Selected Haydock – soft ground on this flat and galloping track

12.40 PREMIUM RACE

1.15 Definite signs that Albert’s Back is back after a close 2nd in the Wetherby mud and despite a nudge up the ratings , this late player will relish the longer trip .

1/4pt win Albert’s Back @ 11/2

1.50 No point in opposing the comfortably highest rated in the field Hitman .

2.25 A wide open and quality Class 1 stayers’ hurdle and I’m with two longshots who are both in form , on workable marks and no issues with trip or ground .

1/4pt ew each Wholestone @ 25/1  Get A Tonic @ 12/1  – why not a small rev fc

3.00 No point opposing the best 3 mile chaser around , A Plus Tard , who won this with ease last year .

12.48 The useful Wynn House should certainly have the legs of main rival Panic Attack over this speedy C&D .

3/4pt win  Wynn House @ evens

1.58 Rhebus Gold was a clear winner over C&D last season on good ground and subsequent efforts show he’s on a workable mark .

1.30 The reliable mare Glimpse Of Gala comes here in her usual good form and up against rivals all with something to prove .

1/4pt win Glimpse Of Gala @ 9/4

2.05 Drying ground may well not make L’Homme Presse the good thing he looks , especially with the fast ground loving Saint Calvados in the field .

Selected Punchestown – good to soft on this undulating and galloping track

A very special hello to a great friend of mine, Chris, and party, who have crossed the Irish Sea in search of wine, women and winners and have wisely asked The Racehorsetipster for guidance .

12.30 As Journey With Me holds a decision over Kilcruit , should again outstay him .

1/2pt win Journey With Me @ 4/5

1.03 The luckless Midnight Run is the highest rated and should have the edge over Galway specialist Hallowed Star on this more benign track .

1/4pt win Midnight Run @  2/1

1.38 Absolute Notions and Benaud have clear claims but worth a try on point winner Deep Cave , who changed hands recently for £235,000 !

1/4pt win Deep Cave @ 4/1

2.13 As both Heaven Help Us and Queens Brook ran way below form last time , worth a dabble on  the front running Rebel early for the upset .

1/4pt  ew Rebel Early @ 12/1

2,48 The prolific The Model Kingdom is proven in this grade which gives him the nod over Halibut .

1/2pt win The Model Kingdom @ 13/8

3.23 The hat-trick seeking Jungle pose would do very well to go in again with a stiff 12 pound penalty . Youngster Dr Val has run well in both handicaps  and was a good 2nd at around this trip last time , and a 2 pound nudge keeps him in the picture .

1/2pt  ew Dr Val @ 8/1

3.55 Could be worth a try on point winner Jack Burke who has changed stables and has a very positive jockey booking .

1/4pt win Jack Burke @ 9/1

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

4.30 I’ve been with Iconique quite frequently of late , and continues to run well, but the breaks  don’t come her way . On a good mark and trip no problem but  has a rare try on tapeta , but considering that this isn’t a big ask , worth the risk .

1/4pt win Iconique @ 13/2

5.00 The backers have returned for Abbey Heights , very well supported last time at Southwell but could only manage a 2 lengths 4th , in lower grade , so from a poor draw, looks like one to take on . Mighty Gurkha has dropped to a good mark and did well last time when 3rd at Chelmsford City , over a trip too far . He’s run well here before and is very well drawn to attempt an all the way win .

1/2pt ew Mighty Gurkha @ 10/1

5.30 After a good run ast Southwell, Millbanke backed that up with a fine effort over C&D when a close 2nd, but did have the run of the race from the front , which is unlikely to happen tonight with other front runners in the field , and he’s also recently switched stables to a yard with a poor record with new intakes . Poetic Force had a successful time of things on turf this season and came from a long way back over C&D last time to be a close 3rd . With a strong gallop in his favour , looks a lively longshot .

1/2pt ew Poetic Force @ 12/1

6.00 A low grade nursery and not a deep one at that . Attrazione did well at Newcastle , coming from way off the pace to be a close 3rd . Up 2 pounds and tries a more benign track , but well drawn and should be good enough .

1/4pt win Attrazione @ 5/2

6.30 This is so winnable with Box to Box down in trip , hat-trick seeking The Menstone Gem penalised for winning from the front when granted a soft lead , which won’t happen tonight , Mercurius Power up in trip and the ratings and has been sold on to a small stable while track specialist Precision Storm has a poor record returning after a break . The consistent Daheer is a 5 time C&d winner , remains on a workable mark, and when last seen , was running well. That was 5 months ago , but has a good record running fresh .

1/2pt  ew  Daheer @ 12/1

7.30 The Godolphin newcomer Isle Of Jura is poorly drawn while Bohemian Breeze flattened out at Chelmsford City last time . Zodiac Star has run well In both outings , the most recent a close 4th over C&D .

1/4pt win Zodiac Star @ 9/2

8,00 Hooflepuff bounced back to form with no warning whatsoever when scoring for the 7th time here last time , but the drop in trip won’t help and neither will the 2 pound hit . Eagle Eyed Freddie comes here in good shape when just getting outstayed at Chelmsford City  over further and the switch to this C&D no issue for this well drawn prominent racer . Lockdown Lass, is like most late players , hard to win with , but is rarely far away and off a workable mark , this could be her night in a race where few count .

1/4pt ew Lockdown Lass @ 7/1

8.30 Eye Of The water is not as good as he was , but is getting plenty of help from the handicapper and was a close 4th over C&D last time , when trying to make all , and in the end beaten just a length . A pound lower today and has a first ever run in a 0-60 .

1/4pt win Eye Of The water @ 9/2
