5.40 Novice Stakes and Buffalo River ran well here back in August but got turned over at short odds when going down to James Tate’s Name The Wind. That appeared a decent effort and will hope that will be good enough tonight. The other to appeal is Appleby’s Golden Valour the last run can be ignored as the horse jumped the path at Yarmouth.
Selection Buffalo River Next Best Golden Valour
6.10 Plenty more debutants here however I am going with two with some form Sovereign Grant has run OK and Sir Michael Stoute likes to bring his horses on more slowly owned by the Queen and unlikely to be present ! Ever Changing is one from the Gosden yard who doesn’t look the best but could well pick up a small race like this.
Selection Sovereign Grant Next Best Ever Changing
6.40 Very ordinary race and not one to get to excited about, Casper The Cub ran better than the odds suggested last time so hoping that improvement can continue. Silver Crescent has been disappointing but this is a weak race that could well surprise after quite a few runs.
Selection Casper The Cub Next Best Silver Crescent
7.10 A few to concentrate on here, but the profile of La Maquina is one that interests me most. Only beaten 3/4 length last time and now has William Buick aboard, lightly raced too. The other is Redgrave ran well here in September but never found a change of gear at Chester, hoping return to the AW will suit.
Selection La Maquina Next Best Redgrave
7.40 A few last time winners here and will go with Dragon Mountain who has run really well here on the last two occasions and won. Brexitmeansbrexit is the other that is in good form although Richard Hannon is not.

8.10 7 runner conditions race and quite a few decent types contest the field. Cenotaph has been in tremendous form and looks likely to pick this up as well. The other that appeals is Gulliver who is from the Hugo Palmer yard ran well here in 2017 and if can repeat that will go close.
Selection Cenotaph Next Best Gulliver
8.40 Competitive sprint, where I side with Chica De La Noche beaten fav here recently, failed to make all this looks a similar event and should go close. Duke Of Cosimo goes well here and is the next best.
Chica De La Noches Next Best Duke Cosimo
9.10 Decent race to close with for a change and Sir Michael Stoute’s Elector is the one that I side with after being well backed last time here. Hopefully can make amends tonight. The consistent War Glory is also one that is very consistent.
