Selected Nottingham- good to firm on this flat and galloping track

2.10 I’m happy to try the newcomer Merrimack , a £260,000 purchase for a top stable .

1/4pt win Merrimack @ 11/2

3.10 This has a winnable look to it and worth trying handicap newcomer in Hildegard , on a fair mark after some OK runs in maidens at around this trip and quick ground . Runs for a good stable .

1/4pt win  Hildegard @ 5/1

3.45 A competitive Class 3 handicap but as a strong pace is likely , the very well handicapped Gulliver , responded well to the ease last time with an unlucky looking close 4th at Ripon on quick ground . Could be his first win for over 2 years .

1/4pt win Gulliver @ 6/1

4.20 The drop in trip won’t help the in form Bayraat and this looks good for recent C&D winner Dolly Gray , who in her first race on quick turf , and dropping in trip , made all , and came home clear of Hello Me , who won last night . She’s likely to have her own way up front again and actually drops into Class 6 company , and can overcome the 5 pound hit , despite carrying a big weight .

1/2pt win Dolly Gray @ 7/4

4.55 The late playing Spanish Angel , has been close up in his last three races , the most recently an unlucky looking 2nd at Thirsk on quick ground , so conditions and C&D should suit fine . A good pace is likely and looks good to come off the pace for a deserved win .

3/4pt win Spanish Angel @ 2/1

5.30 This could be fought out by a pair of in form long standing maidens in Bold And Loyal and Ice Shadow , but as the latter has been dropped significantly in the ratings of late and was only beaten a length in his first try at this trip last time at Redcar on quick ground , has conditions and probably C&D in his favour.

1/4pt win Ice Shadow @ 10/3

Selected Worcester – good ground on this flat and galloping track .

5.15 Calisto’s King continues to disappoint and this drop in trip hardly likely to help his cause . Both Mole Court and Sinister Minister come here on the back of good 2nds over C&D , but as Mole Court is more likely to run his race , gets the verdict .

1/2pt win Mole Court @ 11/4

6.50 The useful mare Martello Sky is down to a good mark and a return to this trip a positive . Opponents beatable as they would either prefer softer ground or a longer trip .

1/4pt win Martello Sky @ 3/1

9.00 Nibras Gold just got the better of John Betjaman at Ffos Las last time on quick ground . Both are up in the ratings , but in an uncompetitive heat , the 3 pound pull gives the tip an edge .

1/4pt win John Betjaman @ 11/4

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

8.50 A competitive finale but another good run can be expected by the thriving Blue Yonder , narrowly foiled in his hat-trick bid , unlucky to bump into one , and there was 4 lengths back to anything else . Goes up 4 pounds after today , so it will be harder in future .

1/2pt win Blue Yonder @ 7/2
