The first division of a poor class six race and with eleven runners and two known possible leaders but neither Bapak Bangsawan or Perfect Peak have recorded any even decent times although the latter being a three year old could still have some improvement to come and needs it to win this but if it gets an easy lead it could improve but I've got a feeling it wont happen here, the top rated and therefore selection is YPRES 8/1 who has done two times plenty good enough to win in this class and it ran a decent race twelve days ago on its seasonal reappearance when fourth at Newcastle and if fit enough its got a good few spots in hand of the others plus there's nothing from the trainers statistics side of things to put me off.
3:00 Beverley - Down to ten runners in this division with Poolstock that might lead if nothing else wanted to and Rambo Will who does like to lead could be the prominent early horses but neither are in my top two, I've got Gulland Rock in second position from a time at Salisbury and it usually likes to track the leaders but top spot goes to DIAMONDSINTHESKY 25/1 who did a good time at Leicester and this one can track the leaders or be held up but I'm really put off by the fact that the jockey Renato Souza has had thirty six rides for this stable without a winner but the question is this, would a jockey take ride after ride for a stable when he knows its not going to win, thirty six is too high for it to be a coincidence that he hasn't had a winner but I'm hoping the price is big enough to make it a worth the gamble.
5:20 Brighton - Only six runners but still a tricky little race, Peter Island could be a bit of a hidden danger as it could try to lead even though its not produced any good times but i'll stick with the proven, Whitecrest who I tipped up when it won last time out comes out second top here behind PUCON 13/2 who is the second horse in the race that has been known to lead and if it gets to the front here could be hard to pass and if it gets an uncontested lead I can see it pinching it from the front without too much trouble but with the unknowns in the race stakes have to be get on the low side.
7:50 Hamilton - Rather surprising for the class of the race its a poor affair with only three runners being on my radar with figures that feature on my graphs, the most likely leader is the top weight Munfallet who is also my second top rated so it doesn't look like many should get involved in the finish but the top rating goes to MANATEE BAY 4/1 who can be held up or track the leaders so im hoping it gets a decent early position and keeps on strongly or it gets a clear run when its trying to finish if held up.
8:50 Hamilton - A poor class six race with nine runners and no known front runner so it could be a strange race especially as I've only got BUSY BIMBO 12/1 with a rating on my graphs but looking at its other form I wouldn't guarantee it will reproduce it here but there's nothing else with a figure but also there's a hidden danger in Kano's Ghirl so stakes have to be kept low.
