18:10 – Macchiavello

A few of these have shown clear winning potential, with handicap debutante Carlton And Co, Libertus (second choice) and Stromboli all high on the list. MACCHIAVELLO may not have lived up to expectations for previous connections but he has joined a shrewd yard (who have enjoyed a memorable week at York) and he still has time to deliver an improved display.

18:40 – Dawson Lane

A crackerjack of a race for the grade. So Grateful (second choice) was very well backed when seeing off 13 rivals over 6f in a 0-80 here eight days ago and he has to come right into the reckoning with the drop in trip unlikely to faze him. Harrogate returns to the AW off a 5lb lower mark than for a recent turf win, while Mews House, Ustath and Birdie Bowers also come here in good order. The really interesting runner is DAWSON LANE (nap), who left the impression she could prove a fair bit better than this mark when fourth on her handicap debut in June, travelling very strongly but still looking inexperienced off the bridle. In what should be a well-run event she can show her true colours today.

19:10 – Atlantis Blue

This race revolves around ATLANTIS BLUE, who didn’t fire when favourite at Salisbury last time but is the standout contender on the rest of her form including a close call on Polytrack in April. She looks worth another chance back on AW and gets the vote in her bid to make it fifth time lucky. Roger Varian’s striking newcomer Prakasa is feared most, although Pretending is out of a 1m4f winner and it wouldn’t be a surprise if she left her debut form behind on this big step up in trip.

19:40 – Back From Dubai

This looks competitive for the grade. Ring Of Gold ended 2021 in fine form but this is a tough assignment on his return. Thrave and Biplane (second choice) come right into the reckoning, while the class-dropping Ebury is also considered. Everything looks in place for a big run from BACK FROM DUBAI, however, and Roy Bowring’s 5yo can register a fifth course win.

20:15 – Red Astaire

The penalised Finbar’s Lad has more on his plate today but he still has potential and shouldn’t be underestimated. All Go (second choice) has been off since her improved effort at Chepstow nine weeks ago but is high on the list now switched to Tapeta. Preference is for RED ASTAIRE, who appreciated the drop to 1m last time and could progress again back at 7f.

20:45 – Thaayer

Hardy should give it another good go and he is high on the list, while the unexposed Tea Garden could leave her previous efforts behind her now handicapping at a low level. THAAYER has turned in two creditable efforts since a wind operation and may be able to gain a first success away from Newcastle.
