2:17 Hamilton – racingtv.com Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-65) 6f
ABSOLUTE DREAM comes here in decent form having finished fourth or better in each of his last seven starts which includes a win at Redcar last month and the Dream Ahead gelding can get back on the winning trail here.
Richard Fahey’s charge ran out a head winner that day from She’s A Deva and subsequent outings have seen him finish third at Newcastle and runner-up at Redcar latest last month when denied only a half-length.
The drop to sprinting has certainly been a good move and while the handicapper asks another question here with a 2lbs rise he ought to remain competitive an he has run well here in the past.
3:00 Warwick – MansionBet’s Faller Insurance Handicap Chase Cl3 (4yo+ 0-140) 2m4f
PINK EYED PEDRO has been running well in defeat and the Dr Massini gelding can get back on the winning trail here for the first time since scoring at Chepstow last October.
David Brace’s charge has finished runner-up the last twice in outings at Worcester where he might not have seen out the trip and latterly Cartmel where the lengthy run-in there may not have suited as he travelled well in the race but faded on the run to the line behind Roi De Dubai.
He did have plenty of weight on that occasion where he was giving the winner 11lbs so it was a creditable run in the circumstances and he can race here from a mark that ought to see him competitive once more.
3:10 Leicester – Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap (IRE Incentive Race) Cl3 (3yo+ 0-95) 5f
GINGER JAM hasn’t been the most consistent but he has won twice this term and arrives on the back of a win at Bath earlier in the month and it might be worth chancing Nigel Tinkler’s charge to follow up.
The Major Cadeaux gelding was wearing cheekpieces for the first time there as he ran out a neck winner over Nibras Again, scoring a shade readily after his rider dropped her whip late on. He’s only been pushed up 2lbs for that success which leaves him still on a workable mark and he’s won off this rating in the past so he can remain competitive.
While he’s not a certainty to be in the same form he can make his presence felt again if arriving in similar form and no surprise to see him in the mix.
4:10 Warwick – MansionBet Watch And Bet Handicap Chase Cl5 (4yo+ 0-105) 2m
THE BULLET GATE surely would have won at Market Rasen when last seen almost four months ago but for falling two out and it might be worth chancing the Touch Of Land gelding here to make amends.
Robin Dicken’s charge wore blinkers on that occasion and the application of the headgear seeened to bring about some improvement as he travelled better than had been the case and was beginning to assert last time when coming to grief.
He’s been given time to recover and assuming confidence hasn’t been affected he could do better this time around where he can gain a first win over the larger obstacles from a potentially lenient mark given he remains open to improvement in the headgear.
7:30 Wolverhampton – Download The At The Races App Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-55) 2m½f
BLUE BERET isn’t the most reliable but the Helmet filly is useful at this level when on her game and Simon Dow’s charge is chanced here to go well.
A winner at Windsor back in July she has a decent record on this surface and venue albeit over shorter trips although she didn’t do a lot wrong when finishing four lengths’ fifth over C&D in August behind Blazon.
She might have been given too much to do there having been held up to get the trip, but that form has since seen the winner and third both register subsequent wins and she could be worth chancing back over this longer distance where she’s unexposed.
