Bells Of stamford 3.15 @ 4/1
Represting Bob 2.59 @ 7/2
Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this mostly sharp and undulating track with a galloping straight.
2.24 Pounding Poet impressed last year with his attitude and when last seen was a very respectable 5 lengths 4th over C&D on similar ground , and enjoys a 5 pound pull with Geordie Des Champs , just a length ahead. His rival comes here on the back of good win over C&D on easy ground , but does have a stiff 7 pound penalty . Copper Coin goes well fresh but is now on a stiff enough mark while Kannopolis is an unlikely stayer .
1/2pt win Pounding Poet @ 15/8
2.59 Representing Bob is very hard to knock as in just only 5 runs in handicaps, comes out with 3 wins and 2 seconds , and his latest run was a close 2nd , but has been nudged up 2 pounds . He goes well fresh and hard seeing him far away again , and has a great will for the win .
1/2pt win Representing Bob @ 7/2
3.34 Hard seeing the drop in trip helping the lightly raced Cromwell , and this could well develop into a battle between a couple of form horses in last time Southwell winner Onesoc and the back to form C&D regular Chef De Troupe and the latter gets the nod off his good mark , despite not being the most consistent .
1/4pt win Chef De Troupe @ 4/1
Selected Redcar – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.59 Quintus Arrius didn’t come cheap but the £150,000 price tag is chicken feed to his high profile owner . The tip ran well on debut when 2nd at Ayr on similar ground making him a useful ew alternative to the short priced fav Yorkshire , a good 3rd on debut but that run came on good ground.
1/2pt ew Quintus Arrius @ 15/2
3.09 A handful of these juveniles are closely matched on what they have showed so far , but as Cavern Club’s good debut 2nd came at this trip and ground on a similar track, gets the nod .
1/4pt win Cavern Club @ 4/1
4.19 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Fakenham – good ground on this very sharp and undulating track
2.05 Hard to rule much out of this but the progressive young chaser Kap Auteuil crucially has a course win on his CV and the handicapper may not have got to the bottom of him .
1/4pt win Kap Auteuil @ 11/2
3.15 Very hard seeing youngster Anger Management following up his novice hurdle win of such a stiff mark and the longer trip another likely negative. This is very much for the taking and if Bells Of Stamford is ready to go after a 5 months absence , looks good to back up his cosy smart win off just a 4 pound higher mark .
1/2pt win Bells Of Stamford @ 4/1
4.25 The luckless Bobmahley , remains on a workable mark and main rival Oceans Red could struggle up in the ratings , down In trip and on quicker ground .
1/2pt win Bobmahley @ 5/1
Selected Haydock – heavy ground on this flat and galloping track
1.40 Destiny’s Spirit holds the dependable Lumacho on Yarmouth form , which came on easy ground . Up 5 pounds and deeper ground today , but still makes most appeal .
1/4pt win Destiny’s Spirit @ 6/1

Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping.
4.45 In the absence of any real solid form for the task ahead , happy to be with a very long odds one. Love You work put together a terrific series in the early months of this year , 4 wins , 4 seconds and a 4th in 9 runs and recently resumed duties with two very solid efforts , and considering he’s building up fitness , very likely to outrun his odds .
1/4pt ew Love Your Work @ 40/1
5.15 Bella Kopella was a clear winner over C&D last time , beating some reliable yardsticks , and against this opposition could well be up to defying the 4 pound hit . He is preferred to Bernie The Bear . up 3 pounds for a running on 2nd in a modest Wolver nursery . Noble Majesty has been entitled to do better in his last few runs , but the handicapper is giving every assistance and could be dangerous .
1/4pt win Bella Kopella @ 9/4
5.45 PREMIUM RACE
6.45 It looks a match between the two winners in the field , but as Borgi is a winner on the surface and backed that up with a big run on polytrack at this trip , could overcome an 8 months absence and be too good for Quantico .
1/4pt win Borgi @ 15/8
7.15 There was plenty of money around for the lightly raced Hart Fell last time and won pretty cosily over C&D and off just a pound higher , likely to double up .
1/2pt win Hart Fell @ 5/2
7.45 Qaarat has showed a bit more like it the last few runs and worth a dabble at long odds in a modest and winnable heat .
1/4pt ew Qaarat @ 20/1
8.15 Wee Fat Mac comes here on the back of a 40/1 win over C&D, when he looked booked for 2nd place but conjured up a willing late lunge to land the spoils . This was his first try at this trip , and just his 5th race in total . He can actually race off a 4 pound lower mark and drops into a 0 -55 . Double looks well and truly on .
3/4pt win Wee Fat Mac @ 11/4
Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
5.00 Astelia has a bit to find on official ratings , but is up against far more exposed , mostly modest and in some cases unreliable rivals and she runs for a top stable . Worth a dabble despite the wide draw and first try on the surface .
1/4pt win Astelia @ 6/1
5.30 The track hat-trick seeking Draco Pulchrac would do very well to go in again with a massive 11 pound penalty and looks an unlikely winner . Mads Black Eights is well drawn and comes here on the back of a cosy win over C&D , and looks a nice ew play in a winnable heat despite the 4 pound hit .
Nothing else for this meeting , the remaining races look very much in the lap of The Gods, with nothing having a sole clear opportunity
