It's a deplorable run I'm on currently, and I'll be glad to see the back of August truth be told. Bring on the jumpers, and some bigger fields. Before that though, bring on the jumpers and Newton Abbot's small fields!

2.10 - Leg 1: A short favourite here is Walter White, but he looks dodgy to me. I'll have him on my team, of course, but not alone. Backing him up are the better flat horses, Complexity and Studfarmer, both making their hurdling bows.

A - 1 (Walter White)
B - 2 (Complexity), 4 (Studfarmer)

2.45 - Leg 2: No Woman No Cry is not the most straightforward, and he's let me down a few times. But he looks the percentage play. Jayandbee has ugly form figures, but carries top weight for a reason - that's a good combination for placepot players and he makes up the other half of my 'hopeful but not expectant' A ticket.

A - 1 (Jayandbee), 5 (No Woman No Cry)

3.20 - Leg  3: Anton Dolin and Osorios Trial are the most reliable propositions, but I also reckon Edgeworth is a very big price as the outsider of the field, and he's getting a piece of it here too. Vimiero represents the flying Jonjo yard and is hard to ignore. Wide coverage, and looking for a result.

A - 2 (Anton Dolin), 4 (Osorios Trial)
B - 1 (Vimiero), 6 (Edgeworth)

3.55 - Leg 4: Kian's Delight is favoured here, but he'll struggle to get his own way on the front in what might be a fast run race. My early fancy, The Disengager, is also likely to have to sit off the searing early sizzle, and that might compromise his chance. Bobowen looks the one, back on faster ground after an abortive mission to Galway's sodden planes for the Plate.

Jonjo's Twirling Magnet may also get involved, unexposed and in form as he is.

A - 1 (The Disengager), 3 (Twirling Magnet), 5 (Bobowen)

4.30 - Leg 5: Southway Queen traveled beautifully into a similar race last week and got done up by a marvelous Maurice Linehan ride on Dreamsoftheatre. This looks a similar contest, and I think she'll go close again.

Thornton Alice and Little Eaglet are other contenders in an open race.

A - 4 (Southway Queen)
B - 3 (Thornton Alice), 5 (Little Eaglet)

5.05 - Leg 6: Wester Ross looks a good bet here and is my late banker. He's won off a higher mark last year, in higher class, loves this sort of ground and comes here in fine form. He's carried big weights before and I'm hopeful of a big run.

A - 1 (Wester Ross)
