13.15 Pontefract

First up we have the Mary Clark ‘Favourite Day Of The Year’ Handicap (Div 1) over 6f and the horse I like to look off is INEXES for trainer Ivan Furtado and jockey Jason Hart. He is a C&D winner here and found his feet again when 2nd of 6 in a handicap at Hamilton 29 days ago. He remains on the same mark that he was on at Hamilton and he can improve again. When he was a C&D winner he was only 1lb higher, even though it was last year that success, he is one to consider for me and I will be tipping him E/W.


14.30 Curragh

In the Comer Group International Irish St Leger Trial Stakes (Group 3) over 1m 6f and my pick is DELPHI for trainer Aiden O’ Brien who has won this Group 3 for the last six years. He is a fast improver who completed a hat trick when he won last time out at Leopardstown. He is stepping up in trip here and will be an interesting contender for this event who is occupying draw 1. His main contender will be Search For A Song who run a blinder in The Tattersalls Gold Cup here 19 days ago and the winner of the Irish St Leger. She is firmly in the mix and this will be a cracking contest but with Aiden O’Brien experience in this race will be vital and I have DELPHI to edge this.


14.50 Pontefract

My Selection in the EBF Highfield Farm Flying Fillies’ Stakes (Listed) over 6f and my selection is an E/W selection and the horse in question is MAGICAL JOURNEY for James Tate and Jockey PJ McDonald. She a lightly raced winner when she won on her first start at Beverley back in September last year. She run well last time out at Haydock in a handicap over 6f 40 days ago. She should be suited to the ground and is one to consider here.She has a good draw here and can feature in this contest. Shades Of Blue could be a leading player here and will be one to watch.


16.10 Chester

POWERALLIED loves it here as his last six wins have came from here but he is yet to get going so far this season. He is on a good mark and I wouldn’t be surprised if he runs a big race here. His form hasn’t been great and isn’t one to note but with form here I am taking my chances with him in the Chester Rugby Club Handicap (Div 2) over 6f. He is one of the experienced heads at the age of 7. Mutabaahy last 4 wins have came on AW Turf and run well at Catterick 10 days ago and can make an improve again going off the same mark. Thrills In Manila will look to get involved and Tom Marquand will take advantage of a career low mark and a good draw.


17.40 Chester

In the last race of the afternoon at Chester in the EatOutToHelpOut At The White Horse Handicap over 1m 6f 87y. My tip is MADEEH for trainer Philip Kirby and Jockey Kevin Stott. He is going well at the moment and still had more up his sleeve when winning at Musselburgh last time out at the end of July. He does have a hard draw to navigate from (draw 14) but Kevin Stott is a Jockey to watch out for and I feel he can overcome the challenge from that draw and I feel he is capable off winning this and completing a hat trick. Deposit should go well again for trainer David Simcock and can feature in the run in. One to watch in the market is Sefton Warrior who runs from draw 3.
