Selected Punchestown – good to soft on this undulating and galloping track
12.40 Invictus Machin certainly looked good when winning on debut in the Down Royal mud , beating 19 others, giving them a start and a beating , so today’s gallop will suit him fine as his only two serious rivals, the prolific pair of Carnfunnock and Itswhatunitesus , both like to cut out the running , which should set things up nicely for the tip . The bookies make all three 7/4 shots
1/2pt win Invictus Machin @ 7/4
1.10 A wide open big field stayers handicap hurdle but another good run can be expected by the in form Ballyglass Beauty , no worse than 4th in her last 4 runs , all in big fields and no disgrace last time when chasing home the incredibly progressive and prolific Jungle Prose over C&D , when given a prominent ride , and never stopped trying .
1/4pt ew Ballyglass Beauty @ 8/1
3.10 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
12.50 The Godolphin colt Tagabawa won well on debut at Wolver , and short odds to double up but carries the dreaded penalty, switches surface and has a tricky draw. Scenic did well to be 4th over C&D in a deep looking maiden last time . She encountered trouble in that race , but is far better drawn today and shouldn’t be far away , and should make her experience tell against mostly newcomers.
1/4pt ew Scenic @ 8/1
3.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
6.00 At the weights , Evolicatt has a comfortable buffer over the others , but two previous runs on polytrack have not been her best . Do It For Love ran very well in a recent Lingfield nursery at this trip , beaten just over a length , albeit off a mark of just 57 . but that still puts her in the picture and a capable 5 pound claimer keeps the ride .
1/4pt ew Do It For Love @ 7/1
6.30 Scramble ran well last time out at Kempton , when given a prominent ride and sticking on very well and had the disappointing Bonkersinabundance a few lengths behind . She drops in trip but well drawn to take them along , and sees her races out very well . The fav is the once raced Giant , who run was 2 months ago , a decent effort when 7th at Newmarket , but of course, both an absence to overcome and has it to prove on synthetics .

7.00 Hard seeing Lord Rapscallion doubling up on his recent C&D win , breaking a losing run of 28 months with a stiff 4 pound hit , while G’Daay looks also to have reached his ceiling . Maysong is rarely far away , and lost nothing last time out at Kempton splitting a pair of very much in form types.
1/4pt win Maysong
7.30 The enthusiastic Araifjan ran another cracker over this , his favourite C&D , when beaten by the smallest of noses by another admirable type in Alafdhal . 3 wins in his last 4. Both have been nudged up the ratings , which gives Come On Girl a decent chance, but she has spurned easier chances than this of late . I’m with the tip to go all the way.
1/4pt win Araifjan @ 7/2
