13:50 Bowland Park

BOWLAND PARK showed a good attitude when scoring at Epsom on the back of 4 months off/a gelding operation and can go well again after a 4 lb rise. Yorkshire Lady and Cosmos Raj are feared most.

14:25 Fantastic Fox

This can go the way of Roger Varian’s FANTASTIC FOX, who shaped well despite being left poorly placed in a steadily-run race when a close third at Ascot a fortnight ago and is taken to double his tally here from the same mark. The main threat could come from Royal Mews, who was disappointing on reappearance but possibly needed the run, ahead of last year’s winner Dubai Mirage.

15:00 Sucellus

SUCELLUS failed to repeat his C&D win at Chester last time, but the softer ground/quick turnaround were potential excuses, so he’s well worth another chance now back under less testing conditions, especially as he still figures off a handy mark on the pick of his efforts last season. Lion Ring may do better still for his new yard, while True Blue Moon looked back in form at Thirsk last week.

15:35 Waliyak

WALIYAK remains in good heart and is a big player on these terms down in class. Stunning Beauty can go well, as can the improving Passionova.

16:10 Real World

He may be running in his first pattern event, but it would come as no surprise if REAL WORLD was competing in Group 1s before the season is out given his rate of progress and he can make another successful climb up the ladder. Foxes Tales is a 3-y-o firmly on the upgrade and he rates the biggest threat ahead of the admirable veteran Euchen Glen.

16:40 Acquisitor

A competitive 7f handicap despite the small field with the vote in favour of ACQUISITOR. He’s been in red-hot form, completing the hat-trick at Chester (7.6f) last month, and looks sure to go close again. Northbound took a step back in the right direction at Thirsk and can feature, along with Mellys Flyer and Russco.

17:10 Northern Express

The free-going NORTHERN EXPRESS looked ideally suited by the switch to waiting tactics when reeling in a well-handicapped sort over this trip at York 2 weeks ago and, granted a good gallop to aim at once more, he’s fancied to defy a 7 lb higher mark again partnered by Paul Mulrennan. There is strength in opposition though, dangers including Il Bandito and Inveigle.
