The latest selections

Nap: Pocket The Profit 1pt win only 11/2 (245 Catterick) – 5 wins from just 16 runs with 2 of those wins coming on the soft ground he will encounter today. Has won over 7f on soft too so that is no worry here either. Has been eased in grade today which could help him get back to winning ways for this very smart yard, who do well with their runners up in the North. Kevin Stott takes the ride and he has a 34% strike for this trainer.

Nb: Glory Fighter 1pt win only 10/1 (350 Catterick) – Dropping in grade here today and despite mainly campaigning over the minimum 5f trip, he has shown some promise over this slightly longer trip in the past. Lesser exposed over this trip and could offer more here today. Weighted to go close if in the mood today and has won on soft ground previously. Yard are 7 from 22 here in the last 12 months for a 31% strike and G Lee has a LSP of +42 over that same period when riding for them.

IWAC: Spyfall 1pt win only 12/1 (425 Catterick) – Has failed to progress from an impressive debut but it is still early days for this likeable sort who sits on a mark that he is very capable of taking advantage of if the yard have managed to put him right over his 2 month absence from the track. Tongue strap is tried for the first time which could help this one to see out his races.

Saturday Selections

Too Friendly 1pt win only 13/2 (437 Chepstow) – The first runner from our 50 to follow which you can find towards the bottom of the page. Was 5th off today’s mark in the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival and has been wrapped up following an average performance at Aintree a month later. Will need to be ready after that lay off with some stiff competition coming from the likes of Saint Segal, Impulsive One and Bagheera Ginge who we feel could be the main danger but out to be capable in a race of this magnitude. Gets ideal conditions and went well at this time of year last season.

Baby Zeus 1pt win only (340 Newmarket) – Willie Mullins has won this race on 3 of the last 4 running’s and saddle the runner up last term who went under today’s jockey. Of his runners in the race today we feel that this is his best chance so given how serious the yard have taken this race in recent years we have to have a little go. Has performed very well over 1m 4f and is one to note stepping up in trip here today.

Masters Legacy 1pt win only 6/1 (402 Chepstow) – A race of keen interest and one that could provide a few clues to Haydock’s Stayers Hurdle next month. Phillip Hobbs takes this race pretty seriously and has one in the lineup that won on the card last term when making his return. His season ended with a bit of a whimper following a positive start and i have a feeling he will be thereabouts here today. Sits on that last winning mark and gets ideal conditions.

Saturday Selections from #Ascot #Newmarket #Redcar


The latest selections

Crystal Estrella 1pt win only 10/1 Skybet money back as cash offer ( 131 Newmarket) – A comfortable maiden winner back in May on soft ground over today’s trip so has the answers already to a couple of the questions being asked of some of her rivals. Will need to be ready off of a near 5 month layoff but this yard is more than capable of getting one right. Yard won the race in 2018 and could have one that is way ahead of her current mark here.

Canoodled 1pt win only 5/1 (503 Newmarket) – Consistent performer who won this race last term from a 1lb higher mark. Seems to enjoy it around here judged on her two runs at the track to date and has a massive pull in the weights today with the re opposing favorite Tarrabb who is some 13lb worse off here and that’s without Saffie Osbourne’s 3lb claim. Conditions also look ideal.

Nap: Lady Mojito 1pt win only 9/2 (136 Redcar) – Arrives here on the back of a very encouraging debut for the yard that took this race in 2019 and 2020. Was only beaten that day by a couple of above average sorts who had experieced the track before. Should be open to plenty of improvement for that run and todays conditions will suit.

Iwac: Jumbeau 1pt win only 11/1 (321 Redcar) – Absent since finishing 5th in what has turned out to be a fairly strong renewal of the Windsor Castle at Ascot back in June. Was a winner at the first time of asking and that layoff has not deterred us too much today. Looks almost certain to be suited by today’s step up in trip and it will most likely bring about some improvement too. Yard have been in decent nick lately and we are hopeful of a big run.

Nnb: Tis Marvellous 1pt win only 11/2 ( 151 Ascot) – Already has 4 course wins to his name including a win in this race last term. This unique track seems to get the best tune out of this Clive Cox trained veteran in this sphere and another bold bid can be expected. Today’s easing conditions and a return to Ascot ought to be enough to bring about a reversal in the Newbury form with today’s favorite Manaccan.

