*Last year’s Placepot dividends at Southwell and Kempton are listed at the foot of today’s column alongside the relevant breakdown of units for each leg twelve months ago + prices of placed horses and unplaced favourites

 

1.40: The early money on the exchanges in the dead of night suggest that ERTIDAAD, RATTLE ON and ROCKSETTE should all figure prominently at the business end of proceedings.  The trio is listed in order of preference at the time of writing, with ERTIDAAD looking to record his second course win at the fourth attempt.  Trainer Suzi best recorded a 37% strike rate back in February via three winners and the stable could be ready to bounce back to winning ways today with a couple of inmates holding leading chances over the next few days from my viewpoint.

Record of the four course winners in the opening race:

7/33—Bertie Blu Boy

1/3—Ertidaad

1/3—Rattle On

3/31--Bookmaker

 

2.10: This is the second division of the opening race on the card, with MIME DANCE and BLOODSWATANDTEARS looking a cut above their rivals from the top of the handicap. This pair could dominate the finish of what appears to be the weaker heat of the two contests.

Record of the two course winners in the field:

1/15—Tabla

1/8—Binky Blue

 

2.45: Roger Varian’s last seven runners have been beaten but I’m not offering that stat from a negative viewpoint regarding any concern for stable representatives.  No, it’s more a case of Roger champing at the bit to put the recent record behind him whereby Roger’s Lethal Force colt FLAVIUS TITUS is the first name on the team sheet ahead of course winner INSURGENCE and TATHMEEN.  The latter named Exceed And Excel colt represents Richard Hannon who has saddled four of his last ten runners to winning effect.

Record of the four course winners in the third contest on the card:

1/1—Insurgence

2/5—Bungee Jump

 

3.15: Frankie Dettori’s last mount was for Richard Hannon back on the 24th of last month when the team paired up to winning effect and the bandwagon rolls on here with HAYLAH.  Whether they will cope with KALAGIA is another matter with Mark Johnston’s inmate proving popular with investors overnight.

 

3.45: Trainer David O’Meara has endured a poor run of results for several months now by his high standards, though recent results suggest that the Yorkshire outfit are ready to fight back, their last two runners having won.  It’s typical of David’s luck over the last six months that meetings are being called off here, there and everywhere relating to turf venues, though the chance for his inmate IMPART is there for all to see this afternoon.  Conversely, Michael Herrington has been enjoying a fine period and his winning ways might not be over just yet having declared NEWSTEAD ABBEY in this grade/company.

 

4.15: Eve Johnson Houghton enjoyed a fabulous 2017 and there is every chance that the trainer can prove that period was far from a flash in pan judged on some early winners this term.  LAST ENCHANTMENT is the first name on the team sheet accordingly ahead of SWEET SYMPHONE and POETIC STEPS.

 

Record of the four course winners in the 7th (non Placepot) race:

2/6—Taverner

1/7—Black Caesar

1/3—Natalie Express

5/16--Clement

Record of the course winner in the eighth contest at 5.15:

1/2—Night Story
