1.15 Certainly worth a try on one of the longshots in this Classified in recent Chelmsford City all the way winner Moveonup . That was in a handicap, a far better race than today , and today’s 7 pound claimer got him away very nicely and kept on determinedly for the win . There’s not a great deal of early pace in this contest , and if he can beat Youllovemewheniwin to the first bend , we could be in business .

1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.20 The odds on fav Vega Sicilia brings very solid form to the table and will be hard to beat while the lightly raced Halic has the form in the book to be a contender . Almost all of the field are hold up types , except for recent winner Percy Jones , the win coming in a very weak maiden , but does have the form in the book off around this mark, trip and surface . Could pinch this from the front . Tralee Hills is another late player , but hasn’t been far away of late and another good run wouldn’t surprise.
1/4pt ew Percy Jones @ 11/1
3.55 The well drawn Man on A Mission is certainly on an upward curve and goes for the 4 timer . His last two wins have come over C&D and is 3 pounds higher today , quite enough for a low grade handicapper , but with so much early pace in this contest , they are likely to compromise their chances battling for the lead and the tip can lie in wait and pick up the pieces .
1/2pt win Man On A Mission @ 2/1
Selected Huntingdon – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
12.55 Duke Of Luckley was a good winner in his first chase at Catterick on similar ground , and next time was pulled up , over a trip just too far . Only 2 pounds higher than his win and this isn’t deep .
1/4pt win Duke Of Luckley @ 5/1
2.30 This is certainly more about quantity than quality and it looks good for Move It Like Minnie who backed up a win at Taunton with a good 2nd over C&D on similar ground . He was 12 lengths down at the line , but the winner looked different gravy .
1/2pt win Move It Like Minnie @ 2/1
3.00 A valuable Class 1 chase for mares and the prolific and useful Zambella is certainly the one to beat. She’s unlikely to be able to dominate today with the free going Found On in the field . but is as effective when stalking the pace . She is most versatile when it comes to ground and track and this is her best trip . The Irish raider Jeremy’s Flame could struggle on the ground and this C&D despite having a good chance at the ratings .
1/2pt win Zambella @ 5/4
3.35 An absolute red hot Class 2 stayers handicap and the short list is very long . Worth trying last year’s winner Risk And Roll at long odds , with two very decent efforts this season off around this mark .
1/4pt ew Risk And Roll @ 20/1
Selected Donny – good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.40 A valuable Listed race for juvenile fillies and certainly the one to beat is-trick seeking Arclight , just an Ok type on the flat but looks a far better hurdler . She stands out in this field .
3/4pt win Arclight @ 6/5
3.15 Youngster Saint Segal is 2 from 2 over fences but the quicker ground , track and a very hefty 15 pound hit presents him with a very stiff task, but is still favourite in this hot handicap . Before Midnight was a close 2nd in this last year off a higher mark , and has run respectively this year , but at the odds I prefer a play on Gold Des Bois , who wasn’t far behind in that race and will relish the drying ground.
1/4pt ew Gold Des Bois @ 25/1

Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
5.00 Quite an open good standard handicap but Halcyon Spirit followed up a win over C&D with a good 3rd , again over C&D , off this mark , and looked like he’d been given too much to do , and the young jockey keeps the ride , Wiser for the experience ?
1/4pt ew Halcyon Spirit @ 8/1
6.30 Bronze River put in an improved run to win over C&D and did very well with his stiff penalty to finish 3rd when dropping in trip , suggesting his present mark is manageable . Back to his best trip tonight .
1/4pt ew Bronze River @ 8/1
7.30 You always get a good run for your money with No Speed Limit and has run very well from wide draws before .
1/4pt win No Speed Limit @ 4/1
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
5.15 The consistent Typewritten is running well despite being on a stiff enough mark . This is his best surface and the longer trip looks within range .
¼ pt win Typewritten @ 3/1
5.45 Donald Llewelyn was a shock winner at Kempton at this trip , winning by 4 lengths from a bad draw. That was his first race for 2 years and is a prime candidate to “ Bounce “ Miss Sligo is in good form and no issues with trip or surface .
1/2pt win Miss Sligo @ 4/1
6.15 Too Much brings the best form to the table and is proven on the surface . She has a couple of Godolphin fillies to worry about , but on breeding this ,longer trip will see her in an even better light.
1/4pt win Too Much @ 5/1
6.45 Algheed’s winning run may well come to a halt in his 4 timer bid with a 5 pound hit and last time at this trip he only just clung on , and that came off a 9 pound lower mark ! Free Solo comes into this in top form and despite his present mark being testing appeals at the odds mostly against rivals with even more to do on paper .
1/4pt ew Free Solo @ 12/1
7.15 Breezyandbright is in rude form and comes here on the back of two easy wins , and in a race lacking depth , looks well capable of overcoming the 5 pound hit .
1/2pt win Breezyandbright @ 5/2
8.15 War In Heaven was massively impressive over C&D last time and the 5 pound hit unlikely to stop him in a modest finale .
3/4pt win War In Heaven @ 11/10
