Tom Tulliver to put them through the mill.

My laptop broke down at the weekend and currently I’m using a borrowed one and not able to access my emails or Twitter . If you’ve been trying to contact me , I’m not ignoring you , and hopefully in a few days all will be back to normal. John

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Anjo Bonita 2.15 @ 5/2

Haven Lady 5.30 @ 10/3

Tom Tulliver 7.30 @ 7/2

Selected Fontwell – very soft ground on this sharp track

3.00 Yesnosorry handled the soft ground very well when a good 2nd in a competitive soft ground handicap at Plumpton. She’s assured of handling the soft ground , something her rivals aren’t and this longer trip likely to suit . 4 pounds higher but still preferred .

1/4pt win Yesnosorry @ 7/2

3.30 Monjules is 3 from 4 since joining Harry Fry , and two of those wins have come over C&D , most recently in the mud and despite being 6 pounds higher , has been winning with authority and looks good for another win against rivals hard to fancy .

1/2pt win Monjules @ evens

Selected Thirsk – soft ground on this flat and sharp track

2.15 After ending the season with 3 successive seconds , Anjo Bonita deserves a win and as she’s proven on the ground , track and trip and went well first time out , is preferred to the short priced fav Liberalist , who may find this speed track against her .

1/4pt win Anjo Bonita @ 5/2



5.45 Zoom Star doesn’t see the racetrack very often , so a strong question mark about her hardiness but her last two wins have come on soft ground at around this mark . Her comeback spin was poor but as the key variable here today is the soft ground , she’s one of the very few in the field guaranteed to go through it .

1/4pt win Zoom Star @ 7/1

Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta

5.30 As Habanero Star is 5 pounds higher for pinching a race from the front over C&D last time , and unlikely to double up and Defence Treaty couldn’t handle his new mark last time , the reliable Haven Lady , holds her form very well since being upped in the ratings and was unlucky to go down narrowly at Wolver at this trip, pipped by an out of form one who was the subject of a winning gamble . Tactically versatile and in a race for apprentices will be well handled by Ryan Sexton .

1/2pt win Haven Lady @ 10/3

6.00 After an impressive debut , Zoology was considered good enough to try the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes , but was well beaten . Stamina isn’t assured at this trip and has a strong rival in Elwasme , who runs in The Derby winning colours but I prefer a dabble on the Gosdens’ newcomer in Covey , whose bred to do well, races in the Frankel colours and the stable does well with runners wearing a hood for the first time .

1/4pt win Covey @ 4/1

6.30 All In the Hips won well at Wolver at this trip a few starts ago and in a race where it’s hard fancying many , could go in again off this 3 pound higher mark .

1/4pt win All In The Hips @ 10/3

7.00 The drop in trip could catch out The Godolphin filly Mountain Song , despite her looking favourably rated in her first handicap. The lightly raced Dayzee goes for the hat-trick , but is another who could find the trip on the short side . Young And Fun , ended last season very well , is on a fair mark in her first handicap and runs for a top stable .

1/4pt  ew  Young And Fun @ 11/1

7.30 Hats off to Tom Tulliver , 2 wins and 2 seconds in his last 4 , all at this track , and after some big runs in Classified races , showed he was not handicapped out of things which a closing 2nd over C&D last time , off what looked to be a mark plenty high enough , but obviously is not . Recent C&d winner Cavalluccio would do well doubling up with a 5 pound hit as he only just got the better of the consistent yet very hard to win with How Bizarre , whose last win was coming up to 3 years ago, Smart chance for Tom .

1/2pt win Tom Tulliver @ 7/2

8.00 There was money at long odds for the lightly raced Exceed on his handicap debut at Newcastle , finishing behind today’s fav Urban Dandy, but the tip encountered some traffic problems in that race , and with a big weight pull, worth an ew dabble .

1/4pt  ew  Exceed @ 8/1

8.30 One More Dream could struggle now on a stiff enough mark and going up in trip. The late playing Perfect Swiss has become hard to win with, but in a modest finale is capable of pouncing late to land the spoils .

1/4pt win Perfect Swiss @ 4/1
