Race 1 (1:15pm) LEADMAN

One of two Kingman colts, out of Big Break, this Andrew Balding debutant is a brother to mile winner, Baseman and half-brother to 1m 2f winner, Georgeville. Obvious appeal on pedigree and with David Probert onboard has significant claims in this contest.

Race 2 (1:50pm) YONAFIS

Three from three on the all-weather, including his penultimate start at Wolverhampton (1m, a/w), when 0.75 lengths ahead of Sweeping on return from a 152 day break. Willie Haggas’ runner made a useful first start on turf, when eighth of thirty at Ascot (1m, good to firm) in the Class 2 – Britannia Stakes, some 4.5 lengths adrift of winner, Thesis. Step up in trip looks likely to help here and this exciting prospect can go close here.

Race 3 (2:25pm) MAWJ

Winner here on the Rowley Mile (6f, good to firm) back in May on debut, when 4.75 lengths ahead of Believing, before stepping to Group 3 level, in the Albany Stakes at Ascot (6f, good to firm) and placing an impressive second, 1.75 lengths behind Meditate, three weeks ago. Right in the mix here.

Race 4 (3:00pm) SPIRIT MIXER

In strong form this year, scoring a treble at Chester (1m 5f, good) in May, when winning a Class 3 contest by 2.5 lengths. Has since stepped in level, placing fourth of seven and getting bumped in the process again at Chester, before a second of twenty in Northumberland Plate at Newcastle (2m, a/w), when half a length behind Trueshan. Larger price than normally looked for, but merits interest after that latest run.


Race 5 (3:35pm) INSPIRAL

The only option in this contest, having won all five races, including an impressive victory in the Group 1 – Coronation Stakes (1m, good to firm), after a 252 day break, beating Spendarella by 4.75 lengths. Class act of the field and should easily justify strong odds on favouritism.


Race 6 (4:10pm) LA MAQUINA

Won this race last year, but has not been able to add to the four career victories since, although towards the backend of a run of races over in Sakhir, Bahrain, George Baker’s gelding did place second in a smart handicap over 9f. No issue with a returning from a long break, as did so to win this very race and very much in the hunt for the spoils in this contest.
