Harry’s Bar 2.10 @ 13/2
Desert Voice 3.50 @ 8/1
Havana Pusey 4.30 @ 8/1
Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
2.10 The 7 time course winner Harry’s Bar has been eased to a most workable mark and in a race with a stack of early pace , this will very much suit this very effective late player .
1/2pt ew Harry’s Bar @13/2
3.40 Boadicea Belle has run well in her last 3 tries over C&D , hitting the frame every time and was only a lengthy behind Numidia last time but is far better drawn today while her rival is drawn in the car park . Solid ew play .
1/2pt ew Boadicea Belle @ 15/2
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Nottingham – good ground on this flat and galloping track
3.00 Worth a dabble on the outsider in the party in newcomer High Sport , runs for a top stable and cost a cool £130,000 .
1/4pt win High Sport @ 8/1
4.00 A good quality Class 4 stayers handicap but the market leaders both have something to prove . the admirably consistent Golden Shot , 4 wins and 2 seconds in his last 6 ! has just a 5 pound hit for a demolition job in the Ffos Las mud , but previously was only 2nd off a 10 pound lower mark than today. Campaign Trail had a simple task last time but previously was only 2nd off a 7 pound lower mark than today .Quantum Leap did very well in winning his first handicap last time, when starting very slowly , but coming back strongly , and the 5 pound hit looks manageable but I’m with the consistent hurdler in Mothill , only 3 lengths behind Quantum Leap , and he also had an unlucky looking run . Nice longshot .
1/4pt ew Mothill @ 14/1
4.30 In a short career Havana Pusey has rarely let the side down and after a smart effort at Sandown dropping to the minimum when 4th in a Listed race , went close at Epsom on easy ground but struggled next time in the Ascot mud . She’s a C&D winner who should have an ideal strong pace to wait on before pouncing late and true .

Selected Lingfield – first 3 races polytrack, last 3 turf on this sharp and undulating track
2.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.20 Except for being outclassed at Royal Ascot , the prominent racing Hot Front has run well in here other two runs , very well drawn and related to some useful all weather types .
1/2pt win Hot Front @ 2/1
3.50 Desert Voice was a short priced fav last time in a Class 2 handicap, but struggled on the soft ground . She’s only run 4 times and has 2 wins on her CV already , She’s with a top stable, well drawn and looks much overpriced for her chance .
1/2pt win Desert Voice @ 8/1
4.55 Not a deep race and the late playing Calcutta Dream ran well enough when 2nd last time to go one better in this company .
1/4pt win Calcutta Dream @ 5/2
5.30 A number of these drop in grade for this Classified and the nod goes to the prominent racing Manyama who has a close 2nd in a handicap on her CV .
1/4pt win Manyama @ 9/2
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping
5.25 PREMIUM RACE
6.00 The 7 times course winner Broctune Red has been holding his own in higher grade and another good course run expected .
1/4pt win Broctune Red @ 4/1
7.30 Masham Moor runs this C&D very well and off a workable mark , unlikely to be far away .
1/4pt ew Masham Moor @ 10/1
8.30 The combination of a drop in the ratings and a switch to this C&D resulted in a far better effort from Rockin Rosa , just beaten half a length and off just a pound more has to go close .
1/4pt win Rockin Rosa @ 11/2
9.00 Ben Macdui has dropped to a very good mark and this front runner has run well over C&D a few times of late . I’d have been more confident without Graham Lee in the saddle , a perfectly capable jockey but on a long losing run at the track .
1/4pt win Ben Macdui @ 7/1

Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
6.15 There was plenty of confidence behind Thomas Aquinas over C&D last time , despite a wide draw , and he won very well . He’s far better drawn tonight but does have a hefty 5 pound penalty and is 0 places from 4 tries at this longer trip . Chagall is holding his form well off his new mark and is preferred .
1/4pt win Chagell @ 9/2
6.45 A good quality Class 3 handicap and a chance is taken with the down in grade Benacre , who’s been keeping listed and Group company and can be excused a much lesser effort at Royal Ascot from a bad draw.
1/4pt ew Benacre @ 14/1
7.15 Croachill has gone close a few times of late , off higher marks and drops into Class 5 , for which his record is 1 from 1 and runs polytrack well .
1/4pt win Cruachill @ 11/2
8.15 Despite having the worst of the draw , there isn’t much early pace in this so Cuban Grey could well have his preferred spot front rank and looks a nice ew play at generous looking odds down in grade .
