Selected Carlisle – good to soft on this undulating, stiff and galloping track
1.15 The short priced fav is former decent flat stayer Whitehaven , who was at his very best on deep ground . His hurdles debut was a decent effort , but he hasn’t won for a while and didn’t look the most resolute . I prefer a play on the former useful flat horse Ebendi , who has joined quite a small stable , but has a good record here and ran pretty well over C&D last time on similar ground . Not a deep race .
1/4pt ew Ebendi @ 12/1
2.45 City Derby has certainly been given a chance by the handicapper and comes here on the back of a decent effort over C&D on similar ground , in a race which won’t take much winning .

3.15 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Lingfield – good to soft on this undulating and sharp track .
1.30 The form horse is the luckless Uncle Bert, 3 races , 3 seconds ! , which does activate warning bells and drying ground may well not be in his favour . Preference is for the consistent Hourvari , who gave the impression here last time , that this longer trip would be to his advantage .
1/4pt win Hourvari @ 7/2
2.00 PREMIUM RACE
2.30 The penalty and this easier track may well count against recent Exeter winner Lazy Sunday , and in a race which won’t take much winning, I’m with the reliable Lincoln Lyn , 2 wins and 2 places from 4 tries this season , and this late player has taken well to fences . She backed up a good win at Fakenham with a close 3rd at Wetherby , and the likely strong pace should set this up nicely .
1/2pt win Lincoln Lyn @ 5/1
4.10 This has a winnable look to it and well worth a try on handicap newcomer Often Overlooked , who’s with a top stable and has showed sufficient in some decent novice hurdles to be a factor off a workable looking mark .

4.45 Another race which won’t take much winning and worth trying the reliable Supasunrise going up in trip , which should suit and remains on a fair mark .
1/2pt win Supasunrise @ 4/1
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping .
5.00 The admirable Buxted Too goes for the 4 timer , but of course the handicapper is making it tougher . He was successful over C&D two starts back beating the consistent Jubilee Girl by a length , but as the runner up is 5 pounds better off , get the verdict
1/2pt win Jubilee Girl @ 11/4
5.30 There wasn’t much between the luckless King’s Gem and the admirably consistent Evolicatt at Southwell at this trip, but the latter is now 4 pounds better off and could well get the run of the race up front . Certainly worth a play with the hungry Oisin Murphy in the saddle .
1/2pt ew Evolicatt @3/1
6.00 Level Up comes here on the back of two big runs at Southwell , but his mark is now stiff enough . Yaahobby is rarely far away , remains on a workable mark and this late player runs this C&D well . Wide draw should ensure little traffic problems .

7.30 Most of these are having problems this their noses in front and the exception , Martin’s Brig , is now on too stiff a mark and the mile stretches his stamina . Pallas Lord is rarely far away and gets the vote having a rare pop in Class 6 .
1/2pt win Pallas Lord @ 11/2
