Timeform on Break The Silence

17:30 - PIAZON (4) was not disgraced when third of 12 in a handicap at Redcar on his latest appearance and is taken to go two better today at course where he holds an impressive record (six-time C&D winner).

18:00 - Cheveley Park have the top two in the betting here with CREATIVITY (7) and Finery. Preference is for Creativity, who was a good second in a nursery at this course 17 days ago. That effort, which proves she handles the surface, sets the standard on form. London Calling is the most experienced horse in the race and may prove the best of the rest.

18:30 - YOUNG JOHN (2) won at Chepstow last month and then ran creditably to finish runner-up in a handicap at Pontefract. He showed fairly useful form on this surface for his previous yard and is well treated having won off higher marks in the past. He can continue in his rich vein of form.

19:00 - Three-time C&D winner BREAK THE SILENCE (4) has been collared close home on both of his last two starts but can resume winning ways back in trip. He has been holding his form well of late and looks sure to give another good account.

19:30 - MOVE IN FASTER (3) has to prove he handles the surface, but he shaped well for the second race in succession last time and is expected to go close off a favourable mark. He has been threatening to come good for some time and his recent efforts suggest he is worth siding with on his Fibresand debut.
Atalanta Queen is looking for her fourth course win of the year and is the obvious danger.

20:00 - BONNEVILLE (9) remains a maiden after 17 starts but his best performances have come at this course - he has reached the frame on all three previous visits - and he could be worth chancing at a big price. RISK MITIGATION (14) put in a good performance to finish second in a handicap over C&D five days ago and a repeat of that form will put him firmly in the mix.

20:30 - MARVEL (4) finished runner-up for a fourth consecutive time when short odds on at Newcastle last time but continues to run to form and should appreciate the step back up in trip today. He tops Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings and is taken to finally break his maiden here on his fibresand debut.
