Kinta to take the 1.50 by the Roots

The Stratford multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Eagle’s Realm 1.00 @ 6/4

Destrier 2.40 @ 7/2

Durragh 3.15 @ 5/1

Selected Stratford – good ground on this flat and sharp track

1.00The lightly raced youngster Eagle’s realm was a very easy winner over C&D last time out in his first handicap , beating a reliable yardstick in Appreciate , and the 5 pound hit unlikely to stop the double .

3/4pt  win Eagle’s Dream @ 6/4

2.40 De Barley Basket is now too high in the ratings but will still bomb off in front , which wont help the cause of the prominent racing short priced fav in La Dominale , 5 pounds higher for a terrific 2nd in the valuable Market Rasen Summer Cup , but will be of great help to the very much back to form Destrier , two big runs , before an early fall next time , but his previous run a close 3rd at Uttoxeter at around this trip , is strong form .

1/2pt  win Destrier @ 7/2

3.15 The prominent racing and very consistent Encashment was only just touched off by the reliable mare Durragh at Uttoxeter , and is 2 pounds better off but won’t have the lead to herself with Hey Bob in the field , and the patiently ridden tip can again come off the pace to double up.

1/2pt  win Durragh @ 5/1

3.50 The drop in the ratings has certainly revitalised the previously struggling Judge Earle , who is now working his way back up the ratings , but only 3 pounds higher than last time. He’ll have company up front, but won’t mind that and stays this longer trip well .

1/4pt  win Judge Earle @ 10/3

Selected Chepstow – good ground on this undulating , galloping and quite stiff track

3.25 Eye of The Water went very close when last seen over C&D , and off the same mark and with an able 5 pound claimer in the saddle , could be an overdue win .

1/4pt  win Eye of The Water @ 4/1

4.00 There is a stack of early pace in this low grade handicap , all across the track and I’m with one of these in the consistent Bama Lama, 2nd in his last 2 races , one of those over this trip and mark when a short head 2nd at Ffos Las , and has run well here before . Front rank and keeps going well.

1/4pt  ew Bama Lama @ 9/1

Selected York – good to firm on this flat and galloping track

1.50 The odds on fav is Royal Ascot facile winner Dramatised , but the placed horses have done little for the form , goes up in trip, has a penalty and races on a speed track for the first time. The prominent racing Mawj landed a Group 2 last time at Newmarket , good form , but another who could be tested by this speed test . Plenty of early pace in this which makes the useful Kinta of interest . He won his first two , both on the all weather , and comes here on the back of an unlucky run in a Group 3 at Ascot behind the useful lezoo, when held for  a late run . She should have the speed for this track having won on easy tracks on the all weather , and could surprise .

1/2pt  ew  Kinta @ 9/1

2.25 Again plenty of early pace in this very valuable juvenile stakes and these are at best just Ok . The prominent racing King’s crown ran his best race ever here and after landing his maiden at Thirsk , which is just Ok  form , the small stable has aimed him at Group 2’s at Southern tracks , which is significant in the context of this winnable heat .

1/2pt  ew  Kings Crown @ 16/1

Selected Fontwell – good ground on this sharp track

5.25 A very good friend of mine is one of the owners of decent flat stayer Norman Kindu , who after little promise in novice hurdles, put in a much better effort last time at Bangor ,when looking mighty threatening , but just found the extended trip too far . Down in trip and a lovely 4 pounds lower , looks a cracking ew play . Of the opposition  , drying ground is very much against the in form Getaway Cory and stamina is an issue for both Fred Bear and rebel Royal. Hey Frankie and lil Codey are closely matched and their chances are hard to knock but as the tip is partnered by the excellent Kevin Brogan in this race for conditional jockeys , and the stable has a good record here , especially with longshots , everything in place for a good run .

1/2pt  ew  Norman Kindu @ 10/1

6.25 Despite now being on a testing mark , the reliable Percy’s Word continues to hold his form well and the booking of an able 7 pound claimer makes the task even easier in a race which will take little winning .

1/2pt  win Percy’s Word @ 10/3

6.55 A modest juvenile hurdle and as Graffiti had Never No Trouble behind on merit on their debuts at Stratford , no reason for a reversal .

1/2pt win Graffiti @ 9/4

7.25 The strong staying Dazzling Glory comes here on the back of two big runs , narrowly beaten in both and this longer trip looks very much in his favour .

1/2pt  win Dazzling Glory @ 9/4

7.55 The hat-trick looks very much on for youngster Fire Lake , just 4 pounds higher for a smart win last time . Saywhatyouwant is very poorly handicapped on what she achieved at Cartmel last time .

3/4pt win Fire Lake @ 13/8

Selected Leicester – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track

5.45 All of Hathlool , Shaladar and Temper Trap are now on stiff enough marks which makes the back to form Star Shield of good interest ., with a win and a close 3rd in his last two runs and this late player has run well here before .

1/2pt  ew  Star Shield @ 8/1

6.15 Noble Majesty comes here on the back of a running on 4th at Donny, not for the first time he’s given the impression a stiffer test would suit. Down 2 pounds and up a furlong , could be the answer.

1/2pt  ew  Noble Majesty @ 6/1

6.45 A strong gallop is on the cards and the capable Girlseannahavefun was far from disgraced last time and she can go front rank and see it out well .  Lily of The Jungle comes here on a hat-trick and has done well since joining her new stable , but the 6 pound hit in a tougher race and with other front runners in the field makes this tough looking . Fox Degree has run well coming off the pace of late , and despite a 3 pound penalty for being a close 2nd at Newmarket , is still bang in the picture , but preference is for Bonny Angel, who goes handicapping on a fair mark and this C&D should suit .

1/4pt  win Bonny angel @ 11/2

7.45 The front running See The Sea is a 128 rated hurdler and made short work of his lowly flat mark of just 63 at Carlisle , beating  couple of in form types with ease . The 4 pound hit looks well within range and in an uncompetitive finale is well preferred to Thanks Monica , up 6 pounds for an easy win at Salisbury , but did slip the field from the front and previously had stamina issues at this trip .

1/2pt win See The Sea @ 7/2
