Timeform take you through the card at Beverley on Friday evening...
"He did little wrong when second over C&D last time and faces a weak field in his bid to go one better..."
Timeform on Delph Crescent
18:00 - ARCANE DANCER (5) may not be operating at her peak at the moment, but a drop to claiming company combined with a return to this C&D should be enough to see her win a very weak event. Kody Ridge is in better form than most, but this extended seven furlongs may stretch him, while Major Crispies may make the frame if he is on a going day.
18:35 - QUE AMORO (6) produced the best effort of her short career to date when third at Carlisle last time, running green and keeping on well, all things considered, to be beaten just two lengths. That form received a boost when the winner added a Deauville Group 3 to her tally on Tuesday, and well clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings here, Que Amoro is fancied to see off the attentions of some interesting newcomers (Queen Jo Jo chief among them) and can open her account at the third time of asking under Paul Mulrennan.
19:10 - AREEN HEART (1) proved better than ever when belatedly resuming winning ways at Leicester last month, though he did so by the narrowest of margins, looking set to score by further when he originally hit the front and ultimately all out to hold off the fast-finishing runner-up. He is clearly not the easiest horse to win with, that not the first time he has pulled himself up in front, but Daniel Tudhope rides this track particularly well, and Areen Heart looks worth backing to add to a fine course record of his own (a win and two seconds from four starts here).
19:45 - DELPH CRESCENT (5) has been found a very easy opportunity to shed his maiden tag. He did little wrong when second over C&D last time and faces a weak field in his bid to go one better. Global Exceed may benefit from the return to this track. Branscombe is just about best of the rest.
20:20 - LEVER DU SOLEIL (11) has been consistent this year and the drop back in trip should pose no problems after a respectable effort at Wetherby. He has the chance to lead home a 1-2-3 for the in-form Tim Easterby yard, with Surrender and Power Sail also making some appeal in this penultimate leg of the Placepot, coming up against older more exposed rivals.
20:50 - OUR LITTLE PONY (9) would appear to hold sound claims from the same career-low mark as when second over six furlongs at Doncaster last week. She has a good record over this C&D and, top on weight-adjusted ratings, looks worth backing to provide jockey Faye McManoman with a landmark tenth victory on the Flat. Foxy Boy did well from a bad draw last time and is another C&D winner that can go close, while Pearl Noir, yet another C&D winner, nearly always runs his race and completes the shortlist.
