17:10 – WOODSTOCK

Provided none of the newcomers are above average this looks a good opportunity for WOODSTOCK, who has a useful pedigree and shaped promisingly when well supported for his debut at Southwell a fortnight ago. He travelled well in a prominent position but was picked up by another debutant inside the final furlong, leaving the impression he would tighten up for the run. Granted normal improvement he ought to prove tough to beat. Magnusson represents an in-form yard who can ready one and needs monitoring in the market.

17:40 – INVESTED

This isn’t a competitive restricted maiden so it may be worth backing INVESTED to improve from her debut run over course and distance three weeks ago. Her sales price nearly doubled at the breeze-ups last year and she was getting the hang of it late in the day having been last of all turning for home, leaving the impression she’d take a big step forward. She tops the list ahead of Copper Bay, who didn’t finish far behind her in the same race.

18:10 – COME ON GIRL

COME ON GIRL goes particularly well at Lingfield – her last four runs have come at that track – and she has been holding her form well this winter. She again ran creditably over seven furlongs last month and may be worth chancing now dropping back to six furlongs and having the blinkers refitted, while a good-value claimer also takes 7 lb off. Kensington Agent and Trusty Rusty also arrive in form and should be considered.

18:40 – BEAUZON

BEAUZON took advantage of a career-low mark when resuming winning ways over course and distance at the start of January and he bounced back from a lesser effort when finishing third at Lingfield three weeks ago. He travelled nicely that day and didn’t get the clearest of runs in the closing stages so he is worth backing to build on that effort in a race where several arrive with questions to answer. Nubough is a while without a win but will appreciate the step back up to 6f and looks on a workable mark.

19:10 – BIT HARSH

BIT HARSH displayed ability on his first three starts around this time last year but he made a disappointing return to action after a gelding and breathing operation on handicap debut at Yarmouth in October. However, he has progressed nicely since returning to all-weather, winning his last three starts and that form is proving strong. Bit Harsh beat another well-treated sort who has since franked the form so a subsequent 5 lb rise looks lenient and the four-time is very much on. Halic made a winning handicap debut last time and is respected on his first run for a new yard.

19:40 – SAUSALITO

SAUSALITO was well backed on his return to action at Southwell at the beginning of the month and, though he was underwhelming, he showed why that support came for him when opening his account in a first-time visor over course and distance last week. He was suited by a strong pace on that occasion and there is a strong possibility this will also be run to suit, so he’s taken to follow up. Six Strings quickly returned to form last time and heads the list of possible dangers.

20:10 – ETERNAL HOPE

ETERNAL HOPE wasn’t knocked about on her recent introduction at Wolverhampton where she finished hot on the heels of stablemate Mountain Song, who had the benefit of prior experience. It should again be close between them but Eternal Hope arguably possesses the greater potential and is taken to emerge on top this time. Glowing Sky looks the pick of the Gosden-trained duo is best of the rest.
