RACE PREVIEWS & TIPS (THURSDAY)

14:35 Warwick Ballywilliam is worth another chance on ground that he will love. He was pulled up on what was quite tacky ground at Newbury last time and that was his first outing in almost eight months. Tom Scudamore takes the reins this afternoon as the seven year old bids for a third win from just eight career starts. The slight step up in trip ought to be more of an inconvenience to others rather than him and with the yard back amongst the winners of late, he has to rank high on any shortlist. Court Frontier won for the first time in just over a year last time on bottomless ground at Chepstow. He pulled some eight lengths clear of Allchilledout suggesting there was more to come. Again the further he went the better he looked so despite the extra yardage today he looks the biggest threat. Godsmejudge sneaks in at the foot of the handicap and has won on heavy ground before. Partnered by Aiden Coleman this afternoon the duo are also likely to make the frame. BALLYWILLIAM  (E/W if 9/2+) – (NAP)

15:10 Warwick Grand Vision ran well for such a long way when well backed at Kelso last time. That was his seasonal reappearance and was his first run in almost ten months. The ground should not pose too many problems for this eleven year old veteran and today’s jockey has plenty of experience on board. Colin Tizzard has his yard in excellent form and the generally consistent sort has made the frame in fourteen of his nineteen career starts. Dolatulo just got the better of the selection last time and probably should have won the race. Instead he had to settle for second place due to a completely amateur ride from his jockey. With the same pilot on board this afternoon backers will be anxious but he still rates as the likeliest danger. Pearlysteps is as versatile as they come and with eight career wins under his belt he is certainly no slouch. With stamina proven over further he too commands plenty of respect. GRAND VISION (WIN)
