Selected Hereford – good to firm on this flat and sharp track
3.35 The reliable Kentford Mallard recently resumed duties with a respectable 3rd at Fontwell . Off the same mark and back to a more suitable trip looks a nice ew play . I’d have been more confident if it wasn’t for the stable’s recent poor form.
1/4pt win Kentford Mallard @ 7/1
4.10 The admirable Ben Buie is now on a stiff mark , and as usual will try his utmost , but the longer trip is also an issue . Family Plot won after a similar break last season , and has won twice here . Mark is fine but another whose stable could be doing better .
1/4pt win Family Plot @ 3/1
Selected Leicester – very soft ground on this stiff and galloping track
2.15 Chances can be given to all of Macho Sun , Barney’s Angel , Kamanika and Wintrcrack while the 123 rated front running hurdler looks to be on a very good mark , but soft ground not his thing , and this looks a pipe-opener for him . The nod goes to C&D winner Karanika , who comes here on the back of a fine win over another stiff C&D at Sandown , which came in the mud , and just 2 pounds higher .
1/4pt win Karanika @ 9/4

4.25 The consistent Gold Link has far more places to his name than wins , but the opposition isn’t much to worry about , and is preferred .
1/4pt win Gold Link @ 7/4
5.00 The admirably consistent Enthused is certainly improving and comes here on the back of a cosy win at Ludlow, beating a couple of reliable yardsticks , and has no penalty . Will be hard to beat .
1/2pt win Enthused @ 9/4
Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping
4.55 A good quality handicap and plenty of contenders but there is still plenty of life in the legs of the admirable and prolific veteran Sir Chauvelain , who bounced back to form with a fine win at Southwell and backed it up with a respectable run at Ayr . 4 times a C&D winner and makes longshot appeal.
1/4pt ew Sir Chauvelain @ 16/1
6.30 Both the recent C&d winners in Pop Favorite and Mr Heinz have much more to do with their penalties. After landing a hat-trick last season , Bold Territories went into his shell somewhat , but shaped up well last time over C&D when a 2 lengths 3rd , off this declining mark , to offer hope tonight .
1/4pt win Bold Territories @9/2
7.00 PREMIUM RACE
7.30 Eleteria has won 2 of her last 3 but the 3 pound hit will have an effect . Rum Runner comes here on the back of a running on good 3rd over C&D last time , form good enough to seeing him getting involved .
1/4pt ew Rum Runner @ 9/1
8.30 The clear form horse is the admirably consistent Blackcurrent , who runs this C&D well and tenaciously . He went close off around this mark last time and is bound to be front rank throughout , along with two other front runners who are hard ton fancy and should send fav backers home happy.
1/2pt win Blackcurrent @ 2/1
