1,25 Tahonta has gone close a few times of late and last time out was a fine 2nd over C&D , when going for home some way out and keeping on well . Nicely drawn and the young apprentice has ridden the tip well before .
1/2pt ew Tahonta @ 8/1
2,35 Bang on The Bell just doesn’t know how to run a bad race and this once front runner has become tactically versatile and comes here on the back of a running on 3rd at Chelmsford City off ths mark . He runs this track very well and looks a very lively longshot in a race where many of his rivals are likely to be anchored under penalties .

3.10 Perfect Swiss is rarely far away but wins are becoming elusive . The short priced fav is the new Mike Appleby intake in Zealot , who was only 3rd off this mark last time , but it did come from a bad draw . He is also new to the surface so preference is for the lightly raced Longsbridge Girl, who’s certainly getting closer , 2nd in her last two races, and as her last race came off this mark , and proven on the surface and trip, ticks many boxes .
1/2pt win Longsbridge Girl 11/2
4.25 It’s not rare for a runner , suddenly upping his game , which has been the case with the very much in form Bobby Joe Legg , 3 wins in his last 5 and last time out a very narrow defeat over C&D and off this mark .He’s up in grade today , but still likely to run his race at good odds.
1/4pt win Bobby Joe Legg @ 11/1
4.55 Few come into this with high hopes and even recent C&D winner Martin’s Brig , has it all to do with a stiff 5 pound hit . Both Ebury and Final Frontier are on long losing runs , but both have been receiving plenty of help from the handicapper. The tip goes to the latter who tried to make all over C&D last time but was chinned late on . Same jockey , same mark and with an absence of early pace around , could be his day.
1/4pt win Final Frontier @ 3/1

5.00 Boom Boom Boom comes here on the back of a terrific effort over C&D in a far better race , coming off the pace to be closing on the two ahead , and beaten just over a length .That was his first try at this trip , so was ridden with caution in mind regarding stamina , and as that is now proven , an even better run likely .
1/2pt win Boom Boom Boom @ 9/2
8.00 It’s not a deep race and a fine chance for the well handicapped Tara Power to upgrade a couple of good placed efforts over C&D. He was a length 4th over C&D last time , off this mark , and that form good enough to be a huge factor .
1/2pt ew Tara Power @ 7/1

5.15 The fav is the C&D double chasing Haku , but has a 5 pound penalty and goes up in grade , but a capable 7 pound claimer has been booked , so not out of this . Junkanoo defied very long odds to win here , from the worst of the draw , over a slightly shorter trip , and backed that up with another fine run over C&D . chasing home the progressive and prolific Barenboim , off this mark , giving every indication that the extra yardage would suit this determined sort .
1/2pt win Junkanoo @ 11/4
6.15 Not many of these youngsters bring encouraging form to the table and one of the form horses in Ready Reckoner , was a running on 5th at Lingfield , just outside the places at Lingfield, and as he’s 2 pounds lower , very well drawn and also likely to appreciate the extra yardage , gets the nod .
1/4pt win Ready Reckoner @ 7/2
7.15 Both the in form pair of Court Of Session and Aguaplano have been nudged up the ratings for only coming 2nd , so preference is for recent smooth C&D winner Top Secret , only 2 pounds higher than his win .
1/2pt win Top Secret @ 5/1
8.15Adace comers here on the back of a course win, and is just a pound higher . She was a close 4th over C&D previously off this mark and from another wide draw. It’s not a deep finale as the C&D hat-trick chasing Rooful , has a stiff 6 pound penalty to overcome .
