Three winners for Matt Brocklebank on Saturday and David Ord has a bet for every Sunday meeting.


Sunday Nap of the Day


CALL BY BLUFF – 3.55 Pontefract (NAP)

Already a winner over this marathon trip here, CALL MY BLUFF can defy top weight in the Sky Bet Pontefract Cup Handicap.

He produced a career-best effort to win at Nottingham last time and needs another from a six pounds higher mark but Silvestre De Sousa is again in the saddle and he’s won on all three previous rides aboard him.

He’s certain to stay the trip and arrives here at the very top of his game.

DANSE IDOL – 2.00 Worcester

She isn’t the easiest to win with but DANSE IDOL has been in good form of late and is fancied to go close in the Get Hugh Taylor's Tips On attheraces.com Handicap Chase.

She typically travelled strongly when second at Cheltenham two starts ago from this mark and again when third at Ludlow last time. She was just over-keen there and didn’t see the race out but Harry Skelton takes over again and in the hope they go a gallop up front with two confirmed front-runners, he’ll be looking to pick up the pieces late.


CYRUS KEEP – 3.15 Hexham

Consistency hasn’t always been his forte but such was the impression CYRUS KEEP made in winning over course-and-distance last time he’s fancied to follow up in the Iveson Sisters Memorial Handicap Hurdle.

He’s seven pounds higher but the way he went through the last race suggested he’d cope with such a rise and Brian Hughes again takes the ride. If, and it is an if, he’s in the same heart again he looks the bet here with Bucks Dream feared the most although he may need a sterner test of stamina.


Monday Nap of the Day


CREMA INGLESA - 3.30 Chepstow (NAP)

CREMA INGLESA shaped very much like a well-treated animal when running on for fourth on handicap debut at Kempton in October.

That came on the back of three qualifying runs in pretty smart races at Newbury, Ascot and Lingfield and the three-year-old daughter of Lope De Vega is bred to improve with age as she's a half-sister to Point In Time, who peaked at the back end of her four-year-old campaign.

Chepstow's Vickers.Bet Supports The Rainbow Applause Charity Confined Handicap looks a nice starting point for Crema Inglesa's season and jockey Saffie Osborne is clearly great value still able to claim 5lb for another 20-odd winners before it's reduced to 3lb.


NO ANXIETY - 1.30 Southwell

NO ANXIETY was a shade unlucky when second to the enterprisingly-ridden Hawthorn Cottage at Warwick last month.

If Gavin Sheehan had his time again he might have got after Jamie Snowden's horse a shade sooner but, in fairness, the chestnut found plenty for pressure after turning for home and the 4lb subsequent rise looks merited.

After six career starts there will almost certainly be more to come and I'm backing him to handle a drop back in trip, providing he's close enough to the early pace on this occasion.

TERRAFIRMA LADY - 2.50 Newton Abbot

Floral Bouquet is going to be popular here and rightly so after coming back to form in no uncertain terms lately.

However, her back-to-back wins have won in fairly moderate chases and she's now returning to timber off a slightly higher mark and against some likely-looking rivals.

Alan King's TERRAFIRMA LADY hasn't achieved the same level of form yet but did show some spark when second back from a break at Worcester late last month and a 1lb drop in the weights looks quite fair given the third from that event has won since.


ROCKETT MAN - 7.20 Wolverhampton

Laura Pearson is fast-approaching the day she loses her 5lb claim - she's nine winners short of the 50 mark at the time of writing - and is backed to get another on the board via ROCKETT MAN.

He did well in four all-weather starts around the turn of the year and, after struggling on bad ground at Goodwood last month, showed more promise when third at Windsor.

He's been eased another pound in the ratings and Pearson was on board for his Chelmsford maiden win in January.

IN THE BREEZE - 7.30 Windsor

Roger Charlton might just be coming into a bit of form (three winners since last Friday) and IN THE BREEZE looks worth a bet for the trainer at Windsor.

He played up a bit at the start here on his seasonal return in a warm novice event won by Siskany - Royal Ascot winner Surefire finished second - and fluffed his lines when the stalls opened.

It was good to see him back on track with a staying-on third at Leicester last time and the move up to a mile and a half should really suit the son of Harzand.
