13:15 Downbythestrand

Although Costly Diamond has to be respected in her bid for a hat-trick, this much higher mark on forecast faster ground means she may have to play second fiddle to DOWNBYTHESTRAND, who shaped well on his first start for Alex Hales following a long absence. He’s 4lb lower today and may be suited by the drop in distance. Eclat Des Mottes showed more last time and could pose a threat along with The City Cobbler.

13:45 His Dream

Given the authority of his C&D victory last week, First Class Return could be hard to beat, However, the prospect of a return to a sound surface is very much in favour of HIS DREAM, who is feasibly weighted and could resume his progress over fences. Commit Or Quit looks the best of the rest.

14:20 Hob House

Most probably depends on the Henderson newcomer HOB HOUSE, for whom a hood sounds a warning note but everything else on paper is a positive. Nothin To Ask has done the most among those with some experience, just ahead of Greatest Star. Another newcomer who catches the eye on paper is Mark Rimell’s Hallwood.

14:50 Rockstar Ronnie

Unless the well-bred Storming Carlos is an above-average newcomer, this should rest between Get Back Get Back, No Risk Des Flos and ROCKSTAR RONNIE. The Skeltons remain in fine form and their representative could be the one to beat despite facing a much sterner task than when winning easily over C&D last time. No Risk Des Flos may give him most to do.

15:20 Soyouthinksoagain (NAP)

The in-form Gold Runner won over C&D last month but may not be able to cope with SOYOUTHINKSOAGAIN (nap), who was a close second to a progressive horse at Newbury last week and is able to run off the same mark today. Several of the others have possibilities, including Reikers Island on his debut for Dr Richard Newland.

15:50 Dragon Bones

Although Tequila Blaze will be no pushover in receipt of weight, DRAGON BONES should be capable of building on her excellent hurdle debut success in a Listed race at Doncaster. Bonbon Balko and Padstow Harbour are interesting hurdling recruits.

16:20 Shady Character

Plenty of runners on show and at least half of them make some appeal but the vote goes to SHADY CHARACTER, who returned to form last time and promises to do even better if the ground rides good. The dangers are headed by Project Mars, Volunteer, Newera, Outlaw Jack and Classic Tune, with the last-named possibly posing the biggest threat.
