13:00 – Fairy Cross

FAIRY CROSS is bred to be smart and seems sure to improve on her promising debut on the Rowley Course last month. That race is working out well, with the winner finishing runner-up at Royal Ascot on her next start, and Fairy Cross was far from given a hard time, finishing with running left at the line. The step up to seven furlongs will suit and she looks the one to beat. Newcomers Dark Majesty and Pride of The Pack both make some appeal on paper and can chase the selection home.

13:30 – Ashky

ASHKY has run to a similar level in all three of her starts so far, taking a small step forward on her all-weather debut at Lingfield last time, and the form of her previous two starts has worked out well. The handicapper may have taken a chance with her opening mark of 72 and she is just the type to improve further now entering this sphere. A Day Odette also runs in this grade for the first time and is a threat, along with Melodramatica switched to turf.

14:05 – Minnetonka

This looks a competitive renewal of this listed event and it is the Richard Hannon-trained MINNETONKA who is taken to come out on top. She ran out a seriously impressive winner on debut at Salisbury two weeks ago, sealing the race with a terrific turn of foot at the furlong pole to score by seven lengths. She represents last year’s winning stable and she could be smart. Lezoo did well to catch an experienced rival at Bath a fortnight ago so she’s fancied to give the selection most to think about, ahead of George Boughey’s pair Malrescia and Believing.

14:40 – Stowell

This looks trappy and a case can be made for them all, so at the odds it may be worth siding with STOWELL. He once again shaped like a horse ahead of his mark in a handicap at Royal Ascot last week, having every chance until hanging right inside the final furlong. It is encouraging that he is turned out quickly and he should remain competitive now stepping back down in trip and back up in grade. Kemari seems sure to be in the mix if, as expected, building on his recent York fourth after an absence, while 2020 winner Universal Order needs considering, too.

15:15 – Sunray Major

SUNRAY MAJOR looked a potential Group 1 performer when winning his first two starts last season, but he hasn’t quite progressed as expected so far this season, though he went like the best horse at the weights in the John of Gaunt Stakes at Haydock last time. He was caught further back than ideal on that occasion, making up a lot of ground in the closing stages, and he may still have a bigger performance in the locker. It is worth remembering he is a half-brother to Kingman and it is too soon to write him off. Pogo and Laneqash finished in front of him that day and are sure to be on the premises too.

15:50 – Tuscan Cloud

TUSCAN CLOUD showed improved form to open her account on handicap debut over a mile and a quarter at Leicester last month and she looks a horse to keep on the right side now. The way she ground her way to the front in the final furlong of a soundly-run affair underlining that she’ll be suited by a step up to this trip, and that she didn’t do a whole lot once she got to the front suggests she ought to stay ahead of the assessor. She is fancied to see of improving three-year-olds Mimikyu and Lady Labelle.

16:25 – Chips And Rice

CHIPS AND RICE took a step forward when sharing the spoils on her handicap deubt at Haydock and, with the promise of better to come from this filly, she looks the way to go following a 5 lb rise in the weights. Jean Baptiste regained the winning thread at Chester recently and shouldn’t be far away, but Aryaah could prove most troublesome if able to get back on track following a low-key display in the aforementioned Haydock race jointly won by the selection.
