"Syphen sets the standard overall, but it would be no surprise to see Cambodia improve passed that one on Thursday."

Rebekah Rabbit - 12:40 Warwick

Rebeckah Rabbit showed much improved form when drawing clear with a fellow handicap debutante last time at Uttoxeter. The form has a good look to it, with the third and fourth (who has won since) both being last-time-out winners, and Rebeckah Rabbit looks set to go well here if building on that. There are plenty of dangers to the selection, with several of these making their handicap debuts, but Solidago ran his best race for a while last time out and is well handicapped on his old form.


Battle Dust - 13:10 Warwick

Battle Dust did remarkably well to win his novice at Chepstow last time, having been off the bridle from half way, and being brought to a standstill by a falling rival at the last flight. The idling second horse that day - Ballywilliam - didn't do the form much good at Haydock on Wednesday, when looking an awkward, but Battle Dust commands plenty of respect here on his handicap debut, with the step up in trip as well as the first-time cheekpieces both looking positive factors for his chances.


Cambodia - 13:30 Lingfield

Chris Wall isn't renowned for his maiden winners, but Cambodia looks set to go very here on his second start, after catching the eye late on on debut at Kempton last time. Syphen sets the standard overall, but it would be no surprise to see Cambodia improve passed that one on Thursday.
