Sixteen runners in a listed race and quite hard to narrow it down to less than two possible winners, two of the possible front runners might not be fast enough to lead if the going is good or firmer and it could leave *POYLE VINNIE 20/1 to dictate the pace and its my third top rated and could improve a few pounds with an uncontested lead, Tangerine Trees is second top rated from a time it recorded at Musselburgh in 2014 and this old timer may not want it to be too firm nowadays but hasn't really shown much this year and has the same running style as my top rated which is HOLLEY SHIFTWELL 14/1 who ran two very nice races when finishing second both times and its last run can be ignored as it didn't stay the sixth furlong so I will be having two each way bets if the going is good or better.
2:55 Beverley - Division one of this class five race and eleven runners, three of them have led before but only Bronze Beau comes fourth from those three pacesetters, third top is Tweety Pie and its being ridden by a seven pound claiming apprentice it doesn't move any higher, second top is YPRES 6/1 who won last time out over six furlongs at Carlisle which proves its well being and its only one pound behind my top rated NOODLES BLUE BOY 20/1 who can fire into form without warning so it cant be dismissed so could make an each way punt and its so close between them I will doing both of them to show a profit whichever ones does the business.
3:25 Newmarket - What looks like a very nice Listed class race with ten runners and two known possible leaders and one of those is Cape Factor who may prefer a softer surface so may not be fast enough to lead here. Ninjago is my fourth top rated and Dinkum Diamond is my third top rated, PORTAMENTO 5/1 is my second top rated but only one pound behind the top rated and it could get an uncontested lead here and being a three year old it could still improve and has a chance of leading all the way here but my actual top rated is LUCKY KRISTALE 3/1 and I will doing both of them to show a profit whichever one wins.
3:30 Beverley - Division two of the class five sprint, I've got joint third top ratings with Thatcherite and Pearl Noir who is one of four in the race having been known to lead before but usually only when nothing else wants to but that wont be the case here, second top is See Vermont who usually tracks the leaders but needs to have the description firm in the going to show its best, which I doubt it will get but it might be dry out enough to be good going, my top rated is *PERADUA 9/1 who is a possible leader and if it does get to the front it ought to be very hard to catch, its a three year old so could still be able to improve and comes from the powerful Richard Fahey stable. *NR
6:10 Newmarket - Twelve runners with four horses that have been known to lead before, I've got Groundworker 20/1 and Absolute Champion 10/1 down as my joint third top rated, the former is being ridden by a seven pound claiming apprentice which would move it into second spot while the latter is a likely leader, my original second top rated is Judge N Jury 10/1 and despite finishing third twice from three runs this year it hasn't really hit into form, top rated is Red Invader 12/1 but this one won last time out in class six and this may be too much of a step up into class four for it to cope, im looking to see if I can back all four to show a profit whichever one wins but its eight bets if you go each way and one placed wont show a profit while of course any winner will be great.
I think I will be leaving the race alone as it quite a hard race to solve and then there are always the matter of the going for any of my bets and I will admit the rain is getting on my nerves.
Holley Shiftwell 16/1 7th
Ypres 6/1 5th
Noodles Blue Boy 20/1 7th
Portamento 5/1 7th
Lucky Kristale 3/1 3rd
