12:50 – Nellie French

Nellie French ran up to her best when third at Wolverhampton on her penultimate start and she underlined her wellbeing when runner-up at Newcastle last week, going down by just a neck. She found only an in-form sort too strong on that occasion and ought to give another good account in a race featuring plenty with something to prove at present.

13:20 – Funky Town Pinkie

Funky Town Pinkie was unable to complete the hat-trick here last month but she ran well under a penalty to finish a close-up fourth, just lacking the turn of foot required to make an impact in a race run at a steady gallop. A stronger gallop looks on the cards here, which will suit, and she is worth siding with.  

13:50 – Pittsburg

Pittsburg was arguably unlucky not to win a mile handicap here last month as he came from further back than ideal in a race run at a steady gallop and was only denied by a half a length. That was an encouraging effort and he appeals as being on a handy mark after edging up only 1 lb in the weights. He ought to be suited by this step up in trip to 11 furlongs – he won over 19 furlongs over hurdles – and he holds strong claims. 

14:20 – Dubai Jeanius

Dubai Jeanius wasn’t seen to best effect when only seventh in a mile handicap here last time – he was held up in a steadily-run race – but he had been in good form prior to that, hitting the frame in his three previous handicap outings at this venue. He had been noted staying on well at the end of his races, leaving the impression that he’d benefit from a stiffer test, so this step up to 11 furlongs can help bring about a bigger effort. He also appeals as being on a handy mark after being dropped 2 lb for his latest effort.

14:50 – Golden Speech

This looks like a good opportunity for Golden Speech who sets a decent standard for his rivals to aim at. Golden Speech was unable to justify odds-on favouritism when runner-up at Kempton last time – the third time in a row he has filled that position – but he bumped into a promising stablemate on that occasion and pulled a long way clear of the third. 

15:20 – Win Win Power

Win Win Power made a successful start for Mick Appleby, a trainer who does so well with his recruits, when landing a classified stakes over course and distance on New Year’s Day and he followed up in a similar contest over seven furlongs here on Sunday. Win Win Power was strong at the finish last time, leaving the impression that he’ll benefit from stepping back up to a mile, and he still has more to offer for this yard. He can defy a penalty and complete the hat-trick on his return to handicap company.

15:50 – Terry Two Jags

This is not a strong race so it could be worth siding with newcomer Terry Two Jags who starts out with trainer Hugo Palmer in exceptional form. Palmer has won with four of his last six runners and Terry Two Jags would not need to be anything out of the ordinary to enhance his trainer’s superb recent strike rate.

16:23 – Highland Queen

Highland Queen hasn’t been at her best the last twice but she has been given a chance by the handicapper and is now 3 lb lower than when a close-up third at Newcastle three starts ago. Highland Queen looks well treated on that form so could be worth chancing from this reduced mark. Jems Bond landed a gamble when winning in cosy style at Newcastle a couple of weeks ago and appeals as a big danger.
