Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Dr Zempf 2.20 @ 5/2

Heronard 3.35 @ 5/1

Cavendish 5.01 @ 5/2

Selected Kempton – good ground on this flat and sharp track


3.55 A highly competitive Class 2 handicap chase but the consistent fav Light N Strike would do very well defying a hefty 8 pound hit stepping up markedly in company . A strong pace is assured with at  least a trio of front runners and this makes  the prolific Return Ticket of interest as he stays further and despite a 3 pound penalty , did well to win on ground soft enough and he makes 536 mile round trip , and shouldn’t be far away .

¼ pt  ew Return Ticket @ 8/1

Selected Curragh – good ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track

2.20 This Listed Race looks very much a match between Buckaroo , who could find the trip too sharp and Dr Zempf , a winner on his comeback spin here giving optimism that the extra furlong would be in his favour .

½ pt win Dr Zempf @ 5/2

4.05 I was massively disappointed with the ride given to the ex-English trained Gear Up , who was the likely front runner , but was held up in a dawdle ,then powered home to be a close 4th behind Lafayette , Bear Story and the disappointing High Definition . He wont be leading this field up but with a stronger pace expected , could set the record straight .

¼ pt  win Gear Up @ 7/1

Selected Bath – firm ground on this sharp , undulating yet stiff circuit .

3.41 Gargle was only beaten 2 lengths by Mucuna at Salisbury at this trip and ground and with a 4 pound pull , over this similar track , is preferred .

¼ pt  win Gargle @ 7/2

Selected Beverley – good ground on this stiff and galloping track

2.06 The short priced fav is the Southern raider in Desert Team on a very good mark after her easy all the way win at Wolver , but her only run on turf last season was only modest so preference is for the C&d winner , the well drawn and late playing May Blossom , who will have an ideal strong pace to sit off and Danny Tudhope’s back in the saddle, who’s ridden her to both wins .

¼ pt win May Blossom @ 5/1


5.01 Cavendish was strong In the market in his recent handicap debut at Salisbury at this trip , and led them a merry old dance until waving the white flag late on , but was only beaten 2 lengths , and with that run under his belt and in what looks a lesser heat , should repay losses .

½ pt  win Cavendish @ 5/2

Selected Windsor – good to firm on this flat and galloping track

4.01 Despite a 4 pound hit , short priced fav Excel Power looks good for the double against unconvincing rivals after his smart win at Haydock on similar ground and trip .

½ pt  win Excel Power @ 6/5

Selected Warwick – good ground on this flat and sharp track

3.35 Heronford stepped up on previous with a good 2nd at Ffos Las and with his rivals now on very stiff marks , could well lie in wait and pounce .

½ pt win Heronford @ 5/1


5.50 There was very little between Starlyte , Jersey Lady and Alchemystique at this trip at Southwell on  good ground , and as the first two mentioned have gone on to run well since , the tip should come out top with a juicy weight pull .

¼ pt  ew Alchemystique @ 10/1
