3.50pm – Captain Ryan

Several have possibilities but the vote goes to multiple C&D winner CAPTAIN RYAN, who won this race in 2019 and has held his form fairly well since his last success here in August. The main dangers are Dubai Paradise and Kyllukey who finished right in the thick of things when second and third in a 5f handicap here 17 days ago. Another to consider is 3yo Boot Scootin Baby who bounced back with a front-running second at Newcastle last week and is well drawn to attack here.

4.20pm – Blackcurrent

First Excel has finished placed in his last three runs and should give it another good shot back in trip, while Mansfield was a creditable third over C&D last time and could be a major force if this sets up for his closing style. However, the one that appeals most is BLACKCURRENT, who battled well to record his breakthrough win over 5f at Newcastle last month and that form has worked out well.

4.50pm – Inevitable Outcome (NAP)

Kraka got back in the groove when making all over 7f here last month and he’s respected on this drop back in trip but preference is for INEVITABLE OUTCOME (nap), who resumed her progress when forging clear over C&D last week and still looks feasibly treated under a penalty. Others to consider are Bombastic, who went close on Polytrack two weeks ago, and Album, who had an excuse on Fibresand last time.

5.20pm – Lleyton

This can go to the resurgent LLEYTON, who made it 2-3 at this track when trouncing his rivals over C&D last Sunday and looks very well treated under a penalty for that emphatic win. The pick of the opposition is the lightly raced 4yo My Girl Maggie, who got off the mark in good style over 1m4f here on Boxing Day and is open to more progress at this new trip.

5.50pm – Richard R H B

Several have claims in this competitive race but it might be worth sticking with RICHARD R H B, who has really kicked on again with his brave wins over C&D in his last two runs and may well be able to complete the hat-trick. Both Precision Storm and Grey D’Ars have had close calls behind the selection recently and they are feared most, though Athmad should be in the mix again and recent Newcastle winner Termonator is respected back up in grade.

6.20pm – Shimmering Dawn

It is possible to argue that SHIMMERING DAWN would be better off at 6f than 7f but she is the clear pick at these weights and saw this trip out well enough to win at Lingfield last time. She may have enough in hand to hold off Dancing Feet and the improving Amniarix who are preferred in that order.

 

6.50pm – Big Kitty

Out Of The East caught the eye with her staying-on third here on her recent debut and she’s respected on this step up in trip. Angel Mill also looks a likely improver on her second start, while there are plenty of interesting newcomers who need watching in the market including Baileys Warrior and Runway Queen. However, the vote goes to Micheal Bell’s BIG KITTY, who made a promising start with her second behind an impressive winner here 20 days ago and sets the standard on that form.

7.20pm – Critical Thinking

This looks tight, as illustrated by the C&D race on December 15th won by CRITICAL THINKING with Nezar and Shine On Brendan snapping at his heels in third and fourth. Inaam (who, like Nezar, is a past winner of this race) is also firmly in the picture after his Lingfield win but Critical Thinking is probably the most reliable proposition.

7.50pm – Kylla Looks

Trevie Fountain is much respected in his hat-trick bid but this may go to KYLLA LOOKS, who has looked a different horse since the cheekpieces went on.
