Platinum Prince 1.00 @ 2/1
Sapphire’s Moon 2.40 @ 9/1
Raddle and Hum 2.50 @ 15/8
Selected Brighton – good ground on this undulating , sharp and tricky track
1.00A good opportunity for the reliable Platinum Prince to follow up a win at Nottingham off a 3 pound higher mark . He gave them a start and a beating that day , and still won comfortably , and the placed horses have run well since. He was ridden by Anna Gibson that day and she keeps the ride in this race for apprentices , and can still claim 7 pounds . A good pace is assured and he’s run well in two tries around here .
3/4pt win Platinum Prince @ 2/1
2.40 Hard to see Red Alert doubling up his recent win here , going up in trip and with a stiff 4 pounds hit . The late playing Sapphire’s Moon beat higher rated rivals in a modest heat over C&D , and has run well off much higher marks than today . She has yet to run a bad race at this trip and with a good pace assured , an attractive ew play .
1/2pt ew Sapphire’s Moon @ 9/1
3.10 The front running Hellavaheart certainly deserves a win for some bold efforts of late , but only run here wasn’t great . All of It’s How we Roll , Temur Khan and Silver Bubble have good form over C&D and the 8 times course winner Junoesque , is coming back down to a more appropriate mark , but still not firing totally , and of course won’t have the front to himself with Hellavaheart in the field. Temur Khan was a most unlucky 2nd over C&D last time and despite a 2 pound hit , this late player has an ideal race make up with a strong pace to chase, but the overnight rain leans me towards another late player in Go On Gal, placed in 2 of 3 tries here and on the same mark as a long priced win at Catterick last year at this trip and on easy ground .
1/4pt ew Go On Gal @ 11/1
3.40 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Newton Abbot – good ground on this flat and sharp track
Just the one play with the handicaps looking most tricky .
3.00 Geordie Des Champs comes into this on the back of 3 good runs , nor beaten far at all in any , and this extra yardage will be very much in his favour .
1/4pt win Geordie Des Champs @ 6/1

Selected Perth – possibly soft ground on this flat and sharp track
2.50 Raddle and Hum is highly consistent , but continues to find a couple too good. The overnight rain is in his favour and is likely to try and make all . He has recently run two big races at this track and a deserved win can come his way . Castletown is another consistent sort , who runs this track well , but is a pushover in the finish while recent narrow C&D winner Get With It has both a 5 pound hit to overcome and softer ground a further issue.
3/4pt win Raddle And Hum @ 15/8
4.20 The admirably prolific and consistent pair of Glen Ava and Lake Shore Drive , both run this C&D very well, but softer ground a likely issue . For Jim comes here in winning form and despite this C&d winner having a 4 pound penalty , soft ground holds no terrors .
1/4pt win For Jim @ 11/2
No Perth placepot
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track s stiff and galloping
5.30 PREMIUM RACE
6.00 It was a very warm looking York maiden in which Sigmund was a highly promising running on 7th of 17 . This stiffer test will suit and encouragement from the pedigree for this surface . Very solid fav.
3/4pt win Sigmund @ 5/6
6.30 PREMIUM RACE
7.00 The very consistent Haveyoumissedme was an excellent 2nd over C&D in the Northumberland Vase , and has held his form well since . Just a pound higher and this prominent racer is the one to beat .
1/2pt win Haveyoumissedme @ 7/4
8.00 The clear form horse is the consistent if luckless Red Astaire ,proven both at the trip and surface and only has The Crisford newcomer in Kingori to beat .
1/2pt win Red Astaire @ 13/8
8.30 Over half of the field will be battling for early domination which makes it likely that the winner will come off the pace . The well handicapped Yaahobby is a course winner and came from some way off the pace to be 3rd at Southwell in a rare try at the minimum trip, and this stiffer finish will help.
1/4pt ew Yaahobby @ 7/1
