She’s My(ristica) best bet in the 4.10

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Tactical Control 1.50 @ 9/2

Indiana Be 3.00 @ 9/2

Myristica 4.10 @ 11/4

 Selected Windsor – good ground on this flat and galloping track – speed track

1.50 Tactical Control went down narrowly at Bath in a recent nursery at this trip and down a pound is preferred to Continuance , solid form in maidens , proven at the trip and on a fair mark in his first nursery and the disappointing Bjorn Ironside , who cost £300,000 as a yearling runs in famous colours for a top stable , already gelded and has an opening mark of just 67 , which could be high enough on what we’ve seen so far .

1/4pt win Tactical Control @ 9/2

3.20 The tough and reliable Cabinet Of Clowns will make a bold bid from the front , but a bit high in the ratings now and preference is for the late playing C&D winner Dream Of Mischief , a close 3rd off around this mark last time at Lingfield from the worst of the draw.

1/4pt  win Dream Of Mischief @ 4/1


4.52  Not a deep race and worth a try on Snowy going up in trip after some good efforts of late off around this mark , giving the impression this trip would suit .

1/4pt win Snowy @ 4/1

Selected Ponty – good to soft on this undulating , very stiff and galloping track

2.30 Havana Rose is nicely handicapped on her win at Carlisle and was never going to be suited to Redcar last time , dropping in trip and carrying the dreaded penalty . Nicely drawn and could be the solution .

1/4pt  ew Havana Rose @ 8/1

3.00 The front running Indiana Be made a right fist of it last time over C&D , just beaten 2 lengths , from a bad draw . Much better berthed today and could take some catching .

1/4pt  win Indiana Be

4.00 Do I Dream is badly drawn and the stable having a sticky patch , but has dropped to a good mark , has run creditably of late and is a dual C&D winner and will welcome the ground . Has to be the play at such long odds .

1/4pt  ew Dare To Dream @ 25/1

Selected Stratford – good ground on this flat and sharp track

2.05 Maroochi comes into this with the best recent form , a running on 3rd at Worcester behind a pair of very much in form types and should have the strong pace to sit off and pounce late .

1/4pt  win Maroochi @ 13/2

3.40 The clear form horse is the consistent Time To Bite , who consistent form includes a close 2nd over C&D off around this mark . He’s been off the track for a year , which is always a worry , but the best time to catch long time absentees is first time back .

1/4pt  win Time To Bite @ /1

4.10 A modest looking handicap and a fine chance for the prolific and ultra consistent Myristica to notch another win . Mark is fine , as is this kind of trip and the slightly longer trip in her favour .

1/2pt  win Myristica @ 11/4

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta

4.25 The clear form horse is 3 wins in the last 4 races Uncle Dick , but has been well placed to win this Ok events and questions to be answered up in trip and up 6 pounds , but is proven on the surface and this isn’t competitive . After a C&D win , Marmara Star was next time out narrowly beaten , again over C&D and off this mark . If ready to go  6 months off , has clear claims .

1/4pt win Marmara Star @ 11/2

5.00 Luna Magic is a low grade handicapper who owes connections nothing , 10 wins from 70 starts a good return . She comes here on the back of a narrow defeat at Salisbury on easy ground off around this mark . She’s effective over C&D and in another race for amateur riders , regular rider Brodie Hampson takes the reins , winning aboard the tip 8 times !

1/4pt win Luna Magic @ 10/1

6.30 An uncompetitive low grade handicap and a deserved win may come the way of the luckless Mellow Mood , in the first 3 in 5 of her 6 races this season , one of those a narrow defeat here.

1/4pt win Mellow Mood @ 7/2

7.00 I narrow this down to recent C&D 2nd Chase The Dollar , the consistent Genesius and the tenacious Bulldog Spirit , who gets the nod after some big runs of late off slightly higher marks , and is 1 from 1 on tapeta.

1/4pt win Bulldog Spirit @ 5/1

7.30 The consistent Murbih is handicapped to land this and nail a 3rd course win .

1/2pt  win Murbih @ 7/2

8.00 Yet another uncompetitive low grade handicap and despite a wide draw , the very consistent Bernie The Bear comes here on the back of a good 2nd at Newcastle off this mark , and overall form good enough to land this .

1/2pt  win Bernie The Bear @ 3/1

8.30 Yet another low grade handicap there for the taking and the consistent Liberty Breeze remains on a workable mark and surface no issue .

1/4pt  win Liberty Breeze @ 5/1
