PUBLICIST was a disappointing fourth at Doncaster having shaped with a fair amount of promise when filling the same spot on debut at Newmarket. That said, she might have been inconvenienced by the quick turnaround and an opening mark of 66 may prove to be fairly lenient. Better By Far's second at Hamilton on her penultimate outing would give her solid credentials with William Buick booked for the ride, while Plum Run and Shine That Light appear best of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Publicist 2nd Better By Far 3rd Plum Run

GARTH ROCKETT arrives having benefited from the drop back to 6f on his last couple of starts, winning both his appearances at the course, and he is likely to remain competitive having only gone up 2lb for his most recent success. Fromnowon didn't get the clearest of runs when down the field at Newbury last month and is respected dropping back in trip, while Bayar can enter calculations based on his second at Wolverhampton last time.
Prediction : 1st Garth Rockett 2nd Fromnowon 3rd Bayar

NASH NASHA shaped as though she would benefit plenty from her racecourse debut at Newmarket last month and this well-bred filly, a daughter of Dubawi out of Irish 1000 Guineas heroine Just The Judge, is expected to take a big step forward. Lunar Shadow wasn't disgraced on her debut when fifth at Kempton and she can enter the reckoning along with Aletoile, a homebred newcomer for Mark Johnston, and Cherokee Dance.
Prediction : 1st Nash Nasha 2nd Lunar Shadow 3rd Aletoile

ALEZAN has flourished over a mile the last twice, building on a second at Kempton to land her first career victory when pulling clear at Bath last time. She looks to be ahead of her mark and can continue on an upward curve here. Stopnsearch showed significant improvement when opening his account over course and distance in February and is interesting off a 4lb higher mark following a few months off the track. Sepia Belle also makes appeal stepping up to a mile and could be lurking dangerously at the foot of the handicap.
Prediction : 1st Alezan 2nd Stopnsearch 3rd Sepia Belle

18:05 Lingfield

SHOOT THE MOON disappointed on his handicap debut over 7f last time, but his pair of seconds over 6f before that suggest he could have a big say in this, dropping back to the minimum distance. Good Earth is a consistent performer who could make Saffie Osborne's 7lb allowance count now reverting to maiden company. Summit Fever showed improvement when fourth at Catterick and this appears his trip, while Passional's pedigree suggests she warrants a market check ahead of the her debut.
Prediction : 1st Shoot The Moon 2nd Good Earth 3rd Passional

18:35 Lingfield

This distance brought out the best of DERRY BOY when he got off the mark at Bath last time and it could be the key to unlocking further success as he looks to follow up after a fair 4lb rise. Sweet Charity was brave when scoring at Windsor last month and is likely to be thereabouts, while O'reilly's Pass and Ravens Ark are both interesting making their handicap debuts.
Prediction : 1st Derry Boy 2nd Sweet Charity 3rd Oreillys Pass

19:05 Lingfield

Quemonda was only narrowly denied when trying to follow up her C&D victory at Bath last time and she merits plenty of respect today. That said, the vote goes to SEA OF MARMOON, who hit the crossbar at Newmarket a couple of weeks ago and she remains open to improvement. Others to note are Good Time Charlie and King Athelstan.
Prediction : 1st Sea Of Marmoon 2nd Quemonda 3rd King Athelstan

19:35 Lingfield

MERSIN took a big step forward when only beaten a length into second at Newbury last month and that form was boosted when the third won next time out. A reproduction of that performance today would give the son of Invincible Spirit a big chance. Red Missile merits respect now that he returns to maiden company in first-time cheekpieces, while Tao Te Ching and Nevendon are the pick of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Mersin 2nd Red Missile 3rd Tao Te Ching

20:05 Lingfield

VIOLA has improved with every start to date and she last seen finishing third in a novice race at Yarmouth last month. The winner of that race has won a handicap subsequently which suggests that this daughter of Lope De Vega may be underestimated off an opening mark of 70. Soramond made a winning seasonal/handicap debut at Leicester in June and she is an obvious threat to the selection, while Float and Sunshineandbubbles complete the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Viola 2nd Soramond 3rd Float
