Captain in charge in the 3.05

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Captain Morga 3.05 @ 9/2

Pure Angel 5.00 @ 5/2

Dinoo 8.00 @ 10/1

Selected Kempton – probably good ground on this flat and sharp track.

12.50 Alien Storm won nicely at Plumpton on similar ground in his first hurdle race but was no match for Invictus De Brion at the same track in a bumper and is a stone worse off ! The fav is Attaca , who may well need a stiffer test .

1/4pt win Invictus De Brion @ 5/2

2.00 Twig is a cracking little racehorse , well worth his lofty rating of 132 and last time showed that switching to hurdles was no issue with a grand effort at Cheltenham , finishing 2nd . He should land this but the drop in trip is far from ideal and I wouldn’t advice big hitters to step in at 1/3.

No Bet


3.05 Bold Plan ended last season with a hat-trick , but would much rather watch as his record running fresh is poor. Foddlerontheroof will no doubt be having a try at the Grand National, so this looks very much a pipe opener. Captain Morga is hard to knock and after a close 2nd at Aintree at this trip, ran well again , this time over fences . This is a definite winning opportunity .

1/2pt win Captain Morga @ 4/1

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

4.30 Sicario comes here on the back of 3 fine efforts , and despite the drop in trip not being ideal , h has found himself in a very winnable race as so many are just running poorly . He’s only 7/4 which warrants a pass as he’s only won once in the last 4 years , and that was 2 years ago, and this is a race for apprentices .

No Bet

5.00 The consistent The Big Board brings the best form to the table , but that has come on turf and over a longer trip. The well drawn prominent racing Pure Angel was a good 2nd over C&D last time , and could be hard to catch .

1/2pt win Pure Angel @ 5/2

5.30 Bookies have this right making it a match between the unxposed Hadley Park and the vey capable Venetian , but not much reward for getting it right .

No Bet

6.00 Irregular Verse runs for  top stable and cost a whopping £370,000 , so one to keep your eye on next year. His 2nd in a Yarmouth maiden on easy ground is comfortably the best form on offer , and the stable has a very good record with its juveniles here . He is odds on .

No Bet

6.30 Another uncompetitive juvenile maiden and the clear form horse is the well drawn Red Hat Eagle , a good 3rd on debut at this trip at Lingfield , but the stable has juvenile winners here .

1/2pt win Red Hat Eagle @ 11/8


7.30 Yet another uncompetitive maiden and recent Newcastle 2nd Rosa Light is certainly the one to beat on that form .

1/2pt win Rosa Light @ 6/4

8.00 At last a race to get your teeth into with a half a dozen strong contenders in : Gatecrasher Girl, Frencesi , Light Up Our Stars Lucky Sa Jore , Oh Herbert’ Reign and Dinoo all have clear strong shouts but I’m with the latter , who is with a top stable , has plummeted in the weights and comes here on the back of a much improved run when 3rd at Chelmsford City and as the stable does well here, looks a nice longshot .

1/4pt  ew  Dinoo @ 10/1

8.30 Golden Keeper comes here on the back of a  fine 3rd over C&D , in a far better race , when he had plenty of use made of him , and a slightly less positive ride , could see a deserved win .

1/4pt win Golden Keeper @ 5/1
