Selected Nottingham – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
1.50 Exoplanet impressed on his debut winning on good ground at Newbury but when upped in grade to a Group 3, struggled over today’s trip . He carries a penalty and faces soft ground for the first time and will find it hard containing the Gosdens’ trained Torito , a short priced fav on debut in the Newbury mud , running well to be a close 3rd and should go two places better today .
1/2pt win Torito @ evens
2.20 Mudskipper is proven on soft ground , is on a fair mark and should find the extra yardage to his liking in a race where it’s hard fancying much else .
1/2pt win Mudskipper @ 2/1
2.50 Fix You won at the first time of asking early last season in the Thirsk mud at this trip , but next time struggled in a Vichy listed race again on soft ground . She only resumed duties recently , almost a year off the card , very worrying for a young horse , and ran well to be 2nd at Kempton , but as she could well bounce , and is a very short price, well worth opposing her with the consistent Thankuappreciate , ending the season with 2 seconds and a win . He’s on a fair mark , effective at the trip and ran well on good to soft , so worth trying on deeper ground .

4.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.55 Not a deep race and worth be with the very much back to form Mabre , whose been going very well on the all weather as too has Eleven Eleven , but the tip crucially handles the mud .
1/4pt win Mabre @ 3/1
Selected Southwell – probably good to soft on this flat and sharp track
4.05 PREMIUM RACE
5.05 Kingsfort Hill runs for a top stable and off a reduced mark was a close 2nd over C&D last time out. He stays on the same mark and preferred in an open heat .
1/4pt win Kingsfort Hill @ 11/4
5.40 Mole Court is unpenalized for his fortunate win last time , but is still very much the form horse in a race more about quantity than quality . Softer ground today , but still worth a try .
1/4pt win Mole Court @ 4/1
Selected Catterick – soft ground on this undulating and sharp track
2.10 Captain Corcoran comes here on the back of a good 4th of 16 in the Thirsk mud and as he goes well here , represents a tidy ew play .
1/4pt ew Captain Corcoran @ 8/1
3.15 This all points to the in form Master Camacho , proven on the ground and trip no concern , but 6/4 about a maiden not for me .
4.10 Special Mayson was 2nd in this race last year off a similar mark, ground and break , and another good run expected .
1/4pt win Special Mayson @ 4/1
4.48 Not a deep race and despite recent runs being disappointing , C&d Glory and Honour winner is a soft ground winner and back down to a workable mark .
1/4pt Glory and Honour @ 9/1
5.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
6.00 Topo Chico is highly consistent but remains a maiden but his form is well good enough to be involved once more . Runs the track and trip well .
1/4pt ew Topo Chico @ 8/1
7.00 PREMIUM RACE
7.30 Fantasy Believer is a 3 time C&D winner , his last win coming off this mark and when last seen over C&D was a cracking 5th of 14 in a red hot Class 2 handicap , off a 3 pound lower mark , and was unlucky not to finish closer . He was entitled to run better on his comeback spin at Newcastle but with two front runners in the field, sure to go a strong gallop providing a great race make up for this late player . Lovely longshot .
1/2pt ew Fantasy Believer @ 18/1
8.00 Solanna is a triple course winner, now on a stiff enough mark but went close here last time at just short of this trip and off this mark and the extra yardage may open a new door .
1/2pt ew Solanna @ 15/2
