Joint fourth top rated are Love Island and Ambitious Icarus, third top rated is Rex Imperator, second top is MY NAME IS RIO 14/1 who is only one pound lower than my top rated HARWOOD'S VOLANTE 14/1 who has got a seven pound claiming apprentice on board, David O'Meara has got three runners in the race my third and top rated but also Eccleston who by jockey bookings would look to be the stables first choice but I think the horse is better over five furlongs, is this being done to throw the punters off the winner? The only problem for me is where the early pace will come apart from See The Sun to get a good idea of how it will pan out but will back both of my top two ratings to a small each way bet. [No bet - Soft Ground]
3:50 Ffos Las - Five runners with only SIR BILLY WRIGHT that has been known to lead before and its my top rated but if the going is good or firmer im not convinced it can repeat its best time although it has been in good form winning its last two races with cut in the ground so im going to back my top two rated and also do MIDNIGHT RIDER to show a profit whichever one wins. [No bet -Soft Ground]
4:25 Ffos Las - Another five runner race from this course with two known front runners and one of them is the only horse that's registered a time and its the top weight PULL THE PIN 15/8 who could lead and if it does get to the front it could be hard to peg back. [No bet - Soft ground]
4:40 Newcastle - Not a race to get too financially involved in but I think Heroique (trained by Tim Easterby) could be the most likely leader but I've only got IGGY 8/1 as having recorded a figure and its only in by five spots so not too much to get excited about but im hoping Michael Easterby is using his uncles horse as a target to aim at to win the race. [No bet - Soft ground]
5:55 Hamilton - Poor race with only two horses registering on my figures, Munjally is the only known front runner so could be a danger with an uncontested lead, second top rated is Gold beau and top spot is A LOVABLE ROGUE 5/1 who won last time out where it did its best time at this course on good going so could improve even more so has to be the selection. [No bet - Soft ground]
6:25 Hamilton - There are three possible front runners and the best of them is Pull The Plug my fourth top rated, third top is Alexandrakollontai, second top is Economic Crisis who hasn't reproduced its 2014 form as of yet this year but top spot is GUISHAN 14/1 who has been running fairly consistently and a little better than the bare figures look and the trainer does well with his runners at this course which makes me think they will be expecting a big run from the horse here and hopefully a nice each way bet. [No bet - Soft ground]
7:55 Newcastle - Another race where I've only got one horse that recorded a time good enough to register on my figures, there are a couple of possible leaders and if Magh Meall gets to the front it could be a bit of a hidden danger especially as its a three year old but top rated is ANOTHER ROYAL 5/1 who could track the leaders and stay on the stronger.
8:05 Hamilton - Of the nine runners there are two possible known leaders Electric Qatar and George Bailey but I've only got ROCK CANYON 6/1 as registered on my figures and then exactly on my bottom rating so a poor race and it will be a low staked bet. [no bet - Soft ground]
