Today’s Multi – 50p ew Trixie & 50p ew treble

Billy Dylan 1.00 @ 10/1

Gangway 3.30 @ 6/1

Q Twenty Boy 5.50 @ 11/4

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

1.00Billy Dylan ran a cracker over C&D last time when trying to make all , from the worst of the draw and was only worn down close home by a neck . The draw is a bit better today and with a lack of early pace in the contest , Jack Mitchell, who gets on with the tip well , can have these at full stretch and despite a 2 pound hit , run another big race .

1/2pt  ew Billy Dylan @ 10/1

1.30 There was a bit of money around for the lightly raced Wrought Iron and he duly obliged . This looks no harder , and very solid chance with just a 3 pound hit .

1/2pt win  Wrought Iron @ 3/1

2.00 Glorious Charmer can be relied upon to  run his race , coming here on the back of 3 cracking runs all over C&D and around this mark . Another good run likely .

1/4pt  ew  Glorious Charmer @ 6/1


3.30 The fav is the Sir Mark Prescott trained Omniscient after a much improved effort in quite a deep Salisbury maiden . His opening mark looks fair enough but does go up markedly in trip and is new to the surface . I much prefer the chance of The Johnston Family trained Gangway  , a prominent racer who is 1 from 1 over C&D and despite now being 6 pounds higher went close at Nottingham off this mark . Not well drawn but not much early in the contest and the stable has a terrific record here in 3yo handicaps.

1/2pt  ew Gangway @ 7/1

4.00 A very close friend of mine is a part owner of the long standing maiden Babe Alicious, but she put in a terrific effort over C&D recently when trying to make all but just running out of gas late on to be an honourable 3rd and backed that up with  solid 4th at Bath down in trip . She’ll run her race again but has a devil of  job trying to lead up from the worst of the draw . I’ve been watching the late playing Giant Steps of late and this could be run to suit this late player .

1/4pt  ew  Giant Steps @ 11/1

4.30 The well handicapped Bold Territories responded well to the big drop in the ratings last time with a close 4th at Newcastle , Well drawn and could run these down late on .

1/4pt  win Bold Territories @ 5/1

Selected Ponty – good to firm on this undulating , stiff and galloping track

3.15 A valuable Class 1 event for fillies and at the ratings, very few with high hopes . Thunder Beauty doesn’t win many but often competes in Group company and last time ran an absolute screamer at Royal Ascot to be 2nd in a Group 2 . She’ll have no issues with this stiff and undulating track and is preferred to the admirably tough and consistent Roman Mist , who has a penalty to shoulder and unlikely to appreciate the stiff finish .

1/2pt  win Thunder Beauty @ 2/1

3.45 The front running Dream Composer is likely to get his own way up front and could take a bit of catching at a track he runs well .He brings impressive form figures to the table 3 seconds and 2 wins and is holding his form well despite nudges up the ratings and just a pound higher for a cracking 2nd of 16 over C&D last time .

1/2pt win Dream Composer @ 5/2

Selected Brighton – good to firm on this undulating , sharp and very tricky track

5.40 Low grade sprint sure to be a strongly run affair with veteran King Crimson still able to go a nifty click, but finds it very hard seeing it out nowadays , and the wide draw no help. Gatwick Kitten is 1 from 1 over C&D, the win coming In a better race in a handicap and is preferred .

1/2pt win Gatwick Kitten @ 4/1


7.10 Wisper is 2 wins and a place in 3 tries here and this late player was just given too much to do last time at Bath and as course form counts for so much here , is preferred .

1/2pt win Wisper @ 7/4

Selected Ffos Las- good to firm on this flat and galloping track

5.50 Despite many good placed efforts, Q Twenty Boy was looking a pushover in the finish but it finally came right at the 17th attempt , and which is often the case with long standing maidens , is hungry for more success, and 2 more have come his way , the latest a clear win at Goodwood at this trip and backed that up with a creditable 2nd at Salisbury in much higher grade . This is a modest contest and has the edge over clear danger Monsieur Fantaisie as the tip has form on flat tracks ,which the danger doesn’t .

1/2pt win Q Twenty Boy @ 11/4

6.50  As the consistent pair of Shut and Dance and Another Odyssey have both been nudged up the ratings , worth a dabble on Goodison Girl , a running on 4th in a decent event at Chepstow , and with stamina assured , could be ridden with more purpose tonight .

1/4pt win Goodison Girl @ 8/1

7.20 A good Class 2 contest and chances can be given to most but the nod goes to the front running Percy’s Lad , who may be a bit high in the ratings now but could take some pegging back on this galloping track . Space Trucker is 2 from 2 and last time was particularly impressive while Red Mirage is 2 from 2 for this stable and another with clear claims .

1/4pt win Percy’s Lad @ 4/1

Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this undulating, quite sharp track with a long galloping strait

6.30 Only 3 go but not easy at all to find the victor but as both Geronimo and La Dominiale are now on testing marks and as Maskia comes here on the back of a narrow defeat , in another 3 horse field over C&D and the proximity of the useful 3rd horse suggests it was no fluke and off a 2 pound higher mark , taken for the upset , but he’s much shorter odds today.

¼ pt win Maskia @ 7/2


8.30 Another 3 horse race and the odds on fav is the professional loser Vis a Vis , who for some time now has been showing little inclination in the finish . Son Of Alicia’s Lady has just his 2nd state for Donald McCain and now going hurdling over a more suitable trip, this former pointer could be another outsider of 3 going in .

1/4pt  win Son Of Aliciaslady @ 7/1
