Batchelor Boy, out on his own

Selected Deauville – good ground on this flat and galloping track

As usual, some class racing in France today and  interested in one of those .

2.50 English raider Aristia, holds her form very well , and what good form it is, and was an excellent 2nd at Glorious Goodwood and had some very reliable and classy fillies behind . Well drawn to take these along , and she will be more suited to the drying ground than the majority of these fillies . Cracking ew play .

Selected Brighton – good to firm on this undulating, sharp and very tricky track

2.45 Batchelor Boy has won his last 3 races at this specialist circuit and this late player comes here on the back of another big run , over C&D when 3rd In a much better race . There is plenty of early pace in the race to suit his patient style and not hard seeing him bounding up the hill for another South Coast win .

3/4pt  win Batchelor Boy @ 10/3

3.50 Sly Madam has taken her form to a new level since switching to Salisbury , but a 3 pound nudge up the ratings won’t help for coming a good 2nd , and previously was a close 2nd over C&D , but off a 12 lower mark . Vitesse Du Son was an all the way winner over C&D in a modest heat , but did it well and backed hat up with a highly creditable 2nd at Yarmouth, off this 5 pound higher mark  , dropping in trip, behind a prolific filly . Chris Howarth keeps the ride and coast is clear for an all the way win .

Selected Yarmouth – good to firm on this flat and galloping track

3.36 The switch to front running saw Aletoile in a much better light last time , storming home over C&D by 8 lengths , and if having his own way up front again, which isn’t certain. Could make light if the 7 pound hit . Agent Of Fortune has run some good races over C&d of late and this late player will have an ideal strong pace to come off . Could nick this, if in the mood.

4.06 Giogiobbo comes here on the back of an all the way win at Donny , but a 5 pound hit and likely unwanted company up front from Goddess Of Fire , should set this up for the threatening MIstrix , denied narrowly over C&D last time out , and compensation awaits .

1/2pt  win MIstrix @ 13/8

Selected Naas – good ground on this undulating, stiff and galloping track

4.00 A number of these in Group  3 sprint , clashed recently over C&D when the progressive Pirate Jenny , made all, favoured by the low draw , and never looked like being caught. She’s well drawn again, but the jockey booking could have been far more positive, so just a dabble .

1/4pt  win Pirate Jenny @ 6/1


5.00 With the exception of the exposed handicapper Dancila, the whole field remain unexposed and not the finished article . Vega Magnifico was an easy and smooth winner at Navan , a similar C&D to today , giving them a start and a beating and was immediately stepped up into Group 3 company, which is presently a step too far, but wasn’t totally disgraced . Gets the call .

1/2pt  win Vega Magnifico @ 9/4

Selected Sandown – good ground on this stiff and galloping track


5.12 Clearly the two form horses are Andaleep and pledge of Honour, who both come here on a hat-trick and both are late players , both C&D winners . They of course are rising in the ratings, but looking at the opposition , the could again fight this out, as they did over C&d recently , with the tip coming out on top , and 3 pounds better off .

6.42 A wide open finale but as usual a good run from the ultra reliable Happy likely and from a good draw , and a useful 3 pound claimer riding , a deserved win could be on .
