Delirious Dream 5.00 @ 11/4

Impeachment 3.27 @ 3/1

Selected Beverley – soft ground on this stiff and galloping track

1.42 This low grade contest for apprentices looks to be a 3 horse war between a trio of in form types : Caracristi , but soft ground a worry as is the jockey , who’s still coming to terms with the job , Martin’s Brig , two big runs of late , soft ground OK  and has a good jockey aboard but the nod goes to last time out long priced winner at Carlisle in Sixstar , who improved considerably for the big step up in trip , shouldn’t find this stiff circuit an issue after Carlisle and that win came on easy ground and ridden by a competent rider.

1.2pt win Sixstar @ 4/1

2.17 Havana By The Sea stepped up massively on her debut with a running on 5th in a valuable Sales Race at York, but how will she cope with the ground and drop in trip . I’m chancing the well drawn Bryce after a decent 4th last time, elements of soft ground winners in the  pedigree and this stiff C&D should suit .

1/4pt  ew  Bryce @ 22/1

3.27 The well drawn Impeachment brings the best form at this trip to the table and soft ground fine on pedigree .

1/2pt  win Impeachment @ 3/1


5.05 Just Hiss is not the horse he was, but he is now a 9yo , but has been holding his form very well since dropping into this grade and plummeting in the ratings . Well drawn and soft ground fine , which is not likely for the in form runners in Tele Red and Dr Rio .

1/4pt  win Just Hiss @ 6/1

Selected Sandown – very soft ground on this stiff and galloping track


5.10 Mrembo holds her form very well , including racing off her present mark . She should see out this trip on today’s ground , and optimism for the ground from the pedigree .

Selected Yarmouth – good ground on this flat and galloping track

2.10 Full marks to the admirably consistent Priscilla’s Wish , who comes here on a track 4 timer , but does drop in trip , and despite her last win suggesting she’s capable of wins off higher marks , there are plenty of sprint specialists in opposition . Breach is rarely far away over this type of C&D and mark and again shouldn’t be far away .

1/4pt  ew Breach @ 15/2

2.45 The odds on fav is the clear form horse in Obelix , a good 2nd on debut at Newmarket , but that was on soft ground . Nader king runs for top connections , wears the Derby winning silks and for Sir Michael Stoute and they must have liked what they are seeing as his value soared from a lofty £225,000 as a foal to £340,000 as a yearling . Has to be worth a dabble .

1/4pt win Nader King @ 8/1



5.00 The drop in trip is the issue with the short priced fav Cancan In The Rain and preference is for recent Catterick winner Delirious Dream , who did well to land the odds down in trip at the tight Catterick and stays this trip well and on a very fair mark .

3/4pt  win Delirious Dream @ 11/4

5.37 The progressive Dark Side Thunder comes here on a 4 timer , and has been winning pretty much as he liked, but they were all on the all weather ,and best form on turf , was a clos 2nd , but off a 13pound lower mark than today . Majeski Man has a clear chance after good 2nds the last twice but the nod goes to course regular Media Guest , a win and 3 places in 5 tries and has been holding his form well despite now being on a stiff enough mark .

1/4pt  ew Media Guest @ 15/2

Selected Kelso – good ground on this undulating and sharp track with a long galloping straight .

3,40 The useful and prolific chaser Mortlach should have few problems in this switching to hurdles , a discipline he is fine at , but is odds on .

No Bet

4.15 Alex Hales has done very well coaxing the front running Solo Saxaphone back to winning form and comes here on a hat-trick, and the stable is 1 from 1 making the 580 mile round trip and this front runner could well enjoy the run of the race from the front , but he’s never been the most reliable and I’m with one which is surely that in The admirably consistent Latino Fling , 5 wins and never out of the first 3 in her last 15 races ! and comes here on a hat-trick , looking a much improved mare and the 4 pound hit could have been much worse .

1/2pt win Latino Fling @ 11/4

4.45 In a weak contest , recent winner Raecius Felix can shrug aside the 5 pound hit and add another C&D win to his CV .

1/2pt win Raecius Felix @ evens

5.15 Comfortably the most competitive race on the card and despite likely to have unwanted company up front, Genever Dragon comes here in top form and despite a tricky mark, just gets the nod .

1/4pt  win Genever Dragon @ 7/2

5.45 The trip is way too short for If Not For Dylan while Tico Times 2 wins in his last 3 , has a stiff penalty and is a Cartmel specialist . Gold Du Bois ran a number of solid races last year off higher marks , but all ended in defeat . I’m with the very reliable Slanelough , who came to hand early last season , and put together a cracking series of runs of 2 wins and 3 close places ending with a lesser effort , probably finding that one race too many . Runs this track well and way overpriced .

1/2pt win Slanelough @ 9/1

6.15  A weak contest and recent C&D winner Getaman should have no problems adding to that , despite being 8 pounds higher as he’s been running well off around this mark in recent runs .

1/2pt  win Getaman @ 10/11
