3.30 1m2f Class 6 Handicap – Samstar 5/2
Ran a big race back in 3rd in a 0-70 on Handicap debut on a mark of 60, the further 4 length back 4th won NTO and even the well beaten 6th just missed out by a length NTO making the form of the race pretty decent, she drops into a much easier 0-60 today against her age group, she’s very well bred with a good progressive pedigree and she should love the sharp left handed undulating course characteristics which suits front runners like Samstar who also gets a nice draw and with a lack of pace in this race she should get her own way of things upfront and in a weak looking race be hard to pass.
8.00 1m Class 3 Handicap – Ivegotthepower 7/2
Was coming on leaps and bounds as a 3yo with 3 wins from 6 races, 2 in his last 2 efforts before a big setback keeping off the track for nearly 2 years, on his comeback he broke well and ran up with a good early pace, was a little keen but on the whole shaped well until dropping away quickly down to race fitness, he came on plenty for the run and when last seen at Sandown last month he was alertly out of the stalls, dictated a good pace and looked in control entering the straight, all in behind was flat out trying to join him but he kept finding and thought well for 2 furlongs until the last furlong pole where he was finally joined and taken, he still stayed on well with plenty of credit for an over 2 lengths 4th, he showed plenty of past ability and looks likely to add to his winning tally now fully fit, dropped into a slightly easier race, dropped a handy lb from the handicapper and gets a great draw for a front runner.
8.30 1m2f Class 4 Handicap – Lawn Ranger 11/4
Having a excellent consistent season, record reading 33212, the win coming over this C&D in a 0-85 beating Mr Scaramanga who boosted the form when a huge 3rd in a strong class 2 at Epsom on Oaks day. Lawn Ranger only went up 3lb for that victory and ran another good race at Lingfield over further and beaten by a very well handicapped Oasis Fantasy who has a excellent record in that class. Now back in trip and back over a course he likes will be a big plus and gets a nice draw.