Nb: Commanche Falls 1pt win only 13/2 (300 Ascot) – Better than ever this term but will need to prove himself away from handicap company for the first time and also on this unique undulating track. Has done very little wrong when having to give weight away in some very hot company this year and runs right through the line each time. Yard won this race for these connections in 2020 and we fancy them to do so again with this tough as teak individual.

Sunday Selections from #Epsom #FfosLas #Yarmouth


The latest selections

Iwac: Winklevi 1pt win only 16/1 (350 Ffos Las) – Been very hit and miss of late and will need to improve on recent form. As a result however he now sits 11lb below his last winning mark and it wouldn’t take much to spark a revival. Yard is a shrewd one and they have a 25% strike here in the last 12 months.

Outsider: Twilight Prince 1pt win only 22/1 (423 Ffos Las) – Still a maiden after 13 runs but has pieces of form in the book that suggest he could get involved at a price here today. Now 3lb lower than his best run at Bath in June when only narrowly denied. First time cheekpieces applied and hopefully they will help to focus him in putting his best foot forward today.

Nap: V Twelve 1pt win only 8/1 (455 Ffos Las) – Has made pleasing progress in 3 runs so far and ought to have something to offer here on handicap debut. His latest run was in a race that is starting to work out pretty well and despite being a well beaten 3rd that day he had put enough daylight between him and the rest of the field to suggest that today’s opening mark is very workable.

Nb: Kit Gabriel 1pt win only 12/1 (505 Epsom) – A clearly talented but tricky sort who has been very hard to catch right. When seen running up to his best is easily capable of taking a race like this and we are hoping the addition of the blinkers today can help focus his efforts. Was very disappointing last time out but had previously run a big race in second having been gelded.

Churchill Rose 1pt win only 14/1 (259 Yarmouth) – Appealing pedigree and related to some fairly useful sorts, most notably Carnachy. Dam was also pretty decent and a winner up to 1 mile from marks of 90+. Yard does well enough with their 2 year old’s and a bold bid can be expected. Hood on for first run, any support would be encouraging.

Saturday’s Selections from #Chester #Haydock #Newmarket #Ripon


The latest selections

NAP: Wowzers 1pt win only 17/2 (315 Haydock) – Ran a little too keenly tried over 7f for the first time and failed to see out his race. Looks of more interest today dropped back down in trip having finished 2nd in two races previously that have both turned out winners since. Still looks fairly lightly raced and should still have more to offer. Ground a slight worry but there’s plenty in the breeding to suggest he should cope with a bit of cut.

Melody Of Life 1pt win only 15/2 (215 Chester) – Previous course winner who drops back in grade slightly having put in a big effort in a very competitive race last time out. Has some pretty decent form in the book this term in defeat and is well worth another try at this current mark in what looks a wide open race. Not the best of draws today but will enjoy the conditions unlike some of his rivals today.

Pub Crawl 1pt win only 11/2 (400 Chester) – A persistent runner up who is yet to get his head in front in 11 starts. Has more than held his own however against opposition that are possibly a little stronger than those in today’s field. Best run to date was his latest when upped in trip to 1m 6f which he will again face today and has to be given another chance. Drawn well enough to get a good position and should go well again.

Rhythm 1pt win only 10/1 (125 Ripon) – Bit of a risky proposition on current form but has been given a big chance by the handicapper who has given her an extra 5lb of leeway today. Add into that todays marked drop in grade and you suddenly have yourself a more interesting candidate. Hard to discount and looks a very tempting price.

Leodis Dream 1pt win only 10/1 (310 Ripon) – It’s been 3 years since this one managed to get his head in front so is another that comes with plenty of risk attached. Has knocked very loudly on the door this season however and went very close at York in July from today’s mark. This once 100+ rated horse still looks like there is a win in there and today will have no excuses.

Eastern Empress 1pt win only 9/1 (130 Haydock) – A well-bred newcomer from the John Gosden yard who won this race in its first two running’s back in 2017 and 2018. She is a half-sister to several winners including a couple of smart sorts and looks a very likely type for this race today.

