Juniper a ” Berry” good bet in the 5.20

Today’s trixie

£1 trixie & £1 treble

The Navigator 2.10 @ 7/4

Hurricane Dylan 3.50 @ 9/4

Juniper 5.20 @ 2/1

Selected Sedgefield – good ground on this undulating and sharp track

1.40 Costly Diamond is 3 from 4 over C&D which counts for plenty , but the handicapper appears to have caught up with this front runner . The ultra reliable Armattiekan could struggle around this tight C&D dropping in trip while both Ar Mest and Lucky Robin and looking increasingly difficult to win with , First Revolution returns from a 5 months break with the ground in his favour , but goes well fresh and has a good recent 2nd off this mark behind a subsequent winner off a much higher mark . Worth  a dabble .

¼ pt  win First Revolution @ 5/1

2.10 There is a stack of early pace which wont help the cause of the free going Spiritofthenorth , who is now on a very stiff mark , and besides other front runners in contention , drying ground no help . This looks a match , but the reliable Enlighten has been harshly pushed up another 4 pounds for a decent 2nd and everything is pointing towards the back to form late playing dual C&D winner The Navigator , up 6 pounds , but still workable on old form , and will relish the ground .

1/2pt  win The Navigator @ 2/1

2.45 This looks very much a match but Nietzche has been going well in tougher races and should have the measure of the back to form and well handicapped Frimeur De Lancray .

½ pt win Nietzche @ 2/1

3.50 This will take little winning and despite a 2 pound nudge for a good 2nd , Hurricane Dylan has the ground and C&D in his favour and really should be landing this well .

½ pt  win Hurricane Dylan @ 2/1

Selected Epsom – good ground on this undulating , sharp and tricky track

1.50 The first race of a new season along the World’s fastest 5 furlongs , and there’ll be no hanging around with all of Ornate, Just That Lord and Recon Missioon all sure to bomb off , but unlikely to stay there . Nod goes to the consistent Electric Love ,a close 3rd at Lingfield off this mark and trip in his last outing on quick turf and returning from a break shouldn’t be an issue .

¼ pt win Electric Love @4/1

2.55 The prominent racing Arenas Del Tiempo goes very well here but is now on a stiff looking mark, but has been handling it well on the all weather , so despite likely unwanted company up front , gets the nod in a race with few contenders .

¼ pt  win Arenas Del Tiempo @ 3/1

3.30 Parachute landed a double last year at this trip , and then generally held his form well off a subsequent much higher mark .He goes well fresh , there are few contenders in this but he tries this kind of tricky track for the first time and the trainer doesn’t do well here !! Still tempted .

¼ pt  win Parachute @ 4/1

Selected Yarmouth – good to firm on this flat and galloping track


3.40 Recent winner Mawkeb has more on his plate, up in the ratings, grade and trip and switching from synthetics , and similar reservations regarding Robert Walpole .King francis is very hard to assess as on his first start for Michael Bell, this lightly raced type , was well backed to win at ease at Kempton over further, but given that he rarely sees the racetrack, fast turf must be a concern . The City’s Phantom won this last year just getting the better of Oh It’s Saucepot, who has a clear pull in the weights, and that wasn’t the first time she’s run well here , 2 wins  , 3 places from 6 tries !

¼ pt  ew  Oh It’s Saucepot @ 7/1

Selected Worcester – good ground on this flat and galloping track

4.50 This will take little winning and as he won here off this mark and ground and trip over hurdles , Give Us a swig has showed enough over fences to land this .

¼ pt   win Give Us A Swig @ 5/1

5.20 Juniper made all for an easy win at Warwick at around this trip and ground , and the 3 pound hit looks most generous. Poniente has been stuck up a very harsh stone and better ground very much against him . Looks good for the selection .

¾ pt  win Juniper @ 2/1

7.50 Philip Hobbs does very well here and Dan’s Chosen hasn’t had many chances and hinted last time the extra yardage would help . Pottlerath finally landed a deserved win after 28 tries ! last time and not out of this with just a 4 pound hit . The consistent Wetandwindy is also hard to exclude .

¼ pt  win Dan’s Chosen @ 6/1

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

5.00 A clear chance can be given to a god half dozen on these modest types but Boy George is rarely far away , including over C&D , and looks a sensible ew play .

¼ pt  ew Boy George @ 7/1

5.35 A similar race and the drop in grade will help the consistent track regular Amazing Amaya, but this hold up type is hard to win with, especially over 6 furlongs . Dual C&D winner Astrophysics ran well here last time and previously was just behind Amazing Amaya at 5 furlongs , today’s trip makes him a nice play , despite his poor win record .

¼ pt  ew  Astrophysics @ 9/1

6.05 After landing a double last season , Tribal Art went into his shell , ending with two very poor efforts , so can only be watched on tapeta for the first time and up to this longer trip. This looks a match between a pair of prolific and reliable stayers in Haveyoumissedme and Pearl Beach , who both resume duties after a break , but the latter has a terrific record on this surface , trip , and worth a dabble despite starting on a stiff mark .

¼ pt  win Pearl Beach @3/1
