13:50 - This fillies' nursery is one of the races that could easily swell the dividend. It's difficult to ignore Majestic Manner, whose maiden win looks better now than the dash for the rail Lingfield races often end up being. Deep Blue Sea is the other we want to have on our side, given she's been let in relatively lightly for winning at Yarmouth (form working out) and shaped that day as though seven furlongs will suit her all the better.
14:25 - The Cornwallis is a race we could easily end up taking three or four in. The daring option is to bank on Squats, whose profile is the most consistent in the field. He also has the level of form to put him in the mix and shapes as though a good test at five furlongs could prove his ideal conditions for the time being.
14:55 - That there are only seven runners in the Middle Park rather forces our hand. As it is there are only two places and the strong probability is that Ivawood will take one of them. Many of the other six are closely matched so to go against the favourite with even a couple of others would be trying to squeeze through a narrow gap.
15:25 - Again there are seven in the Fillies' Mile. The pecking order behind favourite Lucida is much clearer in this race, though, so we can try something a bit more subtle. Marsh Hawk was beaten by New Providence, who has herself been conquered by Lucida since, though she has since won impressively and shaped like the best filly in that race at Salisbury, anyway. She should give Lucida more to think about in the likely event that she stays a mile. Agnes Stewart has none of those doubts over her, already the winner of the May Hill and still on the up if that race is any guide.
16:00 - Six run in the Dewhurst, which sits somewhere in the middle of the Group 1 trio so far as difficulty is concerned. Maftool is the one we have to include, his win in a C&D Group 3 representing stronger form than he's been credited with. His story has also been one of consistent improvement, which gives added conviction to Placepot punters. We're also including Smuggler's Cove, who isn't a typical Placepot selection though has been priced up somewhat incredulously based on his win at Dundalk last Friday. If the clock was right, Smuggler's Cove could be very good indeed.
16:35 - Muteela looks a good place to start in the tricky Challenge Stakes. A consistent front-runner, she's exactly the type of horse to do well in this soft-ground contest, should she act under those conditions (unraced on softer than good). Those concerns are just enough to bring Breton Rock into the equation. He hasn't been out of the places all year and seems to thrive on testing ground; he won the apprentice handicap on Champions Day proper last year.
