WEDNESDAY 6 NOVEMBER
(12.50) SHE’S A UNICORN (15/8, William Hill) is progressing with each start, and Tom Dascombe’s charge arrives on a hat-trick of wins having already struck over this course and distance as well as at Doncaster latterly.
The Garswood filly sported a first-time visor when winning here in similar conditions, beating Ambyfaeivine by just over two lengths, and she followed up nine days later under a penalty on Town Moor to deny Gold Souk by a half-length, winning a shade readily with the front pair pulling a long way clear.
She is only 1lb higher here, but she has the services of 7lbs claimer Poppy Fielding who was on board when she won over course and distance, and with the potential to improve while handling the conditions she could land her hat-trick.
(3.00) MICHAELS CHOICE (9/2, William Hill) doubled his tally when successful in soft ground at Brighton last month, and it may be worth siding with William Jarvis’ charge to follow up here with conditions similar.
The War Command gelding struck by a half-length over The Lamplighter, and a subsequent 4lbs rise in the weights looks fair and might not be enough to stop a repeat if he turns up in similar fettle to contest a relatively weak contest for the grade.
He remains relatively lightly-raced and may still have some scope for better to come on the back of his success last time, and every chance he can post another big effort.
12.20 – Beauty Stone
12.50 – She’s A Unicorn
1.25 – Mishriff
1.55 – Camahawk
2.30 – International Lion
3.00 – Michaels Choice
3.35 – Astrophysics
4.05 – Gamesters Icon
(1.15) CHOOCHOOBUGALOO (11/4 Bet365) often travels well in her races, and the Rail Link mare got off the mark over hurdles at Kelso back in January with a defeat of Lady Samback, havign finished in the frame in his three previous outings since joining this yard from Laura Young.
Sam Brake’s charge ran poorly next time at Uttoxeter, but she shaped well when bouncing back over fences for the first time to go down only by a neck behind Two Hoots. Although she wasn’t seen out again until returning from more than six months off tho find only Percy Thrower too good at Uttoxeter last month.
She should strip fitter for that run, and reverting to the larger obstacles for this latest run then she could go one better here.
(3.25) A first-hurdle fall at Kelso two starts ago aside, PRINCE KHURRAM (6/1, Bet365) has been in decent heart and got back on the scoresheet at Bangor latest when beating G’day Aussie by a half-length, and the Nayef gelding can follow up here.
Although perhaps not the force of old, he has won from higher than this current mark of 111 in the past and he has the services of top 3lbs claimer Lorcan Williams for this latest outing which will help to ease his burden at the weights, and he could run another solid race here as he bids to strike again.
He is still fairly treated on the pick of his old form, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him firmly in the mix again here.
12.40 – Ashington
1.15 – Choochoobugaloo
1.45 – Burnage Boy
2.20 – Petite Ganache
2.50 – Jeu De Mots
3.25 – Prince Khurram
3.55 – Gemologist
(2.40) Lightly-raced JASMIN DES BORDES (7/2, Bet365) can continue to show race-by-race progress, and the Great Pretender gelding can get off the mark here.
David Pipe’s charge has found the frame in two of his three starts over hurdles, returning from eight months off the track at Worcester in September to finish eight lengths’ third behind Win My Wings, which was his first run since wind surgery and he could improve again.
The runner-up has won since, and he switches now to the handicap ranks where an opening mark of 120 may not prove beyond him given he has the potential for improvement, and every chance he can open his account now.
(3.10) SIMPLY THE BETTS (10/1, Bet365) could be worth chancing on his reappearance to get back to winning ways, and Harry Whittingtons’ charge won first time up last term at Hexham so could well repeat the feat here.
The Arcadio gelding also registered a win last term at Warwick back in May as well as that Hexham success which came on the back of five months off the track where he beat Informateur by a half-length.
He perhaps wasn’t able to show his best on quicker ground the next twice in better company at Ascot and Doncaster, and his stamina might have been stretched on the latter occasion when finishing the thick end of twenty lengths adrift of Big Time Dancer.
Back at two miles now and with conditions likely to be more in his favour, he could find improvement switching to chasing now and he can make a winning seasonal return over the larger obstacles.
1.00 – Minnie Escape
1.35 – Mcfabulous
2.05 – Big Meadow
2.40 – Jasmin Des Bordes
3.10 – Simply The Betts
3.45 – Neville’s Cross
4.15 – Big G
(4.25) MUNFALLET (SP) struck his last win some three years ago at Haydock when trained by David Brown, and following a short spell with Adrian Nicholls he subsequently moved to Denis Coakley where the Royal Applause gelding continues on his losing streak.
However, the Royal Applause gelding could be worth chancing in an easier contest than he has taken in in recent outings, and while he only finished fifth latest over course and distance he was beaten less than two lengths.
His mark continues to slide as a result of his lengthy losing streak, and he looks well-treated to go close if putting his best foot forward so might be worth chancing to snap his losing streak.
2.15 – Sir Ottoman
2.45 – Kitten On The Keys
3.20 – So Suave
3.50 – Lily’s Prince
4.25 – Munfallet
5.00 – Scream
5.30 – Come Back And Stay
6.00 – Yarraman
(5.40) DEPOSE (11/8, Bet365) stepped up on her debut effort at Lingfield in July behind Dark Lady at Lingfield to find only one too good on her next outing over this course, and Hugo Palmer’s charge can improve again stepping up in trip.
The Kingman filly has worn a hood for both starts, and she shaped last time as if worth a try at this extra distance given how she finished off the race to only go down by a short-head in a blanket finish between the first three horses home.
She surely has more to offer, and with the potential for improvement to come she can get off the mark here at the third attempt.
(6.10) SILVER SAMURAI (4/1, Ladbrokes) bolted up at Brighton last month, travelling strongly throughout in the mud to post a near-five lengths’ victory over Sunset Breeze, and Marco Botti’s charge can follow up that success.
The Cable Bay colt has shown improvement with each run, finding the frame on both previous outings on the all-weather at Wolverhampton and Chelmsford prior to striking when switched to turf over six furlongs latest.
Back up in trip returning to polytrack, he can progress again with both his Brighton win and earlier runner-up effort here being franked since with subsequent winners coming out of each race, and a mark of 79 on his handicap debut might not prevent further progress.
4.40 – Maid Millie
5.10 – Oriental Mystique
5.40 – Depose
6.10 – Silver Samurai
6.40 – Buridan

8.10 – Percy’s Prince
(5.20) MAISIE MOO (SP) is given another chance having lost any hope when last seen out last week where her saddle slipped; but the Swiss Spirit filly had won the time before at Kempton, and a repeat of that run might be good enough if she can avoid any mishaps.
Shaun Keightley’s charge was scoring for the first time in that Kempton success, beating Rock In Society by a neck, and her last outing is easily excused.
Her earlier Kempton win has seen the form since boosted, and she could be worth siding with to get back on track if she can replicate that winning outing from just 4lbs higher.
(6.25) TURANGA LEELA (2/1, William Hill) boasts a decent record at this venue, and the Paco Boy mare could be worth siding with to get back to winning ways.
John Mackie’s charge has been in decent form recently without getting her head in front following her last course and distance win back in January on her debut for this yard. However, she has finished runner-up in five of her nine subsequent outings which includes three times here, and she wasn’t disgraced when last seen out when finishing fourth to Betsey Trotter.
She may possibly just be in the handicapper’s grip now, but given her record at this venue and overall consistency then she might be worth chancing to snap her losing run and get back on the scoresheet.

5.20 – Maisie Moo
