Pair of 6th's yesterday

Clan Jock 16.00 Hamilton 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Has enjoyed a very good season, winning 3 times here. Good runner-up efforts last twice (C&D first occasion) and looks sure to play a prominent role again. 

Royal Eagle 15.10 Listowel 1 Pt Win @ 4\1 (bog)

Promising type. Fairly useful winner at 12f on flat. Won 9-runner handicap at Tramore (12f, good, 7/2) 36 days ago, keeping on well. Switches from Flat to hurdles. Makes handicap hurdle debut. Tops shortlist.

5th yesterday

Cite D'Or 14.17 Beverley 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Off the mark on debut at Brighton (7f) in August and built on that in defeat since, runner-up in a Redcar novice (7f) on latest outing 24 days ago, pulling clear with an improver. Sound claims again up in trip. 

Tiymara 16.55 Listowel 1 pt Win @ 7\2 (bog)

Thrice-raced maiden. 11/1, third of 11 in maiden at Roscommon (7.4f, good to soft) 36 days ago. Makes handicap debut. Open to progress.

1st @ 11\10 & Faller yesterday

Albion Princess 19.45 Kempton 1 Pt Win @ 4\1 (bog)

Gambled on again and improved when dead-heating for first in 6-runner handicap (13/8) at Ffos Las (10f, good) 42 days ago. Open to further progress up in trip and leading claims. 

Amir Kabir 14.35 Listowel 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Promising type. 1 win from 2 runs this season. Successful at Roscommon in July. ½-length second of 9 to Flaming Moon in listed hurdle at Galway (16.5f, good, 13/2) 57 days ago. 4 lb better off with that rival now and may well turn the tables here with further improvement likely.

2nd & 1st @ 2\1 today

All Go  19.15 Chelmsford 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Got off the mark in 9-runner novice at Southwell (7.1f, evens) 31 days ago. Makes handicap debut and has to be taken seriously off a lenient mark. 

Native Queen 14.35 Listowel 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Promising sort. 5/6, third of 17 in maiden at Fairyhouse (7f, good) 3 days ago, finishing with running left. Stable in good form. Open to improvement. Player.

6th & NR today

Mutaany 15.50 Haydock 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Well-bred colt who continued race-by-race progress when second of 9 in novice event at Wolverhampton (6.1f) 46 days ago, nicely clear of the rest. Sets a good standard. 

The Short Go 13.40 Listowel 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Promising individual. Second of 22 to The Nice Guy in novice hurdle (9/4) at Naas (19f, good to soft) when last seen in January, despite pulling hard. That form is very strong (the winner has scored twice in Grade 1 company since). Obvious claims.

Pair of 2nd's yesterday

Conservationist 13.30 Haydock 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Sister to 2-y-o 6f winner Custodian and half-sister to 2-y-o 7f winner Leopold Bloom. Looks the part and produced a promising first effort when second of 9 in novice at Newmarket (7f, good to soft) 29 days ago. Sets the standard and likely to improve. 

Thecompanysergeant 17.28 Listowel 1 Pt Win @ 3\1 (bog)

11/4, confirmed debut promise when landing 14-runner bumper at Kilbeggan (16f, good) 36 days ago. Player with more to come.

Double Up yesterday @ 5\2 & 3\1 .... :cigar

Wonderful Times 15.34 Yarmouth 1 Pt Win @ 9\4 (bog)

Lightly-raced filly. Bit below form second of 6 in minor event (2/9) at Nottingham (10.2f) in June, headed last ½f. However, given a break since and pick of previous efforts give her sound claims here. 

Caroline Street 15.40 Curragh 1 Pt Win @ Evens (bog)

Promising type who posted excellent 1½ lengths second of 5 to Auguste Rodin in Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown (8f, soft) 15 days ago, travelling smoothly long way. The one to beat back at 7f now.

3rd & 6th yesterday

United Approach 13.44 Ayr 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Promising type. 14/1, fifth of 13 in minor event at Ascot (6f, good) on debut 25 days ago, nearest finish. Likely to improve with that experience to draw upon. 

Accomplished  15.10 Cork 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Lightly-raced filly. Good second of 12 in maiden at Gowran (7f, good, 9/2) 27 days ago. The one to beat under Billy Lee.

Oops another double ..... pair of 11\10's  :unsure

Sunningdale 15.27 Catterick 1 Pt Win @ 10\11 (bog)

Lightly-raced colt who took a step forward when runner-up (clear of rest) in a Lingfield nursery in August. Filled same spot in a stronger race at Ascot (7f) since and looks the one to beat.

Heer at Dawn 14.35 Bellewstown 1 Pt Win @ 7\2 (bog)

Creditable 1¾ lengths second of 14 to Caesar's Comet in handicap (4/1) at this course (7.8f, good) 35 days ago. Can go well again.

1st @ Evens & 6th yesterday

Secret Solace 15.09 Salisbury 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Promising individual. 50/1, third of 14 in novice event at Newbury (7f, good) on debut 13 days ago. That was a pretty deep race and she's open to plenty of progress. 

