Timeform on Doubled Over

#1 LAPTOP WIZARD - Flamingo Park R2 (10:50 GMT)

LAPTOP WIZARD failed to meet market expectations when third on his most recent outing at Turffontein, but he didn't do much wrong and could be worth another chance on his first start for a new yard. Royal Delight is taken to chase the selection home, while Utopian should go well, too.

#1 DOUBLED OVER - Flamingo Park R4 (11:50 GMT)

DOUBLED OVER has proved costly to follow so far, but she is the clear form pick here and will find few better opportunities than this to belatedly get off the mark. Seraphic is the most realistic option for second, while Fleur Du Cap is the tentative selection for third.

#8 ROYAL STAG - Flamingo Park R8 (13:55 GMT)

ROYAL STAG has fewer question marks about him than the others, having demonstrated his wellbeing with a good second here last time, and he could be the way to go from the same mark. Miesque's Speed is given the vote for second, while Red Hot Russian is another to consider.
