"...with the drop back to 6f likely to be in his favour, he gets the narrow vote..."

Timeform on Buccaneer's Vault

2.15 Racing To School Novice Auction Stakes (5) 6f

Timeform Top Rated:
94p 6. I BELIEVE IN YOU Iain Jardine Nathan Evans
84p 4. AHLAN BIL EMARATI Kevin Ryan Tom Queally
65 2. SMOKI SMOKA Tom Dascombe Richard Kingscote

Analyst's Verdict:
I Believe In You is a speedily-bred colt who produced a promising first effort when third at Redcar 2 weeks ago, doing best of those held up. He appeals as the type to do better with that under his belt and gets the narrow vote to come out on top. Ahlan Bil Emarati won't be long in breaking his duck judged on his exploits to date and he is feared, ahead of debutant Call Him Al.

85 2. MAC O'POLO Tom Dascombe Richard Kingscote
84 15. RAVENSWOOD Kenneth Slack Paul Hanagan
84 8. KING'S COINAGE Ruth Carr James Sullivan

Analyst's Verdict:
Whilst the draw in 13 is a slight concern, Mac O'Polo has often shaped as though worth a try at this trip and, having shaped well when runner-up at Haydock last month, he is fancied to make a bold bid. Ravenswood and Kings Gold are obvious threats on recent evidence though, whilst King's Coinage can go well at likely longer odds.

Timeform Top Rated:
94 3. BUCCANEERS VAULT Paul Midgley Paul Mulrennan
93 11. SOCIALITES RED Scott Dixon Gabriele Malune (5)
92 12. CASE KEY Michael Appleby Silvestre De Sousa

Analyst's Verdict:
Buccaneers Vault hinted at a revival when seventh in a big field York handicap recently and, with the drop back to 6f likely to be in his favour, he gets the narrow vote. Straightothepoint, Socialites Red and Case Key are just a trio of others to consider in a wide-open affair.

Timeform Top Rated:
88 9. REBEL STATE Jedd O'Keeffe Jack Garritty
86 14. SIR LANCELOTT Adrian Nicholls Andrew Mullen
85 10. CELTIC ARTISAN Rebecca Menzies Cam Hardie

Analyst's Verdict:
Rebel State arrives in good form, scoring at Ayr prior to going close back at that venue 8 days ago. He can continue the good work, with Fleetfoot Jack and Pepys next best in that order.

Timeform Top Rated:
93p 2. MUTAFANI Simon Crisford Silvestre De Sousa
79 3. ZARJAZ Kevin Ryan Tom Queally
70 8. TIGERSHARK Bryan Smart Graham Lee

Analyst's Verdict:
Mutafani won with plenty in hand under a positive ride at Chelmsford last month and holds strong claims of following up here. Southwell=scorer Zarjaz looks the principal danger with Tigershark next best.

Timeform Top Rated:
83 4. CUPPACOCO Ann Duffield Jack Garritty
80 9. ERASTUS Ruth Carr James Sullivan
79 6. GHOST John Quinn Jason Hart

Analyst's Verdict:
Ghost left her disappointing Wolverhampton effort well behind when runner-up in a stronger contest at Redcar a fortnight ago and could be the answer to a tricky-looking contest. Erastus and Cuppacoco are others to consider.

Timeform Top Rated:
80 2. MUTABAAHY Antony Brittain Cam Hardie
79 3. CHERRY OAK Ben Haslam Paul Mulrennan
79 5. REVENGE Tim Easterby David Allan

Analyst's Verdict:
This can go to Mutabaahy, who finished second from an unpromising position at Ripon last time and remains on a workable mark. Revenge and French Silk are other key players.

Timeform Top Rated:
78+ 9. STAY IN THE LIGHT K. R. Burke Silvestre De Sousa
77 1. CALLIOPE Kenneth Slack James Sullivan
76 10. BLUE HAVANA John Quinn Andrew Mullen

Analyst's Verdict:
Stay In The Light could have more to offer yet and wasn't seen to best effect when a staying-on fourth at Lingfield last time. She is fancied to open her account. Calliope and Blue Havana rate the principal dangers.
