Not a great class five race with thirteen runners but only Prince Regal known to lead before but its times have been slow and its quite a bit below my top three, third top is Tarooq who likes to track the pace setters, second top is Glastonberry who is a hold up type but JOE PACKET 12/1 hits the peak of the top position, its trainer hasn't done very well at this course before which tempers my confidence and also the level of any stakes but the apprentice, Ned Curtis takes off five pounds and has a good record for the stable so I'm hoping for a big run and it usually likes to track the leaders so hopefully it can get a good early position and then finish the stronger and at the price I have to suggest doing it as an each way bet.
Joe Packet - No bet - Soft ground
2:30 Wolverhampton - First division of a six furlong race and a poor race even for the class ive only got three horses that have recorded a time at this course since they altered the surface so confidence cant be high and stakes will be low, Kuanyao could lead if nothing else wanted to but I think there's two more natural front runners, Big City Boy who isnt in my top three but my third top rated Cottrell is the other possible front runner and could be hard to catch if it gets an easy lead, second spot goes to Douneedahand who can be held up or track the leaders but top spot goes to the Ron Harris trained DIAMOND VINE 8/1 who usually likes to be close up early on and then stay on strongly at the finish and if it drifts by two points or more in price I would again suggest an each way bet.

3:00 Wolverhampton - Quite a poor class six race with eleven runners and only five have recorded times at this relatively new surface, so all stakes are automatically low, theres only one known front runner in the field and Indian Affair is also my second top rated so many of these might not be able to get involved but the top rated is the top weight DREAM ALLY 5/1 who normally likes to track the leaders and will hopefully get a good early position and then stay on the strongest at the finish.
8:10 Ripon - What looks like a good class three race over six furlongs with Polski Max, who could lead on sufferance, then the more natural front runners in See The Sun my eight top rated, Cosmic Chatter fourth top and Native Falls my second top rated so it could be a fast run race, Chilworth icon is usually tracking the leaders and its my third op rated but my top spot goes to MISSISSIPPI 8/1 who can be held up or track the leaders and the trainers statistics don't have any negatives so im expecting it to run a big race and as long as there's twelve runners so the place pays a quarter the odds I t may best be given a an each way bet.
Mississippi - No bet - Soft ground
9:20 Chelmsford - Eight runners in a class three race and quite competitive near the top ratings plus one other horse Give us A Belle that could be a hidden danger if it gets an easy lead but I doubt it will happen in this race, Desert Strike could lead but doubt it will with two more natural runners in the race, my third top rated is Stunned who usually tracks the leaders, second top is Arctic Lynx who can be held up or track the leaders but the top rated is the top weighted FOXY FOREVER 11/4 who is also the other front runner and if it does get to the front will be very hard to catch, the trainer does well at this course and the jockey has a good win ratio as well which points to a big run and hopefully an all the way win as long as it can get across from its stall seven draw without any problems.
