18:30 – Billy Roberts

With so many of his rivals making little appeal, BILLY ROBERTS should have a good chance. He won four times between last September and this May and has kept his form, whereas most of the rest have lost theirs. Fellow last-time runner-up Dogged looks the one to provide him most opposition.

19:00 – Killybegs Warrior

Lord Uhtred showed something at the breeze-up sales and on his race debut at Yarmouth, but KILLYBEGS WARRIOR will be hard to beat judged on the level of performance and promise he demonstrated when winning at Newmarket. Both are entered in the Group 1 National Stakes at the Curragh. There is potential among the others but it looks to be of the longer-term variety.

19:30 – Spangled Mac

This looks to concern Alethiometer and SPANGLED MAC with preference for the latter who won with plenty to spare, despite the narrow winning margin, over this trip on the AW before impressing at Yarmouth on Wednesday. He should be ahead of the handicapper even with a penalty. Alethiometer held on pleasingly at Doncaster and should give the selection a run for his money, with Kingofhell preferred to Sweet Mist of the others.

20:00 – Boudica Bay

The course form of BOUDICA BAY gives her the edge but Second Collection has a big run in her after not getting much luck at Chester recently and it is hard to fault the consistency of Amor De Mi Vida, despite the latter not looking the easiest of rides. No Guts No Glory also comes into it following wind surgery and now having her first crack at a handicap.

20:30 – Shaara

The Gosden-trained filly SHAARA failed to shine in the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury in April but she won her sole 2yo start and can capitalise on this drop back in grade. Shampion is an obvious danger for Roger Varian on her second outing.

21:00 – Giovanni Baglione (nap)

All four runners have improving profiles but preference is for GIOVANNI BAGLIONE (nap) who won by a convincing margin on his handicap debut at Newmarket last month. He’s taken to defy an 8lb rise. Carlisle runner-up Dion Baker is second choice.
