16:30 Bringbackmemories

A handful to consider, but BRINGBACKMEMORIES seems to have found his niche since switching to Tapeta, and there’s a good chance a 4lb rise for his recent win here won’t be beyond him. Throne Hall looks the main danger ahead of Glory Nights and Way Of Life with Sarsons Risk hard to weigh up now racing over an unaccustomed trip.

17:00 Magna Vega

Who’s Glen and Path To Dubai both make some appeal on paper and start in a weak race, so the betting can provide clues. Rocklyn and Albert Lasker are respected, but MAGNA VEGA should find this easier than the two turf events he tackled last summer, and he can get off the mark at the third attempt.

17:30 Rogue Raider 

This looks like the more interesting division, with King Of Spain and Thorntonledale Max (second choice) both making some appeal. Give It Up has claims if his stamina holds out, but ROGUE RAIDER made a good start to his career at Kempton 17 days ago and should prove well suited by the extra furlong.

18:00 Counsel

This looks competitive. Arika may reverse last month’s C&D placings with San Isidro and Wilde And Dandy, and he still has time to progress further. Homer Stokes has conditions in his favour, and he can go well, but last week’s penalised winners, Surprise Picture and COUNSEL may fight this out. The selection might find it easier to settle in what looks set to be a well-run race, and he looked in total command at Lingfield, a win recorded in a good Topspeed figure.

18:30 Clipsham La Habana

Ice Cool Harry has scope for improvement this year, but CLIPSHAM LA HABANA has less to prove than his rivals on the balance of current form. Unfortunate to run up against a progressive one at Newcastle in December, he wasn’t well positioned for much of the way at Lingfield since. This will probably take less winning. Golden Passport should appreciate the greater stamina test at the trip than at Wolverhampton on his last two starts and is preferred of the others, ahead of Airshow.

    19:00 Muscika

    Dark Side Thunder is 3-5 over C&D and has to be considered, while Rock Opera had excuses last time and could easily bounce back. The unexposed Quandary is another for the shortlist, but this can go to the veteran MUSCIKA, who retains the ability to win a race like this, and although out of the frame last time, that effort was probably better than it looks. She’s Centimental and Madame Fenella both hold each-way claims if producing their best.

    19:30 Reprised

    Rusheen Boy has more on his plate off his revised mark, while Old Chums is likely to face competition for the lead in this field. Wren Officer and Moyola (second choice) can go well, but REPRISED shaped nicely at Newcastle last time and could have more to come over this trip.

    20:00 The Bell Conductor (NAP)

    Revenite may yet fulfil his 2yo promise, but his two defeats last summer, albeit in good 3yo sprints, cast a shadow. Lihou, Crimson Angel and Reigning Profit all have something to recommend them, but the two to appeal most are Mondammej and THE BELL CONDUCTOR (nap). The former should appreciate the return to 5f, but the selection has some classy form on Tapeta, and he can leave last month’s return to action/stable debut well behind him.

    20:30 Martin Spirit

    A competitive race of its type, with three last-time-out winners and several rivals who come here on the back of good runs too. King Viktor (second choice) might prove best of the former category, and he’s a leading contender, while Eagle One, Molly Mischief, Smokey Malone and Polar Princess all make some appeal. MARTIN SPIRIT is more speculative, but his run here 18 days ago, when meeting trouble in running, was quite encouraging, and the form has received some boosts since. A subsequent defeat over fences is easy enough to excuse.
