"...he showed himself far too good for the grade with a ready victory."

Timeform on Motamayiz

14:10 - CAPPANATY CON (2) shaped encouragingly on his first outing for Michael Attwater when runner-up at Lingfield five days ago, making his effort earlier than the pair he split in a well-run race. He sets the standard in this field and, having fallen to a handy mark, looks to have solid claims of going one better now stepped back to five furlongs.

14:40 - CUBAN BREEZE (7) ticks plenty of boxes on her debut and could be up to getting off the mark at the first attempt. A Bated Breath fill, she is bred to be precocious, with her dam also winning as a two-year-old, and, receiving weight from all but one rival, she may be able to get the better of a trio of winners in Hot Scoop, Follow Suit and Julie Johnson.

15:10 - DEVILS ROC (1) got back on track after six months off when a creditable fifth at Lingfield last month. His last four visits to this course have yielded two victories, both over this trip, and with a reappearance run now under his belt, he gets the vote to take advantage of this drop in class and return to winning ways.

15:40 - REAL ESTATE (1) landed a hat-trick of wins on the all-weather around the turn of the year, and has returned in much the same form, if not better in fact, since the restart, finishing a close second at Lingfield at the start of last month, before getting no luck in running when third over this course and distance seven days ago. He finished with running left on that occasion, and with Michael Attwater's string in good form at present, he is certainly one to keep an eye on racing from the same mark.

16:15 - MOTAMAYIZ (8) confirmed the promise of his reappearance third at Lingfield when showing improved form to get off the mark in a course-and-distance handicap seven days ago, the switch to more positive tactics proving fruitful as he showed himself far too good for the grade with a ready victory. He is a well-connected individual, hailing from Roger Varian's yard, and is likely to continue improving, with this step up in grade unlikely to be a stumbling block.

16:50 - Purchased for €340,000 as a foal and being a half-brother to several winners, including Arbalet and Jally, TAWTHEEF (6) makes plenty of appeal on paper on his debut. Marcus Tregoning doesn't have a particularly outstanding record with newcomers, but his inmates are bang in-form at the minute, and hopefully that can rub off on Tawtheef, who is taken to prove better than those with experience.

17:20 - ROCK OF FAME (8) was well backed on her reappearance run at Windsor last week and she progressed nicely making her handicap debut, still showing greenness but almost getting the job done from an attractive opening mark. She is open to further improvement, particularly over this trip, and has excellent claims of going one better here.

17:50 - COMPETITION (3) ran well when third on his first outing for Michael Appleby at Wolverhampton at the start of last month, and was backed as though a follow up was expected at Haydock last week. He was unable to get the better of a well-treated one on that occasion, but pulled clear of the remainder, and with Tom Marquand taking over in the saddle here, he is worth another chance in a weak-looking race.
