The Desert Hawk race was very interesting. King CAnute was 33/1 in the betting forecast  and 5/2 Joint favourite and came 2nd ,and if using the live market, this would have quite obviously been the place only bet with such a huge price differential
I am the Best 6th 6/4
Poyle Dee Dee 4th 6/4
Miss Rochester 6th 4/6
Censored won
The Witch Doctor 5th
Think Lucky 4th 6/4
Any Reason 3rd 5/1
The reasons for the poor displays was clearly the soft ground yesterday -heavy at Stratford and soft at SAlisbury

Soft at Catterick so I wouldn’t be playing with any price gappers there

BETTING FORECAST: 7/4 King Olav, 3/1 Amhooj, 6/1 Aboriginie,  Vallani, 8/1 Winter Miss, 10/1 E Major, 25/1 Resentful Angel,  Thoas, 33/1 Hammer, 66/1 Eseej

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: KING OLAV shaped well at Sandown on his debut and though that form could have worked out better, he looked a likely improver and can get off the mark.

Another maiden and another 1 time out favourite 1.23 place  2.92 win

BETTING FORECAST: 8/11 Came Back, 11/2 Bazguy, 9/1 Blue Zenith, 10/1 Blackmalkin, 12/1 Bertie Swift, 14/1 Our Blessing,  Thomas Malory, 25/1 Daddy Cool, 66/1 Prix Masque

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: CAME BACK is hard to get away from on these terms back in this type of company after the way he has progressed in AW handicaps on a variety of tracks

An obvious price gapper 1.13 place 1.77 win

BETTING FORECAST: 9/4 Greystoke Prince, 9/2 Minus Fifteen, 11/2 King´s Wonder, 6/1 La Chicaluna, 7/1 Sir Billy Nick, 10/1 Smokey Rye, 12/1 Dancer´s Legacy, 16/1 Last Of The Line, 25/1 Emperors Jade

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: This looks like it could be run at a strong gallop and it may not be so hard to make ground from off the pace as it often is here. GREYSTOKE PRINCE (nap) nearly pulled those tactics off last time in a race few got into, and with the set-up here looking better, he gets the nod. King’s Wonder should find this much easier than some of his tasks of late

1.51 place, 2.8 win

BETTING FORECAST: 10/11 Shyrl, 3/1 Excellerator, 7/1 Lucky Leigh, 16/1 Aspen Darlin,  Kerrys Requiem,  Riotista, 25/1 Madame Trop Vite,  Night Seed, 40/1 Cat Patrol

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: With the ground unlikely to be a worry, this looks a good opening for SHYRL. One of three with Group race entries (which include the Nunthorpe), she has strong form claims on her Queen Mary second and should confirm her superiority over Lucky Leigh. Excellerator is feared most

Again soft ground means better ground selections will take priority  1.12 place and 1.73 win

200 NOTT
BETTING FORECAST: 4/5 Satwa Laird, 13/2 Lookafternumberone, 8/1 Black Attack, 12/1 Katie Higgins,  Roar Of Applause, 14/1 Scottish Affair,  Sensacion Sensual,  Svindal, 20/1 Coniston Wood, 50/1 Feeling Stylish

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: This looks like a good opportunity for SATWA LAIRD, who shaped with promise on his debut and is clearly well regarded. Katie Higgins might be the best alternative

1.12 place and 1.65 win

Good to soft ground

BETTING FORECAST: 10/11 Pivka, 3/1 Mohathab, 15/2 Summer´s Lease, 10/1 Gaelic Dancer, 12/1 Yetholm, 14/1 Pragmatism, 33/1 La Rochette, 50/1 Curly Brown

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: PIVKA showed bags of promise on her debut and is taken to improve past Mohathab. Newcomer Summer’s Lease, who comes from a good family, is one to keep an eye on.

Pivka place 1.5 place and 2.6 win

Came back and Satwa laird for me today.
