Mount Kosciuszko is at the peak of his powers

Today’s Multi

£1 trixie & £1 treble

Minella Voucher 2.50 @ 7/4

Tico Times 3.25 @ 5/4

Mount Kosciuszko 4.55 @ 2/1

Selected Nottingham – probably good to soft on this flat and galloping track


2.40 a chance can be given to all 6, but as Lady Valentine is the only one proven at the trip and ground gets the nod . She was put up in trip considerably last time at Chester and made a right fist of it , only going down narrowly and the 2 pound hit keeps her competitive . She’s unexposed as a stayer and showed a likeable attitude at The Roodee.

1/4pt win Lady Valentine @ 11/2

3.50 The bottom two are hard to fancy but the other five all have claims but the nod goes to the strong staying Have Secret , who has certainly improved since tackling longer trips and comes here on the back of a strong finishing 3rd in  deep Ayr nursery . Up 2 pounds but on pedigree and the way he races , today’s trip of 2 furlongs longer , should see him in an even better light .

1/4pt  win Have Secret @ 9/4


4.55 Mount Kosciuszko, the highest mountain in Australia , and the horse is also at its peak , , coming here on the back of 3 fine wins and did nothing wrong at all last time when a close  and determined 3rd at Newmarket , off this mark , and as he’s ground independent , and the opposition not strong , looks a very solid fav .

3/4pt win Mount Kosciuszko @ 2/1

5.30 The relatively short priced fav is the recent Newbury close 2nd Ascending, doing so very well to overcome a shocking wide draw, and unluckily has suffered the same fate today . He handles soft ground but 2/1 too short for me . Strawman is rarely far away and as long as the ground doesn’t deteriorate , likely to be bang there again . Mark workable and best trip .

Selected Sedgefield – good to soft on this undulating and sharp track .


2.50 After a barren time , Minella Voucher has seriously turned the corner, coming here on a 4 timer , and has no penalty for his last win . Proven at trip, track and ground .

1/2pt win  Minella Voucher @ 7/4

3.25 The front running Tico Times, 3 wins in his last 5 , is up against opposition all with it to prove and another win looks on .

1/2pt win Tico Times @ 5/4

4.30 Worth a try on the consistent and well treated Spartik , who has on his CV a close 2nd over C&D off a slightly higher mark .

Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack


7.00 Lir Speciale has a bit to prove , up in the ratings, in trip , switching from tapeta and also not well drawn and similar reservations with recent Wolver 2nd Al Shibli , 3 pounds higher for his trouble and another with a shocking draw. Mitronsonfire certainly wins his share , 7 from 27 a very decent return and recently won at Newmarket off just a 2 pound lower mark . Well drawn , in 2 runs here is a win and a place, is 1 from 1 at this distance and on polytrack is a win and 2 places from 3 tries !

50pew Mitronsonfire @ 9/1

7.30 There was plenty of money for First Folio last time out as this useful sprinter was down in the ratings and grade . He’s one of a handful who have a good chance on the ratings , but is one of the few front runners , and worth chancing first time on polytrack as his rivals could be coming here in more convincing form .

1/4pt win First Folio @ 7/2

8.00 The luckless if admirably consistent Fort Madox Brown , placed in his last 6 runs , all on polytrack , and remains on a similar mark, but has never cut the mustard here , 3 unplaced runs in 3 tries. The lightly raced Double Time was a close 2nd here last time and the extra furlong very much in his favour . Up a pound and draw could have been kinder , but this won’t take much winning .

1/2pt win Double Time @ 7/2

8.30 An uncompetitive finale and recent shock C&d winner You Are My world , beat some useful yardsticks and from a good draw and just 2 pounds higher, this prominent racer has very decent claims of landing a double.

1/2pt win You Are My world @ 9/2
