"...with the drop back in trip here a potentially good move, he is the most appealing of these."

Timeform on Where's Jeff

18:00 - Though foiled in his hat-trick bid at Hamilton, WHERE'S JEFF (3) went down all guns blazing and, with the drop back in trip here a potentially good move, he is the most appealing of these. Data Protection is an obvious danger under a penalty following his wide-margin Epsom victory, while Humbolt Current also arrives here on an upward curve and Kannapolis isn't without each-way hope.

18:30 - The vote goes to DIRCHILL (10), who quickened well when landing an Ayr handicap earlier this month and a 5 lb rise may not be enough to prevent him following up. With Doncaster 1-2 Point of Woods and Muatadel running only respectably on Town Moor on Thursday, Hee Haw and Meshardal may prove most troublesome. That said, Pomme de Terre evidently goes well here and will also be dangerous if bouncing back.

19:00 - It's unlikely that a 6 lb penalty will prevent PERSIAN MOON (1) from going in again following his decisive all-the-way success at Yarmouth. Indeed, he remains open to improvement and appeals as the type to go on to better things. Hot Team looked promising on debut and gets the nod for forecast purposes ahead of newcomer Commanding Officer and Absolute Dream, who looks the pick of his yard's quartet.

19:30 - DESERT DIAMOND (5) lost little caste in defeat when runner-up in this grade over a mile at Sandown and, with further progress likely back at this trip, the Dubawi filly should prove hard to beat. Pleasant Surprise will be a big threat if ready to roll following a 9-month absence and is clear next best ahead of Rasima.

20:00 - LA RAV's (4) well-being has to be taken on trust following an 11-month absence but he's the least exposed of these and hails from a yard more than capable of readying one following a spell on the sidelines. Luca Cumani's charge may have most to fear from Kings Gift, who looks dangerous now eased in grade off a reduced mark. Fashion Theory, the lightly-weighted Bertog and Kaeso are others to consider.

20:30 - EEH BAH GUM (1) failed in his bid to complete the 5-timer at Haydock but he bumped into a much-improved rival on that occasion. Tim Easterby's charge may have further progress in him and is taken to resume winning ways, perhaps at the chief expense of Billy Dylan, who wasn't beaten far in a stronger C&D handicap than this in May. Mutabaahy and the progressive Laith Alareen are others to consider.
