13:00 Chanson D’Amour (NAP)

A few of these are making their nursery debut and the pick of that group may be Moon Bay who showed promise on the second of her three starts. She shouldn’t have a problem with this extra furlong, while Beverley winner Clodovea looks a contender again especially if the rain arrives. Sandie’s Dream may show more now upped in trip but the vote goes to CHANSON D’AMOUR (nap) who is 5lb well-in following her recent narrow Doncaster defeat. She should have no problem with the return to 7f.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

13:35 Zebelle

This looks to concern the three previous winners. Lucy Lulu is starting to look relatively exposed but there is probably more to come from Lowther entry Guest List after her Chester success and she has to be respected. However, the vote goes to ZEBELLE who won her only start for Amy Murphy and makes her debut for a stable that has enjoyed a great year with its 2yos. The form of her Ripon success is working out well with the fourth and fifth (twice) successful in the meantime.

14:10 Three Hat Day

Keepherlit is interesting after showing more promise at Ripon last time but it often pays to be drawn towards the stands side in sprints here, which could help the exposed but consistent Nodsasgoodasawink and THREE HAT DAY. The last named drops slightly in grade and now looks on the sort of mark from which she may be able to strike.

14:45 The Quiet Rebel

A tricky race to solve. THE QUIET REBEL could emerge as a contender with a handy draw and a slight drop in grade to help. Mereside Pearl (who ran yesterday) may yet build on her recent Redcar third. Back on turf, Ripon winner Ginato is not ruled out.

15:20 Lord Of The Lodge

This should be truly run despite the small field, with a couple of these happy going forward. LORD OF THE LODGE is one of those and he didn’t run very well when unable to lead last time, but he is favoured by these terms and should be hard to pass if he can overcome Azano to gain the early advantage. Prince Eiji is also favoured by the weights and is capable of smart form but he has gone 12 races without a win since his successful debut.

15:55 Raqisa

It’s hard to have strong confidence in any of these but the suggestion is to side with RAQISA. Jedd O’Keeffe’s filly has hinted that this trip could suit and Lady Ziana, who could ensure there is an even gallop, may set things up for the selection. Everett needs to find improvement but support for him would be interesting.

16:30 Dana Forever

The five have raced 64 times between them without success but this will be a red-letter day for one of them. Marvel is capable but not straightforward, and while Musahaba has the form to win, it’s debatable whether a sharp 6f like this will play to his strengths. DANA FOREVER is the most exposed in the field but she has gone close on so many occasions and may be able to dominate this race from the start.
