"Is down to a career-low mark and this could be the day when he finally adds to his two-year-old debut success..."

16:40 - DALNESS EXPRESS (8) has shown more spark back at this trip with a tongue strap enlisted the last twice, latterly finishing a solid third over C&D. With his yard among the winners of late, this lightly-raced five-year-old is taken to open his account off a 1 lb lower mark. Monarch Maid is on a long losing run and Rapid Rise is still without a win following 20 attempts, but they both look dangerous nonetheless.

17:15 - ENDLESSLY (5) was well supported ahead of his debut at Newmarket in November, so it was disappointing he wasn't able to make a bigger impact. That said, connections were obviously expecting better, and it could be that he was just in need of that experience. It's interesting that he has been well supported again this morning and the hint should be taken, with likely much better to come following a three-month break.

17:45 - HOLY SHAMBLES (6) was clearly sharper with his debut under his belt and was encouragingly keeping on well at the finish when third over this C&D two weeks ago, so he gets a narrow vote with further improvement a possibility. Bobby Biscuit was an expensive two-year-old who showed promise on his debut during the autumn, and along with first-time-out winner Lawn Ranger, heads the dangers.

18:15 - ROSE TINTED SPIRIT (2) has the look of a potential improver now pitched into a handicap. Indeed, the Swiss Spirit colt gradually progressed in three starts at around six furlongs last year and this step up in trip will be very much in his favour. He gets the nod ahead of Far Dawn, who posted another solid effort in defeat at Southwell last time, and Corazon Espinado.

18:45 - While a case can be made for several of these, MAGIC MIRROR (10) and Happy Escape could be the pair to concentrate on. The latter scored over C&D on just her second start for this yard and remains unexposed. However, preference is for Magic Mirror, who was strong at the finish when third off this mark here last month, form which has been subsequently boosted. Madrinho is best of the rest.

19:15 - KING OF NEPAL (5) produced a career-best when striking at Wolverhampton on Boxing Day, his second start since being gelded. A 4 lb rise for that is hardly prohibitive and, with the possibility of better to come from this four-year-old, he is taken to follow up. The hat-trick seeking Spun Gold merits respect but the selection may have most to fear from Nezar, who is certainly capable off this sort of mark.

19:45 - Having served notice that his turn may be near when third over C&D last time, TOP BEAK (9) earns the vote. Michael Attwater's charge is down to a career-low mark and this could be the day when he finally adds to his two-year-old debut success. Speciality hasn't shaped at all badly in handful of runs for this yard and is feared most ahead of Boychick, who should be sharper following his recent run here.
