16:50 Odisseo

This looks trappy but ODISSEO had Hurry Up Hedley behind at Newcastle last week, when both were strong in the market, and he gets the vote under a penalty. Thatsthefinest took care of Twistaline in a similar race over C&D last month and also has claims.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

17:25 Thaler

This can go to Sir Michael Stoute’s THALER, who was a front-running second behind a smart dual subsequent winner over 7f here when last seen in June and sets a clear standard on this switch to sprinting. The main danger is Shobiz, who has finished placed in each of his three runs including a creditable third at Wolverhampton on his recent return after a lengthy absence.

18:00 Allerby (NAP)

For a humble 0-70 this looks a very warm race with several runners of interest. Top of the list is ALLERBY (nap), who ran a cracker over 1m here on her penultimate start and also ran well on her only other AW outing. Emraan returns to AW on a dangerous mark and is feared, while Liger King, Phuket Power and Capla Dream all have something to recommend them.

18:30 King Capella

Likely this boils down to three and the penalised Restitution, who’s been gelded since picked up at the sales for 150,000gns in July, will need to improve somewhat on his spring win. Beholding was impressive at Lingfield last time but she might find the concession of a penalty to the well-bred KING CAPELLA too much, the Stoute runner having shaped with a deal of promise on his recent Haydock debut.

19:00 Olympic Honour

Evaluation finally broke a sequence of short-priced defeats when winning a tactical affair at Lingfield last month and could yet do better when the emphasis is placed more on stamina. Yagan needs to improve on all previous Polytrack efforts off this mark and this can go to OLYMPIC HONOUR, who justified support at Ffos Las last time off the back of a consistent summer over hurdles and is only 2lb higher.

19:30 Like Sugar

Rumi is the one open to most improvement for a yard that’s been going well of late but the vote goes to LIKE SUGAR, who has a third and two wins to her name from three starts on Polytrack and will appreciate the return to the AW back from a break. Lhebayeb, who’s been running over much shorter trips, is a half-sister to a winning stayer and worth a look among the likely bigger prices.

20:00 Publicist

Preference is for PUBLICIST, who got back near her best with a second behind an improver over C&D three weeks ago and is a major player if she can back that up on this drop back in grade. Second choice is Pedestal, who finished well to go close off a much-reduced mark over 7f at Chepstow 18 days ago. The other one on the shortlist is Proclaimer, who was an eyecatcher at Newcastle on his first run after wind surgery and looks interesting on his step back up in trip.

20:30 Poet’s Eye

Mabo, Mountain Ash and Whatzupwithme all have something to recommend them but POET’S EYE has been knocking at the door and the addition of cheekpieces could see her get off the mark.
