16:10 – Wild Crusade

This looks a good opportunity for WILD CRUSADE after he went close in a strongly run novice here three weeks ago. Sea Grey should not be underestimated with his penalty after defying market weakness at Lingfield.

16:45 – My Mirage

Sent off at only 5-2 here two months ago, a big run was evidently expected from MY MIRAGE and she duly got close despite starting slowly. That form hasn’t worked out particularly well but she looks a good thing to progress from that initial inexperience. Dubai Lady is dropped in distance with a penalty but still rates the standout threat.

17:15 – Mcqueen

There are cases to be made for the reliable Aurelia Gold, Intriguing Lady on her best form, and Safety First now handicapping over a new trip. However, MCQUEEN looked open to improvement at 1m when coming from a long way back, and sweeping wide on the home turn, to win at Chelmsford and he can cope with this stiffer company on a track that should suit. Midgetonamission shouldn’t be far away, either, but Safety First is preferred for the forecast.

17:45 – Isola Rossa

Preference is for ISOLA ROSSA, who was in good form when last seen and looks open to further improvement over 1m. Unexposed Totally Charming is feared most, particularly if the market speaks positively on his debut for a new stable. Other likely players are Espresso Freddo and Giuseppe Cassioli, who finished first and second in a C&D contest 24 days ago.

18:15 – Aljaryaal

This looks to lie between Forge Valley Lad and ALJARYAAL. The former tends to hang left but he ran perfectly well over C&D two starts ago and was only narrowly seen off at Lingfield last month. He is a big danger but there should be more to come from Aljaryaal at this trip, having won convincingly on his debut for the yard and worn down at only the last minute by one who was getting weight and is having a very good winter. Blue Medici is third on the list.

18:45 – Apollo One

An intriguing event in which all five runners can have a case argued. Lord Of The Lodge is favoured by the weights but he would appeal more at 7f. Fernando Rah and Edraak both produced smart handicap performances last month, albeit over a different trip, and are greatly respected but APOLLO ONE could be the answer. He has to concede weight all round but he had some smart form last year, goes well fresh and appeals as the type to do even better this year.

19:15 – Imperium

Oceanline has been reliable on the AW and needs respect but IMPERIUM (nap) puts that firmly in the shade with his five AW wins from six attempts. He looks particularly well suited by 2m at this track and can prove strongest in the finish once again. Coltrane would be of major interest but for his poor show last time out and he is feared most.
