SOLO SAXOPHONE TO HIT RIGHT NOTE AT ROSCOMMON

SOLO SAXOPHONE (nap) rates well clear on the clock for this 14-runner middle-distance maiden, courtesy of his second to Brazos at Listowel 11 days ago.

Proving himself to be fully effective on heavy ground on that occasion, and with scope for further improvement in this sphere, the colt has too many pointers in his favour to be ignored this afternoon.

Pencilled in at 11-4 on the early tissue, those odds can be considered fair in a race that doesn't look all that strong.

Hamilton 3-15 Stakes (Class 2) 6f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Don't Touch  118  76  99  (80)  118  --  --

 Al Qahwa  107  107  39  83  99  (75)  95

LTO Speed: Al Qahwa 107 Taexali 101 Mobsta 87

DON'T TOUCH disappointed in a Listed contest at York a fortnight ago, but is worth another chance today in a race that looks even more within his grasp. A proven winner over an undulating six furlongs on soft ground, and clear top on the clock with a figure of 118, it's not like the selection hasn't got ticks in most of the important boxes.

Hamilton 3-50 Handicap (Class 4) 12f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Thorntoun Care  95  95  --  91  74  94  --
 Chancery  92  (61)  70  83  64  92  79

 Hurricane Hollow  85  85  78  --  --  --  (66)

LTO Speed: Thorntoun Care 95 Hurricane Hollow 85 Deinonychus 76

THORNTOUN CARE (nb) has been in really good form of late, winning two of his last six races, and posting some solid speed ratings along the way. Fully effective on soft ground, and a willing runner under his 7lb claiming jockey, all looks set the this 6yo son of Rail Link to put in another big effort this afternoon.

Hamilton 4-55 Handicap (Class 5) 5f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Economic Crisis  84  57  59  73  62  65  71
 Bronze Beau  84  61  44  49  73  37  84
 Lydiate Lady  80  80  (63)  72  62  57  --
 Camanche Grey  80  74  (64)  66  80  61  --

LTO Speed: Lydiate Lady 80 Camanche Grey 74 Dodgy Bob 71

LYDIATE LADY posted a premier LTO speed rating of 80 when landing a five furlong handicap on rain softened ground at Catterick earlier in the month, and was a winner over the same trip on the all-weather at Southwell on her previous outing. Up a notch in class today, it might not be enough to stop this 5yo daughter of Piccolo from making it a hat-trick of straight victories.

Kempton 5-05 Handicap (Class 4) 8f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Family Fortunes  97  (78)  (74)  97  92  --  --
 Pendo  96  81  (97)  96  (67)  (51)  90
 Golden Wedding  95  95  (86)  87  (75)  (78)  63
 Mudallel  95  93  95  84  (80)  (69)  (30)

LTO Speed: Golden Wedding 95 Ventura Blues 94 Mudallel 93

Mudallel, Ventura Blues and Golden Wedding are sure to come in for plenty of support following their solid clockings at this track last time out. However, I'm going to give an each-way shout to the likely bigger-priced FAMILY FORTUNES in this competitive 14-runner handicap, as he rates top on the clock with a figure of 97, has won at this venue in the past, and is bred to stay every yard of tonight's trip of one mile. Disappointing on turf of late, it will come as no surprise if he manages to bounce back here.

Leicester 5-45 Handicap (Class 6) 7f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Intimately  73  73  40  61  37  61  58
 Moi Aussie  72  48  38  72  64  63  67
 East Coast Lady  69  55  67  56  43  (81)  69
 Coverham  68  (54)  65  54  68  (66)  (51)

LTO Speed: Intimately 73 Rafaaf 62 The Groove 57

INTIMATELY's record at this track is a bit hit and miss, but does rate top on the clock today with a figure of 73 that was earned in victory at Brighton last time out. A come from behind performer, the predicted even pace is probably not ideal, but he acts on rain softened ground and has a decent draw to boot.
