Timeform take you through the card at Leicester on Wednesday evening.


17:45 - A tricky start. CARLOVIAN (10) arrives here in better form than some, however, having won on his second start for this yard last time at Catterick. A 2 lb rise in the weights may not stop him doubling up, and he did seem to run to form on soft ground at Carlisle last season for his former handler. DANOT (7) is not easy to win with but his last victory came on soft ground, and he will have place claims if running to his best here.

18:15 - Scarlet Thrush is probably the one to beat here if at her best, but she has been very disappointing on her last couple of starts and alarm bells must be ringing now she is dropping into this company. TENBY TWO (6) has a more solid profile coming into this race, and though this trip may well be on the sharp side for him, he still makes most appeal.

18:45 - This represents a drop in grade for WILLIAM HUNTER (4), who has been set some stiff tasks this season in the likes of the Rosebery Handicap at Kempton. He wasn't really seen to best effect at Ascot last time (given plenty to do), and is probably still on an interesting mark, so looks worth chancing.

19:20 - It's hard to try and pick holes in favourite PURSUING STEED (8) here, with a 6 lb rise for his win at Newbury last time (completed a hat-trick) looking fine given he had a subsequent winner back in second that day. He's clearly thriving at present and the stiff finish here should be right up his street (looks like he'll stay a mile).

19:50 - The newcomers don't look much here and this looks a guilt-edged opportunity for INDIAN RAJ (1) to get off the mark at the second time of asking, with his biggest rival on form, Tawaafoq, having had plenty of goes in maidens already.

20:20 - A few of these ran well last time out, but PERCYS PRINCESS (3) has thrived since being united with Jane Elliott (winning three of her last six starts) and, still well treated on her old form after a 2 lb rise for her last win at Doncaster, she looks a solid Placepot option.

20:50 - Canadian Royal is the obvious one, a few lb well-in for his second at Yarmouth last week, but Deciding Vote could be the interesting one at the prices. Her full-sister Intense Pink was a listed winner with cut in the ground and she showed a bit at Doncaster on her final maiden start.


Win back WILLIAM HUNTER in the 18:45 at Leicester

17:45 - 7, 10
