"...she should be able to complete the hat-trick..."

14:20 - WORLD OF GOOD (5) made the perfect start for Olly Murphy when winning in good style at Wolverhampton last month and is taken to follow up here. She remains on a good mark on the pick of her form following a 3 lb rise and has plenty in her favour. Caledonia Laird may pose the biggest threat. He has slipped in the weights and is one to keep an eye on from this sort of mark.

14:50 - A tight handicap but MERDON CASTLE (3) looks interesting starting out for Ivan Furtado and is worth chancing. He is potentially very well treated, now 15 lb below his last winning mark, and his new trainer has already proven his is adept with new recruits. Critical Thinking has been strong in the market this morning and is feared most.

15:25 - Hard to get away from the claims of CLIFFS OF DOVER (8) who made a winning return to the Flat over this C&D 12 days ago. A subsequent 7 lb rise in the weights still leaves him well treated based on his useful hurdling form, and he holds leading claims of supplementing that success. Age of Wisdom has gone well off higher marks in the past so remains of interest, while Rosa Damascena isn't handicapped out of things returning to this sphere judged on her Chelmsford maiden win a year ago.

15:55 - BEAUTIFUL MEMORY (1) made is two wins in succession at Chelmsford when winning a mile and a quarter minor event last month and, judged on the manner of that success, she should be able to complete the hat-trick. Sportswriter and Caspar The Cub both look promising also and are strongly respected.

16:25 - SEA SHACK (7) was holding his own in some useful handicaps last summer and looks the way to go on the return from six months off. He is on a fair mark judged on the pick of his form, and the booking of Silvestre De Sousa bodes well on his return representing a yard that has saddled two winners from their last three runners. Sayesse should continue to give a good account now he's back in the groove, while Pour La Victoire is going through a good spell so has to be respected.

16:55 - MINIATURE DAFFODIL (6) dug deep under pressure to get off the mark at Chelmsford last week. He remains lightly raced, so a 4 lb rise may not prevent him from following up. Solid Man is worth another chance back on polytrack, while Dorian Gray isn't one to give up on just yet.

17:25 - HALLINGHAM (5) unquestionably comes with risks given his profile, but he would be a big threat from this sort of mark if putting his best foot forward, and receives a tentative vote under leading amateur jockey Simon Walker. Ormskirk and Relevant a couple of potential threats.
