Today’s multi – 2 from 3 yesterday at 7/2 & 11/2
3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Shantou Moon 1.30 @ 10/3
Satin Snake 6.00 @ 4/1
Olympic Quest 7.00 @ 4/1
Selected Ayr – probably good to soft on this flat and galloping track
1.30 Shantou Moon responded very well to racing on better ground and stepping up in trip with an easy win at Kelso , and the 6 pound hit should keep this youngster competitive .
1/2pt win Shantou Moon @ 7/2
2.00 Misscarlet is a bit in and out but comes here on the back of a good 2nd at Musselburgh behind a prolific one , and can race off a 4 pound lower mark today . Ground more in her favour than most .
1/4pt ew Misscarlet @ 9/1
2.35 Euchan Falls notched a deserved win at Musselburgh last time , but the penalty and drying ground are n help in his double bid. The late playing Zwicky won very nicely at Sedgefield last time out , enjoying the better ground , and just a 4 pound hit keeps him competitive in a winnable heat .
1/2pt win Zwicky @ 6/1
3.10 As most of these are far more potent on softer ground , a good opportunity for the well handicapped Without Conviction to get back in the Winners’ Circle after a good 4th over C&D last time on similar ground .
1/2pt win Without Conviction @ 3/1
3.45 Thistle Act brings the best form to the table which was achieved on similar ground over C&D and gets the nod .
1/4pt win Thistle Act @ 2/1
4.55 As Netywell prefers softer ground , looks a match between Irish raider Champ De Gane and the very consistent Out On The Tear , the tip getting the nod after a respectable 2nd over C&D last time on similar ground behind one who has defied a penalty since .
1/4pt win Champ De Gane @ 15/8
Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
1.40 In a weak low grade handicap , the nicely drawn Toplight should be away and gone .
2.45 Think Champagne is 2 pounds higher for his recent good 2nd over C&D , which looks good enough in a weak heat .
1/4pt double Toplight @ 6/4 Think Champagne @ 5/4- Pays 9/2+
3.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Exeter – probably good ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
2.25 Casper’s Court would do very well to double up with a penalty and preference is for West Orchard still in contention last time until running out late on . Better behaviour sees him home .
1/4pt win West Orchard @ 11/4
3.00 PREMIUM RACE
3.35 PREMIUM RACE
4.10 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack
4.45 Pub Talk has been holding his own in handicap company and should be too good now dropped into a claimer .
1/2pt win Pub Talk @ 10/11
5.15 There was very little between Indiana Grey and Storm Eric over C&D last time , and both have been nudged up the rating . Storm Eric hasn’t had many races and handled a wide draw well last time and looks a juicy ew play . The fav is the consistent yet very hard to win with Scarlet Dancer , just 1 win in 23 !
1/2pt ew Storm Eric @ 7/1
5.45 With the in form runners now on stiff marks or with stamina to prove , the late playing Oranmore has form good enough over this C&D to make an impact .
1/4pt win Oranmore @ 5/1
6.15 The once useful Bowerman , a Group winner in his prime , is not the horse he was but comes here on the back of two big runs, the most recent over C&D , and despite a nasty 3pound nudge , is still the one to beat .
1/4pt win Bowerman @ 9/4
7.15 Some useful types compete here including last year’s winner San Andreas , who’s rated a lofty 104 , but a few of his rivals are rated close to that mark . That victory was his last win, 13 races ago , and has been a worrying 2nd 7 times since and is partnered by an inexperienced 7 pound claimer .
8.15 Hero Of The Hour has defied a high draw in big fields the last twice and just 3 pounds higher tonight , so every chance of the hat-trick .
1/4pt win Hero Of The Hour @ 4/1
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
6.00 Satin Snake has progressed really well and after running a blinder at Newcastle last time , returns to the scene of his last 3 victories. This prominent racer does drop in trip and has a wide draw to worry about but not a great deal of early pace about and if he could lead would take some reeling in . Jupiter Express is in top form and this late player has clear claims again .
1/2pt win Satin Snake @ 4/1
7.00 Olympic Quest put in a big run over C&D last time , just being chinned on the line , in a far deeper race than this and up just a pound , looks something to be on . The ex- Irish High Court Judge came from a long way back to share the spoils at Chelmsford City , but more on his plate with a 4 pound hit .
1/2pt win Olympic Quest @ 4/1
7.30 Not a deep race and the well drawn Phoenix Glow can double up with just a 3 pound hit .
1/4pt win Phoenix Glow @ 7/2
8.00 The very capable Sword Beach has dropped to a very good mark and this late player has a great race make up as this is very likely to be raced at a strong pace with plenty of prominent racers, and the tip comes here on the back of a close 4th over C&D.
1/4pt ew Sword Beach @ 14/1
