Timeform on Cherry Road

#9 PUTCHINI - Greyville R5 (14:05 BST)

PUTCHINI looks to have narrowly the best claims in an open race, a three-time C&D winner who went down only narrowly over seven furlongs here last time. Bestday of Mylife is not out of it where the places are concerned, and nor is Great Dictator.

#8 CHERRY ROAD - Greyville R6 (14:40 BST)

A maiden winner at Scottsville last time, CHERRY ROAD starts out on handicaps on a potentially lenient mark and is a straightforward selection. Keep It Real gets the nod among the remainder, while Elnora is another with the potential to be on the premises.

#1 ACADEMY AWARD - Greyville R8 (15:50 BST)

ACADEMY AWARD's recent efforts have had a lot to like about them and he just about gets the nod in this company. Cavalieri seems the primary threat, while Twice Golden is also worth a second look.
