Selected Ripon – good to soft on this undulating  and sharp track


3.15 The valuable Great St Wilfred Handicap and in all big field sprints on a straight track , identify where the early pace will come and historically , you can win high or low in this and there is early pace on both flanks in this , suggesting the draw won’t be an issue . At a price I’m taken by C&d winner It Just Takes Time , who will have the ground in his favour and his high draw fine as he’s likely to stalk the early , remains on a workable mark and soft ground a help .

Selected Newbury – good to soft on this flat and galloping track

2.25 May Sonic is a useful all weather horse and no slouch on turf either and comes here on the back of a big run in a small Windsor field , but the form is good . Ground no issue and has longshot appeal.

1/2pt  ew May Sonic @ 14/1

4.40 This has a winnable look to it and as youngster Scintillate looked unlucky last time off this mark in as better race , gets the call.

1/4pt win  Scintillate @ 4/1

5.15 After a smart win over C&D in a maiden , running to a level on a par with today’s handicap mark. Tony Manero struggled next time on very deep ground when upped in trip. Nice odds in a winnable heat .

1/2pt win Tony Manero @ 9/1

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

2.05 One of my favourite races of the year , the greys handicap sprint , and what a spectacle watching 15 greys , of various shades , galloping for all their worth . There are only two front runners in Mister Bluebird , who stays further and could be dangerous if given too much rope and the no hoper Gunmetal  Celtic Champion remains unexposed , is well drawn , and gives the impression he’s capable of more .

1/2pt win Celtic Champion @ 11/2

3.45 Single runs this C&D very well and in the last two seasons has won and been 2nd in this race , off around this mark . Another good run expected .

Selected Perth – good ground on this flat and sharp track

3.20 The prolific Finisk River could well pinch this from the front . He’s down to a good mark and as he stays further , is a dangerous type to leave up front .

1/2pt win Finisk River @ 7/1

4.30 Castletown notched a rare but fine win over C&D last time and was narrowly denied off this mark next time and will appreciate this trip far more than the back to form Judge Earle .

3/4pt win Castletown @ 9/2

5.00 Born Famous put in an incredible performance when winning the valuable Summer Plate over C&D last time , giving the field a big start and came home for a comfy win  . Just 4 pounds higher , but very different ground today . The front running Darkest Day has some good form over C&D off around this mark and appeals as a longshot .

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

3.05 Not a deep race and the C&d winner Shimmering Sands remains on a workable mark .

1/4pt win Shimmering Sands @ 4/1

4.15 Bedford Flyer is very well handicapped and gets the nod in a competitive heat .

1/4pt  ew Bedford Flyer @ 15/2


5.25 The front running Al Baahy could get his own way up front in a race lacking  in early pace and remains on a competitive mark .

Selected Bath – good ground on this undulating , sharp but stiff track

5.02 The well drawn Sarah’s Verse comes here in fine form and runs this C&D very well . Can pick these up late on .

1/2pt win Sarah’s Verse @ 7/2

6.40 Worth a try on the longshot in Beau Roc who came off the pace over C&D to win comfortably a few races back , only 3 pounds higher and drying ground in her favour .

1/4pt win Beau Roc @ 11/1

7.10 The prominent racing Dirham Emirati goes for the track hat-trick , which looks on with just a 2 pound hit .

1/2pt win Dirham Emirati @ 13/8

7.40 Beggarman went down by a short head to Dirham Emerati last time and off just a pound higher can land a modest finale .

1/2pt win Beggarman @ 5/2

Selected Market Rasen – good ground on this mostly flat and sharp track

8.00 Dual C&D winner Misty  Mani has dropped to a good mark and hasn’t been running badly on ground too soft . Drying ground well in her favour .
