"The drop back to the minimum trip here will suit..."

Timeform on Copper Jay

#10 Elusive Coral - Vaal R3 (12:25 BST)

This doesn't look the strongest race of its type and it will be disappointing if Elusive Coral isn't able to open her accoint at the third attempt. She was much improved from her debut when narrowly beaten in second over C&D last time and that form very much sets the standard here. Bullsade makes most appeal of the remainder.

#7 An Air of Success - Vaal R5 (13:35 BST)

An Air of Success is having a good season, recording her second win of the year over five furlongs here five days ago, looking better than ever in the process. She is fancied to follow up at the main expense of four-time course winner Kirkconnel Lass.

#6 Copper Jay - Vaal R6 (14:15 BST)

Copper Jay is building a solid profile, resuming winning ways over this C&D early last month, and proving at least as good as ever when seemingly stretched by the longer trip at Turffontein last time. The drop back to the minimum trip here will suit and he is expected to get back on the up. Donny G and Isphan can prove the biggest dangers.
