A very competitive class 3 race with 10 runners and only Syrian Pearl my 4th top rated known as a front-running sort so could be dangerous with an easy time in front, I've got George Bowen and Englishman as my joint 2nd top rated and both can be held up or track the leader but top spot goes to top weighted SEEKING MAGIC 15/2 who ran ok in a fast run race at Goodwood last time out and is dropped in class here so must have a decent chance of getting itself back to winning ways and this trainer and jockey combination points to them expecting a big run in this race and hopefully its true potential of winning this race is hidden enough to get a decent price.

This is a poor class 6 race with 15 runners and very little early pace apart from BOGSNOG 6/1 who is my 2nd top rated and could be a danger if getting an easy lead and the only horse with a faster time is ATHOLLBLAIR BOY 7/1 but this seems dependent on the going at least good to firm, so the going will decide my final decision but if the going is right I will go with backing them both to make a profit whichever one does the business but my stakes will be low as most of these are not very consistent.
Bog Snog 7/1 8th

Another competitive race with 11 runners of which 5 have been known to set the early pace, Union Rose my 4th top rated is a possible pace setter but is in stall 2 which isn't ideal, in 3rd spot is the 3 year old Swizzell and has the best draw in stall 11 for another possible front runner, Adams Ale is my 2nd top rated and usually stays on at this distance as if it needs further so could make the frame with a late run but my top rated is FOXTROT KNIGHT 10/1 and comes from R.Carr's stable which is doing well lately which is always a good sign and this one likes to track the leaders and from stall 8 should be able to cover any moves from either side and stay on the stronger at the finish of the race and get another win under its belt.
Foxtrot Knight 11/1 4th