IWAC: Absoloute Dream 1pt win only 15/2 (510 Chester) – His 3 wins this term have put him well and truly on the radar of the handicapper and he has risen 12lb in the weights already for those successes. Has a very valuable 5lb taken off today however and we do not think he is done winning just yet. Fairly comfortable winner at Doncaster last time out and his previous run in behind Brazen Bolt would hint that this mark still holds a little in hand given how that race has panned out since.

NB: Amazing £5 win only (415 Newmarket) B365 FREE BET on any race at Newmarket Very well bred and well related filly who goes here for a yard who hold an excellent record in the race having won it 3 times in the last 10 years, including last year and each time it has been with a newcomer. Yard also come here in excellent form having completed a 7 timer last Saturday and is one that would be foolish to overlook. Yard have a 24% strike with juveniles on turf this term too which is a stand out stat today.

Sunday’s Selections from #Hamilton


The latest selections

Nb: Miss Bella Brand 1pt win only 7/1 (200 Hamilton) – Very consistent this term and sure to give you another good run for your money today. Put in a very decent looking run last time out when stepped up to this grade and pulled well clear of 3rd place that day. Winner was certainly a bit of a handicap blot and another chance can be given here with the hope that the ease in ground will suit and bring out a little more as breeding suggests.

Nap: Baileys Liberty 1pt win only 12/1 (300 Hamilton) – Likes to lead but is looking a little exposed over 7f and is failing to see out his races. This drop back to 6f here looks like a good shout with the ground likely to draw the sting out of any closers in the pack. Cheekpieces back on today too which have in the past been a big help.

Iwac: Burtonlodge Beauty 1pt win only 9/1 (330 Hamilton) – CD winner here 2 runs back and worth another try returning here having been given little chance by a poor start at Ayr just 3 days ago. Mark Winn was the winning jockey for that CD win and he is reinstated again today taking off that very valuable 7lb. The win also came on soft ground so no issues there either.

Saturdays Selections from #Newbury #Ayr


The latest selections

NB: Exoplanet 1pt win only 15/2 (110 Newbury) – Respected newcomer for last year’s winning connections. Holds a Derby entry and has to be taken far more seriously than the odds on offer here. February foal so should be coming along just nicely and yard should have him just right for this. Roger Varian is in decent form of late and has a fair record with his newcomers too.

NAP: Stay Alert 1pt win only 8/1 (140 Newbury) – Lightly raced 3 year old who has acquitted herself very well in some very good looking company this year. Was only beaten by the now G1 winner Nashwa over the slightly shorter trip of 10f and followed that up with a Listed win over the same CD shortly after in a race where the runner up won next time out too. Was not disgraced thrown in at the deep end last time out at Haydock and is worth another try here on better ground.

Mitbaahy 1pt win only 13/2 (215 Newbury) – Very progressive this term up until his latest run at Goodwood. Was slowly away that day and struggled to get back on terms so is easily forgiven that run. Previously had took big strides forward when winning a Listed event in good style at Sandown and only being narrowly denied stepped up again in a G3 at the same track. Looked unlucky not to win that day and is given another chance for the in form Roger Varian.

OUTSIDER: Stay Well 0.5pt EW 16/1 (325 Newbury) – Started the season well with back to back seconds at Kempton and Redcar but disappointed when stepped up in trip at Royal Ascot. Looked on the wrong side of the draw that day and was pushed along early doors on ground that wasn’t ideal at a track he clearly doesn’t get along with. On his two previous visits to Ascot he finished last of 14 and 9th of 10 so you could say the latest 9th of 18 was a step up. Goes well fresh and has been given 3 months off so a very interesting contender off the same mark that saw him give the Goodwood Chesterfield Cup winner a good run.

IWAC: Enforced 1pt win only 7/1 (435 Newbury) – Dual winner over 8f earlier in the season and has run creditably upped in trip on his last two outings. Will need to find a little more but this is a slight drop back in class today and he has been eased in the weights a couple of pounds too. Steps up again in trip today which is worth a try having stayed on well in his last two runs and improvement could not be ruled out.

