2.10 Hobgoblin Legendary Ruby Ale / EBF Maiden Stakes (4) (D.I) 7f3y

Timeform Top Rated:
No ratings for this race

Analyst's Verdict:
No form to go on, but a chance is taken on Tamkeen, who makes plenty of appeal on paper. However, Herdwick, Imperial Past, Jawan and Prime Minister are other interesting debutants, and any market support would have to be taken seriously.


2.45 Hobgoblin Legendary Ruby Ale / EBF Maiden Stakes (4) (D.II) 7f3y

Timeform Top Rated:
83P 3. DREAM WARRIOR Charlie Appleby Colm O'Donoghue
74p 1. BAJAN GOLD Stuart Williams Adam Beschizza

Analyst's Verdict:
Dream Warrior shaped promisingly when third on debut at Ascot 11 days ago, travelling as well as any before ultimately suggesting the run would put an edge on him. He looks open to significant improvement and can make it second time lucky. Newcomers Rich Identity and Regal Reality are respected, while Bajan Gold can also do better.


3.15 Danny And Peggy Wright Memorial Fillies' Handicap (5) 6f3y

Timeform Top Rated:
91 2. FORTITUDE Hugo Palmer Josephine Gordon
90 5. OCEAN TEMPTRESS John Ryan P. J. McDonald
89 4. SEYASAH Chris Wall Ted Durcan

Analyst's Verdict:
Fortitude ran well behind a well-treated pair at Nottingham last month and should give another good account in what looks a weaker contest. Ocean Temptress can be forgiven her effort at Chelmsford, after possibly finding the race coming too soon, while Seyasah would be a big player if returning to her handicap form from 2 starts ago.


3.50 EBF Stallions John Musker Fillies' Stakes (Listed) (1) 1¼m23y

Timeform Top Rated:
121 11. TITI MAKFI Mark Johnston P. J. McDonald
119 1. BEAUTIFUL MORNING Mrs J. Harrington Colm O'Donoghue
117+ 3. HIGH HOPES David Simcock Jamie Spencer

Analyst's Verdict:
High Hopes quickly got back on the up and shaped well having been caught further back than ideal when runner-up at Salisbury last month. She's proven on this sort of ground and gets the narrow vote to resume winning ways. This is competitive though, with Titi Makfi, Vintage Folly and Beautiful Morning heading up the dangers.


4.25 Parklands Leisure Holiday Distributors Handicap (3) 1¼m23y

Timeform Top Rated:
102 4. SWIFTSURE Sir Michael Stoute Ryan Moore
101 1. SOLO HUNTER Martyn Meade Josephine Gordon
101 2. ROTHERWICK Paul Cole P. J. McDonald

Analyst's Verdict:
Swiftsure proved disappointing at Goodwood early last month but her previous form was solid enough in the context of this event, and she gets the narrow vote to bounce back in receipt of her handy weight-for-age allowance. Rotherwick may emerge as the chief threat.


4.55 Sea-Deer Handicap (4) 1m3y

Timeform Top Rated:
108p 1. ZABEEL PRINCE Roger Varian Andrea Atzeni
102+ 2. HONIARA Paul Cole P. J. McDonald
102+ 3. ELTEZAM Amanda Perrett Silvestre De Sousa

Analyst's Verdict:
Zabeel Prince has presumably had his problems given he's so lightly raced, but he clearly possesses a fair degree of ability judged on his facile Nottingham maiden success back in June. He can progress further now handicapping and earns the vote. Honiara and Wealth Tax can emerge next best.


5.25 Stanley Threadwell Memorial Handicap (2) 5f42y

Timeform Top Rated:
115 1. DAKOTA GOLD Michael Dods Connor Beasley
114 5. ORIENT CLASS Paul Midgley Hollie Doyle (3)
112+ 2. GRACIOUS JOHN David Evans Katherine Glenister (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Dakota Gold appeals as still being on a good mark, a sluggish start probably costing him victory at York 10 days ago. He looks sure to go well again and can gain compensation here. Gracious John has hinted at a revival of late and is another to consider along with Jumira Bridge.


5.55 La Continental Cafe Handicap (4) 6f3y

Timeform Top Rated:
101+ 5. COMPRISE Michael Bell Jamie Spencer
100p 3. EQUITATION Roger Varian Andrea Atzeni
99 2. ROSE BERRY Chris Dwyer Silvestre De Sousa

Analyst's Verdict:
Equitation left his debut form well behind when winning at Doncaster last month, and there should be better to come as he now enters handicaps. Next on the list is Comprise, who merits strong consideration given his Newcastle form has received several boosts since, while Jessinamillion can be competitive from this sort of mark.
