Timeform Daily: Wednesday, Sandown 19:30

Our Race of The Day on Wednesday comes from Sandown

Plenty of near-useful sorts line up for this seven-furlong event, read on for Timeform's view...

Dutch Supreme improved on debut to win 6f maiden at Kempton in May. Built on that when going down narrowly in handicap there following month and unsuited by run of race here last time. More to come still.

Dutch Supreme improved on debut to win 6f maiden at Kempton in May. Built on that when going down narrowly in handicap there following month and unsuited by run of race here last time. More to come still.

Usain Colt left debut form behind when scoring impressively over 6.5f at Newbury last October (form franked since). Best not judged on reappearance effort and remains a horse with potential.

Johnno got better with experience as a juvenile, culminating in a win at Wolverhampton (7f) in October. Run well on all starts this year, successful over C&D last time, and 5 lb rise fair enough.

Solar Deity won over 7f on debut at Kempton in November. Blinkers didn't help on slower ground than previously last time, and a bit to prove on the back of that.

Sir Glanton put up a couple of creditable efforts in face of stiffish tasks since debut win at Goodwood (6f) last May. Not got much in hand of the assessor though and hopes rest on hood having galvanising effect.

Oblitereight improved to get off the mark in 7f minor event at Kempton on seasonal reappearance, beating Mayo Lad with plenty in hand. That form not worked out though and others stronger.

Kinloch Castle won Southwell maiden final 2-y-o start and more progress when close third at Musselburgh (1m) on return. Unable to continue the good work since and handicapper looks to be in charge.

Sheikh The Reigns placed twice in maidens last October and didn't need to improve when off the mark at Kempton in November. Respectable effort at Epsom last time but vulnerable in this field.

Stirring Ballad is a half-sister to Coronation Stakes winner Balisada. Showed promise on first 3 starts and didn't need to improve to get off the mark at Folkestone last time. Handicap mark looks stiff though.

Tenbridge put up consistent efforts on AW and improved to take soft-ground 13-runner Lingfield handicap last month. Couple of respectable efforts there and at Windsor since, but more needed in this field.

Timeform 1-2-3:

1. Dutch Supreme
2. Usain Colt
3. Johnno

Timeform Verdict: Dutch Supreme remains open to a bit more improvement and didn't have things go his way when third to Johnno over C&D last time. He is taken to reverse the placings on these revised terms. Usain Colt is another who may still have more to come and he can chase the selection home.
