Selected Hereford – soft ground on this flat and sharp track


2.25 Gardener has impressed in both of his novice hurdle races , staying the trip strongly anjd willingly , but both runs came at Leicester ,a stiff and galloping track very different to today . The lightly raced Militades went close in his recent comeback spin at Catterick and the winner has been far from disgraced since . He’s up 3 pounds , but that shouldn’t stop him running another big race .

1/4pt win Militades @ 9/2

3.00 The hat-trick seeking Bill Baxter can’t be ruled out despite an 8 pound hit while the soft ground is no ideal for Honneur D’Ajonc . Super Six is on a good mark compared to his hurdles rating but hasn’t set the world afire as yet over fences , but has had some stiff tasks . He’s 1 from 1 at the track , the win coming on soft ground .

1/4pt win Super Six @11/2


4.10 John O’Shea is a master with his Hunter Chasers , and has lifted a number of big prizes in this sphere . He is particularly excited by the prolific Envious Editor and we saw why last time when sauntering home in the Taunton mud . This is a good field but the tip looks one to keep on your side in the forthcoming festivals .

1/2pt win Envious Editor @ 6/5

Selected Plumpton – good to soft on this gently undulating and sharp track


3.50 With both recent winners Art Of Illusion and Uallrightharry both penalised and both having patchy profiles anyway , a deserved win may come to the in form Ballymagroaty Boy , who comes here on the back of 2 big runs over hurdles , the latest just beaten 2 lengths , and tried every inch . He’s back over fences but ran well in this sphere when last seen over larger obstacles and can race off a 4 pound lower mark .

1/4pt win Ballymagroaty Boy @ 7/2

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

3.25 Head Law rattled off a hat-trick of handicap wins last season and ran well off this mark in his recent comeback spin and this C&D is young enough to improve further .

1/4pt win Head Law @ 6/1

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

5.30 Apache Spirit is with a good stable and did well last time when a close 3rd at Southwell at this trip , and the two ahead have both won since . He had Prince Nabeel just behind , but the tip is 2 pounds better off . He came from off the pace which is the place to be with so much early pace in the contest . Ignac Lamar has it to prove up 5 pounds and in trip but Monty Man made all at Newcastle last time but the 5 pound hit will test and will find it tough dominating this field .

1/2pt win Apache Spark @ 3/1

6.00 Split Elevens is rarely far away and was a close 2nd over C&D last time , and off the same mark could go one better in a race lacking depth .

1/4pt win Split Elevens @ 11/4

7.00 This has a very winnable look to it with recent Southwell winner Gifted Gold likely to find it tough off this mark and the luckless Wadacre Grace , 5 consecutive seconds , is plainly in  the grip of the handicapper . Colombidea backed up a smart win in a maiden here with a narrow defeat at Kempton at this trip and mark and the good stable must think a lot of here as next time she ran in a Listed race in France , but wasn’t up to it , but this is chunks easier .

1/2pt win Colombidea @ 7/2

7.30 Motawaafeq comes here on the back of another big run from the front when a close 3rd at Southwell , and the 2nd horse has won since. He’s not assured of having the lead to himself but has run just as well when having to be a bit more patient . Should be his night .

3/4pt win Motawaafeq @ 11/4

8.30 City Escape did well coming off the pace to score over C&D last time , but the 4 pound hit won’t help . King Carney was only 2 lengths behind  , and despite not having won for over 2 years , he’s never been so low in the handicap . Nice ew play .

1/4pt  ew  King Carney @ 11/1
