Jewel set to sparkle in the 3.25

Today’s Trixie

50p ew trixie & 50p ew treble

Jewel In My Crown 3.25 @ 10/1

Internationalangel 4.00 @ 7/2

Hidden Pearl 6.30 @ 8/1

Selected Worcester – soft ground on this flat and galloping track.

1.20 Most of these are trying fences for the first time , which should certainly suit the ex-pointer Walk In Clover , a winner at this trip and on soft ground over hurdles and on a very workable looking mark . An uncompetitive race .

3/4pt win Walk In Clover @ 9/4

1.55 Hard to fancy many and a decent chance of Gloire d’Athon doubling up , an easy winner on his chase debut at Huntingdon , fine on soft ground , goes well fresh and the 6 pound hit could have been a lot worse .

1/2pt win Gloire d’Athon @ 4/1

Selected Stratford – probably good ground on this flat and sharp track

3.15 The useful hurdler Midnight River ran well off this mark over a trip too far in a Class 2 handicap chase in the Uttoxeter mud , and while today’s ground could be on the quick side , he’s up against a couple of prolific in form types in Kauto The King and Pencreek, who are both now on stiff marks , and the rest are hard to fancy for various reasons .

1/4pt win Midnight River @ 11/4

3.50 Not a deep looking novice hurdle and debut bumper winner Gitchee Gumee did it very well and is preferred to Swapped , whose best form came on polytrack .

1/2pt win Gitchee Gumee @5/2

4.25 The return to this longer trip is very much in the favour of the consistent Bebraveforglory , who goes well fresh and is certainly on a workable mark .

1/2pt win Bebraveforglory @ 4/1

5.00 In an uncompetitive finale, looks good for the  C&D double for Samatian , just 3 pounds higher and the wind op made all the difference to his fortunes .

3/4pt win Samatian @ 9/4

Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack

1.40 Plenty of consistent ones but some are switching from tapeta, some are up in trip and some now on stiff marks . Worth a try on the well drawn  front running My Bonnie Lassie, who has run two big races on this surface and mark , and despite dropping in trip , could have these on the stretch and won’t be stopping . An able jockey takes the reins in this apprentice handicap .

1/2pt ew My Bonnie Lassie @ 16/1

3,25 The first of two valuable Listed events for fillies and this one has a very winnable look to it and well worth a try on the prolific Jewel In My Crown , who comes here on a hat-trick and every chance of success at the ratings . She is 1 from 1 on polytrack and optimism in the pedigree for this , the longest trip she’s ever tried .

1/2pt  ew  Jewel In My Crown @ 10/1

4.00 It was only in the Summer of last year that Internationalangel landed her first win , off a lowly mark of 59 and then went on land a 6 timer on being moved to Jane Chapple-Hyam , and her highest winning mark is now a useful 92 , but she has surpassed that frequently of late running some big races on turf , the latest a close 4th in a Group 2 . It’s a little disconcerting that she came into her last race on polytrack 4 from 5 on the surface , but ran a stinker . Just hope that she’s suddenly taken a dislike for today’s surface .

1/2pt win  Internationalangel @ 7/2

4.35 The evergreen Documenting shows no signs of slowing and well worth his lofty mark of 99 , and in the last 2 years he’s been a winner and a 2nd in this off much higher marks. This is not a huge ask .

1/2pt win Documenting @ 9/2

Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack

I’ve landed the placepots at the last 2 Thursday night meetings here , both times massive payouts , £700+ & £900 +

May be worth trying my placepot picks

6.00 Healing Power did very well here last time when dropped to this trip and had a wide draw, but stuck to his guns admirably  , only finding Epic Express too good, but will surely gain revenge on that one with a 5 pound pull in the weights and also his rival has the worst of the draw.  Vape is another well drawn prominent racer who can be relied upon to run his race and again won’t be far away . The lightly raced Our Absent Friends absolutely  hosed in on his recent handicap debut at Newcastle . The 5 pound hit looks manageable but maybe not tonight up in trip and switching to polytrack.

1/4pt  ew  Healing Power @ 8/1

6.30 when Bird Of Life wins , you can afford to lose , and her latest win came 17 months after her previous , but the 3 pound hit is far less of a hindrance than the drop in trip and the switch to this track , just 1 place in 6 tries . Hammy end is another with a rotten win record , just 2 from 41, but is at least consistent and won’t be far away , but again unlikely to prevail . Hidden Pearl is certainly the form horse and easily the most consistent , a win and 4 seconds in her last 6 . she remains on a workable mark and no issue with C&D . Long odds for her chance .

1/2pt  ew  Hidden Pearl @ 8/1


7.30 The well drawn Tara is certainly knocking on the door , and no issue with the C&D. she is likely to try and make all , but there is plenty of early in opposition , but still hard seeing her being far away .

1/2pt  ew  Tara @ 13/2

8.00 Sir Rodneyredblood is a most  reliable all weather sprinter , a smart winner over C&D , when as usual making all but not so well drawn tonight and has a stiff 6 pound penalty, so effectively 13 higher as he was partnered by a very able 7 pound claimer last time . He’ll be front rank but unlikely to stay there. Charming Kid has plummeted in the ratings and went close off this mark last time an too did the late playing Dream Game another who’s been given a good chance by the handicapper . Angie Land has a first ever run in Class 6 and is another who’s in with a clear chance in a tough heat to call.

1/4pt win Charming Kid @ 11/4
