"The Otmoor Poet was something of an eye-catcher having his third start in maidens at Brighton last month..."

13:50 - Despite crossing the line first at Wolverhampton last time, Woodukheleyfit gets another crack at maiden company having been subsequently thrown out for his waywardness late on. If he's in the same form and runs straight he should make amends, unless Geophony makes marked improvement or one of the newcomers, such as Let's Be Happy, proves to be above average.

14:20 - Salieri is the only one with form to be positive in a weak maiden, with most of the others either limited or becoming exposed. He should be able to get off the mark on the back of his encouraging debut at Wolverhampton provided neither Gravity Wave or Makkdadangdang prove to be above average on their debuts.

14:50 - Tigserin was probably an unlucky loser at Kempton last month having surrendered ground at the start, and with her record on the AW a positive one, she is preferred to Hellfire, who will have her supporters on the back of a victory at Windsor. Of the rest, Lajatico has hinted at better to come on more than one occasion.

15:20 - Eva Gore tasted success over the minimum trip last time and can follow up over the extra 1f. Turanga Leela just about sets the standard on her early form, but is in danger of going the wrong way.

15:50 - Frivolous Prince, who was a winner on turf here last month, showed he's still on a workable mark when fourth at Salisbury since and gets the nod in a tight affair. Recent course scorer Lily Edge should give it another good shot, along with Dalavind who has been runner-up at selling/claiming level on his last two starts, while the money for Britannia Boy is also interesting as he went well for a long way over a much longer trip last time.

16:20 - Excellent Sounds caught the eye when runner-up in a Doncaster maiden two weeks ago and she's open to further progress now handicapping. Dunnscotia and Star of The Stage head the dangers.

16:50 - Quality Art did best of those held up when fifth on turf at Windsor last month and, having fallen 6 lb below his last winning mark, he could be worth chancing to put it all together. Pharoh Jake and Brighton scorer Our Lord are feared most, though market support for Temple Road would need to be viewed positively.

17:20 - The Otmoor Poet was something of an eye-catcher having his third start in maidens at Brighton last month, doing some good late work at the finish. He's one to note now handicapping and gets the nod, albeit in a competitive 3-y-o event. Maroc who was third at Windsor recently and Sky of Stars are others to consider.
