13:40 Sky Angel

SKY ANGEL hasn’t done much wrong in three starts so far and put up a smart performance last time over slightly further when trying to make the running and she was just run out of victory late on at Newmarket.

They obviously feel that her two-year-old campaign is the time to strike as she reappears fairly quickly and takes a slight drop in distance also.

She likes to make the running which will see her being ridden aggressively now she’s back down in trip.

 

14:10 Prado

You can only beat what’s put in front of you and PRADO did just that on her racecourse debut at Salisbury.

She was then upped in grade dramatically to Group 3 company in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood.

Prado looked ill at ease and likely to finish last under the heavy conditions, so it was a top effort to get herself back into contention and finish a distant second. Staying looks to be her game and under slightly better conditions, she looks a decent each-way prospect.

14:40 Dark Lion

Admittedly DARK LION was disappointing last time, and prior to that he had been involved in a bumping match at Goodwood and had slightly lost focus and confidence.

As a result he will be fitted with blinkers for the first time and has been given the services of a certain Frankie Dettori in the saddle. The form of his Coventry run at Royal Ascot is very good and I’m hoping with the headgear on, he can bounce back to form.

15:15 Believe in Love

BELIEVE IN LOVE rattles up here on the back of a four-timer and couldn’t have been any more impressive when destroying the field last time by a long looking 10 lengths at Newmarket.

This is a jump up in grade, but that was obvious as she now perched on an official rating of 107.

Alpinista is bringing in strong Yorkshire Oaks form behind Love, but she was ridden to pick up the pieces late on, rather than get into a battle. We will soon find out if she is worthy of that perch of 113 after that one run. I’m not convinced.

15:45 Eastern World

As a half-brother to the Dubai World Cup winner Thunder Snow, EASTERN WORLD was always going to have the spotlight on him. He ran an absolute cracker in a red-hot handicap at York 20 days ago over the mile and he was pretty aggressive in the early stages, so returning to 7 furlongs looks ideal.

He still held every opportunity approaching the furlong marker, which suggests that on the same mark on Thursday, he can be right in the mix as the line looms.
