13:25 – Ananda

Those with experience don’t set a daunting standard and newcomer ANANDA, who ticks pretty much all the right boxes on paper, may well be the answer. She fetched €525,000 as a yearling and it will certainly look significant if the market speaks in her favour. Canadiansmokeshow should pick up a race before long and Distinguished Lady remains with potential, but Eximious is feared most on the back of her encouraging debut effort at this course.

FANCY A CHANCE TO WIN £/€25K?

14:00 – Makinitup

MAKINITUP was a two-time winner last year but came up short when tried at listed level. She was given a considerate ride on her return to action at Newbury in May but bounced back to her best when a close second at Haydock three weeks ago, pulling clear of the remainder. A 2 lb rise for that effort is fair enough and she now has a good claimer taking 5 lb off. Verreaux Eagle and Piastrella rate the principal dangers.

14:35 – Classic

CLASSIC is beautifully bred – out of a useful mare who is the only foal of George Washington – and he shaped with plenty of promise on debut in a race which is working out well at Newbury last month. He was all the rage in the betting following that eye-catching run but was unable to progress as expected at Goodwood last time, but left the impression he won’t be long in opening his account, and he looks to have been presented with an excellent opportunity now. Berkshire Phantom is the obvious one to give him most to do unless the betting vibes are strong surrounding likely-looking newcomer Obelix.

15:10 – Shigar

SHIGAR returned from a wind and gelding operation an improved model when scoring at Lingfield last month, putting his experience to good use but also deserving extra credit as he came from an unpromising position. That form is working out well and he is now expected to follow up on handicap debut from a fair opening mark. Alooqaal has made an excellent start to life with Mick Appleby and rates the chief threat, though The Covex Kid can’t be ruled out in his bid to land a remarkable second hat-trick of the season.

15:45 – Wahraan

WAHRAAN was progressive last season, opening his account at Pontefract before making a mockery of a revised mark back in handicap company over a mile and a quarter at this course on his next start. He still looked ahead of his mark but didn’t have things go his way next time, but what disappointing on his final start at Ascot in September. Wahraan has been gelded since and is very much the type to make a better four-year-old, so looks very interesting on his return to action. Cemhaan and HMS President bring solid recent form to the table, though, and will take advantage if the selection isn’t ready to roll.

16:20 – Simply Sondheim

SIMPLY SONDHEIM has done nothing but improve since entering handicaps, winning all five of his starts, and showing no signs of slowing down when bolting up over this trip at Newcastle last week. That was his first start for 10 weeks and he proved better than ever, having plenty in hand at the finish, and will be incredibly hard to deny again turned out under a penalty. Savrola is also considered along with the well-bred Super Chief.

16:54 – Aphelios

APHELIOS was only denied a successful debut for Mick Appleby by one that had the run of things at Chelmsford and has no problem going one place better at Carlisle on Thursday. If turned out quickly, he is strongly fancied to follow up. Thunder Legend and The Green Man look like the main dangers.
