1.45 British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes (4) 7f50y

Timeform Top Rated:
89p 2. DOUBLE REFLECTION K. R. Burke Clifford Lee (3)
88 9. KIRBEC Keith Dalgleish Paul Mulrennan
87p 1. AFFINA Simon Crisford Graham Lee

Analyst's Verdict:
Affina made all in good style at Thirsk a fortnight ago and could defy a penalty for another success here. Double Reflection was a gutsy winner at Chepstow and has to be respected, while Frolic is open to improvement after a promising debut at Newmarket.

2.15 William Hill Join Plus In Shop Today Handicap (6) (D.I) 7f50y

Timeform Top Rated:
78 3. YES YOU Iain Jardine Jamie Gormley (7)
73 4. MAGIC JOURNEY John Quinn Josh Quinn (7)
73 8. JESSIE ALLAN Jim Goldie Sean Mooney (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Yes You is progressing nicely for Iain Jardine and can get the hat-trick up. Magic Journey has been running well at this track and is set for another bold bid, while market support for Kafoo starting out for a new yard would be interesting.

2.45 William Hill Join Plus In Shop Today Handicap (6) (D.II) 7f50y

Timeform Top Rated:
75p 12. PIPE DREAMER Kevin Ryan Shane Gray
74 10. CHEERS BUDDY L. Smyth Daniel Sheehy (7)
72 5. DARVIE David Barron Sam James

Analyst's Verdict:
Pipe Dreamer, a full brother to connections' Duke of York winner Tiddliwinks, shaped well from a poor position here a fortnight ago and could cash in his basement mark if building on that. Harbour Patrol, Jack Blane and Darvie are all big players also.

3.15 William Hill This Is More Handicap (5) 1m

Timeform Top Rated:
88 6. BREANSKI David O'Meara Patrick Vaughan (7)
83+ 3. ABUSHAMAH Ruth Carr James Sullivan
83 11. CHINESE SPIRIT R. Mike Smith Joe Fanning

Analyst's Verdict:
Breanski is down in class for his first meeting with older horses and looks to hold cracking claims. Remember Rocky returned to winning ways here on Saturday night and can go well again if turned out quickly. Abushamah is another to note.

3.45 William Hill Get The App On Google Play Handicap (5) 6f

Timeform Top Rated:
88 4. BENJAMIN THOMAS John Quinn Connor Murtagh (7)
87 10. GONINODAETHAT Jim Goldie Nathan Evans
87 7. TICKS THE BOXES John Wainwright Non Runner

Analyst's Verdict:
Benjamin Thomas ran well despite meeting with defeat when backed at Epsom last time and should give another good account with a promising 7 lb claimer up now. Sahreej and Duncan of Scotland are both interesting runners from Ireland.

4.15 William Hill Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap (6) 5f

Timeform Top Rated:
77 7. CATWILLDO Garvan Donnelly B. A. Curtis
77 8. LADY JOANNA VASSA Richard Guest Joe Fanning
76 5. PILLAR Adrian McGuinness R. P. Whelan

Analyst's Verdict:
Lady Joanna Vassa has really been sharpened up by the fitting of headgear and in the hope she can keep a straighter line in the finish this time she can end her losing run. Star Cracker is coming to the boil and looks a big danger, while Pillar is respected also despite boasting a poor strike rate.

4.45 William Hill Proud To Support Scottish Sport Handicap (3) 1¼m

Timeform Top Rated:
103 1. WEEKEND OFFENDER Kevin Ryan Tom Eaves
102 5. DESERT WAY Rebecca Menzies P. J. McDonald
101 10. ROYAL SHAHEEN Alistair Whillans Paul Mulrennan

Analyst's Verdict:
Weekend Offender ran another fine race when second over C&D a fortnight ago, coming clear with a useful 3-y-o having not been suited by the small field and steady pace. There might not be much of a gallop on in this either, but he still rates the most interesting runner. Desert Way was a good winner at Doncaster 3 weeks ago and is respected from her high draw along with Royal Regent.

5.15 Book For The William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Handicap (6) 1¼m

Timeform Top Rated:
77 1. HAYMARKET R. Mike Smith P. J. McDonald
76+ 9. LENOIRE Michael Appleby Lewis Edmunds (3)
76 5. ROSEMAY Iain Jardine Ben Robinson (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Haymarket is in a rich vein of form and looks set to go well again with P.J. McDonald back in the saddle. Iain Jardine has 3 and Sepal could be the pick of his trio, while the superbly-bred 3-y-o Lenoire could yet come good for Mick Appleby.
