12:30 Brazen Arrow

Cool Spirit and Iesha both won decisively last time but in weaker events. The former is 3lb ahead of his mark under the penalty but there are viable alternatives. Toptime has a big run in him back at 5f but BRAZEN ARROW looks well worth a crack at this trip and he’s on the up at present.

13:00 Louis Treize

Back from a three-week break LOUIS TREIZE should be recharged after his busy spell. He has some encouraging form for his current stable and looks worth another chance at this level. Second choice is Lorna Cole, ahead of last year’s third Blackcurrent. It’s also hard to dismiss Gossip and Papas Girl judged on ratings.

13:35 Ravenswing

De Vega’s Warrior sets the standard on his first run for new connections but this will be a different test. Government, National Charter and Illuminated all have claims but RAVENSWING is taken to confirm the undoubted promise of his sole 2yo start.

14:10 Prince Abu (NAP)

This step back up in grade may not prevent PRINCE ABU (nap) from recording another success. He has won his last two races in good style and looks open to further improvement over staying distances on AW. Black Kalanisi (second choice) is a likely danger on the back of his course win, while Orin Swift and First Charge give owner Laurence Bellman a respectable hand.

14:45 Bobby On The Beat

Aquamas went very close here last month and the form of that race has already been well advertised. She can go well, while Al Suil Eile and Last Date also have sound claims. BOBBY ON THE BEAT is thriving now though and he ran into a handicap blot when only second at Kempton last week.

15:20 Porfin

An absolute belter of a race for the grade featuring a host of interesting runners. Viva Voce, Love Your Work and Ginato are all ahead of their mark, while Back From Dubai has won his last three, Bobby Joe Leg’s win last month has been well franked and Always Dreaming is banging at the door. PORFIN hasn’t had things go his way since a Lingfield win last month but there’s a suspicion he’s still well treated and getting back over a longer trip may allow him to prove it. Back From Dubai might prove best of the rest.

15:55 Dark Enchantment

Steadily improving filly DARK ENCHANTMENT finished a good second over C&D last week and is taken to go one better. Her main form rival is Sir Henry Cotton, who warrants respect back down in class. Cloch Nua and The Evaporust Kid are open to improvement, while Honorary Member looks the pick of the newcomers.

16:25 Glorious Charmer

Sleight is a short price to fluff the start but that didn’t stop him from going desperately close at Newcastle three weeks ago and he could bolt up in a race like this if he gets it right from the stalls. Mayson Mount could take a big step forward today and needs a market check but Red Allure and GLORIOUS CHARMER appeal most. The latter is on a long losing streak but a repeat of either of his last two runs over this C&D would probably suffice now dipping his toe into 0-50 company.
