Blackcurrent a tasty bet in the 8.30

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Bomb Squad 4.55 @ 9/2

My Boy Jack 5.30 @ 4/1

Blackcurrent 8.30 @ 3/1

Selected Southwell – good ground on this flat and sharp track


1.50 The prominent racing Ardmayle has been a bit in and out of late but notched his 2nd win over C&D last time out , but had only 2 lengths to spare over the well handicapped Mr Coldstone , and with a 4 pound pull , this late player is preferred .

1/4pt win Mr Coldstone @ 11/2

4.10 Doors Breaker comes here on the back of a surprise win in a big field at Donny on good ground , but it was a race more about quantity than quality and the 4 pound hit could keep him quiet . Laura Morgan continues to have plenty of winners and saddles the lightly raced youngster Charging Point who returning from a break , was a good 3rd over C&D in his first handicap and this late player is preferred to the luckless Marjaman , 3 successive seconds , but looking very one paced late on .

1/4pt win  Charging Point @ 7/2

Selected Wetherby – probably good ground on this flat and gallioping track

2.05 The drop in trip is the issue for both the in form pair of Chris Cool and Beat The Edge , while the very hard to win with Caboy , who is arguably the form horse in the race , won’t find drying ground ideal . The consistent Fever Roque will find the ground in his favour and is certainly capable of a win off this mark around this kind of C&D .

1/2pt win Fever Roque @ 6/1

3.15 Gwencily Berbas is 2 from 2 in Marathons , but both were achieved at Exeter , a very different track from today . The consistent Your Own Story remains on a workable mark , the ground is Ok and shapes very much as if marathon trips would suit .

1/2pt win Your Own Story @ 2/1


5.00 A weak finale and despite a cruel 5 pound hke for finishing only 2nd , the front running Glory Bridge ticks plenty of boxes and will be hard to beat , but I can afford to pass at evens .

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

4.55 Astrophysics goes for the course hat-trick , but up a nasty 4 pounds and in trip , and was behind the inform Bomb Squad over C&D a few starts back , and reopposes on 3 pound worse terms. Bomb Squad has since been a nose 2nd here , when upped in trip and off just a pound higher is preferred .

1/2pt win Bomb Squad @ 9/2

5.30 Eye of The Water finally made an overdue return to the Winners’ Circle with a victory here , but over a longer trip , an issue shared by the lightly raced Boarhunt . My Boy Jack finally broke his duck , at the 22nd attempt , winning well over C&D , and a 2 pound hit for beating a reliable yardstick , racing from a good draw and ridden by an able 7 pound claimer , all points to another big run .

1/2pt win My Boy Jack @ 4/1

6.00 Most of these are going up in trip , and none of them guaranteed to benefit from the extra yardage . The prominent racing Wreck It Ryley had a distant view of a couple looking ahead of the game when 3rd here last time , but this prominent racer ran well enough in a maiden at this trip , to be a factor off this mark .

1/4pt win Wreck It Ryley @ 4/1

6.30 Cruella De Vill runs for a top stable in famous colours , but has yet to set the track alight and from the worst of the draw and returning from a 3 months absence is passed over . Both Class Member and My Turn Now ran well over C&D last time and the nod to the former with slightly stronger form .

1/4pt win Class Member @ 2/1

7.00 These are mostly returning from a break , racing on stiff enough marks or not running well so worth a dabble on recent 2nd Protective Guest , who has won on this surface.

1/4pt  ew Protected Guest @ 22/1


8.00 A deserved win can come the way of the consistent Under The Twilight who recently returned from a 4 months break with a creditable 2 lengths 6th over C&D in higher grade , and has gone close over C&D off higher marks .

1/2pt win Under The Twilight @ 11/4

8.30 Both Blackcurrent and Rockley Point are very reliable , if modest , and likely to fight this one out , but from a better draw and likely to have the run of the race from the front , the in form tip gets the nod .

1/2pt win Blackcurrent @ 3/1
