13:40 – Fen Tiger

FEN TIGER has been at the top of his game lately, well backed when runner-up at Lingfield last time and, while he had no problem with the two-mile trip, he is equally effective at this distance. He might prove the answer to this tricky opener. Army of One wasn’t seen to best effect at Ffos Las last time and had been performing well prior to that so she’s feared most.

14:15 – Fiery Bond

Claims can be made for several of these, but having shaped up well behind an impressive winner at Ayr on his penultimate start, FIERY BOND looked unsuited by the drop back to five furlongs at Carlisle 24 days ago and it would come as no surprise to see Michael Dods’s charge in the mix back up in trip from what is still a fair mark. Glory Call has progressed gradually in novice and maiden events and can prove the biggest danger.

14:50 – Tabaretta

TABARETTA was an expensive purchase as a yearling and was well supported for his debut in a newcomers’ event at Sandown. He shaped much better than the distance beaten suggests on that occasion and built on that promise when runner-up to a promising sort at Salisbury last time. That form is some of the best on offer and he is entitled to progress again and looks the one to beat in first-time cheekpieces. James McHenry and In These Shoes both shaped with plenty of promise on their respective debuts and can also play a part.

15:20 – Bomb Squad

BOMB SQUAD attracted support having slipped below his last winning mark and shaped well when hitting the frame at Southwell two weeks ago. He came from further back than the others who made the frame in a race where it paid to race prominently and he will remain of interest from this sort of mark, while he also hasn’t been with this yard long. Giant Steps, Dick Datchery and Hard Solution are others who merit consideration in a competitive handicap.

15:50 – Heartbreak Lass

HEARTBREAK LASS was nibbled at in the betting ahead of her debut at Windsor and she was sharper for that experience when opening her account at Lingfield last time. She didn’t need to improve much on the bare form of her debut, but she did well to run down the speedy runner-up, and she has the potential to progress further now. This doesn’t look the deepest race of its type and she is taken to follow up under a penalty. Proclivity has some of the strongest form but is starting to look exposed now.

16:20 – Irresistable

This looks wide open, but IRRESISTABLE takes on her elders for the first time having run well when runner-up at Beverley when last seen in July and, with that race having thrown up winners subsequently, she could be the way to go now equipped with first-time blinkers. Facile Musselburgh scorer Gurkhali Girl, Lilikoi and Bungley are just a trio of others to consider.

16:50 – Ring of Gold

Plenty to consider here, but it may be worth chancing RING OF GOLD, who was in good form on the all-weather towards the end of last year, winning a couple of handicaps over this distance at Kempton, and he is entitled to sharpen up for his reappearance at Southwell last month. He remains on a fair mark and will be interesting if attracting support in the betting. Zumurud, back down in trip, and Deputy head up the dangers.

17:20 – Dandys Gold

Having ended a lengthy losing run at Ayr in June, DANDYS GOLD has remained in good form since, finding only an unexposed three-year-old too strong at Newcastle on her latest outing, and she makes more appeal than most in this field. Langholm, a winner over course and distance earlier this season, is another to consider.
