    Some very tight handicaps today. I’m always looking for value bets when I prepare my ratings, often backing horses rated a few points below the top-rated, but at much more attractive odds.

    At York, I’m going for:

    2.20 FLYING CLARETS, rated just a point behind the favourite, Abhisheka.<br>3.20 PRINCE TUM TUM, who is just behind Marshman. Efidium is also of interest.<br>4.20 FOLGA, top-rated.

    Salisbury<br>2.00 DESERT ISLAND DISC, clear top-rated.

    3.00 PIC UP STICKS, joint top with Malapropism.

    The ratings have been doing quite well lately, which can be expected at this time of year with form and going settling down.

    I though Fullandby shaped well at Musselburgh last time over an inadequate 5f. Still lightly raced for a sprinter he looks ready to hit peak form. Darley takes the ride who is 2 from 5 on him.

    The York placepot looks interesting today…

    96 x 10p lines for me (£9.60)

    2:20 – AUCTION ROOM, FLYING CLARETS<br>(The Godolphin favourite is promising but has a bit to prove in terms of form)

    2:50 – FOLIO, GALLOWS HILL, ‘FAV’<br>(Hard to oppose the favourite but the presence of some interesting newcomers leads me to chuck in a likely improver with only one poor soft-ground effort in the book)

    3:20 – PRINCE TUM TUM, EFIDIUM<br>(Trappy kind of race but these have conditions to suit – course, going, trip – and are guaranteed fit, unlike the narrowly rejected Neon Blue)

    3:50 – PROWESS<br>(Slightly risky banker, but should be able to take a maiden like this on the form she has shown and probably getss the trip ok, whilst the Stoute horses are really struggling for form and Spell Casting looks a non-stayer)

    4:20 – CONNECT, FOLGA<br>(Don Pele is omitted and I hope I don’t regret that as it would appear to have a chance, but this pair both have course form and a fast-ground preference, with the Tompkins runner potentially a lot better than it showed last time and usually best when relatviely fresh)

    4:50 – ZEYDNAA, REMINISCENT, DANZATRICE, BEST PORT<br>(A pretty wide open race as I see it, so the shortest priced runners are opposed with a quartet of possibles at slightly bigger odds. Danzatrice could well improve at the trip, Zeydnaa may still be on the upgrade, Best Port is a bit long in the tooth but has run tons of good races over staying trips on fast ground, whilst Reminiscent just looks too big at current prices and has a squeak. I have combined these last race selections in 30p exacta  & 10p tricast combs! That’s confidence for you…)
