"...a 5 lb rise is unlikely to stop her from following up."

Timeform on Katy Royal

Katy Royal - Doncaster 15:25

Katy Royal has improved with each of her starts so far this season, and she took a notable step forward to double her career tally over 3m3f at Sedgefield last month, getting well on top at the finish. She looks one to keep on the right side of for a while, and a 5 lb rise is unlikely to stop her from following up. Fellow last-time-out winner Gold Chain and Muthabir head up the dangers in an open contest.

Looking Well - Doncaster 16:00

Looking Well was in the process of running well when departing at Kelso in December, giving the distinct feeling that there's still unfinished business with him. He looked sure to play a part in the finish, and considering he's on a very good mark at the moment, he makes the most appeal despite today's trip being shorter than ideal. Rocklander will find this less competitive than usual and is next best.

Now Look At Me - Doncaster 17:00

Now Look At Me has shown himself to be a useful prospect in two starts in bumpers so far, and even though he has to concede a penalty once again here, he's given the distinct impression that he will get better with experience. As such, he is selected to improve past Fubar. Welsh Saint failed to meet market expectations starting out at Bangor but he ought to step up on that.
