3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Champagne City 6.00 @ 5/1

Justcallmepete 7.10 @ 11/4

Phoenix Risen 4.00 @ 7/2

Selected Newton Abbot – good to soft on this flat and sharp track

4.00 After landing a double , the most recent coming on soft ground at around this trip, the prominent racing Phoenix Risen has held his form well off his new mark , and was only narrowly beaten last time . Will handle the ground better than the rest .

1/4pt win Phoenix Risen @ 7/2

No Newton Abbot placepot picks .

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



4.20 It was a much improved run by Earn Your Stripes over C&D last time out in the mud , responding well to the drop in the ratings , the first time visor and a prominent ride to be a close 2nd . Off the same mark , looks a lively longshot .

1/4pt  ew Earn Your Stripes @ 16/1

5.30 Golden Valour is a long standing maiden but was only narrowly beaten over C&D in the mud and off this mark last time . Another good run expected .

1/4pt  ew Golden Valour @ 6/1

Selected Windsor – good ground on this flat and galloping track

5.40 After winning well on debut , Watch My Tracer was aimed at Royal Ascot and did very well finishing 7th of 20 beaten just 5 lengths , that is why he’s a 2/7 shot in a modest maiden from the worst of the draw and carrying a penalty .

No Bet

6.10 Another modest looking maiden and Crocus Time looks a solid fav after two good runs , the latest when trying to make all over a longer tip and only beaten  2 lengths . Similar tactics will make her hard to catch .

1/4pt win Crocus Time @ 9/4

6.40 Matloob is a very well related juvenile , costing the top stable £120,000 . He came good third time of asking , giving the field a head start and an easy beating at Wolver .With a stack of early pace amongst his rivals , he can lie in wait before pouncing . Switch to turf shouldn’t be an issue .

1/2pt win Matloob @ 11/8

7.10 Just Call Me Pete just doesn’t know how to run a bad race , despite creeping up the ratings and was a close 3rd over C&D last time off this mark , and that puts him bang in the picture in a winnable heat . Treacherous is rarely far away and wasn’t far behind the tip last time , so worth a rev fc in a race lacking depth .

1/4pt win  Justcallmepete @ 11/4  1/4pt rev Fc Justcallmepete- Treacherous



8.40 Absolute Queen comes here on a hat-trick and won cleverly here last time , suggesting the 3 pound hit won’t be an issue in a winnable finale .

1/4pt win Absolute Queen @ 4/1

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

6.00 This is very much for the taking with the fav Russian Rumour penalised for a most overdue win , and the drop in trip and the switch to tapeta unlikely to be of any help in this race for amateur riders . The consistent Al Azhar also has it to prove going up in trip and switching to tapeta. Champagne City is rated a lofty 125 over hurdles and relished the Ponty mud a few starts back , winning well off just a 2 pound lower mark . He’s had excuses since and runs well here .

1/4pt win Champagne City @ 5/1

7.30 The consistent and luckless looks very likely to get her reward, finally , in this modest handicap, but the bookies make her a 1/2 shot, which looks about right .


8.30 Araifjan is rarely far away and runs this C&D very well . Well drawn and if ready to go after 2 months off , shouldn’t be far away .

1/4pt ew Araifjan @ 7/1
