Maysong 3.35 @ 5/1
Metahorse 5.20 @ 13/2
Riversway 2.35 @ 8/1
Selected Haydock – good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.35 Plenty of in form types , who are all now feeling the wrath of the handicapper , and plenty of early pace around too. Riversway , a bit like her stable , has been in and out this season , but three runs back , came smoothly off the pace to win comfortable over C&D and just 2 pounds higher today . Worth a risk that she can put subsequent lesser efforts behind her .
1/2pt win Riversway @ 8/1
3.45 PREMIUM RACE
4.20 The lightly raced Alseeyerthere won comfortable at Redcar and backed that up with a close 3rd off this mark , just behind the prolific Kimnkate . She disappointed next time when fancied in a big field Donny handicap , but if back to form , can get the better of recent easy winner Red Maids , 6 pounds higher for landing a win in lower grade and Fools And Horses , who could need a stiffer track .
1/4pt win Alseeyerthere @5/1
4.55 This will take little winning and as she’s been running consistently well and proven at the trip off around this mark , the tip gets the call.
¼ pt ew Cab Can Girl @ 6/1
Selected Ascot – good ground on this stiff and galloping track
1.50 A handful of these bring very decent form to the table but I’m willing to forgive Cajetan’s flop last time as it came on the tricky track of Lingfield from as bad draw and previously ran a good 2nd at Salisbury , just about the best form on show, and this C&D should suit fine .
1/4pt win Cajetan@ 4/1
2.25 There are some well bred and expensive newcomers in the field , including Aiden O’Brien’s Kestrel , but there’s no substitute for experience and Olympic Candle gets the call.
1/4pt win Olympic Candle @ 11/4
3.35 Plenty of in form types but plenty of them now on testing marks. Maysong has held his form well of late , in better contests than this , and another good run expected with this C&D likely to suit .
1/2pt win Maysong @ 5/1
4.45 A change of tactics almost did the trick for the classy handicapper Major Partnership , who sat off the pace for once , and only narrowly failed over C&D . Up another pound , which doesn’t help, but still preferred. Aerion Power continues to come on to the scene far too late .
1/4pt win Major Partnership @ 7/2
5.20 The prominent racing Metahorse comes into this on the back of three good runs , the latest a narrow defeat at Beverley , so this C&D should be fine . There is plenty of early pace on , but doesn’t need to lead to run well .
1/2pt ew Metahorse @ 13/2
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta, the track is stiff and galloping
2.45 The admirably prolific Barrolo , 4 wins and a 2nd this season has a bit to prove up in the ratings and trying tapeta while this stiff C&D may well not suit another form horse in Fleur De Mer . There isn’t much early pace in this contest which should favour those racing neat the front . The consistent C&D winner Western Beat can race prominently and remains on a workable mark and should again run her race. If there was a strong pace , the late playing dual course winner Danielsflier would be very likely to out run his long odds .
1/4pt ew each . Western Beat @ 15/2, Danielsflyer @ 40/1 . Why not , a small rev fc

Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
7.30 Beccara Rose is rarely far away and handles the C&D well , that could give her the nod .
1/4pt win Beccara Rose @ 10/3
9.00 As the vast majority of these are going up markedly in trip , best staying with one proven at the distance . Sophar Sogood comes here on the back of a very big run over C&D last time in a far better race , and the 2 pound penalty shouldn’t prevent another good run.
