Overview for Sunday - please scroll down to the bottom of the page


2.00: Providing the relevant claimer can call on all five pounds of his allowance, FIRST DRIFT might be able to get the better of BALLYVIC BORU under these conditions.  CASH TO ASH could outrun his odds to take care of the other contenders.

Favourite factor: Three of the last seven renewals have been won by favourites, whilst the biggest priced winner during that period was returned at just 4/1.


2.30: RIO QUINTO and FLORRIE KNOX stand out from the small crowd in this short field event, the two runners being listed in order of preference.  New readers might like to know that the term short field relates to 5/6/7 runner races in which only the first two horses home qualify from each way and Placepot perspectives.

Favourite factor: Last year’s inaugural 1/5 favourite duly landed the odds.


3.05: YOURHOLIDAYISOVER is one of the more likely ‘outsiders’ on the card which could actually score this afternoon, albeit the senior runner in the field might be pushed to get the better of MASTER OF FINANCE at the business end of the contest and (possibly) ROXYFET.

Favourite factor: Last year’s inaugural 11/8 market leader secured a Placepot position, though beaten by a 9/1 chance on the day.

Record of the course winner in the third race:

1/3—Miss Conway (good)


3.35: The 7/1 quote in the trade press about THE OGLE GOGLE MAN always looked a tad fanciful, with 11/2 being a more logical price from my viewpoint.  ISKABEG LANE represents Sue Smith with a definite chance of extending her good run of results, whilst SHANTY TOWN is another consider over your breakfast/Sunday brunch.  The handicapper should be able to sleep easier in his/her bed tonight having potentially caught up with Knocknamona at last.

Favourite factor: This is a new race on the Market Rasen card.

Record of the course winner in the fourth event:

1/5—Iskabeg Lane (good to soft)


4.10: Seven-year-olds have secured three of the last five renewals and with vintage representatives AARON LAD and HEAD TO THE STARS hailing from the in form yards of Dr Richard Newland and Henry Daly respectively, this pair are the first names on the team sheet, followed by another vintage raider with each way claims, namely SKIPTHECUDDLES.

Favourite factor: Three of the last four favourites have obliged, whilst the 5/2 second favourite got the better of the market leader close home on the other occasion.

Record of the course winner in the fifth contest on the card:

1/1—Doesyourdogbite (good)

1/2—Molly Childers (good to soft)


4.40: Sean Bowen won all four of his rides at Hereford on Saturday and having secured that 699/1 accumulator, the pilot will be riding with an amazing amount of confidence for one so young.  Sean climbs aboard WHAT A DIVA for his dad holding an obvious chance, with connections probably having most to fear from the likes of PENNYWELL and FLEMERINA.

Favourite factor: All three market leaders have secured Placepot positions via two renewals thus far.

Record of the course winner in the Placepot finale:

1/2—What A Diva (soft)

1/8—Milly Baloo (soft)

1/3—Flemarina (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.
