1.30 Sunbets All-Weather Championships Apprentice Handicap (2) 7f1y

Analyst's Verdict:
Eljaddaaf recorded another impressive come-from-behind success over C&D last month and he's bound to go well in his hat-trick bid, especially with a well-run race on the cards. Master Speaker, Squats and Gallipoli are all potential threats.

Timeform Top Rated:
116 4. SQUATS William Haggas Georgia Cox
114+ 14. SILENT ECHO Peter Hedger Ben Robinson (3)
114 5. ELJADDAAF Dean Ivory Jack Duern


2.00 Betway All-Weather Marathon Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 1m7f169y

Analyst's Verdict:
Watersmeet has really thrived on racing this winter, and he looks sure to make another bold bid in a race where he acquitted himself well last year. Red Verdon is unproven at this trip, but merits plenty of respect, while Mountain Bell may still have more to offer.

Timeform Top Rated:
124 5. RED VERDON Ed Dunlop James Doyle
122 6. SOLDIER IN ACTION Mark Johnston Adam Kirby
122 7. WATERSMEET Mark Johnston Joe Fanning


2.30 32Red All-Weather Fillies' And Mares' Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 7f1y

Analyst's Verdict:
Diagnostic likely hasn't been seen to best effect in small-field tactical affairs on her last 2 outings and is taken to get back on the up with a bang now. Summer Icon ran a blinder when runner-up at listed level at Wolverhampton 3 weeks ago and is likely to go close with a repeat of that form, while Zest has won twice here this winter and is also much respected. 117p 3. DIAGNOSTIC William Haggas James Doyle

116 13. ZEST James Fanshawe Daniel Muscutt
115 11. SUMMER ICON Mick Channon Charles Bishop


3.05 Betway All-Weather Sprint Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 6f1y

Analyst's Verdict:
Little to choose between most of these so tactics/luck in running are likely to be key. This could be set up for a closer and Atletico looks the one who's overpriced. Kachy has looked better than ever when winning both his starts here this year and is an obvious threat along with last year's winner Kimberella.

Timeform Top Rated:
131 8. KACHY Tom Dascombe Richard Kingscote
129 9. KIMBERELLA Richard Fahey Paul Hanagan
128 7. INTISAAB David O'Meara Martin Harley


3.40 32Red 3 Year Old All-Weather Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 6f1y

Analyst's Verdict:
Corinthia Knight goes from strength to strength and will likely take a bit of stopping as he bids to make it 4 in a row. Breathless Times has come a long way in a short space of time and looks capable of making an impact at this level, while Never Back Down has been saved for this since winning at Wolverhampton in December and is another who looks open to further progress.

Timeform Top Rated:
117 3. CORINTHIA KNIGHT Archie Watson Oisin Murphy
114p 9. NEVER BACK DOWN Hugo Palmer Josephine Gordon
111 10. ROCK ON BAILEYS Chris Dwyer Lewis Edmunds


4.10 Sunbets All-Weather Mile Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 1m1y

Analyst's Verdict:
A winner at this meeting 12 months ago, Second Thought has improved again this winter, landing back-to-back listed contests. He boasts an unbeaten record of 6-6 on all-weather and looks sure to make a bold bid to maintain that impressive statistic. Arcanada, Goring and Sacred Act can do battle for the minor money.

Timeform Top Rated:
127 10. SECOND THOUGHT William Haggas James Doyle
124 1. ARCANADA Tom Dascombe Richard Kingscote
121+ 2. CAPTAIN JOY Tracey Collins R. P. Whelan


4.40 Betway Easter Classic All-Weather Middle Distance Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 1¼m

Analyst's Verdict:
Master The World needed the intervention of the stewards to win the Winter Derby 5 weeks ago but he was a deserving winner (likely to have got up in his own right but for interference from the demoted Mr Owen) and is taken to land another valuable prize. Mr Owen is sure to make another bold bid with Victory Bond another to consider.

Timeform Top Rated:
126 4. MASTER THE WORLD David Elsworth Sean Levey
125 10. VICTORY BOND William Haggas James Doyle
124 5. MR OWEN David Simcock Oisin Murphy
