"There is more to come from Ed Walker’s three-year-old and another big run is expected..."

Timeform on Glorious Caesar

17:40 - DRAGON SUN (1) was much improved when pitched into handicaps last season, landing his first two starts in that sphere before running creditably in a couple of decent races at Yarmouth and Chelmsford. He was ultimately no match for the winner on his latest run, but still did well to fare the best of rest from a less-than-ideal position, and he still looks well treated here if returning from a nine-month absence in good heart.

18:10 - CLEM A (3) landed successive victories over this course and distance in December and January before running just as well, if not better, when chasing home a couple of subsequent winners at Newcastle last time. He is two from two over this track and trip and looks well placed to enhance that record for his new trainer Joseph Parr.

18:40 - GLORIOUS CAESAR (1) ran a cracker at Lingfield last time, overcoming a slow start and trouble in-running to get his head in front against a field of potential improvers. He only won by a short head, but he was probably value for more than that given his less-than-ideal trip, making a 4 lb rise look somewhat lenient. There is more to come from Ed Walker's three-year-old and another big run is expected here.

19:10 - Half-sister to Mootasadir and Dubai Warrior, MOOHAREEBA (7) makes plenty of appeal on paper on her debut, and hailing from John Gosden's yard only enhances her reputation. The Invincible Spirit filly is in receipt of a 5 lb sex allowance here and could prove too strong for Dark Scimitar, who lost out by a neck over this course and distance last time and looks the best of those with prior experience.

19:40 - ROCKETEER (4) wasn't given a mark after his third run, forcing him to run in another minor event at Lingfield last time, but that may have been a blessing in disguise as he turned in a much-improved performance to finish an excellent second. There is every chance that the assessor has been somewhat lenient with his opening mark on the back of that, and he looks a major player here on his handicap debut.

20:10 - Purchased for 45,000 guineas as a yearling, EFFRONTE (1) could be worth siding with on his debut. He is a half-brother to 6f winner Woomera and 5f winner Lathom, so is certainly bred for speed, and with claimer Darragh Keenan alleviating him of 3 lb, all looks set fair for a bold showing.
