Selected Nottingham – soft ground on this flat and galloping track

1.10 Like A Tiger ran very well on debut at this trip , but has been easy to back today , could be doubts about the ground, but looking at his pedigree, plenty of soft ground influences there , so suddenly has become backable .

1/2pt win Like A Tiger @ 15/8

1.45 Newcomer King OF Steel runs for the highly successful Amo Racing Syndicate and cost them a cool £200,000 and plenty of soft ground influences in the pedigree but so does Nader King who was doing all of his best work late on in debut at Yarmouth and both the longer trip and softer ground will help, as will the experience .

1/4pt win Nader King @ 7/2

2.20 The clear form horse is Ashtanga , a good 3rd on debut on easy ground , and the opposition doesn’t look anything special.

1/2pt win Ashtanga @ 6/5


4.05 What a difference a win does for a horse’s confidence . Betweenthesticks was blowing countless chances, often at short odds , but it all came right when dropped to the minimum trip at Chepstow in the mud , and since then has won twice and been 2nd . He’s a prominent racer and will again run  his race, with the ground in his favour , but with his stiff 6 pound penalty , I prefer the chance of the very capable California Gem , who acts on the ground, is on a fair mark , stays this trip stoutly and as there is likely to be competition for the lead , has the race make up for a late player .

1/4pt win California Gem @ 3/1


5.15 The drop in trip won’t help the consistent Wade’s Magic or the class dropper Reigning Profit , while the switch to soft turf won’t help recent long priced tapeta winner Brandy Station or another in form tapeta horse in Tilsworth Ony Ta. The money came in for the well handicapped Captain Corcoran a few runs back in the Catterick mud , but was allowed to start at long odds at Southwell last time when making all . He has to be respected off a 5 pound higher mark , but leading this field won’t be easy and I’m with the likely leader, the soft ground loving She’sadabber , who is a few pounds high in the ratings and does prefer a stiffer track , but she’s a vey gritty soft ground low grade handicapper .

1/4pt win She’sadabber @ 6/1

Wetherby – good ground on this flat and galloping track

As usual, good racing here today , but again small fields and with plenty of horses resuming duties , and few with good records running fresh , and with plenty of these in form types on stiff enough marks . Happy just to watch .

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

2.05 A chance can be given to most of these which makes even money quotes for Holocene, most unattractive . Hard to call.

No Bet

3.15 Despite having a penalty to carry , Al Dasim will be hard to beat , but only even money .

No Bet


4.25 The drop in trip and the nudge up the ratings won’t help the admirably rough and willing Country Pyle. Night Sparkle made all for a good win at this trip at Haydock last time , and the 4 pound hit could have been worse . She’s with a top stable and wears famous colours , but won’t have her own way up front today with the capable yet out of form Achnamara in the field. Course winner Buxted Reel was given a patient ride , first time at this trip at Chelmsford City last time , and was a close 2nd , and certainly stayed this trip well . Just a pound higher but up in grade , but with a strong pace assured , certainly appeals in a race where not many count .

1/2pt  ew Buxted Reel @ 11/1

5.00 The back to form Kitten’s Dream is making his way back up the ratings again while the consistent Shuibuya Song is proven at the trip , but not on the surface . Lady Percival has dropped to a good mark and put in an improved effort in the Haydock mud last time when 3rd and running on well . The extra yardage should suit , and she’s a half sister to the classy 120 rated stayer Quickthorn .

1/4pt win Lady Percival @ 9/2

Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack

4.57 The consistent but hard to win with pair of Cashew and Mistrix may well have to wait a bit longer before breaking their ducks for the season with trip and surface the issues respectably . After a smooth win at Lingfield at this trip, Melodromatica ran to her form next time , over the same C&D , when a 2 lengths 4th off her new mark, form which puts her bang in the picture in this winnable heat , especially from a good draw . Has a good jockey and just a bit worried about her returning from a break as form running fresh is patchy . Above It All is another well drawn and reliable runner unlikely to be far away .

1/2pt  ew  Meodromatica @ 11/1

6.00 A tricky nursery and as the rewards for getting it right are skinny, happy to swerve .

No Bet


7.00 As both Out From Under and Love De Vega are both now high in the ratings and down in  trip and the former won’t have the front to himself . the luckless C&D specialist Total Commitment has his best chance for some time .

½ pt win Total Commitment@ 3/1

7.30 The nudge up the ratings and the wide draw won’t help the consistent Starter For Ten , and the same can be said about Wolver specialist Brazen Diamond . Bobby on The beat ran a cracker last time at Chelmsford City , an excellent 3rd in a better race ,running prominently from a bad draw. That gives him strong claims tonight from a much better draw and doesn’t have to lead to win . It’ hard picking between him and the consistent and well drawn Dazzerling , a good 2nd over C&D last time off this mark and gets the nod .

1/2pt  ew Dazzerling @ 7/1    1/4pt  rev fc Dazzerling – Bobby On The Beat

8.00 The fav is the lightly raced maiden Woe Betide , who could well have been flattered over C&D last time when he had a pretty soft lead, and previous runs were shockers and if his last run can be believed , gets int his first handicap on a generous mark , but I prefer looking for a bit of substance in this uncompetitive event . The well drawn Coolagh Magic has run some good races off this mark of late and has clear claims , but the nod goes to the well handicapped Fristel , who was a close 4th over C&D last time, when badly drawn , and this well drawn late player deserves a bit of luck , which hasn’t gone his way of late .

1/2pt ew Fristel @ 6/1    1/4pt  re fc Fristel – Collagh Magic

8.30 An uncompetitive finale and as recent Chelmsford City winner Monaadhil is penalised 4 pounds , plenty for a low grade handicapper ,the lightly raced and well drawn Tea Garden has held her form well since landing a Southwell handicap with a last gasp burst , and proven here .

1/2pt win Tea Garden @ 11/4
