Friday's Placepot permutation at Fontwell:

Leg 4 (3.40): 2 (Atlantic Roller), 1 (Clondaw Westie) & 3 (Le Coeur Net)
Leg 5 (4.15): 2 (Present Times), 1 (Kings Lad) & 8 (Norse Legend)
Leg 6 (4.50): 3 (Very Live) & 5 (Burgess Dream)
Suggested stake: 324 bets to 10p stakes
2.05: Overnight money has arrived for a few ‘outsiders’ in this contest, the pick of which might prove to be KASTANI BEACH and GOLDSLINGER. DRAGON KHAN is slightly preferred to Be Daring of those towards the head of the market at the time of writing. The concession of weight might prove too much for Chris Gordon’s raider, despite the useful claim of Harry Reed. If you fancy a clean sweep for bookmakers in the contest, Welluptoscratch is not without an each way chance.
2.35: Colin Tizzard puts a spanner in works having declared both WIZARDS BRIDGE and BEARS RAILS. The pair are listed in marginal order of preference though with a potential ‘win only’ contest on our hands (in the event of a withdrawal), I’m adding CRANK EM UP into the Placepot mix.
Record of the three course winners in the second race:
2/5—Leo Luna (good & heavy)
3/5—Wizards Bridge (Good – soft – heavy)
1/1—Bears Rails (soft)
3.10: Despite the ground concerns, course winner LARRY demands respect though having gone well on heavy going recently, DUKE OF KILCORRAL is the call. In the absence of any interest in the potential outsiders, Illtellmema looks booked for third spot from my viewpoint.
Record of the course winner in the field:
1/2—Larry (good to soft)
3.40: Just the three runners have been declared and with Anthony Honeyball saddling the ‘outsider’ of the party here, I’m adding all three declarations into the Placepot mix. In order of preference, the trio is listed as ATLANTIC ROLLER, CLONDAW WESTIE and LE COEUR NET.
Record of the two course winners in the fourth contest on the card:
1/2—Clondaw Westie (heavy)
1/3—Atlantic Roller (heavy)
4.15: As a winner of two of his seven races on heavy ground, PRESENT TIMES is the win and place call in another trappy race on the Fontwell card. It’s great to have turf racing back in the mix, though I will be relieved to have got through to the last leg if I have survived the minefield thus far. Others aiding and abetting the cause (hopefully) include Colin Tizzard’s value for money pair, KINGS LAD and NORSE LEGEND.
Record of the two course winners in the fifth race:
1/1—Kings Lad (heavy)
1/8—Occasionally Yours (soft)
4.50: VERY LIVE and BURGESS DREAM are the tentative dio to land the Placepot dividend between them, hoping for a few upsets along the way to produce another mind blowing Placepot dividend, as was the case yesterday!
Record of the course winner in the Placepot finale:
4/15—Try Catch Me (3 x good & good to soft)
All place details offered on my pages relate to an 'exact science', whereby horses that finish third in 5/6/7 runner races (and other such scenarios) are not 'placed' regarding my statistics.
