15:55 Drawdown

A tricky contest in which plenty of the runners look open to improvement at this level and any positive market moves should be heeded. Tentative preference is for DRAWDOWN, with Al Tilal second choice ahead of Mawingo. Tinkerstar and Mr Ginja Ninja are more exposed but they have respectable handicap form.

16:30 Bridgetown

Julie Camacho’s BRIDGETOWN does not have the most convincing of profiles but he’s been found a very weak race here. Bernard Spierpoint is entitled to finish in fairly close proximity to the selection.

17:00 The Bell Conductor

There could still be more to come from THE BELL CONDUCTOR, who is 2-2 on AW surfaces after his winning stable debut here 12 days ago. Show Me A Sunset was also a last-time-out C&D winner but he looks a shade vulnerable off his new mark and a bigger threat to the selection may come from Mobarhin, who ran well when dropped to 6f for his recent stable debut and now has his first attempt at 5f.

17:30 Gypsy Whisper

Having come from well back to win at Chelmsford last time Le Reveur is respected off just 2lb higher, but preference is for GYPSY WHISPER who has twice run well here since joining Scott Dixon. She should have no problem with the extra furlong. The 3yos Publicist and Last Mission look best of the others.

18:00 Cephalus

A few of these are making their nursery debuts and could take a step foward, with Penna Rossa perhaps the most interesting given his sire has made a quick start with his runners on the new surface here. However, CEPHALUS at least showed he knew how to win when getting up late to grab a Chelmsford claimer last time. The return to a stiffer test is no problem at all. Eklil and Art Expert may prove best of the others.

18:30 Naval Captain

NAVAL CAPTAIN did all that was asked of him when winning on debut at Newcastle last month despite looking very green in the early stages. He should have learnt a lot from that experience and is likely to have improved again so looks the one to beat. Old Port caught the eye last time and he could have more to offer. Acrion is an interesting newcomer too.

19:00 Steelriver

Several in-form contenders but most are unproven on this new surface and for now it looks prudent to stick with those who have shown they can handle it. STEELRIVER did well to get as close as he did behind a progressive rival here last time and can reward each-way backers for a yard that is going well at present. Theotherside ran well over C&D on her debut for this yard after a break and may be the main danger, among a host of possibilities. Outrun The Storm is worth a look returned to 6f.

19:30 Patontheback( NAP)

Lincoln Gamble is interesting back at 6f but competition for the lead seems assured and the likelihood of a strong gallop will suit PATONTHEBACK (nap), who came from off the pace to win well last week at Wolverhampton. Miss Seafire can also have a say.
