2.10 "Get 1/4 Odds At 188Bet" Future Stayers' Maiden Stakes (3) 1m1f197y

Timeform Top Rated:
90p 10. SETTING SAIL Charlie Appleby James Doyle
83 7. LA LA LAND Jamie Osborne Jamie Spencer
81 8. MT AUGUSTUS Henry Candy Dane O'Neill

Analyst's Verdict:
Setting Sail showed plenty of ability despite being easy to back when runner-up on debut at Leicester, his lack of experience the deciding factor against the winner, and he's taken to go one place better. Knightly Spirit and Nebuchadnezzar both remain with potential and can fill the places.

2.40 TBA Small Breeders' Fillies' Conditions Stakes (2) 7f

Timeform Top Rated:
112 1. BILLESDON BROOK Richard Hannon Sean Levey
92p 7. GIVING GLANCES Alan King Fergus Sweeney
80P 8. SAVAANAH Roger Varian Silvestre De Sousa

Analyst's Verdict:
Billesdon Brook made it 2-2 over this C&D when landing the Prestige Stakes last month and, back down in grade after being pitched into a Doncaster Group 2 recently, she will prove a tough nut to crack despite conceding weight all around. Giving Glances shaped well on her introduction at Nottingham and is open to improvement, but so too is Savaanah and Roger Varian's charge is feared most.

3.10 Fuller, Smith & Turner Plc Handicap (4) 1m1f197y

Timeform Top Rated:
100+ 2. ME TOO NAGASAKI Jeremy Noseda James Doyle
99 5. TURNPIKE TRIP Henry Candy Dane O'Neill
98 1. ZZORO Amanda Perrett Pat Dobbs

Analyst's Verdict:
Me Too Nagasaki has been absent since finishing second at Sandown in June, but that form has worked out well, the forecast conditions here will not be an issue and there could be more to come now that he's faced with a stiffer test. The hat-trick seeking Turnpike Trip has to be feared, while Lunar Jet should also have a part to play if reproducing the form of his latest effort at Newmarket.

3.45 EBF Stallions Foundation Stakes (Listed) (1) 1m1f197y

Timeform Top Rated:
129 7. PROMISING RUN Saeed bin Suroor Pat Cosgrave
125 1. SPARK PLUG Brian Meehan James Doyle
124 2. WHAT ABOUT CARLO Eve Johnson Houghton Charles Bishop

Analyst's Verdict:
None of these can be ruled out but Frankuus is arguably the most solid option under the forecast conditions despite his penalty. Promising Run has the best form and is the obvious threat on her rather belated return, while What About Carlo is another who's proven on soft ground.

4.20 TBA Centenary Fillies' Handicap (3) 1¾m

Timeform Top Rated:
106 6. ST MARY'S Andrew Balding William Cox (7)
104 2. GRACELAND Michael Bell Louis Steward
102 1. GROOVEJET Richard Spencer Fran Berry

Analyst's Verdict:
Melinoe isn't making the rapid improvement that one might expect from a staying handicapper from her yard, but was only narrowly denied at Newmarket, and should be well suited by the extra emphasis on stamina here, so she gets the vote ahead of St Mary's and Notice, who both shaped as if still ahead of their respective marks last time.

4.50 188bet.co.uk Handicap (4) 6f

Timeform Top Rated:
97 5. OCEAN TEMPTRESS John Ryan Jack Osborn (7)
96 6. ISLAND CLOUD Heather Main David Egan (3)
95 4. ABIENTO Ed Walker Jamie Spencer

Analyst's Verdict:
Several in-form sprinters here, but Island Cloud is probably the least exposed of them and showed a liking for this C&D when landing a gamble last month, so he gets the marginal vote ahead of fellow last-time-out winners Abiento and Zebulon, with Bahamian Sunrise also likely to be in the shake up.

5.25 "Daily Racing Specials At 188Bet" Apprentice Handicap (5) 5f

Timeform Top Rated:
91 2. JASHMA Richard Hughes Finley Marsh (3)
89 1. LYDIA'S PLACE Richard Guest Jack Osborn (5)
89 4. THE BIG SHORT Charles Hills Cameron Noble (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Jashma and The Big Short are improving 3-y-os up against more exposed sorts and look likely to fight this out, with the former taken to come out on top on the back of his impressive recent Sandown success. None of the others look to have any secrets from the handicapper, but Wiley Post should at least give his running.
