Landrake 2.55 @ 7/4
Must Be Obeyed 3.55 @ 7/1
Selected Taunton – probably good to soft on this flat and sharp track
1.40 In a modest heat , hard looking past 4/7 shot Ioupy Collonges .
2.10 Looks a match between the two winners in the field but preference for useful flat horse Dancila , 1 from 1 over hurdles , as his chief rival Out Of Office could find things happening a bit quickly around this C&D , and the stable is struggling badly.
1/2pt win Dancila @ 6/4
2.45 PREMIUM RACE
3.15 PREMIUM RACE
3.45 PREMIUM Race
4.15 As the drop in trip is against Kym Eyre and as recent Market Rasen scorer has a stiff 5 pound penalty to overcome , and goes up in trip , a chance for the luckless Auditoria , 2nd in her last two races , trying every inch , and no issues with trip, mark or ground ,
1/4pt win Auditoria @ 5/1
Selected Navan – very soft ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
1.50 This looks likely to be fought out by the two form horses but the ground may be more in the favour of Fameaftertheglory , who’s showed much improved form since being dropped to this trip and gets the nod over the capable Thecompanysergeant .
1/4pt win Fameaftertheglory @ 7/4
2.20 Not a deep race as the admirable Little MixUp , 3 wins from the last 4 is up a telling 9 pounds . unlikely to be able to counter that. Youngster By Your Side was most unlucky at Naas last time when looking the winner only to make a right hash of the final flight , and couldn’t recover . With better luck , can overcome the 2 pound nudge . The fav is the progressive youngster Carbon King , but he’s a massive 16 pounds higher than his last win which came over half a mile further.
1/4pt win By Your Side @ 7/2
2.55 Some useful novices in this but the prolific Landrake brings the best form to the table and will handle the ground and this stiff C&D ,
1/2pt win Landrake @ 7/4
3.25 The very wonderful Any Second Now continues his build up for another crack at the Aintree National, and after a wonderful 3rd 2 years ago ,m was a magnificent 2nd , close behind Noble Yeats , and since then the winner has progressed into a very useful Graded Chaser . Today’s race is merely a warm up , but is entitled to win , despite the trip being very short for him .
3.55 This looks wide open but happy to play the useful mare Must Be Obeyed , no problems with trip or ground and on a fair yet lofty mark in her handicap debut and significant that after landing a double in novice chasers , the 2nd time , carrying the penalty very well for an easy win , was stepped up in class into a Grade 2 novice chase , and was far from disgraced .
1/4pt win Must Be Obeyed @ 7/1
Selected Southwell – probably good to soft on this flat and sharp track
2.00 Not a deep race and it’s all about whether the hat-trick chasing Ali Star Bert can overcome the hefty 9 pound penalty , switching to a speed track, but saying that he could take advantage ?
2.35 Coastguard Station comes here on the back of two very big runs at Donny , so this C&D should suit well , and will be hard to beat , but not for me at evens .
3.35 White Rhino is 2 from 2 I handicaps , one coming over C&D, but races today off a massive 15 pounds higher mark in this deeper race , and if landing the hat-trick , is certainly one to stick with , but I have my doubts. The admirably consistent Leading Theatre has been closely watched by the handicapper , who keeps nudging this reliable mare up the ratings , but as she doesn’t know how to run a bad race , nice ew play.
1/4pt ew Leading Theatre @ 12/1
