12.20 Reeceltic came into his latest race in unusually poor form , but as it was a modest heat , and racing off a low mark , won with ease , but up to a grade today in which he is 0 from 5 and also has a stiff 5 pound penalty , so easy to look elsewhere . Russian Rumour can be relied upon to run her race , and the return to this trip is in her favour , but is 0 places from 4 tries on polytrack , but has run some fair races on this surface. Militry Decoration can be relied upon to run his race and comes here on the back of big run at Kempton , first try at this trip , when unlucky in the run and only beaten a length , and stays on the same mark . Has run well here before and in a race for apprentices, has one of the more experienced riders aboard .

12.50 The consistent Justcallmepete is on a long losing run and the drop in trip unlikely to alter fortunes . Lilkian is rarely far away but preference at long odds for the well handicapped Show Me A Sunset , who’s run some good races of late off slightly higher marks and the return to a longer trip no issue .

1.55 The front running Ruith Le Tu bounced back to form with a close 2nd over C&D with the consistent , if hard to win with Mcqueen just a nose behind , but placings should be confirmed as the tip is better drawn and also likely to have a relatively easy time of things at the head of proceedings .
3/4pt win Ruith Le Tu @ 9/4
2.55 The short priced fav Pistoletto makes little appeal despite the drop in grade and the ratings and this should concern the front running youngster Capital Theory and the consistent Snapcracklepop , but the tip gets the nod as he’s likely to have it his way from the front .
1/4pt win Capital Theory @ 7/2
3.25 Many of these would be happier either going a bit further or shorter , and the vast majority of the field are on long losing runs . Asdaa has dropped to a tempting mark and was running on pleasingly at Kempton last time , in only his 2nd try at this trip . Down a few more pounds and this won’t take much winning .

2.15 Ghumana has been acquitting herself well in handicaps around here and as she is the one to beat at the weights and comers here in good enough form , this weak event should be hers.
¾pt win Ghumana @ 5/2
2.45 You could have thrown a blanket over the winner Coolcalmandcollected , and the placed horses in Not Too Real Bad , My Girl Sioux and Fast Trek over C&D recently and on revised terms , from 5 good draw and also as he’s less exposed than most, the latter gets the nod at long odds .

3.15 If you’re the type who like to play odds on shots, Kling Of Scotia is your bet of the day .
4.15 Question marks surround the fav , the maiden Ta Na La, up again in the ratings and down markedly in trip . Tynamite is rarely far away here and another good run likely at nice odds.

3.30 It wasn’t the greatest race ever which the lightly raced Wizarding landed over C&D , but it came in his first handicap and is much better drawn tonight, just a pound higher and the same jockey rides.
1/4pt win Wizarding @ 11/4
4.30 The short priced fav is the Godolphin youngster Postman’s Park , a respectable 4th over C&D on debut but at the odds , prefer a play on Lunatick , judged to have run to a similar level to the fav over C&D , nicely drawn and a lively longshot for sure.

5.00 The lightly raced Hadley Park has run very well in both nurseries since being stepped up to this trip , but the 4 pound hit for a close 2nd last time won’t help this short priced fav . Thunder Ball is rarely far away and ran very well over C&D last time in higher grade and kept on very well , Cracking ew play .

6.00 Hickory’s profile is not appealing , despite being 2 from 2 , and one of those was over C&D . He returned from an almost a 2 year absence to nail that win , and does go handicapping on a fair looking mark, but the acid test for long time absentees is 2nd run back , and they often “ Bounce “ , run way below form . The admirably consistent Granary Queen has been shoved up a nasty 3 pounds , which makes life much tougher , so despite being landed with the worst of the draw, course specialist Got No Dollars , showed up much better last time out when 4th over C&D, from a similar wide draw, and has dropped to a good mark . He’s building up fitness since his Summer break and this prolific sort will be adding to his tally , more sooner than later .
1/4pt ew Got No Dollars @ 8/1
6.30 There was little to separate Alcazan and Algheed at Wolver , but the 2 pound pull gives the tip the edge in a race where few count .
1/4pt win Algheed @ 4/1
