RACE 1 Mountaineer Picks
This won’t take much winning, and MR. GRANITE has been found a good opening to strike. He gets what is only a tentative vote ahead of R PAPER CHASER and Alasaal.
WIN: MR. GRANITE
VALUE: R PAPER CHASER
RACE 2 Mountaineer Picks
SHY GUY’s fitness has to be taken on trust, but he was in great form at the back end of last year and might not be done improving yet on just his second start since undergoing a gelding operation. If the selection is in need of the run on his return from 262 days off, then BAD MEDICINE and Stormcoast will be there to pounce.
WIN: SHY GUY
VALUE: BAD MEDICINE
RACE 3 Mountaineer Picks
PRIDE OF WILKO is the one to be on in this allowance optional claimer, as she is proven at this level and is an 11-time course scorer. Others expected to go well are COME ON CITY and Yield.
WIN: PRIDE OF WILKO
VALUE: COME ON CITY
RACE 4 Mountaineer Picks
REEDER brings some strong recent form to the table in the context of this claimer, and this experienced campaigner is the one they all have to beat. MINI COSMO wouldn’t be a surprise winner, while Bird Call should also be taken seriously.
VALUE: MINI COSMO
RACE 5 Mountaineer Picks
YOUR MOM KNOWS got the better of a few of these, most notably Drunken Love (third) and Osmi Slew (fourth), when finishing second on his racecourse introduction here 15 days ago. That is the form to concentrate on, with TRIP TO SEOUL nominated as the main danger this time.
WIN: YOUR MOM KNOWS
VALUE: TRIP TO SEOUL
RACE 6 Mountaineer Picks
A select but competitive claimer in which WHISKEY SOUR is of plenty of interest going back up to 6f. Chances are also given to VALUE VOUCHER, who arrives in good nick, and Balk.
WIN: WHISKEY SOUR
VALUE: VALUE VOUCHER
RACE 7 Mountaineer Picks
SWEET LEAF has won two of her last three starts and could hardly have been more impressive when scoring here by almost seven lengths last time. She gets a confident vote to beat PASSALLTHECANDY and Miss Durlyn.
WIN: SWEET LEAF
RACE 8 Mountaineer Picks
INVOCATION got back on track courtesy of a ready 5f success here recently and the quick turnaround suggests he’s in good nick and ready to perform to a similar level. JOE’S KEEPER will ensure the selection doesn’t have it all his own way, and joins Sky Pilot on the shortlist.
VALUE: JOE’S KEEPER
RACE 9 Mountaineer Picks
INAWEOFNOONEATALL should do the business in the finale, as connections have found their filly a great opening to strike at the third attempt in this moderate maiden. She beat Nancy Knowsthemath (third) when finishing a nose second here last time, so perhaps HIGH VISION can put up most resistance.
VALUE: HIGH VISION
