Landed a place at a well backed 9/2 having advised at 9/1 from our only runner of the day.
4:30 Yarmouth – Rizzle Dizzle
Going to take a little chance on this one for Karl Burke who had shown promise on its first two runs last year especially when narrowly going down on the second of those occasions. However, then flopped at odds on before returning this year in handicap company and tailing off. However, that last run was on heavy ground which may not of suited whilst it was slow away also and never getting competitive. That was also a class 4 against all sexes whereas this is now a class 5 against her own sex, making it a considerably easier race. Given another short break and stepping up in trip on better ground should all see improvement so if able to return to the form it had initially shown then she is in with a shout.

2:30 Yarmouth – At Your Service
May look a very strange bet on form, or lack of anything shown, however, this very well bred gelding is surely capable of picking up a weak race like this, especially for an in form yard on its first start for John Butler. Jockey booking is a positive for this horse, just look at who rode the winner on its last start! Bookies are running scared of it, though I don’t expect the money to come for it early, I suspect the real money won’t be on till lunchtime or so. It is worth chancing getting on early though as if they think it is going to win then it will be shorter than this.

3:50 Chelmsford – Cliffs Of Capri
Looks a big price for a horse who has a fine record on the all weather winning three from seven runs including when last seen on an a/w surface. Forgive its last run which was on turf and first run for four months, plus it looked a non trier as this usually prominent racer was held up out the back of the field. Ideally drawn in stall 1 it can take the shortest route round from a good pitch, if they don;t go too hard up front then it should be thereabouts at the finish. It would surprise me if this horse was a similar price come race time!

4:20 Chelmsford – Udodontdou
Excellent record around this course of 11311 (4/5) yet hasn’t been disgraced on its last two starts elsewhere. When last seen here it was winning a handicap off a mark of 98 so only 4lb higher. Needs a strong pace to chase to be seen at its best which is why Spencer should be the perfect jockey if timing things right, whilst stall 4 gives it plenty of cover and though may need some luck they often swing wide around the bend. Only concern is the lack of yard form as their runners have been disappointing, however, most have been without a chance anyway and their most recent runner went much closer finishing third today. Could be that it is a sign that the corner is turning. Plenty of weight to carry though I am hopeful it can outclass this opposition.
