Race 1 (12:20pm) BETTY BALOO

This Tim Easterby mare has had a stong start to her career, opening with successive bumper wins last season and getting back to that already high standard, last time out, when second (of five) at Newcastle back in November on the second appearance of the season. Plenty of consideration is warranted here and can go close once again in this relatively open contest.

Race 2 (12:50pm) DUBAI DAYS

Four wins and four places in fifteen runs, with Nick Alexander’s runner taking the spoils on his chasing debut at Ayr (soft) last time out, twenty-three days ago, beating three others, over the 2m 4f, trip and running well. A rise of just 1lb looks to be quite generous for this contest and he will no doubt enter the equation.

Race 3 (1:20pm) SON OF THE SOMME

Brian Ellison’s runner has taken his time to show his abilities, placing sixth in the first three starts, before a second in the latest at Doncaster (2m 3f, good) in November, on handicap debut, when just a neck to Ginger Du Val. Has more to come you feel, although a 6lbs rise and a seven week break may just take the edge off of any sharpness, however in this weak field, he should be able to bridge any issue here and go close.

Race 4 (1:50pm) THREE CASTLES

Not the greatest strike rate, with four wins in forty-four starts across both disciplines, but did pick up a victory as recently as last September, when winning on the flat at Musselburgh (1m 5f, good to soft), ahead of De Mazzaro. He finally got off the mark over hurdles last time out, again at Musselburgh (2m 3f, good to soft) and can add to that victory here, despite a 6lbs rise.

Race 5 (2:20pm) DR SANDERSON

Seven wins in twenty-two starts, with Ben Haslam’s runner coming into this race looking for a hat-trick, after victories at Ayr (2m, good to soft) and most recently, at Doncaster (2m 3f, good to soft), when beating Java Point by half a length. He had been helped by lowly marks in those contests, so this 5lbs rise will test his mettle, but off the back of those performances, he clearly has scope to make it a treble in this contest.

Race 6 (2:50pm) DON HERBAGER

Three wins and three places in fourteen starts and comes in off the back of a victory at Lingfield (2m 7f, heavy), when a comfortable 3.5 lengths clear of Hatchet Jack, last month, leading two from home and holding on in relative comfort. This Venetia WIlliams charge looks likely to defy the 5lbs rise and seemingly holds the aces in this race.
