16:30 Broctune Red

A small field and a low-grade event but it looks competitive with several of the octet having something to recommend them. Top of the list is BROCTUNE RED, who seems well suited to these conditions and ran better than the bare figures of his latest C&D second would suggest. Mo Henry will be a danger if his stamina holds out, while Like Sugar could still have more to come for a trainer who has made a very bright start to his career.

17:00 Jack Of Trades (NAP)

Deep Impression didn’t look to be helping her jockey in the straight at Southwell last time but she has managed two wins and she’s taking on four maidens this time. She’s considered, but JACK OF TRADES (nap) has improved with each of his three starts and should have more to come now handicapping.

17:30 Malhoob

Abrag, Royal Heart and Chillsea all remain capable of better but may find richer pickings in handicaps. Captain Cooper sets a clear standard on his debut second but he was a shade disappointing here last time so it might be worth siding with newcomer MALHOOB, who looks the part on paper for his leading stable.

18:00 Little Red Socks

Nordic Fire, Calonne and Chosen World all enter the reckoning but the pair to focus on could be Fashion Free and LITTLE RED SOCKS. Preference is for Karl Burke’s filly, who won well upped to this trip at Wolverhampton ten days ago, is well in under her penalty and who can prove she’s not reliant on running at that venue.

18:30 Elusive Treat

It Just Takes Time had plenty in hand when winning over 5f on his nursery debut and this return to 6f will surely be beneficial. He’s 9lb higher against stronger opposition though and that may just find him out. Silent Queen, Caribbean Sunset and Global Vision all boast winning form this winter but ELUSIVE TREAT is marginally preferred as he bids to follow up a recent Kempton success.

19:00 Pearl Of Qatar

Glenamoy Lad, back under his optimum conditions and off a much-reduced mark, is a fascinating contender and he needs a close look in the betting. The absence of the tongue-tie worn for all his wins is just enough of a negative to look elsewhere. Tathmeen should be involved but PEARL OF QATAR did well in the face of adversity over 5f here last week and she could be the answer.

19:30 El Hombre

The quirky Mondammej is an intriguing candidate on his handicap debut as he’s clearly blessed with plenty of raw ability. If his exuberance can be channeled into racing then this sort of mark should be well within range but he does come with risks attached. Outrage should be bang there once more but EL HOMBRE has been knocking at the door for his new trainer and the return to these conditions, where he’s hit the frame in the last two Gosforth Park Cups, can see him resume winning ways.
