Timeform on Indian Sounds

16:30 - Despite being sent off 150/1, JIGS PRINCESS (7) showed a fair bit on debut before seemingly unsuited by the drop in trip when third at Thirsk late last month. This step up to seven furlongs should show her to much better effect however, and she is an interesting contender now sent handicapping for the in-form Brian Ellison yard.

17:00 - MASTER OF BRAZIL (3) was clued up and showed plenty of ability when runner-up on debut last month, and though he ran below form when third at Wolverhampton last time, he wasn't seen to best effect under the circumstances, having to work hard to get to the front from his wide draw and needing constant cajoling along once getting there. He remains capable of better and is well worth another chance here.

17:30 - A fairly useful filly, KNOW NO LIMITS (4) has been disappointing in her two runs this season, but is at her best when up with the pace, and while she arrives here with a bit to prove, she looks a serious player on these terms. CLOCKERS CORNER (2) is another taking a step back in grade, and with blinkers applied for the first time, he is also not without a chance.

18:00 - MR STRUTTER (1) failed to follow up his Wolverhampton win when sixth at the same course on his penultimate start, but he shaped as if straight back in form back on turf at Doncaster last time, coming home first in his group on the near-side, getting little cover from the wind a result of sticking to that part of the course. He is a three-time winner at this venue and holds good claims of adding to that record.

18:30 - Quite an expensive purchase, SCIENCE (6) showed plenty of ability when just edged out on debut last month, and though he was unable to trouble the principles in the Coventry at Royal Ascot on his latest outing, this return to calmer waters looks a good opportunity for him to open his account.

19:00 - LINCOLN GAMBLE (5) shaped well making his handicap debut after eight months off at Doncaster earlier this month, doing the best of those that raced towards the far side and making his opening mark look exploitable. He is the only runner in this field with the Timeform "small p" - which denoted potential for improvement - attached to him, so he is clearly one to be positive about on just his second attempt in handicap company.

19:30 - NORTHERN CHARM (6) is bred to be pretty speedy and, knowing her job, showed plenty of that when third at this venue on debut earlier this month, shaping clear second best for most of the way. This step back to the minimum trip should suit her on that evidence, and with further progress anticipated, she rates high on the shortlist.

20:00 - INDIAN SOUNDS (8) confirmed the promise he had shown previously when regaining the winning thread at Bath last month, doing well under the circumstances after being caught further back than ideal, and he followed up from a 6 lb higher mark at the same venue earlier this month, a strong pace suiting him and his stamina for further really kicking in late on. He is up another 5 lb for that victory but is clearly thriving at present and is difficult to oppose.

20:30 - A three-time winner over this course and distance, BE PERFECT (2), with a reappearance run under his belt, returned to form when runner-up here earlier this month. He won here from 1 lb higher last year and, on the on the pick of his form, holds solid claims to add to his already enviable record at this venue.
