A twenty runner 5f sprint handicap that is wide open with 10/1 the field. Six horses have set the pace before. Judge n Jury comes out best being my 4th top rated, 3rd top rated is Racy, who can either be held up or track the leaders, 2nd top rated is Taajub, who usually tracks the pace, my top rated is the top weight STEPS who won last time out in a Listed race, so has every chance here as long as it gets a clear run when making its move.
5:25 EPSOM - A seventeen runner 6f class 2 handicap race. Two known possible pace setters: Bondesire, who is my 6th top rated and in very good form lately but may prefer a bit of cut in the going but does handle firm ground, and Fair Value, who is my joint second top rated so may prove hard to catch. There are three other joint second top rated horses, Chooseday, who will most likely be held up but can track the pace, Joe Packet, who tracks the pace and Regal Parade, who is a hold up type. My top rated is SWISS CROSS 12/1 who looks well weighted here and will hopefully come home strongly.
5:40 MUSSELBURGH - Over 5f and I'm hoping the ground dries out so please check before betting. Four possible leaders: Jofranka, who I doubt will be good enough here, but Lexington Place 4th top, Red Baron 3rd top and Captain Dunne 2nd top, all must have some chance from the front but it could play into the hands of a finisher and as long as the selection THE NIFTY FOX doesn't get outpaced early on it could finish the strongest and at 16/1 could be worth a small each way bet as long as the going isn't soft.
6:25 LINGFIELD - Eleven runners over 5f in a class 5 handicap with two possible pace makers. Pastoral Witness, who I doubt will maintain the pace all the way, and Dawn Catcher, who is my 2nd top rated so will be hard to catch. I'm hoping my top rated WHITECREST can sit handily during the race and prove the stronger near the finish.
6:55 LINGFIELD - Only eight runners here in a class 4 handicap over 6 furlongs with only Daylight known to lead so could be hard to catch if he gets an easy lead. My 2nd top rated is Generalyse who likes to track the leaders while my top rated NAABEGHA 4/1 who is a hold up type and can finish best of them all.
SUMMARY 3:15 Epsom - An each way bet on STEPS 10/1. 5:25 Epsom - SWISS CROSS 12/1 another each way bet. 5:40 Musselburgh - THE NIFTY FOX 16/1 a small each way bet. 6:25 Lingfield - WHITECREST 10/1 another each way bet. 6:55 Lingfield - A win bet here only because the odds are not big enough to do each way on NAABEGHA 4/1.
PS: Don't forget to check the going before you bet.
