3:35 Ascot- Makzeem 8/1 (0.5pt ew)
Makzeem was an impressive winner for us a week ago of a mark of 97 and arrives in this race with a 6lb penalty. He is now rated 105 which makes him 2lb well in. Despite his best form being at Newmarket, he did run well over C&D in July finishing sixth. Roger Charlton is in fantastic form at present with 6 wins from 24 runners (25% Strike Rate) and a chance is taken on this progressive 4 year old.
4:30 Redcar- Father Bertie 8/1 (0.5pt ew)
Father Bertie is bidding for a hattrick of wins in this race having won off a handicap mark of 86 in 2015 and 87 last year. He has been in poor form this season and as a result comes into the race off a handicap mark of 82. Tim Easterby is a fantastic target trainer so you can imagine this will have been his target for a while. He is worth chancing at a course where all of his best performances have come.
5:30 Limerick- Voyageofdiscovery 14/1 (0.5pt ew)
Voyageofdiscovery is a massive cliff horse for the article but I still think he is worth taking a chance on with his handicap mark continuing to drop. He has been staying on well over 6f recently so the step back up to 7f will suit. Wayne Lordan retains the ride in a race where he runs off a mark of 55 compared to his last winning mark of 77.
8:45 Wolverhampton- Send Up 7/4 (1pt)
Send Up is a typical Sir Mark Prescott improver once stepped up in trip on her handicap debut. She won off a mark of 58 at Brighton over 1m4f and then followed up at Chelmsford off a mark of 63 over 1m5f. She now runs in another AW handicap off a mark of 66 having only won by ½ length on both starts. That rise in the handicap looks well within her grasp and a chance is taken that she can make it a hattrick of wins since going handicapping.
