PLAY SMARTER

TIGER ORCHID has done well in bumpers this summer, winning 2 of his 3 starts, and he’s fancied to continue that good work over hurdles and make a successful debut. Kavanaghs Cross is an obvious contender on the pick of his form in Ireland, with Dan’s Cross also in the mix following a promising start in this sphere at Cartmel.

PRINTING DOLLARS made an excellent start for this yard over fences recently and is potentially thrown-in on old form, so he gets the nod back over hurdles. In-form Golden Chancer looks in line for another bold showing and Princess Ruby is a notable handicap debutant.

PLAY SMARTER

INGLEBY HOLLOW is in rude health at present having been successful on his last 2 Flat starts, and now back over hurdles for a new yard, he’s taken to gain compensation for a luckless late run in the Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen in July. Mrs Hyde is not one to write off given her solid novice form, while Island Nation also needs taking seriously on the back of an impressive C&D win.

GREAT BRITISH BONUS SCHEME The Great British Bonus (GBB) offers multiple bonuses of up to £20,000 per eligible race for British-bred fillies and mares. PHOTOGRAPHY Racegoers may take photographs for private purposes. Under no circumstances may photographs taken on the racecourse be used for publication. FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY IS ESSENTIALLY DANGEROUS WHERE HORSES ARE INVOLVED. YOU ARE ASKED NOT TO USE FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY ANYWHERE IN THE GRANDSTAND ENCLOSURE AND PARTICULARLY NEAR THE WINNERS ENCLOSURE.

NO TRACK CROSSING PERMITTED BETWEEN ENCLOSURES This policy is in place to help protect track conditions and ensure the safety and enjoyment of racegoers. The steady rise in crowd numbers in recent years has in turn increased the risk of damage to the track with much higher volumes of racegoers crossing between races year on year. Therefore, this policy helps us maintain a safe level of track condition for both horse and jockey. Further, we are bound by our Sports Ground Safety Certificate and so this policy, along with e-ticketing data capture, allows us to more accurately monitor our actual crowd numbers in line with venue capacities.

With just a handful of runs over fences to her name, SOMETHINBOUTANGELA probably has more to offer as a chaser and she is taken to make it 2-2 over this C&D.

MASRUR will be of strong interest if the market speaks in his favour, given that he represents the trainer-jockey combination that struck with a well-supported newcomer in a similar race here last month. In the C&D bumper in question, Solway Molly finished second to the Stuart Crawford-trained winner and she may again be the bride’s maid. Lou Marvelous is well worth a second look in the betting.
