Stratford 13:50 – Gimme Five 11/4
Gimme Five built on his Uttoxeter success when chasing home the exciting Goodbye Dancer over C&D last month and, with further improvement on the cards, he can defy top-weight and emerge victorious

Stratford 14:50 – No Likey 11/4
Philip Hobbs-trained NO LIKEY. A useful hurdler, he looks certain to develop into an even better chase performer judged on three promising efforts in this sphere to date (winning one) and another big run looks assured.

Stratford 15:25 – DOUCHKIRK 10/3
John O’Shea’s gelding has a good record at this venue, won and placed twice in three visits

Stratford 16:25 – West End 11/8 NB
Canter when opening his account LTO in Southwell recent, with Ed Cookson’s claim (5lb) theoretically cancelling out the majority of his 7lb penalty

Fontwell 17:25 – Couloir Extreme EVS NAP
Won’t have a better chance to get off the mark over hurdles if he can brush up on his jumping

Bellewstown 19:15 – Thomas Ledger 11/4
Second LTO at Cork when finishing ahead of a future winners back in third & Forth. That form looks solid enough for me to have a punt


Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – Avenier Certain 12/1

NAP Hamilton Park 18:20 Scottish Strand 7/2
NB Tipperary 18:00 Fit For The Job 7/2 l
IWAC Lingfield Park 19:10 Zinnobar  6/1
