3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Windy Cove 4.00 @ 10/3
Woodlands Charm 5.05 @ 10/3
Reckon I’m Hot 6.25 @ 3/1
1.05 The lightly raced Greg The Great won well over C&D last time , beating a useful yardstick who’s held his form well in the face of stiffer tasks and should confirm form over Gilbert in this uncompetitive race .
1/4pt win Greg The Great @ 5/2
2.10 Great opportunity for King Of war after a series of placed efforts and has a lot less to prove than Agapenthar, whose best form has come off lower marks on the all weather .
1/2pt win King of War @ 2/1
2,45 PREMIUM RACE
3.15 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Southwell – good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.50 The front running Captain Ivan , is certainly due a win , 3 consecutive 2nds , one of those over C&D and as Saley Gardens wasn’t at all fluent on his chase debut and Zoffalee needs further , looks a good shortie.
3/4pt wn Captain Ivan @ 5/4
3.30 PREMIUM RACE
4.00 The lightly raced windy Cove put in a much improved effort at Warwick when switched to front running ,and had Maria Magdalena 4 lengths back , well held, and should cope with the 5 pound hit .
1/2pt win Windy Cove @ 10/3
4.30 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Windsor – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
5.05 This will take little winning and the clear form horse in Woodlands Charm should repay the 430 mile round trip which Nigel Tinkler has made . He does well on his jaunts , but not so great at Windsor, but this well drawn prominent racer is just 2 pounds higher for his last win and in the context of this race , certainly race winning form.
1/2pt win Woodlands Charm @ 5/2
6.35 With Victory having stamina doubts, looks a match between the in form pair of Cliffs Of Glory and After Eight and the nod going to the former , slightly on a better mark .
1/4pt win Cliffs Of Glory @ 2/1
7.05 The short priced fav is the reliable King of The Kippax , but he’s creeping up the ratings and this C&D could be sharp enough . Both Let’s Fly Again and Youthful King have been going well of late and the latter did well first time at this trip at Sandown last time , beaten around 4 lengths . He clearly stays , and off a 2 pound lower mark, could switch back to front running and take some catching here .
1/2pt win Youthful King @ 5/2
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
6.25 Very few come into this with hopes and it looks a match between a pair who fought out the finish over C&D recently but with a 3 pound pull for a half length defeat , Reckon I’m hot can gain revenge over short priced fav Brazen Idol .
1/2pt win Reckon I’m hot
7.25 Both Bang on Th bell and Miss belladonna are proven over C&D but are now racing on too high a mark . The consistent Crush and Rush was narrowly beaten off this mark last time, in a better race than this , and is proven on the surface .
1/4pt win Crush And Rush @ 13/8
9.00 Mr Fustic was a cosy winner over C&D last time , but only won quite narrowly and the 6 pound hit won’t help and has been absent almost 2 months . The consistent Calonne was a length 2nd over C&d last time . Up another pound , but Holly Doyle rides tonight and that could make the difference .
1/2pt win Calonne @ 9/2
