Back Examiner in the 15:05 at Chester @ 4.47/2 
Lay Tiggy Wiggy in the 15:10 at Newmarket @ 2.47/5 
Back Seeking Magic in the 15:55 at Ripon @ 5.24/1 

We start at Chester and in the 15:05 where the William Haggas-trained Examiner has been backed from an opening price of 7.413/2 in to 4.47/2. He ran well in a similar race to today at Goodwood last month where he finished third after being hampered 2f out, and the form of that race looks good as the winner won at Doncaster last week. We think he is worth following again over this trip of 1m2f and with a bit more luck in-running we feel he is capable of winning today.  

Today's negative comes from Newmarket and in the Cheveley Park Stakes at 15:10 where Tiggy Wiggy has drifted from 2.01/1 out to 2.47/5. It isn't surprising to see her installed as a short price favourite following her efforts this season, especially her victory at York where she broke the course record; the form of that race has also received a significant boost with the runner-up Cursory Glance winning a Group 1 at the Curragh earlier this month. We are happy to take her on today as we feel she has had a long season after making her debut in March and we also feel she is better suited by slower ground. 

Our final pick is in the 15:55 from Ripon where Seeking Magic has been well supported from 9.08/1 in to 5.24/1. His form figures do not inspire much confidence and he finished eighth at Doncaster on his last start, but did best of those racing on the far side, he also finished third in this race last season, so we are hoping the market support is correct and can land a gamble for our final selection.
