The C(o)up can be his in the 3.37

Today’s multi 3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Dynamite Kentucky 12.52 @ 5/1

Coup De Pinceau 3.37 @ 15/2

Phoenix Glow 4.20 @ 10/3

Selected Chepstow- good to soft on this undulating , galloping and quite stiff track

12.52 Dynamite Kentucky was highly consistent last year and held his form well despite being pushed on to a stiff looking mark . As an ex pointer he should be fine going over fences for the first time and both C&D and ground should be fine . Opposition fat from awesome .

1/2pt win Dynamite Kentucky @ 5/1

2.52 No Risk Des Flos landed two good wins last season , but probably found his last run of the year , one race too many as he disappointed badly . He’s on a very fair mark going chasing for the first time and appeals as a lively longshot in a winnable looking heat .

1/4pt win No Risk Des Flos @ 10/1

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

2.37 Looks a match between the in form pair of Obey The Rules and Izzy’s Champion , but last year’s winner gets the call.

1/2pt win Izzy’s Champion @ 3/1

3.37 A marathon , and the proven Marathon horse is the strong staying Coup De Pinceau , who landed a Cheltenham 4 miler at odds of 100/1, but no fluke to it , and that win puts him on a workable mark . Nothing else is proved at the trip but the progressive Wake Up early certainly shapes like an out and out stayer but recent winners Court Dreaming and Rapid Raider , don’t send out the same signals .

1/2pt win Coup De Pinceau @ 15/2

Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack

2.30 An open handicap and all of : Trueba , Cedar Rapids, Instrumental, Darkdeserthighway  The Mpexkid and The Bog Bank , all bring good recent C&d form to the table and off today’s marks , but the latter looks set to run his usual honest race from a good draw and after a close 3rd last time .

1/4pt  ew The Bog Bank @ 15/2

4.00 Hard seeing Beleagurement doubling up with a stiff penalty and an extra furlong to travel while Chica Power also has a stiff task with a 5 pound hit . Meastro Stick was unlucky behind Chica Power last time, but only beaten 2 lengths and with the 5 pound pull , looks a very solid ew play  .

1/2pt  ew Maestro Stick @ 7/1

4.30 Connections have been fiddling around with trip for youngster Finke River, who’s showed that he is capable of success here and this trip could be the answer .

1/4pt win Finke River @ 6/1

5.40 A very uncompetitive finale and worth chancing one of the longshots in Lariat . He comes here in solid form from the turf and over hurdles and while his latest effort over C&D can only be judged as being fair, it still stands out in a race devoid of serious contenders .

1/2pt ew Lariat @ 14/1

Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack

4.20 It has to be a modest nursery if the fav , Evolicatt ,only landed a claimer last time , and previously in a polytrack nursery at Lingfield, was beaten 5 lengths off a slightly higher mark than today . Phoenix Glow did really well last time coming 2nd in a competitive nursery from the worst of the draw. Much better drawn tonight , mark left unchanged and longer trip should be fine as all 4 half brothers won over this trip and further .

1/2pt win Phoenix Glow @ 10/3



7.30 Dark Island remains unexposed and comes here on the back of a smooth win  at this track . Up 4 pounds and an extra furlong to travel, but not a deep race .

1/4pt win Dark Island @ 10/3

8.00 The well drawn So Savvy is respected in his double bid despite a 4 pound hit as he has the plum draw , and likely to have his own way up front . Rooful had gone close a few times before her easy win last time out over C&D , when it all dropped her way . She also has a 4 pound hit , but this late player has more substance in the form book .

1/4pt  win  Rooful @ 9/4
