The first day of a new month and in all honesty the racing looks to be pretty average at best. Hoping to get August off to a good start but will be keeping stakes low.
NAP: Moonlightnaviagtor 5/2 (PP) – Carlisle 19:45 – 2pts win WON (SP 5/4) +5pts
Backed this one the last twice when finished second on both occasions. Although a ½ length second last time out, was over four lengths clear of third and the fifth of that race has won since. Dropped 1lbs and partnered with the talented Josephine Gordon doing the steering the 4 year old is taken to go one better here.
Won his last two, both over six furlongs. Beat a subsequent winner last time out and looked to have won with a little in hand so a 2lbs rise shouldn’t cause too many problems.Yard and jockey in good recent form.
IWAC: Hit The Lights 9/1 (BV) – Carlisle 18:45 – 1pt e/w 2nd (SP 13/2) +1.25pts
Only a tentative selection however this is the trainers only runner on the card and he has a 24% winning strike rate here in the last five years. The 6 year old has won 4, placed 4 from 22 over 5 furlongs, is down to his last winning mark and is eased in class (last win was a class 5, last race was a class 4, races in a class 6 today).
