Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack

2.10 The lightly raced Lila Girl is 2 from 2 over C&D and the way she won last time , the 6 pound hit unlikely to stop her . A straight forward ride and another progressive sort for Amo Racing .

1/2pt double Lila Girl 8/11 Delboy Trotter 1.50 11/10 – double pays 5/2

2.45 G’Day would do very well to feature with a mammoth 9 pound penalty for an overdue win at Lingfield, but it did come in first time blinkers, so not entirely ruled out . Beauty Choice responded well to the drop in the ratings last time with a good 3rd at Newmarket and has good form on polytrack , off higher marks than today . Has the best of the draw and taken to beat another well handicapped runner effective on the surface in Ford Maddox Brown .

1/4pt  win Beauty Choice @ 6/1 1/4pt  rev fc Beauty Choice – Fort Maddox Brown

3.20 A valuable Class 1 for fillies and at the ratings , it looks a 3 horse war , but the useful Bounce The Blues is a soft ground specialist , likely to find it happening all too quickly around here . the recent all the way Newmarket winner Soft whisper has a few pounds cushion and despite a wide draw is the very likely pacesetter and will be very dangerous if allowed to set steady fractions but preference has to go to one of the most improved mares in training in Internationalangel , who joined Jane Chapple- Hyam in the Winter and rattled off a 5 timer , the first win coming off a lowly mark of 67 and she comes here on the back of another big run when 2nd at Longchamp , not for the first time running in advance of her mark of 103. She is 4 from 4 over C&D and Adam Kirby is 3 from 3 aboard !

1/2pt  win Internationalangel @ 2/1

3.55 A good quality sprint handicap but I’d rather just watch Tolstoy , returning from a 2 months absence and new to the surface . Crimson Sand is rarely far away and is just a pound higher for yet another big run over C&D 2 starts back when a close 2nd and Harry Davies and his 5 pound claim , offers sound opportunity for a deserved success.

1/2pt  win Crimson Sand @ 9/4

5.40 Some big stables are represented in the Closing maiden but Misty Dancer has to be of interest at longish odds as on her debut , which came over C&D, showed plenty of greenness and ability . Could be much wiser today .

Selected Ayr – good ground on this flat and galloping track

1,42 Refuge has bounced back to form with a double at Hamilton but the 5 pound hit will test as will the switch to a speed track , but in a race for amateur riders, will be very well handled by the in form Serena Brotherton . The pace to the race will certainly come from the down in trip Gullane One , but hard seeing him staying there , especially on a stiff enough mark . Sound Of Iona landed a double last season and the handicapper took a dim view of it and imposed a very stiff penalty , and has taken all this time to work down to a workable mark and comes here on the back of a much improved 2nd at Musselburgh behind a mildly progressive one . He’s a C&D winner and the young rider is 1 from 1 this season . Tanasoq is rarely far away and taken for the fc .

1/4pt win Sound Of Iona @ 4/1   1/4pt  rev fc sound Of Iona –  Tanasoq

Selected Market Rasen – good ground on this mostly flat and sharp track

1.50 Dellboy Trotter comes here on a C&D hat-trick but despite a massive 9 pound hit he’s been winning with ease, giving them a start and a beating and in a race for conditional jockeys , Kevin Brogan has ridden him the last twice .

3.00 An uncompetitive heat and Casamari Abbey comes here on the back of a cracking first effort over fences when a good 2nd at Cartmel in a good contest and is 7 pounds lower today. Previously he was a good 4th over hurdles and looks a very solid fav .

1/2pt win Casamari Abbey @ 7/4

4.45 The short priced fav is the Nicky Henderson trained Broomfield Burg and when last seen , 3 months ago ran just a fair race in a big field at Aintree . He has yet to win a handicap and still unproven at this trip. Ask Paddngton has responded very well to the big drop in the ratings and this C&D winner comes here on a hat-trick , winning both very well and the 5 pound hit looks well manageable for this late player who was very competitive off this mark last season . With 2 of the 4 runners known for front running , this wont be a dawdle and the hat-trick looks on .

1/2pt win Ask Paddington @ 9/4
