Selected Southwell – good ground on this flat and galloping track

1.00Do it For Thy Sen won this last year , with ease , on similar ground and quickly went 2 from 2 over C&D soon afterwards . He comes here in peak form after a narrow defeat to the revitalised Oxwich Bay , and despite a 2 pound hit ,  this looks a golden opportunity .

¾ pt  win Do It For Thy Sen @ 11/10

2.02 There was little wrong with Sorceress Medea’s 2nd over C&D last time out on similar round and attractive play at the odds .

¼ pt  win Sorceress Medea @ 5/1

2.32 Balkotic was a facile winner at Sedgefield when stepped up in trip , and has found himself in a very weak heat , but that race was over much further , sand he’s clearly a strong stayer , but had to be chivvied along a few times to maintain the advantage , so around this tight track , would do well to double up off just a 4 pound penalty .

No Bet

3.02 A similar race with Red Maple the clear form horse but was another who won its race through staying and you just wonder around this speed track , if he’ll be caught out , but still remains the likely winner .

No Bet

3.32 Alchemystique is a regular over C&D and is certainly running well enough to land this winnable heat .

¼ pt  win Alchemystique @ 7/2

Selected Bath – good to soft on this sharp, undulating and stiff track

1.15 Sisterandbrother landed a gamble on his first start for Milton Harris , just getting the better of the admirably consistent course specialist Blue Hero . Both have been penalised , but the tip is by far likely to stay the extra yardage and act on the ground .

½ pt  win Sisterandbrother @ 11/10




4.20 The soft ground is no use to the very hard to win with Master Grey while the unexposed charlie’s Yard won well on his handicap debut , when well  supported at Kempton . He’s up 5 pounds which looks Ok , but a much different test today , down in trip , on this less conventional track and on softer ground . eagles Dare has responded well to the drop in the ratings with s couple of decent efforts of late . He’s run some good races here and also optimism for him staying this far in the mud ,by reference to his record .

¼ pt   ew  Eagles Dare @ 8/1

Selected Bangor – good to soft on this flat and sharp track

1.40 Very much a match , but the C&D form of Could Be trouble , plus being proven on the ground , gives him the nod over the unexposed Mortlach .

½ pt win Could Be trouble @ 7/4

2.11 A wea handicap and this could finally be the consistent Methusalar’s day as he’s proven at the trip off around this mark , more than his rivals can boast .

¼ pt win Methusalar @ 2/1

4.11 Butler’s Brief won this very well last year in the mud and comes here on the back of a very solid effort over C&D off this mark and in higher grade , and slight easing of the ground , gives him handsome hopes of the double .

¼ pt  win Butler’s brief @ 7/4

Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack

4.35 It says plenty about a race when the short priced fav is the very hard to win with Mafia Power , just 1 from 23 , unproven at this trip and comes here on the back of a couple of very tame efforts , Antonine road returned from 2 years off recently to run a decent race at this trip at Wolver , but 2nd race back is always the acid test for long time absentees . Dual C&d winner Tralee Hills is on a stiff enough mark nowadays but this late player comes into this in his usual good form . Antonine Road should give him a good target to aim at .

¼ pt  win Tralee Hills @ 7/2


6.40 Phinow ran Open Mind to a few lengths at Chelmsford City , and the 6 pound pull should be enough to reverse the form . He’s only lightly raced and comes here on the back of a smart win at Wolver at the minimum , which puts him on a very good mark and has a lot less to prove than the other market leaders .

½ pt  win Phinow @ 4/1

Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta , the track is stiff and galloping

5.00 A case can be made for many in this low grade handicap but preference is for the well handicapped Sugarpiehoneybunch , who certainly improved for the step up in trip over C&D last time , finishing strongly to be a close 3rd . Jason Hart takes over from an inexperienced rider , so fair to  expect even better .

¼ pt  win Sugarpiehoneybunch @ 13/2

5.30 Despite now being on a testing mark, a chance at good odds can be given to the enthusiastic front running Boasty , who may well get his own way up front and take a bit of catching .

¼ pt  win Boasty @ 8/1

6.00 Eldar Eldarov gained many admirers when winning very well on debut at Nottingham , running to a lofty level of 94 , comfortably the best form in the race and nice odds available as the bookies prefer the chance of recent Ayr winner Post Impressionist , but Eldar has the best credentials .

½ pt win Eldar Eldarov @ 13/8

7.00 The odds on fav is recent Kempton winner Substantial , but the 6 pound hit looks very harsh for the win of around a length but the longer trip may bring about some improvement . As Summa Peto and invincibly are sure to bomb out , the strong pace will very much suit the useful veteran Scottish Summit , 2nd in his last two runs , both off this mark and both times good form and there was nothing wrong with his only other run  here .

½ pt  ew Scottish Summit @ 10/1

7.30 A chance can be given to many in this competitive low grade handicap and I’m happy to be with one of the longshots in course winner Biplane , a 2 lengths 5th over C&D 2 starts back and now 2 pounds lower and ran well for a long way on turf last time . Lovely longshot .

¼ pt   ew  Biplane @ 22/1
