Love his chance in the 4.00

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Loved One 4.00 @ 7/2

Bit Of A Quirke 5.12 @ 6/1

Elham Valley 5.50 @ 11/4

Selected Beverley – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track


3.40 The late playing prolific mare Casilli has 5 wins here from just 8 tries and ran just about as well as could have been expected in her recent comeback spin at Hamilton , racing from the worst of the draw and on ground softer than ideal . She remains on a career high mark but with Golden Sands sure to go a strong gallop and this front runner comes here in good form , but is 0 from 11 on turf !

1/4pt win  Casilli @ 7/2

5.12 The front running Bit Of A quirke is another track star with 6 wins here , all at 2 furlongs shorter , but showed last season when winning at this trip at Leicester on fast ground , the trip is no issue , especially as he’s likely to have his own way up front and is back on that mark . Both of his runs this season have been typically gallant efforts .

1/2pt win Bit Of A Quirke @ 6/1

Selected Hamilton – good to firm on this undulating, stiff and galloping track


2.50 Lieutenant Rascal went close over C&d last time and should go one better today as he brings the best form to the table .

1.2pt win Lieutenant Rascal @ 13/8

3.20 Lord Abama came from way off the pace at Carlisle last time and only failed narrowly to catch a very much progressive sprinter . There’ll be plenty of pace in the contest with a guaranteed front runner and two down in trip whose only hope is to be front rank .

1/2pt win Lord Abama @ 2/1

4.20 The front running Arranmore comes here on the back of a close 3rd at Thirsk and the return to a stiff track very much in his favour and could take a bit of catching .

1/2pt win  Arranmore @ 9/4

Selected Newton Abbot – good to firm on this flat and sharp track

3.30 The ex_irish pointer Chief Black Robe sluiced in on his first start for Fergal O’Brien but a couple of negatives to overcome today . He’s up 7 pounds , which looks well within range , but does drop half a mile in trip , which has to have an effect around this tight track and has to prove himself going right handed . Worth a dabble on the Nicky Henderson trained winning pointer who could easily have more to show now going chasing.

1/4pt win Swapped @ 7/2

4.00 The drying ground and the 10 pound hit presents recent soft ground Ffos Las winner Sherborne  with a few questions to answer , but in fairness is lightly raced and could have more to offer . Clear preference however is for the late playing and well handicapped Loved One , who was only denied by a short head in his recent comeback spin in a competitive small field and has run well here before . Ground and trip are very much in his favour .

1/2pt win Loved One @ 7/2

Selected Cartmel – good ground on this undulating and sharp track with a very long run in

5.50 Not a deep race and the likelihood of a strong pace is good news for the clear form horse Elham Valley .

1/2pt win Elham Valley @ 11/4

6.20 This looks very much a match between the two last time winners , who both like to go with the pace and are hard to separate as both should like the C&D and ground , but at the odds Special Rate has to be the bet against the odds on idealdes Villerets .

1/4pt win Special Rate @ 10/3

6.50 Hey Bob won this last year off around this mark and had a pipe opener recently but I’m chancing the front running Bugle Major , a fair sort on the flat and could respond well to this big drop in class .

1/4pt  win Bugle Major @ 7/1
