She can Step up in the 3.05

Today’s Fortune for a Fiver

50p ew Trixie & 50p ew treble

Affable 2.30 @ 5/1

Everylittlestep 3.05 @ 8/1

Indiana Grey 3.40 @ 8/1

Selected Gowran Park – good to soft on  this undulating and sharp track

1.20 La Dolce Vita was far from disgraced in a Nass Group 3 last time and both the drop in class and longer trip will suit .

1/4pt win La Dolce Vita @ 9/4

2.30 Affable won three times last year but was then hot with a big penalty and has taken some time to work down to a more appropriate mark . Definite signs last time with a one length 3rd of 17 at The Curragh over 6 furlongs and back to her best trip, could be ready to strike again .

1/4pt  win Affable @ 5/1

3.05 Everylittlestep hasn’t had a great deal of racing but has run very well in her last two runs , both coming ovr C&D . She went for home a long way out last time but Neil Mccullagh made his move slightly prematurely and was gunned down late on , but was still a commendable 3rd of 15 beaten just two lengths and off the same mark and a slightly more patient ride, could be her day.

1/2pt  ew  Everylittlestep @ 8/1

3.40 Indiana Grey is better known for her exploits on the Dundalk polytrack but has showed she is no slouch on turf and comes here on the back of a very decent effort when 6th of 15 over C&D , beaten 4 lengths but down 2 pounds today making her an attractive ew play .

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


2.47 Laasudood is the likely front runner  and entitled to go well after a close 2nd on his comeback spin at Nottingham , a run which puts him on a workable mark , but slight preference is for the reliable Sip And Smile , who was in the wrong place when the sprint started at Sandown last time , but still finished a 2 and half length 3rd behind the admirable Roxzoff , 4 wins and 2 close 2nds in his last 6 ! but the 6 pound hit will surely test . The tip wears first time cheekpieces which  have helped this stable’s runners in the past .

1/4pt win Sip And Smile @ 7/2

3.22 Only 3 count and the odds on fav is the lightly raced Real Dream , who runs in The Derby wining colours for Sir Michael Stoute . His dame was a top notch performer but on breeding , Real Dream is not assured of getting this longer trip , which gives the nod to the consistent World without Love , who has proved her stamina with a good 2nd in a Windsor handicap last time .

1/4pt win World Without Love @ 7/2



5.07 I was one of the owners of Qwicken , but forgot  to renew , but I still keep a close eye on her . She has never repeated her cracking debut run when 2nd at 150/1 in the Thirsk mud and her handicap mark has plummeted due to a number of disappointing efforts . She dropped in grade last time and ran well to be 3rd , a run which puts her on a workable mark in this modest handicap .

1/4pt   ew  Qwicken @ 18/1

5.42 Another modest handicap and a decent chance can be given to the lightly raced Pepper Arden a decent 4th in her first handicap last time and bred for this longer trip .

1/4pt  win Pepper Arden @ 6/1

Been through Downpatrick closely , but nothing I’d like to recommend

Selected Salisbury – good to firm on this undulating , stiff and galloping track

2.40 Crystal Casque certainly comes to life here with 2 wins and 3 places in 6 starts ! and her last win came over C&D off a 3 pound lower mark but ew claims in what looks a winnable heat .

1/4pt  ew Crystal Casque @ 10/1
