DURSTAN (2.40) is strongly fancied to land the William Hill-sponsored 1m 4f handicap at York.

David Simcock trains the progressive three-year-old for Highclere Thoroughbreds and Durstan is on a hat-trick following successes at Chester (soft) and Doncaster (good to firm). He stayed the St Leger trip well on Town Moor and 3lb apprentice Sean Davis has impressed this season. Top weight Anythingtoday is raised 7lb for his wide-margin Newcastle success and any significant rain would help.

SECRET ADVISOR (3.00) will appreciate the return to quick ground in the inaugural running of the bet365 Trophy at Newmarket. The Godolphin horse is at home in big fields, having scooped the Melrose Handicap from 18 rivals at York a couple of seasons ago and Secret Advisor shaped well enough on his comeback at Royal Ascot to merit an interest. Ben Vrackie bids to go one better than at Royal Ascot and is a powerful market leader.

At Ascot, DUCKETT'S GROVE (3.25) is interesting on his handicap debut. Ed Walker's colt, the sole three-year-old in the line-up, ran fifth to very smart private Secretary and Spanish Mission in a 1m 3f Listed event at Goodwood, weakening over a furlong out. This shorter trip should be ideal and Duckett's Grove is a bit of value against favourite American Graffiti.

    Pink eyed Pedro 6-10 ffos las Nap/NB 9-4.

    Won over hurdles easily on Monday, won hunter this year and 10 point to points so knows what a fence is.
    Came 3rd in champion novice hunter at Stratford in may, a good effort that, jumps really well and travels well through his races, stables last 2 runners have won too.
    Pretty sure 9-4 will be shorter by the off

  12. 2 years ago

    4 mins till off, ed walker had 3 winners today, has big oputsider in 520, just dropped down to 6s, horse on same mark as last win and the two from that have won last time, the 2nd class 3 off 93, decent if can overturn 3 duck eggs.

    • 2 years ago

      lol BOOM.

    • 2 years ago

      Mountain Rescue 12/1 545A, up 3lbs for a win LTO, steps up a class and seemingly prefers Newmarket but was winning last May off 90 for Charlie Wall, will run today off 74 at 12/1.. NOT THOROUGHLY CHECKED THE RACE AT ALL, but for small stakes in case anyone has some spare change.

      star shield the fav, does have OK form, so maybe above horse for places 11/4

  13. 2 years ago

    what a horse that KINGS ADVICE is by the way, when will it slow down? 7 out of 8 in the UK

  14. maverick 2 years ago

    Waiting on theplug NAP Powerallied in the 20.30 Chester for £367 can someone have a look at the race for me and also theplug how confident are you in your pick mate? Cheers

  15. 2 years ago

    i looked at it whilst making an acca and left it alone.

    these silks obviously love chester, and the last two weeks they’ve smashed it and they’ve already had a 25/1 winner on the card, so you have to expect at least one more to go in.

    POWERALLIED won over CD off 85, last july, tonight he is 4lbs lower. the 2nd is a pig, dropped about 25lbs before winning. the 3rd and 4th horses he beat that day arent too bad though. the worry is, last time he was on CD and came a close up 2nd, so it looks as though that was his trying day, the horse who won failed next time out and Zappa Case wasnt too far bad in third who did well a few months back but by the time this race came around he was spent.

    He’s gone up 1lb for that 2nd so is well capable I suppose but definitely not for me.

    BOSSIPOP – has beaten some nice horses over CD last Sept and only 2lbs above that. 1lbs lower than his last win.

    ALSVINDER – has won 3 outta 5 on the AW off a highest 98, he runs on turf off 79, performed poorly over CD lto, but has won class 2s, this is C4.

    BOWSON FRED – decent form decently weighted…

    DESERT ACE – up 4lbs for win LTO, horse in 3rd has won since.. trainer had couple winners big luke morris takes over…

    BELLEVARD – decently weighted, beat PUDS and he has done well in class 2s recently, decent chance back on last win mark

    Zac Brown – 4lbs higher than win 2 starts back, rich kingscote though.. probably wont touch this either but mayve been pulled recently which is good sign but no.

    there are like 4 more horses… I HOPE your horse wins, but this is a 100% cash out for me, paper form giving half the field a great chance and the other half a shout… BOL.

  16. maverick 2 years ago

    Cheers database… cashout only £56 with PP which is pathetic so I’m just letting it ride 🤞

    • 2 years ago

      ah that is shocking, however dont turn your nose up at 56, what if you took that & put it on a treble 2moro which you wouldn’t necessarily do and it landed for four figures… using 1 from alan, 1 from pom 1 from yourself…. etc.

      the 4lbs below CD success is solid enough and it clearly has a good chance, so letting it ride on based on that offer is well within reason, however a free 56 treble for 2moro is almost as good as 350, good luck

  17. 2 years ago

    BOOOOOOOM mav, and because u made me look at the race, i was on BELLVARDE at 20/1 ahahah such a shame, glad you sneaked it though.

    SKYBET are an absolute joke, you have the tightest race ever and they close the stream seconds after it, WHAT IS GOING ON, bet365 is the absolute business.

    • maverick 2 years ago

      Ya beauty glad the cashout was rubbish or a wld have took it Haha 👌

    • elvis parsley 2 years ago
