Paws For Thought 4.55 @ 7/2
Satin Snake 8.00 @ 4/1
Selected Chester – good to soft on this tight and flat track where a low draw and a prominent ride usually advantageous
3.15 Definitely worth a try on the unbeaten Duke Of Oxford , two easy wins on the all weather and nothing to prove at the trip , while all of his rivals , on pedigree , are from sure to stay . Both wins came on the all weather , but the sire is an influence on soft ground .
1/4pt win Duke Of Oxford @ 16/1
3.45 There is a stack of early pace in this but the well drawn California Gem comes here on the back of a close 3rd in her comeback spin . Soft ground no issue nor is a tight track .
1/4pt win California Gem @ 7/1
4.20 Worth a try on recent Windsor 2nd El Jasor at this trip and on soft ground, and that form isn’t far away from the best in the field , so a lively longshot .
1/4pt ew El Jasor @ 16/1
4.55 Course regular Paws for Thought was a very close 2nd in this last year , on similar ground and returning from a similar length break . Nicely drawn for a front runner and despite his modest win record , no excuses today .
1/4pt win Paws For Thought @ 7/2
Selected Kelso – good to soft on this undulating and sharp track with a long galloping straight.
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.30 Looks good for the in form Bollingerandkrug , but I can afford to watch at even money.
I’m swerving a generally uncompetitive card at Fontwell where the many short priced favs are the more obvious winners , except for the opener which looks too hard to call .
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
7.00 The fav is the clear form horse is the down in grade Four Adaay , who is 2 from 2 on polytrack but those wins were 2 years ago and the extra furlong is no help . You’re never too sure what Company Mix will turn up , 4 good runs and 7 abject ones in her last 11 but won over C&D 2 starts back beating a decent field and just a pound higher tonight . Worth a dabble .
1/4pt win Company Mix @ 20/1
7.30 PREMIUM RACE
8.00 The triple C&D winner Satin Snake is holding his form very well and this front runner could well have the front to himself and hold off the dangerous pair of Lil Speciale and Hickory , both C&D winners .
1/4pt win Satin Snake @ 4/1
