Race 1 (1:00pm) VULTAR

Free Eagle colt, out of Grey Frost, who makes debut in this contest. This Clive Cox runner was bought for 50,000 gns as a yearling and is a brother to 6f – 7f winner, Verreaux Eagle and a half brother to three winners including Winter Warmth and Primeravez. Interesting newcomer here and one that can feature in a realtively calm opening contest.

Race 2 (1:30pm) POLLY POT

Progressive Harry Dunlop runner, who placed fourth of ten at Lingfield (6f, a/w), back in June, before stepping up and taking a maiden victory at Bath (5.5f, firm) twenty-three days ago, beating Saucisson by 1.25 lengths. Up in trip for this nursery debut and looks to have more to come, with Rob Hornby booked to ride for the first time.

Race 3 (2:00pm) HOLOCENE

Willie Haggas’ runner won on debut at Ripon (1m 2f, good to firm) back in May, when 1.25 lengths clear fo Yorkindness. She has ran to a similar level in two races since, including when third of five here at Nottingham, over 1m 2f and should relish the drop in trip on this first handicap start. Looks the least exposed of these runners and arguably sets the standard here.

Race 4 (2:30pm) GASTRONOMY

Ran green on debut, when fifth of six at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) three weeks ago, finishing 3 lengths adritt of the winner, having been unable to really make a bid in the closing stages. The extended trip should aide Roger Varian’s charge here and with that experience under his belt, looks to be another who should show significant improvement, with Edward Bethell’s Nigwa the main concern.

Race 5 (3:00pm) MIDGETONAMISSION

Three wins in twenty-five starts, including victory last time out at Lingfield (1m 2f, a/w), beating Laurentia by 4 lengths. All her victories have come this year and on the all-weather, so it remains to be seen if she can improve on her 0-10 turf record, but she has placed second on two occasions, so should not be far off, on current form and with the penalty too.

Race 6 (3:30pm) CHICHEN ITZA

Promising contender for Sir Michael Stoute, with a record of 43-3 so far, placing third in the latest at Haydock (1m 2f, good to soft) after a 241 day break, some 4 lengths adrift of Darmoiselle. She has since had another 70 days break for this contest and will be looking to improve on handicap debut. Open to improvement and off a decent mark to put herself in the mix.
