Poor day for my selections but let’s see how the price gappers/winning gap(ish) selections performed
Riolina 1st 3/1
Like for like 1st 6/5
Casual Garcia 1st 5/6
Galpin Junoir 1st 8/15
Tilsworth Charlie 5th 5/2
Le Toreador 4th 9/4
On our way 1st 2/1
Certain PRomise 1st 4/6
A nice haul without any analysis 2nd day on the trot. I’ll concetrate on these again today I think.
PRICE GAPPERS /WINNING GAP (again no analysis -just listing them)
BETTING FORECAST: Evs Servoca, 5/1 Justonefortheroad, 6/1 Come And Go, Lyric Art, 12/1 Real Dandy, 14/1 Dark Echoes, 20/1 Gilbertian, 33/1 Dark Desert, Our Angel, Shanavaz
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Lyric Art is an interesting newcomer and if the money comes for her, she has to be on the shortlist. Justonefortheroad went with plenty of dash on his debut and is another to consider but each of SERVOCA’s five runs have seen him return a RPR in excess of anything else achieved in this line-up and this looks his best opportunity to date.
BETTING FORECAST: 6/4 Amber Queen, 7/2 Paint The Town Red, 5/1 Midnight Muse, 8/1 Holden Eagle, Willkandoo, 12/1 Brasingaman Hifive, 16/1 Resounding Glory
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Holden Eagle has caught the eye the last twice and remains capable of better, while Paint The Town Red looked the type to continue to progress when scoring at Great Leighs last time. AMBER QUEEN (nap) is bred to be a bit better than an 80-rated filly though and the style of her York win last month suggested she was one to keep on the right side
BETTING FORECAST: 7/4 Masamah, 3/1 Agente Parmigiano, 4/1 Art Preview, 9/2 Evelyn May, 12/1 Gone Hunting, 14/1 Big Stormy .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Ready AW winners Art Preview and Evelyn May merit serious consideration, but they may lack the quality of MASAMAH, whose ready York success has worked out well.[
Not as big a price gap as the others
BETTING FORECAST: 11/4 Wingwalker, 7/1 Delegator, 8/1 Calligrapher, Mishrif, 10/1 King Of Wands, Midnight Cruiser, Murhee, 12/1 Print, 14/1 Sequillo, 20/1 Aqwaal, Forte Dei Marmi, Highland River, 25/1 Invincible Heart, 33/1 Adios Juan, Strongarm, 40/1 Mezzoforte, 50/1 Gordy Bee, Orsippus, 66/1 Duar Mapel .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Nineteen unraced youngsters and something of a lottery but a handful hold big-race engagements in the coming weeks and the betting should provide further clues. WINGWALKER appears to have plenty going for him and is preferred to Delegator and Murhee
Note Spotlight’s comment
BETTING FORECAST: 5/4 Distiller, 5/1 Caretta Caretta, 13/2 Crashtown Hall, 7/1 Canndar, Runaround Sue, 10/1 What Luck, 20/1 Global Party, 25/1 Laughing Game, 66/1 Theseainttoys, 100/1 Killer Jim, Mr Parson, Posh King .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Several of these are capable of running solid races but they all have something to find with DISTILLER who should be able to give the weight away if staying this longer trip
BETTING FORECAST: 10/11 Cross Compliance, 6/1 Pillbox, 7/1 Megasue, 8/1 Bob Casey, 10/1 Standing Order, 20/1 Beyond Moonbeams, Celtic Robber, Magical Island, 25/1 Miss Maratana, 33/1 April The Last, Little Squirrell, Stormed At Dawn .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: The bumper form on offer is nothing to shout about and the interesting one is undoubtedly CROSS COMPLIANCE, who has been out for a long time but looked a good prospect when winning his point
Well it’s been a superb strike rate last 2 days – pure coincidence? When is a price gap not a price gap? Some could be nearlies like those below
BETTING FORECAST: 2/1 Englishtown, 7/2 St Mellion Freeway, 9/2 Don´t Be Bleu, 5/1 Barneys Mate, 14/1 Picabo Kid, Thunder Rock, 16/1 Jass, 20/1 Marrel, Symbiosis .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Englishtown should come out on top of the quartet which fought it out here last week but is no certainty to do so. St Mellion Freeway is a threat with the initial handicap effort under his belt but, if the ground is good or quicker,BARNEYS MATE might still confirm the placings even if the weights strongly suggest he cannot.
