"Quality Song was eye-catching in the finish over 12 furlongs here last time, and looked an unlucky loser having been unable to reel in a well-ridden winner."

14:00- Hussar Ballad has been well-backed in the opening amateur's contest with Serena Brotherton on board, but may have it all to do if held up from the widest draw in a race where there few are expected to go forward. The same may apply to Collodi, who is often slowly into stride, and it may well be worth chancing Noguchi for the places, who - with stamina for further than this - may well be hard to catch if able to get the lead. Captain Felix has a patchy profile but is also one of the more likely under a top amateur rider.

14:30- Troopingthecolour is well clear of his rivals here after some respectable displays in handicaps over the summer, and should be hard to beat if running to form, with his nearest rival Jamhoori being hard to catch right.

15:05- Quality Song was eye-catching in the finish over 12 furlongs here last time, and looked an unlucky loser having been unable to reel in a well-ridden winner. Although he was obviously strong at the finish last time, he is not guaranteed to stay this far based on his pedigree, and is probably one to take on at the prices with that in mind. There are no obvious ones to take the favourite on with, however, with last-time-out winner With Hindsight unlikely to get an easy lead with the presence of Angus Glens, and Next Edition is a tentative selection at the prices, after seemingly turning a corner last time when second over C&D.

15:35- Khismet looked a likely winner here, and her defection has really opened this race up. Q Ten Girl is respected after posting a career-best effort at this level last time at this track, but Like No Other - who has progressed with all three of her starts in maidens, has the scope to improve past Q Ten Girl, and is probably the most interesting runner, though she will probably find her best form coming over further than this.

16:10- The market tells the story here in that the standard-setting pair of Every Chance and Van Dyke probably have the race between them, with none of the newcomers being particularly inspiring on paper. Of the two, Van Dyke has achieved slightly more on his two starts, and is the most likely winner.

16:40- Depth Charge sets the standard in this maiden, and although weak in the market on his first start since leaving Jeremy Noseda, is narrowly preferred to well-supported Viserion, who is open to improvement after three starts, but may find his best form coming in handicaps.

17:10- Hard to rule many of these out in the finale, including Cosmic Ray, who looked to be summed up by his mark when last seen on his final start for Andrew Balding, but is respected under Adam Kirby, who could get an easy enough lead on the front end and dictate proceedings. Hercullian Prince put in a career-best effort last time when narrowly beaten over C&D and is respected from 1lb above his last winning mark, whilst Robins Pearl is also interesting on her first start for Harry Dunlop, after leaving Olly Stevens with her progressive profile in tact.
