Lay Reflation @ 3.45 in the 14:00 Chepstow

Back Bonjour Steve @ 4.03/1 in the 16:00 Chepstow

Back Myboyalfie @ 5.79/2 in the 16:30 Chepstow

Today's first selection is our lay in the 14:00 at Chepstow where Reflation has been a market drifter from a low of 2.6813/8 out to a current price of 3.45.

This Richard Hannon 3yo is completely friendless in the market this morning after running three days ago at Bath. It is easy to see why backers are avoiding this Gelding as 12 runs to date are yet to yield a success. This is possibly his easiest task to date but with the selection never encountering heavy ground before this is surely a lay that cannot be refused at 3.45.


We begin today's back bets with Bonjour Steve in the 16:00 at Chepstow and he has been backed from a high of 5.45 in to a current price of 4.03/1.

This Chepstow specialist could not have conditions more in his favour today with the weather really playing into his hands in the last couple of days. This course and distance winner has a sensational record at Chepstow, reading 22212412 with both wins coming in soft ground. One downside is the fact he is at a career high mark of 70 but he is only 2lbs higher than a recent course and distance second off 68 on good ground. A back of 4.03/1 is suggested for this mud lover.


Now moving onto the 16:30 at Chepstow where another mud lark has been well supported. Myboyalfie has been backed from a high of 8.88/1 in to a current price of 5.79/2.

Similar to the previous selection this 8yo has a very good record at Chepstow, winning two out of three runs at the track. With both of them wins coming on soft and heavy again today's conditions have to be right up his street. However this selection is well handicapped on previous form, arriving here off a mark of 79 despite winning off 84 in two years ago. Another thing to note is the pilot on board, Freddie Tylicki has six winning rides in the last 10 days so an obvious positive. A back of 5.79/2 is suggested on another soft ground lover.
