Timeform on Nahaarr

13:50 - REWAAYAT (2) returned to form after 10 months off when landing the odds at Lingfield in June, and he built on that to follow up in good style at Salisbury last month, running out a seven-and-a-half-length winner. He has returned a more mature model as a five-year-old, fully justifying connections' decision to stick with him, and a 12 lb rise in the weights might not be enough to stop him going in again.

14:25 - LAAFY (3) put it all together in the style of one who'll hold his own in some of the leading middle-distance handicaps this season when regaining the winning thread at Newbury on reappearance, and he improved further to finish runner-up in the Old Newton Cup at Haydock last time. A gelding operation prior to this season is clearly doing him the world of good and he still looks to be on a handy mark.

15:00 - ENBIHAAR (2) landed a hat-trick of victories last season, including this race, making up for lost time given she didn't make it onto the racecourse until the autumn of her three-year-old campaign, and she made an encouraging return over 12 furlongs at Newmarket last month, a trip that looked on the short side for her. She should be sharper for that run and a bold showing is expected now back up in trip.

15:35 - NAHAARR (8) improved further to resume winning ways at Newbury last month, winning with plenty in hand after sprinting clear inside the final furlong. He looks set to make up into a smart sprinter and appeals as a worth favourite despite a 7 lb rise in the weights for his recent victory.

16:10 - SOCIETY LION (8) won a Yarmouth novice in the mud in the autumn and has showed even better form in defeat in a couple of good three-year-old handicaps this term. He shaped really well when a neck second at Doncaster last time, impressing most with his change of pace to come from last to first, even then seen off only by an even more unexposed rival. He still looks well ahead of his mark despite a 5 lb rise and should be capable of going one better here.

16:40 - TITIAN (11) shaped with plenty of encouragement when fourth on debut at Newmarket last month, in need of the experience but really getting the hand of things under a considerate ride late on. He is open to significant improvement and might well have enough to land this before moving on to bigger things.

17:10 - EXEC CHEF (7) wasn't disgraced on either start in June, needing more than the mile trip on both occasions, and this could be a good opportunity for him to belatedly regain the winning thread. He looks to be on a handy mark on the pick of last season's form, and the switch to George Scott's yard may well have perked him up, so he is expected to be bang there.
