A very nice looking class three race for a Sunday afternoon if the rain hasn't spoiled everything of the thirteen entries there are three that can lead and set the pace, Right Touch who isn't in my top seven, Whozthecat who is my third top rated and Searchlight who is my second top rated so it ought to be a fast run race and could set the race up for a fast or strong finishing type, Sunraider is my third top rated and can be either held up or track the leaders but my top spot goes to the top weight DEAUVILLE PRINCE 8/1 who recorded its best time this year at Chester, a track that stops horses from ever really getting into top gear as they are virtually on a bend for the whole race, this course is the slowest track in the country on my times calculations, so I'm hoping the selection who does just as well over a seventh furlong should be finishing strongly at the finish and if the early pace is fast they could be coming to the end of their tether as the selection starts to make its move and the stable are employing a seven pound claiming apprentice to help their cause.
5:40 Pontefract - Fifteen runners in a class five race where form in quite inconsistent and ive only got four horses that have recorded a time to register on my figures and there ares five possible front runners in the field but four of them, Ben Hall, Loumarin, Milady Eileen and George Bailey are not in my top four, fourth top is the top weight Salvatore Fury who is either held up or tracks the leader, Horsforth my third top rated looks likely to be the one that does best of the front runners, second spot goes to Oldjoesaid who should like this course but I'm not quite sure if it is capable of repeating its best time but a place looks the best it can achieve if it does equal its best time, top of my figures is Boxing Shadow but is now a non runner, so I'm going with backing both OLDJOESAID 12/1 and HORSFORTH 14/1 hopefully to make a profit from at least one of them.
Deauville Prince 8/1 Unp
Old Joe Said 12/1 5th
Horsforth 14/1 6th