Princess Sophia 14.25 Clonmel 1 Pt Win @ 5\2 (bog)

Below form sixth of 11 in novice hurdle (20/1) at Kilbeggan (16f, good) 27 days ago. Back up in trip. Makes handicap hurdle debut. Likely to improve given bumper form.

1st @ 3\1 & 6th today

Soul Icon 14.15 Fontwell 1 Pt WIn @ 15\8 (bog)

Has proved a different proposition since switched to handicaps, making it 5 wins from 6 starts over C&D last month. Still progressing and should take the beating again. 

Lady Skipper 18.30 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 7\1 (bog)

Hooded for 1st time, not seen to best effect when ninth of 14 in nursery at Down Royal (7f, good to firm, 11/1) 28 days ago. Makes polytrack debut. Not taken lightly.

1st @ 15\8 & 5th yesterday

Special Buddy 16.20 Fontwell 1 Pt Win @ Evens (bog)

Finally opened his account at the eleventh attempt over fences at Plumpton (19.8f) recently. 5 lb rise tolerable and a reproduction of that effort would surely make him hard to beat here.

Walking On Glass 15.27 Gowran Park 1 Pt Win @ 7\1 (bog)

Useful effort to 6-runner maiden chase at Ballinrobe (23f, good) 22 days ago. Respected back hurdling off what looks a workable mark.

3rd & 1st @ 7\1 :$ yesterday

Aucunrisque 14.18 Uttoxeter 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Won 4 times over hurdles last season, including the Grade 2 Dovecote at Kempton, and a Plumpton handicap to round off the campaign. Tough and likeable sort should make a chaser and he should give a bold show. 

Final Orders 16.30 Killarney 1 Pt Win @ 6\5 (bog)

Fair chaser. 1 win from 3 runs this season. Second of 12 in novice chase at Downpatrick (17.8f, good, 10/3) on debut over fences 16 days ago. Back up in trip and he's a big player.

Double Up .... 1st @ 11\10 & Evens

Laurentia 18.30 Wolves 1 Pt Win @ 6\5 (bog)

C&D winner. Improved on recent efforts to win 15-runner handicap at Chelmsford City (8f, 12/1) 18 days ago. Well treated on best form and good claims again. 

Union Park 16.40 Tipperary 1 Pt Win @ 4\1 (bog)

Fair winner at 17f over hurdles. 12/1, creditable sixth of 13 in handicap chase at Killarney (20f, good to soft) 45 days ago, unsuited by way race developed. Expected to be bang there.

4th & 2nd today

Double March 18.30 Southwell 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Twice-raced filly who has shaped well each time, clear second of 5 in minor event at Haydock (8f, firm) 32 days ago, running on. Sets a good standard. 

Jon Snow 15.00 Galway 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Useful hurdler who opened account in this sphere when taking 8-runner novice at Killarney (23f, good to soft, 11/10) 46 days ago, cosily. Should be more to come.

1st @ 2\1 & 5th today

Supreme King 18.25 Kempton 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Runner-up on debut and better form when occupying same spot in 18-runner maiden (11/2) at Goodwood (6f) next start. Possibly found a third run in less than a month one too many at Leicester last time and he's worth another chance after a 2-month break. 

Maristella 16.10 Navan 1 Pt Win @ 5\2 (bog)

Thrice-raced winner. 1 win from 3 runs this year. Won 17-runner handicap (4/1) at Galway (8.6f, soft) 29 days ago, keeping on well. Should have more to offer.

2nd & 1st @ 5\2 today

Northern Bound 13.40 Warwick 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Good strike rate over fences and took his form to a new level when scoring easily at Bangor over this trip from Fat Sam 6 weeks ago. Could be up to defying 7 lb rise. 

Dark Vega 16.20 Thurles 1 Pt Win @ 3\1 (bog)

7/2 and cheekpieces on for 1st time, creditable second of 13 in handicap at Punchestown (9f, good to soft) 23 days ago, finishing well having had plenty to do entering straight. Unexposed at this trip and she's one to be interested in.

2nd & 6th today

Sacred 15.00 Newmarket 1 pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Classy 3-y-o, successful in the Nell Gwyn and the Hungerford Stakes. Looked in danger of becoming disappointing but back on track with a bang dropped to listed company when an easy winner at Newbury 3 weeks ago. The one to beat on these terms. 

Clonbury Bridge 16.50 Downpatrick 1 Pt Win @ 6\5 (bog)

Fairly useful chaser. Good second of 9 in novice chase at Sligo (21.2f, good to soft, 14/1) 23 days ago. The one to beat.

Griggy 20.00 Chelmsford 1 Pt Win @ 2\1 (bog)

3-time C&D winner, successful in 10-runner handicap (3/1) here 9 days ago. Can complete the hat-trick. 

