14:20 - JOEY'S DESTINY (7) is completely unexposed on the all-weather and ran well despite shaping as though in need of a stronger gallop when second at Kempton last time. He should get a better gallop to aim at here (Alejandro and Captain Dion are usually front runners) and it is not a surprise to see him attracting support this morning. RUSSIAN SOUL (2) is another who needs things to drop right, but had been shaped well from this sort of mark when trained in Ireland, and is also worth including for Placepot purposes for the in-form Jamie Osborne yard.

14:50 - BERLUSCA (7) has won seven times at this track during his career and provided they go hard enough up front, he should be involved (this will suit better than Chelmsford did last time). The unexposed one is EVERY CHANCE (1), who has an absence to overcome, but has strong claims if building on his maiden win here when he was last seen.

15:20 - This isn't a strong affair and looks like a good opportunity for BLUE BAHIA (9), who bounced back to her best when back down in trip (over this C&D) last time from the front. She was clear with the winner that day, and sets the standard on form based on that.

15:50 - PUSHKIN MUSEUM (3) has done better with each of his starts since switching stables, and resumed winning ways with plenty to spare at Wolverhampton last time. He remains with plenty of handicapping scope from 6 lb higher based on his old form (won off 14 lb higher in the past) and looks set to go close to landing a double.

16:20 - JACK THE LAIRD (3) had burnt a few fingers in his time but has dropped to a workable mark on the balance of his form, and should go close now contesting the lowest grade of race that he has contested since he last won.

16:50 - Gabrial The Terror is easy to oppose these days, and COME BACK KING (2) and BLUE TOP (6) are preferred. The former will be hard to beat if transferring his fibresand form to the tapeta, while Blue Top did well last time to finish third over C&D after not being ideally placed.

17:20 - Secret Bird is more consistent that most at this sort of level, which counts for plenty, but Powerful Dream could be worth chancing now back down to the grade of her last win (which came from 2 lb higher in the weights). She had shown improved form since then, too, without managing to win, but considering the favourite is up in the weights for a second-placed effort last time, she looks worth backing.

17:50 - Tricky stuff. Canford Belle hasn't won for some time, but has been running well enough on the tapeta up at Newcastle recently and has a better chance than some here.

Recommendation:

Win back Powerful Dream in the 17:20

Placepot permutation:

14:20 - 2, 7
14:50 - 1, 7
15:20 - 9
15:50 - 3
16:20 - 3
16:50 - 2, 6
