  1. Doncaster 8.50 Saywhatyouwant Each way Fergal O'Brien sends one runner out from his Gloucestershire base. Saffie Osbourne rides and this hurdler from Donald McCain has not run on the flat since October 21 when a nose second @ 50/1 to insignia of rank at Naas. Two wins over hurdles. Gets in off a lower mark than last flat run. May need the run but could have run down in the south west another day long trip for one runner....
  2. Catterick 8.25 Elusive Angel Win Jailhouse rock Each way
  3. Victory echo did it well enough. Stepped up a further four furlongs, both of the horses following also had form over distances. First class return didn't look sound at times and was under pressure before jumping sharply right, and was pulled up. Had fallen last time out and was going further than before. That run may well have put him right for going back to shorter trips.....
  4. Fairyhouse 8.05 Gallows hill Win Ran a blinder last month and was clear of the field on "the wrong side " Finished run out of it but identified as an outlier, being the only low drawn runner in the first 9 home. Billy Lee takes over in the saddle. He'll need to settle this time, but Billy Lee should be able to slip him in and hopefully go clear of this huge field, all depends on the draw again....
  5. Mras 8.15 Victory echo & first class return Reverse forecast should fight this one out. Victory echo had a front running win latest and is raised four pounds. Connor Rabbit's half stone claim covers that. Even though his claim negates it partially, he has still gone up in real terms. Bottom weight first class return is pulled into this by the absence of the top weight (traverse law) and being under several winning marks, has a shout here.
  6. Roscommon 4.35 Construct Darkened Both each way
  7. Yarmouth 4pm United front Win Takes a drop in class here and without a win in turf may improve here after a couple of spins in the dirt in meydan. William Buick is the jockey. Goddess of fire Each way Won last year after a break ( December to April ) and has been off since October this time. Up in class here and all to do but is ruden off a featherweight with claiming taking off seven pounds.
  8. Bungleinthejungle!! Patasola Win Beverley 2.40 Just a class six claimer here and Tim Easterby's runner drops out of a class two. The bunglie horses have been winning all around the world over the last few days.
  9. Happy valley 1.15 Hercules Each way In good form and Zac Purton up. Jockey has won on this horse before and looks likely to make a bold bid here.
  10. Happy jai jai second 15/1. Happy valley 12.45 Ariel Each way Three wins on the all weather and turf in England over a mile and seven furlongs in 2021. Gradually coming to hand in Hong Kong and still a maiden here. Tenth run and close to recording a breakthrough win here.
  11. Happy valley 1145 Happy jai jai Hangs choice Both win Very competitive looking race, but these two to have strong claims. Dropped to a winning mark happy jai while hangs choice dropped 19 pounds and knocking on the door . Both placed in recent runs.
  12. Just failed at 28/1 Nagoya 11.10 Anzu Each way The only course winner in this field of juveniles but possibly vunerable to newcomers who are stepping up in trip.
  13. Sonada 1030 A shin beaming Win On a double after last time out win. Ordinarie Each way Not seen since February. Ran out 125/1 winner at himinj before 33/1 third. No wins here but interesting reappearing at sonada.
  14. Nottingham 9 pm Sicario Win. Affair Each way
  15. Lingfield 8.10 Nogo's Dream Win. Form of second to prospering at ascot has been franked at a higher level.
  16. Lingfield 7.40 Revolutionary Man Triggered Both win Triggered is on a roll but if he cannot go through with a win under a penalty, then rival Revolutionary Man the bottom weight can take advantage.
  17. Tipperary 6.45 Excesso Velocidad each way Lots of collaborative form with placed runners and winners this weekend. Placed behind queen medebah and beat Valkyrie in a maiden. 33/1 winner in England yesterday in lower grade. Lokada Win Gets over two stone from rival he finished second to latest.
  18. Tipperary 6.15 NEVER SHOUT NEVER Win On debut may well be good enough for fozzy stack
  19. 14477 Ballinrobe 6pm. MEDIA NARANJA Win Gets 7lb from custom of the sea who won a maiden hurdle. The selection was placed in a grade three and the jockey claims a further half stone to get this horse home in front. Gordon Elliott is very good at placing his runners in the right races.
  20. Redcar 4.55 Royal prospect goes well fresh has been off for over 200 days. Won here off a mark of 85 as a four year old. Royal prospect Each way Galton Each way The bottom weight can get in here on traverse law ( of draw or weights) if either the top weight or one of the more fancied winners fails to run their race. Not particularly highly rated but on the early road of handicapping and ran well latest.
  21. "check his bets every day ... just to oppose him if possible. His followers make the market for others IMO. Yes, occasionally he has a winner ( I would say virtually impossible to get the price), but in general I find that his strike rate is poor." This. But I find he helps to open up a market for others. The eventual winner, if it is not his selection will go off at a good price.
  22. Redcar 2.50 NAKANO Win Makes handicap debut and may have got in lightly. Shaped well running wide behind infinite cosmos latest. Certainly a good horse for future races. Oisin Murphy rides and can show more here on one of only two rides for the group winning jockey.
  23. Leicester 2.50 American oak Each way Pledgeofallegiance Win Headgear goes on for turf debut. Usual modus operandi for trainer. Three sprints and while handicap debut in Al weather didn't work out, lost little in defeat and improvement likely. Still vunerable to an improver like Tim Easterby runner
