Despite managing only fourth on his Newcastle introduction, Richard Fahey decided to pitch SELECTED into the Windsor Castle and while he ultimately came up short, he didn't enjoy the smoothest of passages. The fact he even went to Royal Ascot is evidence of the regard in which he is seemingly held. Captain Magnum's debut fourth looks better than it did at the time, with the winner taking sixth in the Coventry and the runner-up going one better since. Sibaaq was all the rage at Redcar so must be better than that display.
Prediction : 1st Selected 2nd Captain Magnum 3rd Sibaaq

MACS BLESSINGS was struggling a bit on the all-weather at the start of the year, but was switched to turf after the resumption of racing and showed his appreciation by landing a C&D prize, with Jessie Allan two and a half lengths away in third. That was the first time Stef Keniry's four-year-old has won over this trip but he clearly has the speed for it. Dodgy Bob struck at Hamilton a couple of days later and is the logical threat, although Star Cracker has to be considered closely as well.
Prediction : 1st Macs Blessings 2nd Dodgy Bob 3rd Star Cracker

Muscika found only one too strong at Doncaster last week, but previously finished behind QUICK LOOK in a warm Haydock handicap. The Mick Easterby-trained gelding outran odds of 80/1 to finish in third spot and the handicapper has taken a chance in dropping him 1lb. Fortamour has been in fine form this year and remains on a mark off which he can be competitive. He was third in a different division of a Ripon handicap in which John Kirkup occupied the runner-up berth, and Michael Dods' charge is respected too.
Prediction : 1st Quick Look 2nd Muscika 3rd Fortamour

MARCH LAW made only a satisfactory beginning to his career at Haydock but he left that performance well behind him when sent to Royal Ascot for the Chesham. The son of Lawman made much of the running and stuck to his guns admirably to find only Battleground too good, and it will be disappointing if he can't make it third-time lucky. There are races in Summa Peto judging by his 6f second here, and Diamondonthehill's debut wasn't devoid of promise either.
Prediction : 1st March Law 2nd Summa Peto 3rd Diamondonthehill

14:45 Ayr

Since going handicapping, LION TOWER has performed with credit at Pontefract and Newmarket and looks the one to be on, while Stittenham Wood made an encouraging start to life in this sphere when a staying-on fourth over 6f at Doncaster. Alix James' Newcastle third augured well for his prospects this campaign, and Productive ran well from on the pace at Newmarket.
Prediction : 1st Lion Tower 2nd Stittenham Wood 3rd Alix James

COMPTON'S FINALE doesn't have the best of strike-rates but his sole victory did come on his only previous attempt at this C&D. Adrian Keatley's sprinter has acquitted himself well in both outings in his current campaign, shaping like career win number two isn't far away. See My Baby Jive so nearly sprung a 100/1 shock on her comeback at Thirsk, finishing third in a blanket finish, and she is a major contender on her handicap bow. Honey Gg may be best of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Comptons Finale 2nd See My Baby Jive 3rd Honey Gg

15:45 Ayr

Colony Queen has won four of her last five starts, including twice since racing started up again, and a further 3lb rise isn't exactly harsh. Glasses Up also arrives in winning form after recapturing some sparkle over 1m here, but perhaps a chance can be taken on SECRETARIAL. The daughter of Kingman might have been a bit rusty on her return from almost a year on the sidelines because she fluffed the start at Beverley. She was sent off as a joint-favourite for that handicap debut, though, so better must be expected.
Prediction : 1st Secretarial 2nd Colony Queen 3rd Glasses Up

16:15 Ayr

QUEEN MIA is yet to get her head in front on turf but it's not through lack of trying, with Declan Carroll's filly giving favourite-backers a run for their money at Thirsk and Leicester recently. She remains at the top of her game and that match practice gives her an edge over Rosemay, who has won her last two but hasn't been sighted for the best part of a year. Ritchie Star went close at Newcastle when last seen and has place claims once more.
Prediction : 1st Queen Mia 2nd Rosemay 3rd Ritchie Star
