ELEGIAC (6.00) seems to be thriving on his racing, despite a busy season, and can make a winning return to handicap company at Chelmsford City this evening.

He posted a fourth to Mekong over course and distance back in August but has improved since for Mark Johnston. Elegiac split two smart sorts in Outbox and Aspetar in a Conditions Stakes at Newbury, stepping up again following a York success a fortnight earlier. 

YOUNG JOHN (7.00) won’t be much of a price but is a handicap snip. He goes unpenalised for a six lengths victory in an apprentices’ race at Newcastle three days ago, having scored with lots to spare at Leicester at the end of October. 

BIRDS OF PREY (3.15) is well treated in the Marathonbet November Handicap at Doncaster, especially if a recent wind operation has been a success. Paul Nicholls’ gelding has been off the track since August but enjoys a 13lb pull with well-fancied Buzz on their running at Kempton in May. Birds of Prey scored on soft and heavy for John Oxx in Ireland, so conditions should be fine. 

Royal Line was sent off favourite 12 months ago and returns from a 199-day absence for another crack. He dropped away disappointingly to finish seventh after hitting the front a furlong out and is higher in the ratings. The race was won by heavily-backed Saunter and the same colours are carried this year by Reshoun, given a nice break following a Haydock success in the mud 63 days ago. 

Charlie Appleby saddles Wolf Country with a big chance, while the William Haggas-trained three-year-old My Lord And Master ran a cracker over a shorter trip at York and has scope for more improvement. 

The Listed Wentworth Stakes looks wide open, with Librisa Breeze bidding to erase the memory of a poor run behind Sands Of Mali at Ascot on Champions’ Day.

Donjuan Triumphant finished an excellent third that day and is probably the form pick. Time will tell if his exposed stall 16 position is the place to be and LAUGH A MINUTE (2.05) is preferred. An improving three-year-old won the race 12 months ago and Roger Varian’s gelding was last seen finishing runner-up in a Group 3 at Deauville. He landed the big Sales race here last September. 

KING’S ODYSSEY (2.40) is interesting in the feature handicap chase at Aintree. Evan Williams’ gelding was placed regularly in higher grade last season, bowing out with his customary solid third to The Storyteller at the Cheltenham Festival in March. He has winning form on heavy so any rain will be welcomed by connections. 

Wincanton hosts its popular Badger Ales Trophy meeting and last year’s winner PRESENT MAN (3.35) can make another bold bid under regular rider Bryony Frost. Paul Nicholls’s top weight has 2lb more to carry but with some heavy showers forecast, the track could be riding very similar to 12 months ago (soft) when Present Man led or disputed throughout.

He doesn’t have the benefit of a prep race this year but goes well fresh. Nicholls also saddles well-touted El Bandit, but this one prefers a sound surface. The race has a nice each-way shape to it if all 16 runners stand their ground and it’s hard to see Present Man being out of the frame.

    Crazy having two threads. It’s how tips are missed. Anyways. I’m off to Doncaster tomorrow if amyone can pick a winner or two in what looks like an absolute minefield.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    • Mr Fixit 10 months ago

      Not crazy at all – sensible in fact.

    • stevie 10 months ago

      It’s my opinion. When a regular top guy on here like elves isn’t sure either that confirmed it for me.

    • elvis parsley 10 months ago

      2-20 sandown on Sunday has 4 decent horses going.
      Elegant escape, terrefort, coo star sivola, and Thomas Patrick.
      All 4 are entered in the Ladbroke trophy at Newbury I think in a few weeks time and today’s winner will carry a 4lb penalty into that race.
      Normally it’s tough knowing which horses are here just before a blowout before taking on bigger races.
      This 4lb penalty puts another spanner in the works.
      Could be a race none want desperately to win.
      Not a tip but it wouldn’t surprise me if the front running Thomas Patrick led all the way (9-2)

      Anyone have any thoughts on this ??
