The latest selections
Carmela 0.5pt EW 22/1 4 places (205 Chester) – Won at the first time of asking on debut last year and followed that up with a string of very decent efforts in some pretty hot company throughout the season. Will need to be ready here today as this will be a fast run race but it could well just be set up by the early pace for this one who is drawn well and could well close late with a little bit of stamina in her pedigree. Ground a bit of an unknown but shouldn’t be beyond her if its not too soft.
California Gem 1pt win only 15/2 (345 Chester) – Another one who has the benefit of a good draw today and will likely be up with the pace from the word go. Gets ideal conditions and any extra rain will only be of further help. Will likely come on for her latest run at Pontefract and ought to have a race like this in the lock up on the basis of what she has achieved to date.
San Isidro 0.5pt EW 33/1 4 places general (455 Chester) – Has barely beaten a rival home in 5 starts since joining this yard and has fallen a massive 20lb in the weights before today as a result. Has possibly not been seen to his best as yet however and is of far more interest returning from a break today and getting what look to be ideal conditions for the first time since leaving France over the right sort of trip. Outsider of the field but could well put in an improved performance today, however he will need to to be involved.
Mister Tickle 1pt win only 14/1 (615 Fontwell) – Another one who has fallen down the weights as a result of some pretty shoddy performances over the past 12 months but has on occasion offered glimmers of hope that the old boy is still in there if in the right mood. Completed a hat trick with 2 of the 3 wins coming over CD 18 months ago and the latter of those wins came from a 14lb higher mark than today’s. Conditions look ideal should they be as advertised and the drop back in grade today from this mark could provide the answers. Gets a valuable 5lb taken off and is one who shouldn’t be written off given the yard that he comes from at this track.
Forest Jump 1pt win only 5/1 (715 Fontwell) – Very low mileage sort who was due to run a few weeks back until the yard pulled all of their runners that day due to unsuitable conditions. We had him tipped up that day and have been waiting to see him declared again following a good run in his last race 72 days ago, a race that has worked out very well since. Step up in trip should be a positive and looks to be one ahead of his mark now getting ideal trip/conditions.
An Marcach 1pt win only 14/1 (745 Fontwell) – Has been largely out of form since joining Dr Newland and is another who has fallen a long way in the weights. Has put in a couple of efforts that make this mark look generous however and if returning from a break here today on song could well just put those recent runs behind him. Trip looks perfect today and the forecast rain over the course of the day should help this ones chances.
