ASCOT 2-35

ILE DE RE….+12
CAPE EXPRESS….+11
RAYA STAR….+10
WAR SINGER….+8
TED SPREAD….+8
IT’S A GIMME….-2
PAINTBALL….-6
NAMPOUR….-14
STARLUCK….-15
CHANGING THE GUARD….-17
CLARET CLOAK….-19
MONTE CAVALLO….-20
STREET ENTERTAINER….-24
FIENDISH FLAME….-25
DELPHI MOUNTAIN….-30

THREE TO DUTCH – ILE DE RE, RAYA STAR, WAR SINGER
20/80 – RAYA STAR
EXOTICS – ILE DE RE, RAYA STAR, WAR SINGER
LAY – NONE

ADVICE – I have going concerns regarding CAPE EXPRESS, which is why he has been dropped from the three I’ll work with. I also have a slight concern about the form of the McCain yard, too and because of that RAYA STAR gets my 20/80 vote. A previous course and distance winner, running for a stable on blob with the going not an issue, he’ll do for me.

ASCOT 3-10

ROBERTO GOLDBACK….+12
MATUHI….+9
POQUELIN….+8
CANNINGTON BROOK….+8
DUKE OF LUCCA….-6
JOIN TOGETHER….-7
ACE HIGH….-9
BAILE ANRAI….-15
FRISCO DEPOT….-25
LE BEAU BAI….-25
MOSTLY BOB….-25
ALFIE SPINNER….-32
NATAANI….-32
TULLAMORE DEW….-36

THREE TO DUTCH – MATUHI, POQUELIN, JOIN TOGETHER
20/80 – JOIN TOGETHER
EXOTICS – MATUHI, POQUELIN, JOIN TOGETHER
LAY – ACE HIGH

ADVICE – Again my top rated falls down on my having a concern about underfoot conditions. No such problem for the trio I have opted to work with but both MATUNI and POQUELIN have to prove they stay this far…no such worries regarding JOIN TOGETHER though and I’ll play that one 20/80.

ASCOT 3-45

MICHEAL FLIPS….+8
LIDAR….+1
CRIQTONIC….-3
TROOPER CLARENCE….-6
COMEHOMEQUIETLY….-14
PASSATO….-25
KALELLSHAN….-25
PEPITE ROSE….-32
DOCTOR DAVID….-35
SUBLIME TALENT….-40
GUS MACRAE….-40
FALCON ISLAND….-40

THREE TO DUTCH – MICHEAL FLIPS, LIDAR, CRIQTONIC
20/80 – MICHEAL FLIPS
EXOTICS – MICHEAL FLIPS, LIDAR, CRIQTONIC
LAY – NONE

ADVICE – I cannot get anything like a decent grip on the Irish raider, KALELLSHAN so I will keep staking on the low side here. My top rated has trip, track and going all spot on so, with his being clear, he’ll get the single play but this does have the “feel” of a tricky one.

WETHERBY 4-00

DUSKY BOB….+14
LADY KATHLEEN….+11
JETNOVA….+10
BAR DE LIGNE….+8
STOPPED OUT….-6
WILLOW’S SAVIOUR….-7
SIMONSIDE….-13
GOLDAN JESS….-13
TRUSTAN TIMES….-18
TERENZIUM….-18
TRIP THE LIGHT….-25
ROCK RELIEF….-26
RIVER DRAGON….-32
COLEBROOKE….-40
LITTLE HERCULES….-40

THREE TO DUTCH – DUSKY BOB, LADY KATHLEEN, JETNOVA
20/80 – DUSKY BOB
EXOTICS – DUSKY BOB, LADY KATHLEEN, JETNOVA
LAY – SIMONSIDE

ADVICE – The only race I have for rating at Wetherby and I have to say, I’m happy with my figures. If the winner is outside my top six races I’ll be disappointed….and poorer.

AYR 1-35

SAMMY SPIDERMAN….+8
SACRE TOI….+2
TUTCHEC….-5
SOUL ANGEL….-19
SECRET DESERT….-25
WHAT A DREAM….-26
WHY ARE YOU ASKING….-30

TWO TO DUTCH – SAMMY SPIDERMAN, SACRE TOI
20/80 – SAMMY SPIDERMAN
EXOTICS – SAMMY SPIDERMAN, SACRE TOI
LAY – NONE

ADVICE – I am trying to organise my diary to enable us to take a trip up to meet James Ewart on the 14th….he opens up his new gallops and Michael Dickinson is flying over from America to do the official unveiling. I also want to speak to him about him training for the 500 Club in Scotland so, I wish him luck with SACRE TOI, here. He trades short on the tissue and six spots behind my top rated, who trades second best in the market. That suggests my figures are bang on and I’ll play them exactly as they have fallen.

AYR 2-10

DELIGHTFULLY….-13
SHANROE SOCIETY….-20
SPRUZZO….-23
PYJAMA GAME….-27
DAASIJ….-35
SOLIS….-36
ISLA PATRIOT….-37
WOODYS BROTHER….-40
CHARMING KNIGHT….-40
SOLWAY BROOK….-40

THREE TO DUTCH – DELIGHTFULLY, SHANROE SOCIETY, SPRUZZO
20/80 – DELIGHTFULLY
EXOTICS – DELIGHTFULLY, SHANROE SOCIETY, SPRUZZO
LAY – NONE

ADVICE – The worst race today and it will be played as it has fallen, to very low staking. My top rated is the only horse in this event having previously won on soft but what that amounts to would not exactly be much of anything.

AYR 2-45

BEAU DANDY….+8
ET MAINTENANT….+1
THE HOLLINWELL….-6
KINGSMOSS….-10
OVERQUEST….-13
STRONGHAVEN….-18
HEEZ A STEEL….-20

TWO TO DUTCH – BEAU DANDY, ET MAINTENANT
20/80 – BEAU DANDY
EXOTICS – BEAU DANDY, ET MAINTENANT
LAY – NONE

ADVICE – Top pairing agin fit the bill and with my top rated having proven himself over this trip previously….here….and back on easier ground, I’ll quite happily work with the numbers.

AYR 3-20

PROSECCO….+9
DIAMOND FRONTIER….+2
BENE LAD….-7
REALT MOR….-10
CHARINGWORTH….-10
SAVIERO….-19
BOCCIANI….-21
KUDU COUNTRY….-26

THREE TO DUTCH – PROSECCO, DIAMOND FRONTIER, BENE LAD
20/80 – PROSECCO
EXOTICS – PROSECCO, DIAMOND FRONTIER, BENE LAD
LAY – NONE

ADVICE – REALT MOR is considered to have bundles of ability but, he does look brittle. He may well start to produce the goods this season but until he does that, he’s got the figure he has. PROSECCO loves this track, three times a winner here, once over CD. The going is not an issue (it might be for the favourite) and all in all, I have to put faith in my figures.

AYR 3-50

UBALTIQUE….+11
UN GUET APENS….+8
KEALIGOLANE….+8
TAP NIGHT….-3
LADY BLUESKY….-12
AUENSCHUTZE….-17

TWO TO DUTCH – UBALTIQUE, UN GUET APENS
20/80 – UBALTIQUE
EXOTICS – UBALTIQUE, UN GUET APENS
LAY – NONE

ADVICE – I pity the poor commentator here! Interesting that Donald McCain sends just one here this afternoon and if my figures are right, that 400+ mile round trip will bear fruit. I’m of a mind this will be run at a fair clip and fitness will mean a lot so, hopefully the McCain yard finds that form today.
