Timeform on Hartleyfive

HARTLEYFIVE - Vaal R1, 10:10 GMT

HARTLEYFIVE just about gets the nod in this company and should give backers a good run for their money. She shaped well when three lengths second to Blonde Vision over C&D on debut and should win this with any improvement. Kindavar might be the answer to second spot, while Mrs Simpson shouldn't be far away either seeing a racecourse for the first time.

BLANCO - Vaal R2, 10:40 GMT

The Goeff Woodruff-trainedBLANCO headed the market on his latest run, but is worth giving another chance to leave that form behind, for all he wasn't beaten far (two lengths) in fifth. Smart Deal is the most pragmatic second option, while Festive Linngari is another to bear in mind.

SHEZAHOTTI - Vaal R3, 11:10 GMT

SHEZAHOTTI failed to justify market support on her most recent run, but still appeals as the most obvious winner here. She's still a maiden, but has made the frame on five of her last six starts, and the slightly longer trip here should suit. Sea Venture looks the likeliest runner-up, while Perfect Storm also commands consideration.
