Overview for Sunday - please scroll down to the bottom of the page
1.10: Apologies offered for the late running of this Sunday service owing to a family bereavement yesterday. It’s difficult to look beyond LISP for Alan King who got lucky with a win with another four-year-old (albeit in a much higher grade) at Ascot yesterday. AIRTIGHT is the first of eight runners on the card for Gary Moore whose runner looked like winning at Ascot yesterday in the relevant contest before topping over in at the final flight. I doubt that Gary will gain compensation here though that said, the silver medal looks there for the taking in this grade/company.
Favourite factor: This is essentially a ‘new meeting’, simply because this corresponding fixture has been abandoned year on year since the addition to the calendar!
1.40: JARLATH could take advantage of bottom weight if his five-pound claimer has not had a heart destroying breakfast this morning, given that the Seamus Mullins raider will be receiving anything up to 17 pounds from CODY WYOMING. Charlie Mann’s raider has won two of his last three assignments but has reached a revised mark from which he struggled to score from in the past. NATIVE ROBIN and BRAMBLE BROOK are preferred as dangers accordingly.
Course winners in the second event:
1/2—Cody Wyoming (soft)
2.10: Nick Gifford is the latest trainer to take advantage of the wonderful emerging talent that is James Bowen, with THEO’S CHARM fancied to giving the young teenager another winner. Twelve assignments have come and gone since ‘Theo’ last posted a score and the eight-year-old enters my ‘last chance saloon’ accordingly. Others of interest include FOURTH ACT and I SEE YOU WELL, with my patience finally having worn thin with Chris Pea Green.
2.40: LEITH HILL LEGASI has been the horse for money overnight and if Charlie Longsdon’s raider can recover some of the form he showed earlier in his career, there is no denying that the race could be there for the taking. Hat trick seeker GORING ONE cannot be ruled out of the Placepot mix on this ground, arguably alongside IT’S A STEAL.
Course winners in the fourth contest on the card:
2/5—Goring One (2 x soft)
3.10: Harry Fry was back in double winning form at Ascot yesterday and MELROSE BOY has been well placed by the trainer to score at will here. Emma Lavelle has never been the type of trainer to avoid a race because of one horse whereby RUGGERIO is the forecast call in a race which will take very little winning.
3.40: I could have fancied all three of Olly Murphy’s horses going close today before his other pair were denied a run via the negative Newcastle inspection result. As it stands, Olly must rely on MULLAGHBOY to gain another gold medal, with connections probably having most to fear from the next youngest horse in the field, namely KEEL HAUL.
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.
