Race Preview

GOLD LEADER secured a win last time out as she stormed her way to a big success at Uttoxeter 35 days ago.

She is back 9lb higher for this contest which clearly makes this more challenging.

However, Gold Leader looks to have more in her, so she could defy it.

LESSANKAN has been in very good heart for a while now and was a runner-up at Ffos Las three weeks ago.

That was a handicap chase from a 5lb lower mark that he will be for Monday’s return to the hurdles.

Lessankan has the form to put himself into the picture.

MONTY’S AWARD needs some respect in this one after a third place finish at the course and distance last time out.

He slides 2lb and looked far more at home on his return to the hurdles. Monty’s Award can make his presence felt with any kind of repeat performance.

BIRD ON THE WIRE is worth a look for the shortlist in horse racing tips as he has gone well the last twice.

He was third at Hexham last month, on a credible run with the cheekpieces on for the first time.

Bird On The Wire got off the mark in January and could have a chance.


Ones to watch: Lessankan 7/1, Monty’s Award 33/1

LUCKY LOVER BOY went close last time out with a runner-up spot in a handicap hurdle at Huntingdon.

He has been eased 1lb from that effort which puts him back in the frame as he’s also carrying a big claimer.

Lucky Lover Boy hasn’t won for a fair while but he should get close.

MASTER MALACHY opened this campaign with back-to-back handicap victories and impressed again last time out.

The hattrick wasn’t achieved, but he went well for a third-place finish at course and distance after a 9lb rise. He should be right in it.

PILLAR OF STEEL is interesting on the shortlist for racing tips. She has won twice before at course and distance.

She also rattled the crossbar in a handicap hurdle at Worcester a couple of weeks ago and takes on a fair 2lb rise.


Ones to watch: Pillar Of Steel 7/2, Master Malachy 4/1

Race Preview

MY POEM was a winner last time out, scoring on a 2m trip at Uttoxeter a month ago.

That was a positive start to life in this sphere and My Poem only gets a 3lb rise to deal with. That recent run was after a break of more than six months, so she should be right back there.

DURRAGH opened the season with a very good 2m handicap score at Perth back in May.

She was last seen two weeks ago when taking a credible fourth at Market Rasen. Being eased 1lb back after that gives her a reasonable chance.

ULTIMATE FAME has gone close the last twice and now steps into handicapping for the first time.

The former bumper winner was a runner-u in novice hurdle three weeks ago at Newton Abbot and she could rate as a danger.

Tip: DURRAGH 6/1

Ones to watch: My Poem 3/1, Ultimate Fame 9/2

Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 1m 1 1/2f

Race Preview

MYRISTICA is seeking a hattrick when stepping into action on Monday in this wonderfully competitive racecard.

There have been two course and distance wins for her, one of those on her penultimate run.

Myristica followed up with a good score at Beverley two weeks ago.

Naturally, the handicapper has been trying to reel her in a bit more, but Myristca looks like being the one to beat.

MENAI BRIDGE was a runner-up at Lingfield on his latest run and the form from that could put him in the frame on Monday.

He has won around a third of his flat contents before, the most recent of those at Lingfield in February. Menai Bridge looks competitive enough to get in it.

FISHABLE isn’t to be ruled out in horse racing tips for this one as he has three previous course and distance wins.

It’s been a while since he has gotten his nose in front. But he has slid 1lb down below his last winning mark. Fishable’s yard is in form so he gets on the shortlist.


Ones to watch: Menia Bridge 9/2, Fishable 7/2

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 8
Distance: 6f

Race Preview

MUSIC SOCIETY is a previous course and distance. The more recent win came at Catterick on his penultimate run last month.

His follow-up was two weeks ago when he never got in the frame at Pontefract.

He was never in a position to strike. A bounce back isn’t out of the question.

CALL ME GINGER was a winner last time out. That was a handicap score at the course and distance.

That was a big upward swing in form. A follow-up is not guaranteed, but Call Me Ginger is on the shortlist because of that win.

QUEST FOR FUN is the final selection for racing tips in this one. He got off the mark for the season three weeks ago.

That was a fine run in a handicap three weeks ago at this same distance.

He, therefore, brings some claims even though Quest For Fun comes up 7lb.


Ones to watch: Quest For Fun 11/4, Music Society 6/1

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 1m 5f

Race Preview

GOLDEN FLAME should find the going a little easier in his one as it represents a dip into much calmer waters.

He has been out of the form the last twice, however.

The most recent of those was at Newcastle just over a week ago, a race won by Trueshan at Newcastle.

THRONE HALL is worth a look as he comes up a fair 3lb rise following a second-place last time out.

That was in a competitive handicap at York three weeks ago. Throne Hall remains winless since spring last year, but is no forlorn hope here.

CHARGING THUNDER books a spot on the shortlist as he has had a pretty consistent season.

It’s a season that includes a victory on his penultimate run, which was at Pontefract in June.

Dealing with a 5lb rise for that win, Charging Thunder was fifth at York 24 days ago.


Ones to watch: Charging Thunder 4/1, Glasses Up 10/3
