Gold run possible at good odds in the 4.30

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

1.00The two form horses bring similar , decent form to the table, but as We’renotreallythere has had plenty of chances , preference for the consistent Nightout , despite the wide draw.

1/4pt win Nightout @ 9/4

2.00 A good quality Class 1 for juveniles and preference is for the strong front runner Sirona, a winner of a Listed event in Germany last time on similar ground and proven  on a stiff track . Local Dynasty brings strong opposition as he impressed coming off the pace to win on the Sandown mud, so won’t be flagging late on here and Captain Winters also brings good form to the table , but likely to be between the first two mentioned .

1/4pt win Sirona @ 7/2

2.35 A Class 2 for stayers and the even money fav is recent Cesarawitch , magnificent 2nd In Vino Vitrix, who looks good for this , but even money too short for a slog around Ponty .
No Bet

3.10 Poker Face is 2 from 2 and runs for the powerful Southern stable of The Crisfords, who continue to bang in the winners. He hasn’t been that hard pressed in winning and goes handicapping on a very fair mark , but priced accordingly at evens, despite going up in trip and trying easy  ground for the first time . Cockalorum has responded well to help from the handicapper, and this C&D winner comes here on the back of a fine 2nd , over a trip a bit too short . Expect a prominent run , in what looks a competitive heat .

1/4pt  ew  Cockalorum @ 6/1

Selected Windsor – soft ground on this flat and galloping track


1.50 Despite carrying a penalty , hard looking past the useful Proverb , proven on easy ground . Radio Goo Goo, continues to hit the bar, and looking hard to win with . Proverb is 1/2.

No Bet

 2.25 Notre Maison is rarely far away , proven on soft ground and the mark is manageable . Could exploit a winnable heat with the drop in trip unlikely to help the well handicapped mud lover Porterinthehouse while both recent winners , Sparked , who landed  a particularly weak heat last time , and unproven on soft , and the reliable Ellie Piper , proven in the mud, could find it “ heavy going “ off their new marks .

1/4pt win Notre Maison @ 6/1


4.45 The consistent Platinum is now on  a stiff looking mark, and the majority of the other in form horses are unproven in the mud. The consistent late playing Essme , remains on a workable mark and handles cut . Nice longshot .

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

2.45 A weak event and as the overnight rain is no use to the in form Agent Saonois , recent Fontwell winner Who Is That is only 2 pounds higher and was unlucky a number of times last year off around this mark .

1/2pt win Who Is that @ 6/4

3.20 The hat-trick seeking Mordred has a good attitude and switches back to hurdles after a fine win over fences at Sedgefield, and the 2nd horse has sluiced in since . Up a nasty 7 pounds , but this won’t take much winning.

1/4pt win Mordred @ 3/1

3,55 All 4 of these have serious negatives , who’s going to fall over the line first ??

No Bet

4.30 The admirably consistent Glimpse Of Gold , could have done without the overnight rain, but it’s not  a massive hindrance to him . Comes here on the back of a big run over C&D off around this mark, and is against rivals all with a bit to prove .

1/4pt ew Glimpse Of Gold @ 8/1

5.05 This looks very straight forward for dual C&D winner Blade Runner , just 3 pounds higher than last time and up against weak opposition .

3/4pt win Blade Runner @ 11/10

5.40 A weak finale and the clear form horse is the luckless Milanese Rose . Should be her day .

1/4pt win Milanese Rose @ 11/8

Another Oddssey 5.00 @ 6/4

Crystal Dawn 5.30 @ 2/1

Manhattanville 6.30 @ 7/2

5.00 A most uncompetitive low grade apprentice handicap and the hat-trick certainly looks on for the progressive Another Odyssey , who last time looked on paper to have been set a tough task with a hefty 10 pound penalty for a win over C&D but was even more impressive winning at Southwell , and just 6 pounds higher and with top apprentice Ben de La Sayette in the saddle should be well too good for recent course winner Cavendish , but his win came in a modest heat and over a longer trip , and the 6 pound hit is very harsh .

3/4pt win Another Odyssey @ 6/4

5.30 Another uncompetitive heat and another stand out contender for top honours in the well handicapped ex- Irish Crystal Dawn , who was massively unlucky over C&D last time when blowing the start , but still went down by just a length , staying on strongly . With her usual good start , from a good draw and with Ben DLS claiming 3 pounds , a win looks on .

1/2pt win  Crystal Dawn @ 2/1

6.00 Yet another race with few serious contenders and a decent opportunity for C&D specialist Brazen diamond , despite now looking high in the ratings and from a wide enough draw, but hard to find an alternative .

1/4pt win Brazen Diamond @ 7/4

6.30 Back to another uncompetitive heat with one very solid contender . Manhattanville comes here on the back of two very solid placed efforts over C&D , nicely drawn and statistically , the first time cheekpieces  should help .

1/2pt win Manhattanville @ 7/2

7.30 It had to happen eventually , a much trickier puzzle to work out with so many having a clear chance on their best form . As a strong gallop is assured with the in  form pair of Auntie Margaret and Lexington knight sure to go off hard , this could give the advantage to the late players . Bookmark remains on a fair mark and was noted finishing strongly last time when beaten just a few lengths . He’s unproven on the surface still looks a lively longshot .

1/4pt  ew Bookmark @ 12/1

8.30 Another competitive heat but little wrong with the chance of track regular Defilade , who comes here on the back of a close 3rd here and this slightly longer trip could well suit .

1/4pt  ew Defilade @ 12/1
