1.40 England v Belgium Specials At 188Bet Novice Auction Stakes (4) 6f

Timeform Top Rated:
89p 12. HAPPY ODYSSEY Amy Murphy Tom Marquand
83p 1. SOCIETY SHOCK Jamie Osborne Nicola Currie (3)
78 6. GUNFORHIRE Richard Hannon Ryan Moore

Analyst's Verdict:
Probably not all that strong a 2-y-o race for the track and Happy Odyssey is taken to open her account after making a bright start at Lingfield. Penalised Goodwood-winner Society Shock is a big player, while Strawberry Jack might be the pick of the newcomers.


2.10 England v Belgium Betting At 188Bet Handicap (5) 1½m

Timeform Top Rated:
87 8. HYANNA Eve Johnson Houghton Edward Greatrex
86 7. ROBINSON CRUSOE Richard Hannon Ryan Moore
84 1. STARLIGHT MYSTERY Mark Johnston Adam Kirby

Analyst's Verdict:
Hyanna bumped into a big improver and ran well herself starting out for her new yard at Sandown recently and seems sure to go close if building on that. Ashington is a big player with the step up in trip sure to suit, while Robinson Crusoe likely has a handicap in him also.


2.40 Enhanced World Cup Prices At 188Bet Handicap (4) 6f

Timeform Top Rated:
96 8. SPRING ROMANCE Dean Ivory Jack Duern (3)
93 1. ROCKIES SPIRIT Denis Quinn Andrea Atzeni
93 2. RED CYMBAL William Haggas James Doyle

Analyst's Verdict:
Spring Romance is a sprinter on the up and can defy another rise for a fifth win in 6 starts this year. Prevent caught the eye behind his rival at Lingfield last time and could have more to offer. Jupiter and Red Cymbal are both potential improvers on their comeback runs.


3.15 Download The App At 188Bet Maiden Stakes (5) (D.I) 7f

Timeform Top Rated:
96 3. RACING COUNTRY Saeed bin Suroor Edward Greatrex
79p 2. GLENGLADE Ismail Mohammed Sean Levey
68p 7. HATEEL William Haggas Dane O'Neill

Analyst's Verdict:
Glenglade ran well in a decent-looking contest at Haydock 3 weeks ago and looks sure to do even better. He can take this from Hateel, who seems sure to improve. Racing Country backers will need to be brave after 7 defeats and a very underwhelming end to his time in Dubai earlier this year, though Godolphin have stuck with him and he's been gelded.


3.50 Download The App At 188Bet Maiden Stakes (5) (D.II) 7f

Timeform Top Rated:
88p 3. RESTIVE SPIRIT William Haggas James Doyle
86p 7. CHOCO BOX Ed Vaughan Ryan Moore
68p 5. TAOISEACH Henry Candy Fran Berry

Analyst's Verdict:
Restive Spirit caught the eye first time up at Goodwood last month, left poorly placed but making good late headway under hands-and-heels riding. He seems sure to progress and is taken to land this. Choco Box is a big danger after her promising debut here, while Star Shield is a newcomer to note.


4.25 188Bet Mobile Bet10 Get20 Handicap (2) 7f

Timeform Top Rated:
109p 8. ON THE WARPATH Charlie Appleby William Buick
106 2. BURGUILLOS Stuart Williams James Doyle
105 1. ACES Ian Williams Ryan Moore

Analyst's Verdict:
Aces had a strong pace to suit last time, but he was well on top at the line and, having just his third outing for Ian Williams with Ryan Moore in the saddle, he looks to boast excellent claims of following up at the expense of On The Warpath who, although highly impressive at Southwell for Sir Mark Prescott the last twice, needs to prove himself on turf starting out for a new yard.


5.00 Club188 Exclusive Offers Handicap (4) 1m

Timeform Top Rated:
95 5. FAKE NEWS David Barron Fran Berry
94 8. BACACARAT Andrew Balding David Probert
93+ 4. PLANT POT POWER Richard Hughes Shane Kelly

Analyst's Verdict:
Mr Tyrrell is rather exposed and still a maiden, but few of the others appeal as being particularly ahead of the assessor. He has the benefit of Ryan Moore in the saddle with the potential for a soft lead at a track where such tactics are often favoured, so he gets a marginal vote ahead of Balgair and Bacacarat, who look like they could both improve a bit more.


5.30 Play Live Blackjack At 188Bet Casino Handicap (4) 5f

Timeform Top Rated:
98 7. JASHMA Richard Hughes Shane Kelly
97 4. DELAGATE THIS LORD Michael Attwater John Egan
96 2. ZAMJAR Robert Cowell James Doyle

Analyst's Verdict:
Delagate This Lord is less exposed than the bulk of this field, has been shaping well of late, and should be at an advantage under a positive ride, so he's a confident selection to land this weak affair, with Jashma a clear second choice having had a luckless run last time. Joegogo is considered, too.
