17:20 – Giggle Band

Wee Loch Lass sets the standard and looks set to go well against the stands’ rail but there are some interesting opponents. Showtime Mahomes could go well for a stable having a good spring, while Dairerin, Sophie’s Star and Totes Emosh are other newcomers of interest. GIGGLE BAND was well held on her Redcar debut but there was clear promise in the run and she may be able to take a significant step forward today.

17:50 – Twilight Spinner

Blind Beggar sets the standard on his 2yo form but he was below that level on his return and he still has to prove himself over 6f. This looks a good opportunity for TWILIGHT SPINNER to confirm the undoubted promise of her recent Pontefract debut, where she was short of room for most of the race and finished with a flourish when seeing some daylight. She can take this on route to better things. A few of the others, notably Albegone and Fountain’s Flyer, need monitoring with a view to handicaps.

18:20 – Citron Major

Mark’s Choice is chasing a C&D hat-trick and needs consideration, with Hart Stopper and Magical Effect others to consider. None appeals more than CITRON MAJOR, however, with his reappearance effort suggesting he retains all his ability.

18:50 – Intrinsic Bond

Bossipop brings solid recent form into the race and can make a bold bid for his first 5f success, while Royal Context and Get Boosting also have something to recommend them. It seems unlikely that INTRINSIC BOND (nap) won’t prove a fair bit better than his current mark by the end of the season and the way he travelled through his return to action at Redcar backed up that impression. He’s unexposed at 5f and it may ultimately prove his optimum.

19:20 – Let Me Be

Stormin Norman has form figures of 113311 in Flat handicaps and he’s open to more progress back in this sphere, but slight preference is for LET ME BE, who beat a clear second when recording his breakthrough Flat win over 1m6f at Musselburgh last week and is well treated under a penalty for that strong-finishing success. Others with each-way claims are Endlessly and Contrebasse.

19:50 – Delgrey Boy

Dr T J Eckleburg may prove best of the 3yo contingent but the Easterbys look to hold the aces in this field. Casilli can progress again for the new trip but DELGREY BOY looked one to keep on the right side of when scoring decisively at Thirsk at the weekend.

20:20 – Yorkshire Lady

Torrkee is unexposed and may improve for the switch to 1m, turf and handicaps but he’s up against a pair of interesting fillies in Celestial Queen and YORKSHIRE LADY. The former bolted up on her handicap debut and looks well in under a penalty but there should be more to come from the selection whose two handicap runs have been backed up by the clock.
