Missthecuddles 1pt win only 9/2 (425New) Nap

Still a maiden after 9 runs but remains unexposed in comparison to most of her rivals here. Will be suited by this step up in trip today and looks weighted to reverse the form with todays favourite Forchena. Has been holding her form well enough in races that are starting to work out recently and is still open to a little improvement. Max Kendrick takes over in the saddle which is a big positive around here too.

Wentworth Falls 1pt win only 11/1 (250Red) Iwac

Been running consistently well in very competitive handicaps this term that was until he put in a stinker last time out. Is turned out quickly again here however and is dangerously well weighted too, some 6lb below his last winning mark. Needs to bounce back but is back in the blinkers today which could make a difference.

She’s A Deva 1pt win only 9/1 (325Red) Nb

Still a maiden after 11 runs but has managed to place 4 times including once here over CD. That run over CD can be upgraded slightly too as she ran that day from an almost impossible draw in stall 15 of 16. Gets a much better draw today and goes effectively 4lb better off at the weights than that day so must go close once more.

Trinity Star 0.5pt EW 16/1 (510Red) Outsider

One from the tracker who made eye-catching late headway despite running into bags of trouble at a critical point in the race. Would have finished much closer if not for the trouble in running that day and is worth another try here stepped up slightly in trip which on the basis of how he finished last time out should suit.

Wishful Dreaming 1pt win only 15/2 (415Cart) Iwac

Veteran who has fallen down the weights as a result of a few poor performances. Has ran with a lot more promise however in his latest two outings and that offers hope that there is another win in there from around this current mark. Todays drop back in trip will suit and gets the visor applied for the first time which could just sharpen him up a little. Yard have a good record here with 10 winners from 43 runners (23% strike) and are profitable to follow too with an LSP of +42

Internationaldream 0.5pt EW 25/1 4 places Skybet (705Donc) Outsider

A first try over the 7F trip and well worth a small punt EW with 4 places available. Despite this ones breeding suggesting he will be an out and out sprinter he has always shaped as though he would appreciate this extra furlong. All his wins to date have come over 6f and he has more often than not been doing his best work at the business end. Not really got into his last two races but had previously put in a big run on reappearance at Pontefract. Eased a couple of pounds and not without chance over this slightly longer trip.

Clemento 1pt win only 6/1 (130Mar) Nap

Looks to be sitting on a dangerous mark on the evidence of his yard debut but has not been too inspiring in his latest couple of runs. Comes here with the yard bang in form having 6 winners from their last 19 runners and has the help today of the value for money claimer Liam Harrison taking off a further 5lb. Plenty in favour today for this lightly raced 7yo.

Crimson Sand 1pt win only 11/2 (520Newb) Nb

A couple of decent looking wins in Maiden and Novice company at the start of the campaign but has failed to kick on since in a couple of turf handicaps. Worth another try here however stepping up in trip, which on breeding looks a huge positive. Has not been beaten far in his handicap runs so far and eased a pound and dropped markedly in class here looks to be a move that should get this ones head in front. Will no doubt get the typical Jamie Spencer ride and be produced late.

Sound of Iona 1pt win only 8/1 (655Ham) Nb

Returned to form last time out when second at Musselburgh in a similar looking race. Was given far too much to do following a poor jump from the stalls and was unable to get through traffic in time before the race was already away from her. Ran on strongly to finish a closing second and is worth another try sitting some 7lb below her last winning mark. Yard have been in great form lately

East Street Revue 1pt win only 17/2 (225Hay) Iwac

Another one just coming to the boil from a falling mark (7lb below last winning mark). Was a running on 4th over 5f having gone off pretty hard in an awkward looking race that day which gives hope here over this slightly longer and possibly less preferred trip. Open looking race and if able to repeat that last performance should go close again.

Madrinho 1pt win only 8/1 (300Hay) Nap

Second over CD in May beaten only by a progressive looking sort. Was unlucky to be carried left last time out from a very poor draw but finished off his race well enough to suggest that he is worth another try back over this CD. That last race has also worked out pretty well since suggesting that today’s mark is not overly harsh, so with the bang in form Mollie Phillips taking off a further 7lb he looks a tasty proposition in pretty ordinary company.

Four Feet 1pt win only 10/1 (240Chep) Nnb

A 13 race maiden who was a decent 4th in behind a very well treated subsequent winner when last seen. That run was a big improvement on previous runs and that offers some encouragement today dropping back slightly in trip. That race has worked out well since so we have no concerns over today’s mark and running from a few lb’s out of the handicap. Yard have enjoyed a couple of winners recently too.

