13:05 Run To Freedom

The Henry Candy-trained RUN TO FREEDOM (NAP) is one to follow this season and, judged on his Kempton success, he should be well up to defying an opening mark of 88. He’s the type to do very well in handicaps in the immediate future and could even develop into a Listed/Group performer later on, which is backed up by his pedigree. Zoffarelli, Silent Film and Bonnyrigg look the biggest dangers, in that order.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

13:35 May Remain

Most of his rivals have been in better form but there could well be a revival from MAY REMAIN, as he’stried in new headgear and back at the scene of his last success. Second choice is Phoenix Star, ahead of Shecandoo and Seraphinite. This trip is an unknown for Kendergarten Kop, but he’s respected on the back of three wins. A few others also have possibilities in an open sprint handicap.

14:15 Atalis Bay

The vote goes to ATALIS BAY, who posted a cracking effort at York where he chased home the impressive Winter Power and beat the rest handsomely. Second choice is Warrior Brave, who wasn’t far behind the selection at Nottingham in April and is open to further improvement. Irish challengers Steel Bull and Queens Carriage are also in the mix, along with First Edition.

14:50 Latest Generation

The well-bred LATEST GENERATION makes plenty of appeal on his handicap debut with this drop back to 1m a plus. He has strong form and looks capable of defying a mark of 93. King’s Knight is feared most, ahead of Buxted Too and Dogged.

15:25 Escobedo

Last-time-out winners Ensured, King Of Clubs and Arqoob are all open to further progress and worthy of major respect in that order of preference. An interesting alternative is bottom-weight ESCOBEDO, who might have won at Windsor but for his rider dropping the whip with still over a furlong left to race. He too looks capable of further improvement.

16:00 Khaiz

There should be major improvement to come from KHAIZ, who has an excellent pedigree, and Candleford, who contested a strong race on his debut. They are more appealing than Moraweth, who isn’t a certain stayer, and Betty Crean L A, who now goes against males for the first time. Well-bred newcomers Poet Of Life and Hang Up need to be monitored for market confidence.

16:35 Sulochana

Improving and firmly in charge over 1m 6f on both her starts this season, SULOCHANA can continue the good work. Tigerten, one of several reliable sorts in this race, may be the one to follow her home. Leoncavallo should go well in his attempt to avenge his very narrow defeat in this race last year, while Kepala is preferred to Spring Glow among those stepping up in trip.
