Selected Goodwood – good to soft on this undulating , sharp and tricky track
1.20 The lightly raced Havana Blue did little wrong on his recent handicap debut when fav in a big field at Newmarket finishing an excellent 2nd . No issues with softer ground and despite a 2 nudge , should still be good enough .
1/2pt win Havana Blue @ 11/4
3.05 This has a winnable look and Farasi Lane holds his form well despite now being on a stiff enough mark and will like the ground more than most .
1/4pt win Farasi Lane @ 4/1
3.45 The consistent Tuddenham Green certainly bumped into one at Nottingham on soft ground in Coquilcot , a useful hurdler thrown in at the handicap and is preferred to useful hurdler Mark of Gold who has a bit to prove at this trip on the flat .
1/2pt win Tuddenham Green @ 7/2
4.20 A tricky sprint and worth sticking with the hat-trick seeking Umming N’ Ahing , 4 pounds higher , but has been winning well , well drawn and ground suits .
1/4pt win Umming N Ahing @ 11/2
5.00 Entrancement wasn’t beaten far on her comeback spin at this trip, mark and ground and should strip fitter today and is preferred to easy Bath winner johnjay , in his first handicap and run for Roger Teal , but up in trip, grade and the ratings .
1/4pt win Entrancement @ 5/1
Selected Thirsk – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
2.00 Maple Jack is looking ahead of the handicapper especially over this kind of C&D and soft ground , but short enough in the market and recent winner Bay Breeze , a soft ground specialist won’t be far away despite a 4 pound hit .
1/4pt ew Bay Breeze @ 15/2
2.35 Classic Puzzle was avtive in the market on her recent debut which came over C&D on soft ground and the well beaten 3rd horse brings plenty of substance to the form .
1/4pt win Classic Puzzle @ 3/1
3.40 The Thirsk Hunt Cup , and on soft ground looks there for the taking . Pisanello is rarely far away, remains on a workable mark, goes well fresh and runs the C&D well and on soft ground .
1/4pt ew Pisanello @ 6/1
4.55 Not a deep finale and the consistent Victoria Falls comes here on the back of a good 3rd in the Nottingham mud , offering ew claims.
1/4pt ew Victoria Falls @ 8/1
No Thirsk placepot
1.40 Well worth trying the consistent and determined Capital Theory , in a winnable looking heat , rarely far away and remains on a workable mark .
1/4pt win Capital Theory @ 7/1
2.15 The Master of nurturing fillies into top sprinters, Michael Dodds, runs both the C&D specialists in Azure Blue and Gale Force Maya. The tip had her stable companion behind when winning over C&D last season on similar ground and this late player is the New Kid on the Block in sprints .
1/4pt win Azure Blue @ 4/1
2.50 PREMIUM RACE
3.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.00 A Group 3 sprint and with so much early pace around , this looks destined for one of the late players . Despite the absence , the classy Twilight Calls gets the nod .
1/4pt win Twilight Calls @ 11/4
4.40 PREMIUM RACE
5.15 Washington Heights is rarely far away and will come on for his recent comeback spin . Well handicapped and a nice ew play .
1/4pt ew Washington Heights @ 9/1
5.50 Chartwell House comes here on the back of a cracking 3rd in a big field handicap over C&D , and off the same mark looks a cracking bet .
1/2pt ew Chartwell House @ 8/1
Selected Uttoxeter – good ground on this sharp, undulating track with a galloping straight
3.15 Most of these are having their first try over fences and I’m with the in form hurdler William Ewart , running well off this mark and trip and runs for a chase orientated yard .
1/2pt win William Ewart @ 9/2
3.50 Dear Ralphy looked hosed and home in his recent first handicap at this trip , until taking an unlucky late fall . 4 pounds higher and faces quicker ground , but hard finding serious contenders .
1/4pt win Dear Ralphy @ 7/2
4.25 PREMIUM RACE
5.05 The lightly raced and hat-trick seeking The Carpenter runs for a top yard and will be hard to beat ,but is a shade of odds on so the C&D specialist Ballybegg can give us a good run for our money on a fair mark .
1/4pt ew Ballybegg @ 8/1
5.40 An uncompetitive chase and the drop in trip should not be an issue for the in form and capable Fievel who is preferred to the poorly handicapped Duke Of Deception .
1/2pt win Fievel @ 11/4
6.15 Not a deep finale and a good opportunity for Boundy Boy to double up off just a 2 pound higher mark and has run well on the flat recently .
1/4pt win Boundy Boy @ 9/2
Selected Donny – soft ground on this flat and galloping track
5.20 The lightly raced Escarpment comes here on the back of a big run in a soft ground Newbury maiden at this trip , putting him on a very fair mark in his first handicap . Looks good enough .
1/2pt win Escarpment @ 11/4
5.55 Some very interesting newcomers but as the expensive Battah did well over C&D on soft ground on a recent debut , looks a tidy bet at the odds .
1/4pt win Battah @ 6/1
6.55 The prominent racing Aberama Gold has been in good form on the all weather and nothing to prove on a soft surface at this trip and on a good mark.
1/2pt win Aberama Gold @ 7/2
8.25 Deputy is an admirable sort who relishes soft ground and despite now being on a stiff enough mark , did very well last time to be a good 5th when uncharacteristically missing the break .
1/2pt win Deputy @ 5/2
Selected Hexham – good to soft on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
5.30 The in form Aazaa comes here on the back of a narrow defeat and despite a nudge up by 2 pounds, takes a drop in grade , is a winner here , ideal ground and in a race for conditionals is ridden by his usual jockey , who can claim 8 pounds . Cracking ew play .
1/2pt ew AAzaa @ 12/1
7.40 Ex S’ellence has been going very well of late , including a close 2nd over C&d last time , would prefer even softer ground but still a player .
1/4pt win Ex S’Ellance @ 5/1
8.10 After some poor runs , The Electrician bounced back to form with a fine win at Carlisle . The 5 pound hit still leaves him on a workable mark , has the ground in his favour and is a C&D winner .
1/4pt ew The Electrician @ 8/1
8.40 Applaus has finished in the first 2 in 4 of his last 5 races . He’s up 3 pounds but still likely to run a big race at big odds with the ground in the favour of this C&D winner .
1/2pt ew Applaus @ 20/1