Our New Buddy 1pt win only 15/2 (720Eps) Nap

Poor run on handicap debut last time out and will need to put that run behind her. Worth another chance however on the form of her reappearance race when a well beaten 2nd in a race that has turned out winners since. On that evidence this current mark is not a harsh one and we could see a better run today in more suitable conditions. Unexposed and open to plenty of improvement.

Knowing 1pt win only 17/2 (750Eps) Iwac

CD winner who can be forgiven his latest run that came in bottomless ground and never got into the race. Back in better conditions today and sitting on his last winning mark. Yard have clearly had to be patient with this one over the past 12 months and hopefully the perseverance will pay off today. Has some decent form in the book if able to bounce back today. Has a bit to prove but so do a few of these and we know on a going day he’s got what it takes for a race like this.

Auckland Lodge 1pt win only 11/1 (130Ham) Nb

Back to back wins for this yard a couple of seasons back before a rather disappointing year last term. As a result of that she finds herself falling in the weights to a very attractive mark. Reappearance run back in May was much needed and put in a much more encouraging run last time out when 4th in a race that is turning out winners. Won’t need to find much more to get involved here today from a reduced mark and in good hands.

Double Court 0.5pt EW 16/1 4 Places (830Worc) Outsider

6lb lower than his last win which came over this trip in similar conditions last summer. Been a bit poor since but did show signs of his old self last time out in a decent looking race at Southwell. Has a fair record at the track including 2 placed efforts over CD and cannot be ruled out back in the hands of Sam Twistin Davies who has ridden him to victory 5 times in 15 rides.

Fennaan 1pt win only 10/1 (405Catt) Iwac

Has been off the track for 10 months but returns here with his yard in form so hopefully they will have this one ready first time up. A 3 times winner over this trip so interesting to see him dropped back down having run over further for the past 2 years. Mark has fallen significantly since then and he goes here some 11lb below his highest winning mark. Dropping in class here too today for this return and makes a very interesting contender.

My Lady Claire 0.5pt EW 22/1 4 places SkyBet Outsider

Been a bit below par since winning back to back 1 mile contests last Aug/Sept. She is back down to just 1lb above the latest of those wins and is worth a try stepped up in trip here in what look to be ideal conditions. Unexposed at this trip and both breeding and previous wins would suggest that she will get home ok. Holds decent EW chances with 4 places available and in a contest where a few look vulnerable on their current marks.

Neetside 1pt win only 8/1 (305Utt) Nap

Made a decent start for this new yard winning a mares handicap on just her second start since joining. Shaped well next time up too at Southwell when dropped in trip and running into one who has won twice again since. Tom Midgley is able to get his full claim here again today of 7lb which effectively put her just 1lb above the winning mark from the mares race 2 runs back. Well worth another try back up in trip considering how her last couple of runs have worked out.

Oakenshield 1pt win only 10/1 (735Yarm) Nb

Needs to bounce back from a poor run last time out but had earlier shown signs of his old ability albeit only in a sellers race. Placed off 7lb higher back in April and is now sitting on a very attractive mark on best form. May need a little more give in the ground but we take a chance with Hollie Doyle back in the saddle having been eased markedly in the weights in recent months.

Air Of York 0.5pt EW 20/1 (335Bath)

Landed this race last year from a 4lb higher mark but comes here off the back of a couple of lesser performances. That said this one often puts his best foot forward here and holds excellent EW claims from this current mark despite the yard being a little out of sorts.

Mabo 1pt win only 11/2 (405Bath)

One from the tracker who was very unfortunate to be forced very wide around the tight bends of Wolverhampton last time out. Finished off that race strongly despite the wide trip and having been checked in his run a couple of times too. Today’s extra furlong should play in favour and Grace Harris has this one turned out quickly here. Has been eased in the weights 5lb today which is huge given that eye catching finish last time out.

Confils 1pt win only 13/2 (635Brig)

Shaped as if something was amiss last time out and has been given a couple of months to put whatever that was right. Comes here with the yard bang in form (5/9 in the last 14 days for a 56% strike) and back in the hands of Pat Cosgrave who had taken this mare a close second on her previous run. The yards record here in the last 12 months read 3 wins and 2 placed from 7 for a 42% strike and an overall record of around 17% strike with an LSP of +74.

Pretty Stranger 1pt win only 10/1 (745South)

Disappointing last time out but had previously put in a much improved effort upped in trip on similar better ground at Ffos Las. Back up in trip here and in the hands of a very talented 10lb claimer which makes this Evan Williams trained mare a very dangerous proposition. Comes here with the yard amongst the winners an looks to be well overpriced forgiven that last run.

