2.20 Enhanced Places At 188Bet Handicap (5) 5f6y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Dotted Swiss may have enough in the tank to win this for the in-form Richard Hannon stable but will need to be at her very best. Warrior’s Valley looks a serious danger but may have to settle for second, leaving top-weight Gold Filigree hunting down the final placing.

Timeform Top Rated:
91 6. WARRIOR’S VALLEY David C. Griffiths Andrea Atzeni
89 3. FIRENZE ROSA John Bridger Luke Morris
88 4. SIR HECTOR Charlie Wallis William Carson

2.55 US Masters 6 Places At 188Bet Novice Median Auction Stakes (5) 5f6y

Analyst’s Verdict:
The betting will obviously be informative here. Kingi Compton gets a tentative vote for Archie Watson. Mick Channon is already on the 2-y-o scoreboard so market support for Jungle Inthebungle would be interesting. Sandy Heartbeat is a half-sister to a couple of useful sorts and out of a 2-y-o 5f/6f winner so she is a likely type on breeding.

3.25 Take The Reins Selling Stakes (6) 1¼m

Analyst’s Verdict:
Not an easy seller to assess with the narrow vote in favour of The Jungle Vip. Mark Johnston’s charge needs to shrug off a lesser effort at Southwell on his most recent start, yet the pick of his exploits in minor company give him claims now down in grade. Topamichi should also appreciate the drop in grade, whilst Carvelas can also feature on debut for John Jenkins.

Timeform Top Rated:
76 8. THE JUNGLE VIP Mark Johnston Harry Bentley
74 3. TOPAMICHI Michael Appleby Luke Morris
65 1. CARVELAS J. R. Jenkins Gina Mangan (7)

3.55 188Bet Up To £75 Cash Bonus Novice Stakes (5) 1m1y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Ostilio bumped into a good prospect at Newcastle in November, but was nicely clear of the rest and a maiden win really should be a formality. That said there are a trio of promising onceraced rivals here in Kawasir, Cross My Mind and Possibly So.

Timeform Top Rated:
94p 5. OSTILIO Simon Crisford Andrea Atzeni
88 4. KEY PLAYER Eve Johnson Houghton Charles Bishop
83p 3. KAWASIR Roger Varian Jim Crowley

4.25 188Bet Casino Handicap (4) 6f1y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Sandra’s Secret matched her best form of 2017 when fourth at Wolverhampton last time and remains fairly treated. She gets the vote in a trickylooking contest. Buccaneers Vault and Bernie’s Boy are other key players.

Timeform Top Rated:
97 6. TAVENER David C. Griffiths Fran Berry
96 5. DUTIFUL SON Emma Owen Jamie Spencer
95 1. SANDRA’S SECRET Les Eyre Jane Elliott (5)

5.00 Champions League Betting At 188Bet Handicap (5) 1m7f169y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Master Burbidge is thriving, having followed up his February C&D win with a smooth success over fences at Fontwell. The hat-trick is on. Le Torrent could be the danger if building on his Kempton win where he was returning from a long absence.

Timeform Top Rated:
85 8. MASTER BURBIDGE Neil Mulholland Jamie Spencer
84 5. LE TORRENT Simon Dow Tom Marquand
83 2. WOLF OF WINDLESHAM Stuart Edmunds Jim Crowley

5.30 Racing Welfare Apprentice Handicap (6) 1½m

Analyst’s Verdict:
Things didn’t go Widnes’ way at Wolverhampton and he’s better judged on his near miss over this C&D 19 days earlier. A reproduction of that may well be enough to see him finally get his head in front. Zoffany Bay is bound to attract support following his solid Chelmsford effort, but a 4 lb rise leaves him looking vulnerable and bigger dangers may be posed by Karam Albaari and Outofthequestion.

Timeform Top Rated:
79 4. WIDNES Alan Bailey Darragh Keenan (5)
78 8. KARAM ALBAARI J. R. Jenkins Rossa Ryan (3)
77 7. VICTOR’S BET Ralph Smith Megan Nicholls (3)
