First Dynasty , First past the post in the 5.05

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Sir Jock Bennett 4.45 @ 4/1

Court Of Session 3.50 @ 7/2

First Dynasty 5.05 @ 12/1

Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack

3.50 The dual C&D winner Court Of Session has been holding his form well off his present mark . Very well drawn and runs well after a break of this length . Harry Burns claiming 3 pounds of course helps .

1/2pt win Court Of Session @ 7/2

4.30 The reliable Rock Chant took a backwards step last time but it can be forgiven as it’s easy being in the wrong place at the wrong time at Chester . He’s just 2 pounds higher for a gutsy win over C&D when beating a couple of reliable yardsticks and this prominent racer has clear claims again .

1/4pt win Rock Chant @ 3/1

5.05 Not a great deal of early pace in this decent Class 4 handicap which will help the reliable front running First Dynasty , who made all to land a maiden over C&D and backed that up with a narrow defeat at Wolver off this mark . Lovely longshot

Selected Ripon – good to firm on this sharp and undulating track

2.50 Woodlands Charm responded very well to the big drop in the ratings with a much improved run at Catterick on fast ground off this mark . This dual C&D winner is well drawn and can take advantage of rivals now on stiff marks for recent successes .

1/2pt win Woodlands Charm @ 6/1

3.25 Recently , the likeable It Just Takes Time just got the better of another pair who always run their races in Bay Breeze and Twelfth Night , and on revised terms the tip gets the nod , from the plot draw,

1/4pt win Twelfth Night @ 5/2

4.45 Not a deep race and being just 2 pounds higher for a good win at Haydock at this trip , Sir Jock Bennett gets the vote for the double .

1/2pt win Sir Jock Bennett @ 4/1

Selected Royal Ascot – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track

3.05 Struth had an impossible task last time , giving 7 pounds to the galloping grey Saint George , a close 2nd in yesterday’s Queen’s Vase , and despite a 4 pound hit , looks likely to get involved at long odds .

Selected Uttoxeter – probably soft ground on this undulating and sharp track with a long galloping straight

7.40 The prolific Blue Shark , 6 wins in his last 7 runs , started his wins off a mark of just 76 , and won well off 105 last time , He’s up another 6 pounds but has such an appetite for success , he can outstay his rivals on ground which will probably suit him best .

1/4pt win Blue Shark @ 10/3

Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack

5.50 The hat-trick seeking Big Bard is certainly not out of this despite his last two wins coming on turf , the latest off a 3 pound higher mark than tonight . His polytrack form is not shabby but preference is for recent all the way turf winner Alfred Cave , who has run well over C&D before , and from a wide draw.

1/4pt  win Alfred Cave @ 6/1

7.30 Double Down comes here on the back of two consecutive thirds , both at this trip and surface , and not beaten far either time . This isn’t a big ask and a deserved win could be his .

1/4pt win Double Down @ 5/2
