2:30 Beverley - Only Spoofing 7/4 to Win

Beverley Racecourse
BEVERLEY 2.00 Div 1
A poor class 6 race then add on the four 3-year olds who could be open to improvement sure muddy the waters, its a race where I wont be having a bet especially when the top rated, Twentysvnthlancers 12/1 is about as reliable of the weather.
BEVERLEY 2.30 Div 2
This 2nd division is lot better than the previous one but still three 3-year olds that could improve, but when the top weight is my top rated it means it must have a decent chance of winning, ONLY SPOOFING 7/4 usually likes to track the leaders and is fairly well drawn in stall 3 to get a good early position from the off and they stay on the stronger at the finish but my stakes wont be at full tilt with some potentially hidden dangers lurking in the race and I'm not over the moon at such a short price.

Only Spoofing 7/4 1st
NOTTINGHAM 2.50
A step up in to class 5 but not much better, the top weight has only had 3 runs before and may be well handicapped here and it comes from a top class stable and looks likely to be a fairly hot favourite but I will go with an each way prospect, 8/1 on the tissue prices, hoping that PRETTY BUBBLES 12/1 can stay on strongly at the finish but once again smaller stakes will be deployed in an each way bet.

Pretty Bubbles 20/1 5th
RIPON 8.10
On paper a nice looking class 3 race but I've only got Captain Colby marked down as a front running sort but this ones best time i well down on some of the others but an easy lead could see it improve but enough? I'm not sure, Zylan is top rated but most of its times have come from lower class races, Dougan is 2nd best but the trainer is 0-13 at this course, 3rd best is Pipers Note who likes to track the leaders, i think its a race best left alone.
