13:42 – Refuge

REFUGE arrives here in a rich vein of form after winning his last two starts at Hamilton. Both wins came over five furlongs and he did it quite comfortably on the last occasion, keeping going well to land the spoils by nearly two lengths. This will be a quicker-than-ideal turnaround after just six days off, but it goes without saying that he is potentially well treated under a 5-lb penalty if arriving in the same sort of form.

14:17 – Dream For Gold

DREAM FOR GOLD looked in need of the experience when third on his debut at Nottingham last month, showing signs of greenness at both ends of the race. He did well under the circumstances to be beaten only five lengths, particularly as the first two both had the benefit of a previous run. That form puts Dream For Gold right in the mix in this maiden and he seems sure to take plenty of beating with further progress on the cards.

14:52 – Noble Anthem

NOBLE ANTHEM finished fourth in a novice event at Newcastle last time and that form could hardly have worked out better. The winner Eldar Eldarov followed up on his next start in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot and a couple of those who finished around Noble Anthem have also won since. It was clearly a strong contest and Noble Anthem is very much one to keep on the right side now making the switch to handicaps. He remains open to improvement and an opening BHA mark of 85 certainly looks fair.

15:27 – Consensus De Vega

CONSENSUS DE VEGA took a step back in the right direction when filling the runner-up spot in a maiden at Yarmouth last time, looking the likeliest winner for a long way (hit the minimum price of 1.01 in-running) before being collared in the final 100 yards. That was a fairly useful performance and the way she shaped there suggests the drop back to seven furlongs today will play to her strengths. In a weak-looking maiden, she probably won’t need to improve on that effort to get off the mark.

16:02 – Orbaan

ORBAAN is on a losing run stretching back to July 2020, but he is threatening to come good soon after hitting the frame on his last two starts. He was beaten less than two lengths on his latest outing at York, doing all his best work in the final furlong to snatch the runner-up spot. He can line up from the same mark here and this is a weaker race than those he usually contests. The strong pace forecast will play to his strengths and today could be the day he finally resumes winning ways.

16:37 – Lituus

LITUUS is going the right way now and there was plenty to like about his latest effort at Carlisle. He was beaten less than five lengths and looked unlucky not to finish closer still after being left with plenty to do. The way he shaped there suggests this longer trip could eke out a bit more improvement and he is well worth another chance to prove himself better than a BHA mark of 56. The booking of Oliver Stammers, who is good value for his 3-lb claim, also gives cause for optimism.

17:12 – Hello Power

HELLO POWER produced another sound effort when finding one too good at Wolverhampton last month, passing the post just a length and a half behind the winner and arguably deserving extra credit after being hampered a furlong out. That form reads well in the context of this race and the fact she arrives here in good nick could count for a lot when you consider that the majority of her rivals have questions to answer.