Indianapolis 1pt win only 11/1 (225Asc) Iwac

Yard have got this one going back in the right direction and despite having a bit to prove here today there is plenty to like. Put in a better effort last time out, much better than how the bare result reads and comes here dropping in grade and falling down the weights. Richard Kingscote takes over in the saddle which is a big plus here today too.

Firewater 1pt win only 8/1 (435Ches) Nb

Would possibly appreciate a little more give in the ground but hopefully with the small amount forecast there will be just enough juice in the ground to see the selection at his best. Comes here on a mark that looks about bang on judged on last years form so there’s not a lot of wiggle room for errors. Made a very pleasing return to action in May and can be forgiven his latest disappointment on the AW as he makes a speedy return to turf.

Zealous 0.5pt EW 33/1 (750Ham) Outsider

Not been seen in the winners enclosure since 2019 but amongst some pretty poor performances have been some snippets of hope from much higher marks than the one he runs from today. Steps back up in trip today which should suit and will have appreciated his couple of runs since returning to action. Bit of a wildcard but just enough to peak my interest at these prices. Yards record here is not a very strong one but on a going day this one has enough to make a mockery of this mark on any surface.

The Kodi Kid 1pt win only 6/1 (540Ches) Nap

A very promising 2 year old who has failed to fire in 2 starts this term. This however looks to be a handpicked race following a not too dissatisfying run in much better company. Eased in grade here and eased in the weights slightly too for a yard that has a great record at the track. Has a little bit to prove today but yard are just starting to get a second wind and this unexposed 3 year old looks to have all in favour today.

Major Jumbo 1pt win only 12/1 (400Asc) Iwac

A very competitive handicap in which a case can be made for over half of the field. The selection comes here however sitting on a very attractive mark and dropping into class 3 handicap company for the first time since April 2018, so it would be fair to say that the sights have been lowered somewhat. Still has a bit to prove having been very lightly raced in the past 12 months and not running quite up to the level that he was 12 months ago but his latest run was a step back in the right direction and could have put him just right for a big run today. Has a very talented 7lb claimer onboard today and should put in a big run for a yard who are starting to find a few winners.

Wild Flower 1pt win only 11/2 (615Chep) Nap

Turned out very quickly here following a lesser run last time out. Had earlier put in a big run over CD on his yard debut off the back of a 245 day break so we are willing to draw a line through that run 2 days ago. Has also won over CD with previous yard which gives us more confidence returning here. Tyler Heard takes over in the saddle taking off a very valuable 5lb in what looks a competitive race and his record for the yard is a very good one and reads, 5 wins and 3 placed from 14 runners for a 35% win strike and a LSP of +26.

Winklevi 1pt win only 13/2 (815Chep) Nnb

The favourite here looks to have been found a race by Richard Hannon but it will be the first time that he takes on his elders and there are a couple in here from very shrewd yards that will be making sure he doesn’t get it all his own way. Well there aren’t many shrewder that David Evans and we plum for his runner who is dropping in class coming here and back down in trip on much more suitable ground. Earlier he had put in a big run at Sandown when 3rd in a race which has worked out pretty well since and that run was only his second since joining the yard and having not been seen for over 1000 days. Better can be expected today, how much better however is yet to be seen.

Rattling Rosie 0.5pt EW 28/1 4 places SkyBet (800Ches) Outsider

Unexposed 3 year old dropping back in trip to a more suitable one today. Raced keenly last time out and was unable to see out the race that was over a much further trip so can be forgiven that run. Earlier had put in an encouraging run at Wolverhampton, a yard that the trainer likes to send his youngsters to and could well show huge improvement today from a stall that holds a big advantage. Cheekpieces on for the first time and well worth a punt with 4 places available.

Existent 1pt win only 11/2 (410Newm) Nb

A comfortable winner at Newmarket back in October in a race that has turned out a good few winners since. Not just winners either but some decent looking sorts. That win came on heavy ground but this Kingman colt is looking very versatile and should cope with this quicker ground today. Still fairly lightly raced and made a pleasing reappearance following an 8 month absence last time out. Should kick on from that as he looked in need of the run and could well have improved over that break too.

ITV7 Races From #Newmarket #Carlisle #Doncaster

13:50 Newmarket 08 Jul 2021

Bahrain Trophy Stakes

YIBIR 9/4 gets the nod in this small but talented field. Has been running in and amongst possibly the most talented 3yo middle distance runners that there is. Has acquitted himself well in that company and may not have even put his best foot forward yet. Will appreciate this quicker ground here and looked to have needed a couple of his runs this term and today’s step up in trip should be one that is not only needed but could even bring out the best in him.

