14:10 Fard

The change of scenery might not do FARD any harm and he’s nicely handicapped despite going up 3lb for his Kempton win. Eldelbar is second best, ahead of My Law and Doctor Nuno.

 

14:40 Copake

With a few of the newcomers interesting, it makes sense to check the market before committing. As things stand, preference is for COPAKE, as it was a decent novice event in which he showed more at Newcastle last time. Lexington Fury was well backed at Lingfield and won’t be long in winning.

15:10 Expect To Succeed

The suggestion is EXPECT TO SUCCEED, who ran a most encouraging race at Newcastle and here’s hoping that the fourth, Copake, can boost the form in division one. On the other hand, a big run from Lexington Fury in that race would enhance the chance of Visala, who did catch the eye with how she finished at Lingfield.

15:40 Batraan

Although beaten at odds-on last time, BATRAAN can be given another chance back over 5 furlongs and with the headgear left at home. Wings Of A Dove is now frustrating, though she can naturally be forgiven her latest defeat in a Group 3.

16:10 Tamigi

Eyes is closely matched with the penalised Livia The Empress from Chelmsford late last week, but the winner had a good bit in hand and will rightly be popular to confirm placings. Heatherdown Matron is open to improvement now that she is handed a stiffer test back from three months off, as is TAMIGI, who is straight into low-grade nursery company after two starts in sprint novices. There’s always the danger that she will pull hard again, but otherwise this looks within range.

16:40 Sweet Promise

There is a decent spread of pace in this race in which any number arrive out of form and/or weighted to their best. A record of four wins from nine course and distance starts entitles Kaser to respect after a stint on turf.

Fox Power too will be happier back on Tapeta off a sliding mark (career figures of 13124). Progressive three-year-old Habit Rouge is unexposed, but has more on his plate now handicapping against older rivals. The vote goes to SWEET PROMISE, who’s back on a workable mark in this third handicap after her spell in Group company.

17:10 Top Fox

On racecourse evidence this is between TOP FOX and Secret Victory who were both runner-up last time out, but in the latter’s case that was 390 days ago. Top Fox, contrastingly, shaped very nicely over C&D one month back. If anything is to trouble them, it is most likely to be the newcomers Big Team and Star Dreamer.

17:40 Pearl Beach

Although William Knight’s PEARL BEACH (NAP) is 8lb higher than for her only win, Pierre-Louis Jamin’s claim deals with 5lb of that. Forget her last run.
