SENITA showed signs of greenness on her debut when runner-up at Newmarket before running on nicely in the closing stages. John Gosden's filly is expected to improve for both the experience gained on that occasion and the step up a furlong. Lilac Road was fifth in the aforementioned contest and can enter the reckoning along with Coupe De Champagne, who is likely to know her job on debut.
Prediction : 1st Senita 2nd Lilac Road 3rd Coupe De Champagne

NAZUNA ran nicely on her racecourse bow when fifth at Goodwood at the end of last month and she can take a step forward from that effort with Roger Varian's string in excellent form at present. State Occasion (fifth) and Light Refrain (seventh) both shaped with promise in what appeared a warm Ascot novice last month and the pair are respected along with Turandot, a Frankel half-sister to Group 1 winner Amazing Maria, and Riches And Rubies, who is out of 2015 Pretty Polly heroine Diamondandrubies.
Prediction : 1st Nazuna 2nd State Occasion 3rd Light Refrain

VENTURA RASCAL made it two on the bounce when getting the better of Elixsoft at Beverley earlier in the month and the progressive three-year-old doesn't appear to have finished with his improvement. Harbour Vision ran well to finish third at Redcar last month and could have more to offer in first-time cheekpieces, while others worthy of consideration include Artistic Vision and Pattaya.
Prediction : 1st Ventura Rascal 2nd Harbour Vision 3rd Artistic Vision

15:25 Doncaster

QUEEN'S COURSE is unexposed and expected to build on a narrow defeat at Haydock earlier this month to strike on her second start for David O'Meara. Aliento has been raised 1lb for rattling the crossbar over this trip at Ayr last time and could feasibly finish on the premises, though bigger dangers may be the consistent Javelin, who found only subsequent winner Kodiac Pride too good at Lingfield, or Serenading, who steps up from 6f.
Prediction : 1st Queens Course 2nd Javelin 3rd Serenading

16:00 Doncaster

TINKER TOY defied a penalty for winning on debut at Salisbury when striking in a C&D novice contest last month and is expected to complete a hat-trick now going handicapping off a mark of 90. Magical Wish rattled the crossbar at Goodwood last time and should remain competitive off this 1lb higher perch, while it would come as no surprise to see the consistent Breanski win this contest for the third year in a row if he can step up on his last run at Beverley.
Prediction : 1st Tinker Toy 2nd Magical Wish 3rd Breanski

16:35 Doncaster

ORVAR hasn't been at his best the last twice, but he was third behind the progressive Lahore over C&D in June and would be hard to stop if running to that sort of level. He won on this card last year off the same mark, and won't mind whichever way the ground turns. Texting was more settled than usual during the preliminaries when scoring at Yarmouth ahead of Thegreatestshowman (third) last time and may well be able to confirm that form.
Prediction : 1st Orvar 2nd Texting 3rd Thegreatestshowman

17:05 Doncaster

Full Authority showed potential for David O'Meara last year when winning on debut at Chester, but he was disappointing when beaten in the National Stakes afterwards, and hasn't been witnessed on the track since. He is with Sir Michael Stoute now, and the market could be a good guide towards expectations. Starman was impressive when scoring at the first time of asking at Lingfield last month, but KING'S LYNN has stronger form. He beat Repartee and Toro Strike here (both rated 101 now) in a valuable sales race in September, and could take some stopping despite an absence of 338 days.
Prediction : 1st Kings Lynn 2nd Full Authority 3rd Starman

17:40 Doncaster

THIBAAN has shaped nicely in his career so far, including when second to the Royal Ascot winner and Oaks third Frankly Darling at Newcastle in June, and Sir Michael Stoute's War Front colt could be the answer to this competitive event on his handicap bow. A line can be put through Carlos Felix's recent Goodwood effort and he could be a factor if in the same form as when impressing at Ascot on his penultimate run. Nova Roma had excuses when letting down favourite backers at Newbury and is likely to be suited by the return to a sounder surface, with Ayr winner New Chapter and St Just others to note.
Prediction : 1st Thibaan 2nd Nova Roma 3rd Carlos Felix

18:10 Doncaster

POLYPHONY caught the eye in defeat on many occasions last season and rattled the crossbar on his reappearance over a mile here last month. John Mackie's four-year-old is interesting stepping up in trip off the same rating and has the assistance of an experienced apprentice. Starfighter drops back in distance having run out of steam over 1m4f at Leicester earlier this month, while Richard Fahey has won the last two renewals of this and saddles Toronado Queen and Defence Treaty.
Prediction : 1st Polyphony 2nd Starfighter 3rd Toronado Queen
