Today’s Fortune for a Fiver

50p ew trixie & 50p ew treble

Jelski 2.45 @ 9/1

Karakoram 12.50 @ 3/1

No say Ever 7.30 @ 12/1

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

12.30 East End Girl is quite a useful type on the flat and stepped up on just an OK debut over hurdles with a much improved effort at Huntingdon, a win which puts her on a very fair mark in her first handicap and this stayer should relish the extra yardage .

1/4pt win East End Girl @ 7/1

2.45 I was strong on the chanceof Jelski last time and he was travelling very sweetly when taking an unlucky fall  . He had previously put in two good runs in  his only other tries over fences and both the drop in trip and drying ground are in this late player’s favour as too is a return to an undulating sharp circuit . With both the back to form Baron de Middleton and the consistent Hidden Commander now on stiff marks , and with

a strong pace to suit this late player , could well surprise .

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

12.50 Not a deep race at all and despite being a few pounds high in the ratings , the consistent Karakoram can run these down late for a deserved success.

1/2pt win Karakoram @ 3/1

Selected Sandown – chase course going good, hurdles track soft . The course is stiff and galloping

1.45 The prominent racing Gloire d’Athon is 2 from 2 over fences for his new stable , and despite being 7 pounds higher for a smart win in a soft groundWorcester handicap , he looks progressive and has less to prove than his rivals.

1/4pt win  Gloire d’Athon @ 7/2

2.20 The bookies are very undecided about this and make the trio of very promising novice hurdlers in Henri The Second , Man At Work and Maximillian , making them co favs , but I’m with the tip, who impressed when picking up an odds on shot at Aintree , a runnder connections were expecting to be past the post.

1/4pt win Man At Work @ 2/1

2.55 Grand National wining trainer  Lucinda Russell brings the lightly raced and in form youngster Corrigeen Rock , on an 850 mile round trip , and is only 2 pounds for a smart win last time . He won’t have the lead to himself in a field full of early pace , but showed last time that he can dispute a strong gallop and have plenty left for the final push .

1/2pt win Corrigeen Rock @ 2/1

Selected Newcastle – all weather – tapeta . The track is stiff and galloping

3.03 A very open low grade handicap but at the odds happy to play recent C&D winner Mintnthat , who when successful was given a prominent ride but last time was way out the back , under an inexperienced jockey . Andrew Mullen is back in the saddle and off just a 3 pound higher mark , has ew claims .

1/4pt  ew Mintnthat @ 14/1

4.10 De Bruyne brings solid course form to the table with a good 3rd last time and the extra furlong expected to be in his favour and is preferred to Kempton 2nd Macho Mania , who has it to prove on tapeta .

1/4pt win De Bruyne @ 3/1

4.45 This has a very winnable look to it and despite a 3 pound hit for a fine win at Wolver , Documenting should be equally at home on this stiffer track.

1/2pt win Documenting @ 5/1

5.15 Bobby Joe Leg has quickly gone from zero to hero and comes here on a tapeta 4 timer and the way he’s been winning, could handle the 5 pound hit . A strong pace is assured with the in form duo of Walking The Clouds and Willing To Please both sure to go out hard ad the former ran very well off around this mark on his first run for Grant Tuer , but the strong pace will bring out the best of the consistent if luckless Mumcat , proven at the trip and and surface .

1/4pt  ew Mumcat @ 7/1

5.45 A quality Class 2 sprint , and on official ratings little between the once very useful but nowadays enigmatic Art Power and the in form Irish raider Logo Hunter , proven on polytrack but not on this surface . Tone The Barone is not far behind this pair and considering his excellent record on this surface , warrants plenty of consideration . Fine Wine is simply thriving and this prominent racer just keeps pulling out more and more . He has a terrific attitude and goes for his 6th win this year .

1/2pt ew Fine Wine @ 10/1



7.15 Huraiz’s mark has absolutely plummeted , but wasn’t showing any response , until last time when dropped in trip over C&D with a strong finishing 3rd in a much better race , and stays on the same mark . There’s plenty of early pace to suit his racing style and could land The Lucky Last .

1/4pt  ew Huraiz @ 7/1

Selected Dundalk – all weather – polytrack

Just concentrating upon the two main feature events, as the rest of the card typically Dundalk trappy .

6.00 No end of contenders in this quality handicap. The lightly raced Federal landed the 25 strong Irish Cambridgeshire at The Curragh, winning as he pleased , and obvious claims off just a 4 pound higher mark . Yerwanthere impressed when making a winning debut at Leopardstown and has since joined the top stable of Joseph O’Brien, and is well handicapped on that form . I’m trying the class dropper in Miss Mirabell , who’s been competing in Group and Listed races , so obviously she’s well thought of .

1/4pt  ew Miss Mirabell @ 16/1

7.30 Recently over C&D , the thriving Ceallach got the better of Dalvey with the front running No Say Ever close up behind and as the latter has a decent pull in the weights , was only beaten a length and a half and  with not a great deal of early  pace in the contest , could gain revenge .

1/2pt  ew No Say Ever @ 12/1
