Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta
1.05 Thaayer is on a long losing run , but is getting plenty of help from the handicapper and responded well last time out, it coming over C&D , when a nose 2nd ! He stays on the same mark in this apprentice’s handicap and is partnered by an in form jockey , who’s certainly getting the hang of this racing game .
1/4pt win Thaayer @ 3/1
2.10 The once useful Ornate is really struggling of late and keeps getting dropped chunks by the handicapper , but no response . He is well drawn low on the straight track and still likely to burn up the track for about half of the contest , then disappear . Street Life and Glasstrees fought out a finish at Wolver recently and if anything this straight track will really suit the tip, who is also ridden today an able 5 pound claimer .
1/4pt win Glasstrees @ 5/1
2.45 PREMIUM RACE
3.20 Low grade stuff but as we know all about the majority of these , worth being with one of the younger horses in Hoots Toots, not beaten far at all in a competitive 3yo handicap over C&D last time , and unlucky not to finish closer. Prominent racer .
1/2pt win Hoots Toots @ 10/3
4.30 Not a strong field but with plenty of early pace around, very decent chance of the late playing and in form Arnold to pounce late . He was a good 2nd at Newcastle last time behind one who went on to win comfortably under a penalty . My very good friend Suzanne , is one of the owners of Babe Alicious, and she was simply thrilled when at the 16th time of asking , finally shed her maiden tag , with a gutsy win at Leicester . The 4 pound higher mark will test, but she is proven over C&D and will again run a good race .
1/4pt win Arnold @ 3/1
Selected Cartmel – good ground on this undulating and sharp track
2.14 Liffeydale Dreamer has taken her form to a new level of late and this tripe 3 times C&d winner is just 4 pounds higher than a recent gutsy display from the front , and could exploit a winnable looking race . The massively consistent Jony Max , 4 wins , 7 seconds and a 3rd in his last 12 ! has a bit to prove switching from fences .
1/2pt win Liffeydale Dreamer @ 11/4
2.50 Without any warning at all, the very well handicapped The Garrison , won very well at Stratford , 10 pounds out of the weights ! so runs today off a 3 pound lower mark , but won’t have the front to himself , which could set things up for recent C&D winner Glan Y gors, 4 pounds higher , but this race is likely to be set up for him .
1/4pt win Glan Y Gors @ 6/1
3.24 You can’t go far wrong following local trainer Jimmy Moffat here and he runs two prolific course winners in the massively improved front running Rapid Flight , a perfect 3 from 3 over C&D , and Dressedforsuccess 4 from 5 over C&D . The latter’s form is just a touch stronger .
1/4pt win Dressedforsuccess @ 5/1
3.59 The once useful Dr Sanderson comes here on a track hat-trick and did very well to beat another track star in Lermoos Legend , 2 wins and a 2nd in 3 tries, dropping to the minimum trip , and previously was a smart winner over C&D . The 3 pound hit could have been far worse and this race is likely to be run to suit with both Course regulars Tonto’s Spirit , who know is hard to win with , and Sword Of Fate sure to bomb off. Lermoos Legend is closely matched with the tip at the weights, but does have stamina to prove .
1/2pt win Dr Sanderson @ 10/3
Selected Chepstow – good ground on this undulatuing , galloping and quite stiff track
1.46 . The two form horses Gumais and Coco Hill , have better form over longer trips , so worth trying Wedgewood , a close 2nd off this lowly mark at Brighton , and the shorter trip in her favour .
1/4pt win Wedgewood @ 8/1
2,56 PREMIUM RACE
3.31 The track specialist Connie’s Rose comes here on a course hat-trick, but is a massive 9 pounds higher for her C&D , and was all out to do so. She again will try to make all, and will have company from another in form course specialist in Redredrobin , who is climbing the weights . The strong pace will set tis up nicely for the well handicapped Gilt Edge , a good 2nd over C&D last time , coming off the pace .
1/4pt win Gilt edge @ 11/4
4.41 The admirably consistent Macs Dilemma was an easy all the way winner over C&D and has no penalty and again likely to have his own way up front under the same 5 pound claimer . He’s been easy to back today , but hat doesn’t put me off .
1/2pt win Macs Dilemma @ 11/4
Selected Ripon – good ground on this undulating and sharp track
2.33 Peripetia was a surprise winner over C&D last time with Bearwith and Make A profit a few lengths behind . The 5 pound hit looks harsh enough but this prominent racer has a far better draw than his two chief rivals and could make that pay .
1/2pt win Peripetia @ 15/2
3.08 A good quality Class 2 full of in form runners . A strong pace is assured with C&D specialist Garden Oasis , who’s now a bit high in the ratings, sure to go on , as too is the useful handicapper Arzano . Veteran Scottish Summit holds his form well and this late player has been given a chance by the handicapper and he’s hit the frame 4 times in 5 visits here !
1/4pt ew Scottish Summit @ 12/1
5.26 The hat-trick seeking Masque Of Anarchy has a stiff penalty and won’t have the lead to himself with the determined front running Point Of Honour in the field. This should set things up for the back to form late playing Just Hiss .
1/2pt win Just Hiss @ 15/8
Selected Epsom – good ground on this undulating, sharp and tricky circuit .
3.15 Lord Rapscallion is consistent , if hard to win with, and was recently a close 2nd over C&D in a big field off a higher mark .
1/4pt ew Lord Rapscallion @ 7/1

5.00 PREMIUM RACE
5.35 A fiercely competitive finale and we can expect the usual honest run from the ultra reliable and keen Brazen Bolt , but he is climbing the ratings. Flame of Freedom won this last year off a 2 pound lower mark and was a close 3rd over C&D behind another course specialist in Marlay Park, but does have a 3 pound pull .
1/4pt win Flame Of Freedom @ 13/2
