"...ran well on his only other start here in a similar event under Simon Walker"

Timeform on Attain

17:35 - ATTAIN (3) isn't handicapped out of things and ran well on his only other start here in a similar event under Simon Walker. He could be the answer in what looks an open affair. Becca Campbell and Party Royal are a couple of others to consider.

18:10 - LEGENDS OF WAR (2) had an interrupted preparation ahead of the July Stakes when finishing well held but has to be given another chance based on his scintillating Breeze-Up display and debut win at Yarmouth. Shorter Skirt won't make it easy though on the back of a very promising debut run at Kempton.

18:40 - TO THE MOON (10) could follow in the footsteps of her sister and make a successful debut for a yard that has had their fill of winning newcomers again this year. Khibrah is another who makes plenty of appeal on paper, while Star Terms surely has more to offer and looks the pick of those with experience.

19:15 - TAHREEK (3) made a smooth transition to handicapping with a ready victory at Nottingham last month, leaving the impression there was more to come yet. He is fancied to follow up. Dive For Gold is still unexposed and rates the main danger, whilst course-winner Sergio Leone is also respected.

19:45 - LEADING SPIRIT (3) has shown solid form in his three starts to date and he looks fairly treated on his first attempt in nurseries and can take advantage. Double Quick is possibly open to the most improvement and can chase the selection home.

20:20 - DREAMBOAT ANNIE (6) was galvanised by the application of headgear when comfortably landing a Leicester handicap last week and is able to race off the same mark here. She holds sound claims of following up. Power To Exceed and Goodnight Girl look the likeliest dangers.

20:50 -HE'S OUR STAR (8) found improvement when scoring here last month and the handicapper has only raised him 3 lb for that game success. He could be the answer to a tricky-looking finale. Ragstone View and Lucky Louie are other key players.