BETTING FORECAST: 7/4 Wildbach, 11/4 Pips Assertive Way, 9/1 Are You There, 10/1 Kingoftheswingers, Mycenean Prince, 12/1 L´Oiseau De Feu, 16/1 Spence Appeal, 20/1 Fair Shake, 25/1 Day´s Over, Fiorsceal, 33/1 Sea Cookie, 66/1 Cool Dante .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Pips Assertive Way is ahead of the handicapper but is worth taking on until she shows she can do it away from her beloved Stratford. The obvious alternative is WILDBACH, who, unlike in his latest start in Germany, will not have to face a test of his swimming prowess.
BETTING FORECAST: 11/4 Sienna Lake, 6/1 Against The Rules, 8/1 All Angel, Barcode, Miss Moloney, 10/1 Bounty Reef, Heaven Knows When, 12/1 Buddy Marvellous, Kapowee, 16/1 Pokfulham, 22/1 Strikemaster, 25/1 Ashwinder, Benetti, 33/1 Ba Globetrotter .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Sellers here are usually a cut above those run elsewhere but that can’t be said about this race and not one of the field makes overwhelming appeal. Sienna Lake sets the standard but is far from unbeatable and a chance is taken on AGAINST THE RULES who has been keeping better company without looking devoid of ability
BETTING FORECAST: 5/2 Tubby Isaacs, 7/2 Romany Nights, 8/1 Al Gillani, Bobby Rose, 10/1 Bollin Franny, 14/1 Blackmalkin, Mambazo, Quality Street, 16/1 Zazous, 20/1 Autograph Hunter, Night Premiere, 25/1 Our Fugitive .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Tubby Isaacs looks capable of better than he showed on his reappearance and he is the one runner in the line-up who could be capable of much better. On the downside, his brother Point Of Dispute had several ideas of his own about the game and he hasn’t looked entirely straightforward in his four runs to date. It may be worth chancing BOBBY ROSE against him. The selection shaped with a bit more promise last time and is now on an attractive mark
BETTING FORECAST: 100/30 Kannon, 6/1 Nikki Bea, 8/1 Alzaroof, Convallaria, Djalalabad, Pragmatist, 10/1 Lady Amberlini, Plumage, 16/1 Grand Symphony, Miracle Baby, 20/1 Mythical Charm, 25/1 Kindallachan, 33/1 Chalentina, Sempre Libera .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: NIKKI BEA (nap) did enough on her reappearance to think she retains her ability and back against her own sex, she can register a fourth success at the course
BETTING FORECAST: 3/1 Glenridding, 6/1 Derricks Dotty, Society Music, 7/1 Joshua´s Gold, 10/1 Gracie´s Gift, Monda, Pitbull, 12/1 Terminate, 14/1 Tanforan, United Nations, 20/1 Centreboard, 25/1 Boppys Pride, Fern House .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: There looks to be plenty of pace on here and that could play into the hands of GRACIE’S GIFT, who has dropped to a very competitive mark and handles conditions. Glenridding could prove best of those who are likely to force the issu
BETTING FORECAST: 10/11 Alonso De Guzman, 5/2 Raffish, 8/1 Santando, 10/1 Depraux, 12/1 Boxhall, 16/1 Zed Candy .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Raffish was going the right way when last seen and if he is tuned up for this reappearance, he has to go well, particularly if the rain continues to fall. ALONSO DE GUZMAN was impressive here last week though and should be able to follow up without a penalty to overcome
BETTING FORECAST: 6/4 Amber Queen, 7/2 Paint The Town Red, 5/1 Midnight Muse, 8/1 Holden Eagle, Willkandoo, 12/1 Brasingaman Hifive, 16/1 Resounding Glory .
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Holden Eagle has caught the eye the last twice and remains capable of better, while Paint The Town Red looked the type to continue to progress when scoring at Great Leighs last time. AMBER QUEEN (nap) is bred to be a bit better than an 80-rated filly though and the style of her York win last month suggested she was one to keep on the right side.
