13:00 El Caballo

Karl Burke’s EL CABALLO made a promising start when runner-up at Doncaster and looks to have been found a good opportunity to go one better. The newcomers Power Generation and Bond Power are worth a second look.

13:35 Ventura Flame

A case can be made for plenty of these, but the most persuasive one is for VENTURA FLAME – who can boast a course and distance win and arrives at the top of her game. The consistent Ballyare heads the list of dangers with both Marvel and Tanasoq worthy of consideration too.

14:10 Latin Five

A tight-knit handicap in which LATIN FIVE is taken to confirm his Wetherby promise and capitalise on a lenient mark to gain a first win for Paul Midgley. Hostelry rates the chief threat if building on her encouraging Doncaster third, while Praxeology and End Zone can also feature.

14:45 Yoshimi

This looks fiercely competitive. Hat-trick seeking Hundred Isles is the one with notable potential, but preference is for YOSHIMI – who staged a revival on his reappearance and can build on that with today’s greater stamina test. The chief danger may be Soaring Star, who is very interesting on his first attempt at 1m.

15:20 Cleveleys

A real mixed bag for this maiden. Consistent CLEVELEYS stepped up on his two-year-old form when second on his reappearance at Redcar and gets the verdict over Victorious Night, who has the form to play a part if translating his all-weather form on to turf now dropped in trip.

15:55 Lexington Knight

A few of these offer some potential, not least LEXINGTON KNIGHT, who rates the form pick on his third at Doncaster. Ayr runner-up Kraken Filly is next best with Wizard D’Amour and Tampa also worthy of consideration.

16:30 Lexington Liberty

Plenty in with a shout. Imperial Butterfly and Enderman would have good claims if fully tuned up for their seasonal returns and Hope Probe seems sure to go well on the back of his excellent Musselburgh second. But, LEXINGTON LIBERTY appeals as the sort to take a step forward now she goes handicapping and Richard Hannon’s filly gets the nod.

17:00 Seventeen O Four

Calculations are dominated by SEVENTEEN O FOUR (NAP) who proved so well suited by 1m 4f on soft ground when he scored impressively at Catterick one week ago. He is well treated under the penalty and has potential on turf in general (Catterick was his turf debut) and probably testing ground in particular.

It is not easy to decide on a chief dange, but Robeam might be it and Zihaam would go very well if his stamina could stretch again after recent improved form over 8.4 furlongs.

Carlisle tips summary:

13:00 El Caballo
13:35 Ventura Flame
14:10 Latin Five
14:45 Yoshimi
15:20 Cleveleys
15:55 Lexington Knight
16:30 Lexington Liberty
17:00 Seventeen O Four
