RACE 1: Leicester Racecourse
MR CAFFREY scored with a couple in hand at Taunton latest and in a similar event should give another strong account with Cillin Leonard back in the irons. PERFECT MAN has sights lowered now reverting to hurdles and if running to the 134 mark he’ll be hard to beat. That being said his season return at Hexham was poor and he has questions to answer before getting outright approval.
Top Tip – MR CAFFREY (3)
One to consider – PERFECT MAN (2)
RACE 2: Leicester Racecourse
ONE TRUE KING has had to settle for 2nd best the last twice and now reverting to novice ranks it’s hard to see him not grabbing the gold in style. He’s rated 130 and if he runs to that level he’ll give this lot a lesson. MR GREY SKY was denied at odds-on at Ffos Las last month and has every right to seek amends now dropped in trip.
Top Tip – ONE TRUE KING (1)
One to consider – MR GREY SKY (5)
RACE 3: Leicester Racecourse
DE BARLEY BASKET has a hat trick in the crosshair after back to back extended 21f wins including the latest by 12 lengths. The 7lb penalty might not be enough to stop him securing the coveted accolade. He remains 2lb well-in and this could be a stop on the way to bigger and better things. AGENT VALDEZ is trip suited but made a few errors last time that saw him unable to de better than 3rd. He should be able to fill in the runner-up berth with an honest run.
Top Tip – DE BARLEY BASKET (1)
One to consider – AGENT VALDEZ (2)
RACE 4: Leicester Racecourse
GORTROE JOE copped a modest 4lb rise for his pleasing Sandown win last time and if he’s got more of that in the tank then a double looks fairly likely. A DISTANT PLACE is a winner between the flags and has shown plenty of promise in both hurdle runs including runner up by half a length at Hereford. He’s going up in trip on handicap bow and the opening mark of 120 is workable.
Top Tip – GORTROE JOE (3)
One to consider – A DISTANT PLACE (2)
RACE 5: Leicester Racecourse
HUNNY MOON won on bumper debut at Stratford and was not disgraced in 3rd behind a useful rival at Aintree latest. Now going hurdling she’s also up in trip and should give a strong account. FANTASTIC LADY gets a shout on debut for Nicky Henderson as a relation to plenty of useful sorts across the channel.
Top Tip – HUNNY MOON (6)
One to consider – FANTASTIC LADY (4)
RACE 6: Leicester Racecourse
GO AS YOU PLEASE fell at the first last time at Ludlow but his work before that was superb including a win and 3 runner up finishes. If he picks up where he left off, which he should, he’ll take some stopping as he seeks to restore his position. MAXI JAZZ finished that race at Ludlow, landing 3rd at 80/1 odds and has strong place claims off that effort.
Top Tip – GO AS YOU PLEASE (4)
One to consider – MAXI JAZZ (6)
RACE 7: Leicester Racecourse
JEDHI is a proven useful operator on the flat and has shown potential in 3 hurdle starts. She’s well-treated off a 98 mark and should unlock plenty now going handicapping. DYLAN’S SEA SONG scored readily at Southwell last month but the 5lb rise might see her anchored enough for the selection to get her head in front.
Top Tip – JEDHI (3)
One to consider – DYLAN’S SEA SONG (6)
