3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Brief Times 2.15 @ 5/2
Fly The Nest 3.05 @ 7/2
Mumcat 7.45 @ 3/1
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
12.15 A weak low grade handicap and despite being on a long losing run , the very well handicapped May Remain comes here on the back of a solid 2nd over C&D behind a very much in form rival and odds make him worth a dabble in a very modest heat .
1/4pt win May Remain @ 5/1
12.50 Say Grace is another on a losing run , but has been running well over C&D in better grade and if she gets a good gallop to sit off , can pick these off at long odds . Only problem is that a good clip is not assured .
1/4pt ew Say Grace @ 12/1
2.30 Siam Fox was running off marks in the 90’s not that long ago , but thee had been few encouraging signs of late and was moved on to the very underrated trainer Kevin Frost and he defied very long odds to be a close 3rd at Newcastle , and will relish this slightly longer trip .
1/4pt win Siam Fox @ 5/1
3.05 Despite a further small nudge up the ratings , the bang in form front running Fly The Nest comes here on the back of two big runs over C&D and hard seeing what can prevent another win today .
1/2pt win Fly The Nest @ 7/2
3.40 Christine’s Angel comes here on the back of a good 2nd over C&D and despite a small rise in the ratings , holds clear longshot claims in a winnable heat . Recent shock C&D winner Measured Moments would do very well doubling up with the 6 pound hit .
1/4pt ew Christine’s Angel @ 12/1
4.40 Embla is 0 from 17 , but has gone close a number of times , Comes here in good form , very well drawn and on the surface .
1/4pt win Embla @ 10/3
Selected Donny – good ground on this flat and galloping track
12.30 In a weak novice event , a clear opportunity for Tommy Cullen to open his account.
1/2pt win Tommy Cullen @ 4/5
2.15 Brief Times doesn’t know how to run a bad one and impressed last time , tackling this trip for the first time over fences and the 5 pound hit could have been much worse. Not a very deep heat .
1/2pt win Brief Times @ 5/2
Selected Cheltenham – good ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
2.25 PREMIUM RACE
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
3.35 PREMIUM RACE
No Cheltenham Placepot
Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta
4.15 With recent winners Coast and Tathmeen penalised , he consistent dual course winner Bernard Spierpoint is likely to be bang there again and the return to this trip in his favour .
1/4pt ew Bernard Spierpoint @ 6/1
5.15 Josies Kid has dropped appreciably in the ratings and has shown of late some promising signs and the drop in grade can only help .
1/4pt ew Josies Kid @ 11/1
5.45 There are 4 recent winners at this trip and surface and all have been penalised but three of them are prominent in the mark but Amourie is doubler figures . It would be a fitting success as she unluckily lost her race in The Stewards Room .
1/4pt ew Amourie @ 12/1
6.45 Al Baahy is rarely far away and comes here on the back of a close 2nd at Newcastle and stays on the same mark . Extra furlong unlikely to be an issue but this is not jockey Jason Hart ‘s favourite track .
1/4pt ew Al Baahy @ 8/1
7.15 PREMIUM RACE
7.45 The ultra consistent Mumcat has been banging on the door good style of late and last time out it looked as if it had finally opened , but was chinned by an unexposed one . Stays on the same mark and drops in grade . This should be her night with Jo Mason keeping the ride .
1/2pt win Mumcat @ 3/1
8.15 The prominent racing Autumn Angel was just touched off last time at Wolver . Up a pound , but looking at racing styles of the opposition , could well have an easy time up front .
1/4pt win Autumn Angel @ 10/3
Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
6.30 Lion Ring has run well of late over C&D and around this mark and can be rewarded with a win from the best of the draw.
1/4pt win Lion Ring @ 9/2
7.30 Dream Today is a useful handicap sprinter and runs this C&D very well. Last time out he was a good 2nd behind Rough Diamond , but has a big pull in the weights and looks a cracking ew bet off a reduced mark .
1/2pt ew Dream Today @ 8/1
8.00 Samrogue looked like a filly to follow after two very smart wins . She flopped over C&D last time , but the saddle slipped from early on , so we can give her the benefit of the doubt about that . She’s a dual track winner and has improved since going up in trip .
1/4pt win Samrogue @ 9/2
