17:15 Third Kingdom

Majd Al Arab could take some pegging back around here, but THIRD KINGDOM is given another chance to shine.

His latest third at Sandown, behind two rivals who have won since (the winner in Group 3 company), was a rock-solid effort and he can make it third time lucky.

17:50 Country’n’western

A very winnable selling handicap, with the pair to concentrate most closely on seemingly being the well-handicapped Bayston Hill and the consistent COUNTRY’N’WESTERN.

Robert Eddery’s charge should finish off his race strongly and, due an imminent 2lb weights rise, looks a force to be reckoned with at this lowly 0-60 level.

18:20 Lady Sansa

Media Storm and Pitcher’s Point are unexposed three-year-olds who could well have a bigger effort in them but so is LADY SANSA (NAP) and Ralph Beckett’s filly is preferred.

Although only third on her handicap debut, that form looks strong and she’s already proven her effectiveness under these conditions.

18:50 Alnaseem

Royal Dynasty had a few of these rivals behind her when she won at Lingfield last time, but she is far from certain to confirm the placings at this new trip.

Mr Scaramanga is feared, but ALNASEEM still has potential for this yard and she can come out on top.

Last year’s winner Lawmaking and Swiss Cheer are others to consider.

19:20 Bint Australia

El Conquistador remains capable of better back with Shaun Keightley, but the pair to make most appeal are Khaalis and BINT AUSTRALIA.

The former, a regally bred newcomer, needs a close look in the betting but the selection has shown more than enough on her last two starts to think a similar race could fall her way.

19:50 Greycoat

Shamaroon and Nature Lover both command plenty of respect, while Taqareer is a well-bred newcomer from a top yard and he needs a close look in the market.

GREYCOAT made a pleasing debut here in October though and he could be the answer returning to action with his stable banging in the winners.

20:20 Never Dark

It is highly likely that Global Prospector is better than his opening mark of 82, but he’s been absent for 503 days and the betting should guide as to expectation levels on his return.

Summit Fever is an unexposed three-year-old, but he’s landed a wide draw and this may be best left to NEVER DARK.

He has faced some stiff tasks since an impressive win at Kempton in June, but this is a drop in class and it’s his first 5 furlongs run on the all-weather since. Peggie Sue is another to consider closely.

20:50 Grand Canal

Jumping Cats could well revive back at this track and with cheekpieces returned, while Bird For Life and Justified both come here on the back of very narrow reverses.

There ought to be more to come from GRAND CANAL over this trip though and the addition of a visor could help focus his attentions. He is worth another chance. Bird For Life is next best.
