  4. Chelmsford 7:00 Kadrizzi @ 10/1 bet365 win thanks Kadrizzi.....from Dean Ivory yard the 4yo has won four times from 5f to 6f including 2 wins on polytrack , He seemingly has lost his way in last year he was winning in class 2 race at Ascot ,Lingfield and Chelmsford , Its been 13 months since last win and only good form was a 2nd place here when 2nd of 6 runners beaten 1.75 lengths in April five races back , The yard also throw in a couple of 7f races with no success , Four of last 5 races he wore Cheekpieces and last race 10 days ago they tried visor for first time again poor run when 12 of 18 runners beaten 8 lengths , The yard now bring him down a grade to class 3 and back to AW 6f race the visor stay on but tongue-tie is add for first time Winning races off 100 and last win off 97 sees him drop to 92 and down in class but that 2nd here may be why they're him back to find that form again with Robert Winston in saddle who won on him here and Lingfield both over 5f
  5. Beverley 18:55 Classic Pursuit @ 11/1 Ladbrokes win thanks Classic Pursuit.....from Michael Appleby yard and not even a Godolphin owned horse, the 6yo only came to yard in March this year from Ivan Furtado , He's been a winner of five races from 5f to 6f on good to firm and good ground and on the all-weather with only one of those wins coming from Appleby yard in the 7 races he's had for yard with win coming at Chelmsford 5f AW, He's also had a 2nd and 3rd on turf over 5f the change on horse seems to be that he's went over 5f in last 4 races which that 5f AW race started that run , His last race was 27 days ago at Leicester 5f GF when 3rd when he had to switched right halfway and made headway over 1f out before ridden but stayed on same pace inside final furlong with Miss S Brotherton in saddle in this ladies races , The yard bring Royston Ffrench back in as he had a win and 2nd place in three runs on horse since coming to yard

  12. Ayr 4.30 Testa Rossa @ 20/1 WH e/w thanks Testa Rossa was to run on 9th and 10th of July but withdrawn both times because of heavy rain both days, He's from the Jim Goldie yard the 7yo has won nine races from 7f to 1m 2f on good to firm and soft ground and on the all-weather. He's done Jim a few turns and been knocking at the door again in last two races a 2nd here good going beaten a nose and a 3rd at Newcastle AW beaten 1.25 lengths both races over 1m 2f with both races last month , Jim tried to run him this month twice but bad weather beat him so comes here today a race which Jim's probably targeted as it's the Glasgow Fair Monday but probably would have like a run before today hopefully he's worked him at home to be fit and ready to the holiday makers a turn, He up in class today and is brought back to 1m and won here over this distance in May this year. He's off 82 mark and bottom weight and also has Sean Mooney claiming 7lbs in saddle
  13. Perth 4:10 Indian Voyage @ 20/1 bet365 e/w thanks Just to let you know its been raining in Scotland all day Saturday and although the going in Racing Post says (good ) I would expect the rain has got into the ground and going will be (good to soft) or even (soft) Indian Voyage.....from Maurice Barnes yard the 9yo has been a winner of six chases from 1m 7f to 2m 4f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy, He ran here 10 days ago over this distance on good going when Tangolan beat him by 13 lengths and he faces up to Tangolan again today but going should favour Indian Voyage, Indian Voyage is getting weight off Tangolan and will be running on better condition that will suit Indian Voyage as be time the rain gets in ground with the other races well could have a closer contest , The yard also change jockey to Dale Irving claiming 3lbs
  14. I heard its a heavier suit of armour The Tin Man has to carry
  15. Newmarket 3.25 Mutawathea @ 14/1 skybet e/w thanks Mutawathea....from Simon Crisford yard the 6yo has won three times from 6f to 1m on the all-weather but still looking for that first win on Turf although showed signs this season after coming back from Dubai in his 2nd race some 28 days ago when at York 7f GF he finished 2nd beaten 3/4 lengths by Viscount Barfield , He was held up and made headway on wide outside well over 1f out, ridden to chase leading pair entering final furlong was soon driven out by young claimer Lewis Edmunds claiming 5lbs but just ran out of distance as he was running on , He ran here last year in this race only beaten a 1 length into 3rd place he's also a 1lb lower from last years mark when Robert Havlin rode him , The yard are giving Lewis Edmunds his 2nd run on horse and with that 5lb allowance sees him 6lb better off from last year mark
