Brief to make short work of these in the 3.40

Today’s multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Brief Times 3.40 @ 9/4

Schiehallion Munro 3.30 @ 6/1

Malakhana 3.50 @ 5/1

Selected Newmarket – probably good to soft on this undulating , stiff and galloping track

2.40 The Irish raider  Matilde Picotte brings just about the best form to the table and has been going well against some hot company . C&D and ground both fine .

1/4pt win Matilde Picotte @ 3/1

3.15 The in form and reliable Bad Company is a very tough and determined front runner . He’s now a bit high in the weights but both the C&D and ground in his favour , and another honest effort likely .

1/4pt  ew  Bad Company @ 7/1

3.50 It was stamina which won the day for the lightly raced Malakhana at Ascot at this trip and the 3 pound hit could have been far worse . Acts on  the ground and a stiff C&D suits.

1/2pt win Malakhana @ 5/1

Selected Wetherby – good to soft on this flat and galloping track

Just the one play sorry

3.30 In a light season  last year ,Schiehallion Munro came out with 2 wins over C&D , on different ground , before finding the Cheltenham mud against hi, but again ran very well for a long way . He ran very well on his comeback spin last year , taking a late fall when very likely to be involved and is just 2 pounds higher than his last win . Drying ground not in the favour of the useful yet luckless Coconut Splash, stiff mark for 4 timer seeker Into Overdrive , likely to find this C&D all too sharp while flic Ou Voyage did it well last time but the 2nd horse did nothing for the form next time .

1/2pt win Schiehallion Munro @ 6/1

Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this undulating and sharp track with a long galloping straight

2.30 Agent Saonois is a reliable low grade handicapper and won here last year over hurdles off just a 3 pound lower mark and has acquitted himself well in both chase runs , giving him place claims at least at good odds .

1/4pt  ew  Agent Saonois @ 12/1


3.40 Only one of these has experience over fences , and good experience it is as the consistent Brief Times pushed the prolific Geronimo hard on his debut over the larger obstacles at Warwick , a stiff jumping test for novices , as this is . His experience gives him a vital edge as does the ground and the trip .

3/4pt win Brief Times @ 9/4

Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta

4.40 Decision time whether it’s worth a play on the clear form horse in Easy Equation , a close 2nd at Wolver last time off this mark and trip, and the winner went in at Chelmsford City last night in the face of a stiff looking task . His previous runs were also good efforts , but is 0 from 21 , but with a good jockey aboard in this race for apprentices , just worth a dabble .

1/4pt win Easy Equation @ 11/4

5.15 Cool Lightning was all the rage on his debut at Newcastle , but was just a good 2nd and up against some right professional losers , should go one better , but is odds on .

No Bet


7.45 An open handicap but as usual Night Bear will run his race . He comes here on a hat-trick and just 2 pounds higher for his latest win , which came here . In an ideal world there would be less competition for the lead as he’s at his best racing prominently , but another good effort expected .

1/4pt  ew  Night Bear @ 11/1

8.15 International Law has responded well to the slight ease in the ratings coming here on the back of 3 good placed efforts and the return to this longer trip will see him in  stronger light .

1/4pt  ew International Law @ 12/1

Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack


7.00  After 3 close calls on turf , in big field , Ransom was tried over C&D last time , and again ran his race finishing a close 4th off this mark , and despite a wide draw, another good run likely .

1/4pt  ew  Ransom @ 13/2

7.30 The clear form horse is Tawaazon , but this mark is now high enough and the trip most probably far enough . Eastern Racer goes well here and can be relied upon to run his race.

1/4pt  ew Eastern Racer @ 13/2

8.00 War Hero continues to tumble in the ratings , and it’s only a matter of time before one of these just drops right for him . He was noted running on well last time and this further ease could see him a lot closer .

1/4pt  ew War Hero @ 7/1

8.30 A good quality handicap and the short priced fav is recent C&d 2nd Amorentia , but as he was beaten by a 50/1 shot , and gone up 3 pounds , certainly looks short enough . Alaroos holds his form very well and comes here on the back of a good win over C&D . 5 pounds higher but entitled to improve , and has never missed the frame either here or at this trip !

1/2pt  ew  Alaroos @ 7/1
