FOREVER FORWARD will have gone into plenty of notebooks when staying on well for second on debut at Sandown and the son of Exceed And Excel could take some stopping in this. Arsonist was not beaten far when third at Chelmsford, but perhaps bigger dangers lurk among the newcomers. Raajil is interesting for Godolphin, while Sir Michael Stoute takes the wraps off the regally-bred Evaluation, a Dubawi colt out of Ascot Gold Cup winner Estimate. His future may lie over further, but he has to enter the reckoning.
Prediction : 1st Forever Forward 2nd Evaluation 3rd Raajil

In Paradise ran well for a long way over this trip on debut at Newcastle and shaped as though in need of the return to this distance when flying home for third over 6f at Ripon. She has to be considered, as has Cider Apple, who was beaten less than a length over this trip at Chepstow last time, but preference is for CHARLIE'S JAMBOREE. Jamie Osborne's colt boxed on well to score over 6f on his nursery debut last time and a 5lb rise might underestimate him now he's upped in trip.
Prediction : 1st Charlies Jamboree 2nd In Paradise 3rd Cider Apple

14:30 Leicester

MONZA CITY was only headed inside the final furlong over 7f at Goodwood last time and a 3lb higher mark may not be an inconvenience for her now she's back a furlong in trip. Mariance is only 2lb higher than when beaten half a length on her nursery debut at Newmarket last week and has claims, while Mashmoom, Follow Suit and Rania all tackle this sphere for the first time after running solid races in defeat on their respective latest outings.
Prediction : 1st Monza City 2nd Mariance 3rd Mashmoom

15:00 Leicester

A couple of recent course winners have to be respected, as Dreamboat Annie made all to win convincingly over 7f here last time, while Grandstand struck over the same trip, albeit in a seller. Harry's Ridge has gone close the last twice at Ripon and Redcar so cannot be left out of calculations, but marginal preference is for WIFF WAFF. David Wintle's charge stayed on for second over the extended 5f at Bath last time and could be suited by the extra yardage in this.
Prediction : 1st Wiff Waff 2nd Dreamboat Annie 3rd Harrys Ridge

15:30 Leicester

MR WAGYU won as he pleased at Ayr last time, making every yard of the running to finish clear of the rest. John Quinn's charge is up 5lb for that effort but a repeat performance could be on the cards. Prince Of Rome got within a neck of success at Chepstow last time and has to be considered, though a bigger threat to the selection could be One Night Stand, who ran a solid second over this track and trip last time and gets another chance off the same mark.
Prediction : 1st Mr Wagyu 2nd One Night Stand 3rd Prince of Rome

16:00 Leicester

SORREL may be creeping up the handicap without winning, but she ran respectably when third at Goodwood in June and shrugged off a 4lb rise to get within a head of success at Newbury last time. Sir Michael Stoute's filly has another 3lb hike to contend with here, but the step up in trip might negate that. Punting won nicely at Sandown last time and has claims off 5lb higher, while Alemagna was not far away over further at Newbury latest and could go well in a first-time hood.
Prediction : 1st Sorrel 2nd Punting 3rd Alemagna

16:30 Leicester

Bullfinch progressed nicely from a fair debut at Newbury to get off the mark at Chelmsford last time, but he has to give 5lb to STUNNING BEAUTY here. Saeed bin Suroor's filly scooted clear to win with some authority on debut at Newmarket and the form has been boosted by the third and fourth from that race winning since. Lights On, a Cheveley Park-owned half-sister to a number of winners in France, looks the pick of the newcomers.
Prediction : 1st Stunning Beauty 2nd Bullfinch 3rd Lights On

17:00 Leicester

Furqaan took advantage of a falling mark to score at WIndsor last time but is up 4lb here, while Madame Tantzy has been raised 3lb for her near-miss at Newmarket. In contrast, DARGEL got within half a length of success at Newbury last time and has been left on the same rating, which could indicate that Clive Cox's gelding is ready to strike. Zap and Destroyer are others to note.
Prediction : 1st Dargel 2nd Furqaan 3rd Madame Tantzy