14:05 Carlisle 08 Jul 2021

OEE ‘Making The Best Better’ EBF Fillies’ Handicap

LADY CELIA 7/1 Richard Fahey’s 4 year old filly has been very consistent and run close in a couple of decent looking races this term. Her mark looks to be bang there despite going up 2lb but she has been given the time to come on again and could well out run it here today. Connor Murtagh negates the rise with his 3lb claim and todays trip looks ideal in these conditions.

14:25 Newmarket 08 Jul 2021

Tattersalls July Stakes

Jadhlaan 16/1 EW 4 Places Betfair Has improved with each start and looks to have matured between races. Was very green in his run at Haydock but put that run to bed when winning next time out. Has a close run on debut with Project Dante who possibly has the pick of the form on offer here but the selection is bred to appreciate this step up in trip today and could surprise at a big price here.

14:40 Carlisle 08 Jul 2021

Bee Unique ‘Embrace Differences’ Handicap

Spartakos 12/1 Turned out quickly following an improved performance last time out at Ayr. Not beaten far that day despite missing the start and would no doubt have got a little closer if not giving himself that mountain to climb. Gets the benefit of the 5lb claim again today and yard are just starting to get going.

14:50 Doncaster 08 Jul 2021 

Follow At The Races On Twitter Novice Stakes

His Pride 11/1 Richard Fahey won this race in 2019 and we back him to do it again here with one that fits a similar profile. Just the one run as a 2yo and comes here off the back of an 8 month break. Sure to have improved over that time considering the hands he’s in and could well do better here receiving weight from the market principals.

15:00 Newmarket 08 Jul 2021

Each Way Extra At bet365 Handicap

Abduction 12/1 Finished last term with a very comfortable win at Wolverhamton and made a very pleasing return to action having been gelded over the winter. Will be entitled to have come on for that run and the form of the race looks pretty solid too.

Royal Scimitar 35/1 EW 6 Places PP Worth an EW nibble with 6 places on offer with his yard just starting to find some form. Not really pushed on from his 2 year old form but has found himself easing in the weights as a result.

15:35 Newmarket 08 Jul 2021

Princess Of Wales’s Tattersalls Stakes

AL AASY 8/15 Hard to look past this short priced favourite following his run in the Coronation Cup. Has won here before when taking the Bahrain Trophy at last years July meeting. Highest Ground rates best of the rest.

Thanks for reading and Good Luck !!!

Venusta 0.5pt EW 28/1 4 places Skybet (100Carl) Outsider

Has improved with each of his 3 runs since joining this new yard and more notably last time out when stepped up in trip too. Will need to improve again on that run against a couple of up and comers here but wouldn’t need to do much more to grab one of the 4 places that have been offered by Skybet. Looks a solid EW player.

Cool Dandy 1pt win only 10/1 (130Carl) Nap

CD winner back in May and effectively went off from this same mark having run from out of the handicap that day. Followed that up with a good 3rd in behind Fircombe Hall before putting in a couple of lesser runs at Ayr. A quick turn out is encouraging returning to this track and she is much better off at the weights here with the earlier mentioned rival so a chance is taken at a price that looks pretty generous.

Lenny’s Spirit 1pt win only 7/1 (500Carl) Nb

Steadily progressing and finding his stride this term and will appreciate this slightly more giving ground over todays trip. Yard have been patient with him and he looks due a big run from this easing mark. Yard do well with their runners here with a 23% win strike and Mark Crehan has a decent affiliation with them too with 5 wins and 6 places from just 29 rides.

Follow Your Heart 1pt win only 9/1 (140Donc) Iwac

Well held when last seen at Pontefract but had previously won a decent looking novice event at Wolverhampton on his return. The second that day is now rated 90 giving some hope that this opening mark of 72 is a pretty fair one. Of course we are having to forgive that latest run and pray a little of faith that he will get this heavy ground following that defeat but there’s enough in the breeding to suggest he will and this extended 5F looks more suitable and he may even want a little further in time. Chancy but worth a punt at these odds.

Sisu 1pt win only 11/2 (600Epsom) Nnb

Typical one from the Sir Mark Prescott yard, stepping up in trip, headgear applied and his only runner on the card here. Yard bang in form and this one will appreciate this test of stamina today. Yards record at the track is also noteworthy 4 from 8 in the last 5 years for a 50% strike and this will be their first runner here for over 12 months.
