" taken to resume winning ways now 7 lb below his last winning mark..."

14:00 - MOTHER OF DRAGONS (2) may have been found a good race to dominate, and is taken to belatedly get off the mark for her yard that has enjoyed a fine winter on the all-weather. Vodka Pigeon could get back on track and is respected, while the gamble on Expediate last time shouldn't be forgotten about ahead of his handicap bow here.

14:35 - This looks a useful novice even and any market support for the well-bred newcomer Wind Storm should be noted, but the feeling is NIGHT CASTLE (1) will improve again and is fancied to defy a penalty. He left his debut form well behind when winning at Newcastle last time and looks a potentially smart prospect, so deserves to be a short price with William Buick in the saddle for the first time.

15:10 - MY TARGET (2) hasn't won for a while but his record round here is impressive and he is certainly on a competitive mark. Admittedly, he isn't getting any younger, but he has showed on several occasions this year he is still capable of near-smart form, and is taken to resume winning ways now 7 lb below his last winning mark. Chevallier is also in good form and shouldn't be overlooked.

15:45 -A MOMENTOFMADNESS (3) has a fantastic record on the all-weather, winning three of his four starts to date, including one over six furlongs at this course. He is well suited by the demands of this speedy track, and his record fresh further enhances his chances. Encore d'Or has been in fine form since returning from Dubai, and looks sure to make a bold bid to follow up his C&D win three weeks ago.

16:20 -A really weak handicap, so INUK (3) may well be rewarded for her consistency in 2018. Haveoneyerself has been out of form for a while now but this is the easiest race he's ever contested, so he could bounce back.

16:55 - SMILEY BAGEL (3) arrives at the peak of his powers, nabbed on the line when attempting back-to-back course wins last time, so he could be the way to go. He has been raised 4 lb in the weights for that effort but could again prove too strong for course specialist Attain, who was behind the selection that day, but has since gone in over C&D and is a definite threat, along with Mullarkey, who didn't get a clear run last time.
