Timeform on Ubettabelieveit

16:20 - INDIAN RAJ (7) won over this course and distance last July, and though he hasn't strictly been in top form since, he did produce his best effort since that victory when runner-up at Newmarket on his return to action last month. He needs to back that up now but has a good record under Oisin Murphy (won twice) and is clearly on a fair mark.

16:55 - MAGIC J (4) is unexposed in sprinting terms and shaped nicely when runner-up at Wolverhampton two weeks ago, producing his best effort to date but just failing to get the job done. He is becoming a bit expensive to follow but is plainly good enough to win from this sort of mark, and with the application of first-time cheekpieces potentially able to eke out the extra required, he makes the most appeal.

17:25 - UBETTABELIEVEIT (4) improved no end for his debut run and looked a good prospect in opening his account in style at Doncaster last month, still leaving the impression he was learning on the job to some extent too. He was impressive in full flow late on, and with that effort backed up by the clock, he is taken to find further improvement and progress past Eye Of Heaven.

18:00 - JAZZI'O (3) was very green and rushed off her feet on debut at Windsor last month, but she stayed on well into third without being unduly punished. She should be sharper now, and with the step up in trip likely to suit, she may be able to find the improvement required to open her account at the second time of asking.

18:30 - KNIGHT SALUTE (3) made a most promising start to his career when runner-up at Wolverhampton earlier this month, conceding experience and the run of the race to one who had the speed to finish fourth in the Coventry. He pulled clear of the remainder however, and looks sure to progress and win races.

19:00 - PARIKARMA (2) surpassed her winning juvenile form when finding only one who has returned a different proposition this year too good at Doncaster 11 days ago. She pulled nicely clear of the rest however, and is a massive player here from the same mark.

19:30 - LIFE MATTERS (9) didn't show an awful lot to work with on his first three career outings, but switched to handicap company, and up in trip, he produced a career-best effort to finish runner-up at Kempton last month. The third and fourth from that race have both come out and won subsequently so Richard Hughes's charge makes plenty of appeal on his turf debut.

20:00 - MASTER MILLINER (11) showed improved form and shaped well when second at Kempton on his handicap debut back in October, perhaps even unlucky not to win after being denied a clear run when making headway over two furlongs out. There should be plenty more to come from him, particularly over this sort of trip, and with Emma Lavelle having sent out a few winners over jumps recently, he looks worth chancing on his return to action.
