3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Don’t Tell Claire 4.52 @ 4/1
Ascot Adventure 7.42 Ayr @ 3/1
Hostelry 8.12 @ 7/2
Selected Beverley – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
2.00 The very short priced fav is the William Haggas trained Rare Jewel who showed very little on debut , and even in this small field , the wide draw won’t help . Both of the winners in the field in C&D winner Keldeo and Ponty winner Princess Alex could struggle under their penalties and on quick ground . Not really surprising that Go Big Or Go Home cost a whopping £1.8 million as she’s a half sister to one of the greatest sprinters ever in Battaash and to another useful one in The Antarctic , and the dame was only rated 41 ! This breeding lark sometimes is hard to follow !. The Bryan Smart stable is well capable of readying them first time and whatever her fate today , has go in your tracker.
1/2pt win Go Big Or Go Home @ 11/2
3.30 PREMIUM RACE
4.00 The late playing Cold Henry is now on a stiff looking mark but should get away with it against modest opposition and will be eating up the ground late on up the unforgiving finish .
1/2pt win Cold Henry @ 5/2
4.30 The 4 timer chasing Temper Trap has no penalty but the quick ground is bang against him . Kodebreaker is rarely far away and another good run likely .
1/4pt ew Kodebreaker @ 8/1
No Beverley placepot picks
Selected Salisbury – good to firm on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
2.40 Not a deep looking maiden and nothing wrong with the chance of Falling For You , a running on 4th on debut at Windsor and bred to appreciate the extra furlong .
1/4pt win Falling For You @ 7/2
4.10 A valuable Class 1 and Mighty Ulysses has it to prove after a lukewarm recent comeback spin while Regal Reality carries a penalty and the top stable is unusually struggling for winners . Chichester is one of the most improved milers around and has a good chance on official ratings and could improve further now in the care of Charlie Johnson . Embesto is hard to knock with 2 wins and a close 2nd in a Listed race in his three runs and looks dangerous .
1/4pt win Chichester @ 15/2
No Salisbury placepot picks
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
2.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.50 Understandable that Pressures On is a warm order in this nursery as he’s on a good mark on his handicap debut and comes here on the back of a short head defeat , coming strongly off the pace in a decent looking maiden over C&D , but at 5/4 , I can pass.
4.52 Don’t Tell Claire is a useful handicapper and was an excellent 2nd of 19 at Royal Ascot off around this mark and is a winner on the surface . Not a deep looking race .
1/2pt win Don’t Tell Claire @4/1
5.22 The hat-trick chasing Bo Taifan has it to prove switching to tapeta and up a sharp 6 pounds . It;’s hard knocking the consistent All Dunn , who is creeping up the ratings , but was only beaten a short head off a 2 pound lower mark over C&D , form good enough to land this modest finale .
1/4pt win All Dunn @ 5/2
Selected Windsor – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
Another feast of competitive of racing . All valuable handicaps
5.00 The likes of Chinese Knot and Loaded Gun have it to prove away from soft ground conditions . Not a deep race and the nod goes to Pink Satin , successful on debut which came on similar ground over C&D and outclassed next time . On a fair mark .
1/4pt win Pink Satin @ 3/1
5,30 The prominent racing Antiphon is rarely far away and has a good record over C&D and on quick turf . He remains on a winning mark and despite a wider draw than ideal , looks a lively longshot considering the ground will be plenty quick enough for most of his rivals.
1/4pt ew Antiphon @ 12/1
6.00 The lightly raced hat-trick seeking Crimson Angel has her first race on turf , but still has to be respected off what looks a workable opening mark , but does return from a 5 months break . Libra Tiger won well last time but it was on soft ground at the stiff Sandown and off a 5 pound lower mark . Another Baar has missed the frame just once in 9 runs this season , and had excuses for that below par run . Likely to be front rank throughout and keeps on very well.
1/2pt ew Another Baar @ 9/1
6.30 PREMIUM RACE
7.00 The late playing Metabolt came into his last race on the back of 2 wins and a good 2nd and was the fav for a big handicap at Galway , but struggled on the ground and that tough track . Expect a late charge in a race full of early pace .
1/2pt win Metabolt @ 6/1
8.00 Certain Lad is getting closer with the ease in the ratings and off a 2 pound lower mark than last time , makes longshot appeal in a very open finale .
1/4pt ew Certain Lad @ 12/1
Selected Ayr – good ground on this flat and galloping track
6.12 PREMIUM RACE
7.12 The front running Vortigan has gone close the last twice off around this mark and last time over C&D on ground soft enough . Would have been happier without the first time visor , a negative for the stable .
1/4pt win Vortigan @ 4/1
7.42 Judgement Call did very well to win clearly at Musselburgh last time , and is just as effective over this C&D . He managed to lead a race full of early pace , and may well have difficulty controlling this with the front running Barging Thru drawn inside , and is a nasty 5 pounds higher . The luckless Ascot Adventure has been close up frequently of late and this could be his night . The admirably consistent Novak goes for the 4 timer but is up 3 pounds in deeper company , been off for 2 months and arguably one furlong less suits .
1/2pt win Ascot Adventure @ 3/1
8.12 JKR Cobbler comes here on a course 4 timer but goes up in trip and is a stiff 5 pounds higher in tougher company . Hostelry deserves more than just the 2 career successes and was a close 2nd last time off this mark, trip and ground . The ground won’t help Fifty Sent dropping in trip while recent C&D winner Retirement Beckons , is a law to himself and hard to fancy with a 4 pound penalty .
1/2pt win Hostelry @ 7/2
