Unibet ’15 To Go’ Handicap
Recovery Run 0.5pt EW 16/1 4 places (Coral/Lad)
A very useful 2yo who has put a line through a couple of lesser efforts this year with an improved performance last time out. Capable of better yet and if able to cope with this testing ground today is bang there on previous form with a few of the market principals today. Eased a couple of pounds following that latest run and looking to be on a very competitive mark.

Whispering Angel Oak Tree Stakes
Vadream 1pt win only 9/2
Entered the tracker following an eye catching run last time out at York. That run backed up the form of her previous efforts in the 1000 Guineas and the Jersey Stakes. Back up in trip here and on ground that looks to suit and should see her at her very best today. We may just have a G1 horse that has snuck in here getting weight from many of her rivals.

Markel Molecomb Stakes
Nymphadora 1pt win only 9/1
Taken to bounce back from a lesser performance last time. Was due to run at Ascot last Saturday in a similar race and we can only think that the quick ground that day as with her last run didn’t suit. The favourite was impressive enough last time out but we would rather take our chances on this still unknown filly from the Andrew Balding stable who could well just be a different gravy at this longer trip with some give in the ground. Won going away in a listed race back in May and that race looks far above ordinary.

Qatar Sussex Stakes
Lope Y Fernandez 0.5pt Ew 16/1
Placed 4 times in G1 company last term and is no forlorn hope here for Aiden O Brien. Soft ground is a slight concern but with little rain forecast and a drying breeze we are hopeful that he will handle todays conditions. Track should suit and there will be plenty of pace on which could just set it up for one that has snuck under the radar. Finished runner up in the Queen Anne Stakes last time out, a race that has produced 8 of the last 15 winners of this race. However the St James Palace winners also do well which goes in the favour of Poetic Flare.

British Ebf Premier Fillies’ Handicap
Prado 1pt win only 17/2
Unexposed and somewhat of an unknown quantity over this new longer trip. Hard to know whether she will stay this far and will no doubt be produced late under a Jamie Spencer drive. One thing we know for sure however is that conditions play into her favour and that can not be said for many of this field. Has gone well here before and this track should suit with how it puts the emphasis on speed for one stepping up in trip.

World Pool Handicap
Magical Wish 0.5pt EW 16/1
Runner up in this race 12 months ago from a 4lb higher mark so its fair to say that he is sitting on a fair mark coming in here. Conditions look to suit and this one is capable of a big run for the trainer that has won this race on 3 occasions.
