Duc De Beauchene too good for opposition in the 3.30

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Duc De Beauchene 3.30 @ 2/1

Senesi 4.51 @ 5/2

Iron Sheriff 5.40 @ 11/2

Selected Windsor – good to firm on this flat and galloping track – speed track

1.30 As most of these are more potent on soft ground or a furlong less, As If By Chance responded well to the switch to hold up tactics with a strong finishing 3rd of 16 at Donny . A good pace is assured , his stable , who does well here , makes a 430 mile round trip and top track jockey Tom Marquand takes the ride.

1/4pt win As If By Chance @ 4/1


4.51 The lightly raced Senesi was well supported in her first handicap and race on turf , winning very comfortably at Redcar and looks well capable of defying the 6 pound penalty in a winnable heat .

1/2pt win Senesi @ 5/2

No Windsor placepot

Selected Huntingdon – good ground on this flat and galloping track

1.35 Catuaba did very well on his handicap debut when upped to this trip , making all in willing fashion, just getting the better of the consistent Jack The Farmer , and the weight differential is the same today . The tip should have his own way up front and in a race for conditional jockeys , the able Lily Pinchin keeps the ride , claiming a valuable 3 pounds .

1/4pt win Catuaba @ 13/8

3.50 This should rest between a couple of improvers in the hat-trick seeking Kingfast , who comes here on a hat-trick after two easy wins and could well be up to the 9 pound hit , and the booking of able 5 pound claimer Jack Hogan helps , up against easy Worcester winner Bluebella , in her first race at this trip in a handicap . Tip’s form has a bit more substance .

¼ pt win Kingfast @ 3/1

4.55 Red Force One was narrowly beaten here last time on similar ground and this mark . Extra furlong is the only issue .

1/4pt win Red Force One @ 6/4

Selected Redcar – good to firm on this flat and galloping track


3.25 After a good win at Newcastle , Cavalier Approach showed he was just as potent on quick turf with a close 3rd at Musselburgh , a run which gives him clear claims .

1/4pt win Cavalier Approach @ 7/2

4.36 The lightly raced Dukedom runs for a top stable and wears famous colours . On a very fair mark in his first handicap and no issue with trip , ground and ran well first race last season .

1/2pt win Dukedom @ 6/4

5.10 The late playing Bearwith is the likely winner in a modest heat and just about worth a play .

1/4pt win Bearwith @ 11/8

5.40 Iron Sheriff finally got it right with a clear win at Newcastle , and the subsequent 7 pound hit looked sure to keep him quiet for a while , but did very well to be a close running on 5th on turf at Wetherby and the return to this trip is very much in his favour in a winnable heat  .

1/2pt win Iron Sheriff

No Redcar placepot

Selected Cartmel – good ground on this undulating and sharp track with a very long run in .

2.20 A modest novice hurdle and the ex-Irish Come On Du Berlais has good form on the ground and fair to expect even better on her first run for the good stable of Fergal O’Brien .

1/2pt win Come On Du Berlais @ 11/8


3.30 The ultra reliable Duc De Beauchene saw it out very well when winning at Fakenham at this marathon distance . This C&D should fit this prominent racer like a glove and should overcome the 4 pound hit against unconvincing opposition .

3/4pt win Duc De Beauchene @ 2/1

4.05 The free going Whodini could be hard to catch around this sharp C&D and may be up to the 6 pound hit . And The New bounced back to form last time but did have the run of the race from the front , and is penalised and drops in trip . At his best , Sao is a big danger .

1/4pt win Whodini @ 11/4

4.40 The only certainty here is that it will be run at breakneck pace with a handful of front runners , this will enhance the chance of the late players. Step in recent Newcastle winner , capable of defying the 6 pound hit .

1/2pt win  Marshalled @ 7/2

5.15 John O’ Shea has a terrific record nurturing Hunter Chasers and runs two here , but The Creadan Rogue has the stronger credentials .

1/4pt win  The Creadan Rogue @ 7/2

Selected Leicester- good to firm on this stiff and galloping track

3.05 Zara’s Return has very solid claims of notching the double after a fine win in a competitive Newmarket handicap but Out Of Mischief has been running to this level in decent maidens and looks a lively longshot .

1/4pt  ew Out Of Mischief @ 20/1


4.48 The Big Board was very consistent last year and this C&D winner returns on a workable mark and looks well overpriced for his chance .

1/4pt ew The Big Board @ 20/1
