3.20 PREMIUM RACE
3.55 A highly competitive Class 2 handicap chase but the consistent fav Light N Strike would do very well defying a hefty 8 pound hit stepping up markedly in company . A strong pace is assured with at least a trio of front runners and this makes the prolific Return Ticket of interest as he stays further and despite a 3 pound penalty , did well to win on ground soft enough and he makes 536 mile round trip , and shouldn’t be far away .

Selected Curragh – good ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
2.20 This Listed Race looks very much a match between Buckaroo , who could find the trip too sharp and Dr Zempf , a winner on his comeback spin here giving optimism that the extra furlong would be in his favour .
½ pt win Dr Zempf @ 5/2
4.05 I was massively disappointed with the ride given to the ex-English trained Gear Up , who was the likely front runner , but was held up in a dawdle ,then powered home to be a close 4th behind Lafayette , Bear Story and the disappointing High Definition . He wont be leading this field up but with a stronger pace expected , could set the record straight .
¼ pt win Gear Up @ 7/1
Selected Bath – firm ground on this sharp , undulating yet stiff circuit .
3.41 Gargle was only beaten 2 lengths by Mucuna at Salisbury at this trip and ground and with a 4 pound pull , over this similar track , is preferred .
¼ pt win Gargle @ 7/2
Selected Beverley – good ground on this stiff and galloping track
2.06 The short priced fav is the Southern raider in Desert Team on a very good mark after her easy all the way win at Wolver , but her only run on turf last season was only modest so preference is for the C&d winner , the well drawn and late playing May Blossom , who will have an ideal strong pace to sit off and Danny Tudhope’s back in the saddle, who’s ridden her to both wins .
¼ pt win May Blossom @ 5/1
3.51 PREMIUM RACE
5.01 Cavendish was strong In the market in his recent handicap debut at Salisbury at this trip , and led them a merry old dance until waving the white flag late on , but was only beaten 2 lengths , and with that run under his belt and in what looks a lesser heat , should repay losses .
½ pt win Cavendish @ 5/2
No advice from Down Royal
Selected Windsor – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
4.01 Despite a 4 pound hit , short priced fav Excel Power looks good for the double against unconvincing rivals after his smart win at Haydock on similar ground and trip .
½ pt win Excel Power @ 6/5
Selected Warwick – good ground on this flat and sharp track
3.35 Heronford stepped up on previous with a good 2nd at Ffos Las and with his rivals now on very stiff marks , could well lie in wait and pounce .
½ pt win Heronford @ 5/1
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
5.50 There was very little between Starlyte , Jersey Lady and Alchemystique at this trip at Southwell on good ground , and as the first two mentioned have gone on to run well since , the tip should come out top with a juicy weight pull .
¼ pt ew Alchemystique @ 10/1
