"...he starts out in handicaps from a mark that should make him competitive at least..."

Timeform on Harbour Storm

18:10 - CENT FLYING (6) only narrowly failed to add to his Bath reappearance victory when beaten a whisker by Spot Lite at the same course next time. He enjoys a healthy pull at the weights with that rival in this opening leg of the Placepot and should prove a tough nut to crack. Spanish Star was only fifth in that Bath handicap, but will be a threat if the visor works the oracle, while recent all-weather winner Glamorous Rocket also merits respect.

18:40 - SHANGHAI GRACE (8) makes plenty of appeal in a race where the betting will likely provide the best guide, with nothing to go on form-wise. He is bred to be a precocious sort (by Kyllachy and out of a seven-furlong winner at two) and represents a yard well capable of readying a newcomer. The Richard Hannon-trained duo, Glory and Swiper, are feared most ahead of Concierge and Watchmyeverymove.

19:10 - EDGE OF THE WORLD (5) maintained her unbeaten record since the blinkers were fitted with a game victory at Leicester last month, headed inside the final furlong but rallying bravely to get back on top close home. That appeals as fair form for the grade with three improvers pulling clear, and though a 4 lb higher mark makes life tougher here, Edge of The World could yet have even more to offer (still lightly-raced), and is fancied to complete the hat-trick for Ralph Beckett with a defeat of Glamorous Dream.

19:40 - HARBOUR STORM (4) put his experience to good use after eight months off/on stable debut to get off the mark at Wolverhampton last month, making all with the minimum of fuss but showing improved form in the process. Robyn Brisland's charge has a far more difficult task on his hands here, but he starts out in handicaps from a mark that should make him competitive at least, still open to more improvement after just three starts, and he could be worth chancing at the prices, with Buffer Zone an obvious danger.

20:10 - MORNING SKYE (5) found only a progressive rival too good at Haydock recently and should take plenty of stopping off just a 1 lb higher mark in this penultimate leg of the Placepot. Desert Path didn't get the chance to show what he's capable of at Goodwood last time and, having won in good style here previously, he has to be feared now upped in trip. Firlinfeu is another to consider.

20:40 - WORTH WAITING (1) was only workmanlike when landing the odds at Redcar last time, but she remains capable of better, perhaps significantly better than this opening mark would suggest. Next on the list is Contrive, who was doing all her best work at the finish at Goodwood last time and can be expected to improved now upped in trip on this handicap debut. She is feared most ahead of Starlight Mystery.

21:10 - STAPLEGROVE (11) get the vote in the finale having left his debut form well behind when fourth in a big-field event over a mile and a quarter here three weeks ago, with the step up to this trip expected to suit the son of Camelot. The unexposed Kaanoon is an obvious danger following his victory on the all-weather.
