Lady First in the 12.47

Today’s multi – yesterday 2 winners 9/2 & 3/1

£1 trixie & £1 treble

Lady Babs 12.47 @ 2/1

Laurentia 5.30 @ 2/1

Overstate 8.00 @ 2/1

Selected Newcastle – good to soft on this stiff and galloping track . Further rain forecast so ground likely to soften.

1.05 The free going Fenland Tiger is 2 from 2 in  handicaps and there should be no issues with  C&D and ground after a smart win at Hexham last time , but they did finish in a bit of a heap in that race, which is always a concern. The lightly raced Pileup shapes as this C&D and ground will suit .

1/4pt win Fenland Tiger @ 10/3

1.38 Not a deep race and I’m with another unexposed type in Faitque De L’Isle , who took advantage of a declining mark to win well at Ffos las, and despite a penalty , this looks easier .

1/4pt win Faitque De L’Isle @ 7/4

2.13 A trio of admirably consistent and determined types in Lock Down Luke , 2 wins and a 3rd in his last 3, Lucky Lover Boy , 4 wins and 2 seconds in his last 6 , and understandably the fav as he has no ;penalty for a recent C&D win , and the front running Genever Dragon , a win and 3 places in his last 4 , still feasibly weighted and has to be the bet at long odds.

1/4pt ew  Genever Dragon @ 16/1

2.48 The hefy penalty makes life much harder for recent C&D winner Hidden Commander and preference for the mightily consistent Greyville , who won’t mind the drop in trip around this stiff circuit .

1/2pt win Greyville @ 9/4

Selected Market Rasen – soft ground on this mostly flat and sharp track

12.47 The luckless Lady Babs comes into this in her usual solid form . She has a terrific record here and soft ground no issue . This won’t take much winning.

3/4pt win Lady Babs @ 2/1


1.55 The enthusiastic front running Bempton Cliffs is likely to have unwanted company from the free going yet generally disappointing Coastguard Station , which won’t help , but he has impressed with his attitude and could well take the 4 pound penalty in his stride . Heritier also has a 4 pound penalty for a recent smart win , coming off the pace . Hard to pick from this pair .

1/4pt rev fc Bempton Cliffs _ – Heritier

Selected Wincanton – probably good to soft on this flat and galloping track


2.40 Penalties for recent winners Don Alvaro and Forget You Not makes the double tough and preference is for the well handicapped and consistent Kakamora, who shaped well in his recent pipe opener .

1/4pt win Kakamora @ 11/4

3.50 Not a deep finale and the consistent Sami Bear ran another solid race in his recent pipeopener , and the opposition not strong .

1/4pt win  Sami Bear @ 2/1

Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack

5.30 The ex- Irish Chagell caused a 18/1 shock over C&D last time , winning narrowly in a bunched finish , and the double is unlikely up 4 pounds and racing from a wide enough draw. Laurentia has put in a cracking series of runs of late and comes here on the back of a big run over C&D from a bad draw , finishing 2nd of 16 behind one who has done well since . Up 2 pounds but has the best of the draw tonight and should land a contest low on quality .

1/2pt win Laurentia @ 2/1


7.00 There is little doubt that the handicapper has been very generous allocating a mark of just 69 to Shades Of Summer as he waltzed home over C&D in her maiden , winning by a very easy 6 lengths running to a level assessed at 76 . He’s also open to improvement in just her 5th race . She has the worst of the draw but still priced very fairly .

1/4pt win  Shades Of Summer @ 5/1

7.30 Vape is now on a roll , but unlikely to add to his recent success here down in trip , up in the ratings and with speedier rivals up front . Angle Land certainly deserves a win  , and was foiled by an unlikely 50/1 shot over C&D last time with the dodgy looking Expert Opinion , the now looking held in the handicap Dark Side Prince and Mick’s Spirit all close behind . Angle Land could have been drawn kinder , is up 2 pounds and first time blinkers a negative for the stable . The nod goes to Mick’s Spirit, far better drawn tonight .

1/4pt win Mick’s Spirit @ 4/1

8.00 The front running Overstate made all to win over C&D two starts back and backed that up with a creditable 2nd behind the mightily prolific and progressive Queen Of Ipanema . Stays on the same mark , drawn well and competition not strong .

1/2t win Overstate @ 9/4
