2:05 Lingfield – Vanity Vanity 5/1 – 1pt win – This horse is up 2lb for finishing 3rd last time, but she ran in to traffic before flying home late. She would have won that day had she of had a bit more luck. Having gone up 2lb, this jockeys claim removes 7lb effectively leaving this Filly 5lb better off. Highest rated horse and may take some beating.
5:00 Kempton – Reticent Angel 2/1 – 1pt win – up 3lb having won again last time out and is now chasing a hatrick. She looks progressive and that form was boosted further when the 12/1 runner up went on to win last week. Clive Cox is 8 from 33 (24%) with specifically handicappers around this course in 2018. Goes well for a bang inform trainer/jockey combo.
6:45 Newcastle – False ID 7/2 – 1pt win – I had this horse last time and realistically he had given up the race after blowing 4/5 lengths at the start. He ran on well at the end and only lost by 3-4 lengths and had he started on a level break with the pack he’d have been bang there. Thomas Greatrex takes off 5lb, so this Gelding effectively runs with a mark of 47. His last two visits here read 2nd with a mark of 46, and more recently 1st with a mark of 46. He is a C&D winner and his trainer is bang inform.
147/100 double – 12:20 Quri + 1:20 Mr Whipped – 1pt double win
16/5 double – 4:30 Magic Circle + 5:45 Almashriq – 1pt double win
