1.20 Get So Much More With Racing UK Nursery Handicap (6) 5f1y

Timeform Top Rated:
77 5. LANG TOUN LADY Keith Dalgleish Joe Fanning
76 4. PRIMEIRO BOY Richard Fahey Connor Murtagh (5)
76 7. NORTHERN SOCIETY Keith Dalgleish Paul Hanagan

Analyst's Verdict:
Jordan Electrics looked a natural over this C&D when successful a fortnight ago, beating several of these in the process, and a 3 lb rise won't prevent a very bold follow-up bid. Primeiro Boy was his nearest challenger that day and that may prove to be the case again, with Staycation another to consider down in class.

1.50 Watch More With Racing UK Extra Selling Stakes (5) 1m208y

Timeform Top Rated:
88 1. RED CHARMER Marjorie Fife Ben Curtis
84 7. DOSE Richard Fahey Paul Hanagan
81 4. FISHER GREEN Roger Fell Tony Hamilton

Analyst's Verdict:
Red Charmer has a heavy defeat at Ascot to cast aside, but this represents a big drop in class and he's certainly favoured by these conditions conceding weight to inferior rivals. Dose is dangerous if on his game, while Shamaheart arrives on the back of a win in this grade.

2.20 Racing UK's Biggest Ever Flat Season Handicap (5) (D.I) 7f33y

Timeform Top Rated:
92 4. INVIOLABLE SPIRIT Richard Fahey Paul Hanagan
90 8. MAKE ME Tim Easterby David Allan
89 10. NEWSTEAD ABBEY Rebecca Bastiman Jamie Gormley (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Richard Fahey appears to hold a strong hand with Inviolable Spirit and The Right Choice, with the former marginally preferred having shaped well in a deeper race than this at Ayr a fortnight ago. Make Me is unexposed and has to be feared, while Pepys could easily resume his progress back from a break.

2.50 Racing UK's Biggest Ever Flat Season Handicap (5) (D.II) 7f33y

Timeform Top Rated:
90 9. SUPAULETTE Tim Easterby David Allan
88 2. INNER CIRCLE Roger Fell Tony Hamilton
87 1. EXPLAIN Ruth Carr James Sullivan

Analyst's Verdict:
Supaulette showed improved form to resume winning ways when beating 2 subsequent winners at Newcastle and can defy a 5 lb rise. Other last-time-out winners Explain and Roaring Forties are feared most.

3.20 Racegoers Club 50th Anniversary Handicap (2) 7f33y

Timeform Top Rated:
117 2. LOVE DREAMS Mark Johnston Joe Fanning
116 1. MUNTADAB Roger Fell Oakley Brown (7)
115 7. ROUSAYAN David O'Meara Sam James

Analyst's Verdict:
Hayadh never really looked like justifying support in the Ayr Silver Cup recently, but the drop to 6f was probably against him, so he's worth another chance back up in trip. Cold Stare and Starlight Romance occupied the first 2 positions in a handicap at Haydock last month and head the opposition.

3.50 Breeders Backing Racing EBF Flying Scotsman Conditions Stakes (3) 5f1y

Timeform Top Rated:
126 6. TARBOOSH Paul Midgley Kevin Stott
119 2. MYTHMAKER Bryan Smart Graham Lee
119 4. LINE OF REASON Paul Midgley Joe Fanning

Analyst's Verdict:
Tarboosh has thrived in this second half of the season, taking his form to new levels, a smart sprinter now, and he should take all the beating on these terms. Mythmaker and Line of Reason can battle for minor honours.

4.20 Roa/Racing Post Owners' Jackpot Handicap (5) 1½m104y

Timeform Top Rated:
84 11. MYSTICAL MAC Iain Jardine Andrew Mullen
82 1. BRISK TEMPO Richard Fahey Paul Hanagan
82 3. X RATED Mark Johnston Joe Fanning

Analyst's Verdict:
Mystical Mac had excuses at Ayr last time and has been given a chance by the handicapper. In-form pair Brisk Tempo and Restive head the dangers.

4.50 Best Flat Races Live On Racing UK Amateur Riders' Handicap (5) 5f1y

Timeform Top Rated:
93 2. PAVERS PRIDE Noel Wilson Miss Becky Smith
92? 1. ECONOMIC CRISIS Alan Berry Mr Billy Garritty (5)
91 5. LEXINGTON PLACE Ruth Carr Miss Emily Bullock (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Pavers Pride has reacted well to the fitting of blinkers, looking better than ever the last twice, and seems sure to make another bold bid. Mable Lee is feared most with Serena Brotherton booked.
