GLORIOUS CHARMER is bred to be an above-average juvenile, being from the family of the Queen Mary winners Romantic Myth and Romantic Liason, and he was not disgraced when finishing third on her debut at Doncaster last month. That form was boosted when the winner won the Lily Agnes at Chester last week and this son of Charm Spirit tops the shortlist. High Horse has a similar profile to the selection and is another who should improve for his first run. Amazing Fox cost 180,000gns as a yearling and his half-sister won in the April of her juvenile season and went on to be a Graded performer in the US.
Prediction : 1st Glorious Charmer 2nd High Horse 3rd Amazing Fox

The unbeaten FAYROUZ ROSE made an impressive debut for this yard when winning well at Brighton earlier in the month. An opening mark of 85 is stiff enough but she may have more to offer on just her third start. Last Enchantment put in a career best to win at Nottingham at the beginning of the month and a 4lb rise in the ratings should be workable. Time Change bumped into a couple of decent rivals at Windsor a few weeks ago and is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Fayrouz Rose 2nd Last Enchantment 3rd Time Change

ROCK EAGLE created a very good impression when making a winning debut at Windsor last month and the second from the race, who was giving the selection 7lb, has been given an opening mark of 102. Based on that evidence it would be no surprise to see him prove to be as good as his Group-winning half-brother Highland Knight. King Lud and Mapped can also be expected to go well but their form is not quite as strong as the selection's.
Prediction : 1st Rock Eagle 2nd King Lud 3rd Mapped

Plenty of these have valid claims but there is no standout candidate, although the marginal preference is for NASSYA. The daughter of Dubawi displayed some promising signs when finishing fifth on her debut at Doncaster last October and her pedigree suggests that she should improve as a three-year-old. Sun Maiden did not live up to her breeding, being a Frankel half-sister to Midday, when finishing fourth on her debut in December but it is far too soon to be writing her off. Others to note are Sheila's Rock, Voluminous, Whispering Sands and White Light.
Prediction : 1st Nassya 2nd Sun Maiden 3rd Sheilas Rock

16:25 Salisbury

Tolkyn is a well bred filly and should improve for her first racecourse experience at Sandown last month. That said, a chance can be taken with ANBAA, who cost 500,000 euros as a yearling and that is no surprise given her pedigree. The daughter of Lope De Vega is a full-sister to the Group 3 winner Ride Like The Wind as well as the useful handicapper Qassem. Tamreer is another newcomer to consider given that she is out of a Group-placed mare who is from the family of the Group 1 winner Muhtathir.
Prediction : 1st Anbaa 2nd Tolkyn 3rd Tamreer

16:55 Salisbury

BIRD FOR LIFE has been very consistent over the past couple of months on the all-weather and may prove capable of further improvement returning to turf for the first time since her juvenile days. Garcon De Soleil was a runaway winner here over 1m6f last time and he shouldn't be inconvenienced back down in distance, while Sanches looks best of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Bird For Life 2nd Garcon De Soleil 3rd Sanches

17:25 Salisbury

GO ROO represents a stable in excellent form at present and he showed some decent form last season which suggests an opening mark of 74 could prove to be fairly lenient. Qaaraat kept knocking on the door last year and is entitled to improve for that recent outing at Nottingham, while Iconic Knight and Quick Breath can fight it out for the minor money.
Prediction : 1st Go Roo 2nd Qaaraat 3rd Iconic Knight

18:00 Salisbury

PORTO FERRO arrives having been impressive on her most recent start at Windsor and, on that evidence, can defy the 6lb penalty just 10 days later. Mooroverthebridge is another in the field trying to record a quickfire double having won at Bath earlier in the month, while others worthy of consideration include Fantasy Justifier, second in the same Bath contest and comes into this on better terms, and Hurricane Alert.
Prediction : 1st Porto Ferro 2nd Mooroverthebridge 3rd Fantasy Justifier
