13:00 Love De Vega

Although an absence of 45 days is a little discouraging, LOVE DE VEGA has performed to a good level in both his runs and he should take a lot of beating. King’s Guard is a notable newcomer and Charlie Appleby’s top sprinter Blue Point made a winning debut in this race five years ago. Sterling Knight could be the sharp improver having shaped very nicely at Newbury.

13:35 Matamua

Not a strong maiden and confidence behind Satono Chevalier would be very interesting. As things stand, MATAMUA just about deserves the vote on form, and the soft ground perhaps found her out when a beaten favourite at Windsor last time. Zuhair is one to keep an eye on with the future in mind.

14:10 Didtheyleaveuoutto

Dereham smacked of an improver when winning so well at Yarmouth, but DIDTHEYLEAVEUOUTTO (NAP) will be far better served by this trip than the 1m 2f over which he ran at Leicester last month. This good hurdler should be getting competitive off this low a mark and Jamie Spencer is a very positive booking.

14:45 Muscika

All seven could quite easily make their presence felt, but MUSCIKA ran a big race at Epsom last week and goes up 3lbs in future. Provided conditions stay on the quick side it could be Dancinginthewoods who is next best, followed by Typhoon Ten.

15:20 Soyounique

Back into a Class 6, preference is for SOYOUNIQUE. The race never panned out that favourably at Wolverhampton last time and, although 0-3 on grass, he’s probably much improved since he last tried it. Refuge has a bit to prove at 6 furlongs, but the visor is an interesting addition for this in-form four-year-old.

15:55 Hail Sezer

A lack of recent match practice may count against Shaykhoon and Nurse Florence, who otherwise have solid form claims. The suggestion is HAIL SEZER, who on reflection ran a cracker to be second when against the pace bias at Newcastle. Johnny Estella is feared most.

16:30 Jewel In My Crown

She didn’t beat much at Brighton, but JEWEL IN MY CROWN is a well-bred filly heading the right way and this trip should suit her. Gleneaglet ran a nice race at Bath behind rivals with potential and she’s the second choice, ahead of Tiki Fire.

17:00 Junoesque

The most solid option in this trappy race is JUNOESQUE, who is 2lbs lower than for her all-weather win at Lingfield in November and was a creditable third back on turf at Brighton 13 days ago.

Temur Khan is feared most on his drop back in trip/grade, though Turn Of Phrase was a fair fourth in similar conditions last time and has each-way claims if she can build on that. Others who could be dangerous are Corofin and Manfadh.
