1: TANGLED (3:50pm Pontefract) (3 votes)

Six wins in forty-nine starts, with the last of those coming back in June 2021, when sealing a double at Carlisle (1m, good to firm). Under Gemma Tutty’s stewardship, he has improved a little on previous performances, with a second of nine at Beverley (1m, good to firm) back in June, his best performance, when missing out by a neck to Grifter and looked good when coming with a late run at Ripon last time out, when fourth and 1.25 lengths adrift of the winner. Well handicapped and in with a genuine chance this afternoon.

2. MURAU (8:50pm Kempton) (3 votes)

Two wins in the last three starts, including last time out, when attempting 2m for the first time, here in June, beating Caldwell by half a length, making good headway as they headed into the final furlong. Looks to have more to come and goes in as favourite, ahead of Vino Victrix.

3. DESERT TEAM (1:40pm Brighton) (2 votes)

Three wins in seven career starts, with those coming in the space of five runs, including the latest at Newmarket (5f, good to firm), when 0.75 lengths ahead of Rum Cocktail, with Simon and Ed Crisford’s runner making all. A 3lbs rise demands more this time around, but she has the ability for further improvement, Tough challenge with The Defiant here, but definite outright claims here.

4. GRANARY QUEEN (3:40pm Brighton) (2 votes)

In excellent form of late, with two wins in the last three starts, including a victory here, over 7f in June and a victory last time out at Leicester (7f, good to firm), beating Silent Flame by a shorthead, just two weeks ago. This move back to a mile should not be an issue, while the pace here is expectdd to suit too. The Covex Kid is the clear favourite, but she definitely warrants each-way backing at very least.

5. COMMANDMENT (5:20pm Pontefract) (2 votes)

Two victories in seven for this Ed Dunlop filly, including the penultimate start here over C&D, when 1.75 lengths clear of Clarets Glory. She placed third of six at Yarmouth last time out, although the race was not run to suit her style, so more is expected this time around and looks set to battle Corinthia Knight for the spoils.
