Selected Bangor – good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.40 All of Dawn Raider , Glendruid and the prolific Go OnChez bring excellent credentials into the race , ticking many boxes , so the one to take on among the market leaders is the hard to win with Paseo , but for win purposes , very prickly problem .
2.15 A highly competitive handicap full of in form types ticking plenty of important boxes , but Blakeney Point has responded to the plummet in the ratings and comes here on the back of a big run at Haydock when 6th , not beaten far at all, in a Class 2 at Haydock and this tactically versatile type has been dropped a further few pounds . Shouldn’t be far away .
¼ pt ew Blakeney Point @ 8/1
3.25 Red Royalist has stamina to prove while Daranova, unlucky over C&D last time , is up 4 pounds and in grade . Pennyforapound responded very well to the change in tactics last tme , being held up and beating a good opponent at Worcester . Up just two pounds and has a course win on his CV .
¼ pt win Pennyforapound @ 2/1
No Bangor placepot
Selected Newbury – good ground on this flat and galloping track

2.10 Very little between all of these on the ratings but Scope would prefer more give , Foxes Tales has stamina doubts and both Ilarabb and Eshada are others who prefer getting their toe in . I’m with Outbox frequently and often surprised by is generous odds, which is the case today . He’s the likely leader , but wont get fussed if Without A fight wants to share the donkey work , in two runs here has a win and a place and Hollie Doyle knows him inside out , and as usual, will be determined for the win .
½ pt ew Outbox @ 15/2
3.20 Baaed is a perfect 6 from 6 and 7 from 7 looks a formality , but is 1/2 .
4.30 Looks a match but at the odds I’m with Mukaddamah, who ran yesterday’s York Listed race 2nd Grand Dame weight and went down narrowly while Nashwa’s impressive win came in a Class 5 .
¼ pt win Mukaddamah @ 4/1
Selected Newmarket – good ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track

4.40 Boardman has progressed into a useful handicapper and this late player did very well to get as close as he did at Chester last time in a race dominated by prominent racers. This is much less exacting .
½ pt win Boardman @ 15/8
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
2.35 Tricky opener but Forshan ran well at Wolver on his comeback spin at around this trip and mark. That run came on tapeta , but the stable does very well here and well drawn .
¼ pt win Forshan @ 11/2
3.10 A switch of tactics almost did the trick for Neverbeen To Paris , and was just run out of it over C&D last time out when trying to make all, and tried every inch of the way and had a reliable yardstick well held in 3rd . That wasn’t the first time he’d run well over C&D and could take some catching in a winnable contest .
½ pt win Neverbeen To Paris @ 8/1
3.45 Crimson Sand has held his form very well despite racing on a stiff enough mark but a deserved win can come his way as he’s well drawn for a prominent racer , likely to not be pestered up front , and takes on well beatable rivals. The well drawn and strong staying City Walk is the clear danger .
½ pt win Crimson Sand @ 7/4
4.20 Despite a poor draw, I was willing to be with the consistent and luckless Dubai Hope , but as his regular cheekpieces are missing, two negatives is more than enough .Badri has run well in both starts since returning from a lengthy break , nicely drawn , proven on surface and longer trip no issue .
¼ pt ew Badri @ 9/1
5.30 The late playing and lightly raced London has shaped a few times over C&D as a win is imminent , and this could be her day .
¼ pt win London @ 5/1
6.00 Amalfi Salsa could have been drawn better but still worth a dabble as she went close over C&D off a slightly higher mark and is rarely far away .
¼ pt ew Amalfi Salsa @ 7/1
Chelmsford City placepot
Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this mostly undulating and sharp track with a long galloping straight .
6.20 The clear form horse is the consistent Eglantine Du seuil , coming here on the back of a close 2nd at Cheltenham in a hot contest at around this trip . This is chunks easier and should be up to defying a 3 pound hit .
¼ pt win Eglantine Du Seuil @ 5/2
Selected Donny- good to firm on this flat and galloping track – speed track
5.33 A weak opener and the clear form horse is the prolific Bookmark , unlucky on his comeback race and this C&D, ground and mark hold no terrors .
½ pt win Bookmark @ 11/10
6.05 The consistent and likeable Enfranchise can be excused a lesser run at Chester last time in the mud, but he’ll get no peace up front from the tearaway Rhyme Scene and the strong pace will be welcomed by the effective late playing and prolific Lady Reset , a C&D winner , in form after a good run over hurdles, and despite being on a stiff enough mark, the race is so well structured to suit.
¼ pt win Lady Reset @ 4/1
6.35 Definitive Force impressed in his first ever try on turf with a clear win here last time , doing it very well over a trip short enough , and can overcome a 4 pound hit back to his optimum trip .
¼ pt win Definitive Force @ 4/1
8.10 Roudemental won with ease on his comeback spin making all at Redcar but the 6 pound hit and the prospect of Muhtassim serving it up early doesn’t present an easy task, Preference is for the vey consistent if luckless Fresh Hope, who’s ran well in all 3 races , on a workable mark and sees it out really well.
¼ pt win Fresh Hope @ 9/4
8.40 The only certainty in this pretty open sprint is a very strong pace which will be in the favour of the consistent late playing Oso Rapido , still a bit high in the ratings , but unlikely to be far away .
¼ pt ew Oso Rapido @ 8/1
