3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Redredrobin 4.30 @ 9/4

Deputy 4.50 @ 11/4

Bomb Squad 3.20 @ 11/4

1.00Red Maple was a comfortable enough winner at Market Rasen in his first try at around this trip, showing great willing in the finish . He’s one of the few proven at the trip and is also a course winner . In a race for conditionals , the very able Kevin Brogan takes the ride .

1/2pt win Red Maple @ 7/2

1.30 PREMIUM RACE

2.05 A stack of in form types and a stack of early pace . The nod goes to the ultra consistent Lermoos Legend , a close 2nd off around this mark two races back at Cartmel , but wins at Ffos las show he is every bit as effective on a track like today . He can be forgiven a lesser run last time as he clearly didn’t stay the longer trip .

1/4pt  ew Lermoos Legend @ 7/1

3.10 King Ottoman was once rated in the lofty 100’s on the flat , but despite frequent help from the handicapper , didn’t look like he was taking much interest. He’s now with Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson , but his only try over hurdles was another disappointment . In a most winnable race , this should be decent flat horse Winterwatch’s day .

1/2pt win Winterwatch @ 2/1

3.40 The very reliable Oscar Montel runs this track very well , 2 wins and 4 places from 7 tris. He switches back to hurdles ,and his form over the smaller obstacles has been mixed , but still preferred .

1/4pt won Oscar Montel @ 4/1

Selected Thirsk – soft ground on this flat and galloping track

1.40 Wildmountainthyme can be relied upon to run her race . Trip , mark  and ground all fine, so a nice ew play in a race where not many count .

1/4pt  ew  Wildmountainthyme @ 12/1

2.15 A huge field for this nursery and hard to be sure with so many going handicapping for the first time and so many trying soft ground . Heathcliff’s Girl is with a top stable , but only modest on what we’ve seen thus far, but last time was a closing 3rd on easy ground . Dropped a few pounds and longer trip promises to help .

1/4pt win Heathcliff’s Girl @ 6/1

3.20 A big field for this selling handicap. Bomb Squad s only modest but reliable and handles soft ground very well . Not much to beat .

1/2pt  win Bomb Squad @ 11/4

3.50 The nod goes to Proclivity , in form and handles soft ground .

1/2pt win Proclivity @ 7/4

4.20 The reliable Lilikoi was only narrowly denied last time and does have form on soft ground . The hat-trick seeking , front running Bungley won’t have the ground in his favour and has a hefty penalty . Irresistable has to overcome a drop in trip and unproven on soft while going up in trip on soft ground may be too much for the reliable Emily Post.

1/4pt win Lilkoi @ 4/1

4.50 The ground has finally come right for the mud loving late playing Deputy , a good 5th when last seen on ground too quick and last run on soft ground was a close 3rd off a 2 pound higher mark .

1/2pt win Deputy @ 11/4

Selected Brighton – good ground on this undulating, sharp and tricky track

1.50 Red Alert comes here on a track hat-trick and connections attempt to counter the 5 pound hit with the booking of an able 5 pound claimer , but of more concern is that the cheekpieces , worn the last twice, are missing . He only just got the better of Big Bard last time ,with a long way back to anything else . That was over 7 furlongs, but the tip is a C&D winner , and with so much early pace around , this late player can gain compensation for that narrow defeat.

1/2pt  win Big Bard @ 2/1

4.30 The front running Redredrobin has been making hay at Chepstow but is also a C&D winner here . He’s found himself in a soft race and can overcome the 4 pound hit .

1/2pt win Redredrobin @ 9/4

5.00 The even money fav is the late playing C&D specialist Lethal Angel, but she had little to spare over the ageing C&D specialist King Crimson over C&D a few starts back , and the 2 pound pull brings them even closer together . The old guy could be away and gone .

1/4pt  ew  King Crimson @ 10/1

Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack

5.30 Galore had little to spare over Rowdown Roza over C&D recently , they are both nudged up the ratings and on revised terms, it’ll be close again . The ultra consistent Gumais has been cruelly shoved up 3 pounds for a series of good placed efforts on turf , but is proven on the surface and the rise in the ratings merely keeps him on a par with the aforementioned pair . Aira Force ran well to be 3rd In quite  a competitive maiden at Southwell , and not particularly well handicapped  on that , but The respected Kubler Stable is 2 from 2 in nurseries here ! Happy to watch.

6.30 Alexandretta races in famous colours but was allowed to start at very long odds on her recent debut over C&D , and the 80/1 shot gave the very solid looking long odds on fav in Theme Park , an almighty fright , going down by a neck. Should reward fav backers .

1/2pt  win  Alexandretta @ 5/4

7.30 Hard to knock Treble Joy , 2 consecutive 2nds , but his best two runs have come a Lingfield, while his run here was only fair, but still gets the nod .

1/4pt win Treble Joy @ 5/2
