2.10 British & Irish Lions Betting At 188Bet Novice Stakes (4) 6f

Analyst's Verdict:
The clear pick is Dichato, who looked far sharper than on debut when a strong-finishing third over C&D earlier this month. That form could turn out to be pretty decent (the winner holds fancy entries) and he is open to further improvement. Nicklaus looks the part on paper and is feared most ahead of Ragstone View, who showed promise on debut at Salisbury, and Musselburgh-winner Roland Rocks.

2.40 Wimbledon Tennis Betting At 188Bet Handicap (5) 1½m

Analyst's Verdict:
The fitting of cheekpieces sparked an improved display from Chocolate Box at Newbury where he finished well to claim second after encountering traffic problems. Assuming the headgear works as well second time round, he may well go one better with Ryan Moore aboard. Theglasgowwarrior is the clear main danger following his solid handicap debut at Salisbury. Mistress Quickly is best of the rest.

3.15 188Bet Handicap (4) 6f

Analyst's Verdict:
Despite being denied a clear run at a crucial stage, Hart Stopper scored with a bit left up his sleeve at Windsor and is taken to follow up here. Mutoondresdashorse may well benefit from this drop back to 6f and, still unexposed, he is next on the list. Sword Exceed and Lady In Question are live each-way candidates.

3.50 188Bet.co.uk Maiden Stakes (5) 7f

Analyst's Verdict:
Saluti and Muhajjal both showed plenty of ability in 2-y-o maidens and can fight out the finish. Preference is for the former, who arguably possesses the greater scope for improvement. Likelylooking newcomer Raawy is one to monitor closely in the betting.

4.25 Read Silvestre de Sousa At 188Bet Handicap (2) 7f

Analyst's Verdict:
It's fair to say that Professor is a shadow of the horse he once was, but he posted his best effort in a while at Goodwood and a reproduction of that would give him every chance. Makzeem will be a threat if bouncing back from a below-par effort at Sandown and is feared most ahead of Shady McCoy.

5.00 Daily Racing Specials At 188Bet Handicap (4) 1m

Analyst's Verdict:
The form of Surrey Hope's AW maiden victory has worked out well and he looked one to keep on the right side when following up on handicap bow at Sandown. A 4 lb rise for that looks very fair and, with further improvement a distinct possibility, the hat-trick beckons. Rigoletto is a much-respected main danger off what could turn out to be a handy opening mark and Daira Prince has to be feared, too.

5.35 Free Spins At 188Bet Casino Handicap (4) 5f

Analyst's Verdict:
This represents a drop in class for the likeable Poet's Society, who put in a mighty good shift in a hot 3-y-o handicap at York recently and will take some stopping off the same mark here. Tahoo is marginally preferred to Excellent George and Compas Scoobie for forecast purposes.
