Gemini the Star bet in the 5.50

Today’s Multi 50p ew trixie & 50p ew treble

Arcadian Nights 1.30 @ 13/2

Mega Marvel 2.05 @ 7/1

Montassib 3.45 13/2

Selected Sandown – probably good to soft on this stiff and galloping track


1.40 On official figures , the short priced fav Jonbon has it to find with most of these and won’t have the front to himself with the headstrong and capable Editeur Du Gite in the field . This strong pace will favour the in form and classy Irish raider Captain Guinness .

1/2pt win  Captain Guinness @ 5/1

2.15 As last week’s Scottish Grand National hero Kitty’s Light has no penalty , he is the fav , and has run well in this race before . I prefer a dabble on the prolific mud ,loving strong staying Coolville , who’ll be staying when most have cried enough .

1/4pt  ew Coolville @ 8/1

2.50 The progressive Irish raider was running a mighty race in the recent Cheltenham Gold Cup until taking a late fall, but the drop in  trip may well county against him . The useful Eldorado Allen runs this track well and stays this trip well . The front running Solo has a bit to prove at this trip on soft ground .

1/4pt  win Eldorado Allen @ 13/2

4.00 The mercurial Goshen has to go right handed and soft ground and this dual course winner could be hard to catch .

1/2pt win Goshen @ 11/4

Selected Haydock – good ground on this flat and galloping track

1.30 Arcadian Nights has won 3 of his last 5 starts , all on the all weather , and just 2 pounds higher today .He has improved since tackling this longer trip and has run respectably on good ground before . Must have a chance in a winnable heat with Billy Loughnane claiming 5 pounds .

1/2pt  ew Arcadian Nights @ 13/2

2.05 Despite the big field not many with high hopes and worth trying another in form all weather horse in Mega Marvel , still on a workable mark and has form on quick turf and is preferred to the back to form , capable but inconsistent Redzone .

1/2pt  ew Mega Marvel @ 7/1

3.45 Top trainer William Haggas has plundered this prize twice with just 3 runners and Montassib can put a lesser run behind him in the Lincoln on heavy ground , where he was close to being favourite . The likely very strong pace will suit well

1/2pt ew  Montassib @ 13/2

4.20 Very tricky stuff in this 3yo handicap with a stack of unexposed types but I’m sticking with what we know . The consistent Coco Jack has been taking on some hot company of late and still ran well. Off a reduced mark , can go well .

1/4pt  ew Coco Jack @ 10/1

Selected Leicester – very soft ground on this stiff and galloping track

3.40 Society Lion comes here on the back of a fine win in the Haydock mud , coming off the pace . Up just 3 pounds and this stiff C&D will suit .

1/4pt win Society Lion @ 4/1

4.50 I am a part owner of the well handicapped mare Ivy Avenue who was just outstayed close home when running a cracker. Conditions will suit and another good run  expected , just hoping she doesn’t bounce , 2nd run back after a long break .

1/4pt win Ivy Avenue @ 4/1

5.25 In an ordinary sprint handicap worth chancing the lightly raced Laertes , who ended last season with a good 3rd in the Catterick mud in his first handicap and off the same mark , has clear claims .

1/4pt  ew Laertes @ 12/1

No Leicester placepot

Selected Ripon – soft ground on this undulating and sharp track

4.10 With a stack of early pace around. Mostly drawn low , the action is likely to be far side and the lightly race but very capable Illusionist can strike late .

1/4pt win Illusionist @ 5/1

4.40 The ultra reliable and determined Capital Theory has been terrific on the all weather of late off around this mark and handles the mud .
1/4pt win  Capital Theory @ 3/1

5.15 The luckless Darkness comes here on  the back of a fine 2nd in the Redcar mud . Ground remains in his favour and extra furlong fine . Could be his day .

1/4pt win  Darkness @ 7/2

5.50 The very consistent Gemini Star looks good in the Lucky Last . On  a good mark, soft ground suits well as does this extra furlong .

1/2pt win Gemini Star @ 7/2

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

2.35 Three By Two was a fine winner over C&D just a few days ago and the double looks on .

1/2pt  win Three By Two @ 3/1

3.10 The ultra consistent Sir Bob holds his form very well and shapes like an out and out stayer.

1/2pt  ew Sir Bob @ 9/1

4.25 Anything crossing The Irish Sea has to be of interest and the Dan Skelton trained Flegmatic comes here on the back of a big run when 2nd in a hot Kempton handicap . Drying ground very much in his favour .

1/2pt win Flegmatic @ 10/3


Punchestown placepot







16 bets

Selected Donny – soft ground on this flat and galloping track

5.40 Not a deep race and the consistent all weather mare Miss Bella Brand remains on a workable mark and handles the ground. The 4 timer chasing Rhythm demands maximum respect with just a 3 pound penalty .

1/4pt win Miss Bella Brand @ 4/1

6.45 Sterling Knight ended last season with a soft ground double and as he comes to hand early can defy the 4 pound hit .

1/2pt win Sterling Knight @ 9/4


8.15 Cinque Verde never runs a bad one and her recent soft ground close 3rd at this trip and mark is the best form on offer .

1/2pt win Cinque Verde @ 4/1

Donny placepot







16 bets

Selected Wolver – all weather tapeta

8.00 A fine chance for course specialist International Law to convert a number of recent good placed efforts into a well deserved win against modest opposition .

1/2pt win International Law @ 4/1

8.30 The front running Captain St Lucifer doesn’t win many but went very close off this mark over C&D recently and from the plot draw ,this could be his night .

1/4pt win Captain St Lucifer @ 9/2

9,00 This looks very much a match but at this trip and at the weights , course regular Inexplicable gets the nod over recent winner Okeanos .

1/4pt win Inexplicable @ 9/4

No Wolver placepot
