Selected Salisbury – good to soft on this undulating , stiff and galloping track
3.44 A Class 2 for juveniles and this should be straight forward for the consistent and useful Bolt Action , proven at the trip , and comes here on the back of 3 good placed efforts in Class 1 . He sees his races out very well , which is more than can be said about Wallop , who’s form is pretty good , but today’s stiff C&D on easy ground likely to find him out late on .
3/4pt win Bolt Action @ 11/8

4.54 King Charles III has his first runner today , and wonderful he’s kept the familiar Royal Colours of his late mother . His runner is the lightly raced and hat-trick seeking Educator , who returns from 6 months off the track and on a 5 pound higher mark , which makes me lean towards the lightly raced but already useful Okeechobee , who’s front run his way to a couple of quality wins on the all weather , and well handicapped on those runs .
1/4pt win Okeechobee @ 2/1
5.30 Wilderness had been kept busy running over hurdles , with little impact , but the switch back to the flat , rolled back the years , with a long odds all the way win over C&D , and has since backed that up with another big run over C&D , when a good 3rd off this mark . Today’s softer ground is in his favour as too is the booking of the very able 7 pound claimer Taylor Fisher . Could have the lead to himself and take some catching .

Selected Warwick – good ground on this flat and sharp track
1.36 Call Me tara and Girlofmydreams are consistent fillies , who have crossed swords the last twice, each managing a win , but on today’s terms and at this trip , the tip gets the call. The dark horse is certainly bumper winner , but today’s test likely to be on the sharp side .
1/2pt win Call Me Tara @ 5/2
4.31 Progressive ran well last time from the front and remains a pound lower than his last winning mark . Could be hard to catch around this sharp track and is preferred to the short priced fav in Yvette Guilbert , who returns from a 9 months absence , not on a generous mark for her handicap debut and faster ground a further issue .
1/2pt win Progressive @ 2/1
Selected Lingfield – all weather polytrack
We happy sitting the first 5 races out , full of ifs buts and maybes and too much guesswork required , never the way to go
4.39 At last a race on the card with some horses coming it in decent form . proud Fairy defied long odds to win determinedly at Chelmsford City and the 4 pound hit is swallowed up by a good 3 pound claimer in the saddle, but as this longer trip looks far enough , preference is for the consistent Granary Queen , who could have been drawn better but ran Unsung Hero close at Kempton , and that one sluiced in last night under a penalty . Has won over this longer trip.
1/4pt win Granary Queen @ 3/1

Selected Chelmsford City – all weather – polytrack
6.30 Gone is closely related to couple of useful types , one potent on synthetics. She did well over C&D in a decent maiden , where all 3 who finished ahead of her have run well since . Better drawn today off what looks a workable mark . She’s been dropped 2 pounds for a lesser effort last time , but that was attributed to soft ground . Made Of Lir brings very solid nursery turf form to the table , and bred to be better on the all weather , but would do very well to get competitive from the worst of the draw.

7.00 Plenty of possibilities here but Bobby On the Beat , up In class and badly drawn , Dark design , on a stiff mark and drop in trip will test , Epic express , good winner over C&D last time dropping in trip, but the 5 pound hit has to test , Iur Cinn Tra, rarely far away , and this C&D winner is back on a winning mark , but badly drawn under a jockey short on confidence , the in form Musical Mystery can only be watched first ever run on synthetics while Thaki is regaining form following a break , but has failed to hit the frame in 5 tries here . Enduring took advantage of a good mark to win at Bath , and has run a couple of good races back on his preferred all weather surface . Still on a good mark , well drawn , a good 3 pound claimer rides and this front runner could get the run of the race up front . His polytrack record is 2 wins and 7 places from 19 tries, so high hopes for the frame , at least.

7.30 Griggy finally took advantage of a plummeting mark to win at Wolver at this trip and off just a 2 pound higher mark , has clear claims . He has a good record on polytrack , but not of late so could be more of a tapeta horse nowadays . Real Estate bounced back to form landing a recent double , one over C&D , and wasn’t far away at Lingfield off his new mark , a run that gives him solid claims ar surprisingly long odds .
1/4pt ew Real Estate @ 12/1
8.00 High Velocity is 4 from 5 on the all weather , and equally at home on tapeta as polytrack . The 4 pound hit could be manageable , but is badly drawn . Miss Nae Never remains on a workable mark and was a close 4th in this last year off a slightly higher mark . Very well drawn , and despite recent form being mixed , very capable on her day .
1/4pt ew Miss Nae Never @ 8/1
8.30 The admirably consistent Flyawaydream was caught close home over C&D last time , and more work to do up 2 pounds . Alooqal brings very solid polytrack form to the table but drawn 15 , is very unlikely to overcome that berth . The consistent Brunel Charm remains hard to win with and is better a furlong shorter . Be My Lucky son has been holding his form well on turf and this well drawn runner is a C&D winner and gets the call.
1/4pt win Be My lucky @ 4/1

Selected Wolver – all weather – tapeta
5.45 Hi Clare came into her latest race on the back of 3 runner up spots , but the fast ground and the warm company resulted in a much below par effort . She’s proven at the track and looking at her pedigree is finally attempting a more appropriate trip . Could be the one in a tricky nursery .
1/4pt win Hi Clare @ 9/2
6.45 PREMIUM RACE
7.15 The late playing Nacho is a 3 time C&D winner and comes here in good form. Badly drawn but as a late player, that’s not a great issue . Not a deep race and with plenty of early pace around , the race likely to be run to suit .
1/4pt win Nacho @ 4/1
