Toy set to play with the opposition in the 2.40

Today’s Multi – 50p ew Trixie & 50p ew treble

Goose Rock 12.55 @ 15/2

Tinker Toy 2.40 @ 4/1

 You’re Cool 8.00 @ 7/1

Selected Wolver- all weather – tapeta

12.55 The drop back to the minimum trip worked the Oracle for Goose Rock , finally shedding his maiden tag , coming strongly off the pace to win  at Lingfield , and as he’s proven on the surface and just a pound higher , most solid claims of landing the double. His draw is OK and a strong pace assured which will suit his strong finish .

1/2pt  ew Goose Rock @ 15/2

2.05 A valuable Lincoln Trial and and a couple come here in the very best of form . Hats off to the front running War In Heaven , who’s won his last 4 , all coming here , but the slight drop in trip. A further nudge up the ratings and other front runners in the field, present him with a tough task . Unforgotten has returned from a lengthy absence with 2 wins both at Lingfield, both times looking well in control and much respected up just 4 pounds and proven on the surface . Tacarib Bay is a consistent and very useful handicapper , hitting the frame in some good races last year , including a 3rd of 20 at Royal Ascot , off this mark . Draw could have been kinder and new to the surface , but in a race full of early pace , which will suit his style of racing , his odds are an insult to his ability . Alrehb won well here last time and is certainly another to consider .

1/2pt  ew Tacarib Bay @ 25/1

2.40 Not a deep valuable Class 1 and a fine chance for last year’s winner Tinker Toy to double up . Nicely drawn  and when successful last year was given a prominent ride and saw it out really well . He’s been running pretty well over a trip short enough , suggesting those runs have been preparing for the big stage .

3/4pt win Tinker Toy @ 4/1

4.25 A Class 2 event for stayers and on official ratings Roberto Escobarr has a few pounds in hand over Calling The Wind and Earlofthecotswolds , but this is just his 3 race in 18 months , so not an attractive prospect for a short priced fav and as Calling The Wind hasn’t been pulling up any trees of late , and this trip is a minimum for this stout stayer , worthy trying the tip , who showed a bit more like it last time .

1/4pt win Earlofthecotswolds @ 11/2

5.00 There’s not a great deal of early pace in this which will help the consistent front running Aurophobia ( the fear of Gold ? ) . Effective on  the surface and is on a workable mark .

1/4pt  ew Aurophobia @ 9/1

Selected Sandown – heavy ground on this stiff and galloping track

1.15 Penna Rossa caused a shock over C&D last time , when making all and having plenty left for the final push . That run came on soft ground , so looks a good play at the odds .

1/4pt win  Penna Rossa @ 9/1

Selected Ayr – good ground on this flat and galloping track

1.35 This will take little winning and the consistent Barnabas Collanges ran well to be a close 3rd at Bangor last time off this mark and taken to handle slightly faster ground . Prominent racer

1/2pt win  Barnabas Collanges @ 10/3

2.10 Another race which will take little winning and a fine opportunity for the consistent Headscarf Lil, who very much has the ground in her favour.

1/2pt win  Headscarf Lil @ 13/8

2.45 & 3.55

Only two go in both of these now and I prefer the 2nd fav in each .

1/4pt double Ardera Cross @ 6/4  Just Don’t Know @ 6/4 double pays 5/1 +

3.20 Another uncompetitive handicap and the in form C&D winner Ginger Mail has the ground in his favour and looks a solid fav .

1/2pt win Ginger Mail @ 7/4

Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack

6.30 Not many come into this in peak form , the exception being recent Lingfield winner Tiger Crusade and still on a good enough mark to double up.

1/4pt win Tiger Crusade @ 2/1

7.00 Plenty of early pace in this which should set things up nicely for the luckless of late Maysong .

1/4pt win Maysong @ 5/1

8.00 Veteran You’re Cool is running really well , and in a race lacking depth , can add to his 5 C&D wins .

1/2pt  ew You’re Cool @ 7/1

8.30 The late playing Beautiful Crown has run some good races of late and can take advantage of a rare pop in Class 6 .

1/4pt win Beautiful Crown @ 3/1
