TOFFEE GALORE was a well-backed favourite on her debut at Carlisle and shaped with plenty of promise to finish a staying-on third over that extended 6f trip. This extra yardage looks sure to bring about improvement and she is fancied to see off impeccably-bred newcomer Sapa Inca, a full-sister to Group winners Johannes Vermeer and Elizabeth Browning. Albanita looks best of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Toffee Galore 2nd Sapa Inca 3rd Albanita

CHORAL MUSIC has won four of her five starts so far this year and, despite a further 8lb rise for the latest of those victories at Leicester, she might be able to score again. Blanchefleur won in determined fashion at Sandown and warrants plenty of respect with Seamus Cronin taking a handy 7lb off her back, while first-time gelding Croque Monsieur may improve for the switch to handicap company. A tongue-tie is fitted on him.
Prediction : 1st Choral Music 2nd Blanchefleur 3rd Croque Monsieur

POLYBIUS posted two solid efforts in valuable 5f handicaps at Ascot last month and, now 2lb lower than the latest of those, he looks sure to mount a bold bid back over his optimum trip. Mazzini is the only course winner in the line-up and he ran well in a conditions race at Thirsk when last sighted, while Reckless Endeavour could potentially improve for the application of first-time cheekpieces.
Prediction : 1st Polybius 2nd Mazzini 3rd Reckless Endeavour

CAROLINAE was unable to handle the step up to a Group 3 when behind Pretty Baby last Friday at Goodwood but the return to handicap company, at a course where she gained her biggest career success at Listed level, can see her back to her best. Rock On Baileys is respected in her bid for a hat-trick of victories, while Lucymai is better than what she showed behind the selection over C&D in June.
Prediction : 1st Carolinae 2nd Rock On Baileys 3rd Lucymai

CLIFFS OF CAPRI bounced back when winning a lady amateur riders' handicap at Ascot on his latest start, when clearly benefiting from the addition of cheekpieces, and a repeat of that performance would make him the one to beat. Florencio has been a model of consistency of late and is likely to run his usual honest race, while Quick Breath completes the shortlist on his C&D success last time.
Prediction : 1st Cliffs Of Capri 2nd Florencio 3rd Quick Breath

16:25 Chelmsford City

RAPIER relished the step up to this trip when winning off 6lb lower at Doncaster last month and is open to further improvement over middle distances. True North battled on well to prevail by a head over C&D last time and is feared most as he's a fellow three-year-old in receipt of the weight-for-age allowance. Majboor kept on well to score over 1m at Newbury last time and could also play a supporting role now stepping back up in distance.
Prediction : 1st Rapier 2nd True North 3rd Majboor

17:00 Chelmsford City

SPRING PRAISE bolted up by three lengths over track and trip when last sighted and remains open to improvement beyond a mile as he bids to defy a 6lb rise. The consistent Midnight Mood has been knocking on the door of late and could be tough to keep out of the frame. Others to consider are Sharp Operator, a C&D winner who was second at Brighton on Thursday, and Lady Of York, who debuts for Paul Howling.
Prediction : 1st Spring Praise 2nd Midnight Mood 3rd Sharp Operator
