We start our day’s previews with a Class 4 seven furlong handicap.
The Mark Johnson horse Subversive looks an early favourite for this as he’s falling down the weights at a rate of knots and probably shouldn’t be able to be any lower than this without finally getting his head in front once again, he should give a good account today but I still believe there maybe one or two who will continue his losing run.
Peak storm in my eyes is very overpriced for this currently at 7/2; he’s been competing in much better company than this as of late and generally seems to save his best for this track and his form proves that having won three times this year around here and finishing second three times also.
Goring looked a real prospect earlier in the season but has become a bit of a hard one to follow as even though he has the ability to do well he still races very green for a three year old but he’s dismissed at your peril as if he decides he wants to run he can be very dangerous.
If the rain comes over night then Sarangoo will defiantly be one to keep a close eye on; she destroyed the field around here back in August on heavy ground and even with the ground probably being soft as it stands she’ll almost certainly be in with a chance of the places.
Peak Storm (WIN)
We head to Yarmouth for our second preview of the day a Class 3 six furlong Conditions Stakes.
It’s a little strange to see Music Master competing at this level as he’s been competing in Group company for the last twelve months and hasn’t been disgraced badly in any of them; he’s also notched up a Group 3 win in that time so they are probably looking at getting his confidence back and his winning back on track.
Barracuda Boy is a regular at this level and is usually thereabouts in these type of races; he’s got a very good turn of foot and if this race is run slow he could give the favourite a real stiff task I the final furlong.
Hallelujah has a long absence to deal with and even though she finished five lengths behind the favourite back in July 2014 she’s not weighted at all to reverse that form so may need a little luck here today.
Mobsta is another dealing with a long layoff and could be anything after wining on near heavy ground when last seen at Doncaster; he is defiantly one to keep an eye on especially if he runs well today ad gets a tentative vote to grab a place in this.
Mobsta (E/W if 9/2+)
We stay at Yarmouth for our final preview of the day a five furlong nursery handicap.
SDS and Paul Hanagan have both won on this card in the past three years with the former being most recent, they both have a good chance to go in again today.
SDS ride Flexible Flyer was sent off favourite last time out at Haydock but could only manage eighth after lading for a very long time; he probably needs to be held up a little near the front and if doing so today he could give SDS his second win on this card in two years.
Paul Hanagan is currently on the market favourite Emjayem who was unlucky to not catch the winner at Windsor last week but he was returning from an absence and may strip fitter here today.
Belvoir Diva is another who impressed last time out after a long absence and is another who should strip fitter this time out; she ‘s been getting better and better in handicap company and if reproducing he maiden win form at the end of last year she could be a real danger here.
But my selection today goes to Doctor Parkes; he’s down to a very low mark and this drop in grade after competing in a lot better company than this for some is a real positive for him to get into the mix and at a current 20/1 price he is defiantly worth taking a chance on in this lower grade.
Doctor Parkes (E/W)
