"...she's fancied to make a winning start for her top connections."

Timeform on Heavenly Bliss

14:00 - Whilst HEAVENLY BLISS (1) is conceding experience to half of the field, she makes plenty of appeal on paper (half-sister to the very smart Firmament), and considering that Sepahi only sets a solid standard, she's fancied to make a winning start for her top connections. The aforementioned Sepahi and fellow newcomer Poetry head the dangers.

14:30 - BEAUVAIS (1) looked a good prospect when making a winning start at Ripon last month, knuckling down well for a newcomer and seeing off two with more experience, and he is fancied to follow up. The form of the Cheshire Oaks is working out well and Hazarfiya, sixth in that race, is likely to pose a big threat.

15:00 - DR RICHARD KIMBLE (5) is a likeable and progressive 3-y-o whose prominent racing style should lend itself to this track, so he boasts outstanding claims of gaining his third success of the campaign in receipt of a generous weight-for-age allowance from his main rivals Rainbow Rebel and Cote d'Azur, who are both considered.

15:30 - CRIBBS CAUSEWAY (5) clearly wasn't 100% on the day in a Group 3 at Haydock 2 weeks ago but she was most progressive prior to that and is worth another chance. Titi Makfi is a big player despite her penalty, while Alwaysandforever is a lightly-raced and improving filly.

16:00 - BECKY THE THATCHER (8) is going the right way at the moment, quickly doubling her tally here last time, and she looks up to completing the hat-trick. Graceful Lady should give another good account, with Frederic respected on the pick of his form.

16:30 - CROTCHET (2) got her career firmly back on track when a close second over C&D a couple of weeks ago and has the potential to build upon that now. Excellent Times is another who was only narrowly denied last time and can give Richard Fahey's charge most to think about.

17:00 - A big run is on the cards from ROUND THE ISLAND (9), a C&D winner who has dropped a tad more in the weights despite a good effort here a fortnight ago. Araqeel wasn't far behind the selection on that occasion and looks set to be winning again soon. Bibbidibobbidiboo can't be ignored in her hat-trick bid.
