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
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
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
5.10 PREMIUM RACE
5.40 PREMIUM RACE
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
