13:10 Harswell Prince

In a race likely to be run at a strong pace the tentative choice is the well-drawn HARSWELL PRINCE who has held his form well after his Hamilton win in August and is ahead of the handicapper here. Bedford Flyer could prove the main threat.

13:45 King’s Charisma

This looks an interesting contest with the 3yos likely to dominate and, though it could become tactical, the progressive KING’S CHARISMA is taken to beat Fiveandtwenty even though the latter should get the run of the race.

14:20 Sarsaparilla

This is not as straightforward as it might look for SARSAPARILLA, who has been unable to take several chances already. However, she won’t be found wanting for experience in this line-up and is taken to finally get off the mark. Brazen Belle faces a tough task again but could still be involved for the minor honours, with newcomers Lexington Bullet and Forza Del Destino making some appeal on pedigree.

14:55 Paws For Thought

If Basilicata can shrug off her lack-lustre effort four weeks ago she should return to being a big player, but the penny really dropped with PAWS FOR THOUGHT last time and he is taken to defy a penalty and follow up. Keep an eye on the market with regard to nursery newcomer Under Fox, who took a step in the right direction last time.

15:30 Leafhopper

Although LEAFHOPPER hasn’t been seen for more than a year she should take all the beating on her winning Newmarket form last August. The O’Meara pair of Gumra and Egrecio are the ones likely to take advantage if she underperforms.

16:05 Tadaawol

Course specialists The Big House, Our Dave and B Fifty Two can probably all be competitive again, but TADAAWOL, another winner at this track, is taken to end a lengthy losing run.

16:40 Al Mansoura

She could be better drawn but AL MANSOURA was only collared late on by her market rival at Lingfield and that probably wasn’t a bad race for the grade. Back on turf after not taking to the Tapeta Midnite Bride is feared most.

17:15 Sudona (NAP)

The return to this trip suited SUDONA (nap) at York recently and she can go one better off the same mark. Gold Souk looks the main danger on his first run since being gelded.
