1:40 Southwell - A very tricky looking class three minimum distance sprint and therefore no draw bias here as its on the straight course, ten of the fourteen runners have been known to lead before so I'm expecting a fast early pace, I've got four horses marked down as potential hidden dangers,Mappin Time, Shipyard, Dungannon and Dark Side Dream. but with how I think the race might pan out they would need to show their very best so I'm leaving them alone, Sleepy Blue Ocean is my third top rated and a possible front runner, SCARBOROUGH 10/1 starts off as my original joint third horse but its being ridden by a claiming apprentice which would take it to the top of my figures but may need a bit of luck from stall five with two fast starters either side of it but if it does get to the front could prove hard to catch, Royal Bajan also an early type of horse is my second top rated from stall eleven, whilst top spot goes to EVEN STEVENS 8/1 who is in stall one and tried to lead all the way here two runs ago when finishing second and a repeat of that would take it very close again but I will be backing Scarborough to win the race and either have an equal size bet on Even Stevens or just enough on it to make a small profit just in case my top rated doesn't get a clear run.
6:15 Wolverhampton - A thirteen runner class three race with four of them having been known to lead before, It Must Be Faith is third top rated but drawn wide in stall twelve, second top rated is Elis Eliz who is a three year old and a possible front runner drawn in stall five and top rated is ANONYMOUS JOHN 10/1 another three year old also a possible front runner and drawn in stall six, so I expect these two to dominate along the rails and the selection to prove the stronger close home even if it doesn't lead but if it gets to the front on its own it will be difficult to catch and at the price has to be given as an each way wager'
6:45 Wolverhampton - Division one of a class six sprint with nine runners but only one known front runner and that's Bogsnog who has also been drawn in the best stall on the inside so many of these will most likely not get involved in the race but my top rated is SMART DJ 6/1 who is usually a hold up type and with a clear run could stay on strongly to take this but if it does get in trouble the leader might lead all the way and maybe worth a small saving bet on it.
7:15 Wolverhampton - Division two hasn't got any known front runners so I've no idea where the early pace will come from so does make it that bit harder to solve, the old timer China Excels is third top rated and Spoken Words is my second top rated but this one has been woefully out of form recently and would need to return with a vengeance to get involved here but can never say never when it has done it before, I've got ZEB'S LAD 3/1 quite a few spots in hand of the others and is a hold-up type so will be staying on strongly at the finish and if the early pace isn't too slow it must have a decent chance of taking the prize money here.