Grand Roi 14.45 Fairyhouse 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Smart hurdler who ran a bit below that level sent chasing when second of 5 at Listowel (17f, good) 19 days ago. Should improve for the experience, especially now back up in trip.

2nd & Faller yesterday

Lumacho 15.25 Southwell 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Successful on her first 2 starts in nurseries. Narrowly denied the hat-trick when second of 8 in similar event at Yarmouth (5.2f, good, 15/8) 14 days ago. Makes tapeta debut. Leading contender.

Makanah 15.10 Musselburgh 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Smart gelding who arrives in good nick, sixth of 19 in Portland Handicap at Doncaster (5.6f, good to soft) 29 days ago. Took this event in 2020 and is very much one to consider for his in-form yard. 

Clemmie C 13.50 Killarney 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Lightly-raced filly. 16/1, good fourth of 14 in handicap at Dundalk (10.7f) 17 days ago. Back down in trip. Leading claims.

Double Up today 1st @ 6\4 & 13\8

Times Are Blue 13.35 Hereford 1 Pt Win @ Evens (bog)

Champs Elysees gelding who did well to overcome both inexperience and the run of the race when making a winning debut in bumper at Plumpton in May. Obvious claims switched to hurdles. 

Molly's Mango 17.10 Punchestown 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

€75,000 3-y-o, Clovis Du Berlais filly. Half-sister to bumper winner Kracka Nut. Dam unraced half-sister to top-class hurdler/very smart chaser (stayed 3¼m) More of That. Appealing newcomer for top yard.

2nd & 3rd last Tuesday

Master Malachy 15.02 Market Rasen 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Dual 2m hurdle winner this summer who is already a better chaser, winning at Bangor and Sedgefield in recent months. Not helped by a bad mistake mid-race when only third of 4 back at Sedgefield latest. Capable of bouncing back. 

Peking Opera 14.05 Leopardstown 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Promising sort. Second of 11 in maiden (4/1) at Naas (7f, good to soft) on debut 30 days ago. Yard having good spell. Open to improvement.

PU & 1st @ 6\5 yesterday

Go On Chez 17.10 Kempton 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Won his first 5 starts over fences. Has met with defeat last twice but he would pushed the winner close for an uncharacteristic late mistake at Bangor in August. Undergone a second wind op since. Leading claims. 

Fan De Blues 16.50 Cork 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

7/2, career best when winning 5-runner minor event chase at Ballinrobe (17f, good) 55 days ago, going with enthusiasm. Seemed to have improved there and might be well in returning to handicaps.

Vino Victrix 14.35 Pontefract 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Back to winning ways at Goodwood (2m) in August and ran a cracker when runner-up to Irish raider Run For Oscar in the Cesarewitch 9 days ago. Rates a big player with a repeat.

4th yesterday

Glittering Lights 13.55 Yarmouth 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Foaled March 29. Kingman filly. Half-sister to smart 1¼m/11f winner Marching Army and 1¼m winner Show Lights. One to note on debut. 

Engagement Ring 16.35 Gowran Park 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Thrice-raced filly. 18/1 and blinkered for 1st time, fourth of 9 in maiden at Killarney (11.2f, soft) 17 days ago. Stable in good form. Leading claims.

3rd & 2nd yesterday

Paspaley 17.30 Kempton 1 Pt Win @ 2\1 (bog)

Promising type. 11/5, ran to a similar level as on debut when fifth of 15 in maiden at Newbury (6f, good) 33 days ago, looked after once held. In top hands and he should still improve. 

Blues Emperor 15.55 Navan 1 Pt Win @ 11\4 (bog)

Promising individual. 13/8, won 16-runner maiden at Listowel (8f, good to soft) 27 days ago, responding well. Up in trip. Open to further improvement and makes plenty of appeal.

Sir Winston 17.10 Wolverhampton 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Promising type. 5/4, still rough around the edges but shaped encouragingly when third of 8 in handicap at Leicester (7f, good to firm) 16 days ago. Expected to be bang there from same mark. 

King Ferdinand 14.35 Thurles 1 Pt Win @ 9\4 (bog)

Promising sort. First run since leaving Tom Lacey when second of 7 in novice chase at Killarney (23f, good to soft, 18/1) on debut over fences 18 days ago. Makes handicap chase debut.

5th & 1st @ 10\3 yesterday

First Officer 16.38 Doncaster 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Off the mark in a Salisbury handicap (1½m, good to firm) for Roger Varian in June, and improved when making a winning start for new connections back at this trip at Nottingham (heavy) recently. 8 lb rise tolerable and he's a big player. 

Bois De Clamart 13.50 Sligo 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Useful hurdler. Career best when winning 14-runner handicap hurdle at Cork (19f, heavy, 5/1), soon clear. Off 6 months. Leading claims if returning in similar form. 

Year 6




Think I might need a bit of a miracle to turn it around in Year 6 for GB. Still hanging in there with an overall profit in GB of 1.5% (the only highlight)
