1.55 Goodwood – POTAPOVA (1pt win – 2/1 Bet365, 5/4 generally)

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained POTAPOVA has form figures on her seasonal debuts of 112 (2-3), with the defeat by a head, and she can make a winning return to action in this 1m Listed contest for fillies and mares. She was due to run at Sandown’s abandoned meeting the other Friday, but this looks easier, and the ground should be more to her liking.

William Hill Conqueror Fillies’ Stakes (Listed Race)

2.15 Newmarket – AZURE BLUE (1pt win – 5/1 Bet365 + William Hill, 9/2 generally)

AZURE BLUE made it five wins from nine starts in a 12-month period when landing a gamble in a course and distance Listed contest for fillies’ last October. Backed from 9-1 into 9-2 joint-favourite, she missed a beat at the start – not for the first time – but soon recovered to race in midfield. She made her move two out and, once in front inside the final furlong, there was only going to be one winner. That win took her 6f record to 32151241411 (5-11) and she can take this Listed prize before making her mark in Group company. I’d have preferred a bigger field but there should be sufficient pace on courtesy of stablemate Gale Force Maya and Queen Olly. The last-named, one of only two three-year-olds in the race, looks the main danger and is the one I’ve saved on.

Howden British EBF Ellen Chaloner Stakes (Listed Race) (The Kilvington Stakes) (Fillies & Mares)

3.25 Newmarket – TURNTABLE (2pt win – 9/1 Bet365, 15/2 generally)

TURNTABLE has won on Newmarket’s July Course but it’s the Rowley Mile on which he excelled for the now-retired Chris Wall. His full course record reads 411211 (4-6) with the first defeat by just over three lengths at 40-1 when unsuited to first-time headgear and the other by just half a length at 12-1. A number of the ex-Chris Wall horses have won at the first time of asking foe their new handlers, including one trained by Harry Eustace, and it looks significant that he runs here on his stable debut.

Howden Suffolk Stakes (Heritage Handicap)

4.55 Thirsk – TELE RED (1pt win – 12/1 generally)

TELE RED enjoyed a fruitful 2022 campaign, landing a small-field 1m2f handicap on fast ground at Pontefract in early August and seeing off 12 rivals in the Beverley mud the following month. He started as favourite for both those wins but was weak in the market ahead of his reappearance at Haydock last week and ran accordingly. Drawn wide, his usual forcing tactics were abandoned in favour of hold-up tactics, and he raced keenly as a result. He was in last place on turning into the straight and, after briefly looking as though he would challenge on the inner, was eased and dropped back to last place, finishing less than nine lengths behind the winner. He’s going to come on a bundle for that run and it’s interesting to see him out again so quickly and in a much weaker race.
