11.15 Vaal - QUEEN OF WAR - Much improved on 2nd start and can improve again at 16's. 12.25 Vaal - CANTATA MUNDI - Merit rating of 55, so would normally struggle in Maiden company. Nothing rated in the high 60's upwards though, so nothing to fear from those. 3 lighter raced ones all look interesting, but 2 of them are short, so happy taking a risk on CM at 50's. 1.00 Vaal - GENTLEMAN ONLY - Showed signs of a revival recently and the gradual decrease of his merit rating would certainly bring him into the picture in a moderate looking contest. Six c & d efforts have resulted in a win and 2 places, so definite EW shout at 18's. 1.35 Vaal - CRANBERRY CRUSH and GOLDUST WOMEN - CC is a capable sort and is the trainer's only runner of the day at 10's. GW runs the odd good race and is certainly nicely weighted. Good 9lb claimer takes the ride and not the biggest surprise if she gets involved at 33's. 2.10 Vaal - RIVER RUN - Poor effort last time, but has some fair form at this level and top young jockey takes over the ride. EW shout at 22's 2.20 Clonmel - PEDRO - Not a lot in Points, but ought to be capable of something better and small EW at 66's. 3.25 Clonmel - WINSOR VIXEN - Winless, but capable handicapper and must have a chance at 12's, in a race that looks quite weak. 5.00 Clonmel - HANOVER SPIRIT - Top 2 versus the rest in this six runner contest and for me HS is the most likely of the " rags " at 33's. 8.10 Wolverhampton - ZADORRA - Only hinted at ability to date, but be surprised if there is not more to come at 16's.
