3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Edison Kent 4.55 @ 5/2
Boom The Groom 5.15 @ 11/2
Flavius Titus 7.00 @ 10/3
Selected Leicester – probably good ground on this stiff and galloping track
1.37 The prominent racing Marie’s Secret is rarely far away ,including a close 4th over C&D in higher grade .
1/4pt win Marie’s Secret
2.12 The late playing Anonymous Guest was a close 3rd over C&D recently , and off 4 pounds lower , is likely to get involved late on .
1/4pt ew Anonymous Guest @ 9/1
3.22 PREMIUM RACE
4.57 A very open handicap sprint but the late playing Four Adday remains on a winning mark , hasn’t been far away of late and has decent form over C&D .
1/4pt ew Four Adday @ 14/1
4.32 Box To Box is a talented and determined prominent racer and could be up to defying the 3 pound hit in this open event .
1/4pt win Box To Box @ 11/2
5.07 It’s hard getting excited about the prospects of most of these . Marsh Benham landed a double earlier in the season and recent efforts quite encouraging .
¼pt ew Marsh Benham @ 8/1
5.40 An open finale but we can expect another good run by the consistent Media Guest , who was a good 2nd over C&D off this mark recently .
1/4pt ew Media Guest @ 9/1
Selected Brighton – good to firm on this undulating , sharp and tricky track
1.45 A modest nursery and it could be the consistent Birkie Girl’s day , as crucially she’s run well here before .
1/4pt win Birkie Girl @ 9/2
2.55 The quick ground won’t help the back to form Broad Appeal , and at the ratings , dual C&D winner Cloudy Rose gets the nod over another proven over C&D in Control .
1/4pt win Cloudy Rose @ 10/3
4.40 PREMIUM RACE
5.15 The veteran Boom The Groom is nothing like the top sprint handicapper he was 7 years ago, winning off marks in excess of 100 , but is still enjoying his racing at a reduced level and this front runner is a C&D winner . He comes here in fine form and is taken to make every post a wining post . The fav is recent C&d winner Cuban Grey , but that win came on soft ground and off a five pound lower mark .
1/2pt win Boom The Groom @ 11/2
Selected Huntingdon – good ground on this flat and galloping track
3.10 PREMIUM RACE
3.45 PREMIUM RACE
4.55 Edison Kent comes here on the back of two good seconds at this trip, Nudged up the ratings but a useful 7 pound claimer takes over .
1/2pt win Edison Kent @ 5/2
5.30 Top flat trainer runs Topkapi , who runs in the colours of Epsom Derby winner from the early 70’s in Mill Reef . With sean Bowen aboard has to be worth a dabble .
Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta
4.15 The big drop in the ratings has understandably seen improved runs from Meng Tian of late and comes here on the back of a solid 3rd of 12 over C&D last time in higher grade . Down again the ratings and this won’t take much winning .
1/4pt win Meng Tian @ 7/2
4.50 & 5.25
Both races has some incredibly well bred and expensive newcomers racing in famous colours . These are very much above average maidens , especially for this track and are must watch races . Likely to be plenty of winners coming from these contests.
6.30 Club Manager was an easy winner at this trip in the Nottingham mud , but the 6 pound hit will surely test and is 0 places from 2 runs on tapeta. Papa Rico finished strongly to land a lesser event here last time over a bit shorter but still has claims in an uncompetitive heat . The nod goes to the consistent down in ratings and grade Wannabe Grand , who handles this surface well .
1/4pt win Wannabe Grand @ 4/1
7.00 Well gone are the days when Fluvius Titus was winning handicaps for the top stable of Roger Varian in the mid 90’s , but he is certainly enjoying his racing and brings strong form to this event . A good 2nd over C&D has been followed by two good placed efforts on turf. Not a big ask.
1/2pt win Fluvius Titus @ 10/3
7.30 After landing a classified at Redcar at this trip, doing very well to win at the terms , Barolo has run creditably off her new mark and was beaten just over a length at Newcastle last time , and this more benign track will suit .
1/4pt ew Barolo @ 16/1
8.30 Blue Hawaii is rated 108 over hurdles , which is around 75 on the flat , and may well to be worth a play in a winnable looking finale . He went close over C&D earlier in the season and backed that up with a win in the Nottingham mud . This is only his 3rd race on the flat at middle distance or further and despite returning from a 4 months break , does have a good record running fresh .
1/4pt ew Blue Hawaii @ 12/1