OUTSIDER: Rainbow Fire 0.5pt EW 25/1 6 places B365 (510 Newbury) – Bit of a wildcard but looked promising in a couple of AW runs for John Gosden last term having been off the track for over 500 days before being sold for just 35,000 Gns and moving to Marco Botti. Doesn’t look overly well treated from his current mark but if ready to roll following 6 months in new hands could have plenty to offer back down in trip running on turf for the first time since his sole career win at Newmarket back in 2020. Slight drop in grade from last run but has plenty of questions to answer hence the 25/1 price.

Cassy O £5 win only @12/1 (445 Ayr) Bet365 Free bet on any race at Ayr – Now 8lb lower than his latest win back in June. Has not been in the same form since however and will need to find a spark from somewhere. Ran here Thursday over the mile but was badly hampered and can be forgiven that run. Turned out quickly, and was 4th at this September meeting last year from 13lb higher so plenty of encouragement for a shrewd yard.

3 Big priced selections for Friday


The latest selections

Iwac: Bollin Margaret 0.5pt EW 20/1 3 places B365 (153 Haydock) – Looks up against it on current form and with a few potential well bred sorts here today but is taking a drop in grade from a very tempting mark and is back in fillies only company again here, company in which 4 of her victories to date have come in so cannot be taken too lightly despite the bare look of this race.

Nap: Never Dark 0.5pt EW 18/1 (338 Haydock) – Only narrowly touched off by Ginger Jam in a surprise return to form at Carlisle 2 runs back and despite the flop last time out cannot be ruled out here in the hands of the talented Zac Wheatley who takes off 5lb today. Was only collared late on at Carlisle and todays track could suit those front running tactics well.

Nb: Danielsflyer 0.5pt EW 18/1 (401 Newcastle) – Previous CD winner having just a second run for new trainer D Thompson. Latest run can be ignored and better should be expected making a return to the AW. Mark has fallen to a very temting one now and this 7f at Newcastle could be just the ticket to getting back on track. 11lb below last winning mark and 8lb below that CD win so cannot be dismissed in the hands of Clifford Lee who has an LSP of +44 riding for the yard.

Bank Holiday Selections from #Chepstow #Cartmel #Epsom


The latest selections

NB: Ornate 1pt win only 12/1 (210 Southwell) – 3 wins and 3 placed efforts from 11 runs over CD and although recent form figures do not read that well this veteran can still have a hand to play back at this track. The surface here has changed since those wins but he put in a decent effort to finish just 3/4 length back in 4th at the end of January. That run came in a class 4 race from a mark of 82 and the return here today in a class 5 from 68 is too tempting to leave alone. Decent draw too.

IWAC: Nick Lost 1pt win only 11/1 (214 Cartmel) – Fairly useful sort for H De Bromhead but has not been seen up to the same level since leaving there. Has changed hands again since then and offered a little more encouragement for new yard last time out. Still has plenty to prove but should fare better now back up in trip on decent ground. Yard likes a winner here and it would be no surprise to see this one bounce back to form today. Yard also hold excellent chances with Seddon (3.59 Cartmel)

NAP: Our Sam 1pt win only 11/1 (510 Cartmel) – Lightly raced and still very unexposed. Slightly disappointing over CD last time out on handicap debut but ought to be capable of better as he had shown in a previous run also over CD. Current mark seems a little high but looks the sort that this yard do well with and has to be respected in the hands of Charlotte Jones given her record up North for this shrewd outfit. She has around a 20% strike from over 200 runners for the yard and a very impressive LSP of +214 when riding for them. She is also 12 wins and 5 placed from 30 at the track in the last 12 months for a 40% strike which is very hard to ignore.

LONGSHOT: Craic At Dawn 1pt win only 16/1 (331 Chepstow) – Well beaten on both starts for his new yard this term and a change of fortune is needed. Gets the application of blinkers for the first time and in steps Hollie Doyle to take the ride. The other horse we like the chance of in this race was Afta Party who we would imagine Hollie would have had the options on so interesting then to see her take this ride. Bit of a wildcard but worth a chance at huge odds.

LONGSHOT: Furzig 0.5pt EW 22/1 4places B365 (350 Epsom) – A 3 times winner last term who is yet to fire this term. Today’s assignment looks much easier than recent ones and from a mark that is 6lb lower than his last win back in September we have to take a chance. Was not beaten far at Ripon 2 runs back and could well get back on track in this very winnable contest.
