Timeform on Decima

DECIMA - Carlisle 13:40

The four-year-old filly DECIMA is yet to fire this season, but she struck from this mark at Beverley last year so could be worth chancing in a very winnable handicap. She's been sent off big prices in three starts this year but will be very interesting if there is any market support. Traditional Dancer and Iberica Road can make their presence felt at this level.

STUBYTUESDAY - Carlisle 14:10

STUBYTUESDAY was below form when last seen at Yarmouth in May, but he's been freshened up since. With a return to softer conditions likely to suit, and only 3 lb higher than his last win, he could prove to be the answer in a competitive handicap. Bollin Ted, Billy Bond and Dark Confidant all merit consideration in an open race.

SUPRESSSOR - Carlisle 14:40

Timeform 'Horse In Focus' SUPRESSSOR progressed from debut - and shaped well to boot - when a close second at Wolerhampton a fortnight ago, and with the prospect of more to come, he can make it third-time lucky now switched to turf. Rapture looks sure to be suited by this step up in trip and she rates the main danger ahead of the penalised Kolossus.
