BENIN stepped forward from his first outing when second at Redcar having benefited from the drop to 6f and Sir Mark Prescott's colt can put his experience to good use. Beverage was another to improve for her initial debut as she filled the runner-up spot at Lingfield, while Jadwal and Sadiqaa appeal most of the newcomers as they represent top connections.
Prediction : 1st Benin 2nd Beverage 3rd Jadwal

FOX HILL is holding her form well at present, proving her distance success at Thirsk was no fluke when running a cracker in defeat under a penalty here last time. Another bold showing looks assured. Lua De Mel switches to turf for the first time and warrants consideration along with Mountain Brave, who returns to 6f following a placed effort at Haydock last month.
Prediction : 1st Fox Hill 2nd Lua De Mel 3rd Mountain Brave

17:40 Leicester

RAAJIN built on his sole juvenile outing when second at Lingfield last month and the son of Raven's Pass is likely to have the scope for further progression against rivals who are more exposed. Wild Hero can enter the reckoning based on his return effort when third in a Newmarket handicap, while Rebel Soldier Boy may benefit from the step up to 7f.
Prediction : 1st Raajin 2nd Wild Hero 3rd Rebel Soldier Boy

DEFTERA LAD has had his issues over the years, so it seems wise to strike while the iron is hot, and the eight-year-old has a great chance of following up his recent Wolverhampton victory under a 4lb penalty. Cieren Fallon removes a valuable 3lb and the step up to a mile should pose few problems. Confrerie was successful at Lingfield last month and is respected following a fair 4lb rise, while Compass Point finished ahead of the selection when a beaten favourite at Chelmsford and can't be ignored.
Prediction : 1st Deftera Lad 2nd Confrerie 3rd Compass Point

KING'S SLIPPER has hit the crossbar over a mile on both outings this year and a step up in trip could be just what is required to see Clive Cox's five-year-old land a deserved victory, with the stable in good form. The lightly-raced Red October returns from a long spell off the track and is well treated if fully tuned up. Big Country's mark continues to fall and he could pinch some place money with a 7lb claimer employed in the saddle.
Prediction : 1st Kings Slipper 2nd Red October 3rd Big Country

WIN O'CLOCK ran as well as could have been expected in the King George V at Royal Ascot last time, given that he found himself too far back and met trouble in running. The son of Australia is clearly very talented and he should take plenty of stopping in this weaker contest. Dream With Me has bumped into some useful rivals so far in his short career and he merits respect on his handicap debut, while similar comments apply to Rocket Rod
Prediction : 1st Win OClock 2nd Dream With Me 3rd Rocket Rod

AU CLAIR DE LUNE took a big step forward from her first to second outings judging by her impressive four-length victory at Doncaster last month. The daughter of Sea The Stars looks to have a very bright future and an opening mark of 77 should be workable. A Star Above is also progressive and the recent Thirsk winner could prove to be the main threat to the selection. All of the rest have some sort of chance but En Famille is the pick of them.
Prediction : 1st Au Clair De Lune 2nd A Star Above 3rd En Famille

20:15 Leicester

Cool Strutter was successful at Chepstow a week ago but a 4lb penalty will make his life tougher this evening. With that in mind, the vote goes to TEEPEE TIME, who hit the crossbar over C&D last week and a reproduction of that performance should be good enough to win this contest. Alba Del Sole beat the selection on that occasion but may struggle to confirm that form on 6lb worse terms.
Prediction : 1st Teepee Time 2nd Cool Strutter 3rd Alba Del Sole
