13:45: Navello

NAVELLO put up a great performance to carry the penalty when winning at Brighton under this pilot Nicola Currie. Being drawn down on the inside from stall one, should mean we get a perfect run into the race and a win would be a welcome return to the big time for Currie, who has slipped off the radar recently. Trainer George Boughey is flying and had his first Listed winner at Newmarket last weekend  at the Guineas meeting.

14:15: Dubai Fountain

The selection has progressed with each and every start throughout her career as a juvenile and took it to another level when stepping up to the mile towards the end of last season. Going up further in distance this term is going to suit DUBAI FOUNTAIN down to the ground and with all the top-class juvenile form around her, she looks to be the class entry of the field and can slide along on the front end for victory.

14:45: Showalong

SHOWALONG put up his best performance when bolting up at York towards the end of last season with some ease underfoot. There is a little bit of pace drawn down towards his inside and he should get a perfect set up into this contest to pounce in the short straight. Any rain that arrives will certainly be in his favour which is a massive positive.

15:15: Pleasant Man

After winning on his racecourse debut at Haydock, PLEASANT MAN was thrown in the deep end and upped into Group 2 company in the Royal Lodge at HQ, where he wasn’t disgraced despite looking a little green in running. He was obviously going to be a better three-year-old, but his return at Windsor was slightly disappointing. However, he clearly hit a flat spot and the step up in distance will suit him much better. The yard were under a cloud at the time, but seem to be hitting their stride at present.

15:45: Salsoul (each-way)

Makes debut for trainer David Griffiths having already placed on a few occasions and getting an elusive first victory on the board at Chelmsford. SALSOUL is not short on natural pace which will be a fine asset from her inside stall position and is right at the foot of the weights. The yard are a proven quality sprint academy outfit and she can reward her backers at each-way odds.
