Charles to dance away with the 1.45

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Charlees Street 1.45 @ 9/4

Gentleman Valley 3.15 @ 3/1

Medici Chapel 7.00 @ 6/1

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

1.45 Charles Street is a consistent sort over hurdles and on the flat and on the going , should have the legs of Active Duty , more potent on a soft surface .

1/2pt win Charles Street @ 9/4

2.45 The odds on fav is the hat-trick seeking Kateira ,but with  double penalty and drying ground an unknown , worth trying Passionate Pursuit , an unlucky late faller last time on good ground .

1/4pt win Passionate Pursuit @ 5/1

3.15 The drop in trip is unlikely to help the strong staying Martha Brae and with Kingofthewest showing a preference for softer ground , well worth a try with the lightly raced but already twice successful Gentleman Valley . An easy  good ground winner and backed that up with a big run on ground softer than ideal . Runs well fresh .

1/2pt win Gentleman Valley @ 3/1

4.15 The ultra consistent Elleon comes here on the back of another big run when a close 2nd at Donny on good ground and cruelly has been shoved up 4 pounds , but still gets the call with drying ground and a penalty against chief rival Mixedwave .

1/2pt win Elleon @ 9/4

Selected Taunton – good ground on this flat and sharp track


2.30 Hard to go overboard on any of these but worth an interest in one of the longshots in The Rain King , two very decent efforts here of late on good ground and worth chancing he’ll stay this longer trip .

1/4pt  ew The Rain King @ 20/1


3.30 The ultra consistent Boombawn put in a rare tame one last time but has the ground and probably this sharp C&D in his favour as well as possibly getting the run of the race from the front , and he has a terrific attitude in the finish . Still feasibly handicapped . Triple C&D winner Amelia’s Dance is creeping up the ratings , but can never be discounted here on her favourite ground .

1/4pt win  Boombawn @ 11/2

Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta

6.00 Not much early pace in this which will help the prominent racing English Spirit , who ran well for a long way on his recent comeback spin . On  a good  mark and a winner on tapeta .

1/4pt  ew English Spirit @ 11/1

6.30 Not a deep handicap and recent Wolver winner Seagrave Fox must have bright hopes of doubling up despite a 4 pound hit but preference is for Savannah Smiles , on a fair mark judged by his runs in maidens , proven on the surface and bred for this longer trip.

1/4pt win Savannah Smiles @ 11/2

7.00 The last time we saw the short priced fav Elvenia was at Royal Ascot , 8 months ago , running just a fair race . Too many doubts for my liking today so well worth rowing in with Medici Chapel , who’s with a top stable and runs in famous colours and ran to a decent level last time out at this trip at Wolver .

1/2pt  ew  Medici Chapel @ 6/1
