My Bonnie Lassie 11.45 @ 22/1
Bird For Life 3.45 @ 11/2
Fransham 3.03 @ 11/4
Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
11.45 Good chance of a long priced winner in the front running My Bonnie Lassie who’s gone close over C&D twice of late off around this mark and the young jockey rides him well .
1/2pt ew My Bonnie Lassie @ 22/1
12.15 Another winnable heat and another very tidy ew play in recent C&D winner Luna Queen . The 3 pound penalty keeps her competitive .
1/2pt ew Luna Queen @ 9/1
1.25 After two good 2nds , one at this trip and surface , Idee Fixee looks set to go one better .
1/2pt win Idee Fixee @ 15/8
2.00 What’s The Story continues to run well off this mark and has less to answer than many .
1/4pt ew What’s The story @ 10/1
2.35 Summerghand comes into this in tip top form and this late playing C&D winner is assured a strong pace to sit off and from a good draw looks good for this Class 1 sprint .
1/2pt win Summerghand @ 9/4
3.45 Bird For Life has pretty tidy career stats , 9 wins and 22 places from 75 runs , but has been hard to predict in the past . She really had no right to win at Chelmsford City last time down in trip , but win well she did , and just 2 pounds higher today . She comes here on a hat-trick and the young jockey has ridden this late player to perfection the last twice .
1/2pt win Bird For Life @ 11/2
Selected Wetherby – good to soft on this flat and galloping track
12.43 A tricky small field handicap chase but the consistent Nero Rock is overpriced for his chance .
1/4pt win Nero Rock @ 8/1
1.18 Worth risking youngster Iroko going up to a trip very likely to bring about improvement .
1/4pt win Iroko @ 7/1
1.53 It’s hard to knock the late playing Karl Phillipe and as he goes well fresh and remains on a workable mark , another good run expected .
1/4pt win Karl Phillipe @ 9/2
3.03 The well handicapped Fransham has a terrific record here and was a close 2nd over C&d on his recent comeback spin , and he usually needs his first run back .
3/4pt win Fransham @ 11/4
Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this mostly sharp and undulating track with a long galloping straight .
1.37 The prolific chaser Cawthorne switches back to hurdles on a workable mark and timber shouldn’t be an issue .
1/2pt win Cawthorne @ 2/1
2.12 Youngster Tea For Free is 2 from 2 over fences and looked particularly good here last time , but is very short odds . The prolific In Rem shape well first time over fences last time and is a tidy ew alternative .
1/4pt ew In Rem @ 8/1
2.47 Clear preference is for the tough and consistent Fortunnes Melody whose 7 pound penalty is eaten up by a useful claimer .
1/2pt win Fortunes Melody @ 5/4
Selected Cheltenham – good ground on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
12.35 I’d just rather watch the fav , the ex- French Blueking D’Oroux , now in the care of Paul Nicholls, but all form , albeit good, on deep ground . Irish raider War Correspondent looked good winning on debut , and was quite tidy on the flat , rated 81. C&D should suit .
1/4pt ew War Correspondent @ 8/1
1.10 PREMIUM RACE
1.45 PREMIUM RACE
2.20 PREMIUM RACE
2.55 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
5.00 The luckless Point Louise is rarely far away , including over C&D . Not well drawn but as a late player it’s no issue . Ridden by a vey experienced jockey in a race for amateur riders .
1/4pt win Point Louise @ 9/4
6.00 The bang in form Barenboim has a few things to prove as he is up a stiff 6 pounds and also by 2 furlongs . The lightly raced Sunstone runs in The Frankel colours for a top stable, but unconvincing so far . The consistent Genesius runs this C&D very well and this late player remains on a workable mark.
1/4pt win Genesius @ 9/2
6.30 Plenty of in form runners here : The progressive One More Dream goes for the 4 timer but up a telling 7 pounds , but saying that he’s been winning really well and no issues with trip or surface , but is not well drawn . Bobby Joe Leg comes here on a hat-tick after two wins at this trip at his beloved Newcastle , and no slouch here , but mar now looking very much on the high side . Chifa also comes here on a hat-trick after two C&D wins . Up 4 pounds but another not out of it while Owen Starlight recently broke his duck at Chelmsford City over an extra furlong , but is proven over C&D. The nod goes to the consistent Aviary , a close 2nd over C&D a few starts back off around this mark and if getting the breaks , this late player could come out best .
1/4pt ew Aviary @ 8/1
