5.40: The two horses that won last time out make most appeal, namely GREY GALLEON and LANJANO who are listed in marginal order of preference.  SAYESSE completes my trio against the other five runners in this 'dead eight' Nursery event.

Favourite factor: Last year's inaugural 2/1 favourite finished out of the money behind horses which filled the frame at 10/1-6/1-10/1.

6.10: VOTE did not get the best of luck in running but still finished fourth on debut at Sandown, with James Eustace appearing to found a decent opportunity for his Aqlaam filly.  John Quinn cannot do a lot wrong at this moment in time and Jason Hart's mount LOCAL ARTIST appears to be the alternative each way option.  If both the opening races remain as dead eight contests, the bookmakers might have trouble taking any profit into the third race on the card.

Favourite factor: The two favourites to date have secured one gold medal and two of the silver variety thus far.

 6.40: John Quinn (six of his last nineteen runners have won) boasts another definite chance here with his Royal Applause gelding REPUTATION, with the sire's stock generally excelling over this six furlong trip, as he did himself. TANASOQ is the main threat from my viewpoint, with a chance also offered to CLASSIC PURSUIT at the overnight stage.

Favourite factor: Both of the inaugural 5/1 joint favourites finished out with the washing, setting up the half decent Placepot dividend.  The 33/1 winner winner was followed home by horses returned at 25/1 & 10/1.

7.10: Ivan Furtado could equal his first season tally of 15 winners (last year) with MONOPOLI here, with the triple course and distance winner (no success elsewhere) looking up to the task. Free One also represents the stable, though more logical dangers include BECCA CAMPBELL and CANNY STYLE.

Favourite factor: Two of the three favourites (via two renewals) claimed Placepot position by winning their respective events.

7.40: Beaten favourite HULCOLT would be the win and place call, though the chance of either ALNASHAMA and COMPANY ASSET snaring gold is too hard to resist, especially as I seem to need plenty of runners in the other Placepot races in order to land the dividend.

Favourite factor: Both (7/4 & 5/2) favourites had finished out with the washing before last year's 9/4 market leader secured the silver gong alongside a Placepot position.

8.10: Once Chris Wall gets his horses in winning form, inmates often leave previous efforts behind and there is a strong case to be made for ALWAYS A DREAM, particularly from a Placepot perspective.  Connections might have most to fear from MARCLE and ARTISTS MODEL who are listed in marginal order of preference.

Favourite factor: Last year's inaugural 9/2 favourite snared a Placepot position by finishing second behind a (Richard Fahey trained) 25/1 winner.


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.
