13:00 – Fangorn

FANGORN returned to form when filling the runner-up spot at Doncaster last time, sticking to his task well given how freely he raced to be beaten just half a length. He can line up from the same mark here and his strong-travelling style of racing should carry him a long way in a contest where the jockeys can only ride with hands and heels. Plenty of his rivals have questions to answer and Fangorn could be worth another chance to end a losing run stretching back to September 2020.

13:30 – Remarkable Force

REMARKABLE FORCE makes plenty of appeal on debut in a novice where those with previous experience don’t set a high standard. He is certainly bred to be sharp (by Acclamation and a brother to a couple of two-year-old winners) and the fact he cost £140,000 at the breeze-ups suggests he looks the part as well. Alice Haynes has been among the winners with her two-year-olds this season and Remarkable Force is another one to keep on the right side.




14:05 – Viadelamore

After showing improved form when making a successful handicap debut at Redcar two weeks ago, where VIADELAMORE hit the front two furlongs out and keeping going well from there to land the spoils by a length and a half. That was also his first start for six months (gelded in the interim) and he is likely to progress further as he gains in experience. With that in mind, he is fancied to defy a 5 lb rise in the weights to go in again here.

14:35 – Naval College

NAVAL COLLEGE shaped with plenty of promise when fourth on his debut at Nottingham last month, coming from a long way back under a hands-and-heels ride to pass the post only four and a half lengths behind the winner. That form puts him right in the mix here and the large ‘P’ attached to his Timeform rating denotes that he is likely to make above-average improvement with the experience under his belt. He is from a good family and this looks a good opportunity for him to get off the mark before going on to bigger and better things.



15:10 – Divine Jewel

DIVINE JEWEL achieved a fair level of form in two starts as a two-year-old, filling the runner-up spot on her debut at Nottingham in September and then looking in need of the experience again when finishing third at Redcar the following month. She is clearly blessed with plenty of talent and the way she shaped last season suggests we haven’t seen the best of her just yet. In what is likely to prove an informative novice, Divine Jewel gets the vote to open her account at the third attempt.

15:45 – Loudspeaker

LOUDSPEAKER took a step forward when fourth on his handicap debut at Beverley last month, doing his best work at the finish to pass the post just a length and a half behind the winner. Admittedly, he didn’t look entirely straightforward under pressure (hung right from two furlongs out), but the way he came home suggests the step up to a mile and a half here will play to his strengths. Still relatively unexposed after just four starts, he is well worth another chance to prove himself better than a BHA mark of 72.

16:18 – Regal Envoy

REGAL ENVOY produced a career best to get off the mark in a maiden at Bath two weeks ago, displaying a willing attitude to make all by three and three quarter lengths. That was a fairly useful effort and he remains one to be interested in now making the switch to handicaps. He is certainly open to more improvement after just three starts and a BHA mark of 70 also looks a fair starting point to life in this sphere.
