dancer @ 33/1
1.55 A crackerjack of a Grade 1 novice chase , and again the field is full of prolific , progressive and unexposed types. Thedevilscoachman was one of the highest rated of these over hurdles and won smoothly on his chase debut , and has to be worth a decent dabble at long odds.
1/2pt ew . Thedevilscoachman @ 16/1
2.30 One of the al time greats , a living legend , the very wonderful Honeysuckle , an incredible 16 from 16 , a record . She is head and shoulders ahead of this field and 17 beckons , but long odds odds on . Happy to watch .
3.05 There’s every chance that Icare D’Allen is better than a handicapper , as this youngster was aimed in Graded races in the latter part of the season , and never far away , and on a fair mark .
1/4pt win Icare D’Allen @ 9/2
Selected Huntingdon – good ground on this flat and galloping track
12.45 PREMIUM RACE
1.45 Both of the form horses in Art Of Illusion and Great D’Ange like to dominate , but both do stick on well. Hard to split on the figures but the former’s form a touch stronger .
1/4pt win Art Of Illusion @ 10/3
2.20 A switch in tactics saw a much improved run by the youngster Impulsive One, that win coming over C&D on good ground , when held for a late charge . There are a couple of freegoing front runners in this , which provides an ideal race make up for the tip .
3/4pt win Impulsive One @ 9/4
