Plenty of Hope in the 3.20

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

New Hope Bullet 3.20 @ 10/3

Judicial 3.27 @ 6/1

Serjeant Painter 4.45 @ 6/4

Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack

1.00Not overly competitive as He’s A gentleman continues to disappoint and Mr Tyrell on a long losing run , unlikely to change from the worst of the draw. Recent clear turf winner switches back to the all weather on a workable mark and another big run expected but I’m with the prolific youngster Greg The Great , 3 wins in his last 5 , is 1 from 1 over C&D and his latest run suggests this mark is not too much of a burden .

1/2pt  ew Greg The Great @ 12/1

1.35 Fort Madox Brown comes here on the back of a cracking seris of efforts , 2 wins and 3 seconds , and is well drawn to attack again. He’s up in trip but has won over C&D and this could be the key to a return to The Winners’ Circle.

1/2pt  win Fort Madox Brown @ 11/2


3.20 Princeville badly let the side down at Wolver last time and has a tough task on his hooves to land this nursery off this stiff mark. He’s not the only one on a stiff looking mark , which offers another opportunity for the prolific New Hope Bullet , 3 wins in his last 4 races , proven on the surface and just two pounds higher for his latest win , beating another prolific sort in Safari Dream .

1/2pt win New Hope Bullet @ 10/3

Selected Listowel – good to soft on this flat and sharp track

2.00 Golden Days holds her form very well and off the same competitive mark , another good run expected .

1/4pt  ew Golden Days @ 7/1

3.45 Dragon of Malta is another who holds his form well and as he was 2nd in this last year off a similar mark , fair to expect a similar good effort .

1/4pt win  Dragon of Malta @ 5/1

4.20 A valuable Listed race with plenty in with a chance at the weights . The  consistent Casanova was caught out by the longer trip last time , and was a good 3rd in this last year .

1/4pt  ew Casanova @ 10/1

Selected Beverley – good ground on this stiff and galloping track


3.27 A good quality Class 2 sprint ,and the one with the clear edge at the ratings is the hard to predict Acklam Express , who has hit the frame at very long odds in top class sprints ,but does come into  this on the back of a couple of tame efforts. A true run race is assured with the admirably tough and consistent King Of Stars sure to bomb off, but is vulnerable late on in this class and will also have company from the useful pair of Bedford Flyer  and Bond Chairman , so a strong gallop assured . Judicial, is getting no younger , now a 10yo , but showed in an Ascot handicap recently he’s still a useful sprinter , finishing 2nd to the useful Manaccan , off  a mark of 102, with King of Stars a few lengths behind,  receiving weight . The tip is 3 wins and a place from 5 tries here and the strong gallop is perfect for his racing style .

1/2pt  win Judicial @ 6/1

4.37 The admirable Autumn Festival , 5 handicap wins this season, could be in for a struggle today, with a mighty 6 pound hit for struggling home in a lesser heat at Chepstow. Outsmart is a most genuine sort , who has a good record here . He was a close 2nd over C&D last time from a bad draw, and for his troubles is up 2 pounds today , and another bad draw, but still likely to run his race and appeals ew.

1/4pt  ew  Outsmart @ 8/1

Selected Warwick – good ground on this flat and sharp track

1.50 Sophosc is 1 from 1 over hurdles and recently landed a valuable handicap on the flat at Southwell , so a very much in form runner, but does carry a penalty , and will find it tough giving weight away to the ex-Irish Allbetsoff , who was still disputing the lead at Cartmel when falling at the last  and is the one to beat at the ratings .

1/2pt  win Allbetsoff @ 11/4

3.35 The in form Vision Des Flos won this last year , off the same mark , and if anything , this is less competitive .

1/2pt  win Vision Des Flos @ 6/4

4.45 The admirably consistent Serjeant Painter ran another big race last time when 2nd and despite the 2 pound hit , this extra yardage is very much in his favour , and competition not strong .

3/4pt  win Serjeant Painter @ 6/4

Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping

4.51 The fav is the lightly raced Glenister , a win and a 2nd in just two handicap runs , but up 2 pounds for just an Ok 2nd at Southwell last time , but does shape as this stiffer track will help . A chance can be given to quite a few of these : Baltic Baron,  Cotizen General, Daaris, Prophesise, Make A prophet and Cavendish and also a chance can be given to a longshot in Cease and Desist , not beaten far at all over C&D last time and worth a dabble in an open event .

1/4pt  ew  Cease And Desist @ 22/1

5.25 This is very much the opposite, searching hard for bits of form , but to no avail, and I make this a match between the in form Tiberio Force and Oscar Doodle, who’s run some solid races of late and was unlucky over C&D recently when his saddle slipped late on .

1/2pt win  Oscar Doodle @ 7/1

6.00 Again a race where few come into this with high hopes and a decent chance for the consistent Quercus Robur to upgrade some decent placed efforts .

1/2pt win Quercus Robur @ 4/1

7.30 Kiritimati Island came into his last race with high hopes , but this consistent sort struggled from the 1 box , receiving all of the kick back . Previous form gives hopes In a race with only around a handful of contenders .

1/4pt  ew Kiritimati Island @ 9/1

8.00 The consistent Variety Island suffered the same fate as the previous tip , racing from the 1 stall at Southwell. He too came into that race in fine shape and as he’s proven on the surface , trip and on a good mark , nice ew play .

1/4pt  ew  Variety Island @ 15/2
