Over the course of the week, Andrew will be offering his selection for the upcoming days of racing, take a look at his daily offerings to see whether you could pocket some cash.

Monday February 19th

2.30 Carlisle Pistol

This dual course winner has tumbled down the weights and is now 16lb lower than when winning here two years ago.

He may be on the decline but he ran in a much better race than this when last seen in December and having been freshened up he may now be on a mark where he can get back to winning ways.

Tuesday February 20th

2.10 Taunton The Russian Doyen

Colin Tizzard's five year old looked a useful recruit to hurdling when making a winning start over timber at Exeter in December and although he found the opposition too hot in a Grade 1 at Sandown last time he should be more at home in this company and is selected to get back to winning ways here.


Wednesday February 21st

7.15 Kempton Lord George

James Fanshawe's five year old produced a career best to win over course and distance last month and has yet to finish out of the first two in four outings on the polytrack here.

He has one serious rival here in Watersmeet but the visor that was applied for the first time here appeared to bring out some improvement and he is taken to follow up.


Thursday February 22nd

2.10 Sedgefield Cooper's Friend

This gelding takes a significant drop in grade after contesting a much better contest when last seen at Carlisle in December and while he has not won for a while, his handicap mark has plunged 20lb since winning over course and distance in August 2016.

He is clearly not the force of old but must hold a decent chance in this company.

Friday February 23rd

4.50 Exeter Cresswell Breeze

Anthony Honeyball's mare steps back to the grade she won in on her reappearance at Fontwell in November after commendable efforts at Sandown and Warwick since then.

Now 7lb higher than for her last win, her young pilot takes off a valuable 7lb and despite giving weight to all her rivals here, she should have the necessary class and stamina to come good here.
