Sarsaparilla was a shade keen over 6f at Goodwood last time and may be better down to the minimum trip, but she might have to play second fiddle to BLACK SPARROW. Phil McEntee's sprinter has found only one too good on her last couple of outings over this trip at Wolverhampton and could prove a tough nut to crack. Belgium and newcomer King'slove complete the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Black Sparrow 2nd Sarsaparilla 3rd Belgium

PRAISED caught the eye when blowing all chance at the start on debut at Yarmouth before running on really well for second. If William Haggas' filly breaks anywhere near on terms here, she could be impossible to stop. Cotai Again was disappointing in handicap company on her return to action at Sandown but showed a lot more when second at Wolverhampton latest, while End Zone might come on for his reappearance effort and a return to the form of his Kempton third in September would see him go close.
Prediction : 1st Praised 2nd Cotai Again 3rd End Zone

Ginger Box was doing her best work late on at Chepstow last time and could improve for the step up in trip, while Affair won over an extended 1m5f at Chelmsford in June so it was perhaps a surprise that she appeared outpaced when stepped up to this trip at Catterick. STEEL HELMET gets the tentative vote, though, as he was a winner off just 1lb lower over C&D last season and could come on for his reappearance outing at Newcastle last month.
Prediction : 1st Steel Helmet 2nd Ginger Box 3rd Affair

17:25 Lingfield

TOTAL DISTRACTION showed plenty of improvement when tried in a pair of cheekpieces over a mile here last time and could build on that placed effort with a first-time visor now replacing the cheekpieces as he steps up to 1m2f. Birkie Queen wasn't beaten far when third at Bath and is respected, while Hi There Silver and the returning Iballisticvin are others who could get involved.
Prediction : 1st Total Distraction 2nd Birkie Queen 3rd Iballisticvin

17:55 Lingfield

It is very difficult to oppose VOLCANO BAY, who built on a pair of seconds when running out a comfortable winner at Yarmouth last week and there could be plenty more to come from the Universal filly. She is now tried in a pair of cheekpieces and her rider removes a handy 5lb. Broughtons Compass steps up in trip following a useful third at Kempton last month and heads the list of dangers, with Hughie Morrison's recent course runner-up, Truffle Mac, not far behind.
Prediction : 1st Volcano Bay 2nd Broughtons Compass 3rd Truffle Mac

18:25 Lingfield

TAWTHEEF is clearly heading in the right direction judged on his recent Bath fourth and the step up in trip could bring about further improvement as the Muhaarar gelding now joins the handicap ranks. Isayalittleprayer did well when third over further at Wolverhampton last time and is respected off the same mark, while it would be no surprise to see Selecto put in a more encouraging performance now switched to the all-weather.
Prediction : 1st Tawtheef 2nd Isayalittleprayer 3rd Selecto

ROYAL DYNASTY has been a model of consistency throughout 2020 and is 2lb lower than her most recent third at Newmarket to a progressive type, who has won since. The return to the all-weather is definitely in her favour and it would be no surprise if she could land her fifth career success. Tintoretto's recent fourth at York entitles him to be in the mix along with Alnaseem, who has been more consistent this season, and Blame Culture.
Prediction : 1st Royal Dynasty 2nd Tintoretto 3rd Alnaseem

19:25 Lingfield

RADETSKY made up plenty of ground when scoring over C&D on his most recent start and a 7lb rise from the assessor may not be enough to stop him from taking another step forward. Tagovailoa placed at Deauville last week and is of interest running in a handicap for the first time, while the return to Lingfield might aid the cause of Saucy Encore, whose best effort came over C&D when third on debut.
Prediction : 1st Radetsky 2nd Tagovailoa 3rd Saucy Encore

19:55 Lingfield

CONFRERIE wasn't disgraced on his most recent course appearance when fourth here last week and despite winning over a mile in June, the drop back to 7f may just suit him with leading amateur Simon Walker taking the ride. Perfect Symphony returned to winning ways at Wolverhampton at the end of last month and can enter calculations along with Letmestopyouthere, who is of interest coming back from a break.
Prediction : 1st Confrerie 2nd Perfect Symphony 3rd Letmestopyouthere
