Morozov Cocktail 2.50 @ 10/3
Pub Talk 5.00 @ 7/2
Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
12.40 An uncompetitive low grade Classified for starters and few of these have been running well enough to be considered . Elegant Ellen is 0 from 15 but her last two runs were creditable , a close 3rd in a Chelmsford City handicap being the best . She’ll be well handled in this race for apprentices and disappointing if she can’t break her duck .
1/2pt win Elegant Ellen @ 5/2
1.10 It wasn’t the deepest of races which Incrimination landed over C&D last time , and previously was only 3rd over C&D, and is 4 pounds higher today . Preference is for the reliable El Hombre , who comes here on the back of a fine win at Chelmsford City at this trip , and has no penalty and the very able 7 pound claimer Billy Loughnane keeps the ride .
1/2pt win El Hombre @ 5/2
2.40 Resilient Power comes here in top form and was narrowly outstayed last time out at Chelmsford City over a mile , off this mark . Drop back in trip will help, but likely to have competition for the lead .
1/4pt win Resilient Power @ @ 3/1
3.10 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 Sundayinmay is hard to predict but was on her best behaviour last time out , it coming over C&D , but preference for the in form strong staying Rikona, narrowly denied off this mark last time .
1/4pt win Rikona @ 11/8
Selected Sedegefield – soft ground on this undulating and sharp track
1.20 PREMIUM RACE
1.50 Astroman has showed enough of late off this reduced mark to be of interest . A consistent sort who is proven at the track, ground and this trip should hold no fears .
1/4pt ew Astroman @ 11/1
2.20 The unexposed Tom Creen was a very easy winner over C&D and went on to run very well in the Catterick mud, just finding the extra yardage beyond him . He’s on the same mark and this front runner only has one other prominent racer to worry about.
1/2pt wim Tom Creen @ 6/4
2.50 Sir Apollo was a good winner over C&D two starts back on soft ground but disappointed last time and the first time tongue tie hasn’t worked in the past for the stable . Onestepatatime wasn’t far behind in that race and has a nice weight pull today . Preference is for the reliable Morozov Cocktail after a very solid 3rd in a much better race last time and trip and ground no issue .
1/2pt win Morozov Cocktail @ 10/3
3.20 The drop in trip won’t help recent course winner in the mud Maggie Barrett , which was a much improved effort , but could have been flattered in a trappy novice hurdle . Misty Mani holds her form well and despite now being on a stiff enough mark and the ground being soft enough , is preferred in a winnable heat .
1/4pt win Misty Mani @ 3/1
Selected Huntingdon – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
2.00 With the ground against the in form Raffle Ticket , the double looks on for the useful The Cob , despite the 7 pound hit , and has been competitive off this mark over hurdles . Rest of rivals presently unconvincing .
1/4pt win The Cob @ 15/8
3.30 Smoking pigeon has done enough to suggest a win off this mark highly possible and the longer trip will help this former pointer .
1/4pt win Smoking Pigeon @ 11/4
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping
3.45 Despite a very poor effort in a maiden, there was huge confidence behind Ehteyat in his first handicap , going up in trip at Southwell and demolished what was just modest opposition . The 5 pound hit looks well within range but does drop in trip by a half mile , but in a race for amateur riders has the best in the field with Simon Walker . Raiff has run two good races either side of this trip , both times narrowly beaten and this late player stays on the same mark. Would be a very solid ew play but ridden by an inexperienced jockey . Just a dabble .
1/4pt ew Raiff @ 6/1
4.15 An attractive play for short odds players in Razoni , a nose 2nd at Wolver on debut and the longer trip in his favour on breeding .
1/2pt win Razoni @ 4/5
4.45 The consistent Foinix will again be close up but is making a meal out of shedding his maiden tag due to a lack of tactical pace . This C&D should help, but I can pass at 6/4, and nothing sticks out as an ew alternative .
5.15 The prolific Excel Power has progressed into a very useful handicapper and was a close 3rd , upped to 2nd , off his lofty mark of 102, making him the one to beat here . Fox Tal broke a long losing sequence when gifted a 3 horse affair at Wolver a year ago , and despite following it up with a good run, remains hard to win with .
1/4pt win Excel Power @ 6/4
5.45 The 5 times C&D winner Atrafan bounced back to form, without any warning , with a nose 2nd over C&D in a far better race . Down in Classified company , should dispose of a weak field .
1/2pt win Atrafan @ 2/1
6.15 After John is absolutely thriving after landing a C&D hat-trick and this late player put in a career best run on the all weather last time and the 4 pound hit could have been far worse .
1/2pt win After John @ 9/4
6.45 PREMIUM RACE
7.15 Kraken Power broke a long losing run yesterday with a win overC&d , but only scrambled home so the 5 pound hit clearly will have an effect . Mehmo is another who broke a long losing sequence last time with a narrow win at Southwell at this trip , but has no penalty , and can land a modest finale .
1/2ptwin Mehmo @ 5/2
Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
3.55 The versatile mare Effernock Fizz is absolutely thriving over jumps and was only narrowly defeated in a Class 2 handicap at Cheltenham in a good field off a lofty mark of 133 and previously was victorious in The Welsh Champion Hurdle , off the same mark , both times making all . She’s a regular here , despite the fact she is 0 from 17 , but did go close over C&D last March off a 4 pounds higher mark . This may be a pipe opener for her to resume duties over the sticks, but still long odds considering her profile .
1/4pt ew Effernock Fizz @ 10/1
4.30 Rockview Consort is rarely far away , including over C&D , but is making a bit of a meal shedding his maiden tag , but was a close 2nd over C&D last time , race winning form .
1/4pt win Rockview Consort @ 2/1
5.30 This is far more about quantity than quality , a typical low grade Dundalk handicap . Make The switch was a 3 lengths 4th over C&D and has a couple of pounds pull with the 2nd Well Funded . Both are hard to win with but the tip is favoured at the weights .
1/4pt win Make The Switch @ 4/1
