13:00 Percy Prosecco

Simon Walker on an easy last-time-out winner is a recipe for a short price and the temptation is to take on Pearly Prince, who was evidently suited by tackling fast turf for the first time at Ffos Las and is 6lbs worse off with the less-exposed third Tribuna Uffizi.

The inconsistent Grandscape goes well here and is worth considering at a price, but PERCY PROSECCO has slid to a handy mark and gets the nod round a course he likes – having offered more in the blinkers last time.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

13:30 Battle Of The Nile

James Ferguson boasts a useful strike-rate with two-year-olds, especially on the all-weather. His BATTLE OF THE NILE (NAP) showed more under Oisin Murphy last time, remains open to further improvement. Bro, who was well backed ahead of his debut here in June, starts handicap life on a lowly mark and is a danger.

14:00 If You Can Dream

Roccozaam started a short price when behind Flash Betty at Lingfield 10 days ago and has a fair chance of turning things round on 4lbs better terms for a yard among the winners, but this can go to IF YOU CAN DREAM.

From a good sprinting family, interestingly three of her five successful siblings won in first-time headgear, namely the yard’s Glacier Point (cheekpieces), brother Murqaab (blinkers) and Streamline (hood).

14:35 Samara Star

This is likely to concern SAMARA STAR and Heartbreaker. They have both shown ability but in different circumstances and it’s not easy to weigh up their relative talents. With Samara Star’s victory coming over course and distance, she gets the marginal vote.

15:10 Colinton

There’s a fair chance COLINTON, who is out of a half-sister to a middle-distance winner, will improve again for the big step up in trip and there can’t be any complaints about a 4lbs rise for last month’s victory here. Saulire Star is a threat, while good money for the ex-Irish Wadacre Gogo would be interesting.

15:45 Fantalope

A few habitual hard-pullers in here, namely Dickens, Mashkoorah and Rain Gauge, and all will need to settle better in a race lacking a confirmed front-runner. Johnny Boom has progressed since upped to this sort of trip and has an obvious chance on his Tapeta debut, but FANTALOPE has done better with each of her three starts to date and is preferred.

16:15 Lawmans Blis

A good chance this will go to one of the three three-year-olds, with LAWMANS BLIS (who has been gelded since last seen) fancied to reverse Yarmouth placings in June with Moonlit Night on 4lbs better terms for his in-form yard. Blue Beret’s recent improvement has come on turf, and she has to prove her stamina.
