Today’s Preview 10/05/17

Two meetings to look through today and it would be very nice to replicate the results of Monday.

I’ll go through each race on the card in turn and later this afternoon you will have Bath to come back to.

1-50 – STELLAR GROUP LILY AGNES CONDITIONS STAKES (PLUS 10 RACE) (Class 2) (2yo) Winner £12,450 11 runners 5f15y Good ITV4

Never easy working on juvenile races but here it’s usually safe to simply look low drawn runners trading in the first five on the tissue that have already seen a racecourse this season.

The only qualifier on those counts is YOGI’S GIRL and whilst I won’t bet this race myself, I’d see her hitting the frame at the very least.

2-25 – ARKLE FINANCE CHESHIRE OAKS (FOR THE ROBERT SANGSTER MEMORIAL CUP) (LISTED RACE) (Class 1) (3yo) Winner £34,026 7 runners 1m3f75y Good ITV4

A small field of just seven, two of which have no chance at all if everything is “right”.

Six of the last 10 favourites have won this and Aiden O’Brien has saddled the last two winners….and has won this no fewer than five times in the last nine years.

He saddles today’s favourite ALLURINGLY and I’ll not be looking elsewhere for my winner.

POST RACING PREVIEW SELECTION: ALLURINGLY – STRAIGHT WIN

3-00 – BOODLES DIAMOND HANDICAP (Class 2) (4yo+) Winner £18,675 10 runners 5f15y Good ITV4

3-35 – 188BET CHESTER CUP HANDICAP (Class 2) (4yo+) Winner £73,908 17 runners 2m2f140y Good ITV4

PROFILED RACE. PLEASE REFER TO THE PROFILING SECTION ON THE WEBSITE

4-05 – SPORTING INDEX HANDICAP (Class 3) (3yo) Winner £9,960 8 runners 1m4f63y Good RUK

The horse I recently added to the 20 to Follow list, STRADIVARIUS, runs here but it’s a fact Gosden has run five in this over the last 10 years and none has won, only one has placed.

Only two of the last 10 favourites have won this too so that’s a double whammy for the Gosden runner.

The race has gone to a horse trading in the front three on the tissue in seven of the last 10 but if we say, based on the poor record of the favourite, that it’s the other pair we concentrate on, then one of AL ZARAM or TEODORO wins this.

They trade 6.4 and 7 behind the 2.88 STRADIVARIUS and I’m going to dutch that pair to hopefully make a profit.

POST RACING PREVIEW SELECTION: DUTCH TEODORO/AL ZARAM

DEEPBRIDGE CAPITAL MAIDEN STAKES (PLUS 10 RACE) (Class 3) (3yo) Winner £8,715 9 runners 1m2f70y Good RUK

I was going to nail my colours to the horse trading favourite here, MUTARABBY but, that one has been pulled so, with my knowing the market has had this spot on (seven of the last 10 favourites have won this), I’m now running with MECCABAH.

POST RACING PREVIEW SELECTION: MECCABAH STRAIGHT WIN

ADARIS GLOBAL FOREIGN EXCHANGE HANDICAP (Class 4) (4yo+) Winner £7,470 13 runners 7f1y Good RUK

BATH

The meeting tonight is completely falling apart and I have no intention whatsoever of putting anything up for this meeting.

They have, currently, 39 runners going racing across seven races and start with a three runner race.

I’ll take the dogs for a walk.
