Timeform on Storm Ahead

1.50 eventmasters.co.uk Apprentice Handicap (4) 7f

Timeform Top Rated
99 8. TWIN APPEAL Karen Tutty Gemma Tutty
98 4. STORM AHEAD Tim Easterby Robert Dodsworth (5)
97 20. ROUND THE ISLAND Richard Whitaker Lewis Edmunds

Analyst's Verdict:
Storm Ahead has dropped to a handy mark and ran well in first-time blinkers when second at Thirsk last month. In the hope the headgear has the desired effect once more, he is fancied to make a bold bid with his rider able to claim a valuable 5 lb. Pickett's Charge, Twin Appeal and Round The Island can also feature in a typically competitive affair.

2.20 Hanson Springs Handicap (3) 1¼m56y

Timeform Top Rated
105 2. THOMAS CRANMER Tina Jackson Nathan Evans
104 16. RED CHARMER Marjorie Fife Megan Nicholls (5)
103 10. ANDOK Richard Fahey Jack Garritty

Analyst's Verdict:
Give It Some Teddy took another step forward when winning at Ripon a fortnight ago and is capable of a big run again back up in trip. Francis Xavier has to be of interest on his first start for a new yard in cracking form, while Addis Ababa and Rock Force are a couple of others to note.

2.55 Ryedale House Garrowby Stakes (Listed) (1) 6f

Timeform Top Rated
131 2. LIMATO Henry Candy Harry Bentley
127 5. STORMBRINGER Kevin Ryan Martin Harley
126 4. TROPICS Dean Ivory Robert Winston

Analyst's Verdict:
Limato belatedly confirmed that he retains most of his ability when back to winning ways dipped into listed company at Newmarket a fortnight ago, and kept to that level, he will take some stopping. Stormbringer graduates from handicaps, and given his unexposed profile, may offer the selection most to think about.

3.25 Judith Marshall Memorial British EBF Stallions Novice Stakes (Sire And Dam-Restricted) (3) 7f

Timeform Top Rated
97 10. SAPA INCA Mark Johnston Franny Norton
95 1. VENTURA OCEAN Richard Fahey Paul Hanagan
80p 5. JOE THE BEAU Michael Easterby Nathan Evans

Analyst's Verdict:
Ventura Ocean was far from disgraced in the Acomb over C&D last month and can defy a penalty dropping markedly in class. Sapa Inca looks capable of winning an event off this type, while Woven shaped very well on debut at Newcastle.

4.00 Little Green Rascals Children's Nurseries Handicap (4) 2m56y

Timeform Top Rated
91 3. ARROWTOWN Michael Easterby Cam Hardie
90 15. THE KNOT IS TIED Tim Easterby James Sullivan
89 13. BUYER BEWARE Lawrence Mullaney David Allan

Analyst's Verdict:
This is clearly a tougher race than the one The Knot Is Tied won at Thirsk last week, but he's a progressive young stayer and remains one to keep onside. Dazzling Rock, Rubenesque and Arrowtown all merit consideration in a competitive staying handicap.

4.30 Sha. Intelligent Ideas That Get Results British EBF Novice Stakes (3) 5f89y

Timeform Top Rated
101 4. MUTAWAFFER Charles Hills Jim Crowley
99 1. BROKEN SPEAR Tony Coyle Barry McHugh
95 5. LITTLE LEGS Brian Ellison Callum Rodriguez (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Mutawaffer might have found the going too testing when failing to land the odds at Sandown but is worth another chance with this track likely to suit. Broken Spear and Little Legs are feared most.

5.00 Coopers Marquees Handicap (3) 6f

Timeform Top Rated
112 1. ROUNDHAY PARK Nigel Tinkler Lewis Edmunds
111 5. CAPTAIN JAMESON John Quinn Jason Watson (3)
110 12. AIRGLOW Michael Easterby Nathan Evans

Analyst's Verdict:
Roundhay Park's runner-up effort at Ascot last month is very strong form in the context of this race, and back over 6f, he can confirm himself to be ahead of his mark. This, as you would expect for a 3-y-o sprint handicap, is competitive, with Shaheen and Wahoo heading the opposition.
