1150am Sthl BETTING FORECAST: 13/8 Maid Of Ailsa, 5/2 North South Divide, 3/1 Spic ´n Span, 10/1 Walragnek, 12/1 Bilboa, 20/1 Kilvickeon, 33/1 The Cube, 50/1 Comic Tales, Mickys Mate, Silk Gallery, 100/1 Stoneacre Baby, 150/1 The Brat,
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: North South Divide ran MAID OF AILSA out of third place at Lingfield last month but the latter just seemed to tire in the closing stages and there’s a good chance she’ll be better for that run after a layoff. Spic ‘N Span is preferred of the others.
Walragnek is a non runner making life easier for the price gappers (3) at the head of the market 2.42 / 1.24
1240 HEREFORD BETTING FORECAST: 5/2 Folie A Deux, 6/1 Justabout, 7/1 Compton Star, 8/1 Georgia Steel, 10/1 Charming Oscar, Gotontheluckyone, 14/1 Bob´s Temptation, Pret A Thou, Strategic Plan, 16/1 Covey, 20/1 Five A Side, Poliglotti, Stealing Moments, 25/1 Jimmy Bedney, 33/1 Take It There, 66/1 Marado.
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Hopefully it was just a lack of stamina that led to FOLIE A DEUX’s late capitulation at Exeter and he’s the most interesting contender in a very ordinary handicap.
Novices HAndicap Chase and 7/4 in places but this is a 15 runner event 2.98 / 1.55
1250 SOUTHWELL BETTING FORECAST: 13/8 Came Back, 3/1 Godfrey Street, 7/2 Efistorm, 9/1 Calmdownmate, 14/1 Tanley, 20/1 Ben, Obe One, Overstayed, 33/1 Dubai To Barnsley, Ducal Regancy Red, 50/1 River Gleam, She´s Our Beauty, 66/1 Rightcar Hull, 100/1 Simplified.
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: CAME BACK is well worth another chance back on this track, where he’s gone so well in the past. Godfrey Street is preferred of the others, along with Efistorm
Obe One a potential mover here . All others have remained as per the betting forecast – BUT notice this is a class 6 5 furlong claiming stakes race – poor quality 2.64 / 1.33
110 HEREFORD BETTING FORECAST: 11/10 Spare Cash, 9/4 Lyes Green, 4/1 Sir Peter, 14/1 Stop The Show, 16/1 Will The Till.
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: LYES GREEN wasn’t blemish-free when failing to justify favouritism on his chasing debut but this looks a better opening under more suitable conditions and he warrants another chance. Spare Cash is the danger, though Sir Peter could also have a say
Odds on Thornton/King horse -Stop the Show and Will the Till have shortened. 3 mile beginners chase over good to soft – always need to make sure ground is as stated because on occasion the ground has been markedly different 1.9 / 1.31
120 SOUTHWELL BETTING FORECAST: Evs Bold Account, 5/1 Courageous Nature, 8/1 Glan Lady, 10/1 Dontforgeturshovel, 12/1 Dawn Wee, 16/1 French Forest, Inn Swinger, 20/1 No Quarter Given, That Boy Ronaldo, 33/1 Jerry´s Agent, Wee Bizzom, 50/1 Cwmni.
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: BOLD ACCOUNT has been found a decent opportunity and makes plenty of appeal against some exposed rivals.
Big price gap here but a poor selller – can we rely on the market leader? 1.98 / 1.23
210 HEREFORD BETTING FORECAST: 15/8 Ammunition, 5/2 Mistanoora, 7/2 Young Lorcan, 6/1 Methodical, 10/1 Ya I Know, 14/1 Alcatras, 66/1 Snitton Salvo.
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Mistanoora and Methodical leap out at the weights but both look seriously out of touch at present and a better bet is AMMUNITION, who hit the jackpot first time back last season.
3 horse race vying for 2 places? Methodical’s price has doubled and only 2 places available – odds are nearly 2 for the place on the front 3 – shows this is a tight affair
300 LINGFIELD BETTING FORECAST: 13/8 Titan Triumph, 9/2 Premier Danseur, 6/1 Imprimis Tagula, 7/1 Hallingdal, Twilight Star, 8/1 Hucking Hero, 14/1 Wavertree Warrior, 20/1 Indian Diva.
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Everything points towards TITAN TRIUMPH (nap) completing a hat-trick. He’s managed to overcome a false pace for both his recent wins, so tactically he looks solid as a truer gallop would only be a bonus and, with George Baker up for the first time, he has the ideal jockey for the way he’s ridden. Premier Danseur is feared most
8 runners – 3 places and a price gapper – a good look for place backers 2.68 / 1.34
310 HEREFORD BETTING FORECAST: 13/8 Finney, 9/4 Blistering, 8/1 King Ar Aghaidh, 10/1 Chevy To The Levy, 12/1 Penharold, 16/1 Tender Falcon, 20/1 Ere Alfie, Johns Square, Petit Fleur, 25/1 Exclusionist, Picture In The Sky, 33/1 Blazing Tommy, 50/1 Eyesrdancing, 100/1 Enjoy The Mood, Fredrico, Plain Champagne.
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Blistering is a respected rival but FINNEY (nap) has the hurdling experience and it was a decent race at Plumpton in which he finished a clear second. King Ar Aghaidh is another to keep an eye on
Finney is odds on and Blistering is Thornton/King – again need to keep an eye on ground with these novices – 1.82 / 1.18 and 3.9 / 1.4 Tricky day today given the ground may be softewr than stated.
300 LING is the ideal race – 8 runners and 3 places – fav is on a hattrick in a handicap but there is nothing in the early prices to suggest he will underperform today – has 5 to beat to place and at 1.34 is quite a decent price 1150 SOUTHWELL – Maid of Ailsa could be interesting as a probability bet to place and I will go for this one first 1.24 place.
