INDIAN RAJ was a beaten favourite in a class 4 contest over C&D last time but he had been second at Newmarket prior to that and can be given another chance this afternoon. King Robert finished a place in front of the selection latest and should be in the mix, while Q Twenty Boy and Giovanni Tiepolo are the pick of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Indian Raj 2nd King Robert 3rd Q Twenty Boy

YIBIR improved upon his debut performance when a close fifth in a competitive maiden at Newmarket last time and that form was boosted when the third placed in a Listed race last weekend. Based on that performance, the son of Dubawi is the one they all have to beat in this contest. Top Brass is a newcomer to note being the first foal out of a mare who won a Group 3 for these connections. King Vega, who cost 350,000gns, and Power Station are others to note.
Prediction : 1st Yibir 2nd Top Brass 3rd King Vega

Double Or Bubble bumped into a useful rival when finishing second on her debut last year but a chance can be taken with AIM FOR THE STARS. James Tate's filly is out of a mare who won on her racecourse debut and was subsequently Listed placed, and she cost 72,000gns as a yearling. The shortlist is completed by Pholas, Fair Praise and Model Guest.
Prediction : 1st Aim For The Stars 2nd Double Or Bubble 3rd Model Guest

CLAUDIUS SECUNDUS shaped with promise on his turf debut when third here last month and could build on that effort for James Tate. Cieren Fallon's 3lb claim is used this time to help matters, and that could make all the difference for the three-year-old. With Promise remains unexposed on just his third career start (second for William Knight), while recent C&D scorer Colonel Whitehead is also taken seriously despite a 6lb rise.
Prediction : 1st Claudius Secundus 2nd With Promise 3rd Colonel Whitehead

14:20 Sandown

WILD HERO has looked much better since being gelded two starts ago and having struck at Leicester last month in a maiden, is fancied to go in again while his confidence is high. The step up to a mile should suit based on what he showed there, while a mark of 75 seems fair back in handicap company. Calatrava has bumped into a couple of smart rivals recently and should find a race soon, while Al Badr is unexposed and completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Wild Hero 2nd Calatrava 3rd Al Badr

14:50 Sandown

PARADISE ON EARTH took a step forward from her debut when second at Chelmsford a month ago and shaped there as though she might get off the mark next time. John Gosden's filly remains unexposed over 10 furlongs and shouldn't mind this switch to quick turf. By My Side ran respectably against the boys here last time and is interesting back against her own sex wearing a first-time visor, while South Coast and No Nay Bella are others worth taking seriously.
Prediction : 1st Paradise On Earth 2nd By My Side 3rd No Nay Bella

15:20 Sandown

The ultra-consistent MOLINARI was only denied by a neck when looking for back-to-back victories at Ascot last weekend and William Muir's three-year-old can pick up some compensation off the same rating here. Water's Edge has made the podium the last twice and could be dangerous with Cieren Fallon removing 3lb, while El Salvaje has shaped nicely in his three outings so far and shouldn't be underestimated on his handicap bow.
Prediction : 1st Molinari 2nd Waters Edge 3rd El Salvaje

15:55 Sandown

RAVENTREE relished the step up to 1m4f when beaten a neck last time and the extra two furlongs here is only going to help John Gosden's daughter of Nathaniel, who was doing some decent work at the finish in that Lingfield contest. She is fancied to see off fellow handicap debutant Immortal Beloved, who bumped into a useful filly when second at Haydock in June, while Thai Power is only 1lb higher than when second over course and distance recently and has proven himself to be a consistent operator this season.
Prediction : 1st Raventree 2nd Immortal Beloved 3rd Thai Power
