1.50 188Bet Extra Place Races EBF Novice Median Auction Stakes (5) 5f1y

Analyst's Verdict:
Aloysius Lilius boasts a mixed record, yet the pick of his exploits entitle him to respect in what looks an ordinary affair, and he is fancied to come out on top. Recent Beverley winner Packington Lane can give Kevin Ryan's charge most to think about.

2.20 Addleshaw Goddard Nursery Handicap (6) 7f33y

Analyst's Verdict:
House Deposit improved plenty to open his account at Thirsk 16 days ago, pulling well clear of those he raced with. He's open to further progress and is fancied to make a bold bid to follow up. Pesci and My Ukulele may emerge as the chief threats.

2.50 Witherby Publishing Group Handicap (4) 7f33y

Analyst's Verdict:
This looks wide open so a chance is taken on Paparazzi. He can ill afford to start as slowly as he did last time, but promises to be suited by a well-run race, which looks on the cards, and appeals as being on a workable mark. Weellan and How Bizarre have proved largely consistent this term and should also feature.

3.20 Read Silvestre de Sousa At 188Bet Fillies' Handicap (5) 1½m104y

Analyst's Verdict:
Pammi was impressive when scoring at Hamilton last week and wisely turned out under a penalty, she is fancied to continue the good work. Flower Power, if taking up this engagement, and Fire Leopard rate next best.

3.50 RSM Handicap (5) 1m2y

Analyst's Verdict:
Qasr showed improved form and did especially well to gain his first success having done plenty wrong early on at Ayr 17 days ago. He may do even better as he learns to settle and gets the nod to make full use of his draw on the rails. Chinese Spirit and Vigee Le Brun are a couple of others to consider.

85 11. LUCKY VIOLET Linda Perratt Ben Robinson (3)


4.20 Tuv-Sud Ltd Handicap (6) 7f33y

Analyst's Verdict:
Bee Machine ran out a convincing winner at Southwell on Monday and has obvious claims of following up under a penalty back on turf. Supaulette and Spanish Mane look next best.

76 5. BEE MACHINE Declan Carroll Ger O'Neill (5)

74 1. MECCA'S SPIRIT Michael Dods Paula Muir (5)


4.55 Best Odds Guaranteed At 188Bet Handicap (6) 5f1y

Analyst's Verdict:
Kibaar is thriving at present so remains one to keep on side, especially as he retains plenty of scope from a handicapping perspective. Irish-raider Mr Shelby is respected on the pick of his form, while Beverley-winner One Boy has to be feared also under a penalty.
