Timeform on Mayne

14:00 - Come on Girl heads the market for Tony Carroll but was beaten a head last time and a 5 lb rise for that performance makes her vulnerable. POSITIVE LIGHT (4) makes appeal for Sir Mark Prescott having showed ability on her latest start at Brighton. She was given a very aggressive ride that day but was only beaten four and a half lengths, with the drop back in trip looking to be in her favour. She's from a speedy family and has room for improvement now handicapping over this trip. Pearl Stream upped in trip is also of interest given the strength of her minor event form at Ayr last time out.

14:30 - OVERPRICED MIXER (6) heads the market and looks the only one in this field that has shown ability suggesting that he can win a race. His latest second at Chepstow rates as good form when only beaten a head by a horse that has since finished second in handicap company. A reproduction of that effort makes him clearly the one to beat and unless Opine for Michael Bell runs to a good level on debut, nothing else in here should be good enough to challenge him.

15:00 - The morning market has been informative for division one of this minor contest, with Loving Glance being a clear favourite before but is now being challenged by ALBADR (2). John Gosden's charge is having his second start after shaping with promise at Newmarket on debut. He has been gelded since then and now dropped in trip and now on the all-weather, he looks capable of bettering that performance. Shark is another of interest as he was last seen behind the Group placed Turjomaan at Newcastle on debut and given his price tag, should be capable of better.

15:30 - The second division of this minor event looks to be between the top two in the market again, with preference for MAYNE (5) off the back of a promising performance at Chelmsford. He was left not ideally placed but still shaped with plenty of encouragement to finish a close-up sixth, with three ahead of him already having come out and won again since. He promised to be suited by a step up to a mile and gets that here, so he can take this contest from Magical Rhythms, who has improved with every start for John Gosden and is bred to cope with the switch to this surface.

16:00 - KENDERGARTEN KOP (3) has been in excellent form of late and takes on a field where that can't be said for most. He tops our weight adjusted ratings off the back of a tough win at Lingfield when given cheekpieces for the first time. He saw the trip out well enough that day to suggest he can still hold his form at this trip and being a previous course winner, he has plenty in his favour. David Probert gets on well with him and he looks set for another strong performance. Cashel is a C&D winner and makes most appeal of the rest.

16:30 - Despite returning from a six month lay-off, LETHAL LUNCH (1) is very much a horse to be interested in on his return with Clive Cox is hot form. He was last seen over this C&D when looking for all the worth he would come through and record another success off a similar lay off, only to be collared late as the surface was riding slow. He traded at 1.10 in-running that day and looks one to be on the right side of. Chica De La Noche loves this C&D and rates as the main threat, ahead of Assimilation on his return to the all-weather.

17:05 - TYPHOON TEN (7) was a neck behind the useful Aplomb on his latest start and a reproduction of that effort would make this colt the one to beat. He won a minor event over C&D on his debut from a subsequently useful sort and having only had the three starts in handicap company, he looks capable of defying his mark of 81. Lady Dancealot also makes appeal given his unlucky run last time out at Newmarket when having to wait for a run around two furlongs out. He rates as the main threat.

17:40 - Wanaasah rightly heads the market in the last after her visually impressive performance last time out at Wolverhampton but that came in a maiden handicap where she had the run of the race and may have been flattered by the winning margin. Her form before that had been poor and with her not the most consistent, she can be taken on. SIR PRIZE (1) looks the one to be with after a string of good efforts at Kempton when last seen sixth months ago. He has taken a liking to the surface and was marked as a horse in focus when finishing fourth in a slowly run race, doing the best of those held up. If he can return at peak fitness, he can go well and pose a threat to the market leader.
