  1. Quote “Life is for sure the greatest game that you'll ever play.” Though this game came close. Well done Ricardo, the luck was with me (home advantage!). I wish you well in your other games and hope you can do me a favour by beating Roy's Rovers. PercyP
  2. Oso Rapido 2.30 Redcar (Win 8/1 BetVictor) A £90k yearling ran extremely well on his debut when second at Ripon. Continues to give a good account and is never far away. Chance tomorrow.
  3. Alfa Dawn 4.30 Thirsk (Eway 10/1 Bet365) I have resisted the obvious choice of Percy’s Prince in favor of an eight race maiden. Alfa Dawn ran recently over course and distance finishing 9th of the 10 runners. That day she led till the last furlong before weakening. Hopefully tomorrow they will try less aggressive tactics.
  4. Fashion Royalty 2.35 Ffos las (Win 10/1 SkyBet) Purchased for £385k in October 2018 Fashion Royalty was well supported (5/1) when she made her debut at headquarters finishing 7th of 8. It is somewhat of a surprise to see her turn up at Ffos Las. Her trainer Roger Charlton is the top trainer at this track (25% win record in last 21 days.) Her jockey Jason Watson is in form (22% win record in last 21 days).
  5. Island Jungle 5.05 Chelmsford (E.Way 14/1 SkyBet) Purchased by Godolphin for £200k as a yearling, Island Jungle ran three times for Saeed Bin Suroor obtaining a handicap rating of 76. With no wins and no places in his eight races it takes a big leap of faith to make him my selection. The reasoning for my selection is: Island Jungle is now down to 64 dropping into a class six for the first time, steps up in distance, was only beaten 3 lengths in his last race (the closest he has come to making the frame) and has the top track jockey Adam Kirby in the saddle.

  8. Helian 5.10 Chepstow (Win 7/1 Bet365) Helian is sired by Shamardal so it is no surprise to me to see forms figures of 0, 3, 0 and 4 for his only four racetrack appearances. Based on breeding these races were far too short for him to excel. He will be far better suited by tomorrow’s step up to 12 furlongs. The good news is that his handicap rating is based upon the form shown to date (he also gets an eight pound age allowance), so he should be ahead of the handicapper. Sold for £145k as a yearling he should be well up to winning this class six race.

  12. Ghayyer 5.05 Carlise (E.Way 10/1 SkyBet) Ghayyer an expensive yearling, is a regular at Carlise having run there six times. He clearly prefers the mile distance as over nine furlongs his course form reads 4 and 6. Over eight furlongs his course form reads 1, 3, 3, and 2. Returning to a mile will be to his advantage. Dropping in the ratings he is now off 68 (having won off ratings of 77 and 72) so he should be competitive. Regular pilot Rachel Richardson returns to the saddle to do the steering.
  13. Fox Kasper 3.30 Catterick (E.Way 14/1 Bet365) Fox Kasper was a £220k yearling so expectations were high. Trained by Roger Varian he reached a rating of 75, now down to 68 he has changed stables to top northern trainer Tim Easterby. The drop back to 7f could be to his liking as his two previous runs over this distance were 2nd and 3rd (beaten less than 2.5 lengths).
  14. Inteldream 8.30 Wolverhampton (E.Way 40/1 PaddyPower) Sold in April 2018 for £45,000, Inteldream runs in a Wolverhampton maiden for Marco Botti a trainer who does well at this course 125 winners. Inteldream has been unplaced in his two runs over 8f & 9f, so the step up to 12f could prove the key. He has talented apprentice jockey Stefano Cherchi in the saddle claiming a useful 7lbs (his 2019 record is 8 wins from 58 rides).
