Comments

14:10 Songo

A weak maiden in which Milton Harris has a strong hand. SONGO has a good strike-rate on the Flat and there’s good reason to believe he can step up on his Huntingdon fourth. Stablemate Janus ran an eye-catching race at Newton Abbot and he’s the danger. Deer Hunter is also of interest.

14:45 Getawaytonewbay

Not many of these have solid recent form under similar conditions but GETAWAYTONEWBAY is one who does, and a repeat of her third at Warwick last time would put her right in the mix again. Bad Boy Du Pouldu could be suited by dropping in distance and looks the main danger, with Princess Midnight another capable of going close if building on her reappearance effort.

15:20 Moon Of Baroda

Celestial Force was a bit disappointing at Hereford on Tuesday and he may again prove vulnerable to an unpenalised opponent in MOON OF BARODA, whose second at Ludlow last season is just about the best piece of jumps form on show. Ex-Irish Dave And Bernie is also entitled to have some say.

15:55 Get Back Get Back (NAP)

A competitive handicap, the top six on the card all having won at least one race from their last two outings. Of them, GET BACK GET BACK (nap) appeals the most as his style of racing has been tending to hide his true ability. Chantecler is likely to give another good account of himself, but a bigger danger could come from Andaleep lurking at the bottom of the weights.

16:30 Bally Longford

A chance is taken on BALLY LONGFORD returning to form. He’s slipped back to a good mark even without factoring in Harry Kimber’s claim and he might just get a cheap lead. It was more like it from Captain Tommy at Bangor and he’s second choice.

17:05 Get The Appeal

None of these are that convincing. Paul Nicholls had a successful handicap debutant at Hereford on Tuesday and perhaps GET THE APPEAL can repeat the trick now back on quicker ground. Can You Believe It may revive in first-time cheekpieces, and the 2018 runner-up Jennys Day is also respected.

17:35 Seaside Girl

With so few of these in form it makes sense to stick with SEASIDE GIRL on the back of her successful start over fences. Auld Sod doesn’t appear to have recovered from a hard race at Fontwell but he’s still one of the better alternatives.
