Quite a poor race over six furlongs with thirteen runners and three of them, Finflash, Misstemper and Diminutive who is my third top rated, have been known to lead if nothing else does but we have a more natural front runner in Indian Affair who is my fifth top rated, Hamis Al Bin is quite inconsistent but is my second top on its best run over this course and distance but top spot goes to the top weighted DREAM ALLY 10/1 and its first two runs of the season over this course and distance were quite good, I can easily ignore its next run on grass but over five furlongs but didn't run to form last time out back here but its proved its capable of winning this but consistency isn't prominent in this class of race and the price gives us a bit of leeway being an each way price.
6:45 Doncaster - Eleven runners here with two horses, Fortinbrass and Feel The Heat have been known to lead if nothing else wants to lead but it looks like there are two more likely front runner, Disclosure who's final times have been quite slow, the other possible leader is BOGSNOG 9/2 who is my joint second top rated along with TAROOQ 11/2 and both are being ridden by apprentices to help their cause and I cant split them and I also think both of them are capable of producing their best times again but the top rated DARK CASTLE 12/1 hasn't proved it can reproduce its best again but if its done it once its always possible it can do it again. What I' suggesting is to back both of the top two to win the race and having a smaller bet on the actual top rated just in case it springs back to form here.
7:40 Newbury - Class five race with nine declared to run, Head Space is my fourth top rated but ridden by a five pound claiming apprentice which would move it to third top but to show its best I think it needs a flatter course than this one, third top is Bush Warrior from a time recorded at Windsor and can be held up or track the leaders, my original second top rated is PRINCE REGAL 12/1 who has a seven pound claimer on board which moves it to top spot and the trainer does well at this course and at the price has to be done as an each way bet, the jockey does well for this trainer and hes in decent form lately which all points to a big run, the original top spot is Shamahan who did its best time first time out at Windsor in 2014 but has been nowhere near repeating that level of form on the clock.
