Timeform on Bloom

#4 Looks Like Magic - Fairview R6 (14:15)

Looks Like Magic produced what was by far her best performance of the season to belatedly open her account at this venue last month. The runner-up has already boosted that form by going in subsequently, and there could be more to come from her now she's got her head in front. She gets the vote to make a successful handicap debut, with Teofilia and Sherwood Forest looking the pick of the remainder.

#4 Philos - Fairview R7 (14:45)

Philos continued his improvement when doubling his tally for the season at this course last month, producing a career-best effort to do so. He is a horse on the up at present and looks sure to go well again. Kimberley Star makes the most appeal for second, with Dubula making up the shortlist.

#5 Bloom - Fairview R8 (15:15)

Bloom made an impressive winning start to her career in what has since proved a strong maiden at this course in August, and she improved in defeat when a close second again at this venue last time. She sets a lofty standard in this race and is difficult to oppose. Linda Loves Lace makes each-way appeal, as does Sao Paulo, who is a four-time winner at this course.
