Mac’s Xpress 3.55 @ 28/1
El Champo 4.30 @ 5/1
Hang in There 2.40 @ 11/4
Selected Thirsk – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
1.50 Pfinstberg has been seriously knocking at the door at this trip, ground and mark but in a race for apprentices, his rider George Bass is struggling presently and is inexperienced here . The consistent Visitant ran well over C&D on soft ground a few races back , off a slightly lower mark and has a smart rider aboard .
1/4pt ew Visitant @ 7/1
5.50 The ultra consistent Caribbean Sunset goes very well on soft ground and last time proved he stays this trip well . Nice ew play .
1/4pt ew Caribbean Sunset @ 7/1
Selected Brighton – soft ground on this undulating , sharp and tricky track .
3.05 PREMIUM RACE
3.40 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Worcester – good ground on this flat and galloping track
2,40 Hang on There is a top handicapper and responded well to a change in tactics last time , coming off the pace to beat a useful type at Stratford . He’s up 5 pounds , but that just puts him on his peak mark over hurdles . Another big run likely .
1/2pt win Hang On There @ 11/4
6.10 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Listowel – good ground on this flat and sharp track
2.10 After winning a point on debut , the well related Mayor’s Walk was bought into the de Bromhead stable for £145,000 . Rachel Blackmore rides and worth a dabble .
1/4pt win Mayor’s Walk @ 11/2
2.45 Many of these would prefer a longer trip giving the luckless Lookondebrightside an ew chance , and was 2nd in this last year.
1/4pt ew Lookondebrightside @ 12/1
3.20 A big field for this valuable handicap and a case can be made for plenty but the front running novice Boher Road impressed last time, putting him on a fair opening handicap mark. There are other front runners in opposition but still looks capable .
1/4pt ew Boher Road @ 7/1
3.55 This has a very winnable look to it and I like the look of one of the longshots in Mac’s Xpress , not beaten far at all off around this mark of late and took an unlucky late fall last time when bang in contention.
1/2pt ew Mac’s Express @ 28/1
4.30 The lightly raced youngster El Champo was a smart winner in his first handicap last time , and could be up to the 7 pound hit .
1/2pt win El Champo @ 5/1
5.05 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
4.52 Not a deep nursery and the fav is the consistent Pinpoint , a close 2nd here last time, but not at all certain to appreciate the extra furlong on breeding so the nod goes to the in form Rising Force , who has seriously stepped up since going handicapping on polytrack , and comes here on the back of a solid 2nd off this mark , trip and surface last time . Late player .
1/4pt win Rising Force @ 9/2
5.30 Port Erin goes for the hat-trick off just a 2 pound higher mark and also very well drawn , but is new to polytrack . Mrs Gallagher comes here on the back of three solid runs , two of those over C&D and likely to run her race again .
1/4pt ew Mrs Gallagher @ 9/1
7.30 A case can be made for plenty of these but I’m with one of the least exposed in the race with Intricate Pillar , who won his maiden here and recent efforts suggest both her mark and the extra furlong will suit . Well drawn , late player .
1/4pt ew Intricate Pillar @ 12/1
8.00 The fav is the Godolphin runner Wild Hurricane, who is very hard to fancy on recent efforts. The admirably consistent Lady OF Arabia is a little high in the ratings , but not by much . Well drawn and a C&D winner .
1/2pt win Lady Of Arabia @ 11/2
