1:40 Taunton — Oriak Des Ormeaux is favorite but is no value imo. The form of Russian Consort’s races has not worked out so I fancy the chances of Nawaadi who ran well on his first appearance over hurdles. Represents the Hobbs/Johnson yard. Backed e/way at 5/1.
4:20 Folkestone — Melba Toast put up an improved performance last time out and a repeat of that form will see him go close and should like the step up in trip. Backed e/way at 4/1.
4:30 Southwell — Dudley Docker has improved since being fitted with a visor. From the in form D Carroll yard. Backed to win at 4/1
