This is a dire race split into two divisions of nine in each race there's no known front-runners in either race so could make it a hard race to analyse thoroughly, Ershaad is so out of form I will be looking to lay this one along with Guilded Rock and Sun In His Eyes who are also shown very little to make me think they can win even at this low grade, then add Emerald bay who finds the trip too far if they go a genuine gallop so that big negatives against nearly half the runners, Intense Starlet is my third top rated and usually likes to track the leaders, Burauq also likes to be prominent and comes out second best while top spot goes to CUBAN QUEEN 5/1 who can track the pace setters or be held up and looks as though it might be even better over further and will be staying on strongly at the finish as long as they don't go a crawl early and it then becomes a two furlong dash but stakes will be kept low.
Division, two does look a lot better race apart from the lack of known pace, I would be looking to lay Whipphound,Indian Tim and Fiftytintsofsilver for various reasons but once again I would be happier if I knew there would be a fast early pace then My Time and Bilash could be added to the list despite the former coming out third top, Dream Ally usually races prominently and is my second top rated but I've got VIRILE 13/8 as my top rated and it got a good few spots in hand on my times and is being ridden by a seven pound claiming apprentice who has won three races from ten attempts for the stable which hopefully points to them expecting a very big run here.
Is another race without any known front runners and therefore harder than usual to analyse conclusively, if the going is good to firm I would look to lay Under Siege, Evanscent and Capolavoro and also lay Pink Martini and Time Medicean as they are better over a shorter trip, which is half the field discounted even then my third top rated Heartsong may not want the going to be too fast, second top is VINCENTTI 5/1 who usually likes to track the pace setters while NOVERRE TO GO 14/1 is well weighted in this race and comes out top rated from a time over this course and distance but this class four race might be too much for it to cope with so I will back Vincentti win only and Noverre To Go each way to show a profit whichever one does the business.
I've got two known front-runners in this race, Quantum Dot and Our Lord who is my third top rated so hopefully it will be a fairly fast run race, Beau Mistral is capable of making the frame in a slowly run race but in this race I would look to lay it, Ask The Guru is my second top rated and this one might be even better over a longer trip which leaves me with the topweight STORM LIGHTNING 6/1 who is also my top rated and this one will be staying on at the finish and has a few spots in hand so a repeat of its best time recorded at Windsor ought to see it home here and has proven form to say that it doesn't dislike this course.
HAYDOCK 7.55 Ive got negatives against four of the eight runners and just three with recordable times and the problem of no pace setters again, Busy Bimbo is third top and can be held up or track the leaders whilst the three-year-old Shesthedream is my second top rated and this will be its first handicap run so the stable could have concealed just how good this one actually is but it will have to improve a few pounds to overcome RUBY'S DAY 10/1 if this one decides to reproduce its best time recorded last year at Hamilton and may like it here giving weight to slightly inferior animals but I won't be going in too heavily with the stakes as I'm not sure how fast or slowly the race is going to be run in the early stages as long as there remain, eight runners, I will have to go with an each way wager if any non-runners then win only.
Nine runners and two who have been known to lead before, Dragon King my fifth top and Excellent George my fourth top so it at least should be a reasonable gallop, Mehronissa is my third top rated and usually tracks the leaders, GUISHAN 9/1 starts off as second top but with the jockeys allowance it comes out joint top rated and this apprentice has a very good record for the stable winning three times from just eight rides, my original top rated is MERHOOB 7/1 but this one may need further to show its best and is also being ridden by a claiming apprentice who has won once from thirteen rides for the stable so I will have to back both of them to show a profit whichever one does the business.
