"...he is very much at home on heavy ground..."

Timeform on Mobsta

14:20 - You get the feeling G EYE JOE (6) remains with a bigger effort in his locker back on turf and he could be worth chancing in the hope he handles conditions. He stays further than this trip and first-time blinkers could eke out a bit more. The ground won't be an issue for Give Em A Clump, who is interesting back from a gelding operation in re-fitted headgear. Maygold was on a high when last seen and rates a big player also.

14:50 -Artair has been all the rage in the betting for this, but Michael Bell isn't renowned for having early juvenile winners, and AWAKE IN ASIA (2) could be the way to go. David Evans has already had a couple of two-year-old winner this season, and Awake In Asia makes plenty of appeal on pedigree. Solesmes and Blown By Wind, both of whom also represent yards whose juveniles have been showing up well, could prove the biggest dangers.

15:20 - This looks a potentially useful three-year-old contest, with Dante/Derby entry Sevenna Star a very interesting runner, but preference is for the Mark Johnston-trained KING'S PROCTOR (1). He won a mile maiden at Nottingham on his final start, still looking green but finding plenty for pressure once getting organised. The ground is a question mark for most of these, but King's Proctor is bred to improve for middle distances this season, and is looks the one to be with at the prices.

15:50 - BOMBERO (8) is a winner on heavy ground and has returned in good heart this season. He had the run of the race at Kempton five days ago, but he could be seen in a better light returned to turf, and Silvestre De Sousa retains the ride. Fast And Hot is doubtless capable of a big run back at Windsor but may not want it to get too testing. Essenaitch is another who enjoyed a good time of it here last year and has to be respected.

16:20 -It's no surprise that MOBSTA (2) has been well backed this morning given he very much caught the eye on his return at Doncaster last month, and he is very much at home on heavy ground. His last win came in a Group 2 in Ireland nearly two years ago, and he is very well handicapped on the pick of his form. Glory of Paris is in good heart and ran well in the mud at Bath last time, while Poet's Princess is capable of a big run if ready to go on her.

16:50 - There are several potential improves here, but ICART POINT (5) makes the most appeal for Clive Cox. He showed enough in a trio of runs last season, not knocked about on his final start at Kempton. Icart Point will stay further than a mile this season, but this trip should be fine on his return in heavy ground; an opening mark of 69 could well underestimate him and he strikes as the type that could rack up a sequence.

17:25 - BAKHT A RAWAN (4) has a lengthy absence to overcome, but has gone well fresh in the past and is proven on heavy ground, so is fancied to make a winning return back under Silvestre De Sousa. Spanish History, Zlatan and Wicker can all figure if handling conditions.
