17:05 Charlie Fellowes (NAP)

CHARLIE FELLOWES must concede at least 7lb to each of his five rivals in this novice, but he still rates very much the one to beat on Timeform’s weight-adjusted ratings after a pair of wide-margin wins. The latest of them was achieved at Wolverhampton three weeks ago, drawing clear in the straight to land the spoils easily by 7-and-a-half lengths.

He looks a useful sprinter in the making and should mount a bold hat-trick bid if taking to this surface, with the fine form of the George Scott yard (six winners from last 26 runners) also giving cause for optimism.

16:35 Grand Pianola (Next Best)

GRAND PIANOLA has taken his form to another level since switching to this surface, finishing a close-up fifth on his penultimate outing and then improving again when second last time. He travelled strongly into contention on the most recent occasion and kept on well to be beaten just half a length by another unexposed three-year-old.

The pair pulled well clear of the third, and Grand Pianola certainly showed enough to suggest it’s only a matter of time before he opens his account, with a 4lb higher mark unlikely to prove his limit.

19:05 Let Me Be (Each-Way)

LET ME BE showed improved form when filling the runner-up spot on his handicap debut at Catterick two weeks ago, relishing the stamina test as expected from one who had previously won a pair of bumpers. Admittedly, he didn’t travel with much fluency and was off the bridle a long way out, but he put in some good late work to finish a clear second behind the easy winner Main Fact.

That rival gave the form a boost when winning again at Nottingham on Wednesday, so the fact that Let Me Be can race from the same mark here makes him of definite interest in conditions that should play to his strengths.
