50p ew Trixie & 50p ew treble
Revolutionary Man 5.35 @ 9/2
Princess Shabnam 3.15 @ 9/1
D’Jango 7.40 @ 15/2
Selected Bath – firm ground on this undulating , sharp but stiff track
2.15 Full Forward had Pink Lily just behind when they were 2nd & 3rd at Salisbury on easy ground , but with a 4 pound pull , the advantage should be even clearer , especially as the tip has a win on quick turf .
1/4pt win Full Forward @ 10/3
3.25 The fast ground is the key factor and despite a 4 pound hit for a win on the all weather , Four Adday remains well treated and quick ground fine .
1/4pt win Four Adday @ 7/2
4.30 Another uncompetitive heat and the well handicapped The Cola Kid , put in a much better run last time when a strong finishing 4th over C&D . On a losing run , but opposition weak .
1/4pt win The Cola Kid @ 7/2
5.05 Fair and Square comes here on the back of a fine effort when 2nd over C&D but his record of 0 from 38 is a massive turn off , as too are his stats on quick turf . We’re Reunited comes here on the back of two fine efforts since resuming duties and this dual course winner has form on firm ground .
1/4pt win We’re Reunited @ 9/2
5.35 The trip is likely to be too short for Ermin Street while recent Newbury winner Mabre has no penalty but firm ground a big worry . Revolutionary Man came into his most recent race in top form from the all weather , and can race off a 10 pound lower mark on turf , and was only narrowly touched off at Yarmouth on quick ground off this mark . Compensation awaits.
1/2pt win Revolutionary Man @ 9/2
Selected Goodwood – good ground on this undulating , sharp and tricky track
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
3.35 PREMIUM RACE
4.10 Gregory impressed winning a Haydock maiden well on debut and his top stable has aimed his immediately into Listed Class, but is a warm order to oblige . I prefer a play on the promising Batemans Boy , a smart winner at Haydock last season and followed up with a highly respectable 4th in a Newmarket Group 3 .
1/4pt win Batemans Boy @ 9/1
5.20 Quicker ground may well catch the reliable Blazeon Five out while the prolific Melakaz could well struggle with an 8 pound hit . First Emperor has been going well at this trip and mark on the all weather , and was noted running on well last time on turf , over a trip short of his best .
1/4pt win First Emperor @ 6/1
No Goodwood placepot
Selected Haydock – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
2.05 As Maghlaak has it to prove on quick turf , preference is for the consistent Thunder Max , on a good mark , rarely far away and handles quick ground .
1/4pt win Thunder Max @ 13/2
3.15 Last season the admirable Gale Force Maya took her form to an impressive new level , but the wheels have fallen off in her last three runs and can only be watched for now . The prominent racing Princess Shabnam was another big improver last season , getting the better of Gale Force Maya in a Ponty fast ground Listed event . She comes here on the back of an encouraging effort at Newmarket on easy ground and appeals at the ratings on fast turf . Nicola Currie rides her well but the jockey hasn’t been firing of late .
1/2pt ew Princess Shabnam @ 9/1
No Haydock placepot
No advice for Ireland
Selected Worcester – good ground on this flat and galloping track
5.40 The ultra consistent Opening Bid did well when 2nd on his recent chase debut and can get the better of rivals hard to fancy .
1/2pt win Opening Bid @ 9/4
6.10 Balko Saint has run two mighty races of late at this trip, mark and ground . He’s the clear form horse and relatively long odds considering the task ahead . Only concern is that David Noonan is finding wining tough .
1/2pt win Balko Saint @ 9/4
7.40 Django has been going pretty well over fences and the switch to hurdles no issue for this C&D winner . Ground will suit much more than most .
1/2pt win D’Jango @ 7/1
8.40 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Ponty – good to firm on this undulating , galloping and very stiff circuit .
6.25 Both Global Spirit and Garden Oasis like to get on with it , both are effective over C&D and are on very good marks on ground they will like , but both come here on a series of poor efforts . The in form Broctune Red is well drawn for his customary late charge , he was a close 2nd at Beverley last time and runs his best races on stiff tracks . Quick ground is Ok.
1/2pt win Broctune Red @ 13/2
