Jenson Benson 8.30 @ 5/2
Villalobos 9.00 @ 9/2
Alder 2/40 @ 7/4
Selected Chester – soft ground on this flat and sharp track
1.30 We usually see King’s Lynn in Group or Class 1 events , and he’s been a beaten fav in this grade the last twice. He has a terrific record on soft ground and around here and with the soft ground , the wide draw is no issue . Not a deep race
1/2pt win King’s Lynn @ 3/1
2.05 The lightly raced Thetheoryofeverything sluiced in on his recent debut on soft ground and not disgraced when 3rd in Group company next time , also on soft . On a lofty but fair mark and another who should outclass his rivals .
1/2pt win Thertheoryofeverything @ 9/4
2.40 Irish raider was a good 3rd in a Group 2 last season on soft ground and impressed winning on her comeback spin . Should take advantage of the penalty carried by obvious danger Local Dynasty .
3/4pt win Alder @ 7/4
3.15 Changingtheguard very much had the run of the race when winning her from the front last season in the mud , but hasn’t been seen for 11 months , and an easy lead unlikely today . Hamish has the ground very much in his favour and won this well last season . He runs well fresh and taken to complete the double . Max Vega relishes soft ground and goes well fresh and likely to outrun his 10/1 odds .
1/4pt win Hamish @ 7/4
3.45 This is certainly more about quantity than quality and the consistent City Streak has a fine chance of upgrading some smart placed efforts of late .
1/4pt win City Streak @ 5/2
4.55 A very open finale as most of these in form types are either going up in trip or untried on soft ground . Demilion put in a good show in the Donny mud last time in a competitive heat and this prominent racer could well stay the longer trip.
1/4pt win Demilion @ 15/2
Selected Huntingdon – good ground on this flat and galloping track
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.00 Give Me A Cuddle ran very well last time when trying to make all at Kempton on good ground only tiring late on finishing an honourable 5th of 13 beaten just 3 lengths . Drop in trip certainly helps .
1/4pt ew Give Me A Cuddle @ 9/1
Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta
1.50 A good quality Class 4 handicap and the nod goes to C&d winner Odin Owns You All , running well off this mark last time . The short priced fav , the hat-trick seeking Yorkshire has a bit to prove up in trip .
1/4pt win Odin Owns You All @ 11/2
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
4.40 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Thirsk – soft ground on this flat and galloping track – speed track
7.10 Jamil has been holding his form well both on the flat and over hurdles . Soft ground fine and a very solid ew play in an uncompetitive heat .
1/2pt ew Jamil @ 15/2
7.40 The money was down on Indian Creek last time and he made no mistake with a clear win at Windsor in the mud , but the 5 pound hit looks hard to overcome, despite this looking uncompetitive . It Just Takes Two put together a terrific series last season , winning 4 times and 2nd 3 times in 7 straight races. His form tapered off at the end of a busy season but did well last time to be 3rd at Wetherby and the extra yardage well in his favour .
1/4pt win It Just Takes Two @ 10/3
8.45 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – tapeta
6.00 Hannah’s Return is just a pound higher than her win at this trip at Kempton . Very well drawn for a prominent racer and an able jockey aboard in a race for amateur riders.
1/4pt win Hannah’s Return
7.30 A true run race is likely with Rhubarb Bikini , now a bit high in the ratings , sure to try and make all. The hat-trick seeking Anificas Beauty has clear claims , even with a stiff penalty as does triple C&D winner Monaadhil but the nod goes to the consistent Triggered , still on a fair mark and effective on the surface and trip .
1/4pt win Triggered @ 5/1
8.30 Not a deep race and a fine chance for 4 time course winner Jenson Benson to add to his tally , coming here on the back of a close 3rd over C&D off this mark and in higher grade, Late player .
3/4pt win Jenson Benson @ 4/1
9.00 The front running Villalobos will welcome the return to Class 6 and against unconvincing rivals, could be hard to catch .
