"He was beaten only by a potentially smart sort that day and he should have more to offer..."

12:55 - SUMMER THUNDER (1) was backed as though defeat was out of the question on her recent return at Kempton and, though she failed to win, she did put up a clear career best, and is hard to look past here. She has been risen 2 lb in the weights for that effort, but this doesn't look the strongest handicap, and first-time cheekpieces could eke out a bit more.

13:25 - Nicola Currie has been in the headlines recently and she could get yet another winner on board INUK (4) this afternoon. He is proving consistent and is in the best form of his career at present, running creditably back in a handicap at Kempton last time, and the drop back to five furlongs shouldn't hinder him. It's also worth noting that Currie has been on board for both of his career wins.

14:00 - It's no surprise to see MISS MINUTY (2) at the head of the market this morning given she is chasing a hat-trick of C&D wins and, despite having been risen 4 lb in the weights for her last win, she remains with handicapping scope based on her old form. She did well under the circumstances last time, showing a good turn of foot to come from the rear to win by one and a quarter lengths. Miss Minuty is clearly in fine fetter and should make a bold bid to complete a hat-trick.

14:30 - Udontdodou is building a fantastic record at Chelmsford, progressing again to win there from a 4 lb lower mark last time, and he deserves to be at the head of the market. This is a sharper track, though, and others make more appeal at the prices in what looks a cracking sprint handicap. KASBAH (6) goes well round here and was only narrowly denied over this C&D last time, and he looks well up to winning races from this mark. He has the visor back on today, is breaking from the plum draw in stall one, and is fancied to resume winning ways.

15:05 - Joseph Tuite has his string in fine order at present and his CONKERING HERO (3) makes a fair bit of appeal under Oisin Murphy. He bounced back to his best form in a first-time visor last time and, providing the headgear has the same effect now, he looks the way to go back up in trip. Last-time-out winner Ban Shoof may prove the biggest danger.

15:40 - Hard to get away from the claims of NATIVE APPEAL (1) who opened his account at Kempton last month and improved further when finishing third in first-time cheekpieces at Newcastle last time. He was beaten only by a potentially smart sort that day and he should have more to offer. Cross Swords is an interesting newcomer on paper and should be monitored in the market.
