A race of only nine runners but there's a big unknown possible danger in the race in the form of Ki Ki who has won its one and only race but that was on soft going when leading all the way so I've no idea how it will perform on good to firm ground or if it will try to lead again but I couldn't back it but also cant dismiss it lightly and the other three old is also known to have led before, so already any stakes are on the low side of things, Jinky is my third top rated and Salvatore Fury is second top who recorded its best time last time it ran when second at Carlisle, top spot goes to BOP IT 9/1 who won two runs ago at Haydock and its best time was from Newcastle, so it should handle this course and it can lead or track the leaders, so if the ground is good to firm as stated then it ought to be a fast run affair and the selection to out battle the youngsters.
2:50 Hamilton - A class three affair with just seven runners and two known leaders in Lady Gemini my fifth top rated but still only a three year old so could improve and Pull The Plug my third top rated, second top is ALEXANDRAKOLLONTAI 12/1 and I think this one can repeat its best but it is rated two pounds below ECONOMIC CRISIS 9/1 but this one hasn't hit its form this year, the wet weather hasn't helped a lot of horses this year and this might be one of them but im going to do both of them to show a profit whichever one does the business at the prices its a shame there's not another runner to make it three places for an each way bet, so it will be two small win bets.
4:50 Hamilton - First division of two poor races but this one is slightly the better one, of the ten runners there are two that have been known to lead, Sartori is my fourth top rated and a possible front runner, third top is NOODLES BLUE BOY 10/1 the top weight but take off the seven pounds the apprentice, who has ridden a winner for the stable before, claims it moves to top spot then I've got two joint top rated with Sewn Up who hasn't been in form lately and im leaving out of my idea of the winner, the other top spot was Irish Girls Spirit who keeps running quite well but not getting its head in front, im hoping the apprentice on board the top weight is worth his seven pounds claim and can come home the strongest here.
5:20 Hamilton - Second division and a poor race ten runners and three known pace makers, the only front runner I might consider is the three year old Its Time For Bed but it hasn't done a good time from the front but it could still improve with age, the two top weights are the only two with times good enough to register and when considering BUSY BIMBO 7/1 is ridden by an apprentice there's only one pound between it and MAJESTIC MANANNAN 9/1 but neither have ran as fast this year but the weather hasn't been kind and if the ground stays good to firm one or both of them might spring back to form, im looking to back both but only for small stakes and hopefully make a profit.
