13:20 Craven

Plenty of runners but, in terms of form, it’s a fairly straightforward race to assess. York runner-up CRAVEN has the best chance on the bare figures, with The Van Man (second choice) and Carvetii the main threats. The market signals should help to gauge the prospects of the newcomers.

13:50 Jim’s Cracker

Ordinary fare so a good opportunity for JIM’S CRACKER to step up on his debut fourth behind a colt who went on to run very well at Royal Ascot. None of the newcomers leap off the page so perhaps Equity’s Darling, who also shaped with promise on debut, could be the one to chase home the selection.

14:20 Photograph (NAP)

Recent Chepstow winner Breckland has sound claims off a 4lb higher mark, although Maylah, sixth that day, has realistic prospects of turning the tables on these more favourable terms. Ready preference, though, is for the well-treated PHOTOGRAPH (nap), who showed clear signs of a return to form over 1m2f last time and should be much happier now back at 1m. Copperline is better than he showed at Hamilton and may prove the main danger.

14:50 Keep Me Happy

Plenty of runners and a particularly trappy contest. The main protagonists may be Enderman, So Grateful, Gorgeous General, Hard Solution, Canaria Prince, Embla, Brazen Idol and, in particular, She’s A Deva (second choice) along with KEEP ME HAPPY. The selection was third to a progressive winner last time while the second that day has gone in since.

15:25 Northbound

Langholm and Swinging Eddie have nothing to prove on their current form and both can go well again but NORTHBOUND near the foot of the weights ran two very good races over C&D last year, including in this race, and he ran better than the bare result on his reappearance here when getting no sort of run. Langholm could be the main danger in a race where many of them have something to prove.

16:00 Aplomb

Cases can be made for all eight runners but with Jane Chapple-Hyam’s string in fine form lately, Nottingham second APLOMB gets a narrow vote. Snash, wearing cheekpieces for the first time, may chase him home.

16:30 Julia Augusta

As a once-raced novice winner who represents notable connections, JULIA AUGUSTA looks open to plenty of progress and could well defy a 5lb penalty. Positive Force (second choice) is better off with Cubana Habana on C&D form in April, though the latter won next time and still warrants respect. Enzos Angel is also on the shortlist.

17:03 Satanic Moon

Little Emma Loulou won her latest start and did so in the style of one who could also be of major interest over this 3f longer trip. However, preference is for two of the several rivals who try new headgear. SATANIC MOON and Balgowan have not sported any such aids before but their recent performances give reasons to believe that it may well help them to dig a bit deeper.
