"...looks to have a bit in hand..."

Timeform on The Grand Canal

#5 Desert Dotty - Finger Lakes R1 (17:10)

Desert Dotty makes her first appearance for her new stable, who are responsible for five of the eight runners in this field, and the five-time winner is expected to go well here following a drop in class. Dr Ruthless looks the most dangerous back up to a mile after struggling when dropped to five and a half furlongs last time out.

#2 The Grand Canal - Finger Lakes R5 (18:58)

The Grand Canal was a beaten favourite at this course on his last outing but has placed in three of his six starts and looks to have a bit in hand in this maiden. The shortlist is made up by Joy City and El Sangru, who are both expected to go better in first-time blinkers.

#3 Team Hollywood - Turf Paradise R1 (19:55)

Team Hollywood has shown much-improved form since being upped to a mile and is taken to get back to winning ways now dropped in class. S U M Racer and Semi Sweet are both having their first runs for new stables here and are worth a market check.
