Only 7 runners and 2 that could set the pace. Burnt Sugar is 3rd best and will be staying on as it looks as though further would suit it better, 2nd spot is Line Of Reason who can either track the leaders or be held up but my top rated is JUDICIAL 6/1 who I one of the possible front runners and if getting to the front could prove hard to catch and hopefully lead all the way.
Judicial 6/1 1st

With 12 runners and 5 that have led before it could be a fast run race, See Vermont my 3rd top rated needs good to firm going to show its best and could make the frame if doing its best, in 2nd spot is ORIENTAL RELATION 7/1 the topweights trainer has a 25% win rate here which is quite good and its one of the front runners and if getting to the front it could prove hard to beat but I have got GROUNDWORKER 9/2 as my top rated and can be held up or track the pace setters and if they go off too fast up front it could capitalise but like all hold up types may need some luck when trying to stay on at the finish but I will go with backing them both to show a profit whichever one does the business.
Oriental Relation 15/2 1st
Ground Worker 6/1 7th
A nice class 4 race with 9 runners and 5 of the field can lead so it could be fast and furious, I don't think the draw is much of a problem here, I've got Stormflower and my joint 2nd top rated, it's a possible pace setter but it might find this rise in class a bit too much for it and also may need the run for fitness, my top rated is Secret Fact and this is another that may be outclassed and need this run so I'm going with STEPPER POINT 4/1 as the selection, it is the other 2nd top rated and a possible pacesetter and looks the safest option in the race with a few making their seasonal debuts.
Stepper Point 9/2 1st

Just 6 runners and it's quite hard sorting out figures from this year and last, only 2016 times I've got Mossgo as my 3rd top rated, Temple Road in 2nd spot and Pharoh Jake as top rated but not sure if it's really competitive enough at this level, using just this years times, Temple Road and Hot Stuff are my 2nd joint top rated and I've got MOSSGO 5/2 as my top rated and this is the only known front-runner in the race and it's being ridden by a 7lb claiming apprentice who is having their 1st ride for the stable and only their 4th ever ride so I'm hoping their instructions are to go off from the front and attempt to make all.
Mossgo 4/1 4th

A field of 12 and 3 known pacemakers, Pretty Bubbles is joint 3rd top along with Satchville Flyer who could be a possible front runner but this class looks too much for it so maybe not able to lead, Little Palaver the topweight could set the pace but isn't well in on its times LIGHTNING CHARLIE 9/2 could lead and if doing so could prove troublesome as it's my 2nd top rated and the jockey booking looks a positive move as it does with my top rated RIO RONALDO 11/2 who is usually a hold up type so should be staying on at the finish and another with a good jockey booking who has won once from only 3 rides for the stable and I will go with backing them both to cover both angles of a front runner and a finisher.
Lightning Charlie 5/1 2nd
